The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to correct the spinal subluxations detected during the examination and based on the patient’s complaint.
This is geared to the patient interested in improving their overall health. Or the patient who has something going on that traditional medical testing has not been able to pinpoint.
Trigger Point Therapy
This technique eases muscle tension. The trigger point on the muscle is compressed in an effort to loosen the built-up of lactic acid, which causes the muscles to tense up.

Wellness vs. Standard Medical Care
The main difference between wellness care and standard medical care is that wellness care uses the body’s natural healing ability provided the body is dealing with minimal stressors. Wellness care addresses potential stressors that might interfere with normal function. Stressors can include food sensitivity, toxicity from chemical exposure and/or from organs systems that are congested. Wellness care addresses the stressors that are challenging the body before they cause damage to the systems of the body. With traditional medical care, the typical approach is to treat the symptom by adding something from the outside – such as medication, a surgery or procedure. These measures, of course, can be life saving; however, they do not typically address the cause at the root of the problem.
Suppose a patient presents with high blood pressure, a standard medical approach would be to prescribe a drug that lowers blood pressure. This may serve to lower the blood pressure initially, but ignores the underlying cause that may be contributing to the high blood pressure, not to mention the medication’s side effects, plus the nutritional deficiency the drug will cause, further stressing the heart. Whether it’s a nutritional deficiency, environmental stressor, a pinched nerve in the spine or a manifestation of stress, the medication could decrease the blood pressure, dismissing the cause leading to high blood pressure to go unaddressed. A prime example of this is the natural arsenic found in the water supply in some areas. Research is relating some cases of high blood pressure and diabetes to these high levels of arsenic. Rather than masking the symptoms caused by the possible high arsenic levels in the body, wellness could address the cause, negating the need for the medication.
The Wellness Approach
Wellness is a state of optimal conditions for normal function. The wellness approach is to identify underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and then take whatever interventions and lifestyle changes that will optimize healthy bodily function. This type of environment encourages natural healing, and minimizes the necessity for crises management. When the body is working properly, it tends to heal effectively, no matter what the condition. When the body heals well and maintains itself well, then there is another level of health that goes beyond “asymptomatic” or “pain-free” which reveals an open-ended opportunity for vitality, vibrant health, and an enhanced life experience. This is true for mental and emotional health as well as physical health. Nutrient deficiency, gut health, mold, and neurotransmitter imbalances can contribute to mental health problems. Find the cause, don’t just mask it.
