Chiropractic literally means to treat or heal by hand. Chiropractors are trained to determine what tissues are specifically causing your pain or discomfort. There are many different types of chiropractic treatments that can be applied for each individual case. Chiropractors rely primarily on spinal manipulation (also known as "the adjustment"), therapeutic strengthening exercises, and myofascial treatments to reduce tension on the bones, nerves, joints, muscles, and fascia. However, chiropractic is bigger than just treating your pain. It is a positive proactive way of thinking that promotes health and wellness. Chiropractors at Jacksonville Beach Chiropractic are here to assist you as your healthcare doctor. Not your sick care doctor. We promote a healthy lifestyle by assisting you with education and choice on nutrition, exercise, weight loss, and stress reduction issues.
