Focused on Relief and Wellness

Chiropractic has been around for over a century, yet myths abound.

Its focus is on the integrity of your nervous system. It’s why so many enjoy the relief of spinal and non-spinal conditions.

The Science Behind Today’s Chiropractic

Your brain, spinal cord and all your nerves control every function of your body. Hinder this brain-body link and affected organs and tissues malfunction.

Spinal bones, misaligned due to stress or trauma, are common culprits. This can cause numbness, weakness or the under-performance of involved organs.

Or, spinal misalignment can stretch, chafe or irritated nerve tissue. This can also distort nerve messages between the body and your brain. The result? Hyperactive organ function, high blood pressure or even pain—but not always.

Drugs are often used to speed up or slow down bodily functions. Laxatives to speed up elimination. Antacids to slow down stomach acid production. Besides the side effects, drugs ignore any underlying neurological cause.

Indigestion may be a partial disconnect between your brain and stomach. It feels like a stomach problem. But it may be merely a communication problem. Chiropractic focuses on the integrity of your nervous system.

The Chiropractic Adjustment

towel-back-adjustmentA thorough exam locates areas of nervous system compromise. Then your chiropractor will know precisely where to adjust your spine.

Chiropractic adjustments are special. They require years of training and experience. Chiropractors know what it takes to coax misaligned vertebrae back into place.

Thankfully, chiropractic adjustments feel great. Otherwise, patients wouldn’t return for the visits needed to retrain their spine.

There are many ways to adjust the spine.

At Health Haven we use a full spine approach. We rely on techniques best suited to your problem, age and preference:

  • Diversified – First we identify areas of your spine malfunctioning. Then we’ll use our hands to apply a specific thrust to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
  • Activator Methods™ – This uses a small, spring-loaded adjusting instrument. It delivers a consistent, repeatable, low-force thrust. We use it with the elderly, infants or those who express a preference.
  • Thompson Terminal Point – This is a popular way to analyze and adjust. A special table reduces the energy needed to adjust your spine.
  • Webster Technique – This approach reduces sacral and SI joint dysfunction. Especially during pregnancy. The result is improved neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis.

We also rely on several proven adjunctive procedures. These help speed healing and provide ongoing support to your spine:

  • Low Level Laser – We use the Theralase® patented cool laser therapy. It helps relieve pain and reduce inflammation. This accelerates healing of numerous nerve, muscle and joint conditions. Acute and chronic problems respond well to the laser. Especially arthritis in hands, wrists, knees and ankles.
  • Custom Foot Orthotics – We get ours locally from Orthogenic. They create a 100% foam, custom carved orthotic. We often recommend them when we see gait and postural issues. They simply slip unnoticed into your shoes.
