What do we mean by this?

The Practice Members of Align have more nerve communication in their body than those who are not maintaining their nervous system…

Why is nerve communication important?

Your brain controls you. Your brain is responsible for the health, wellbeing and function of every single cell, tissue and organ in your body! You literally cannot pick up a carrot stick without your brain telling your body and your muscles exactly how to do so. The brain has to be able to communicate with each of the cells, tissues and organs of the body and it does so through the nervous system. The nervous system is the communication system that runs through your body and connects everything to the brain.

Health Education Seminars presented by Align Health and Wellness chiropractorsWhat causes interferences in this communication system?

Bad posture and altered structure of the body interfere with this communication system. The nerves start at the brain, travel down the spine in the spinal cord and exit between each of the vertebrae in the spine. An extremely uncomplicated way to understand this is to picture someone with a right shoulder that sits lower than their left. If you tilt your body in that direction you can imagine how the nerves on the right side get compressed and the nerves on the left side get stretched simply because of a slight tilt in the body. Now compound this over 5, 8 or even 25 years of functioning in this pattern. Not only will this affect the nerves but it will also change the biomechanics of how the body functions and cause the body to wear out faster than it would had the structure been normal.

What kinds of symptoms can nerve interferences cause?

Nerve interferences inhibit your body’s ability to heal so it can lead to a whole host of symptoms. Check out the rest of our website for information on the most common ailments that we have success with through treating nerve interferences.

How do I know if I have interferences in my communication system?

The only way to know if you have a cavity is to see a dentist. In the same way the only way to know if you have nerve interference is to see a chiropractor.  Chiropractors have their doctorate in detecting and correcting nerve interferences. It is important to keep in mind that there are several types of chiropractors out there with different goals of care so finding one that ALIGNS with you is key.

Is Align right for me?

We have no idea until we actually meet you! We offer complimentary consultations for all new patients at the clinic in order to determine if we can help you and if it is a good fit for you. Align specializes in Corrective Chiropractic, a technique where each person is adjusted specifically based on their individual structural patterns. The cool thing (one of them) about Corrective Chiropractic is that we can actually prove that correction is taking place over time.

What can I expect if I come in to meet with the doctors?

You will be greeted with a smile. After filling out some quick paperwork one of the doctors will take you on a tour of our facility. You will see our beautiful clinic and see where hundreds of families get adjusted every week. We will teach you more about what makes us unique, show you x-ray changes of our practice members, show you research that backs what we do and allow you to see some phenomenal testimonials from some of our practice members. We will then sit down with you and discuss any issues you may have. If we find that we can help you, we will tell you. If we cannot, we will help you find someone who can.
