Chiropractic Care

3d model of a spineYour body’s nervous system has an essential function—to transmit messages from the brain to the rest of the body. It uses the spinal cord to communicate, making sure the messages go to where they’re needed in the body, at the right time. When there is a problem in the spine, it affects your nervous system’s ability to operate at 100%.

Our goal is to identify and correct these problems. By removing any disruptions to the nervous system, we increase your body’s energy flow and improve your overall health.

Healthy Spinal Curves

A subluxation (disruption in the nervous system) or postural shift may begin as early as the day you’re born. Without chiropractic care, there are ever-increasing amounts of stress your body may not handle, which may lead to changes in the spine.

The normal, healthy curves of the spine are designed to resist the compressive forces of stress. If the proper curves aren’t present, however, the nervous system cannot function at its highest level. That’s where corrective chiropractic care can make a difference.

Chiropractic Biophysics® (CBP®)—A Game Changer

Dr. Nicholas seeks to restore your health with chiropractic care and postural rehabilitation. Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) is one of the most evidence-based methods of corrective care. Starting with a posture screen, he can see exactly where your body is in space, and pinpoint where the weight of the body is concentrated, where specific stresses are, and why they occurred.

Following your screening, we will often take X-rays. They provide a way to see what that stress has done internally at the bone level, and assess for any nerve conduction issues or blockages. Dr. Nicholas can then translate those stresses to identify problems you might have, such as digestive issues or sinus problems, and be proactive in creating your unique care plan.

Dr. Nicholas uses the Denneroll Table System for CBP traction correction. It uses a system of pulleys, weights, and pillows to correct any type of misalignment. He also uses the table for decompression therapy.

Other techniques we may use include Diversified, which is a combination of the “best of the best” chiropractic techniques, and the Impulse IQ® Adjusting Instrument. What makes this tool different is the smart chip inside.

Joints should be nice and springy, and bounce back when touched. If the joint is under tension, restricted, or subluxated, it will be more rigid, and not as springy. The IQ impulse senses the tension, and applies impulse adjustments to that joint. Once the joint releases, the Impulse Adjusting Instrument senses it, and makes a sound to let Dr. Nicholas know that the joint has been released.

In addition to your adjustments, your plan may include postural rehabilitation using stress weights. The goal is to reverse the spinal curves and increase overall movement in the spine. Physiotherapy, in the form of ultrasound or electric muscle stimulation, may also be used. Combined, all these elements add up to fantastic healing.
