Chiropractic Care in Athens PA

Spinal Decompression in Athens PA

At HORN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC IN ATHENS, PENNSYLVANIA, our doctors and team strive to educate our patients on what chiropractic is.

Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It’s based on the idea that THE BODY IS SELF-SUSTAINING AND SELF-HEALING. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body.  When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is not optimal.

Chiropractors practice a DRUG-FREE, HANDS-ON APPROACH TO HEALTH CARE that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems that lead to a lowered state of health.   These neuromusculoskeletal complaints include but are but not limited to back pain, neck pain, arm and leg pain, and headaches.

Chiropractic Can Help Many Conditions

AT HORN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC, we don’t just treat neck and low back pain.  Our chiropractors are experienced in helping patients with conditions such as allergies, asthma, insomnia, gastrointestinal issues and many more.

DR. HORN, DR. CALLEAR, AND DR. TAYLOR GO ABOVE AND BEYOND to identify and address the underlying cause of your health challenges, rather than treating symptoms. They have extensive diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend and incorporate therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises into their treatment protocol, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counseling.

The CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT is the primary treatment used by the doctors at Horn Family Chiropractic.  The purpose of an adjustment is to restore joint mobility and nerve function by manually applying controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of a soft tissue injury (i.e. sprains, strains, inflammation).

THESE SOFT TISSUE INJURIES can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time.  In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the patient.

CHIROPRACTIC SPECIFIC ADJUSTMENTS help restore mobility and decrease nerve irritation which alleviates pain and muscle tightness and allows tissues to heal.

HERE AT HORN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC, WE UNDERSTAND THAT EACH PATIENT IS AN INDIVIDUAL WITH UNIQUE NEEDS.
