Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. Chiropractic care restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body, primarily the spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body via the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference.

Will Chiropractic Help You?
That question can only be answered after a thorough evaluation by a qualified Doctor of Chiropractic – no one else can tell you whether chiropractic will help your condition – including other medical professionals who are not trained in chiropractic.

Even so, you can get an idea of whether or not your condition is generally helped by chiropractic. Here are some common ailments that chiropractic treatment has been shown to help with.

Addressing the Root of the Problem

The nervous system serves as the body’s wiring. If this wiring is inhibited, the signal does not reach the intended body part, and illness may result. Such interferences can manifest anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to that hand originate. A qualified chiropractor can examine the spine for interferences and remove them through controlled techniques.

Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship of structure and function (as coordinated by the nervous system), and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of your health.

Chiropractic Education and Licensing

Today’s Doctors of Chiropractic are highly trained professionals. Chiropractic education and licensing is comparable to other doctor level health programs, including medicine, dentistry and podiatry.

Dr. LeBlanc has been licensed by the Louisiana Board of Chiropractic Examiners since 1999.

Pregnancy and the Chiropractic Lifestyle

This period of rapid development, hormonal changes, the laxity of connective ligaments, and shifting of weight-bearing structures, may cause pregnant women to experience low back pain.

Besides helping to relieve the discomfort many expectant mothers experience, chiropractic care helps normalize nervous system function. This is an important component of overall good health.

The benefits of chiropractic care may also be noticed during delivery. Many chiropractic patients report that their deliveries were faster and more comfortable than their deliveries prior to chiropractic care!

Dr. LeBlanc will take special precautions with you during your pregnancy. Modifications to the table or adjusting techniques are made during each stage of pregnancy. Dr. LeBlanc is trained in the location, reduction and stabilization of the vertebral subluxation complex, which can be related to many of the uncomfortable symptoms associated with pregnancy and labor.

Pamper yourself and your baby with regular chirpractic checkups.
