The ability to achieve true health begins with a balanced foundation or posture. Two areas of the body have the most profound impact on posture; they are the structures of the head and neck and the structures of the feet.
When dealing with the head and neck our doctors perform a specific upper cervical adjusting technique that is gentle, non-invasive, and has full body effects. To provide the highest quality chiropractic care our practice utilizes advanced chiropractic assessment procedures such as digital x-ray and computerized surface electromyography. The doctors focus on the upper neck by employing a specialized procedure developed by NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association). The NUCCA procedure involves the careful examination of the patient and subsequent gentle correction of the upper neck, allowing for a re-balancing of the body.
Taking care of the foot and gait can be a crucial component of balanced posture. Our certified pedorthist Shannon Gordon will carefully evaluate your gait (the way you walk) and examine the balance and integrity of your foot. At this point a determination is made as to weather or not a custom orthotic is necessary for you.
When the head and neck are balanced and the feet have a healthy relationship with the ground you will be well on your way to optimal health. You will likely find that you have much less body ache when you have the ability to resist the forces of gravity in a healthy balanced way. Although most people begin to feel great improvement from these two specialized yet simple procedures, the path to wellness does not stop here. Once body Balance has been achieved we must turn our attention to the bodies Thought, Fuel and Function.
