What is a Subluxation?
When one or more spinal vertebrae(bones) becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position that bone or disk will irritate or compresses a spinal nerve. This is referred to in the Chiropractic profession as a subluxation. Subluxations can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma. When a vertebrae is subluxated, it begins to put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation interrupts the natural pathways. The messages sent from the brain to all areas of the body need to be clear in order to be completed properly.
How does Chiropractic care work in our office?
We look at Chiropractic as an overall way of viewing the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking. In the Chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem. While it's often perceived that the Chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Dr. Griffin not only helps with soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but is largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.
What does Dr. Griffin's specific Chiropractic adjustment do? Are they safe?
Specific spinal adjustments, refer to minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident. When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from and to the brain, we can't function at our peak. In giving an adjustment Dr. Griffin will apply pressure utilizing his hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort.
What can I expect from my visit to Dr. Griffin?
Going to the Dr. Griffin will be a new experience for many of people even if you have been to previous chiropractors. Maybe you've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and other health issues and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to Dr. Griffin will really be about getting to know him, his staff and discussing your history, current condition and goals.
What results can I expect from Dr. Griffin?
Dr. Griffin's philosophy on Chiropractic is based on the idea of removing imbalances both structural and neurological in an effort to allow our body to heal itself. For this to happen the network of nerves and signals from your brain, down your spinal cord, to the network of nerves must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption. Dr. Griffin with 34 years of caring for people has developed the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to. If you've ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it's very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a Subluxation/misalignment. While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for Subluxation/misalignment, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear. Dr. Griffin is always seeking advanced technology, continuing his education, and being at the forefront of the latest techniques. This is how he provide 's quality service that changes our patients lives.
