CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system. They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery.

 

An estimated 50 million Americans see a chiropractor each year.

THE CHIROPRACTIC PREMISE 

  1. Your nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) controls and coordinates everything in your body and mind.

  2. When your nerve energy flows abundantly without obstruction, your body and mind are 100% self-communicating, self-healing, self-regulating and robust.

  3. When subluxations (nerve interference or damage) impede nerve flow, similar to static on your cell phone, you are no longer functioning at 100% and your health and vitality are compromised.

  4. Subluxations are caused by our inability to handle life’s three major stressors; physical, mental-emotional and chemical.

  5. Left uncorrected, subluxations have devastating effects upon human health and well-being, leading to breakdown, malfunction and dis-ease.Our goal is to locate subluxations, remove them and their causes and allow you to heal yourself on every level.

  6.  
  7. Only chiropractors can determine if you have subluxations. WHO DO YOU KNOW THAT NEEDS TO BE CHECKED?

 

WHEN YOU HAVE SUBLUXATIONS:

  1. Subluxations and Lifestyle (may relate to chief concern and other health issues)

  2. Left uncorrected subluxations and health may degenerate and worsen

  3. If we correct the subluxations and show you ways to quit recreating problems in the future you may:
    a. Feel better
    b. Prevent problems in the future
    c. Reverse effects of the aging processd. Have a better quality of life

  4. Subluxations are a health problem not a back problem!

Each year more than 15 million North Americans choose chiropractic for safe, natural and effective relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, extremity pain, poor overall health, low energy levels and much more.

 

Chiropractic treatments are primarily applied to the spinal region, many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only back and neck ailments. While we do quickly and effectively eliminate back and neck pain, it's not the only goal. The objective is to restore and optimize human health. In fact, according to a statement from The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "The purpose of chiropractic is to optimize health."

 

Practically speaking, chiropractors are primarily concerned with locating and treating vertebral subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular (joint) changes that compromise neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health. 

 

Using a number of unique and highly refined skills, the chiropractor checks the patient's spine for any misalignments, fixations or other abnormalities (vertebral subluxations). If subluxations or other abnormalities are detected, the chiropractor will generally apply a gentle force in a corrective manner to the affected spinal area.

 

Chiropractors use many specialized techniques to identify and treat these spinal abnormalities and optimize overall health. In addition to spinal adjustive techniques, soft tissue techniques such as massage, dietary and nutritional counseling, physical therapies, and lifestyle modification programs are commonly employed.

 

Short-term and regular chiropractic care have a number of benefits including:

  • spinal and extremity pain relief

  • headache relief

  • increased mobility and range of motion

  • decreased stiffness and muscular spasms

  • arthritic joint pain relief

  • increased joint health

  • increased performance and energy

  • increased sense of well-being and relaxation

  • increased balance and coordination

  • reduced degeneration and risk of injury

  • enhanced tissue healing

  • decreased tissue inflammation

 

In our clinic our focus on holistic, full-body health help to ensure that we treat the entirety of your condition, rather than just one piece of the puzzle!

Chiropractic doctors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body’s ability to self-heal. Sounds ideal, but just how does it work? 

We look at the whole picture

Like other health-care providers, we follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient. We consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and we may request laboratory analyses and/or x-rays. Unlike other health-care providers, however, chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient’s structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We also ask you about your life- Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work? And so on.

It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of illness in order to eliminate it, instead of simply treating the symptoms.

We seek the origin of the problem

Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms. If your roof is leaking, do you simply catch the drips in a bucket for years on end, or do you repair the roof to prevent it from leaking? Similarly, if the migraine headache you’ve had all week is being caused by misaligned vertebra and an irritated nerve, do you continue to take pain killers indefinitely, or do you realign the vertebra to prevent the pain? You get the picture.

We fix the origin of the problem

Chiropractors have a term for misalignments: subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. It’s a leak in the roof. Or a kink in the wiring of your nervous system. The severity of the subluxation can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors that can be physical, emotional, mental, or chemical. The subluxation can be caused by any number of incidents, from birth trauma to an auto accident to simple repetition or over-use.
