We feel that chiropractic care is a positive lifestyle choice especially in an active AZ environment. You are in a position to choose to make an investment in wellness. Now is the ideal time before you’re in pain, or if you are suffering pain now we can can assist in both cases. At AFC Chiropractic our doctors and professional staff are committed to helping people of all ages restore and maintain their health through chiropractic care and other natural solutions for common health problems and issues resulting from accidents and injury to the spine.
At AFC Chiropractic in Phoenix and throughout the valley our professional doctors and staff emphasize the management of the musculoskeletal system of the body without the use of drugs or surgery. This wellness-based model of chiropractic care begins with the spine and nervous system – the center of control for the body. A properly functioning nervous system is essential to the body’s performance, and a healthy spine helps you feel and look good. The proper care of the spine and nervous system through manual therapy may provide you with a healthy alternative to the typical medical model, offering you an alternative to pain relief and management.
Adjustments to the spine, and manual therapies to joints and soft tissues are just part of the overall wellness care provided through AFC Chiropractic. Our teams of licensed professionals work to motivate each person to take an active role in the restoration and maintenance of their own health, providing nutritional counseling, massage and rehabilitation therapy, and education on the use of chiropractic care throughout one’s life. It’s a team approach and our shared commitment to your improved health that will deliver results. Care can begin at any age. At AFC Chiropractic we are passionate about expanding the use of regular chiropractic care – from newborns and children to adults well into their senior years. Regular chiropractic care can be a part of your personal health maintenance program, helping you identify and correct small problems before they become serious.
At AFC Chiropractic, we begin with a consultative visit to understand what health issues concern you most. We’ll ask you about arthritis, asthma, bunions, fibromyalgia, foot pain, golf or tennis elbow, hand pain, headaches, hip pain, knee pain, lower back or mid-back pain, pinched nerves, pulled or cramping muscles, shin splints, shoulder pain or tension, and tingling or numbness; and discuss your flexibility and posture with you. Additionally, if you have been injured in an auto accident or have a sports or work-related injury resulting in whiplash; or back, neck or joint pain, chiropractic care may provide an alternative or complementary solution to your recovery.
Accidents, slips, falls, improper lifting and repetitive motions may lead to vertebral subluxation, a misalignment of the bones of the spine, and accompanying stress, irritation or damage to nerves, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and discs. Depending on the nerves affected, you may experience soreness, stiffness, headache, pain, tingling or numbness. Subluxations may also be caused by poor posture, weak muscles or muscle tension brought on by stress. This misalignment of the cervical vertebrae may cause irritation or damage to the spinal nerves, reducing the functionality of the body’s nervous system. A thorough examination and analysis will identify the location and severity of subluxations. Chiropractic adjustments – the use of hands to manipulate, massage and mobilize the spine and related tissues – remove interferences with the nervous system, reconnecting the body and brain and allowing for the natural ability of the body to heal.
AFC Chiropractic is dedicated to helping educate people about chiropractic care. The more you know, the more confident you will become in including chiropractic care as a choice in your healthy lifestyle. When you don’t know what to do – or are not sure and are looking for answers, we welcome you to the opportunity to understand what is going on with your health and in your life. When you are ready for alternatives and a trusted partner in your care, the doctors of AFC Chiropractic offer hope, and the chance to allow you to discover your body’s own potential inherent recuperative powers through chiropractic care.
