If your spine and Central Nervous System are "abnormal," There is a need for corrective chiropractic care. This type of care will restore "normal" spinal position and alignment. By properly restoring normal curves to the spine and aligning the vertebrae, it will eliminate CNS interference allowing your body to function and heal "normally." This gives you your optimum chance to be at 100 percent of your God-given potential.

As a new patient, you obviously have pain or concerns that need to be addressed promptly. At first you may need to visit our office two or three times weekly, this will allow for concentrated treatments to reduce or eliminate the symptoms that are occurring. This phase of chiropractic care is considered the Relief Care Phase.
Many people go about their daily lives pain-free and without any symptoms believing they are healthy, the truth is sometimes pain alone is not the indicator that something is wrong. Many health conditions have no symptoms whatsoever but can be very serious conditions, such as, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.
Spinal problems are one of the few conditions that will generally be accompanied with pain as a first symptom, and can be reduced or eliminated through chiropractic treatments.
After receiving Relief Care and eliminating or reducing your symptoms, some may believe there is no need for further treatments, actually the Corrective Care phase is a very important step needed to restore, heal, and prevent symptoms from recurring. Your condition will determine the amount of treatments needed to complete the healing process. To help improve and accelerate the healing process you can perform certain exercises at the clinic, or in the comfort of your own home.
This phase could take a few months or more depending on the seriousness of your condition. Soreness or flare-ups may occur and are completely normal.
Now that you are healed and feel better than ever, routine chiropractic care will help to ensure that this feeling will never fade away. A program including regular adjustments, exercise, and a healthy diet will help ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system.
The Wellness Care phase will give you the benefit of living life to the fullest.
Feeling tired, drained, exhausted, and depressed, these are symptoms commonly known as fatigue. Fatigue is a sign that your body is feeling physical or emotional stress. Thinking that it will just go away is a common mistake that everyone does. Causes are determined by the person, the way they’re dieting, what medications they are on, lack of activity, lack of exercise, and just feeling alone. The common person can feel fatigue or knows someone who feels fatigue, helping them and/or yourself can change your life.
The first step to living your life to the fullest is yours to make, so take action and get the energy back in your life.
Everyday people suffer from pain that is being directed inside their head, the term we use for this is headaches.
Headaches are a fairly common pain for everyone, and most people just rely on medication like aspirin to deal with it. What these people do not realize is that the pain causing the headache may be coming from some other region in the body and will continue unless treated. Stress, back, and even muscle pain can send pain signals to the nerves, arteries, and veins inside their head to cause these headaches.
Chiropractic care can relieve and correct the problem causing the pain. We want to help you live your life pain free. There are also ways you can help yourself, like keeping active and getting daily exercise.
You wake every morning feeling like you were up all night, well maybe you were. Even though you were sleeping all through the night you may be experiencing sleep disturbances. There are over 70 different types of sleep disorders and are all categorized in three areas lack of sleep, disturbed sleep, and excessive sleep. Sleep disturbances occur throughout the night without you even knowing it, this can be caused by many different problems. Keeping your body in shape, dieting correctly, removing caffeine, and developing a good lifestyle can correct these problems. Everyone is different, and your Chiropractor can help.
There are stages in your sleep that your body must go through to achieve a good night sleep, in fact there are 5. This cycles over and over throughout the night.
Stage 1 – Light sleep and relaxation of the muscles. ( can wake up)
Stage 2 – Activity in the brain slows and eye movement stops.
Stage 3 – Brains waves become slow (delta waves) and small quick waves occur.
Stage 4 – Brains waves are all delta wave.
Stage 5 – (REM) Rapid Eye Movement – dreams occur.
This usually takes about an hour and a half to complete 1 cycle.
Sleep is needed for your body to function properly, so take care of yourself and do what it takes to achieve a good night sleep.
Sinus and Allergies
Your body has its own built in immune system to protect you from outside elements, such as dust, pollen, pollution, etc. If your immune system is not working properly you may suffer from, watery eyes, a running nose, sneezing, or many other threats of sicknesses.
Histamines cause most sinus and allergy problems, and for example most people treat these problems with anti-histamines. These medications will dry the membranes and suppress the symptoms but is not a cure. Stress can often be a factor why your immune system is not working properly and, when ignored, your body cannot correct itself.
The nervous system and immune system, when working properly, can work as a natural healing aid and help to correct your sinus and allergy symptoms.
Most people that have mood swings do not even realize how unpredictable their moods can fluctuate. They can become irritable and unreasonable over the smallest of things and sometimes are quite difficult just to be around. Medical doctors mostly treat these symptoms with medications compiled of chemical solutions that may have negative side effects worst than the symptoms themselves. These moods swings may be the result of a person’s body missing a natural and needed ingredient. Chiropractors take a natural approach to treating these symptoms through diet, supplements and exercise. Many Chiropractic patients have found relief and can live normal, healthy lives again.
When pain occurs it is showing you that somewhere in your body a problem has surfaced. People shrug pain off everyday thinking it will work its way out, but that may not be the case. You might need to seek professional help to correct and maintain the problem.
There are two types of pain:
1. Acute Pain- This pain is new to the body and can be caused by a sprain, cut, broken bone etc. The pain can be mild to severe and will usually dissipate with healing.
2. Chronic Pain- This pain is different and might be accompanied by insomnia, exhaustion, even weight change and can last up to six months or more. Many look to painkillers to alienate the symptoms, this seems like the right thing to do, after all no one wants to live in the discomfort of pain. Quite often painkillers will mask the cause of the problem by reducing the amount of pain. Doesn’t it make more sense to find the true cause of the pain and treat it directly?
Chiropractic can be your answer to a better lifestyle.
