A chiropractic adjustment happens after a chiropractor applies a very specific correction to the spine. Your body actually makes the adjustment with the help of a chiropractor.
A subluxation is a misalignment in the spine that puts pressure on the spinal cord the nerves or both. It prevents the life energy in the brain from getting to the body. The result if left uncorrected is damage to the nervous system and the cells and body parts that can longer receive proper instructions to function normally . This can be happening with or without pain.
Most of our patients report that being adjusted feels great. However, in some cases the individual may be sore the first couple of times as swelling can sometimes occur in areas where damage has previously built up in the area of subluxation and surrounding tissues. One important thing to mention with our type of practice, we make the adjustments on YOUR body's timing. If it doesn't move or is too painful to touch we can just give it time. As a practice member, you have the option to choose to pay one low fee every month and have the option to come back in the same day or even every day to be checked for subluxation. An adjustment takes only a minute or two, but the vital nerve energy it releases can last for hours, days, or even weeks, depending on the stage of your care.

Literally thousands of health studies, including research by the U.S. government, have shown that Chiropractic is beneficial in maximizing health, boosting immunity, relieving the symptoms of sickness and disease, and restoring normal function back to the body.
YES! Let me say it again, YES! An adjustment will help your body regain control and balance to handle whatever you are dealing with. Would you rather have 100% nerve flow to all the parts of your body or something less than 100%? We always strive for 100% even if we are not having symptoms, but if we are having symptoms we get our spine checked even more to prevent the damaging effects of subluxation.
YES! There are many very gentle techniques that can be employed to assure proper safety for newborns to the elderly.

No, even chiropractors need chiropractors to adjust them. The worst spines are those of people who manipulate their own spines. Manipulation can even be dangerous. An adjustment removes subluxation and con not be to oneself.

Yes, having your babies and kids checked by a chiropractor is very important since babies get out of alignment during the birthing process. A small injury in a child left uncorrected will begin to degenerate and may not show up for 10 or 20 years. Chiropractic is completely safe for babies and kids. What is not safe is allowing your child to grow up with the same problems you are experiencing.
