How do I know if I need care?
Because of the way your spine is designed, improper motion or position of spinal bones can irritate or choke delicate nerves - interfering with the function of the tissues they control. Doctors call this a subluxation. Poor posture, repetitive movements, stress, injury and accidents make us all vulnerable and can cause these spinal misalignments. Subluxations can manifest themselves as pain, discomfort, loss of range of motion, numbness and tingling, headaches, low energy as well as a host of other symptoms.
These interferences or subluxations can produce a variety of health problems. Nerve pressure can cause numbness, weakness or the under-performance of organs and tissues. Or, spinal misalignment can cause nerve tissue to stretch, chafe or become irritated. This can distort nerve messages between your body and your brain. The result? Hyperactive organ function, high blood pressure or even pain and disease.
A thorough examination helps locate areas of nervous system compromise. The moving bones of the spine are common culprits. Then, specific chiropractic adjustments help to reduce these interferences. The intent is to restore your body's ability to regulate and heal itself - without drugs or surgery. Chiropractic honours the wisdom of your body. And it has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century.
After a thorough examination and a review of your health history, Dr. Michelle Crispe will recommend a specific care program. If yours is a chiropractic case, this will include specific spinal adjustments, lifestyle review and possible referral to our nutritionist as well as an exercise prescription.
The word "adjustment" describes hundreds of ways of using carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal bones to a more normal position and motion. When spinal function is improved, nervous system function (health) can improve too.
After years of training, chiropractic doctors have become experts at using just the right amount of force in the right direction. This may require a quick movement or, in other instances, a slow and constant pressure. Chiropractic adjustments are safe and patients often feel relief after only a few treatments.
