Understanding Chiropractic

Though you are likely aware of chiropractors, you may be wondering what they do. You may be curious about why seeing a chiropractor is a good idea. How can chiropractic help you?

A Car Analogy

Perhaps the easiest way to describe chiropractic care is with the help of a car analogy. Having a vehicle necessitates regular maintenance to make sure that it continues to run efficiently. In addition to regular check-ups, once in a while you may be forced to take it in for repair, like when a part stops working or after an auto collision.

This is not all that different than your body. Proactively taking care of yourself is the best, but sometimes you have an accident (like a fall or a car crash) and you should visit a health practitioner to get your body back in good shape.

Of course, you can't replace your body when it's broken. With your body, there's no going out to buy a brand new one or trade it in when the damage is too costly. So, keeping your body in top shape ought to be a goal if you are going to expect it to look terrific and run smoothly well into your golden years.

How Chiropractic Can Ensure Your "Car" is in  Excellent Condition

Since a doctor of chiropractic addresses spinal health, attending regular care will help you to get and maintain excellent health. It will lower your likelihood of suffering from back and neck pain that can negatively affect your quality of life. Chiropractic care also keeps your body running as smoothly as possible.

Your spinal column houses your spinal cord which forms a connection between your brain and all systems via the spinal nerves that branch out into all areas of the body. So, if you have a spinal misalignment, other parts of the body are affected.  Because spinal dysfunction upsets the central nervous system, other systems — like your digestive, respiratory, or reproductive systems — may not work as efficiently either.

So make visits with a chiropractor a priority. Call (973) 845-6282 to set up an appointment today with Dr. Rivano in Florham Park, NJ. You'll be in good hands – regardless of whether you are just in need of maintenance or need a tune-up!
