Chiropractic Care

Mention chiropractic care, and you’ll likely think of a treatment for back and neck pain. Sure, chiropractic is remarkably effective at alleviating pain, but it does so much more.

A Natural Healing Art

Chiropractic is a drug-free, nonsurgical healing art. Our focus is on the spine and nerve system.

A misalignment in the spine could interfere with the body’s function by pinching off specific nerves. The corresponding areas that were controlled by those nerve signals would then begin to get sick. This breakdown in function is common when critical messages from the brain to the body can’t get through.

Our job is to locate such interference and work to position the vertebra back into alignment—thus taking the pressure off the nerve.

With chiropractic, your brain is aligned so it can properly communicate with every organ and system in your body. When that communication takes place, your body can then get well.

Conditions That Chiropractic Can Address

Here are some of the many conditions that respond well to chiropractic care:

  • Arm and shoulder pain
  • Back pain (lower and upper)
  • Disc problems
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Sciatica
  • Tingling and numbness

Pain Is Just a Symptom

At Longie Chiropractic, we try to switch people from thinking of pain to problem. Dr. Rick explains: “If I stand on your foot, it would probably hurt. I would ask, ‘Is the pain the problem or is me standing on your foot the problem,'” he said. Most people would say that standing on their foot is the problem and to fix it, Dr. Rick needs to get off their foot.

“I try to help patients understand that the pain is a symptom—a signal that something is wrong but it’s not what is wrong,” he adds. By getting to the root cause of your condition, Dr. Rick can help restore your health.
