We use scientific, objective testing in our analysis and recommendations, and we see objective results. We offer blood testing, toxic and elemental hair testing, food allergy testing and more. We get great results because we test and we use objective testing methods.
Understand that we do not have a cure for your problem whether it is a rash, MS, diabetes or cancer. Our goal is to get you healthier. Progress is the key, and there should be some definite, objective improvement within about 2 months if what we are doing and recommend is going to work. Do you have 2 months? If you can give us 2 months and you really work and follow the doctors’ recommendation, it is highly unusual not to see improvement. Then, the goal is to keep you improving on a consistent basis. Sometimes a 2-3% improvement in 2 months could the best that we can hope for but if you continue to improve 2-3% every 2 months for the next 2-3 years, where will you be?
Every person is different. The exam and discussion with the doctor determine what if any tests may be needed.
If you do the testing through our office, it usually takes no more than two weeks to get all of the test results back and report of findings, scheduled.
Of course! You may get your blood work done through another doctor. However, it would be prudent for you to check your pricing thoroughly. It may be cheaper to order blood through our cooperative where the are greatly reduced rates.
Absolutely. Compared to other medical treatments, which include medication and surgery, chiropractic is by far the safest. It is estimated that 140,000 people in the USA die each year from drug-related reactions and nearly 100,000 people die as a result of medical errors. Insurance companies who evaluate the risks of all professions, and charge a premium based on the risk the profession poses, rate chiropractors by far as the lowest insurance premium of all health care providers. Even though thousands of chiropractic adjustments are made each year, only a few complaints are registered.
Subluxation refers to a spinal bone (vertebra) that is not in its right position or not moving in its normal range of motion. Misaligned vertebra are irritating nerves and blood vessels, which in turn affects the way your body communicates with your spine. Subluxations are the cause of many pains and dysfunctions in muscles and organs. The body's natural ability to heal itself is greatly improved with the subluxation removed.
Most chiropractic adjustments are not only virtually painless, and actually make you feel great! In cases of a recent injury, inflamed tissue may react to adjustments and cause some discomfort. Application of ice after treatment may soothe any irritation.
There is no evidence to suggest that manipulation of the spine or other chiropractic care can lead to arthritis. On the contrary, chiropractors often care for people with arthritis by maintaining joint health. Motion is life when it comes to joint health.
There is no age excluded from chiropractic care. Even babies can have subluxations, due to the rigors of birth. In Denmark, for example, Chiropractic Doctors are part of the birthing team. Children's subluxations should be treated early as they interfere with nerves that control developing muscles and organs of the body consist of cartilage growth centers that the bone grows. Abnormal stresses on a rapidly developing spine and other bones and joints can cause them to develop abnormally. Your chiropractor can detect these problems while they are easy to correct.
Chiropractors are part of a network of health-care professionals. Like other doctors, they will make referrals for patients when necessary. Chiropractors are trained to recognize risk factors and signs of disease that are outside their scope of treatment and to refer to additional providers who should be part of the care team going forward.
