Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the belief that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system. It is a science, art and philosophy that concerns itself with the relationship between the nervous system and function (health) of the body. It is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body.
Dr. Picone uses a variety of chiropractic techniques he has learned over the years. These include: Sacral Occipital Therapy (SOT), Activator, Cox technique, and other manual types of manipulation. He has found that not one technique will work for all problems so our treatment programs are tailored for each individual’s needs. The chiropractic approach to better health works to detect, reduce and prevent nervous system dysfunction (subluxation). Chiropractic is much more than a means for symptomatic relief. By addressing the root causes of dysfunction and disease in the body, it enables the body to heal itself the way it was designed to.
