Chiropractors are often thought of as back doctors and have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches. However, since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.
We are not like other chiropractic offices because we have a HUGE variety of treatment options in addition to chiropractic techniques. Please see our “What We Do” page for more information on specific services.
Many people come to see us because they have had little or no response to medical treatment or other chiropractic treatments. Here are some common conditions we see in our clinic:
Headaches Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Back and neck pain Fibromyalgia
Auto injuries/whiplash Hormone Imbalances
Sports Injuries Digestive issues
The goal of our clinic is to help our patients become empowered with their health, achieving their optimal wellness goals. If you are suffering needlessly from pain, have a condition that has not responded well to medical care or other treatment, or are trying to achieve optimal wellness in your life, chiropractic can help you on the road back to better health. The ability to prevent disease through optimum function is why many people also receive periodic chiropractic care without having any symptoms or when their treatment is complete. This is known as “wellness” care.
Deaf Man Receives Hearing After Chiropractic Adjustment!
In 1895 Harvey Lillard, who had been deaf for 17 years, received the first chiropractic adjustment from Dr. D.D. Palmer. Three days later his hearing returned. How was this possible? The brain communicates with and coordinates the function of every system, organ, tissue, and cell in the body. When structural problems cause communication breakdowns between the brain and the rest of the body, proper function becomes impaired, and dis-ease results. The most common place for this to occur is in the spinal column. This is what Dr. Palmer corrected in Harvey. Chiropractors are masters trained at removing these structural imbalances releasing the full healing potential of the body through the nervous system.
What is Chiropractic and How Does it Work?
Chiropractic is based on the scientific law that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. The nervous system controls and coordinates this function in the body as well as the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is somewhat less protected by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal position or become misaligned, they can choke off or irritate the spinal cord and surrounding nerves. This disrupts the function of the tissues or organs controlled by these nerves leading to dis-ease. Chiropractic physicians locate these areas of spinal malfunction and remove interferences that may be disrupting a state of optimum health.
Chiropractic works by restoring the body’s ability to heal itself. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all of the cells, tissues, and organs of the body are made to resist illness and disease. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and remove interferences to your natural state of health.
