What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic Care focuses on the relationship between the body’s main structures – the skeleton, the muscles and the nerves – and the patient’s health. The goal is to improve and preserve health by making adjustments to these structures. We do not prescribe drugs or perform surgical procedures, although we do refer patients for these services if they are medically indicated.
Most patients seek chiropractic care for back pain, neck pain and other joint problems. However, many patients choose a chiropractor because they prefer a holistic approach and treatment plans that do not rely on medication or surgery.
What is Wellness Care?
Wellness Care seeks to turn on the body’s natural healing ability by removing anything that might interfere with normal function, trusting that the body would know what to do if nothing were interfering with it.
Subtle misalignments of the spine can interfere with proper function and contribute to injuries, pain, and even sickness and mental health issues. The spine plays a pivotal role in posture, integrating and coordinating movement, and ultimately protecting the spinal cord—the primary conduit for the brain’s communication to every single tissue, cell and structure in the body. Wellness based chiropractic addresses these subtle misalignments or breakdowns in spinal movement, so that a person can achieve better overall health and keep doing the things they love to do.
How do Chiropractic and Wellness Care at NeuroAthlete apply to me?
At its essence, Chiropractic and Wellness Care recognize that the body is wonderfully made, and that when everything is in order it operates phenomenally well. This means that your body is reacts to various issues or stress, whether physical, chemical or emotional. When these stresses increase and compound sometimes the body develops movements and alignments that are not ideal, and these adaptations can lead to issues.
Significant problems require precise diagnosis and care that quickly identify and address the root problem. First, we eliminate your pain; next we help you achieve new performance highs. These services are excellently provided by Dr. Grove Higgins and his team at NeuroAthlete with a brain-based approach that address functional deficiencies and gets a patient on the road to health.
Dr. Higgins has often told his patients, “I want to get you back to doing the things you love and then I want to see you as little as possible.” This is where wellness-based chiropractic comes in. The spine plays a pivotal role in posture, keeping people upright, integrating and coordinating movement, protecting the spinal cord, making it possible for the brain to communicate to every single tissue, cell and structure in the body. Subtle misalignments can be detrimental and consequently lead a person back down the path of dysfunction and injury. Wellness based chiropractic, provided by Dr Ryan Engelhardt, addresses these subtle misalignments or breakdowns in spinal segmental movement, so that you can achieve optimization, better overall health, and subsequently less injury.
