Wellness Care in Harrisburg Improves Patients' Overall Health

wellness-care.jpg

People who think of chiropractic adjustment strictly in terms of relief for back pain or neck pain will be surprised to learn that it can also play a critical role in wellness care. Here at Skocik Chiropractic, we help our patients from Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA maintain a higher level of overall health by administering the appropriate preventative care for each patient’s specific needs and challenges. 

Our “whole-body” approach focuses on optimizing the body’s functionality, including nerve function, immune resistance and musculoskeletal strength. While we are happy to treat injuries or illnesses, we believe that the most sensible and beneficial strategy is one of preventative care.

Value of Wellness Care for Patients from Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA

One key to wellness lies in the relationship between spinal alignment and nerve function. The central nervous system controls the routing of every command or sensation sent or received within the body. The hub of this complex communications network, the spinal cord, runs through the spinal column, with large nerve roots extending outward and branching into countless nerves. A normal, straight spinal alignment permits the nerves to operate freely, transmitting nerve signals that control everything from your immune system and hormone levels to arm and leg movement. But impairment of the nerves due to a spinal misalignment, herniated disc or other issue can cause faulty or inadequate nerve function, causing back pain, neck pain, loss of muscle control or sensation and even chronic illness.

A wellness program seeks to stop these problems before they can really start by correcting even the tiniest underlying causes. By pinpointing and correcting small spinal misalignment in their earliest stages, Dr. Albert Skocik can help the spine maintain optimal state at all times, helping to prevent the chronic back pain or neck pain that might otherwise develop. A typical checkup may be preceded by a posture evaluation and consideration of any past or present health issues that maybe be troubling you. Periodic “maintenance adjustments” can help you avoid the need for more extensive sessions later on to correct more advanced musculoskeletal problems.

But chiropractic wellness care not only helps prevent pain and weakness in the back, neck or limbs; by keeping your nervous system in top working order it can also prevent a host of other health problems. Allergies, asthma, hormonal imbalances, hypertension, diabetes, digestive disorders, chronic fatigue -- the list of ailments that can be controlled or even eliminated through the restoration and maintenance of proper nerve function is practically endless. We complement our chiropractic work with massage therapy, which can boost the circulation and keep your muscles flexible and relaxed. If you have a chronic pain condition, these techniques can help you manage that pain more effectively without relying on painkilling drugs.

Staying healthy is always a more attractive option than visiting the clinic over and over in response to a barrage of illnesses. We encourage residents from Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA looking for an ongoing natural wellness program to contact our office (717) 540-8448 for an initial consultation.

This examination is entirely FREE!
