The intention of chiropractic care is to release subluxations in order to allow better expression of your body’s innate intelligence and, subsequently, promote wellness. At Hands on Wellness we use a technique called Bio-Geometric Integration (BGI). BGI incorporates, not only the spine and nervous system, but also the body’s soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, organs, glands), and energetic system.
Chiropractic spinal adjustments create functional changes in multiple regions of the brain based upon multiple outcome measures that are measurable and reproducible. The areas of the brain affected by chiropractic adjustments affect the following functions: emotions, learning, motivation, memory, consciousness, homeostasis, perception, motor control, self-awareness, cognitive function, voluntary movements, decision making, touch, temperature, pain of the skin-epithelial tissue- skeletal muscles-bones-internal organs, and cardiovascular system. This has far reaching effects in setting the foundation for understanding how the adjustment works in systemic and autonomic changes by being able to measure and reproduce functional changes within the brain as direct result.
Structural shifts on your spine are likely contributors to the onset of neck and low back pain, numbness/tingling in the extremities, headaches and overall poor posture. Structural abnormalities, if left untreated, can develop into much more serious conditions, like damage to the discs and joints.
We take seriously the holistic approach to your well-being, encompassing all aspects of health, from activity and diet, to the air and water quality in your home. It is important to be proactive when it comes to your health and to understand the importance of lifestyle changes as opposed to quick, temporary fixes.
