What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal chord and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if your body is working right. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine, called a subluxation, can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments can help improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.

Neuro-Muscular Reeducation...

is the use of stretching, strengthening, and specialized bio-mechanical exercises to relieve chronic pain by creating new ways of resting, holding and moving the human body. Neuromuscular reeducation creates new pathways for the muscles and joints. Resulting in increasing mobility and promoting pain free, healthy tissues. It is used as an adjunct to chiropractic therapy for acute and chronic pain conditions. It is used, at times, to correct the cause of a painful conditionsn caused by clear bio-mechanical and postural factors.

Massage

There are three types of massages. The first is a Swedish (which is a light massage for overall wellness). Second is a deep tissue (breaks down adhesion's and allow increased circulation). Lastly, injury treatment (for the unfortunate moments in life).

Acupuncture

Targets specific points in the body to relieve pressure and pain promoting relief and a stress free lifestyle.

Spinal Decompression...

System is a non-surgical rehabilitation system .  It helps in the management of pain that is caused by neck and low back dysfunction.  This gentle treatment targets the cause of the pain with proper patient positioning and programming of the computer directed traction system.  It works through decompression  of the inter-vertebral discs and facet joints by relieving pressure due to compression and improper spinal alignment.  This process gently relaxes the painfully spasming muscles and stretches scar tissue.

Bio Cranial

What is BioCranial System?

BioCranial System is a natural, hands on approach to releasing the body's inborn capacity to heal and regenerate itself. BioCranial can be applied in only minutes, yet it has profound effects on overall health and well-being.

The BioCranial System works to return proper function to the nervous system and proper balance to body structure. Thus it has positive effects on conditions ranging from aches and pain to overall health and wellness.

BioCranial System makes a wonderful addition to anyone's health care regime.

The Dura/Mater Plays a Key Role

To understand the way the BioCranial System reduces stress and promotes wellness it is important for practitioners to be knowledgeable about the nature and function of the dura mater -literally translated as "tough mother."

The dura mater is a tough membrane composed ofthick, dense, white, inelastic fibrous connective tissue. It protects the brain and the spinal cord.

The dura mater is also linked with spinal nerves extending throughout the body, as the epineurium of the peripheral nerves, a continuation of the dura mater of the central nervous system. The cranial dura is also tied in with the body's entire fascial system, and also with the endocrine system through its relationship to the hypothalamic-pituitary tract.

If there is a distortion of the normal bones, or a lack of proper movement at the cranial sutures, the dura mater becomes subject to tensions and stress. This dural stress can be transmitted to spinal segments and the sacrum, which in turn can increase the possibility of spinal misalignment, loss of spinal curves and structural imbalance.

The BioCranial System promotes well ness by relieving the strain within the cranial dura system. This helps to release tension in the nervous system and restore proper cerebrospinal fluid flow. Reducing strain on the cranial dura system also contributes to proper reintegration ofthe brain hemispheres. The treatment itself is a very mild one. To the patient the procedure simply feels like a slow and controlled stretching of the muscles in the neck and shoulder regions. The treatment takes only a couple of minutes and there are no quick, popping movements of the spine involved with the BioCranial System.

Patients who receive the BioCranial System routinely report positive changes in the following areas.

  • Neck and back (pain relief, increased range of motion)
  • Headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sleep quality and energy
  • Mental focus (clarity of thinking)
  • Stress relief, calm
  • Asthma
  • Digestive disorders
  • Sinus pain/pressure
  • Anxiety
  • Sports (strength and balance)

Can BioCranial System Help Me?

Many people with a wide variety of health problems have been helped using the BioCranial System. As the body is returned to optimum function it becomes possible for true healing and repair to begin. Often times even chronic problems have responded well to the BioCranial System approach after more conventional methods have failed.

BioCranial System practitioners considers consider themselves facilitators of "releasing" the body's own inborn capacity to heal and be well. Once this goal has been achieved you are in the best position possible for relief and healing to occur.
