If you are looking for a chiropractor, Austin TX residents can trust Whitehead Chiropractic. Our team provides comprehensive and custom care to each of our patients.

What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a natural way of reducing pain and improving quality of life. It is a proven method for helping people to recover from spine-related health problems. Chiropractic is the largest, drug free and non-surgical health care profession in the country.

How Do Chiropractic Services Work?

Accidents, sports injuries, home stress, and repetitive work alter the function of the body’s natural nervous system. The body just cannot adapt to these changes and the joints in the spine lock up. This restriction, also known as a misalignment, often results in pressure on the spinal nerve. With chiropractic care, our goal is to determine what structural distortions are occurring, called subluxations, and restore the proper alignment in an effort to improve function. If you have pain, swelling, numbness, tingling or spasms of the spine, neck, and back, you may benefit from this type of treatment.

How Does a Chiropractor Help?

Chiropractors are specially trained to first evaluate and then provide treatment for spinal conditions like these. Hospitals and private practice doctors frequently recommend the services of a chiropractor to address these types of chronic back, neck, spine, and other nerve-related pain. The goal of a chiropractor is to treat not just the pain, but the underlying cause of it without the use of surgery or medications. The benefits extend beyond this and may include reduction of headaches, improvement of jaw pain, improvement of carpal tunnel syndrome, reduction of tingling in the legs and arms, and pain reduction for sciatica sufferers. And, overall, your wellbeing can improve through the help of chiropractic care.
