Originated in the United States, chiropractic medicine has been around since the late 1800s. Chiropractic is a hands-on therapy based on the theory that when one or more of the bones of your spine move out of position, they can create pressure on or irritate spinal nerves (subluxation). Treatments usually involve adjusting the joints and bones in a person's spine by using pulling, twisting or pushing movements, as well as heat, electrical stimulation or ultrasound to help relax a person's muscles before the spinal adjustment.
Research has shown that chiropractic is effective in treating neck pain, headaches and lower back pain, as well as non-spinal conditions like asthma and high blood pressure.
Additionally, Dr. Polzin specializes in athletic training and has previously provided chiropractic services to the CSU athletic program's varsity altheltics teams, as well as athletic training services for the Denver Nuggets, the NCAA Men's Division 1 Basketball Tournament, the NCAA National Indoor Track Tournament, and several Olympians, including a 9-time gold medalist.
