Ease, But Not Easy

When our bodies are in a state of ease, there is optimal function, healing, and cell repair. As you know, this is all controlled by our brain and nerve system. It means there is a healthy response to any stress around us – physical, chemical and/or emotional. If you gardened for 8 hours, and you rarely spend time doing that activity, would you be surprised to be sore the next day or two? You would be sore from inflammation, which is a healthy response as tissues are repaired. Would it surprise you to have a headache that lasted a few hours after you had an argument with your spouse or children? You would expect to feel bloated and heavy after eating a meal full of carbohydrates. We heal fully and there are no lasting effects when we are in a state of ease.

Dis-ease, or ‘lack of ease’, is when there is less than normal healing and cell repair. When subluxation occurs, it limits the amount of body to brain connection, and as you know, decreases function, healing and cell repair. When dis-ease begins, there are few, if any, symptoms to signal to you that a problem is occurring. Can you have tooth decay, cancer, joint degeneration, diabetes or blood vessel damage without symptoms or pain? We all know someone diagnosed with cancer, who didn’t live very long after they were diagnosed. Screening tests for cancer and other diseases only exist because we can’t rely on symptoms to tell us how well we’re functioning. Why do children or adults with no symptoms get adjusted? To make sure they’re at EASE!

“You treat a disease…you win…you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you’ll win, no matter what the outcome.” ~ Robin Williams as Patch Adams

disease is a “disorder of structure or function, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury.” This is where much of western medicine has invested time, energy and resources. When a specific set of symptoms or signals can be classified, guidelines can be followed to treat that disease. Patients are given something from the outside, with the belief that it is required for any healing to occur. Disease treatment can be life-saving, but it never creates a higher level of healing and function.

  • It’s very interesting going in for an appointment after having some pain and the doctor notices where the pain is without saying it. Dr. Neil knows his patients and they are very flexible with appointments.

  • Sharing from my personal experience- I started a few months ago and I was having an annoying pain in my left shoulder and neck area prior starting, Dr. Neil helped me out a lot with that and I am really feeling relaxed and relieved from that annoying pain. My sleep schedule got improved. I highly recommend this place & Dr. Neil.

  • Really impressed with the quality of care my children are receiving. They are comfortable coming here & their sleep issues have improved. I also have issues with my wrist and hands & they kindly looked at my issue and gave me a quick adjustment free of charge.

  • The team at Ancaster Family Chiropractic are amazing. I've been seeing Dr. Neil for quite a few years now and am so glad I have. Dr. Neil's treatment plan has not only given me greater mobility I very rarely even get sick. I would highly recommend Dr. Neil if you're looking for a way to improve your health. Give Deb a call and make an appointment, you won't regret it. If you want to feel healthier this is the place to go.

  • I don't think I ever actually understood what a chiropractor was supposed to do before coming here. I've only just starting coming here, but I'm already noticing a difference! Their initial assessment was so incredibly informative, and every visit since then has only helped me understand my body better.

  • I've been in Dr Neil's care for a little over a year now. I was sent to him by a referral, a family that had been going to him for years, with nothing but good things to say and much success!I had a terrible fall, which caused me unbearable coccyx pain. Needless to say, once I had a few xrays, we found many problems with my spine. Dr Neil has tackled each of my issues with care, and in priority. I can't believe the difference over the year. I am continuing my journey for better spine/back health, with full confidence and trust in Dr. Neil!

  • I started the chiropractic here with severe pain in my neck and low back area at this center. Now after 4 months of doing weekly adjustments with Dr. Neil, I can observe the great improvement in my body posture and my neck movement. and best part is that I started my routine workout that last time I urged to stop due to my neck pain. I'm so thankful to get to know Dr. Neil and his great and helpful team.i will continue having my regular adjustments so that I will feel as healthy and fit as I can be for the rest of my life!thank you Ancaster Family!

Dr. Neil, Deb and Sue are passionate about what they do and it is apparent in their patient care. I am eternally grateful to my friend that referred me.

  • Honestly, this was the first chiropractor I've been to that insisted on xrays before treatment. And wow, I was glad I had them done, the proof was in the pudding, I myself could see my misalignment. Dr Neil is so absolutely friendly and patient, I walked in there in so much pain and I feel so much better. I referred my partner to the clinic as well, as they've gained my trust
