Why You Should Go to a Chiropractor
West Windsor Chiropractor: Part of the chiropractic approach involves determining whether the body’s natural structure has caused problems with the functions in other areas of your body because of reactions in the nervous system. Structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord by affecting the normal communication of information from the brain to the rest of the body.
Along with specialized chiropractic treatment, J. Daniel Sheeley, D.C. and the team at West Windsor Chiropractic Center will provide you with rehabilitation exercises, advice on posture and stress management and nutritional advice. The most important aspect of chiropractic care is the comprehensive approach to treatment and management of a patient’s unique condition.
About Chiropractic Care
The non-invasive, drug-free, hands-on approach focuses on patient examination, diagnosis and customized treatment. Through diagnostics, we are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises to patients. We also recognize the importance and health-related benefits of nutrition and proper lifestyle choices.
At its most basic, chiropractors perform a therapeutic procedure called spinal adjustment or chiropractic manipulation.
In most cases, back pain emanates from the misalignment (called vertebral subluxation) of the spinal vertebrae. The subluxation, basically an impinged nerve, causes irritations of the spinal nerve which in turn inhibits the normal nerve flow from the brain to the tissue. A gentle chiropractic adjustment is used to realign the spine.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
In short, Absolutely! Compared to other medical treatments, chiropractic care is by far the safest. In fact, insurance companies who use risk management to determine their rates, rate chiropractors by far as the lowest insurance premium of all health care providers. Hundreds of thousands of chiropractic adjustments are made each year and only a very few are registered as complaints.

Can chiropractors refer patients to other specialists?
Chiropractors are part of a network of health-care professionals. Like other doctors, they will make referrals for patients when necessary. Chiropractors are trained to recognize risk factors and signs of disease that are outside their scope of treatments and they will not hesitate to make a referral when it’s in a patient’s best interest.
