What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a healing science – and art – that focuses on the function and integrity of the nervous system, which is central to a healthy body and spine. Because the nervous system controls every cell, tissue and organ in the body and allows us to adapt to the world around us, ensuring that it is functioning well, is essential to overall health. Chiropractors are trained to find and correct areas of the spine and nervous system that are stressed or distorted using what are called “adjustments”. Over time, chiropractic adjustments help your body return to a state of improved health and more optimum function.

Many people assume that chiropractic care is only for the treatment of back pain or other specific physical or joint complaints. However, many of our patients who come in with a specific complaint also experience other positive effects from chiropractic care such as better sleep, reduced stress and increased immune function. Whether you’re a week old or nearing your 100th birthday, chiropractic care can help you to enjoy improved health and vitality.

Our Technique - Torque Release

Whether you decide to visit as a result of pain, a chronic health issue, or simply for health and well-being, chiropractic adjustments can help your body tune in to its own natural rhythms and the unique demands of your life.

Our doctors use Torque Release Technique as the primary method of adjustment.  The spinal cord is much like a guitar string in that it is anchored at the top and bottom of the spine.  If that string has proper tone, or tension, it plays the perfect notes and the nervous system operates in harmony with the body and the world around it.  This allows the body to play in tune and express health and vitality.

The Torque Release method detects and corrects nervous system tension between the spinal cord and the spine. Torque Release is an instrument-based technique whereby adjustments are done using an instrument called an Integrator rather than by hand.

When the body is subjected to an overload of physical, chemical or emotional stressors the attachments between the spinal cord and the spine can develop abnormal tension or torsion.  Torque Release technique finds these areas of tension in the spinal cord and corrects them. Plus, the benefits continue when a patient gets off the table, and the body continues to heal as the spinal cord returns to a more optimal degree of tone and tension, bringing the body into better balance.
