5 ‘Must Knows’ About Chiropractic

1.  Your body has the inborn ability to heal and repair.

When there is interference, health expression is limited because nerve communication is limited.  Your brain controls function, healing and coordinates cell replacement.  Health and adaptation to your environment is expressed through your nerve system including your: brain, brain stem, spinal cord, spinal nerves and peripheral nerves.

2.  We measure the health of your spine and nerve system by the alignment, function and damage we see on assessment

Since your spine is designed to protect your spinal cord and nerves, its health is essential for the health of your nerves.  Less than 10% of your nerves have the ability to sense pain, so how you feel only tells us a little bit about your health.  Damage can occur long before symptoms begin.

3.  Subluxation interferes with brain to body nerve connection

Subluxation literally means ‘less than normal light/energy’.  When your spine is misaligned, moving poorly and/or damaged, your nerves don’t work correctly.  As a result, your brain can’t talk to your body properly and you lose normal function, healing and cell replacement.  This limits the expression of life and health.

4.  Chiropractic adjustments are the only thing that corrects subluxation

Our job is to assess your spine and nerve health thoroughly for any areas of subluxation.  We will then know how many adjustments you will need to correct the problem areas, what home stretches to prescribe and what corrective exercises may be required.

5.  You and your body control the speed of recovery

Healing takes time, and this assessment will tell us how long the problems have been there, and how long they will take to heal.  Not surprisingly, when there is more damage, the healing process takes longer.  That’s the reason we check and adjust many newborns, babies, toddlers and children.  It is much easier to correct subluxations early, and keep children healthy, rather than trying to fix damage after it’s occurred.

  • I have been suffering with neck and back pain and lack of mobility since my early teens and I am now 27, but I have progressively had a harder time coping with it since I started working in Healthcare in 2019. It had gotten to the point where all I could think about was finding a different job throughout my shift because I wasn't sure how much longer I could handle it. I decided to give Chiropractic Medicine a try and I am so thankful I did! I have been going to Ancaster Family Chiropractic since July 2021 and I have experienced a significant improvement with reduced severity and frequency of pain, better range of motion in my neck and back, and I rarely have to take OTC pain medication which is something I was relying on daily beforehand. I am not even halfway through my treatment plan and I can't wait to continue experiencing improvement in my quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Neil, Sue and Deb!

  • Dr. Neil and the staff Deb and Sue were very helpful with dealing with my issues. I went in with a lower back pain and has been healing pretty well. I have noticed the adjustments and home exercise not only helped with the pain but also helped with my digestion issues such as bloating. They were very accommodating whenever I needed a change in visits.Overall a great place to get yourself healed.

  • Their philosophy of health and well being is encouraging, optimistic and realistic. I appreciate the idea of leading a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness rather than simply treating the symptoms of ailments. Also, there are times unexpected benefits to chiropractic care. I wholeheartedly recommend Ancaster Family Chiropractic.
