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.

Closed Mouthed About Jaw Pain
TMJ disorder (or just "TMJ" or "TMD") is the name used for several conditions that affect the jaw (technical term for jaw: Temporo Mandibular Joint). Sufferers of TMJ may have difficulty opening and closing their mouths, especially when trying to speak and chew. TMJ can also cause clicking noises, muscle tightness, earaches and rushing or ringing in the ears, a feeling of the jaws grinding or grating, and pain. Headaches, shoulder, and neck pain can also be associated with this disorder and may be the first thing noticed before TMJ sets in. Muscle spasms, tenderness and swelling of the face and neck can also accompany TMJ.


Just Thinking About Headaches is Depressing
Talk about a downward spiral! Most people would agree that being in pain is upsetting. One type of pain, in particular, creates a mental felling of helplessness. That pain is headache pain. It's terribly difficult to determine which comes first, the headache or the distress. What's certain is, once the headache starts, the distress is sure to follow. This added stress frequently increases the pain that increases the stress, thus creating a vicious downward spiral, when your head hurts, it's hard just to think straight. Headaches that are frequent or last for days, sometimes with no relief, easily cause depression.


Doctor it only hurts when I Do This
The comical response is, "So don't do that!!!" If what makes "it" hurt is standing, sitting, or especially, breathing, we are in trouble. For back pain sufferers, all these things and many others are painful. Back pain sufferers are forced to change their lives when they are "down in the back". Favorite activities become memories and busy people can be stopped dead in their tracks by back pain.


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..."
