We’ll put modern technology and old-fashioned care to work for you:
Modern technology has made treatment faster and more effective than it was years ago. That’s why we have the most up-to-date techniques and methods available. We utilize chiropractic procedures to restructure your spine( spinal-vertebral subluxation) to its most optimum and stable position. When you visit us, our first goal is to relieve pain or symptoms. But the overall goal is to restore health. Good health doesn’t come in a pill or with a knife.
Chiropractic is the largest drug-free healing profession in America:
The reason for this explosive growth is that it is effective and it just makes sense. The spine houses and protects the spinal cord, which is the “switchboard” through which nerve impulses are transmitted from the brain to all parts of the body. Misaligned vertebrae (spinal vertebrae subluxations) interfere with these transmissions, often causing pain or discomfort. Spinal manipulation by well-trained chiropractors removes that interference, thus removing the cause of pain and malfunction.
Treatment that works for your family:
We’ll give your whole family, including your kids, complete care. Spinal health maintenance should begin at childhood. Dr. Nunez and his associates are skilled at finding your underlying spinal subluxation and making sure they don’t return. Every patient we have is different. We treat thousands of men, women, young adults and children of all ages. Many times their problems are similar, but their lifestyles and circumstances almost always differ. We address difficult and painful health problems by designing individual treatment programs. We incorporate proven chiropractic principles, but allow for individual characteristics. The result! A very high rate of success.
The Goal of the Adjustment:
The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to correct the spinal subluxations detected during the examination. To do that, the doctor applies pressure to the bone and “unlocks” it from its improper position. The bone will then be free to align itself correctly. Many people think that the chiropractor forces a vertebra back into its “proper” place. But only the individual’s own Innate Intelligence knows for sure what the proper place for each bone is. The role of the chiropractor is to free up the vertebrae. Then, the body can do its job and put them back in the correct position. Unfortunately, the muscles connected to subluxated vertebrae get used to their positions and have a tendency to pull the bone back out of place. It may take several adjustments before the adjustment “holds,” and the bone settles into its proper alignment.
Positive effects of a chiropractic adjustment from a chiropractor:
Objective effects of a chiropractic adjustment have been investigated and reported. More specifically, a single chiropractic adjustment produces both sensory and motor effects as well as sympathetic nervous system effects.
The sensory and motor effects of a chiropractic manipulation include:
- Increased joint ROM in all 3 planes and reduction of pain
- Increased skin pain tolerance level
- Increased paraspinal muscle pressure pain tolerance
- Reduced muscle electrical activity and tension
Sympathetic nervous system effects of a chiropractic manipulation include:
- Increased blood flow and distal skin temperature (fingertips)
- Blood pressure reduction
Blood chemistry changes after a chiropractic manipulation include:
- Increased secretion of melatonin
- Increased plasma beta endorphin levels
- Elevation of Substance P and enhanced neutrophil respiratory burst
- Pupillary diameter changes .
