"Complete Chiropractic Care For You and Your Entire Family"

In simplest terms, a subluxation (a.k.a. Vertebral Subluxation) is when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) stop moving and create pressure on, or irritates spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling over those nerves.

 

How does this affect you? Your nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of your body. If you interfere with the signals traveling over nerves, parts of your body will not get the proper nerve messages and will not be able to function at 100% of their innate abilities. In other words, some part of your body will not be working properly. It is the responsibility of the doctor of chiropractic to locate subluxations, and reduce or correct them. This is done through a series of chiropractic adjustments specifically designed to correct the vertebral subluxations in your spine. Chiropractors are the only professionals who undergo years of training to be the experts at correcting subluxations.

Who can benefit from chiropractic?

Everyone can benefit from chiropractic, newborns to the elderly. If treatment is indicated, chiropractic care is very beneficial to your health. For some, chiropractic care could mean freedom from pain without the use of drugs or surgery. For everyone treatment could mean that they perform, work, live and function on a higher level. Chiropractic is drugless, non-invasive, and safe. The most common side effect of chiropractic is not a side effect at all, but rather the effect of feeling clearer, more balanced, and better as a whole. For many this often means living pain free. Children, young adults, adults and the elderly may all benefit from a properly functioning nervous system. Life is stressful both physically and mentally, and we are all affected. We all want to live happy, healthy lives that are as productive and comfortable as possible. Chiropractic is available to all, to serve you both preventively and to heal your ailing systems. It is often said that good health is priceless, and yet we often ignore the health of the nervous system that controls our body. Everyone, young and old should be evaluated and treated when clinically indicated by a chiropractic physician.

What is a subluxation?

Helping you with top-notch chiropractic treatments for the last 10 years!

What can I expect from my first visit?

Your first visit to Lane Family Chiropractic will give you an opportunity if chiropractic can help you. The doctor will perform a thorough history of your present complaints as well as your past history. The doctor will then perform a thorough examination on the area of complaint as well as corresponding areas and make recommendations accordingly. X-rays may be needed to give the doctor more information to help treat you. There is not an x-ray machine on site, but Lane Family Chiropractic has a facility nearby where x-rays can be taken. If x-rays are needed, the doctor will go over them with you and explain what she feels is causing your symptoms. If further tests are needed, they will be discussed at that time. Each patient will also be adjusted that same day unless otherwise contraindicated. If any questions arise during the visit, do not hesitate to ask the doctor. Your first visit will last from 30-45 minutes, but other visits following will take about 20-25 minutes.

Can I be adjusted if I am pregnant?

Of course, yes. Chiropractic is very safe for both the mother and the child. In fact, chiropractic can be very beneficial for pregnant women suffering from low back pain. The tables that chiropractors use can be adjusted to accommodate the growing belly of a pregnant woman. The tables allow the pregnant woman to lie on her stomach so the doctor is able to evaluate their lower back. The doctor's technique is modified, but the technique is safe and beneficial. If you are pregnant or think that you are pregnant, please inform your doctor immediately, because there are some therapies that cannot be performed in the area of a pregnant uterus.

Why should I go keep going to the chiropractor if I am feeling ok?

People usually only go the chiropractor when they feel pain in their neck, low back, or even suffer from a debilitating headache. This then causes a person to visit the chiropractor more frequently to get rid of their pain. As soon as their pain is gone, they often stop going to the chiropractor. You may feel fine, but the joints in your body may not be moving correctly and are not to the point of causing pain. Even though you may feel fine, regular visits to the chiropractor have been shown to decrease, even sometimes prevent exacerbations of pain that bring you to the chiropractor. Regular wellness adjustments can decrease the exacerbations of pain and in turn decrease your visits to the chiropractor. Regular adjustments have also been shown to decrease the number of illnesses that one experiences throughout the year.
