Chiropractic refers to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and is the foundation of physical, nutritional and mental health. The goal of chiropractic care is to eliminate misalignments in the body– to increase range of motion, reduce nerve irritability (pain and sensitivity) and improve overall function of the entire body. Chiropractors use a variety of gentle chiropractic approaches which may or may not cause an audible release “crack.” However the main goal when adjusting the spine is to establish and maintain balance within the body.
The benefits of chiropractic care include better joint mobility, posture and coordination; enhanced nerve function, relaxation and ability to heal; and reduced neck, back or radiating pain and muscle tension.
Conditions Commonly Treated by Chiropractic Care
Mid Back Pain
Low Back Pain
Extremity Pain (plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, etc)
Issues of the Immune System
Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs or perform surgical procedures. If medically indicated, they do refer patients to other healthcare providers for these needs. Chiropractic care, manual soft tissue manipulation and healthy nutritional practices, along with cold laser therapy, are key to effectively helping patients of all ages heal naturally and improve their quality of life.
Dr. LaToya Evans, now with Cold Laser Relief in Great Neck, uses hands-on spinal adjustments, among many techniques, to ensure proper spinal alignment which helps the musculoskeletal and nervous systems function optimally. This enhances one’s energy level and sports performance, promotes a healthy immune system, and reduces the quality and intensity of many types of pain.
