Gentle Chiropractic: Santa Rosa Doctor Uses Low-Force Approach
Dr. Casey Carter, a medically licensed Doctor of Chiropractic, practices gentle, low-force chiropractic to help patients recover from various conditions.
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts concerned with human health and disease processes.
Doctors of Chiropractic recognize that, over time, individuals can build physical, mental and emotional habits which can constrict muscles, glands, nerves and the circulatory system.
When spinal joints are out of alignment or not moving properly, it can affect your health by irritating delicate spinal nerves. When this occurs, your brain is alerted that something is wrong.
This produces various symptoms, including pain, as nerve signals are sent to your muscles to stabilize and protect the area. The result may be stiffness, soreness or even general tiredness. In other cases, nerves or blood flow can be restricted, which may result in a variety of serious health conditions.
Instead of masking pain with drugs, which can be dangerous to your health, Dr. Carter uses low-force chiropractic treatments. Gentle chiropractic, which contrasts with aggressive, high-force manipulation methods, works with the body’s own natural healing abilities.
Chiropractic care seeks to locate the source of your symptoms and address the underlying cause, so the problem doesn’t keep recurring.
Using her extensive academic and clinical training, Dr. Carter focuses special attention on the physiological and biochemical aspects of the body including structural, spinal, musculoskeletal, neurological, vascular, nutritional, emotional and environmental conditions.
This low-force chiropractic approach helps release chronically tight muscles and joints, re-establish structural integrity, and identify internal or external factors that compromise the body systems.
The result can be immediate relief, although it may take the body time to heal and restore itself over multiple sessions.
