Chiropractors are the primary care professional for spinal health and well-being. Hippocrates said “When in sickness, look at the spine first.” Structure is in fact the base of the pyramid of health, as shown below. Therefore, spinal health is essential for health and vitality.
Disturbances to a healthy structure are called subluxations. Subluxations must be removed so that the brain and the body can communicate correctly. Having subluxations is like having poor cellphone reception; it is very difficult for your body to properly communicate. We want to bring you back to an area with full bars.
Kinesiology, by definition, is the study of human movement. This chiropractic technique is primarily a diagnostic technique. It uses muscle testing to identify areas of dysfunction. Once identified, a variety of other techniques are used to correct the indicated problem. Some of the techniques used are Sacro-Occipital technique, Diversified, Thompson, and nutritional compounds.
In Kinesiology, we address the triad of health. Causes of dysfunction can be chemical, mental, or structural as seen to the left. Applied Kinesiology can help us determine which of the three is causing your symptoms so that we can treat the problem or direct you to the proper healthcare professional who can.
Pregnancy and Pediatrics
Regardless of your birth plan, we are committed to make your pregnancy as healthy as possible so that you can experience the birth you want.
From pain conditions such as sciatica, to morning sickness, and the baby’s position; chiropractic can have a positive impact on many aspects of birth. This is because getting your body adjusted changes pain input to the brain. A rule in neurology is that movement inhibits pain. Therefore, if we create movement in the spine, you ultimately feel less pain. We also stabilize muscles.
This is very important during the pregnancy to prevent abdominal muscle tearing by having a strong core. Another significant factor to carry through a healthy pregnancy is having pelvic floor strength. We can help you obtain such strength by creating more movement in the pelvis to make birth easier. Balancing the pelvis can also have an positive effect on the baby’s position. Dr. Brooks and Dr. Tourjee are trained in pregnancy specific protocols, such as Webster, that help balance the pelvis.
Many store-bought supplements lead to digestive discomfort because they are made in a lab. We use whole food supplements, where the nutrients are combined as they are in natural foods. This means that, for example, our vitamin A supplement consists of just ground up dried carrots. This makes vitamins easy for the body to recognize and digest. That way you are not just paying for expensive urine (if you are not absorbing your pills, this is where they will end up).
What Is The Flexion-Distraction Technique?
Flexion-Distraction, (F/D) is a gentle, chiropractic treatment procedure utilized for back and neck pain. Flexion-Distraction is a safe alternative to back surgery for those 95% of patients whose conditions do not demand surgical intervention. The doctor is in control of the treatment movements at all times. Flexion-Distraction is utilized for many conditions such as:
• Disc Herniation/ Bulging Disc / Herniated Disc
