From Our Website
Harrisburg chiropractic patients aren't interested in being treated as "just another spine." The Harrisburg, Lemoyne, Camp Hill and New Cumberland area chiropractors who take the time to provide specific, personalized care for each patient can be found at Becker Chiropractic. As graduates of Palmer College of Chiropractic, both Dr. Tom Becker and Dr. Brian Becker believe that chiropractic care combined with healthy lifestyle choices results in less pain, greater function and a better quality of life.
Our approach is simple. We believe that health is amongst our most valuable possessions. And while we generally meet people after they've lost their health, our commitment is two-fold. We're committed to teaching our patients that true health is a journey, not a destination. Through educational opportunities (like this website), we hope to communicate the value of ongoing chiropractic care. Our desire is to see our practice members abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favor of the emerging wellness model.
If you've ever gone to a social event where you didn't know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home. Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it's important that our relationship can go the distance. We've found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you'll enjoy.
Specific chiropractic spinal adjustments, because they can help restore proper motion and position of individual spinal bones, can help promote proper healing. The longer you wait the more unseen damage there is and the longer it seems to take to recover. Because the nerves to the arms and hands exit the spine through the injured area of the neck, numbness and tingling are common. Even lower back pain can result directly from the trauma, or as a reaction to the loss of proper spinal curves. Whether you've been in an accident, stressed at work, or over-exerted yourself in the garden, your body is constantly adapting to the environment.
Repetitive motions (painting the ceiling), postural distortions (falling asleep with your neck twisted) and whiplash injuries from a car accident are physical stresses. So are slips and falls. Even being born! Today's environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, pollen and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system and muscle tone. When your body reacts by "tripping a circuit breaker" and causing subluxation, chiropractic care may help.
A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren't supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. But these subluxations affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head. Our thorough examination detects subluxation patterns that could be causing your headaches. If subluxations are present, you're likely to benefit from chiropractic care. Some are surprised to learn that their headaches are being caused by problems in their lower back!
Our primary goal as chiropractors is to decrease our patient's pain and discomfort while improving their ability to achieve their daily activities. Symptoms such as pain and loss of function are usually proceeded by subtle, yet important clues. Early recognition of these warning signs are vital to recovering within the shortest amount of time. Other factors such as proper nutrition, exercise, both work and sleep habits also play an important role in recovery. This is achieved through specific chiropractic adjustments of the involved vertebra and may, at times, be followed by therapies such as traction, heat and ice.
