Rockford Chiropractor - Helping Accident Victims

Click Here for Video
If you have ever been in an accident, it's easy to overlook the possibility that, even though you are not bleeding, you might have been hurt deeply by the event. Sometimes, such as with Tony Schumacher depicted in this video, the injuries are serious enough that all manner of procedures are employed to put you back together again - surgery, orthopedic interventions, drugs. But once the big stuff is done, what about the little stuff that everyone seems to overlook?
When the first bone in the neck is jarred out of position (there are limits to ligament elasticity), it causes pressure on the brainstem region of the spinal cord. That's the control area for many functions of the body. Blood flow is impaired, nerve tissue is reversibly damaged, and health begins to fail.
The upper cervical doctor is the only doctor trained to detect and correct this type of problem. It is called the "Atlas Subluxation Complex." The ASC can be the original cause for hundreds of disease states, and when a person's health declines after an accident, the likely reason is the presence of the ASC.
Consider 1st Step Chiropractic, S.C., when you think it's time to turn the decline around. 815-398-4500.

Rockford Chiropractor - Helping the Diabetic

Sharing this fascinating letter with you to let you know of the wonderful things the body can accomplish when we remove stress from the trillions of nerve fibers at the base of the brain with the NUCCA procedure at 1st Step Chiropractic, S.C.

Dr. Schalow, I can’t thank you enough! I have always had a deep fear of diabetes. At the end of last year, I was exhibiting symptoms. Fortunately, I was scheduled for a routine physical. The examining MD said my blood sugar was off the charts (500+) and I needed to see my regular MD immediately, as I was diabetic.

Unwilling to embrace diabetes and also unwilling to see my “regular” MD so quickly, we decided to pay a visit for your opinion. You have successfully treated all of my family for a range of afflictions, including my high Blood pressure. A skilled specialist, you did this without “throwing more drugs at it” as was the inclination of our prior family doc. I am grateful you are not “your dad’s run of the mill, bone-crunching chiropractor”. I am also grateful you are as committed to affordably helping people address their health issues as you are and not doing what you do just to generate a fee. If I did not repeatedly experience the effectiveness of your non-invasive treatments I wouldn’t believe they work.

After some conversation and an exam of 2 knowing “pokes”, you identified my problem.  It was clear that some lifestyle changes were also going to be necessary. However, repeatedly checking sugar levels, taking insulin shots, amputations, higher heath care expenses, more costly insurance, etc, are also lifestyle changes.

Also, as a Christian I am convicted by the exhortation in 1 Corinthians 6:19, “that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.”

I was a patient willing to follow instruction! It took a series of NUCCA adjustments and other treatments, a bunch of herbal/food supplements and some dietary changes over a period of 4-5 months or so, but I am diabetes free. My sugar is consistently in the high 90s. I am so grateful for your help and knowledge.

I can’t even begin to imagine how many people have been condemned to life as a “diabetic”, because they didn’t seek out help that might have cured them. Thank you again for all you have done for me and my family.
Sincerely, Bob Gaudry, September, 2012.
