Spokane Chiropractor Treatments - Subluxation Defined
I use various chiropractic techniques to help your back, neck, and entire nervous system. These include: chiropractic adjustment by hand, arthrostim impulse adjustments, activator adjustments, torque release integrator adjustments, and vibracussor therapy. The objective of all of these techniques is to reduce and eliminate chiropractic subluxation in the body. A chiropractic subluxation is a situation when a bone in the spine, also known as a vertebra, loses it's inherent vibratory oscillation. When this happens the receptors on the spine no longer communicate coherently with the brain. This means the nervous system does not receive the input it needs to comprehend the body's environment in a way that allows the nervous system to adapt, in the most constructive manner, to whatever stresses the environment presents at that moment. The result is that the innate healing wisdom of the body is compromised. When a subluxation remains uncorrected long enough symptoms and named conditions will present. When a subluxation is corrected, then the innate healing wisdom can return and give the body a chance to heal itself. Chiropractic adjustments correct subluxations.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy stimulates ATP production which is necessary for all healing body functions. It also stimulates cellular membrane activity. The cellular membrane is the brain of the cell. It uses the laser energy to normalize cell activity which may decrease pain and inflammation, and increase range of motion. Our cold lasers are state of the art and deemed safe by the FDA. Cold laser therapy is part of our whole body wellness approach to chiropractic treatment.
Our bodies need fuel to work efficiently. The degree of health we have is largely dependent on the quality of fuel we put into our bodies. Bad fuel = bad performance. That is only part of the nutrition story, though. A person's allergies and sensitivities may mean a healthy food is bad for a person. The result is nutritional deficiency, or excess, can cause almost any health issue. We offer nutrition counseling to help you understand what is "good nutrition" for you.
