Happy Feet

I have an elderly patient who has benefited from the NUCCA correction that I do in this office. I don't see her much because she holds her adjustment well. One day, she came in and asked if I could help her with her sore feet. I was surprised, because she had never told me that her feet hurt. She believed that was the way it was and that was the way it would always be. Her mother suffered with sore feet and her grandmother suffered with sore feet. There was a component of inherited weakness.
I carefully examined her feet and determined that I could help her. There were bones in the wrong place.
I have seen the NUCCA procedure, which is done at the top of the neck, correct misaligned bones of the feet, but in this case, it wasn't happening. So I began the correction process of these small bones. I anticipated that it would take about four weeks, and it did. At the end of that time, a problem that extended over at least three generations stopped being a problem.
Do you have a problem that chiropractic might help resolve? Would you like to find out?

How Old Do You Have To Be To See A Chiropractor?

Many people wonder if there's an age requirement before they consider seeing a chiropractor. The answer is that there is an age limit. You must be at least 1 second old before you can see a chiropractor. We just can't do it any faster than that!

With a misalignment of the first vertebrae (also called the atlas) being linked to all manner of childhood related health issue, it makes sense to consider chiropractic when it comes to your child's health!

Problems such as ADHD, autism, even SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) have been linked to vertebra misalignment. Don't worry, we are gentle as can be on our newborn patients. They often sleep right through the whole thing.

The Danger of Symptoms

It is easy to think that everything is fine if there are no symptoms. We tend to think, “Now that I have symptoms (neck pain, hot flashes, heart arrhythmia, bedwetting, high blood pressure, headaches, or your favorite malady), it’s time to get my spine checked. The problem is that the underlying problem (the atlas subluxation complex) had happened in secret (or not, if you just fell over the dog). The problem could have been corrected before you began with the symptoms. All we need to do is check. There will be certain signs for most people; the short leg and postural distortions. For some people the signs will be more subtle, cranial bone distortions and restriction of the blood flow in the head. Clinical experience is now being supported by research that shows the atlas subluxation complex can cause serious problems before you feel symptoms. The right question is not, “Can the NUCCA procedure help me?”, but instead, the right question is, “What can I do to help myself heal?” The answer is, “Get your spine and nerve system checked!”

Migraines and Chiropractic

Many people are surprised that when they are dealing with migraines, someone suggests they visit a chiropractor. What? How could that possibly help?

It helps all the time.

The spine moves out of alignment most often due to a trauma. That trauma doesn't need to be a car accident or a fall. It can be stress, bad posture, an overexcited hug from a friend... many, many things.

When the vertebra moves out of alignment and creates pressure on a nerve, the types of problems you can experience are numerous. Just a slight adjustment to the right part of the spine in the right direction makes all the difference. Time to give chiropractic a try?

Organic farming and your health...

Like the soil of an organic farm, the nerve system requires carefully measured upkeep. How is the acid content? Are the right minerals present in the right proportions? These are issues that have a measurable impact on the quality of the crop, and even determine whether the crop survives.
In reflecting on the thousands of cases I have managed with upper cervical care, I have come to recognize that the reason more people fail to get under care is this; The belief that chiropractic is just another "pill" for a particular problem. Let us consider this belief. If someone comes to me to make headaches go away and the digestion and elimination improves instead, can you call this procedure a failure? Or if someone comes to me for low back pain and their sleeping and vision improve, can you say, "It doesn't work!?" So if you cannot pin down how the procedure is going to help the body heal, what can you say about it? You can certainly say that it will set up the conditions favorable for the body to heal anything according to the conditions present.
