Chiropractic care focuses on properly aligning the body’s structures, to allow for natural healing. This is based on the concept that the nervous system coordinates all of the body's functions, and that disease results from a lack of normal nerve function. Chiropractic is not limited to the spine. As a Board Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Dr. Trumpi is trained to adjust every joint in your body, from your ankles to your shoulders, all bones may become misaligned, causing pain and dysfunction. Every joint can be adjusted for proper alignment, relieving pain by removing nerve compression in the area.
What Problems can a Chiropractor Address?
In addition to preventative and wellness care, chiropractic can be used to treat headaches, lower back pain, neck and shoulder pain, numbness, leg pain, scoliosis, and other health issues. Dr. Trumpi uses a variety of chiropractic techniques to address many issues. In addition to her Doctorate in Chiropractic, she is also a Board Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician. This certification allows her the knowledge and confidence to take care of any athlete, weekend warrior or sports enthusiast.

The nervous system controls all of the body’s functions, and depends on the vertebrae in your spine to protect it. When your vertebrae are out of line, they can prohibit optimal operation of the nervous system, which can lead to various physical problems. For example, the nerves that originate from the mid-back provide nerve impulses to the digestive system. If a person has developed bad posture from years of desk work, the mid-back may become chronically “slumped forward”. This posture will put pressure on the nerves, decreasing nerve flow to the organs that digest your food. This decreased nerve flow may not cause pain, but a person may feel other symptoms.
Research has shown that people who suffer from ulcers, digestive issues or irritable bowel syndrome may benefit from chiropractic adjustments. Removing pressure on the nerves that provide “energy “ to these areas will allow full nerve flow and function. This is only one of the examples on how chiropractic adjustments can improve your overall health.
Is Chiropractic Therapy Safe?
Chiropractic treatments are incredibly safe, actually, they’re one of the safest kinds of medical care available. Dr. Trumpi has studied extensively to fully understand the body’s systems. The chiropractic-training program is comparable to the program of study for medical doctors. According to the American Chiropractic Association, more than 30 million people visited doctors of chiropractic last year for a variety of conditions, and more and more medical doctors are referring their patients to doctors of chiropractic.
