Chiropractic is a form of healthcare that focuses on the role that the nervous system and spinal motion plays in sustaining health. Its primary objective is the removal of any interference to the nervous system, and normal healthy function. The nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves, including all of the nerves leading into every system, organ, tissue and cell of your body. Optimal nervous system function is of vital importance as it monitors your changing needs and controls and coordinates responses necessary for proper adaptation, learning and development.
Quite simply, chiropractic care involves the detecting and analyzing of physical interference to the nervous system, and the reduction of interference to the nervous system through the application of specific spinal adjustments. By progressively freeing your nervous system of interference it allows you to more clearly and accurately perceive your changing needs. As a result, it restores your healing capabilities for increased energetic function and vitality.
The doctors use a variety of traditional and gentle based techniques. We mainly use a gentle based technique called Torque Release Technique. We also utilize a number of other techniques which are appropriate for infants, children, seniors and pregnant moms. Whichever the method, all techniques will be discussed with practice members prior to their commencement of care.
TRT is considered non-manipulative: the emphasis is in communicating new corrective information through gentle touch or a light thrust by a hand held instrument. After each adjustment, the body is given time to process the adjustment. The ripple effect continues long after you get off the table.
The primary intent of this work is to progressively reduce blockages and tension in the entire spinal system, to release trapped unresolved patterns in the body/mind, and to facilitate reintegration of the nervous system, allowing a greater expression of one’s healing and performance capabilities.
After an adjustment you may experience a feeling of deepening peace and relaxation. This relaxed feeling may last for the rest of the day or the week and may lead to deep refreshing sleep.
Others may find that the problems that they came to the chiropractor for have begun to lessen and there are some people who feel no difference after an adjustment. That does not necessarily mean that they are not benefiting from their adjustments, it just means that they’re not feeling any external reaction.
A small minority may feel discomfort or muscle soreness, or some other uncomfortable feeling; their body is letting them know that it is being challenged to change.
As you continue your chiropractic care and your spine and nervous system continue to release deep-seated stresses as part of your healing process, you may begin to notice:
Ultimately you may spontaneously change your eating habits, feel an increased desire to exercise, go for walks or become more sensitive to your work and leisure.
