Offering a Holistic Approach
The science and art of chiropractic care with its neurological focus was officially established over 100 years ago; however spinal manipulation has been documented for thousands of years. Chiropractic care focuses on finding and correcting the cause of dysfunction in the body via specific spinal and extremity adjustments.
Intricate relationships exist between the brain and the spinal cord to origins of dysfunction. These dysfunctions can be caused by stress, toxicity, injury, and diet, among others. When a dysfunction occurs in the body, the natural flow of energy is interrupted. This can lead to other symptoms if left untreated; therefore it is important to treat the “whole person” and not just a particular symptom.
Dr. Mayfield treats dysfunctions with specific chiropractic adjustments, whole food supplements, lifestyle changes, and other therapies.
Chiropractic treatment has been used to successfully treat fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, sciatica pain, colic in babies, scoliosis, chronic ear infections, bone degeneration, and headaches, among others.
Chiropractic care is not only for those who have serious conditions. More and more people are seeking chiropractic treatment as a way to prevent future problems and maintain optimum spinal health. By scheduling periodic visits, Dr Mayfield can check your spine for fixations or misalignments and make any needed adjustments. Mild misalignments are often painless, but can lead to increased difficulties if left untreated. This is why it is important to maintain a periodic check-up schedule.
