Is Chiropractic Care Safe?

Chiropractic is very safe, especially when compared to the medical profession.

Malpractice insurance rates are great indicators of what is dangerous. The truth is that malpractice rates for a Medical Doctor will usually be at least 10 times higher than the same coverage for a Chiropractor. The medical community might be able to fool the public but not the insurance companies.

All surgical procedures… even minor surgery has risk. All of these have higher risk of injury and death than seeing a Chiropractor. So what are you waiting for? Relief from your problems might be just be click away.

Here's What to Expect

Chiropractic has been around for over 100 years and Doctors of Chiropractic are licensed in every state. Joint and structural alignment by using the adjustment is the most known method of treatment used by Chiropractors. Often a “click” or “clicking sound” will be heard or felt as joints are adjusted.

Realignment of the spine or joints will often provide quick relief of pain and improve mobility and function. Just like a car that needs realigned, we hit pot holes in life with our daily work, family and play. These pot holes leave effects that will cause stiffness, achiness, and headaches.

Just like a car out of alignment leads to tires and other parts wearing out quickly, skeletal misalignments will cause the body to wear out more quickly leading to further muscle and joint pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia and inflammation. Many people find that an occasional Chiropractic adjustment tune up relieves stress and helps them feel good, sleep better and have more energy. Don’t forget to schedule a Chiropractic visit for your next adjustment to help optimize your structure and health. Relief is often just a click away.

How We Can Treat Pain & Improve Your Health

Back Pain
Chiropractors are the experts on low back problems and pain. Training to become a Doctor of Chiropractic is very extensive in this area and many studies show that most people are very satisfied with the drug free results. Other studies have shown that utilizing Chiropractic can save people and insurance companies significant financial burden, because disability is reduced, surgery is avoided, and relief of pain is greater and longer lasting.

The low back structures are subject to a lot of abuse from carrying too much weight, lack of exercise, strenuous work, too much sitting, and stress. It might surprise you to know that in studies and in Chiropractic offices, there are people that have been told back surgery was needed, yet after a few Chiropractic adjustments, surgery was avoided.

Often, just a few treatments are needed to see results but sometimes with more serious injuries- treatment and repair of the back will take weeks or even months to stabilize. Long term… avoiding surgery, if possible, is always a good idea. Maybe the solution for your back problem is just a click away.
Sometimes, headaches are simply a nuisance and other times can greatly affect our daily lives. Many headaches can be caused by neck problems. The necks structure is very complex and the vertebrae, joints, muscle and ligaments can become slightly misaligned through stress or strain, affecting the arteries and nerves causing symptoms of headache.

Many times a Chiropractor can easily adjust the cervical neck vertebrae to a more stress free position often causing significant and sometimes immediate relief. Typically, only 2-3 of the Chiropractic adjustments will be needed to determine if there will be improvement. Does the adjustment hurt? Just a click or mild clicking sound might be heard or felt as structures are being adjusted.

For over 100 years, millions of people have used Chiropractic for headache relief. Call today! Relief from your headaches might be just a click away.
Pregnancy Pain
While pregnancy is normal and natural, the stresses to the female body while the baby grows inside can become quite uncomfortable.

The quick addition of weight and additional nutrient requirement that can occur as the fetus grows in the womb can make for an unstable pelvis and lower spine. The instability can be aggravated with lack of exercise.

As the pregnancy advances, there are a cascade of hormonal changes causing ligaments of the pelvis to loosen in preparation for labor and delivery. These loose pelvic ligaments along with the instability of the additional weight can lead to minor misalignments of the spine and pelvis, resulting in low back pain, leg pain, soreness, and achiness, making sleep difficult and having a general feeling of instability.

Chiropractors can often make mild adjustments to the back and pelvis that bring significant relief. Sometimes a little ‘click’ is felt during the chiropractic adjustment to the spine and pelvis that can bring quick and sometimes dramatic relief.

Chiropractors will often also recommend a series of exercises and stretching to help relieve pain and provide increased stability by strengthening the muscles. Sometimes women will have more than usual ligament laxity and the ‘Click’ of an adjustment brings welcome relief that might need to be done more frequently the closer a woman is to delivery.

There are many testimonies of women claiming that getting adjusted helps them to relax and have a faster and easier delivery. So, experience relief today with our chiropractic services in Burlington!
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an inflammatory condition in which a malfunctioning immune system causes the body to attack itself. The traditional approach to this condition has been to treat using immune suppressing drugs, steroids, and anti-inflammatory drugs. But is this the only option? Does it address the complex, fundamental causes of this disease?

There is another answer for those who suffer with Rheumatoid Arthritis. We offer a comprehensive approach to helping those afflicted with this multifaceted disease. He or she will assess the essential factors that may play a role in RA.

The Big Question About Rheumatoid Arthritis

The big questions here is, “Why aren’t my joints healing and repairing?” or “Why is my body not willing to allocate nutrients toward joint repair?” Do you think maybe your body has more important things to do with those nutrients? Maybe there is some more important internal function that needs the extra nutrients right now and the body is not going to waste those valuable nutrients on non-essential tissue. Your joints, muscles and energy level are non-essential to the body.

