Our mission is to educate and adjust as many families as possible toward optimal health through natural, corrective Chiropractic care. This web site is an effort to clarify our procedures and answer some questions you may have about our office.

Corrective Chiropractic care addresses the total body regardless of symptoms or pain. While pain is an indicator of a problem, a nervous system problem may be present without a pain response. Pain is generally the last symptom to be revealed and the first to go away. Most conditions take 6 to 12 months to correct, while pain and discomfort generally dissipates within 6 weeks. Some chronic cases may require supportive care for many years.

Whiplash
Automobile Accidents are the leading cause of Whiplash. Very often, whiplash victims are told that their soreness and stiffness, along with any other symptoms, will go away with time. And too often, just the opposite happens!


Baby Talk is Talking Chiropractic
In a recent issue of Baby Talk magazine, an article entitled, "It's Only Natural", discussed a recent gathering of 300 pediatricians in Tucson, Arizona. The speakers included, Stephen Straus, M.D., head of the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Andrew Weil, M.D., director of the program in integrative medicine at the
University of Arizona College of Medicine. The article stated that pediatricians are becoming aware that patients' parents are less and less eager to turn to drugs when treating childrens' illnesses. The pediatricians were looking at options for "times, such as with colic or recurrent ear infection, when standard treatments don't hold all the answers". This is an excerpt on the portion of the article dealing with chiropractic and children's health:

"How does it work?" "Chiropractors trace many of the body's health problems to misalignments of the spinal column, which press on the nerves leading to various parts of the body. But, chiropractors who work with infants don't apply the same force that's used with adults..."



Sinusitis-Bugs Up Your Nose?
Did you know that we all have what's called "normal flora" up our noses? The truth is some kinds of bacteria ("normal flora") live out their lives in our sinus cavities. They can't really bother us-except when certain unhealthy conditions exist in the sinuses that allow bacteria to grow easily and quickly.


Auto Accident Back Pain Years Later
With current legislation mandating the use of seat belts, an increased number of neck and back injuries have been reported when seat belts are used. While these injuries may be less significant than in unrestricted accidents, health care providers must address these potentially lifelong problems and not dismiss them as merely "Whiplash". Many cases of tension headache and Cervical Migraine may be the result of a neck injury that may have been forgotten or simply dismissed as trivial by the patient-according to a study published in Spine. In the article, Dr. MacNab reviewed 266 cases and found at least 45% continued to have symptoms 2 years following the settlement of court actions. Most people that are involved in "minor" rear-end collisions do not realize the potential for injury to the spine. If pain does not immediately ensue, the incident may be forgotten.
