More often than not, when I tell someone that I am a chiropractor, they immediately associate my vocation with neck and/or back pain. They usually say, "I used to go to a chiropractor when I threw my back out," but what they do not realize is that chiropractic is a health care modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain. Chiropractic is a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness including exercise, nutrition, personal development, stress relief, etc. We have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life (including newborns, children, and adolescents) and the outcome has been miraculous. Children who were diagnosed with colic or about to have tubes placed in their ears, were able to find a solution that actually lasted for a lifetime by means of the chiropractic adjustment.
Wellness Chiropractic is distinguished by the fact that it looks to further seek the cause of the problem beyond the symptom and even beyond the nerve disturbance. The easiest way to understand the uniqueness of Wellness Chiropractic is to draw a parallel to dentistry. Chiropractic adjustments are akin to regular checkups and the occasional necessary filling in your teeth. Wellness Chiropractic goes beyond that and includes strategies like brushing and flossing to prevent future cavities. We focus on the lifestyle issues that are causing the undesirable outcomes. Whether it be limited range of motion, pain, weight, medication dependency or quality of sleep, we help find ways to modify lifestyle to produce a different outcome.
We define chiropractic as the discovery and removal of the vertebral subluxation, which is interference that is taking place in your central nervous system (CNS). It is important to recognize that our CNS is the master controller of our entire body and it directly correlates to our ability to function and exist. People who are suffering from allergies, asthma, headaches, etc. are living in a subluxated state, but when we provide these individuals with an adjustment, we are able to remove the interference, and the condition dissipates. In addition, patients who are under regular chiropractic care (1-2x each month) actually prevent these situations from impeding upon their lives.
Maybe you are wondering where a "subluxation" comes from, and if this is the case, it is the direct result of everything that we do. Lifestyle stresses, both perceived as positive and negative, result in nerve interference, which needs to be addressed. For example, during the holiday season, many people tend to consume a substantial amount of food and alcohol and also spend more time with family (which some would consider stressful). What we have seen, is that after the holiday season, people typically get SICK, which happens to be caused by a subluxation. The food, alcohol, and family represent lifestyle stresses, even if they are labeled as positive, because our body is extremely sensitive to external factors. This is why chiropractic care needs to be an essential component of your life and something that we encourage your entire family to consider.
When visiting our practice, we take the chiropractic lifestyle to a level where it becomes REAL for you. Not only do we offer the adjustment, but we combine these programs with tips on fitness, nutrition, and stress relief. We take into account your entire body and the lifestyle choices that you make when developing customized protocols for you to follow once you become a patient in our office. With this being said, please contact our office today that we can schedule a health consultation with you!
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
