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 a proud client of Dr. Neil and the support team since 2016 and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I tried other chiropracters previously and the experience at Ancaster Family Chiropractic is far superior than any other. The atmosphere is positive, friendly and professional. The set up is great and the organization/structure just makes sense. I love having a key fob...makes me feel important! They actually teach about chiropractic care for a greater understanding of same. The name is fitting as you feel like part of the family. Thanks for everything you do.

They are very friendly and accommodating and truly make you feel like part of their Chiropractic family. Our visits have helped keep our immune systems strong and help our bodies heal and stay healthy. Dr. Neil and his team are fantastic with my boys. They fondly call him Dr. Clickers.

  • I have been a patient with Dr Neil for about 2 years now and have definitely noticed an overall improvement in my well being and good health feeling since starting with the adjustments. I can also attribute a successful and remarkable quick recovery from 2 Total Knee Replacement surgeries to having good chiropractic care supporting good health healing! Dr. Neil is not only a caring friendly professional, he is also highly experienced and I wish to recommend him to anyone that needs a boost to daily health.

  • I promised a haiku to show my appreciation, so here it is!

    Dr. Neil is great
    I have never felt better
    Go see him today

    In all honesty, Dr. Neil has been a huge help getting rid of my headaches and chronic sickness - issues that no medication in the world could help. He’s a class act and treats his clients like a true professional. If you’re dealing with any sort of health issues, I would recommend booking an appointment with him.

    Thank you Dr. Neil and your team (Deb & Sue are fantastic!) for your commitment to my health and your welcoming environment. I look forward to my appointments!

  • Dr Brown is efficient, empathetic and excellent at what he does, which is helping your body heal itself! The investment that he, and his supportive team of Deb and Sue, make towards your long term care plan is by far the most thorough and well thought out that I have ever experienced. I highly recommend their services for the whole family.
