Chiropractic Care

Everything you experience in life happens through your nervous system. From seeing a sunset, tasting your favorite meal, hearing your favorite song, etc., it all happens by sending messages from the body to areas of our brain and back again. These messages also tell our bodies how to respond to temperature change, sleep cycles, energy levels, different types stress, and other important changes that happen naturally. This constant communication between the brain and the body allows our body tissues to coordinate, adapt, and grow together. Chiropractors are doctors of the spine because the spine houses this all-important nervous system. When properly aligned, your spine protects your brain stem, spinal cord. The signals sent from the brain travel down the spinal cord and out to the nerves to be received. If these signals are tampered with, or worse, completely cut off, dysfunction occurs. Chiropractors inspect and analyze the spine for partial dislocations or misalignments that might interfere with the signals traveling throughout the nervous system.

What makes a plant grow? Everyone knows plants need water, sunlight, nutrients, carbon dioxide, etc. to thrive. Similarly, your body has basic needs that must be met in order to maintain health. If these needs are not met in the appropriate amount, then achieving true and sustainable health is impossible. It’s important that we don’t rush to the use of auxiliary or even emergency treatments when a solution may be much more fundamental. The brain controls and influences all of the systems of the body via the spinal cord and nerve connections. Even slight misalignments or partial dislocations can lead to nerve dysfunction and cause problems throughout the body.

Traditionally, a chiropractic adjustment might bring up images of popping and twisting the spine. While these techniques have been used for decades, and can still provide relief, our office offers a different approach. Using the latest instrument adjusting technology, our light-force yet powerful technique allows the use of sound wave to correct the position of the bone all without having to take the neck outside the normal range of motion. The Evolutionary Percussive Instrument Corrections (EPIC) method bridges the gap between traditional understanding and modern innovation. It involves taking measurements and gathering information about your unique anatomy for a custom-tailored approach. Obtaining a detailed analysis allows us to deliver a precise correction to the problem area, without having to move the other bones as a consequence.

In our office, we want you to hold the correction for as long as possible. Once the spine has stabilized, we find our patients maintaining their corrections for months and even years. The use of this sound-wave technology means there is a lower risk of adverse effects with our methods, and is even approved for those who have had surgery or severe health problems.
