My Philosophy of Chiropractic:
It's all about movement - good quality movement! Our bodies are designed to move - it's what keeps them healthy. Poor ergonomics and postural strain lead to tight, short, imbalanced (and often painful) muscles. These can limit range of motion in joints; if the joints can't move they deteriorate, and become arthritic - it's as simple as that.
My primary goal with every one of my patients is to improve the quality of motion of their joints, in whatever way works - some people require more soft tissue work (to loosen and balance muscles), others, regular mobilization and manipulation of the joints; some people's bodies are very sensitive, so gentle techniques are the most appropriate and effective approach. In my 10 years of practice I have learned that each patient has different needs and comfort levels; I try to meet you where you are, and help get you where you want to be.
The three recommendations I make for practially everyone are: MOVE your body (get active); eat REAL wholesome food ; find time to de-stress (RELAX and nurture yourself).
