Chiropractic Care for So Much More than Backaches

Many people think chiropractic care is primarily to relieve an aching back or neck. At Bay Colony Chiropractic, in addition to back and neck related issues, including headaches, whiplash, sciatica, and pinched nerves, they also provide treatment to help reduce frequency and severity of allergies, improve the functioning of the immune system, relieve pressure and restore joint movement affected by osteoarthritis, and reduce the pain of fi - bromyalgia or carpal tunnel syndrome.

The chiropractic way of looking at the body is based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. Because the body is all interconnected, many things going wrong with the body can be traced to misalignment in the spine. On Dr. Sanders’ website, the 3D Spine interactive page shows which organs and nerves are affected by which area of the spine. Very cool!

“Because chiropractors understand that although our patients may be diagnosed with the same condition, they respond very differently to treatments, we tailor a specific plan of action to meet the needs, goals and unique medical and physical condition of each individual,” says Dr. Sanders. In addition to adjustments, Dr. Sanders’ offi ce also provides chiropractic massage, therapeutic exercises, custom foot orthotics, and more.
