Chiropractic 101

What is Chiropractic? Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct  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 recuperate on its own.

What is subluxation? Vertebral subluxation is when one or more of the bones in your spine moves out of its normal position and irritates spinal nerves.  Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine.  This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling through those nerves.  The doctor of chiropractic is able to locate and reduce or correct the subluxation.

What is health?  Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.-World Health Organization 1948
Chiropractic care has been proven to improve overall health and well being.

What is adaptation?  An adaptation is a physical or behavioral characteristic that has developed to allow an organism to better survive in its enviornment.  Chiropractic can help all human beings to adapt to daily physical, chemical and emotional stressors that affect our quality of life on a daily basis.

Prenatal Care
Chiropractic care in pregnancy is an essential ingredient to your pre-natal care choices. A large percent of all pregnant women experience back discomfort/ pain during pregnancy. This is due to the rapid growth of the baby and an interference to your body's normal structural adaptations to that growth.
Pre-existing unnoticed imbalances in your spine and pelvis become overtaxed during these times. The added stresses lead to discomfort and difficulty while performing routine, daily activities.
Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy. Specific adjustments eliminate these stresses in your spine, restore balance to your pelvis and result in greater comfort and lifestyle improvements.
Chiropractic Care for Children
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even so called “natural” birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress.
Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked right away. As the infant grows, learning to hold up the head, sit, crawl and walk are all activities that affect spinal alignment and are important times to have a child checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic.
Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
