What Can Chiropractic Do For Me?
Our goal in this office is to turn your health around by relieving you of a serious form of spine and nerve damage called the vertebral subluxation complex [also called a subluxation]. Subluxations affect your nerves, muscles, ligaments, discs, joints, bones, and internal organs, including your brain. The effects can be immediate or they may take time – it depends on many factors – age, diet, lifestyle and regularity of care.

What If My Spine Is Unhealthy?
An unhealthy spine is characterized by bad posture, tight and tense muscles, pinched nerves, and bone and disc degeneration, lowered resistance to disease, fatigue and overall body malfunction. This state is also called dis-ease, meaning “general lowered health.” When a person has dis-ease, they can fall prey to all kinds of diseases and health conditions. To make things more complicated, subluxations may be painless; you may have many in your spine for years before you begin to feel their destructive effects.

A Unique Approach
What makes chiropractic unique is its vitalist approach to health. By that we mean that we don’t want you to wait for a condition or problem to arise before you address your health. We want you to correct subtle body malfunction [dis-ease] caused by subluxations now, while you still feel relatively good and have the energy to self-heal. If you wait until your body has massive subluxation degeneration [spinal degeneration] it may be too late for complete recovery.

What can I Expect?
Chiropractic care is dived into two parts – spinal analysis and spinal adjustment [or corrections].
First we will analyze your spine using various tools – our hands, X-ray, heat-reading devices, muscle testing and/or other tools to determine where there is a subluxation in your spine. When we have located the precise area of your subluxation, we will then do a procedure to correct or eliminate the subluxation. This is the second part of your care and it is called chiropractic spinal adjustment. It is a gentle realignment of your spinal column, a rebalancing of your body and release of deep stress.

Chiropractors spend many years and thousands of hours learning and perfecting various spinal adjusting procedures and we’d be happy to answer your questions about how we do what we do.

1] Initial Intensive Care Phase

In this phase your spine is out of balance and not holding its adjustment. Please cooperate by keeping your appointments and modifying your lifestyle in ways that will help get you out of the intensive care phase quickly.

2] Corrective or Spinal Healing Phase
Your spine is beginning to stabilize and hold its adjustments for longer periods. In this phase our objective is to monitor your spine as it strengthens. Many of your symptoms and complaints may have disappeared or decreased in this phase. It is critical, however, that you continue your visits even if you are feeling better.

3] Health Optimization/Wellness Phase
In this phase your spine is now holding its adjustment and has become reasonably stable. It is handling stress well. Regular care not only keeps you subluxation-free, but studies reveal that the more you visit your chiropractor, the greater your physical and emotional health and the less stress and more enjoyment you get out of life.
