Why Chiropractic Care Is Important?

For Buffalo residents, chiropractic health care benefits all aspects of the body’s ability to be healthy. This is accomplished by working with the nervous system–the communication system between your brain and body. It addresses the underlying cause of your injuries and illnesses. Other treatment options simply address issues on the surface. The root cause is still present, which would cause your symptoms to return in the future. When misaligned, these structures create an imbalance in surrounding muscles and ligaments. Additionally, the resulting nervous system stress may affect the body’s ability to function optimally. Dr. Kathleen Henneberger will work with you individually, developing a treatment and lifestyle wellness plan that will not only help you get better but stay better.

If you are frustrated with the traditional health care options in Buffalo and want to help avoid complications, potentially avoid surgery, avoid pain medication and it’s side effects, then chiropractic and holistic care options should be considered to help alleviate your aches, and pain.


Research has shown spinal adjustments and musculoskeletal adjustments to be the most effective treatment in chiropractic patients for numerous conditions including: sciatica, back pain, vertigo, migraine headaches, carpal tunnel, TMJ , insomnia, numbness / tingling, athletic injuries, fibromyalgia and neck pain. This is because spinal adjustments correct many of the structural, biomechanical and neurological abnormalities of the spine, which cause or contribute to a high number of back, neck and other non-spinal ailments.

Chiropractic care is not only effective, but remarkably safe. A New Zealand government study, found the treatment given by a doctor of chiropractic is safe and more efficient than other surgery and drugs. The Chiropractic adjustments are 100 times safer than over the counter drugs or medications for the same types of pain. Buffalo Family Chiropractic Wellness P.C.’s focus is to reduce your pain and level of inflamation and to restore you to the way you felt before dealing with constant pain. We want to get you back to your daily activities and enjoying life pain free, with full range of motion again!
