The health of your spine and its joints is regulated by motion. Injuries and repetitive stresses cause inflammation and scar tissue to build up, decreasing this motion. Spinal and Extremity adjustments break up this inflammation and scar tissue, allowing the spine and its joints to return to good health.
The nervous system controls every single function of the body. There are over 12 miles of nerves in the human body, and only 10 percent of those nerves perceive pain.
Posture Analysis is a way to look at the nervous system and see where the problems of nerve function are occurring. Posture Analysis is done throughout the course of care. Treatment of postural and nervous system function problems is done on each visit.
Postural Treatment is a course of care that incorporates Mirror Image Adjusting and Mirror Image Physiotherapy. These treatments over time create a more natural posture, relieving the tension and stresses put on the nervous system through work, stress, and physical traumas. The technique that we use is similar to a chiropractic technique called Chiropractic Biophysics.
