More often than not, when we tell someone that we are a chiropractic office, they immediately associate our vocation with neck and/or back pain. What many do not realize, however, is that chiropractic is a health care modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain. Chiropractic is a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness, including exercise, nutrition, personal development, and stress relief. We have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life (including newborns, children, and adolescents) and the outcome has been miraculous.
We define chiropractic as the discovery and removal of the vertebral subluxation, which is interference that is taking place in your Central Nervous System (CNS). It is important to recognize that our CNS is the master controller of our entire body and it directly correlates to our ability to function and exist. People who are suffering from allergies, asthma, headaches, and other conditions are living in a subluxated state, but when we provide these individuals with an adjustment, we are able to remove the interference, and the condition dissipates. In addition, patients who are under regular chiropractic care actually prevent these situations from impeding upon their lives.
When visiting our practice, we take the chiropractic lifestyle to a level where it becomes REAL for you. Not only do we offer the adjustment, but we combine these programs with tips on fitness, nutrition and stress relief. We take into account your entire body and the lifestyle choices that you make when developing customized protocols for you to follow. With this being said, please contact our office today so that we can schedule a health consultation with you!
Chiropractic for Kids
The Chiropractic care that we provide is an effective and affordable program that addresses children’s health conditions associated with the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Gentle, noninvasive and drug-free, chiropractic adjustments treat, resolve and prevent a wide range of health problems. Recent research by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) found spinal manipulative therapy safe and successful in treating children of all ages.
Chiropractic Care and Acute Conditions in Children
Acute conditions may result from birth trauma, sports mishaps and accidental injury. Chiropractic care benefits children by correcting the spinal alignment to improve their overall health. When vertebral joints are misaligned during birth or from a blow or fall, muscle tissue and nerves may also be affected. Spinal adjustment frees joints, restores motion and relieves nerve pressure, which may be the cause of additional ailments. Parents report successful treatment of children’s health issues such as acute earache, upper respiratory infection, muscle pain, neck pain and accident trauma.
Chiropractic Care and Chronic Conditions in Children
Chiropractic America reports that natural, drug-free chiropractic care is sometimes more effective than traditional medical approaches for chronic earache, scoliosis, and neck pain. Headaches and sleep disorders of nonspecific causes respond well to spinal adjustments, which affect and repair interrupted neural pathways. Asthma, allergy symptoms, and patterns of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may also be treatable with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic Care and Prevention of Ailments
Periodic ongoing adjustments at a young age may help stave off the above ailments before they begin. Proper spinal alignment now may delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition to maintaining children’s health, regular visits to our office will help instill the value of proactive health care in kids. They’ll be more likely to monitor and manage their health as they grow up and less likely to be afraid or in denial of any health problems. Encouraging good lifelong health habits is one of chiropractic’s best benefits for kids.

Simply stated, food is the essence of life. What we put into our bodies has the power to be life sustaining or life-depleting.
The human body is a self-healing and self-regulating machine. It miraculously extracts from food that which it needs and rids itself of the rest. Due to the business side of food and sustainability, many manufacturers have added chemicals, preservatives, additives, dyes, and other inert ingredients to enhance shelf life and profits. Unfortunately, these ingredients can be life-depleting over time.
For many people, food and diet are very problematic. Instead of being a source of nourishment, food has become an area of conflict and confusion- endless weight loss dramas, eating disorders, cravings, addictions, body image obsessions and never-ending searches for “the best” nutritional system.
It is our intention to support any and all patients with their nutritional needs. We would be honored to provide you with guidance when it comes to nutrition and overall lifestyle. This is why we would like to offer you the opportunity to schedule a Nutritional Consultation at our practice so that we can provide you with personalized recommendations and guidance.
Perinatal Chiropractic Care
At our office, we are highly trained in perinatal chiropractic care. This type of care is essential to consider, because during pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned, it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as C-sections.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits for women who are pregnant. Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
We are driven to help make our community the healthiest place to live in the country. If we are able to achieve this, then our children will grow up in a world where health and wellness is at the forefront of their decision making process, our neighbors will toss out their supposed “life-long” medications, and our entire culture will reap with vitality and utmost potential. On a regular basis we will host events, initiatives, lectures, teleseminars, and more including:
- Workshops about raising healthy families, proper nutrition, and a healthy nervous system
- Programs specializing in helping children with ADHD
- Teaching opportunities for schools and religious groups
- Exercise programs
- Walking Clubs
- Yoga classes
- Nutritional programs to transform the lives of those living with heart disease, diabetes, and hormonal imbalances
