You have an amazing natural healing power in your brain and spinal cord. They are your direct line of communication to the rest of your body. Your spine protects your spinal cord. Therefore, it is important to maintain the health of your spine if you want your nervous system to function properly.
Misalignments in your spine place pressure on your nerves, preventing your nervous system from communicating effectively to the rest of your body. This can cause disk degeneration, pain, and disease.
Our mission is to help you live a healthier, happier life by moving your spine towards correction, and giving your body the opportunity to work at 100% again!
The purpose of your spine is to protect your spinal cord. When your spine is properly aligned, your nervous systems is able to function effectively. When mis-alignments in the spine occur, they can pinch or compress the nerves, causing pain, degeneration, and often neurological signs such as numbness and tingling.
By re-aligning the spine with chiropractic adjustments, we relieve the pressure on your nervous system, and allow your body to heal itself from the inside out.
Migraines or headaches can be caused by several different issues, and often vary in severity and types of pain. Drug reactions, TMJ, changes in blood sugar or blood pressure, fatigue, and muscle tension can all cause headaches. Often, headaches can stem from the neck or cervical spine structures.
Numerous studies have shown that chiropractic care is very effective in the treatment of tension headaches, and also reducing the frequency and severity of migraines.
Pregnancy shifts a woman’s centre of gravity, causing pressure and stress on the pelvic and low back joints. The added weight as the baby grows increases curvature in the low back and causes even more stress on facet joints.
Existing problems in a woman’s spine will exacerbate causing pain and difficulty in daily tasks. Chiropractic care relieves pressure by restoring a state of balance making for an easier pregnancy, and less chance of medical intervention during delivery.
Our low back is a very unstable part of the spine. A healthy spine is able to sustain a tremendous amount of pressure. However, when compromised, even simple tasks such as bending down to tie your shoes or lifting groceries can cause an injury.
Poor posture, stress, kidney related problems, sprains, strains and spasms can cause low back pain, but it is often a misaligned vertebrae, herniated disc or pinched nerve that is causing the pain.
Adjusting the lumbar spine and pelvis to regain normal position and motion corrects this problem.
