Chiropractic Scientifically Explained

A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.

Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly affected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).

This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is in space), through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body), in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).

Chiropractic Care and Your Health

Chiropractic is a profession within the health care field that deals with the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the human body. A chiropractor will diagnose, as well as help prevent, injuries and disorders of the nerves, muscles, and bones.

While we will diagnose and treat these resultant injuries and disorders, the main objective is the removal of nerve interference allowing the body to heal itself without invasive procedures and/or drugs.

As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at Cramer Chiropractic & Rehab receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patients’ condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created.

"Dr. Cramer is the best! I highly recommend him to anyone who has any ailments. He's always accommodating and I never have to wait. He's helped tremendously with my neck/back pain. I couldn't have made a better decision when I opted to try this practice!"

- Cindy Whalen

"Dr. Cramer is one of the most wonderful persons that I have met, very easy to talk, friendly and the most important part is that he actually cares. This is my third accident and the first two doctor that I saw before were not as knowledgeable and professional as him. He really listens and cares. Today, I feel great thanks to him."

- Amy Smith

"Dear Dr. Cramer,

As you are aware, I have been suffering from extreme neck and shoulder pain for the past several months. as the discomfort became unbearable recently, I, on the advice of a dear friend, visited your office several weeks ago. My medical doctor, in an effort to determine the cause of my pain, had referred me to several specialists, and had undergone numerous procedures, including a CT scan.

I have to admit I was very skeptical about my visit. Although, as you probably recall, I was virtually unable to hold my head erect, the specialists and the tests had revealed nothing out of the ordinary. I was beginning to feel hopeless and depressed. I’ve read many stories about people who are eventually referred to psychiatrists because the pain “is all in their head”.

Upon my very first visit, you performed a thorough exam and upon receiving my first adjustment, I promptly burst into tears, not because it hurt, but because there was such a sense of relief rushing through my body I became overwhelmed temporarily. From that day to this, I have increasingly felt better and better with each visit. My attitude has improved ten-fold, physically I am feeling more like my old self again, only better!

It is not often that I am so inspired to write a letter of praise, but I wanted to take a moment to relate to you how very grateful I am, not only your professionalism and expertise, but your gentle kindness and caring mannerisms. You are a wonderful Doctor of Chiropractic, and you’ve made a believer out of me.

God Bless You,"

- Cynthia J.

"Dear Dr. Cramer,

Merry Christmas! Greg and I didn’t want to let the holidays pass without thanking you for the wonderful care you and your office have given us. When we think back on the past year we realize how much has changed for us. And even though both Greg and I have experienced painful periods, we realize we can see how greatly blessed we are.

What a blessing it turned out to be that Greg chose your office for chiropractic care! God Himself must’ve guided his hand. It’s difficult to explain how dramatically you’ve changed our lives. You relieved Greg’s neck pain within weeks, then undoubtedly saved his life be referring us to an Ear, Nose, & Throat specialist (instead of a sleep clinic, as others had suggested) for his snoring problem.

Then bit by bit, one adjustment at a time, your optimism and positive energy propelled me (almost in spite of myself) to a fuller life. Now, mostly pain-free AND exercising again (hooray!), I feel like a new person. Even though I know I’ll have a long period of reconditioning ahead of me, now I feel that I can manage my health and proactively maintain it (with your help). Every suggestion you have made has proven helpful — everything from daily stretching to the Atkins diet!

For all of this we are profoundly grateful. Thank you for your patience and encouragement, for your humor and your strength. May God bless you, your family, and all those He has entrusted to your care.


- Tracy & Greg P.
