I have very little discomfort and am less stiff. Greenwich Wellness is now our

What is Chiropractic Care?
Officially founded in the 1890s, Chiropractic is a natural method of health care which has been shown to relieve pain in the nervous system and have positive life changing effects on your overall health. However, one of the
earliest doctors, Hippocrates (460BC- 370BC) understood the healing process
between health and the adjustment of the spine. He was known to cure diseases
by correcting the spine.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care is one of the most
effective treatments for several conditions. The following are just a few of
the conditions that chiropractic care at Greenwich Wellness can treat:
Infant Ear Infections/Colic
Pregnancy Back Pain
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
The adjustment consists of restoring joint mobility by applying pressure
to the area that is out of alignment and allowing the bone to align itself
correctly. The adjustment is a tremendously safe method of health care, as
it’s a non-surgical, drug-free approach. The goal of an adjustment is to
restore the body to its natural state of optimal health.
A unique treatment plan will be created for each patient and adjustments
will be modified as the patient heals. The rewards of chiropractic care
are endless and the real benefits come into play when you make chiropractic
care a part of your lifestyle.
Who is a Chiropractic Doctor?
Chiropractic doctors (DC) are committed to viewing health as an interactive
process that involves the whole person, addressing each patient’s lifestyle
and health goals. They believe that your body has what it needs to heal
itself by providing it with the proper nutrition and alignment of the spine.
Doctors of Chiropractic complete a demanding curriculum at an accredited
chiropractic college with a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory
and clinical experience. All doctors must past national board exams and state
exams before practicing.
As Thomas Edison wrote, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine,
but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet,
and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
