Second, we are excited to announce the addition of our new staff, Ms. Charlye Brandon!  She is the new chiropractic assistant!  Charlye has a warm friendly personality that we all adore and a smile that will melt the hardest hearts!  Please come by soon and meet her and welcome her to our team!

Finally, we have added a new service to the office.  It is called the K-Laser, cold laser therapy.  K-Laser is an FDA cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration.  Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area.  This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness, and pain.  We have added K-Laser therapy to our practice, because we want to provide a high tech treatment option for our patients to heal quickly, recover fully, and reduce pain effectively.  We are seeing tremendous results with simple knee or back pain to complex fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy.  Please call the office to learn more and schedule a consultation!

As things continue on this positive track, we will continue adding services and staff so watch for future updates!  As always, thank you for being a part of our journey!  We appreciate you!

What Do Chiropractic Adjustments Do?

Specific scientific chiropractic adjustments can reduce pressure on your trillions of delicate nerves.

Your nervous system is the control center of your body, and it is not without weaknesses.

Nerves and nerve bundles are soft tissue. They don’t function well under physical pressure.  In fact it has been shown that inflammation, a bulging disc, or fragment floating around can interfere with proper nerve conduction. The stuck joint as discussed previously can also physically be stuck pressing on a nerve, or could be causing inflammation that is pressing on the nerve, or could just be moving in a way that rubs the nerve. In any case, the adjustment can cause a relief of this health robbing pressure through movement of the joint to the correct position, or motion.

Adjustments provide improved nutrient supply. This is huge when you’re talking about being healthy. The cartilage and other structures inside of a joint have NO blood supply. NONE! These structures get their nutrients through movement and motion. The blood supply goes to the outside of the joint and nutrients move into the synovial fluid of the joint. Joint motion moves this fluid around thus providing “fresh” nutrients to all parts of the joint, as well as removing waste. If a joint becomes locked down by muscle spasm, scar tissue, a cast, or any other means, for a prolonged period of time the joint begins to feel “stiff.” You know the feeling of needing to stretch after sitting in the car for a long time. That’s why it’s so important to be adjusted on a regular basis. If you don’t, you’re going to get areas in your body that get ‘stuck’. Not a good thing and your body will suffer for this.

Don’t wait until you have symptoms. Make sure you’re tuned up and ready for the week. If you’re not, things can go wrong fast. Please have your friends or family members call to get a check up.
