What kinds of conditions does a chiropractor treat?
Chiropractic care is desgned to treat one central problem with everyone, a dysregulated nervous system. The brain controls the entire body and when there is spinal tension, postural weaknesses and chronic health challenges the brain loses its ability to adapt and heal. A specific chiropractic adjustment allows the brain to adapt and therfore aid in its ability to regulate all systems, thus treating a myriad of symptoms.

What is Torque Release Technique?
Torque Release Technique (TRT) is the most up-to-date chiropractic technique available, and was designed as part of scientific research into the health benefits of chiropractic. TRT is a very gentle adjusting procedure that focuses on ridding the body of neurological interference (subluxation) that keeps the body from functioning at its highest level.

If I'm pregnant can I still see a chiropractor?
It is absolutely encouraged to get adjusted during pregnancy because of how critical the health of the mother is to the health of the baby she is carrying. Research has long shown that a mother’s nutrition, neurological function, stress, and overall well-being has a drastic impact on the growth and development of the baby. All of a woman’s ability to carry, develop, and deliver a baby depends on the function of a healthy nervous system, and by removing interferences found in the communication between the brain and body, this process is aided tremendously.

Why do you adjust children?
The fact that a chiropractor would suggest having a child under chiropractic care is confusing to many, because we often think of addressing our health when something is clearly wrong, but chiropractic is not under that paradigm. The kinds of developmental changes children go through set them up for success or failure for the rest of their lives, and a child’s growth, adaptation and resiliency to stress and disease hinges on the health and performance of their nervous system.
The brain’s ability to compensate for injury and illness, as well as its ability to adjust its activities in response to new situations or changes in the environment (neuroplasticity) determines the rate at which a child will grow, develop, learn and adapt in the future. By optimizing this neuroplasticity at a young age, chiropractic contributes significantly to the health and well being of any developing child, just as it would with an adult.
