Chiropractic is a drug-free, physiologically compatible health care that allows the body to heal itself by helping the nervous system to function better. When nerve interference is removed with gentle chiropractic adjustments, healthy cell metabolism, organ function, and mental and physical well-being are restored. According to the research, that means more energy, better movement, and a stronger immune system. More and more families are choosing chiropractic because no one is ever too young or too old to obtain a healthy nervous system for life.
The legacy we leave depends on the health of our children. Our spines and nervous systems are the number one neglected system in healthcare. Today, more and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children for pediatric development. Any informed healthcare provider knows that many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth. Even so called “natural” birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health conditions. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress.

Before and After postural spinal imaging results are an important component of realizing the success or furthering of our focused efforts on the intervertebral discs to realign the structure of the spine towards optimal position. Our doctors recognize that as your spine is corrected, proper changes of spinal position must be evident. Naturally, our Gonstead doctors only use the specific adjustment to achieve these changes. Your initial postural spinal images will let us confirm and show you if there are deficiencies in your spinal structure. If indicated, our doctors will recommend an appropriate corrective program comprised of a carefully planned series of Gonstead adjustments. The ultimate goal is to return the spine to its normal structural alignment, which in turn will also result in intervertebral disc healing, reduced muscular tension, improved balance of nerve flow, inhibition of early degenerative joint disease and a noticeable improvement in optimal nervous system function and overall performance.
