The Right Key

You’ve tried stretching, went to physical therapy and faithfully did all the exercises they prescribed.  But still your spine feels tight, rigid and locked up.  In your case, Chiropractic may hold the right key.

Unlike the gross manipulative therapy done by PT's and osteopaths, or the general movement offered by prescribed exercises, specific Chiropractic adjustments ONLY target the parts of your spine that need work.  Specificity is the key to results - knowing what spinal segments to move, when to move them and how much force to use is paramount to getting a favorable outcome… and that requires a skill set taught only in a reputable Chiropractic College.

You wouldn't use a sledge hammer to bust open your front door if the right key was handy to unlock it safely.  The same goes for your spine.  When it comes to unlocking a tough, painful back it's best to seek the advice of a master spinal locksmith (a DC) who knows what they're doing.  In the long run you'll save time, money and frustration hiring the right person for the job.

The Rest of the Family

The Rest of the Family

Why bring the rest of my family

"Mommy loves going to the Chiropractor. Ever since she's started, we've seen a huge change in her. She used to get headaches every day, but now she rarely gets them. Daddy notices that Mommy sleeps through the night more often now and she wakes up in a much happier mood. She's even doing more around the house and spending more time with us reading, playing and just being a great mom. We never see her popping those pills anymore.

Mommy told us when she goes to the Chiropractor they check her for something called a Subluxation... that's what's been making her sick all these years. They check her spine to see if she needs to get worked on. When she does they do something called an Adjustment to fix her. Mommy's been the healthiest she's been in a long time. We're all so happy for her and we love having our Mommy back. But we have one question,

With Mommy doing so well, we wonder if going to the Chiropractor could help us too. Daddy's always sore after work and he has to take more and more medicine for his high blood pressure. My sister has to take an inhaler every day for her asthma and I hate having to take stuff for my allergies and ear infections. We all want to be healthy like Mommy but we don't know where else to turn. Maybe the Chiropractor can help us too, if Mommy would only bring us to get checked...

The Scale Moves Slowly

If you jump on the scale after every healthy meal you ate, looking for an immediate change, you're going to drive yourself nuts. Doing good things for your body is good - but those good things may not register noticeable changes right away. The same goes for your adjustments.

It's common for clients to hop off the chiropractic table after an adjustment, looking for some instant, measurable change in the way they feel... and there are times when some relief is experienced. However, to expect an immediate resolution of a chronic complaint from one adjustment is no different than expecting to be 10 lbs lighter after just one low carb meal.

Patience is your friend and time is the road you must both travel to reap the health rewards you hope for. It takes work and time for your body to make the best of each Life enhancing adjustment. Be consistent and faithful with your care and you'll eventually experience the lasting results we know you're capable of getting.

Launching Your Care

Launching Your Care

Launching Your Care

In its heyday, the space shuttle would generate nearly 8 million pounds of thrust just to lift itself off the launch pad into the atmosphere.  Once beyond the earth’s gravitational pull, it didn’t require as much effort to stay in space and could effortlessly cruise at 17,500 mph with a fraction of that power.   The same can be said for your Chiropractic care plan.

The start of any healthy endeavor requires more effort – in Chiropractic that means more visits in the beginning to break free from the gravity of dis-ease and build forward momentum.  Once free from the ‘pull’ of poor habits and chronic illness, it requires less effort to keep you aloft.

It takes more effort to get off the initial care launch pad than it does to stay in a healthy orbit.  If you want to get results, expect to put more work in at the beginning of your care.   Your chiropractic team is ready to help you along the way… just stick with the mission plan and you’ll reach your destination.

Chipping Away at Dis-Ease

Chipping Away at Dis-Ease

David was sculpted out of a “ruined” block of marble rejected by all his contemporaries. In choosing the block, Michelangelo said that he looked past the flaws to visualize the figure that had to be freed.  He then merely chipped away at what was NOT David to reveal the masterpiece. Likewise, in his dramatic series known as the Captives, partially sculpted figures appear as if they are escaping from the stone that imprisons them. Subluxated patients are very similar.

Within each subluxated individual is a masterpiece waiting to emerge. Like Michelangelo, a skillful Chiropractor sees the potential health within every patient. Years of stress, trauma and fear acting as granite which entombs your potential - every adjustment acting as a finely placed chisel strike that gently chips away the stone to free the beautiful Life inside you. With time and persistency, a fine piece of art emerges.

No matter how covered, disfigured or unfinished you may feel, stay consistent with your care. Every adjustment that chips away at nerve interference reveals the amazing, healthy person who lies within you.

A Party in Your Spine

A Party in Your Spine

So what’s with the popping associated with certain types of Chiropractic adjustments?  Isn’t cracking your joints supposed to be bad for you?

Not all Chiropractic techniques involve the ‘cavitation’ of joints (the escape of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, which releases joint pressure).  Some use table or instrument assisted adjustments where no appreciable cavitation is experienced.  The ones that do however are no less safe, comfortable and effective at reducing spinal fixation, clearing nerve interference (subluxations) and improving your health.  As a matter of fact, it’s been shown by John Hopkins University that joint cavitation (specifically in the hand) does not contribute to the formation of arthritis as falsely believed by grandmothers worldwide!

When you hear the noise from a professionally delivered adjustment, it’s similar to the pressure release you get from opening a bottle of champagne.  It’s like having a party in your spine!  Ultimately, with less pressure your joints move better, line up better and just plain feel better.
