Chiropractic is a science, art and philosophy. At Journey, we believe health is a state of optimal physical, emotional and social well-being. Our clinic strives to maintain a state of health through influencing the nervous, skeletal and muscular systems. The nervous system is recognized as the control system for our bodies self-regulating processes. Interference with neurological function can impede these mechanisms, disrupting our bodies internal, physical, and chemical functions. Chiropractic restores motion of the spinal column and other articulations to improve nervous and musculoskeletal system function and our expression of health. The nervous system controls everything.
Chiropractic focuses on neurological and musculoskeletal integrity. Chiropractors aim to favorably impact health, well-being, relieve pain and weakness, enhance overall performance, and improve quality of life without drugs or surgery. The Doctor of Chiropractic is a primary care provider for the prevention, diagnosis and management of spine-related disorders and associated conditions. The practice of chiropractic includes clinically necessary assessments of a patient's health status, needs, concerns and conditions by obtaining a case-appropriate history and physical examination. Chiropractic care is accomplished through goal-oriented management plans that include treatment recommendations intended to favorably influence outcomes, behaviors and lifestyle choices. Chiropractic treatment includes administration of manual therapeutic procedures - such as the chiropractic adjustment, mobilization or soft tissue techniques. We also utilize active exercise and rehabilitation, nutritional counseling and supplementation, bracing, strapping and other therapies
Your nervous system, consisting of your brain, spinal cord and all your nerves, is the most vital system of your body. It’s purpose is to coordinate and regulate all the other systems of your body. Just a few of the jobs it looks after, without a conscious thought from you are: producing stomach acid after a meal, communicating with the immune system, increasing your pulse, reducing blood pressure, producing pain when touching a hot stove, sweating to cool you down when you're hot. If your nervous system was to be impaired, interfered with, or compromised (pinched nerves, etc) it will distort the signals going to your brain, causing your body to not work as intended. That is why the most significant parts of your nervous system are protected by bone. Your brain is protected by your skull and your spinal cord is covered by the moving bones of your spinal column. Even with this protection abnormal function can happen, especially around the spinal column. When the spine is misaligned, you have herniated or bulging discs, or maybe you slept wrong, restriction of the normal spinal motion can cause pain
