Chiropractic is focused on the relationship between the structure of your spine affects the function the nervous system and how this relationship affects your health.
Misalignments of your spine and poor health
No part of your body can function without the control of the nervous system. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments, called subluxations create disturbance to the signals traveling through the nervous system causing poor health and function, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally.
Natural health care without drugs or surgery
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment—the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment—corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to heal itself.
Chiropractic care should be part of everyone’s healthcare program. Chiropractic helps the musculoskeletal system work better so you perform your everyday activities now and helps prevent arthritis from a poorly moving spine. It also improves the function of your brain, spinal cord, and nervous system. Your brain and nervous system controls all of your organs, all of your muscles, and even how your body perceives sensory information. Think of the nervous system like the electrical wiring in your home. If you have bad wiring that’s not good.
While most offices only use one technique, we offer multiple chiropractic techniques to get you well. We use different techniques to analyze the different system of the spine. We assess the spine using the bones by checking posture, alignment, and vertebral motion, we assess the spine using the muscles by using muscle testing (Applied Kinesiology), and we assess the nervous system by using the Insight Subluxation Station and by assessing the tone of the nervous system using tonal chiropractic techniques.
By sorting through multiple layers of your physiology it helps us to get to the source of your problem and helps us to treat you more effectively and efficiently. In addition to traditional manual chiropractic techniques, we also are experts in the use of the Arthrostim technology. This technology allows us to provide adjustments without any twisting or cracking of the spine.
