You are the decision maker for your health care. Therefore we provide you with information to assist you in making informed choices.
Our practitioners use different integrative approaches: chiropractic care, functional nutrition, supplementation, exercises, brain retraining techniques and energy healings.
For chiropractic adjustment we use our hands or an instrument to reposition anatomical structures, such as vertebrae. Potential benefits of an adjustment include restoring normal joint motion, reducing pain and inflammation in a joint, improving the alignment and in result neurological functioning and overall well-being. There may be additional supportive procedures or recommendations as well.
During the nutrition counseling you obtain information and guidance about health factors within your own control (diet, nutrition, and related behaviors), which helps nourishing the body, diminish and/or eliminate the systemic toxicity, inflammation and deficiencies. We do not dispense medical advice, any therapy consultation, or prescribe treatment. Our nutrition counseling is not intended for the diagnosis of any disease and is not a substitute for medical diagnosis, treatment, and/or care of a disease by a medical provider.
We encourage the use of brain-retraining programs when they are appropriate to inspire you through your difficult journey and create healthy habits. Purchasing these programs are absolutely your choice and your responsibility.
In our practice we may conduct some diagnostic or examination procedures carefully if indicated and they may be uncomfortable. As with all types of health care approaches, results are not guaranteed, there is no promise to cure and there are some possible risks to care, including, but not limited to: withdrawal and detox symptoms, muscle spasms, aggravating and/or temporary increase in symptoms, lack of improvement of symptoms, fractures (broken bones), disc injuries, strokes, dislocations, strains, and sprains. Stroke, could be the potential end result of a rare but serious condition known as a cervical arterial dissection that involves an abnormal change in the wall of an artery that may cause the development of a thrombus (clot). Strokes caused by arterial dissections have been associated with over 72 everyday activities such as sneezing, driving, and playing tennis. Patients who experience this condition often, but not always, present to their medical doctor or chiropractor with neck pain and headache. As chiropractic can involve manually and/or mechanically adjusting the cervical spine, it has been reported that chiropractic care may be a risk for developing this type of stroke. The association with stroke is exceedingly rare and is estimated to be related in one in one million to one in two million cervical adjustments.
It is important that you understand there are treatment options available for your condition other than procedures we offer in our practice. Likely, you have tried many of these approaches already. Lastly, you have the right to a second opinion and to secure other opinions about your circumstances and health care as you see fit.
