What to expect

During your first visit, we will spend time with you to determine your Chiropractic and Physical Therapy needs. This usually involves X-Rays of your spine, and any other ligaments that are causing you stress. Dr. Morris may then give you your first "adjustment" which may also include physical therapy treatment such as electrolysis or ultrasound. Your first visit will usually take about one hour, and future visits will usually be no more than 30 minutes.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. Doctors call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Subluxation, meaning less than total dislocation, and complex meaning - consisting of more than one part.

How does Chiropractic work?

The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help remove interference to your nervous system. The most common interference to the nervous system is the twenty-four moving bones of the spinal column. When the correct position of these bones is altered they can irritate or impair the function of the nerves. A Chiropractor can help remove interference that may be impairing normal health.

What causes a Subluxation

Many things contribute to Subluxation including poor posture, accidents, stress, emotional tensions, and chemical toxins.

What type of education do Chiropractic Doctors get?

The science of chiropractic requires a special emphasis on anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, biochemistry, bio mechanics, X-ray, spinal adjusting techniques, and related subjects. To graduate with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, each candidate must pass the demanding National Board of Examination. Then, doctors must pass a still more difficult test before being granted the privilege to practice.

What is an adjustment?

A Chiropractic adjustment is performed by using a gentle specific force applied in a precise direction to a bone and or joint. This gradually returns the bone and joint to a more natural position and motion. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is improved spinal function, improved nervous system function, and improved health.

Is Chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs.

Can I adjust myself?

Because a chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in a specific direction, to a specific spinal joint, it is virtually impossible to adjust oneself.

Why do children need Chiropractic care?

Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Later learning to walk, ride a bicycle, and other childhood activities can cause spinal problems.

While a bandage and some comforting words can help a skinned knee, the unseen damage to the child's spine is the unique domain of a chiropractic doctor. Many of the childhood complaints that brushed off as "growing pains" can often be traced to the spine.
