Chiropractic Care

Dr. Chris smilingDuring his 30-plus years of practice, Dr. Chris has seen a lot of patients, with many different conditions. While chiropractic may not restore optimum health to all, treatment can benefit everyone in some way. Health is a lifelong journey, and we’re here to help every step of the way.

What Is Chiropractic?

Dr. Chris uses the analogy of a three-legged stool to describe the triad of health. The three legs represent the structural, chemical and mental components of health. If there’s an imbalance on one side, it throws off the balance of the whole stool. In the body, this can show up as a systemic imbalance.

Spinal misalignments (subluxations) affect the normal function of your nervous system. Nerve interference negatively affects the signaling from your brain to your body and/or body back up to your brain. Over time this nerve interference causes a systemic breakdown or imbalance in your body, resulting in pain and loss of motion. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore normal spinal alignment allowing your body to heal itself from the inside out.

Taking a Whole Body Approach

At Life in Balance Wellness, we use a whole body approach to your care. While you may come in with one complaint, our focus is to ensure there are no contributing factors which can cause a recurrence.

For example, a patient may present with a lot of back and neck pain. During the consultation, we might discover sleep issues, excessive stress on the job or at home, and they’re 20 pounds overweight. All of these contribute to the initial problem.

Chiropractic care will help but may not address everything. We need to look at your lifestyle habits and identify where you could benefit from making adjustments. Then, we’ll create a care plan that will relieve your pain and help you reach your health goals.

Chiropractic Techniques and More

Before any adjustment, Dr. Chris explains exactly what he’s going to do. There are no surprises; you’ll know what’s going to happen. We want you to be calm and relaxed, which makes the adjustment easier and helps it stay in place longer.

Dr. Chris uses a light-force adjustment technique, which works well for all ages, infants to seniors. Light force technique is not painful and you won’t hear a lot of “cracking and popping” either. Dr Chris uses several manual techniques for those patients requiring a “deeper” adjustment.

Over the years, Dr. Chris has received additional training in functional health areas like thyroid conditions, adrenal health, and blood sugar imbalances. He has also been trained to conduct lab testing for specific areas.