Your body needs to make sure your liver function, kidney function, immune system, etc are optimized and as a result it will break down your muscles, joints and bones to free up nutrients and protein to be used for more important bodily function! So, if you’re not getting the nutrients your body needs from your diet, guess what’s going to happen! But, how do you know which nutrients you’re deficient in?

What We Do

We understand that the key to overcoming Rheumatoid Arthritis lies in the testing. Proper testing will identify major and minor key elements of imbalance and deficiency, environmental toxicities, stress and physical structure, abnormal organ functions, digestive disorders, and much more. Through careful examination and analysis, and by addressing these conditions, we can help you know what lifestyle changes you need to make in order for your body to heal itself and restore your health.
Sciatica is a pain that’s created when your sciatic nerve becomes pinched. Unfortunately, it’s fairly common, as it affects up to 40% of people. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body, as it runs from the lower back, past the hips, and down each leg to the toes. Sciatica can be experienced anywhere along this path; but, most people usually experience it on one side of their body. Although sciatica can resolve on its own, there are many cases where a little assistance is needed. That’s why we’re here to treat your sciatica with chiropractic care.

Chiropractic is a popular treatment for sciatica, because it can relieve pain naturally and safely, without any use of medication. With adjustments, spinal decompression, and exercises, we can take the pressure off the sciatic nerve, alleviating the pain and allowing the body to heal itself. Countless individuals are finding relief from their sciatica with chiropractic care; we hope you will do the same.
Sinusitis, Sinus Pain & Congestion
What is the best treatment for sinus pain and congestion? Is it antibiotics? Most often, no. In fact, there is little evidence to support the use of penicillin, amoxicillin, and other antibiotics for the treatment of sinusitis.

The overuse of antibiotics in such cases can lead to the creation of antibiotic resistant bacteria, compounding the problem. Plus, antibiotics may reduce the infection the first time but it will also kill off all of your good bacteria [which you need for a healthy immune system]. This is going to leave you more susceptible to bigger and more frequent infections.

Why are you getting sinus infections?

Why isn’t your body healthy enough to fight off the invaders? We offer a safe alternative to antibiotics in the management of chronic or recurrent sinusitis. With the focus on increasing the health of your body, we will implement a strategy that addresses the underlying cause of sinusitis, namely an unhealthy immune system, poor lifestyle habits, and nutrient deficiencies. A combination of physical examination and appropriate laboratory testing can reveal the status of these fundamental dysfunctions, allowing us to determine the most effective and appropriate action to correct them. By addressing the underlying cause or causes of chronic sinusitis, we can help you achieve effective, permanent relief and restore your good health and well-being.

There are two glands located above each kidney called the adrenals. They influence many body functions that are extremely important to our well-being. When the adrenal rhythm is abnormal it can affect a variety of areas.

Effects of Abnormal Adrenal Rhythm

• Energy production: abnormal adrenal rhythms lead to low energy levels, poor blood sugar regulation, and a hard time rising in the morning.

• Muscle and Joint function: Tissue healing may be compromised and tissue breakdown can lead to chronic pain.

• Bone health: If the morning cortisol level is too high or the evening cortisol level is elevated we become more prone to osteoporosis.

• Immune Health: The cortisol cycle if disrupted, can adversely affect the immune system and resistance to infection is reduced and allergic reactions can increase.

• Skin Regeneration: A normal cortisol rhythm is needed for optimal skin health. High cortisol levels at night prevent optimal skin regeneration.

• Thyroid Function: It is common for hypothyroid symptoms such as fatigue and low body temperature to be caused by adrenal dysfunction.

• Sleep Quality: High cortisol values at night and in the morning can decrease deep sleep resulting in a reduction of mental vitality and depression. Common symptoms may include feeling tired and fatigued during the day with the inability to sleep at night.

• Grain Intolerance and Stress: If the gut becomes inflamed within 30 minutes of eating grains it can cause increased cortisol and reduced DHEA.

What We Do We can test for adrenal dysfunction and recommend customized treatment as well as preventative measures including diet and lifestyle changes, and proper supplementation based upon your individual test results.
Thyroid Disease
Are you taking thyroid medications and wish there was a safe alternative? Do you have all the symptoms of thyroid disease, but you are continually told it is normal? Often small variations in thyroid levels that are within the medically normal range can create severe symptoms.

Many physicians only test the TSH, however to accurately diagnose thyroid disease it is necessary to order the appropriate tests and to interpret them correctly. It is important to run T3 uptake, T4, T7 and at times other tests like Reverse T3, thyroid immunoglobins, and TSH. Other tests that may help influence the thyroid include heavy metal analysis, iodine levels, and lifestyle evaluations.

What We Do

There are natural alternatives to manage and correct thyroid disease that may include vitamins, enzymes, homeopathic remedies and diet modification. Ask us to order the proper tests, evaluate them and manage thyroid disease naturally.
