Chiropractic Care in Jacksonville

Doctors of Chiropractic (often referred to as chiropractors, or chiropractic physicians) practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnostic imaging, diagnosis and treatment.

  • Chiropractic is the health care profession that focuses on pain relief from disorders of the muscles, skeleton, and nervous system of your body, and caring for the effects of these disorders on your general health.
  • Chiropractic care can help disorders like back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, fibromyalgia, sciatica, and headaches, even if they are the result of an accident or a sports injury.

Chiropractors have a number of different techniques to locate the root cause and release tension or pressure in the affected area.

Cox Flexion Distraction Technique tableFor example, Dr. Hunziker may apply the Cox Flexion Distraction Technique (also known as the Cox Technic) a non-surgical spinal manipulation adjustment technique, which uses a table to restore movement to the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spinal joints.

This technique helps to stop pain immediately by realigning the spine, while restoring range of motion in the joints and muscles; increasing flexibility and improving your posture.

  • Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
  • Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.
