What is Chiropractic?


Taking A Natural Systemic Approach To Healing

Chiropractic care focuses on the holistic treatment of your musculoskeletal and nervous systems. It focuses on harmonizing your body, helping you utilize your body's natural healing mechanisms. Chiropractors also provide nutrition and lifestyle advice, including rehabilitative and therapeutic exercises. Dr. John Mettham of Mountainside Wellness Center, located in Phoenix, AZ, offers a variety of services dedicated to improving your overall health.

Dr. Mettham begins by first locating the cause of your pain as well as assessing the severity of it. Based on this information, Dr. Mettham will treat the symptoms with a treatment plan unique to your problem. The most common symptoms Dr. Mettham sees at Mountainside Wellness Center are neck pain, headaches, auto accident injuries, work-related injuries, lower back pain, and sports-related injuries. Your experienced Phoenix chiropractor is especially skilled in helping you heal or manage conditions such as spinal stenosis, scoliosis, herniated discs, and degenerative disc disease. 

You must be wondering: “But how does he treat these conditions?” or perhaps “How is this different from any other medical professional?” The biggest difference between chiropractors and your primary health physician is that chiropractors focus on finding a solution to what ails you, rather than just treating your symptoms with medication like your primary health physician would do. Dr. Mettham uses hands-on, advanced chiropractic techniques to resolve your issues. 

A common chiropractic technique that Dr. Mettham uses is: spinal manipulation, also known as a chiropractic adjustment. Spinal manipulation is especially beneficial for patients who are suffering from lower back pain. Dr. Mettham manually applies controlled force to your restricted joints. This restores much-needed mobility, along with alleviating pain and muscle tightness. What this accomplishes is allowing your injured tissue to begin to heal.

Are you suffering from back pain and think you could benefit from gentle chiropractic adjustments? We guarantee that you are in safe hands with Dr. Mettham. Contact Mountainside Wellness Center in Phoenix, AZ, today to set up an appointment.
