Feel Better Without Using Medication
Even with severe and chronic conditions, you can often avoid surgery and prescription medication when you receive chiropractic care. Dr. Steve VeGodsky's Chiropractic Family Wellness Center will help you achieve your health goals.
Dedicated chiropractic treatment
Chiropractic works directly with your nervous system which controls and coordinates all of your body's functions. The joints of your spine can cause irritation to your nervous system if they are stiff or misaligned resulting in pain, numbness, weakness, and other impairments.
Dr. VeGodsky will restore the proper function of your nervous system through the use of expert chiropractic adjustments which will aid your body’s ability to heal itself.
How does an adjustment work?
A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a specific direction in order to restore proper movement and position to a joint. The procedure is an extremely safe and effective way to relieve pain, reduce stiffness, and restore proper nerve, muscle, and joint function.
To properly evaluate everything, chiropractic care begins by taking your case history into account. This is followed by a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination.
Occasionally, X-rays are taken to rule out a fracture, dislocation, or any other spinal pathology. The findings of these examinations are explained and a course of treatment may be recommended.
Well educated and ongoing education
Chiropractors are very well educated. After undergraduate studies, today's chiropractor completes an additional four-year program which includes over 4,500 hours of curriculum with emphasis on anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, X-ray, spinal adjusting techniques, nutrition, and other related subjects.
Difficult national board and state licensing examinations must be passed. Continuing education is always ongoing.
