What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an alternative healing art that is based on the philosophy that within each person is the ability to heal and express optimal health.  Chiropractic works to restore full capability to the nervous system, which controls every tissue, organ, and function within the body.  When the nervous system is fully-functional, many symptoms that patients experience are often alleviated.  Joints stop hurting, breathing becomes easier, energy skyrockets, and sleep is improved dramatically. Over time, the body is able to rebuild itself into a better functioning and better structured machine.  This is accomplished by improving the health of your nervous system.

What is a subluxation?  

A subluxation is simply a misalignment of a joint that interferes with the normal activity of the nervous system.  Any bone that is not properly aligned interferes with the normal functioning of your nerves and results in lower levels of health.  99 times out of 100, we cannot feel subluxations, so they are commonly ignored.  Over the course of weeks/months/years/decades, the problematic areas and nerves can deteriorate and begin to cause problems that most people call symptoms.  This is your body telling you that there is an emergency.

What is an adjustment?  

The adjustment is used to correct a subluxation and relieve nerve pressure.  This is done by gently pushing the misaligned bone back into position.  Once the bone in question is properly aligned, nerve flow is improved and the body works better.  Chiropractors are the only doctors thoroughly trained to deliver a spinal adjustment.

Does the adjustment hurt? 

Done properly, an adjustment should never be painful.  Our doctors have and will continue to travel around the world to seminars that further train chiropractors in the most gentle, effective, and precise techniques available.

How old should you be before you go to the chiropractor? 

Being born is hard work!  Often times, the baby has to turn, roll, tuck, and squeeze before he or she leaves the birth canal.  Forceps and suctioning devices are commonly used to pull the newborn out by the head.  Many times, our first subluxation occurs as we are being born.  As we go through life bending, twisting, playing sports, living with stress, studying, sitting at a desk, commuting, etc. the probability of having spinal misalignments is almost 100%  We treat patients ranging from 1 week to 99 years old!  

If I go once, do I have to go forever?  

You don’t have to do anything forever!  Maintenance care with chiropractic involves routine checkups to ensure that your nervous system is functioning at its optimal potential.  It’s no different than going to the dentist for routine check-ups or working out at the gym multiple times per week for your muscles. Visit frequency will depend on your age, type of work you do, your activity level, and the overall condition of your spine.

Are regular chiropractic adjustments good for overall health?

Have you ever wondereded if there is some secret you are not aware of that could put you on another level in your life?  Something that increases energy levels, sharpens focus, improves your mood, and supercharges your immune system?  Staying regularly adjusted simply lets your body do everything at a higher level than you ever thought possible.  It is the difference between driving a honda versus a ferrari.  

How much do you use your spine on a daily basis?  The more neglect we give our spine, the more it breaks down.  The old saying goes: "ignore your health and it will go away"   The future of healthcare is in the prevention of disease, not in the treatment of an already sick and weak body. If you want to stay well and enjoy your life fully until your last breath, take care of your spine and nerves!
