  • Why do chiropractors require so many visits?

    Hi there, That is a very good question! Our spines register every stress in our internal and external environment. Your spine is a fulcrum where your arms and legs pivot in and any stress of work, sleep, etc., register in your spine/nerve system. Emotional stress pulls muscles as well as changes the tone of the nervous system. Finally, and perhaps more now than ever before, your nerve system has to deal with chemical imbalances such as pesticides, preservatives in the food, garbage in the air and water, etc. All of the stresses caused the spine to misaligned, this is why I have been under care for 44 years. Most of that has been on a maintenance program except when I have more trauma to my spine and require more visits. Of course, if you strengthen your core muscles, stretch your hamstrings, keep your spinal muscles loose, eat a good diet, meditate, and reduce stress, you will need less visits to your nervous system working well! Chiropractic is a lifestyle choice just like all of the other things you do to stay healthy. Unfortunately, most people try to use chiropractic in an allopathic method, which is the treatment for problems. READ MORE

  • How do you know if your body is out of alignment?

You cannot judge by symptoms as many people have not only a misalignment but wear and tear, or degenerative change (osteoarthritis) at one or multiple levels and have no symptoms.
