Why Chiropractic?

At Livewell Family Chiropractic Center we understand that good health depends upon a normally functioning nervous system. Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body’s inability to adapt to its environment.

At Livewell we address diseases and illness not by the use of drugs and chemicals, but by locating and adjusting a musculoskeletal area of the body which is functioning improperly.

Dr. French uses a standard procedure of examination to diagnose a patient’s condition and arrive at a course of treatment. Dr. French uses the same time-honored methods of consultation, case history, physical examination and x-ray. In addition, Dr. French provides a careful chiropractic structural examination, paying particular attention to the spine.

The examination of the spine to evaluate structure and function is what makes chiropractic different from other health care procedures. Displacements or derangements of the spinal column, causing irritation to spinal nerve roots are often what cause malfunctions in the human body. Chiropractic teaches that reducing or eliminating this irritation to spinal nerves can cause your body to operate more efficiently and more comfortably.

Dr. French also places an emphasis on nutrition, fitness, wellness and lifestyle modifications for promoting physical and mental health. At Livewell Family Chiropractic Center we do not treat the individual as a separate entity but the body as a whole and we look forward to becoming a partner in your health care needs.
