Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors do not treat these diagnoses!  Instead of treating the diagnoses, we look for disturbances to the your bodies nervous system. We often find problems caused by spinal distortions in the upper neck. In fact, this link between the spine, brain stem dysfunction and sensory disorders are common. A thorough chiropractic examination can reveal noticeable spinal distortion, even a reversal of the normal neck curve. That’s why we often recommend a schedule of safe and natural chiropractic adjustments to help reduce the accompanying nervous system tension.

 

Each patient is evaluated for vertebral subluxations which are subtle misalignments of any one of the vertebrae forming the spinal column or any of the bones forming the pelvis. Vertebral subluxations can occur during fetal development, during the birthing process, or as the result of any physical, chemical, or emotional stress or trauma.  

 

Subluxations can result in a nervous system “disconnect” between the brain and the body. Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. These nerve impulses, messages between your brain and your body, travel through your spine.

 

Having a spine free from vertebral subluxation is essential for optimal heath.  Subluxations can also contribute to an atypical or immature development of the nervous system which can lead to various developmental delays or chronic health issues. Many children with neurodevelopmental disorders and adults with chronic health problems have a depressed immune system; chiropractic care is known to support immune system function. Dr. Bedesem utilizes a very specific chiropractic approach to ensure that each patient receives the exact care that they need. 

Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system.

They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery.

TONAL ADJUSTING PHILOSOPHY

Your nervous system contains hundreds of billions of nerve cells, controlling and coordinating all body functions – sensory reception, muscle reaction, metabolism, disease fighting, cellular repair, and mental stability.  Interference in messaging diminishes entire body functioning.  Interference develops as we respond to daily tensions with minute muscular constrictions; this creates subluxations and loss of tone. 

What is “tone”? What does it do?
Tone is the harmonious energy flow among all tissues in relation to your nervous system.

Nervous system tone determines entire body tone - how well you fight disease, how quickly you recover from injuries, even the balance of your emotional state as you confront stress. Strong tone equips you to meet each day with vigor and flexibility.

What is “Tonal Adjusting?”


Tonal Adjusting incorporates the discovery of quantum physics, that the subatomic particles of all matter radiate unique vibrations; their interactions influence the physical state of all objects. Tonal Adjusting stimulates the muscles along the spinal column, harmonizing vibrations and maximizing energy flow.

Tonal Adjusting respects the body by using low force to restore flow: no popping, cracking, or twisting. Tonal technique is particularly effective in creating a true healing state for the body.

CRANIAL RELEASE TECHNIQUE (CRT) & TORQUE RELEASE TECHNIQUE (TRT)

CRT and TRT tonal adjusting techniques effect harmonious balance between body and brain in just minutes, freeing the nervous system to transmit all signals the body needs for optimal functioning.

TORQUE RELEASE TECHNIQUE

TRT is a ground-breaking technique, generating highly efficient signal-processing between the spinal column and brain. It pinpoints tensions along the spine, which cannot be achieved by traditional manual adjustment.

Developed by Sir Jay Holder, M.D., D.C. Ph.D., Torque Release Technique uses a low-force “integrator” to lightly direct the nervous system to release tension. Tailored to each individual’s condition, signals are given while the spine is in a completely neutral, relaxed position.  No popping or twisting is involved.

CRANIAL RELEASE TECHNIQUE

Dr. William G. Sutherland, D.O. realized 100 years ago that our
22 cranial bones continue to shift throughout life. This movement impacts the meninges, which protects the brain and spinal chord and supports their blood supply.

Cranial Release Technique corrects nervous system function not accessed via traditional manipulations that focus on the spine. CRT gently encourages the bones of the cranial vault to align harmoniously, balancing right and left hemispheres for dynamic whole-brain function. The result is unrestricted flow of energy and messaging throughout your entire system.

Chiropractic care is about much more than symptom relief.

Chiropractors provide their patients with vital, preventative, and non-invasive health care through regular checks and adjustments. At the center of that specialized and trained care is an expert understanding of the science of vertebral subluxation.
 
A vertebral subluxation occurs when one or more vertebrae in the spine become misaligned, compressing spinal nerves and disturbing optimal nerve function. Chiropractic’s primary focus involves locating, analyzing and correcting these misalignments.

Vertebral Subluxation in the History of Chiropractic

The term “subluxation” has a long history in the healing practices, dating back to the time of Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician regarded as the “Father of Medicine.” The word refers to a dislocation or displacement and has been integral to chiropractic education since the very beginning. Chiropractic’s founder, D.D. Palmer, reasoned that even a slight misaligned vertebra could cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.

“Chiropractors have found in every disease that is supposed to be contagious, a cause in the spine,” wrote B.J. Palmer, the famous developer of chiropractic, in 1909. “In the spinal column, we will find a subluxation that corresponds to every type of disease.”
 
As chiropractic science is concerned with preserving and restoring health, it focuses particular attention on subluxations of the tiny bones of the spine. A vertebral subluxation happens when one or more of bones of the spine are out of position and compress spinal nerves. These nerves are the primary communication link between the body to the brain. Pressure on these nerves interferes with the communication between the body and the brain, which may cause organs, tissues, and cells not to function properly. Chiropractic identifies, analyzes and helps correct these disturbances to restore the body’s natural balance and the potential for self-healing.

How a Subluxation Interferes with Optimal Health

A subluxation interrupts the proper operation of the body’s nerve system, compromising the maintenance of optimal health. The human body consists of several interrelated systems, functioning with an innate intelligence to adapt to changes in our internal environment and the world around us. Every moment, impulses are delivered between the brain and the body’s 100 trillion cells to coordinate every movement and function. Impulses send this intricate information through the nerve connections in our spine. When vertebrae become subluxated because of any number of factors, interference results in the body’s communication process, negatively affecting functions and performance.

Short-term and regular chiropractic care have a number of benefits including:

  • spinal and extremity pain relief

  • headache relief

  • increased mobility and range of motion

  • decreased stiffness and muscular spasms

  • arthritic joint pain relief

  • increased joint health

  • increased performance and energy

  • increased sense of well-being and relaxation

  • increased balance and coordination

  • reduced degeneration and risk of injury

  • enhanced tissue healing

  • decreased tissue inflammation
