A wellness chiropractor is primarily concerned with aligning the spine by correcting the patient’s subluxations. Simply put, a subluxation is a misaligned vertebra which interferes with the nerve impulses. Nerve impulse is the electrical impulse from the brain that regulates all function of the body and keeps us alive.
The initial goal for all of our patients is to deliver relief of their symptoms but our primary goal is to do so by removing the nerve interference (subluxation) and restructuring the spine and posture to it’s most stable biomechanical position. By maximizing the integrity of the discs, joints, and nerves through spinal adjustments and postural correction, the body’s health potential and ability to function, improves. This is done through a rehabilitation program of adjustments and spinal exercises.
The length of correction and frequency of adjustment is determined by the severity of the patient’s subluxations and structural alignment.
Symptoms may be gone long before the spine is at its maximum corrected position, so adjustment schedules are kept intense to allow structural correction in the shortest amount of time.
The patient is then closely monitored by postural patterns and spinal readings until the subluxations are corrected and the spine is in it’s proper alignment.
Since subluxations are silent and research shows they begin at birth resulting in dysfunction and disease, the traditional chiropractor recommends families to be checked, especially children. Because of this, we work out fair and equitable payment plans so families can afford care, regardless of insurance coverage.
