How We Practice

You were born with an amazing gift.

From the moment you were conceived, you knew how, and had the ability, to direct & control everything that happens in your body. From your growth and development to pumping your blood and breathing air, to turning food into energy, to fighting invasion by bacteria & viruses, to destroying your own cells gone rogue, you have complete knowledge and complete power within your body.

We call this knowledge and ability Innate Intelligence. This phenomenon exists simply because you are present in your own body! The massive amount of information it takes to do this flows from your brain, down through your spinal cord, and out through your nerves. We say it flows from Above, Down, Inside, Out.

If this system is working properly, you will probably live a long, healthy, balanced, and fulfilling life. The problem is that the system doesn’t always work the way it should.

A Subluxation is a misalignment in the spine that puts pressure or stress on the nerve. The spinal nerves branch out, creating the nervous system, which controls every organ, tissue, and all 70 trillion cells in the body. It only takes the weight of a dime to cause enough pressure on the nerve reducing its flow to cells, tissues, and organs like the heart or lungs.

When you have unchecked subluxations for days, weeks, months, years, and sometimes even decades, a process of degeneration will occur in the spine. More importantly, your nervous system will not be functioning correctly, your body will not function, and your health will suffer. The first dysfunction occurs which is closely followed by disease.

Next, a full-on disease state will set in, and eventually death. We only start to notice this process once disease appears, but once that happens, your body has not been functioning properly for a very long time before that. Often Western medicine and healthcare will intervene somewhere between disease and death. However, in Chiropractic we take a more preventative, proactive approach to health care and seek to remove the cause of disease before it can ever fully appear.

There are 3 causes for spinal subluxation that come from our daily life: Traumas, Toxins, and Thoughts.

  • Trauma: Birth, car accident, slip, and fall, repetitive stress injury, poor posture, or improper alignment during yoga practice or exercise.
  • Toxins: Standard American Diet, genetically modified food and food grown with pesticides, pharmaceutical drugs, synthetic vitamins, air and water pollution, failure to clear your body’s own waste products.
  • Thoughts: Stress, anxiety, depression, and negative thought patterns.
