Like conventional medicine, chiropractic is based upon scientific principles of diagnosis through testing and empirical observations. Treatment is based upon the practitioner's rigorous training and clinical experience. Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, chiropractic attempts to improve the health of the individual in an effort to avoid illness in the first place. Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. This is one of the main reasons for the big upsurge in the popularity of chiropractic. People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; one that will help them achieve and maintain optimal health.

What truly differentiates doctors of chiropractic from any other healthcare professionals is the fact that chiropractors are the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat what are called spinal subluxations. The word 'subluxation' comes from the Latin words meaning 'to dislocate' (luxare) and 'somewhat or slightly' (sub). So the term 'vertebral subluxation' literally means a slight dislocation (misalignment) of the bones in the spine. Although this term was adequate in the 1800s when much was still misunderstood about the human body, today the word 'subluxation' has changed in meaning to capture the complex of neurological, structural, and functional changes that occur when a bone is 'out of place.' For this reason chiropractors usually refer to subluxations of the spine as the "Vertebral Subluxation Complex", or "VSC" for short.

The chiropractic approach to healthcare is holistic, meaning that it addresses your overall health. It recognizes that many lifestyle factors such as exercise, diet, rest, and environment impact your health. For this reason, chiropractors recommend changes in lifestyle' eating, exercise, and sleeping habits in addition to chiropractic care.

Chiropractic is so much more than simply a means of relieving pain. Ultimately, the goal of the chiropractic treatment is to restore the body to its natural state of optimal health. Since the body has a remarkable ability to heal itself and to maintain its own health, the primary focus is simply to remove those things which interfere with the body's normal healing ability.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Jill is the best chiropractor I have seen. She takes care of my aches and pains. She uses a form of adjusting that is never that twisting and aggressive kind of adjustment. I am a patient that tenses up with manual adjustments and I like the Dr. Jill offers another option for me. It is easy to get an appointment with Dr. Jill; she always makes time for me. The office staff is friendly and efficient. I was told by my father to always go to a chiropractor that takes x-rays, and Dr. Jill offers x-rays at her office and explained and showed the x-rays to me so I could understand what was going on with my body. I highly recommend Dr. Jill"

  • "I came in with a very stiff neck and after receiving treatment from Dr. Jill I am feeling much better and I have much more motion in my neck. Dr. Jill and the staff are very nice & friendly."

  • "After 2 years of hip, low back, groin & leg pain, my medical doctor suggested an MRI to be followed by back surgery. I was very reluctant. I saw an advertisement in the Times News about Dr. Jill Adepoju, and being a believer of Chiropractic Care, I made an appointment. After only a few treatments, I have minimal discomfort and great improvement in all areas, plus my sleepless nights have ended. Exercises are required & must faithfully be performed for optimal results. I'm still working with Dr. Jill and I am looking forward to being pain free & a new motivated person again. Thank you Dr. Jill & thank you to your great staff, it has been a pleasure to be in your care."
    Sincerely, Sharon A.
