Disease Care or Vitalistic Care?

Which type of care makes sense to you?

Disease care is offered by someone who is attempting to treat symptoms, alleviate pain or “cure” disease.  This is an “outside in” approach.  Usually a person waits until they have a symptom and seek care to treat the pain with drugs, therapy or surgery.  A person who prescribes to this type of care ignores the cause of the problem and tries to simply cover it up.  They also ignore the powerful healing ability  of the body and the functioning of the body as a whole.

 Vitalistic care on the other hand does not treat symptoms or disease, but rather concerns itself with  making sure the body is working the best it can internally—an “inside out” approach.  A person who prescribes to this type of care recognizes the internal wisdom of the body that heals, repairs and maintains function within the body and makes sure there is not interference to  this mechanism.  This type of care goes after the cause of the problem rather than covering it up.

Vitalistic Chiropractors provide true health care.  They concern themselves  with interference to the system of the body that controls all functions—the nerve system.

Vertebral subluxations cause an interference to the nerve system, therefore body functioning is decreased and thus the person’s overall health suffers.  Chiropractors also respect the body’s innate wisdom and constant striving to maintain health.

If going after the cause of the problem and thus maintaining the functioning of the body from within make more sense to you than treating the symptom or disease, then you are in the vitalistic model.

As chiropractors, we are proud to offer you this type of care that can truly be called vitalistic care.

Subluxations Start At Birth

Dr. Godfrey Gutmann, a German physician, conducted a study of over 1,000 newborns shortly after birth.  He discovered that over 80% of the infants had suffered trauma to their cervical spine, which resulted in vertebral subluxations.

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

male-nervous-system-artwork-168837900-578117135f9b5831b57baa42Traditional chiropractors such as ourselves recognize the inherent ability of living organisms to maintain themselves in health and to repair themselves when damaged. This inherent ability or inborn wisdom within the body is called Innate Intelligence.

We recognize that harmony within the body is a normal state. Harmony of all the body’s organs, tissues and cells is called HEALTH. An absence of health is an unnatural state which is called DIS-EASE or lack of normal body function. Traditional chiropractors are not involved in treating disease or covering up symptoms, but in restoring health.

The inborn intelligence or life force exists within each of us. It is the intelligence that gives you the ability to adapt to your internal and external environment. The main organs used by this innate intelligence is the brain and nervous system.

Nothing in your body will work unless the brain and nervous system tells it what to do. If there is an interference to this operating and functioning system, it will leave the body in a state of malfunction and disharmony because the body is not receiving the proper signals it needs to work properly.

Vertebral subluxations are the major interference to this functioning system and thus will cause the body to develop weaknesses, body breakdown and poor health.

Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy of the location, analysis and correction of vertebral subluxations.

Health on a Budget

54f5fb6cbdbb5_-_1-red-wallet-open-lgn

WE’RE CONVINCED THAT IT’S LESS EXPENSIVE TO KEEP ONE’S HEALTH, THAN TO TRY AND RECOVER ONE’S HEALTH.

 

Like losing anything, recovering your health will require an investment of your time and money.

 

Prevention

You’ve heard the adage, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That’s why each of us in the office gets checked or adjusted on a regular basis. Even when we’re feeling great.

 

Early Detection

Uncovering pre-symptomatic vertebral subluxations is like detecting pre-symptomatic tooth decay. Regular chiropractic checkups save time and money by identifying little problems before they become more serious.

 

Wellness

Beyond maintenance and prevention, wellness care helps us become all that we can be. This proactive approach to health produces the greatest benefits of all. Those who avail themselves of wellness care rarely get a cold, the flu or the “bugs that seem to be going around.”  The reason for this is that the nerve system is free of interference and allows the body to heal and function the way it is intended.

Calm Down!

fec187702c530a52e3d89ec2d7badf73

A calm person is far more likely to heal quicker and respond faster than a hysterical one with similar health problems.  Calmness accelerates healing and recovery time. In fact, calmness not only governs healing, it is a prime determinant of “Quality of Life.”

 

While inflammation, pain and edema can be described as noise in the cellular matrix of the body, fear, worry and irritation would be noise in the nerve system. These noises interfere with our lives, exhaust us, and wear down our resistance to disease, making us more susceptible to colds and flu, impeding recovery.

 

When our bodies are quiet, they are capable of amazing things. Calming this “noise” or stress in the nerve system is probably the single most important factor in increasing the body’s ability to heal itself and in increasing quality of life. When our nerve system is quiet we are able to think more clearly, concentrate better and adapt to the environment at a much higher level.

 

A chiropractic adjustment is the quickest and most effective way to calm the nerve system and improve healing. Since the nerve system is the chief means of communication in the body, noise can interfere with nerve flow and lead to health problems. Doctors of chiropractic specialize in calming the nerve system by restoring vital communication within the body by delivering a chiropractic adjustment to correct vertebral subluxations.

The Dow Jones Of Healing

The Dow Jones of HealingHealing is like the stock market. It never progresses in a straight line. You’ve got to expect some ups and downs along the way.

You might experience a surge of relief when you first start your Chiropractic care only to be followed by a setback. Soon you’re back on track, seeing huge improvements. Progress continues with bouts of highs and lows, and you may even experience a plateau or dip in your improvements. But don’t make the mistake of ‘pulling out of the market’ early.

Keep the big picture in mind. Like stocks, the gains in Chiropractic care are best seen over time. When you look back and see how far you’ve come since your first visit, you’ll realize the LIFE dividends are paying off.

Cement Spines!

The longer you wait between adjustments, the more vertebral Subluxations have a chance to 'set up' and the harder they are to correct

You know you’ve waited too long in between adjustments when your body becomes abnormally stiff and tight.

You know you’ve waited too long in between adjustments when your body becomes abnormally stiff and tight. Getting out of bed in the morning has become a major chore, standing up from a chair seems to take a millennium to accomplish. Sometimes it feels as if you just swallowed a bag of quikrete – and it’s beginning to set up permanently in your spine.

One of the dangers of losing flexibility in your spine is its negative effect on your Nerve System. Studies have shown a direct link to loss of segmental motion in the spine and a phenomena called Sympathetic Dominance – a condition where the ‘fight or flight’ response of your Nerve System becomes over active, leading to altered internal organ function, chronic fatigue and even possible death (the ultimate state of rigidity).

The longer you wait between adjustments, the more vertebral Subluxations have a chance to ‘set up’ and the harder they are to correct. Don’t wait for chronic symptoms of fixation to manifest. Get checked and adjusted on a regular basis to keep your spine loose and your Life energy flowing abundantly.
