“There’s Something I Forgot to Tell You…”

I Forgot to Tell YouI forgot to tell you

After a week or two of care a new patient will often pull us aside.  I forgot to tell you about how much better my…

They go on to describe some aspect of their health that has improved. Only thing, it’s not what prompted them to originally see us for care.

This happens surprisingly often.

They didn’t mention their acid reflux, indigestion or some other condition during our initial visit. That’s understandable. Many people think of chiropractic as something that only helps spinal conditions.

Whole Body Health

Those who see chiropractic as only a treatment for headaches and back pain overlook something more significant. Namely the role that chiropractic may play in whole body health. Here’s how:

1. Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue and organ.
2. The nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord and all your nerves.
3. The most important parts of your nervous system are protected by bone.
4. The moving segments of your spinal column are vulnerable to misalignment.
5. Aberrant spinal biomechanics can affect nervous system communications.
6. Impaired nerve messages can produce problems peripheral to the spine.
7. As nervous system interferences are reduced, symptoms often resolve.

Important Questions

When is a stomach problem a stomach problem? And when is a stomach problem actually a nerve communication problem between the brain and stomach?

It’s the brain that controls your stomach. Just as it controls your lungs, your knees and every other function of your body. It controls and regulates every bodily function via nerve messages sent over the spinal cord. Interference from the moving bones protecting these nerves could show up as a stomach problem. But the real problem is along the spinal column. Correct the spinal problem and the stomach problem often resolves.

Treatment for….

Does that make chiropractic a treatment for stomach problems? Of course not. The intent of chiropractic care is to restore proper function to a compromised nervous system. Instead of ‘side effects’ the happy result is ‘positive effects’ that many patients notice as their care progresses.

    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!

He is a big part of our health maintenance and we're grateful to have found him.

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.
