Dr. Kim Tran, D.C. provides chiropractic care to people in Richfield. We regularly hear from many people who have never been to a chiropractor. If you’ve never had chiropractic care, you might be surprised about how it can help you improve your health.
Chiropractic was first developed in the 1890s, and it works by restoring the normal and healthy functioning of your central nervous system by adjusting the spine. The term “chiropractic” originates with the Greek words “chiro” and “praktikos,” which mean “hand” and “practice.” Your Lawrenceville, Georgia chiropractor helps you by using natural, hands-on care that doesn’t involve risky drugs or surgery.

Chiropractic care revolves around one thing and that’s your nervous system. Why? Because your entire body revolves around one thing and that is…you guessed it, your nervous system. It is this system that controls every single cell, piece of tissue, and vital organs in your body. Without its proper function, every aspect of your body may be affected.
The nervous system includes your brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Spreading from tips of your fingers all the way down to the bottoms of your feet. Chiropractic care is a science and a philosophy that stresses the importance of the link between one’s nervous system and the overall health of the body.
Unlike the brain, the spinal cord does not have a thick skull protecting it from outside forces. The 24 moving vertebrate that surround your spine are virtually defenseless when a sudden force impacts the body. Once something knocks one of these bones out of place or affects its proper motion, the whole body pays the price. This is known as the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Basically, the nerve’s signals are interfered with because of the moved vertebrae.
Chiropractic care is the process of identifying areas in which the spine is misaligned and then working to correct them over time. By applying the right amount of pressure in the right place, spinal function is improved and any displacements are corrected. Chiropractors understand that the body is its own best doctor and rather than healing from the outside, they simply work to reduce any internal factors that are preventing the body from healing on its own. Chiropractic care corrects the underlying cause through treatment rather than covering up the symptoms as most drugs do.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” — Thomas Edison
A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method for back pain.
Spinal manipulation is relieves pressure on joints, reduces inflammation, and improves nerve function. It has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C. Today, spinal manipulation is used to treat conditions such as allergies, menstrual cramps and headaches.
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.
When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.
Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it becomes able to respond and perform as it was built to do.
