What is Chiropractic Care?

A Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) recognizes many factors that affect your health, including exercise, stress level, sleep, nutrition, heredity and the environment. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining your health naturally to help your body resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease. Your body holds the potential to help heal its self naturally and chiropractic helps to ensure that your body is able to use this power by focusing on the nervous system.

Your nervous system is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves that communicate with every single cell in your body. When this important communication from the brain to the nerves is interrupted, the body is unable to function at its full potential. This can cause all sorts of aliments, such as pain, numbness/tingling, headaches, ear infections, asthma, high blood pressure and reflux to name a few. Communication is interrupted when the bones of the spine are mal-positioned or not moving properly. This lack of spinal movement is termed a spinal subluxation. Doctors of Chiropractic will naturally and gently treat the spinal subluxation with an adjustment. An adjustment is a gentle force that in applied to the spine by the doctor using their hands or an instrument called an Activator.

The objective of the chiropractic adjustment is to reduce the subluxation, which results in an increased range of motion, reduced nerve irritability, reduced muscle spasm, reduced pain and improved function. The body then will have the ability to heal its self naturally after these interferences are removed. Proper nutrition is also essential for the body to function at its optimal capacity and affects the healing process.

Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique: ART…Release your Pain!

Using Active Release Technique© (ART©), Dr. Cole Bergeson provides a way to diagnose and treat the cause of cumulative trauma disorders which often result in symptoms such as numbness, tingling, burning, aching, and stiffness. ART© is a hands-on therapy that corrects muscular and soft tissue problems caused by the adhesion formations that occur with overuse or cumulative trauma.

Cumulative trauma and overuse of soft tissue causes Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI). Soft tissue that is forced to perform the same job over and over becomes irritated and then inflamed. The body responds to that inflammation by laying down scar tissue in an attempt to stabilize the area. This scar tissue, in turn, causes further inflammation and begins an ongoing cycle that worsens the condition. The longer this condition persists, the harder it is to break cycle.

Activator

The http://www.activator.com/ is a spring loaded handheld instrument that delivers a controlled, low force, quick thrust. With the low force fast delivery, patients stay relaxed allowing for a more comfortable and effective adjustment.

The Activator Method® is one of the most widely researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy.  The superiority of high-speed and low force allows the Activator to be used in comprehensive treatment to all areas of the spine and extremities. Many practitioners have come to appreciate the diversity of this Adjustment Instrument in treating their pediatric and geriatric patients as much as general chiropractors do in treating adult patients in all areas of the body.
