How Does Chiropractic Work?

Curious About Chiropractic Treatment?

Almost everyone has had the experience of getting up in the morning with an aching back. Most people tend to shake it off and work through the minor annoyance. If you experience frequent lower back pain, neck, shoulder pain, or have frequent headaches and find it difficult to sit or stand comfortably for more than just a few minutes, then you understand just how defibrillating pain can be.

How does chiropractic work?

physical therapy chiropractor back spinal painThe popping sound associated with traditional chiropractic adjustment actually represents the beneficial alleviation of built-up pressure between spinal vertebrae. However, the sounds are not the important part. Chiropractic was founded on the principle that the body is meant to "work," and that treatment for pain should be natural, non-invasive, drug-free and effective.

"Sleeping wrong," slouching, stress and sudden, thoughtless movements can cause pain; changing bad habits and altering your lifestyle not only alleviates pain, but also establishes patterns that lead to lasting wellness. That, in a nutshell, is the basis of chiropractic care.

Our Asheville chiropractor is dedicated to helping our patients achieve lifelong strength, health and flexibility. We utilize state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques, including spinal adjustment, in tandem with other procedures, therapy and advice. Our focus is on spinal function and correction because it is the "center" of bodily movement, and we regularly schedule public screenings in our area to emphasize the importance of proper posture and movement. We help both children and adults increase awareness of spinal health in an effort to minimize strain, increase suppleness and prevent injury.

We instruct our patients on proper exercise and its lifetime benefits, offer nutritional counseling and comprehensive lifestyle advice. Chiropractic therapy is an integrated approach to living well, not a one-step method of pain relief. Do you have a question about your backache? Why not schedule a consultation today? Let Lawson become your chiropractor in Asheville. We'll help change your "now" to make your future better.

New patients receive free consultation on first visit.

  • "I completely and totally rely on Dr. Sarah and Dr. Kenton to keep me upright and pain free! Not only do they keep my back "in line" and functioning so that I can work and play as much as I want, they always treat me like I'm the most special patient they have. It doesn't matter when I call, they always get me into their office as soon as possible when I am having a problem. *I do not believe that I would be as healthy today without the care I recieve at Lawson Chiropractic* --- they are the absolute best and I love them both!!!"
