What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a natural form of health care focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. Our Reding, PA chiropractors focus on the relationship between the body's structure—mainly the spine—and its functioning, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation.

Each year more than 15 million North Americans choose chiropractic for safe, natural and effective relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, extremity pain, poor overall health, low energy levels and much more.

The Goal of Chiropractic

Due to chiropractic treatments being primarily applied to the spinal region, many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only neck and back issues. While our Reading, PA chiropractors quickly and effectively eliminates neck and back pain, it's not his only goal. The Doctors objective is to make sure he helps all individiuals restore and optimize their health.

What The Chiropractor Does

Our Chiropractors are primarily concerned with locating and treating vertebral subluxations.

A vertebral subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural articular (joint) change that compromises the integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.

Using a number of unique and highly refined skills, Dr. Stuart Himmelstein checks the patient's spine for any misalignments, fixations or other abnormalities. If any of these are detected, the doctor will generally apply a gentle force in a corrective manner to the affected spinal area.

Our Doctors use several techniques to identify and treat these spinal abnormalities and optimize overall health. In addition to spinal adjustive techniques, soft tissue techniques such as massage, dietary and nutritional counseling, physical therapies, and lifestyle modification programs are commonly employed

How Chiropractic Differs

There are significant differences between the way chiropractors and medical doctors approach health ailments.

When evaluating and treating their patients, the doctors take a holistic approach which involves identifying and correcting the cause(s) of his patient's ailment. In contrast, the medical approach tends to focus more on the treating the symptoms of a condition rather than focusing primarily on the actual cause(s).

Our Chiropractors believe the best course of action is correcting the cause of the problem, which provides significant long-term benefits over only treating the symptoms.
