What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and the effects of these disorders on health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Doctors of Chiropractic - often referred to as chiropractors - practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

How Can a Chiropractor Help You?

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as "spinal manipulation," or "chiropractic adjustment." The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses such as sitting with poor posture for an extended period of time. Manipulation or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allows tissues to heal.

Dr. Samuel Cornell

Doctor of Chiropractic, Certified Athletic Trainer

Dr. Cornell was born and raised in Southern California. Since he was young, he has always been involved in sports and competing. During these early years, he became interested in learning not only what to do to recover from an injury but also ways to decrease the chances of an injury in the first place. This curiosity led to him pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Athletic Training from Grand Canyon University. While working on his degree he had the opportunity to spend time working with various athletes including high school students , community college athletes, NCAA Division 1 programs and a rotation working with a professional baseball team for spring training. It was during this time that he also began working as a Chiropractic Assistant for two Chiropractors who took the principles of rehabilitation and incorporated chiropractic adjustments and manual therapy techniques to help their patients. Dr. Cornell realized the benefit of this all encompassing approach and decided to pursue a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences. Upon graduation, he began working in a multi-disciplinary clinic and saw how multiple providers of different expertises working together created the opportunity to offer a treatment approach that was best tailored to fit a patient’s needs.

Dr. Cornell moved to Colorado in November of 2022 and is looking forward to exploring the open spaces, the mountains and learning about the history that is preserved all over the state.
