Drs. Kristal & Curtis Weinstein: Complete Chiropractic & Spinal Rehab
Why you should go to a chiropractor
Chiropractic care helps restore the body’s natural structure after lifestyle, injury or other elements have misaligned it. The spine is like the major highway of your nervous system and any blockades can be detrimental to your health. Having a misaligned spine can not only cause discomfort or pain, but can also cause problems with other areas of your body. These problems occur when there are interruptions in the normal communication of information between the brain and the body, and chiropractic care can correct that.
What is corrective chiropractic care?
Corrective chiropractic care is a completely different approach to reaching and maintaining the goal of optimal health. As true corrective care chiropractors, Dr. Kristal and Dr. Curtis will evaluate the central nervous system and the function of the spine. Their evaluation goes beyond trauma and pathology and looks to body function. Since the nervous system controls every cell in the body, it must work optimally for an individual to lead a healthy life.
Corrective vs. relief care
There are 2 basic forms of chiropractic care and they are relief care and corrective care. While relief care focuses on pain control, corrective care will work on the underlying structural abnormalities that are causing the pain in order to provide for a more permanent change.
The first mission is to get our patients out of pain; this is the relief care portion of chiropractic. Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person’s care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. However, Dr. Kristal and Dr. Curtis will continue to provide treatments (on a less frequent basis) in order to prevent the injury from happening again.
Our state-of-the-art facility is highly unique in that we combine the latest treatments in physical therapy, chiropractic care and other non-invasive treatment modalities into a single, blended treatment program that allows us to provide superior corrective care and convenience to our patients.
X-rays at our facility provide for further insight into the state of our patients’ health:
X-rays are taken on most patients to give Dr. Curtis Weinstein and Dr. Kristal Weinstein an inside look at what is going on with the bone structure of the entire spine and surrounding skeletal structure. From this x-ray, we can determine your current spine angles, as well as assess the potential for further issues which may require additional tests, such as an MRI.
