Wellness Chiropractic Care

“Many of us take better care of our automobiles than we do our own bodies… yet the auto has replaceable parts.” -BJ Palmer

Chiropractic is a Lifestyle

While chiropractic can be an excellent solution for pain, it is health care that can provide significantly more. For some, pain relief is all they want and that’s fine with us. For those who want more than just pain relief, our brand of chiropractic helps people create a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness including nutrition, exercise, personal development, stress relief, and a new zest for life. We work with people of all ages including newborns, children, adolescents, adults and the elderly to help them achieve true health care that allows them to be the best they can be and enjoy the activities they love.

The Discovery & Removal of Vertebral Subluxation

What do we actually do when we adjust your spine? Along with our diagnostic evaluation, we palpate (feel along the spine) looking for areas that may present abnormalities in tightness and mobility and pain or tenderness. The misalignment of a vertebra is called a vertebral subluxation. This misalignment interferes with the nervous system’s ability to function at full potential thereby causing pain, discomfort and/or many other symptoms people often do not associate with it. Once cleared, the pain and symptoms dissipate restoring the nervous system function back to normal. Regular maintenance care (1 – 2 times/month) helps ensure it stays that way.

Where Does a Spinal Misalignment Come From?

Our bodies are subjected to many physical, emotional and chemical stressors over our lifetime even starting with the birth process. Whether a natural delivery or a C-section, the stress placed on the baby’s exit from the birth canal can cause a misalignment to occur. Medical intervention can also contribute. So then can falls, sports, amusement park rides, auto accidents, work, prolonged sitting and so many life activities. These all cause a disruption in spinal alignment of individual and multiple vertebrae including scoliosis (abnormal curve when looking at body from front to back) and loss of normal spinal curves when looking at the body from the side.
Chemical stressors come from a poor diet of eating packaged foods, sugar, soda, diet drinks and snacks, alcohol, artificial additives, colors and preservatives, genetically modified foods all without much nutrition to fuel the body. They also come from chemicals in our environment.

Anything from the medications one takes to the water one drinks, cigarettes they smoke, products they use (especially on their bodies) and air they breathe all can have an impact on our nervous system.

Emotional and mental stress can also cause spinal misalignment as tension in muscles can exert abnormal pressure on vertebrae. These negative stressors send signals that can cause dysfunction in the spine and other areas of you body.
