If you haven’t visited a chiropractor before, you might be missing out. Millions of people around the world have experienced the incredible benefits of chiropractic care. One of the best things about chiropractic care is it’s a drug-free and surgery-free path to healing naturally.
Why Get Chiropractic Adjustments?
There are a lot of misconceptions about chiropractic and how chiropractors are trained. In fact, did you know many chiropractic programs also incorporate advanced nutrition training?
Chiropractic care is a more natural approach to treating back pain and many other health conditions than constant medicating and invasive procedures. Every ache, pain, and symptom in our bodies has an underlying cause. Though medication can offer temporary relief, it cannot correct functional problems of negatively affected spinal joints.
Moreover, chiropractic care is safe! We look to correct the underlying cause of the problem rather than simply masking the pain. Pain and symptoms are warning signs. Because the nervous system controls every cell and organ in your body, as your chiropractor, we will focus our attention on the health of your spine being properly aligned and, if there are misalignments, helping the spine come back into alignment, creating proper function.
The discs between spinal bones can also be a source of pain. These rings of fibrous tissues act as connectors, and shock absorbers for the spine. Various types of trauma cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge which puts pressure on delicate nearby nerves. This affects the rest of your body through the central nervous system. The simplicity and success of a chiropractic approach to pain is popular among patients who want to avoid both risky surgery and constant discomfort.
Adjusting techniques are modified for each individual patient according to their unique spinal issues.
Many things can lead to a vertebral subluxation. Some of the more common causes we have found are:
- A vertebra going out of place (“misalignment”) because of a slip or fall (i.e., “macrotrauma”).
- The entire spine misaligning globally due to poor posture.
- Joint swelling caused by damage done to the intervertebral joint.
- An inflammatory response caused by a poor diet, lack of pure water or psychological stress.
- Osteoporosis or degenerative changes of the spine or intervertebral discs.
- Trigger points and tight back muscles that pull the vertebrae out of place.

What To Expect During Your Chiropractic Visit
We want you to feel comfortable with the decision of joining our practice. Therefore, please read the information below and if you still have any questions, please call our office for an answer.
1. New Patient Forms
Complete the new patient forms when you arrive at the practice.
During the initial health consultation, you can share what you desire from your life and what you believe is preventing you from making this a reality. This consultation assesses your current well-being and then communicates your definition of a life without limitations.
At the conclusion of the initial health consultation, we will perform a complete and comprehensive chiropractic wellness examination that utilizes state of the art neurological Thermal and EMG Scanning systems, postural analysis and physical examinations.
What the 3 state of the art tests measure:
Looks at the temperature along each side of the spine. The body’s temperature controls are affected by pressure and tension in the spinal nerves. Researchers have found that changes in temperature along the spine are directly related to how well organs work! Measuring the subtle changes temperature control allows the doctor an inside view of how body systems are responding to stress.
Uses two sensors that lightly touch the skin along the back and neck
so that the tiny nerve signals what’s making your muscles work, and can be assessed.
Our databanks know exactly how much energy the muscles along the spine should “spend” to maintain proper posture and alignment. if these signals are too strong or even too weak, the computerized
program will detect and score the results. Muscles that are constantly overworked tire more easily and are part of the picture in a patient’s overall sense of fatigue and exhaustion.
In this examination is known as Heart Rate Variability(HRV). While you
sit quietly in the examination room, your hand is placed on a sensing platform that monitors your heart rate over 3 minutes.
4. Get Your Health Score
We live our entire lives through our nervous system. Every movement, sensation, emotion and organ function is under the guidance of the nerves. With CoreScoreTM, we can now accurately report on the efficiency of your nervous system. Ignoring and/or not measuring potential nerve interferences puts your health a risk.
The CoreScoreTM is made up of the three most important Spinal-neural tests: Pulse Wave Profiler, Surface EMG, and Thermal Scan. These tests tells us how stress is impacting your overall well-being. It precisely detects where and how deeply the problems are changing your spinal health.Chronic Stress and body tension damages your health. Based on your individual CoreScoreTM, the doctor will develop a personalised care plan, to move you towards optimal nerve function and a higher level of well-being.
