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.

  • 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.

  • Dr. Neil and the admin staff have been a pleasure to deal with. I was referred to Ancaster Family chiro by a family member when I was dealing with severe back pain to the point that I couldn’t stand up straight. After the first adjustment I was shocked by the difference I could feel right away. As someone without a health benefit plan, Dr Neil was very accommodating in finding an affordable plan for me. I have been a client now for almost 6 months and can honestly say that I feel the biggest difference. Do yourself a favour and try these folks out, you’ll thank yourself later!

  • 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.
