Let's Bring Health Back To Basics
About Back to Basics
The word ‘chiropractic’ comes from the Greek words cheir (meaning ‘hand’) and praktos (meaning ‘done’), i.e. Done by Hand.
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system,
and the effects of these disorders on general health.
Hi, I'm Dr. Jillian Skluzacek
The realization of the body as an asset has motivated a vast change in my personal life and my goal is to empower others to change their mindset and take control of their health. I understand that everyone has a different path to wellness and enjoy supporting my patients to find theirs! I believe in bringing health back to the basics and providing our bodies with the physical, chemical and emotional support to optimize healing.
One of the most common and well-known therapeutic procedures performed by doctors of chiropractic is spinal manipulation (sometimes referred to as a "chiropractic adjustment"). The purpose of spinal manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for an individual. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal.
