What is Chiropractic?

Inside each of our spinal columns is our spinal cord. The spinal cord is a thick ‘power cable’ that is responsible for carrying trillions of tiny electrical impulses from the brain to all the different parts of your body. Embedded within these tiny impulses are nature’s instructions which activate life within each of our cells.  These impulses are what instruct the heart to pump, a wound to mend, the intestine to digest food, the lungs to breathe and the immune system to fight off germs that have penetrated our outer defenses.  The remarkable thing about the nervous system is that it demonstrates how the body truly is a self-healing and self-regulating organism.  We are designed to heal ourselves!  It just needs one thing, and that is no interference of any kind.

One of the unfortunate things that can go wrong within our bodies is something called a “Vertebral Subluxation”.  A vertebral subluxation is a neurological injury which occurs when one or more of the bones of the spine (Vertebra) become misaligned, usually due to a childhood trauma, and impinges either the spinal cord or the spinal nerve roots that exit the spine.

As a result, the flow of the electrical impulses of your nervous system become interfered and can no longer get to where they are required to go.  Consequently, your body will no longer be able to function the way it is designed and programmed to and will malfunction.  Left uncorrected your body will shift from a state of ease to a state of dis-ease.  Eventually, when the body can no longer handle the injury on its own, it will begin to talk to you in a language that you can understand, and this is called symptoms.  Symptoms are your body’s inner alarm system which goes off to tell you that something is going wrong on the inside of you that needs to be corrected.   Pain, digestive issues, bladder problems, numbness and tingling, shortness of breath, just to name a few, are all examples of symptoms that indicate that something is going wrong on the inside that needs to be corrected.

Our doctor is well trained and highly experienced, on how to locate and correct subluxations of the spine.   The chiropractic adjustment is a very safe, gentle and effective method of removing interference to the spinal cord and restoring normal energy flow of the central nervous system.  We welcome you to contact our office and have one of our team members schedule you, or your child, in for a new patient visit with one of our doctors.   Our new patient examination is incredibly thorough and we will get to the root cause of your health issue.

“Thank you so much for taking time out of your own personal life to help my Olympic experience come true.  I truly appreciate all that you did for me and also for what you do for all of your patients.”

“I was originally referred to Dr. Mike as I heard that he worked with young children.  My child suffered from a serious skin condition where she always got a severe rashe all over her body.   After two months of getting adjustments I can se that her skin condition is completely cleared-up.”

“My wife and two kids got the help that I didn't know they needed till it was pointed out. My daughters tilted posture was causing issues with her digestive system it was also causing her feet to pronate. What was easily fixed over a couple of months gives us a good feeling that we probably stopped a whole lot of future issues for my kids and ourselves.”
