  • What is Chiropractic?
    Chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy of locating and correcting vertebral subluxations through gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments thus allowing your body to function at its optimum potential.
  • What Is Subluxation?
    A misalignment of one or more of your spinal bones (vertebrae), which causes interference to your nervous system. If your nervous system is interfered with, your body’s natural ability to heal itself and function at its optimum potential becomes impaired. A subluxation is a perfect example of how structure affects function.
  • What is an Adjustment?
    A gentle, specific “thrust” delivered by hand or instrument. The purpose of the adjustment is to correct your spinal subluxation(s) thus removing the nerve interference in your body.
  • Exactly What Sort of Education and Training Do Chiropractors Have?
    Educational requirements for doctors of chiropractic are amongst the more stringent of any of the health care professions. Doctor of Chiropractic are educated in problems associated with the nerves, muscles, tendons, and joints. Undergraduate work consists of 3-4 years of prerequisites, including courses in biology, organic and inorganic chemistry, physics, psychology, and connected lab work. A chiropractor will complete nearly four to five years of graduate work with a minimum of 4,820 hours of classroom, laboratory, and clinical experience. Chiropractors are educated in orthopedics, neurology, physiology, human anatomy, radiology, and physical therapy. Chiropractic training also consists of hundreds of hours of hands-on clinical training.
  • Is Chiropractic Treatment Proper for Kids?
    Yes, kids can take advantage of chiropractic care. Children experience mental, chemical, and physical stressors just as adults do. Children also are very active and encounter numerous types of falls and impacts from day-to-day living along with taking part in sporting activities. Injuries such as these might cause lots of reasons for chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is gentle and always adapted to the specific client. Chiropractic care for children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness.
  • Why Should Pregnant Women See a Chiropractor?
    During the course of pregnancy the female body adapts to the physical, emotional, and hormonal changes. Due to these changes, pregnant women may start to experience lower back pain, headaches, neck/upper back stiffness, or other symptoms. Chiropractic care is very gentle and effective during this time. Research shows chiropractic care is a safe means to restore proper pelvic balance and function, reducing intrauterine constraints. It helps restore the normal physiological function of the mother and improve her comfort throughout pregnancy in preparation for a safer, easier birth. Healthy moms equal healthy kids. Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers choices and benefits for your greater health and well-being.
  • How Long Will it Take for My Body to Heal?
    It depends on your personal history, current physical condition, level of stress, and how well you follow the chiropractic recommendations. Your body has tolerated physical, chemical, and emotional stress for years. It took years for your body to get to its current level of dis-ease. Healing is a process, and like every process in nature, healing takes time. It is unrealistic to expect a permanent correction of condition instantly after we have abused the body for decades.
  • What Causes the Sound Made During a Chiropractic Adjustment?
    That sound is not your spine “cracking” or “popping” as most people think. That sound is created by gas (in this case, nitrogen) rushing in to fill the partial vacuum created when the joints are slightly separated. Another example of this phenomenon would be the “pop” sound you hear when the cork is taken out of a champagne bottle. Not all chiropractic techniques use force and thus produce no noise at all. The noise is not important to adjust; the key is taking the pressure off of the nerve.
  • Why Should I Continue Chiropractic Care If I Do Not Have Any Symptoms and I Feel Better?
    Just because symptoms disappear, does not mean your subluxations are corrected. Most of the practice members seen in our office have spinal degeneration (decay) that has taken years to develop. The trauma of the birth process slips, falls, accidents, and countless other stresses throughout your lifetime adversely affect the health of your spine. The longer you wait to have your spine checked by a chiropractor, the longer it will take to correct your subluxations. However, how you choose to use chiropractic care is ultimately up to you. It has been our experience that those who stop care when they are “feeling fine” return with the same health challenge(s) which brought them to our office in the first place…only it’s usually gotten worse. On the other hand, those practice members who commit to long-term, wellness chiropractic care, find their health challenge(s) rarely return and they enjoy a higher quality of life and health.

  • What Is Nutrition Response Testing?
    Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health. Our clinical proven system may be quite different from any other healing practice that you may have experienced. We will have some questions for you before and during the testing. The actual procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all of the information and feedback needed. The body responds to the procedure reliably and consistently. This feedback is so precise that it opens the door to a safe and lasting recovery, even in cases where everything else has failed.
  • What Are You Testing For?
    Through our analysis, we are testing your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how your nervous system is doing as it relates to the body’s organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc. Once a weak reflex is identified, we determine if the weakness is due to a food, chemical, heavy metal, etc. or nutritional deficiency.
  • How Soon Will I See Improvement?
    Although every case is different, we often hear enthusiastic reports from patients in as little as 4-6 weeks. The fastest recoveries are often from those who have most closely adhered to their recommended nutritional program.

    NRT works in harmony with chiropractic adjustments to provide your body what it needs to heal itself. Our bodies are designed to heal themselves even though we don’t always make it easy! We live in a world where we are exposed to physical, chemical, and mental stresses every day. From high stress jobs to relationships, chemicals in our foods and environment, our bodies are put under tremendous stress. The addition of NRT to your chiropractic program supports the extraordinary properties of the human cells and tissues to bring about healing and health changes exactly as nature intended. After all, our bodies are designed to heal themselves. The result can lead to adjustments that hold better and an overall improvement in your health.

  • What Health Conditions Are Common With Nutrition Response Testing Patients Initially?

  • What Is the History of Nutrition Response Testing?
    NRT was originally developed by Freddie Ulan, D.C., N.D., C.C.N., and Lester Bryman, D.C. It was developed out of the frustration Freddie Ulan felt in seeing patients coming back to have the same subluxations treated repeatedly, often several times each week. Although his patients received relief from their adjustments, he felt it wasn’t good enough. Furthermore, his own health crises left him further pondering why his own chiropractic adjustments were not holding for any length of time and why he continued to suffer from declining health in spite of all the things he tried. Ulan began an in-depth study of why subluxations recur. This led him to research into nutritional deficiencies and how they can affect overall health.
