What is Chiropractic??

Chiropractic is a natural healing art that release subluxations of the spine to promote healthy flow of the body's nervous system. Your brain is the master control center of your body. It communicates to your body through the spinal cord and then through nerves. The spinal cord passes inside the vertebraes located in the back. If a vertebrae becomes subluxated (misaligned), it would cause a decrease of nerve impulse flow which, causes a dis-ease in the body. Chiropractors are trained to relieve these subluxations just as your dentist is trained in repairing and preventing cavities of the teeth. Relieving subluxations helps to promote healthy joint mobility, decrease fixations which causes osteoarthritic changes, and increase nervous system flow. Keep in mind the weight of a feather or dime could completely stop or shut off the function of a nerve. This is the POWER OF CHIROPRACTIC.  I always tell patients,  "YOU AIN'T FINE TILL YOUR SPINE IS IN LINE!"

What is Acupuncture???
Acupuncture is an ancient form of oriental medicine formed over 2000 years ago in China  that balances energy flow in the body  to help alleviate pain and suffering.  Acupuncturist stimulate  channels of energy which flows through body called Meridians by utilizing acupuncture needles, acupressure, moxibustion (a form of herbal heat), laser, and  or a needless instrument called a Teishin  to stimulate particular points on the meridians.  

The question has always been asked does a acupuncture treatment hurts?  Acupuncture needling can have different affects on some people.  Some feel only the insertion of the small needle and others don’t feel anything at all upon inserting the needle.   Upon insertion of the needle, some people feel a tingling sensation as “Qi” (energy) began to flow.  Usually there are no side effects from an acupuncture treatment.  Forms of acupuncture treatment ranges from Korean Hand Acupuncture, Auriculotherapy, Gua Sha , and Medical Acupuncture.  Medical  acupuncture is a branch of acupuncture which promotes healing and well-being, prevention of illness,  and the treatment of various illness and diseases.
