About Us

Our staff pursues a high level of continuing education and professional development that enables us to be aware and competent in the latest practices and therapies in the field.

All of us at Natural Care Chiropractic practice with the same purpose in our minds and hearts: We want to re-frame the definition of health. Each staff person has learned a unique approach to delivering health and wellness to move patients from where they are into a greater healthful existence.

 

Our vehicle is everything from Personalized Clinical Nutrition, Acupuncture, Manual Techniques including Myofascial Release Technique (MFR), Lymphatic Drainage, and structural specializations such as Atlas Orthogonal, Osteopathic Cranial Manipulation, and SOT techniques.

Why Chiropractic Care?

Most issues are structural in nature or result from a noxious insult such as toxins from the environment or food supply or disruption in one's biome or immunity caused by a nutritional deficiency, not a drug deficiency.

 

The nervous system is designed to self-correct and optimally function unimpeded when allowed to flow. For example, one of the latest trends we observe in our patients with chronic headaches is the constellation of cranial distortions.

 

These distortions may result from prior head trauma or TMJ/TMD-related problems, upper cervical subluxation, and blocked lymphatic channels all the way into the pelvic outlet. This may cause increased pressure in the head when the weather changes or the monthly cycle hits.

 

Our treatment for migraine sufferers (or any issue) starts with a holistic evaluation. From there, we determine if there is a mineral deficiency, a bug within the lymphatic system, or a structural issue, e.g., cranial bone displacement or spinal segment issue.

By addressing lymphatic system structural issues, such as correcting atlas displacement and releasing the cranial bones, along with nutritional help, we aim to remove the impedance to the lymphatic system. With this method, we have successfully treated patients who suffer from frequent chronic migraines.

 

Sometimes, we find a need for a TMJ consult, rehab for core strengthening, or a neurological evaluation. In this case, we refer our patients to practitioners we work closely with. We then remain in close contact and work alongside the practitioner while our patient is treated.

 

Chiropractic care is one of the most cost-effective treatment protocols for structural issues. It is far easier and less expensive to treat spinal issues and muscular/tendon or ligament disorders or trauma conservatively without surgical intervention or the masking effect of medications.

 

When you consider the length of time needed for recovery from a surgical procedure, including rehabilitation and purging the body of the effects of anesthesia, future issues resulting from fascial disruption due to fibrosis or scar tissue formation, the more conservative approach of manual therapies, and spinal manipulation

seems far more favorable and a more rapid recovery.
