What is Chiropractic All About Anyway?

Chiropractic Has Always Been About Improving Health

“Have We forgotten our History Chiros?

It constantly amazes me at how many in my profession have no clue about the history of our great profession. So many docs became chiropractors in the late 80’s and current because it was a fast growing and good income profession. When my Dad went to Palmer Chiropractic College in 1954, most all students went because of a personal experience thru chiropractic saved their lives or made drastic improvements! As a result, the passion for our profession has gradually decreased. Is it just a job? Continue reading

Barrhaven Chiropractors are Not Surprised That Deadly Diabetes Drug is Being Pulled from the Market, but In November?

By Paul Sakuma, APThe federal government is restricting prescriptions for Avandia.
The diabetes drug Avandia will be pulled from retail pharmacy shelves in November because it poses such a big heart attack risk, the federal government announced Tuesday.

When the new program goes into effect on Nov. 18, only certified doctors will be allowed to prescribe the drug, and only to patients who’ve been informed of the risks and who will fill their prescriptions by mail order through specific pharmacies.

“It’s like a decade-long nightmare coming to an end,” said Steven Nissen, chief of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. “Eleven years after this drug was introduced, it will be so restricted in access that virtually no one will be able to get it.” Continue reading

Chiropractic Helps Child with Twitches

Chiropractic is about improving the health and vitality of the nervous system, which controls all other body function.

It goes beyond back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, and disc herniation that are commonly associated with seeking chiropractic care.  Chiropractor’s do not actually even treat any of these symptoms, as we don’t treat symptoms at all.  We improve overall health and healing so your body can take care of these concerns on it’s own.

See how this boy was helped with chiropractic care.

Chiropractor in Barrhaven, Gentle Chiropractic, Female chiropractor, Nepean, OttawaCurrent Research Supports Chiropractic Maintenance Care

Two research studies generated by the medical profession this year add evidence in support of the value of chiropractic maintenance care.

Chiropractic Maintenance Care Provides Long Term Benefit to People with Chronic Low Back Pain

The first study published in January 2011 in Spine concluded that “SMT [Spinal Manipulative Therapy or Spinal Adjustments] is effective for the treatment of chronic non specific LBP [low back pain]. To obtain long-term benefit, this study suggests maintenance spinal manipulations after the initial intensive manipulative therapy.”

Chiropractic Maintenance Care Results in Less Repeat Injury Than Physical Therapy and Medical Management

Beautiful video!

Barrhaven’s Marketplace Family Chiropractic Centre Doctor’s Comments:

Beautiful video!  One of the most important things that he says is, “I can’t imagine not adjusting my family.”  I agree 100%.  For one I can’t imagine living without chiropractic care myself, I know how much chiropractic has changed my life.  I really don’t know where I would be without chiropractic.  When you function at such a high level and feel so good all the time it is most definitely hard to ever go back to living at a lower level of vitality.  As for my family, how could I ever let my kids live with subluxations, live with interference to their optimal potential.  Could never do it.  Like all parents I want my kids to be able to be their best and to live at their healthiest.  That is why chiropractic is a must from birth.

If You Didn’t Get the Memo, Here It Is: Chiropractors are NOT Healers

If You Didn’t Get the Memo, Here It Is: Chiropractors are NOT Healers

“In fact, Chiropractors don’t heal anyone or anything. If anything, Chiropractors are only facilitators. Let me explain how.

When a vertebral subluxation is present in the spine, the body cannot receive the proper communication from the brain, OR send the proper sensory communication back up to the brain. This is because the subluxation is causing stress and tension to the spinal cord, affecting nervous system communication. When this takes place, the body goes into a state of dis-ease, which will eventually progress into a full-blown disease.

So What Do Chiropractors Do?

When a Chiropractor delivers a specific force to the level of the spine where the subluxation is present, it is the body’s Innate Intelligence that accepts the force and administers the adjustment. It may result in a full or partial reduction of the subluxation, but there is no way to accurately predetermine how much of the subluxation will be reduced.

It is the reduction of the subluxation, the interference to the brain-body communication, that allows the fullness of nervous system messages to reach their bodily destinations in full. When the full brain-body communication is present, it creates a healing atmosphere within the under-performing area of the body needing it most.”
