Chiropractic is based on the premise that the vertebrae (bones) in your spine go out of position, pinching on the nerve supply that goes throughout your body, causing pain and dysfunction.
Dr. Rizzo GENTLY realigns the spine by doing a chiropractic adjustment. An adjustment consists of relaxing the muscles and putting the bones back in position to properly realign the spine and restore the body's function. This alleviates pain and discomfort to the patient.
The main pathway of your nervous system is the spinal cord, which is protected by the spine. Chiropractors believe that a healthy aligned spine creates proper blood flow and nerve supply to the body's organs, muscles and tissues.
Dr. Rizzo specializes in Sports Medicine and soft tissue work. This technique relaxes the muscles, which are usually in spasm, and allows Dr. Rizzo to gently reposition the vertebrae of the spine to maintain proper alignment. This helps posture and overall health of the patient.
