Your nervous system, simply put, controls and coordinates the function of all cells, tissues, organs, and systems in your body 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It is constantly monitoring every aspect of your life and functional capabilities and trying to adapt, correct or repair your body when and where necessary. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of your joints, muscles and nerves through the use of an adjustment. A spinal or extremity adjustment can restore normal movement, relieve pain and stimulate higher function of your brain and nervous system resulting in a renewed sense of vitality. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most.
Treatment is uniquely tailored for each patient, focusing on alleviating pain, stabilizing the issue and maintaining proper body structure. In addition to this, we inspire and educate our patients to become a more active participant in their own well being.
Acupuncture treatments consist of inserting thin, disposable needles into the skin. Stimulating the body and meridians with acupuncture needles activates neurological, muscular, endocrine, and immunological/inflammatory mechanisms. These responses promote healing and balance, alleviate pain, provide stress relief and induce physical and psychological relaxation. Acupuncture is used to treat many different diseases, disorders and pain conditions. Common ailments that respond well to acupuncture include: tendinitis, arthritis, headaches, chronic pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, respiratory disorders, skin problems, dysmmenorhea and digestive disorders.
How does acupuncture work? Acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese theories of the flow of Qi (pronounced chee, energy) through distinct meridians or pathways that cover the body, similar to the pathways of your nerves and blood vessels. Acupuncture allows Qi to flow toward areas where it is deficient and away from areas where it is in excess, thus restoring balance, which promotes general health and resistance to disease. Acupuncture needles placed along specific points can improve vitality, blood circulation and restore the natural balance of the body.
