Chiropractic Care for Fast Pain Relief Without Medications
The first chiropractor to provide a chiropractic adjustment was delivered on September 18, 1895. Since that day the body of science has been growing and growing to support Chiropractic care as a safe and effective treatment for pain relief. That is over 120 years of proven effectiveness that can’t be argued with.
Chiropractic care is an alternative treatment to medication and invasive surgery to heal issues relating to the spine being out of alignment. By helping the body through making adjustments, this process allows the spine to return its original, natural alignment. Many common ailments can be relieved since the misalignment was the initial cause of a lot of the patient’s issues to begin with.

What are Chiropractor Adjustments?
A “chiropractic adjustment” provides spinal manipulation and alignment, getting rid of your pain by allowing your nervous system to work properly. Adjustments don’t hurt you nor are they in any way harmful. They actually feel good to most people and very quickly provide relief from symptoms. Dr. Cosmas Leigh has been adjusting patients since 1995 and has become known as having a “soft touch” while delivering specific and helpful adjustments to your spine.
Spinal Manipulation & Alignments in Durham and Chapel Hill
Spinal alignment is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, joint pain, and headaches. If you suffer from pain it is because the nerves in your body are not able to communicate as they should. Pain is a symptom of the underlying blockage of the nerve. The purpose of spinal alignment is to restore joint function within the spine allowing the nervous system to communicate properly throughout the body. Proper communication allows for freedom from pain and discomfort. Spinal alignment of the affected joint improves the feeling of the surrounding muscles, restores mobility thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing your body to heal.
