Chiropractic

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease. Thomas A. Edison

Because of the way your spine is designed, improper motion or position of spinal bones, or vertebrae, can irritate or choke delicate nerves interfering with the function of the cells, organs, and tissues they control. Doctors of chiropractic call this a subluxation.

Car accidents, work-related injuries, the birth process, stress, poor diet, poor posture, sports injuries, slips or falls, sitting for prolonged periods are some of the activities that can cause subluxations.
To determine if you have a subluxation causing your health problem, we examine your spine to determine if any areas are causing nervous system interference. Examination may consist of postural analysis, static palpation, motion palpation, leg length checks, muscle testing, orthopedic and neurological testing, x-ray, and EMG nerve testing. 

Once you have been shown exact locations of nerve interference and get specific recommendations for your chiropractic care program, your doctor will use carefully directed and controlled pressure to return malpositioned spinal bones to their proper motion and position. This procedure, called a spinal adjustment, serves to remove interferences to your inborn healing ability.
