What To Expect
read moreOur goal is to give you the help and relief you are looking for. In order to do that, we'll need some basic information that you will provide on the intake form and then you'll get to visit with Dr. Adams personally. This initial consultation will help Dr. Adams understand your problem and see if chiropractic is the right choice for you. The doctor will then examine you thoroughly with a special emphasis on the spine and how it relates to the other functions of your body. A heat reading instrument will be glided up and down your spine to detect temperature imbalances that might indicate a spinal problem or subluxation.
read moreI've never been a skeptic. Really, its true. I've always believed that the body has the ability to heal itself. I guess I was a rebel of sorts too-just had to do things my way. I can remember deciding to become a chiropractor when I was a junior in high school. Most people thought I was nuts! Squander away a promising education? No, not at all. I had always wanted to help people and I had an uncanny knack for grasping more natural means to do so. I was also inspired by our family chiropractor too.

The longer you wait the more unseen damage there is and the longer it seems to take to recover. Because the nerves to the arms and hands exit the spine through the injured area of the neck, numbness and tingling are common. Even lower back pain can result directly from the trauma, or as a reaction to the loss of proper spinal curves. Whether you've been in an accident, stressed at work, or over-exerted yourself in the garden, your body is constantly adapting to the environment.
read moreThe nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The pain can be a sign these interlocking "fingers" aren't moving right. The discs between spinal bones can be involved, too. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves. Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can ease and better stability can return.

However, there are four stages in which having an optimally working nervous system can help both mother and child. Chiropractic care prepares the body to be as strong, supple and balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy. Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy appeals to mothers who seek a natural approach to better health. Many rely on chiropractic care to help assure optimum biomechanics of the hips and spine in the hopes of reducing the need for interventions during the birth process.

So are slips and falls. Even being born! Today's environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, pollen and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system and muscle tone. When your body reacts by "tripping a circuit breaker" and causing subluxation, chiropractic care may help.
read moreThat's just one of many things your neck must do. Your neck and shoulders work hard. Even the smallest deviation in the relationships of the seven bones of your cervical spine (neck) can cause pain and reduced head and neck mobility. Generally, we see two types of neck pain cases. Minor neck and shoulder pain involve sensations of discomfort, stiffness or soreness. If these symptoms last for more than a day or so, occur frequently or were preceded by an accident or some type of injury, we consider it major.
