Can a chiropractor see things that I can’t?

Questions and Answers About Chiropractic

Question: Can a chiropractor see things that I can’t?

Answer: Yes! 

Chiropractors are always “checking people out.” We can’t avoid it because we know what it means and we know we can help!

When you see people walking down the street, do you notice if their shoes are pointed in the same direction or does one stick out or in more than the other? 

feet pointing

Do you notice if their heads are balanced front to back, side to side, on their necks?

head tilt

Do you notice if one hand seems to be a little lower on the body than the other hand?

shoulder

Do you notice if one arm swings a little more than the other?

If the hip swings more on one side than the other when a person walks? If, when lying down, one leg appears shorter than the other?

These, and other seemingly minor differences are common and can be very important. Yet most people don’t notice or appreciate them. But your chiropractor often notices them and sees the tremendous importance in body balance and symmetrical movement.

Now you know why top professional and Olympic athletes visit chiropractors – for better balance, coordination and movement plus more energy and efficiency of motion.

If you notice any of these things in you, or in someone you know, we can help!

Greetings all,April 2018

We now can officially say summer is here with all  the fun and games of family, friends, graduations reunions, vacations, BBQs, sunshine, suntans and mosquitoes all mixed into one big messy bundle.

This month- (Flag Day June 14th) Dr. Ray and I celebrated 38 years (each) in Chiropractic, having graduated summer of 1980.  Daughter Damaris celebrated 8 years since her graduation a week later and she has firmly established herself in Norway in her own practice- specializing in babies and pregnant women.

She will be meeting us in Scotland at the End of July and so we will be away from the office 7/27/2018  to 8/5/2018. Time to get away, re-connect and have fun with Alfred who is growing like a weed! My niece will possibly be joining us from the Isle of Jersey.

This month will see me competing in a power lifting meet in Rochester Hills 6/23 and the Senior Olympics will follow in August (8/12).

Make this a great summer and feel free to share any of your recipes or holiday experiences with us.

SEE YOU IN THE OFFICE, ON THE TABLE, ON THE MAT OR UNDER THE BARBELLS

What Do Doctors of Chiropractic Do?

slide4Have you ever been treated by Doctors of Chiropractic?

Doctors of chiropractic promote physical and emotional well being. Chiropractic has become the largest natural, drug-free healthcare system in the US (and world) because chiropractors perform a unique service.

Doctors of chiropractic are able to locate and correct subluxations, a condition that damages nerves, muscles, fascia, meninges and other tissues. Subluxations cause joints to “freeze” or lose normal movement, causing damage to the involved area.

Subluxations cause imbalance, weakness, pain, inflammation, abnormal body function – and much more. 

Under chiropractic care your head is more balanced, your hips and shoulders are more level and stress is taken off the joints and muscles throughout your body. Because less of your energy goes into supporting an unbalanced spine and skeleton, you may immediately discover more energy, greater ease in movement and improved relaxation.

A healthy spine and structural system can make the difference between a life of pain, suffering and disability and one of ease, healing, happiness and freedom. Subluxations may be caused by stress that overwhelms us. For that reason, it is important to see your chiropractor to be “de-stressed” periodically.

Why wait? Come in before it causes damage. And bring your family so everyone can enjoy a healthier 2018. Call us today! (517) 627-4547
