Dr. Robert Portillo treats patients with health problems of the musculoskeletal system, which is made up of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Through spinal manipulation and other techniques he treat patients’ ailments, such as back or neck pain.
Spinal manipulation, which chiropractors call an”adjustment”, is the most common treatment used in chiropractic care. Spinal manipulation is a mild “hands-on” maneuver of a joint. The goal is to increase movement of the area and decrease the stress and misalignment caused by imbalances of the muscles, tendons and ligaments. When an adjustment is performed to the spine it directley affects the nervous system improving the bodies function and coping ability.
Chiropractic is a health care discipline, which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
