Treating the Cause Rather Than Chasing the Symptoms

Our Services

At Brittain Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic and acupuncture care to each and every patient. We have included information below about our services offered in our Emporia, Kansas office.

Chiropractic: Adjusting Your Health

Our human spinal column is a combination of 24 separate vertebrae which give you the ability to stand up straight, move around, bend in all directions, stretch, and much more. These vertebrae are put to the test and stressed to the max during our daily routines. Proper spinal health is key to successful recovery and relief from painful injuries or disorders.

Removing subluxations - the process of realigning the spine - is a key focus in our practice. A subluxation is basically a dislocation or misalignment of the spine, which can cause intense pain, inflammation, and in serious cases even cause damage to the nervous system.

Visiting a chiropractor is not only beneficial to your spine but it has been known to treat chronic headaches; joint pain in the arms, wrists, and shoulders; neck pain; back pain; numbness; sciatica; sports injuries; repetitive motion injuries; and arthritis. It is also extremely useful against stress and muscle tension.

Our licensed chiropractors will help you become that person you once were before you were injured. It is our goal to ensure ongoing wellness from each and every patient we treat. We do both preventative care as well as realignments to relieve and nurture ongoing injuries and return you to your proper functioning form.

Acupuncture: Balancing Energy

Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of Traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

Using methods traditional to Chinese medicine, as well as a combination of herbal remedies, we will be able to help promote your body to balance itself using its own natural reactions.
