What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic Care in Northfield, Illinois

We have many patients in our office who see Dr. Robert Richart for chiropractic care. While many people think that chiropractic is just a great way to treat back pain, it's much more than that.

Chiropractic Northfield, IllinoisThe philosophy behind chiropractic is simple: your central nervous system controls every aspect of your body's functioning. It controls your cardiovascular, endocrine, digestive, respiratory, muscular, and immune systems. When your nervous system is functioning properly, you experience health; when there's a disruption in the functioning of your nervous system, you experience illness or pain or dysfunction.

The normal, healthy functioning of your nervous system can be disrupted by "subluxations" in your spinal column. Dr. Robert Richart works to find these subluxations and adjusts your spine to reduce or correct them, helping your body restore its natural function without drugs, surgery, or invasive procedures.
