Our Approach is based on 4 underlying principles:

  1. The body is designed with an inborn ability to maintain itself in a state of proper function.
  2. The brain and nerve system are the primary tools by which the body attains proper function, what we commonly call health.
  3. Interference in the nerve system reduces the body’s ability to function in a coordinated manner.
  4. We address one form of interference to the nerve system called a Vertebral Subluxation.

Our approach to Chiropractic is unique and may very well be one of the least understood philosophies of life and health. It is based on a few logical ideas.

The body is designed with an inborn ability to maintain itself in a state of proper function. A newborn baby may seem fragile and helpless, but within that body is the ability to make food into living tissue, to fight off invading organisms, to adapt to changes in the environment, to live as much as 100 or more years, in short, to lead a healthy and productive life.

The brain and nerve system are the primary tools by which the body attains proper function, what we commonly call health. The brain is the control centre that distributes information throughout the body to coordinate its trillions of cells, facilitating continuous adaptation to changes in the internal and external environment. The brain must receive and send the right information at the right time in the right amounts to all cells, organs and systems of the body.

Interference in the nerve system reduces the body’s ability to function in a coordinated manner. While a corpse does have a brain and nerve system, it does not have life. There is no encoded information in the form of energy transferred across the nerve system. In a living body even slight damage to the delicate and vital nerve system will lessen its health, its performance levels and its full potential.

We address one form of interference to the nerve system called a Vertebral Subluxation. Our single objective is to aid in the restoration of the integrity of the nerve system in EVERYONE from infants, children, adults, pregnant moms, athletes and seniors, so that entire communities are able to express life at a higher level.
