When your doctors were studying for their degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange Florida, one of the first things they were told was to develop their “elevator talk.” The young doctors-to-be looked at each other, raised their collective eyebrows and shrugged, not having any idea what an elevator talk was. Now, graduated and licensed, we finally understand what that wise Doctor meant. Imagine yourself in an elevator (or at an athletic event, grocery store, Starbucks) with someone who has never been to a chiropractor and has no idea what chiropractic can do. They rub their neck and make a comment about pain or discomfort. What advice would you give them? How would you explain what your chiropractors do and how they help you? Well, here is you’re your answer…Gulfside Chiropractic Doctors find the cause of your pain instead of treating the symptoms. Most patients have experienced the medical merry-go-round at some point in their lives. Go to a doctor, they talk to you for a few minutes and write a prescription. If you don’t get better, you go to a different doctor for a new medication, and so on. Our system is different. We spend time with each patient and complete a thorough, hands-on examination with an orthopedic and neurological evaluation in order to find the root of your complaint.
Gulfside Chiropractic Doctors treat the cause, not just the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on the principle that your body heals from the inside out. There is a strong relationship between structure (namely the skeleton) and function (your nervous system). When there is a skeletal misalignment, the function of the nervous system is affected. This can show up as muscle spasm, weakness, pain, numbness, or tingling. It can also affect autonomic functions like digestion, breathing, and sexual function. By treating your skeletal misalignments, your Doctors are optimizing the function of your nervous system.
