As Chiropractors, we understand the body's innate drive to heal. Every part of your body, including your organs, is regulated by your brain. Information travels from the body to the brain and vice versa from the brain to the body through a network of nerves. Chiropractic care helps to keep those pathways clear and can provide a "reset" to the brain much like rebooting a computer.
We have lots of different nerve fibers in our body relaying everything from where we are in time and space, to muscle pain and bone alignment, to inflammation signals and the overall health of our organs. When we are out of alignment, these signals can be impeded.
The Central Nervous System takes care of movement, pain signals, strength and alignment.
The Autonomic Nervous System controls heart rate, breathing, and how we handle stress. This system is also involved in our hormonal health, food absorption and digestion, metabolic function, immunity and sleep.
It is important to recognize that PAIN is the final stage in letting the brain know there is a problem. If you are in an accident, that signal travels immediately. But if the wear and tear on the body is happening over time, pain may not show up until you experience "the straw that broke the camel's back. Getting adjusted can reduce the possibility of injury and even eliminate that proverbial "straw".
In some ways, children are the MOST IMPORTANT DEMOGRAPHIC for Chiropractic care. So much of their "play" involves training the brain and building neurological pathways. Chlidren are not born with fully developed skeletal systems. First through their birth experience and then through tumbling and falling, we commonly see their skeletal systems are out of alignment. As their bodies form bone, we want to maximize the position of their skeletal system!
We use a multipronged approach to support your structural alignment including full body adjustments, myofascial blasts, Passive Yoga Stretch, muscle firing resets using e-stim, and ionophoresis (using ultrasound to push natural compounds like Arnica, CBD and white willow bark directly into the site of injury). We also treat Pediatric patients!
