Chiropractor Jacksonville FL
Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what it's all about. We are here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our Jacksonville chiropractors help you and your family.
Chiropractors are extensively trained to diagnose and treat problems with your musculoskeletal and nervous systems, with special expertise in back, neck, and joint pain. The chiropractic team at Advanced Medical Centers takes a whole-person approach that includes hands-on chiropractic modalities, rehabilitation, nutrition and lifestyle counseling, and weight-loss management.
Chiropractors are known for their expertise in the spine, which provides structural support and flexible movement, while also protecting the millions of nerves traveling through the spinal cord. However, taking care of your spine also improves your overall health.
When spinal vertebrae are misaligned, they compress nerves and blood vessels. While pinched nerves cause pain in your back and neck, they also lead to problems in the body areas served by the damaged nerves. As chiropractic care decompresses nerves and improves blood flow, your body can naturally heal your spine and the affected areas throughout your body.
Chiropractic May Be The Answer
Chiropractic care effectively treats the underlying cause of many acute and chronic pain conditions, so these are only a few examples:
- Knee pain

No matter what underlying condition causes your pain and stiffness, chiropractic treatments lead to whole-body benefits such as reduced pain, improved mobility and flexibility, stronger muscles, and a boost in energy.
