What is Chiropractic?

 

Chiropractic is a hands-on procedure where I use specific manual pressure, called an adjustment, to restore normal motion to joints of the body.  Adjustments can be applied to any joint of the body.  They can be applied using significant force, little force, or no force at all.

 

My approach to Chiropractic is to use muscle testing to determine your needs, then provide an adjustment and/or soft tissue work to the areas which need correction.  For patients who are not comfortable with adjustments that make noises (a “crack”), I offer some non-force adjustments which can be as effective.  Patients often leave with home exercises to help in their recovery.

Chiropractic can help:

  • Sprains and strains

  • Migraines and other headaches

  • Preventing/ improving arthritis

  • Chronic/ acute pain

  • Neck, back, arm, leg, hand, and foot pain/discomfort

  • Reducing the symptoms of childhood ear infections

  • Stress reduction/ improve mood

  • Strengthen the immune system

  • Improve lymphatic movement

  • Increase joint range of motion

What is Applied Kinesiology?

The application of the study of muscles and body movement, is a non-invasive system of evaluation where muscle testing is used to communicate with your body. This allows me to identify functional imbalances in the body and then restore balance through conservative treatments such as;  joint manipulation, muscle work, diet, emotional stress release, or exercise.

 

A more technical explanation is that all muscles are controlled by the nervous system.  When a muscle, organ, or gland is not functioning properly, the nerves send a message to the brain.  These messages can block the function of muscles to work at their optimum level.  You would recognize this as feeling fatigue sooner than expected, emotional distress,  feeling like something “is just not right”, or pain.  Muscle testing is a tool used in Applied Kinesiology to test the function (not the strength) of the muscle, thereby enabling me to more accurately identify the source of your complaint be it physical pain, improper organ function, dietary sensitivities, or otherwise.   And then we can find a treatment to help restore your body to balance.
