Information For New Patients

More visits were made to “alternative” healthcare providers last year than to traditional providers. Does that still mean its an alternative?

We’ve put more information here for everyone, just in case you have some questions about your care here.

There’s nothing mysterious about chiropractic care. It’s a natural method of health care that focuses on correcting the cause of physical problems, rather than just treating the symptoms. All the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health. They are all controlled by the nervous system, and your spine is the lifeline of this system. When there is interference in your lifeline, you experience ill health and discomfort. Chiropractic care is medical treatment for the connection between your spinal structure and your overall health.

Chiropractic care is based on the fact that your body is able to heal itself when your spine and nervous system are healthy and functioning normally. Chiropractic care is the practice of removing points of interference in your nervous system so your body can heal. These points of interference are called subluxations.

Kenmore’s Dynamic Chiropractic provides chiropractic adjustments to help your body heal from subluxations.

How chiropractic adjustments work to remove interference in your spine: Dr. Carr is specially trained to first carefully diagnose and locate interferences, or subluxations, in your spine. A chiropractic adjustment is the art of applying a
specific force in a precise direction to a joint that is subluxated, “locked up,”, “fixated”, “stuck”, or not moving properly. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and natural procedure.

Dr. Carr of Kenmore’s Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic is a specialist in locating and correcting vertebral subluxations.

    Causes of Subluxations

    Subluxations occur when an individual does not have their spine regulary checked from birth. They are most commonly caused by:

    – car and auto accidents
    – work injuries
    – slips and falls
    – poor posture
    – poor sleeping habits
    – sports impacts
    – strenuous exercise
    – childhood falls
    – the birth process

    Effects of Subluxations

    Subluxations cause dangerous stress to the spinal cord and the delicate nerves as they exit the spine between the spinal bones. This causes irritation to the nerves and causes increased susceptibility to disease and disorder in the body, usually resulting in uncomfortable common health complaints.

    How do I know if I have a Subluxation?

    Unfortunately subluxations are most often painless and often go undetected for years. One can’t always tell if there is a subluxation; a subluxation is sort of like a dental cavity, in that you may have it for a long time before symptoms appear. That’s why periodic spinal checkups are so important. Dr. Carr provides diagnosis and treament of subluxations as well as periodic systemic checkups and wellness evaluations.

    Every new patient at New Patient’s Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic recieves a thorough spinal checkup.

    What Can I Expect on My First Visit to a Chiropractor?

    The first thing a chiropractor will do is ask you about the health complaints about which you are chiefly concerned. The DC will also ask about your family history, dietary habits, other care you may have had (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.), your job, and other questions designed to help determine the nature of your illness and the best way to go about treating the problem. A physical examination will be performed in accordance with your DCR
