Choosing the Right Specialist
Choosing the right specialist with the right approach is at the forefront of obtaining optimal health results. Doctors of Chiropractic are specialists in spinal alignment and nervous system function. Chiropractors have the unique tools and training required to detect, analyze and correct spinal subluxations without the use of drugs or surgery.
Subluxation: A Major Health Blockage
The term subluxation refers to a condition of spinal misalignment resulting in nerve pressure.
According to Gray's Anatomy textbook:
"The Nervous System controls and coordinates all the systems of the body and relates the individual to their environment".
Very often subluxation may go unnoticed or ignored until dysfunction becomes advanced to severe. Pain & other symptoms may be the last sign your body gives you to let you know you have a health problem, not the first. In fact, the silent nature of subluxation is what makes it impossible to self-diagnose and rule out this serious impediment to normal health and function.
Health: It's a Family Affair
The health of one family member has an affect on the rest of the family, especially if you're living under the same roof.
At Spine & Posture Chiropractic Center, Dr Murphy believes in early detection for the whole family. Infants and young children can typically go straight to a maintenance program if subluxations are detected. This proactive approach allows youngsters to grow and develop under the direction of a healthy nervous system. Adults and the elderly, on the other hand, typically need some form of corrective care on their way to wellness.
To be PROactive or REactive, THAT is the Question.
The notion that a person is healthy as long as they have no symptoms and suddenly sick once they feel symptoms is an outdated and disproven approach to being truly healthy.
According their definition of HEALTH, even the World Health Organization agrees,
"Health is state of COMPLETE physical, mental, and
social well being and
not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
As well as Dorland's Medical Dictionary,
"HEALTH: A state of OPTIMAL physical, mental & social wellbeing,
and not merely the absence of diseases or infirmities."
Those definitions give us a reference point, something to aim toward. That is, COMPLETE & OPTIMAL WELLBEING in 3 different areas in your life: mental, physical & social. Furthermore, being healthy is specifically NOT just being free of symptoms, diseases or infirmity.
So, how do you OPTIMIZE your body's function and performance in order to become healthy?

"How can Chiropractic Help Me?"
If it's discovered that you have subluxations, then you could qualify our Spinal Corrective Programs. Each program is a balance of spinal adjustments and rehabilitative protocols with nutritional, ergonomic & exercise counseling.
A series of precise spinal adjustments are performed based on functional and structural indicators that will be clearly explained to the patient prior to care. Dr Murphy draws from a handful of spinal adjusting techniques to suit the individual patient's specific needs. This enables him to provide gentle adjustments for more delicate spines such as the elderly or infants.
To maximize the benefit & longevity of the doctor's adjustments, patients undergo a synergistic soft tissue rehabilitation program that is designed to accelerate correction and provide OPTIMAL function for the whole body.
Due to the uniqueness of our Corrective & Wellness Programs we provide our patients ongoing education on different aspects of chiropractic and natural healing.
