What Is Vertebral Subluxation?

Subluxation occurs when spinal bones move out of alignment and interfere with the function of your nerve system. Your nerve system controls and regulates every cell, organ and tissue in your body. If your nerves don't work right, you don't work right.

Chiropractic is the leading drug-free recovery method in the world today.Although many people seek chiropractic originally for the treatment and alleviation of symptoms, we believe education about health and the prevention of pain, illness, and disease is far more beneficial. While we are focusing on the reduction of our patients "symptoms or illness" we also teach them in changing their habits and current lifestyle to treat the "cause" of their conditions naturally and promote optimal function for a lifetime."

The Chiropractic Story

What is Chiropractic?

We're glad you asked! Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. Chiropractic care restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body, primarily the spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body via the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference.

Addressing the Root of the Problem

The nervous system serves as the body's wiring. If this wiring is inhibited, the signal does not reach the intended body part, and illness may result. Such interferences can manifest anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to that hand originate. A qualified chiropractor can examine the spine for interferences and remove them through controlled techniques.

Swedish Massage- The most common of the massage modalities.  Usually it involves a combination of the following strokes: long, flowing strokes (effleurage), kneading (petrissage), friction, vibration, or percussion (tapotement) for generalized relaxation.  Oil or lotion is often used to promote more fluid or glidng strokes..   

Trigger Point Release- A technique which requires firm pressure to specific points in muscles (that refer pain to other parts of the body) and stretches to the involved muscles.

Myofascial work- A non-invasive technique where the underlying, connective tissue that surrounds muscles is gently stretched to improve the muscle's ability to perform.

Acupressure- Using acupuncture points, acupressure is the non-invasive alternative.  Firm point stimulation to specific points are used to unblock meridians to promote better flow of Chi (or Qi), or energy, in the body.

Counterstrain- Using the same trigger points (see above), the involved muscle is passively shortened to decrease the affected muscle that is in spasm.

Seated or Chair Massage- Using a variety of massage techniques, it is done with a massage chair.  Often used in out-call events or in public, when clients need to remain fully clothed.

Sports Massage- It is used to reduce the incidents of injury (pre-event or while training) and/or to promote recovery (post-event) with the use of lighter strokes and stretching.

Clinical Sports Massage: Including Rotator Cuff, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, and Carpal Tunnel

Prenatal Massage: massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health.

Future continuing education courses will allow us to learn new techniques and abilities.
