Understanding Chiropractic Care

Though you are likely familiar with chiropractors, you may be unaware of what they do. You may want to know why visiting your Philadelphia chiropractor is a great idea, and how chiropractic help you.

Your Body is Like a Car

Perhaps the best way to explain chiropractic care is with the help of a car analogy. Owning a car requires consistent maintenance to ensure that it continues to run efficiently. In addition to occasional check-ups, in some cases you may have to take it in for repair work, for example when a part starts to malfunction or after a car accident.

Well, the same is true for your body. The best way to stay healthy is be proactive about your health, but sometimes you have an accident (like a fall or an auto accident) and you must visit a health practitioner to to jump-start your recovery your body back in good shape.

Of course, you can't replace your body when it's broken. With your body, there's no going out to get a fresh one or exchange it when the damage is too costly. So, keeping your body in top shape must be a priority if you are going to expect it to look terrific and run smoothly well into old age.

How Your Philadelphia Chiropractor Can Ensure Your "Car" is in Top Condition

Because your chiropractor is concerned with spinal health, getting regular chiropractic care will enable you to accomplish and keep optimal health. It will lessen your chance of suffering from back and neck pain while improving your quality of life. Chiropractic also keeps your body running as efficiently as possible.


The spinal column protects your spinal cord which forms a connection between your brain and all of your organs, muscles, and tissues via the spinal nerves that branch out into every part of the body. So, if the spine is out of place at all, your entire body is affected. Because a spinal misalignment disrupts the central nervous system, other systems — like your digestive, respiratory, or reproductive systems — may not work as smoothly either.

So make visits with a chiropractor a priority. Call (215) 743-5330 to schedule a visit with Dr. Calantoni today. You'll be taken care of – regardless of whether you’re just looking for maintenance or need repair service!
