Can a Chiropractor Really be a Primary Care Provider?

Absolutely! Chiropractors already do act as Primary Health care providers to many people. Although there are many different types of chiropractic and adjusting, both from technique, but also in philosophy. You have a wide range of choices to suit your goals and objectives. Nonetheless, chiropractors and our education is founded on spinal health as a primary resource and foundation for the health of the body. Understanding that role is the foundation to more invasive care working outward. In other words, we start conservative, first using the spine in the body's own healing method and healing ability.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic is the science, philosophy, and art of evaluating, analyzing, and correcting spinal misalignments that affect the nervous system. We are trained to restore balance with our hands through adjustments of the spine and joints. We also utilize a variety of methods including biological and nutritional methods to correct imbalances that may be causing inflammation, pain, and problems affecting overall health.

You can learn more about our treatment methods by vising Our Methods page.

What is Wholistic Chiropractic?

We view wholistic chiropractic as looking at the "whole of the body". We take the whole person into context including the person and where their problems are coming from. We don't just treat a condition or the problem a person comes in with. Instead, we focus on how to correct the problem. We also want to empower the patient so they can be in charge and be in control of their own health, instead of depending on someone else to fix the problem. 

Most importantly, our philosophy is to see the connection between the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and chemical. Part of that contribution also comes from drugs, medications, foods and also in the chemicals found in our foods and water that play a role in our health. This also includes taking into consideration the hormonal and digestive system imbalances as well. We use state-of-the-art methods that help us discover what issues may be causing imbalances in the way your body functions and provide you with answers that will help you take control of your health instead of staying inside the revolving door of a broken health care system.

You can learn more about our wholistic approaches utilizing biological, nutritional, and methylation cycles on our Biological & Nutritional Treatment page.
