Every human being has just a handful of “requirements” that need to be met in order to stay alive.
We need to breathe
We need to eat
We need to move
We need to sleep
We need to excrete waste
Obviously, these all need to be done correctly, at the right time, and as well as possible. We need to breathe clean, fresh air. We need to eat nutritious foods that create the right fuel and replacement parts for our bodies. And so on.
One other requirement that ties all of this together is to have a functional nervous system. Your brain must be able to get signals to every area of your body, and your body also needs to send signals back to the brain about what needs to happen the next time around.
This connection between your brain to your body is the most important. It controls and coordinates all functions in your body. It allows for all growth and repair. Without this connection, you would not be alive.
Once again, it’s the quality of this connection that makes the biggest difference. If your brain is able to be in perfect communication with your body, all systems operate optimally. If there is a disturbance to this communication, your health will suffer relative to the severity of this blockage.
The most important place to check for this disturbance is in the spine. Your spine is one of the most complex structural units ever created. Twenty-four individual vertebrae have to align perfectly for your spine to be in balance, allowing the brain to communicate down through the spinal cord and out between each vertebra along a spinal nerve.
Any disturbance to the structure and function of your spine will cause dysfunction which can only lead to a state of dis-ease in the body. This may show up as aches or pains in the spine itself, or it may be digestive issues, headaches, and on and on. Your nervous system controls everything, so a disturbance to the nervous system can cause any known condition.
Your body contains what we call “Innate Intelligence”, the wisdom that enables living things to adapt and thrive. The expression of this intelligence is what keeps us alive, allows us to heal, and allows the creation of the next generation.
Your brain is constantly monitoring everything in your body. Your temperature, your hunger levels, your energy levels, your blood chemistry, your blood pressure, your breathing, and everything that keeps you alive. We also know that your brain invests a lot of it’s monitoring effort watching your spine. The more dysfunctions in your spine, the more “error signals” your brain has to deal with.
Research has shown that getting a chiropractic adjustment (removing the dysfunction in the spine) helps to quiet a great deal of these “error signals”, ending up with a brain that is able to run the rest of the body more efficiently, just like a computer with less background programs and viruses. When you work better through a healthier nervous system, everything is able to improve.
Chiropractic is simply the best strategy that we currently know to enable better nervous system connection and greater expression of life in your body.
Most importantly, Chiropractic consistently comes out ahead in study after study. Chiropractic is safer, less expensive, and provides faster relief than many conventional options. Contact us today to see how we can help you with whatever concern you may have.

Kids and Chiropractic
Children respond very well to chiropractic care. Above all, our techniques are safe and gentle, even for newborn infants. Obviously, kids have a spine and nervous system just like adults. It’s certainly much better to grow healthy kids than to fix broken adults!

“I met Dr. David a little over a year ago. I could hardly turn my neck from side to side, or stand or sit for long periods of time. I am a pain patient. I am fused in the neck and low back. I also have a bulging disc in my neck. Working with Dr. David we’ve achieved mobility, energy, healing. I quit smoking, walk every day. I feel so much better, my digestion, mood. I have to say what drew me to him was his bedside manner. It’s real good! He really cares about your health and well being. His approach to care is dedicated. I carry his cards in my wallet and hand them out all the time!”
