When you think of chiropractic care, you probably imagine your bones being in the wrong place. It might surprise you to find out that Dr. Kate and Dr. James are actually working toward improving your body’s neurology!
Improving the Brain-body Connection
Your brain communicates through the nerves to every cell, organ and tissue in the body. When there’s tension or something is misaligned, that transmission through the nerves is interfered with. Have you ever laid on your arm and your hand went numb? The pressure of laying on your arm decreases the information the nerve carries, which affects how your hand can function. That can happen to any nerve in the body if there’s pressure on it. Adjusting the bones of your spine removes pressure from nerves and allows each part of your body to function at its best, just like moving so that you are not laying on your arm lets your hand regain its proper function!
Dr. James and Dr. Kate make sure that all the nerves in your body are interference-free so that you can function at your best.
Affecting Your Physical and Mental Well-being
These interferences with your nerves, or misalignments, are more than just physical. Sure, falling off your bike might cause something to move out of place. But most often, we see people coming in with problems that are mental in origin. For example, you might be driving in traffic and feeling frustrated and start to tighten your shoulder muscles. This pain is every bit as real as that bike accident, but it was a result of a mental response to a situation. It still impacts your body just as much.
There are numerous benefits to chiropractic care. Studies show that chiropractic can:
- Decrease hospital visit frequency and duration
- Reduce medical interventions
- Decrease the amount of pharmaceuticals taken
- Diminish stress
- Help you sleep better
- Improve athletic performance
- Strengthen your immune system
Combining the Philosophy, Art and Science of Chiropractic
At Expression Chiropractic, Dr. Kate and Dr. James use a unique approach to care called Bio-Geometric Integration, or BGI. It works with your body’s natural geometry to guide your adjustments. When a part of your body is misaligned, it has a ripple effect on every other part. We take a holistic look to understand how you’re affected, from head to toe. For each person we use the inherent geometry and naturally occurring patterns of your body to guide what gets adjusted. We blend together a combination of adjusting methods to tailor our approach for what your body needs to correct the misalignment. The approaches we utilize are:
- Bio-geometric Integration (BGI)
- Activator ®
- Drop table
- Extremity Adjusting
- Full spine adjusting
- Light touch
- Upper cervical
- Webster (for Adjusting in Pregnancy)
We’ll explain what your adjustment feels like before beginning, making sure you know exactly what to expect. If you prefer one approach over another, we can tailor to your needs, desires and comfort level.
