What is Chiropractic Treatment?

Marshall Chiropractic can help decrease your pain and increase your range of motion. We make sure your spine is moving correctly and in proper alignment. Marshall Tulsa Chiropractic treatment is based on the scientific fact that your brain and spinal cord control everything in your body.

When you have a misalignment in your spinal column, the nervous system signal is interrupted. This can cause severe pain. Chiropractors gently re-align the spine to remove this interruption.


How can a Chiropractor in Tulsa help me?

Chiropractic treatments consist of gentle adjustments to the spine. These adjustments are painless. There is often a feeling of ease after the adjustment. Pressure is relieved from spinal nerves and discs in your spine. Dr. Marshall is trained to give many different kinds of adjustments. An example would be adjustments to the arms and legs for sore shoulders and knees.

There are 24 movable segments of the human spine. When one or more of these segments are not moving properly then that particular segment needs a chiropractic adjustment. Once an adjustment is made to the spine the segment can move through its full range of motion again allowing the muscles to relax. Always remember, movement is the key to life!
