"How a body functions and operates physically, mentally and spiritually and not merely the absence of disease.”

What about Healing?
“The quality of healing is directly proportional to the functional capabilities of the nervous system to send and receive nerve messages.”
-Journal of Neurological Sciences
Taking a Natural Systemic Approach to Healing
Chiropractic is both an art and a science of looking at the human body as a whole. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. Think of when you cut your finger, it automatically starts the process of healing itself by creating a scab and knitting the tissues back together with only a bandage to help keep it clean while it does its job.
Your body is controlled by your brain. The spinal cord and vast network of nerves carry its messages to all the organs and cells in your body. And just as important is that these organ and cells give vital feedback information back to the brain along the same network to coordinate proper system regulation. When this system is not functioning at its peak, your body’s overall health and performance suffers.
In the chiropractic world, we don’t use drugs to treat our patients. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as bandaids to treat symptoms rather than treating the source of the problem. Chiropractic treats the problem naturally and in turn prompts the body to heal itself.
Experience Neurologically Based Chiropractic
Our exams are designed to evaluate your brain function and overall health. We use state of the art technology to identify the root cause of any dysfunction. We will perform a physical exam along with a Stress Response Evaluation (SRE), which allows us to see exactly how your brain is functioning on a daily basis and determine specifically how long and what type of adjustments are needed. We understand the importance of proper brain functioning for your health. We are truly in the business of stopping “bad brain habits” and allowing your brain as well as your body to achieve peak performance.
Patient care plans typically include light force, neurologically based Chiropractic adjustments. Our adjustments have been proven to improve brain function and provide brain balance. Our techniques are both instrument based and manual/hands on, which are specially chosen for each patient based on their neurological needs. Most of our patients enjoy the fact that our adjustments do not involve “popping, twisting, or snapping” but allows a gentle yet specific adjustment of the entire vertebral column, discs, hips, TMJ, shoulders, knees, feet, cranial bones, ribs, and/or anything else that needs attention. Patients are either standing, sitting and/or laying while getting adjusted in order to best bring up areas of nerve stress. These adjustments are the best of the many tools in Dr. Jones’ toolkit in improving brain function and returning you to optimal health and wellness.
In our office, we address the three major stresses that affect your health. First we address physical stress, not only accidents or physical injury but the day to day physical stress of sitting at a computer or in a desk at school or simply dealing with the gravitational pull of the earth on your body. Second we deal with chemical and toxic stress -think about what's in the water you drink and the air you breathe, let alone the chemicals in your food. And lastly emotional stress as our emotions affect our brain function and health.
Dr. Jones will explain everything to you in terms you can understand, making it easy to understand what is the underlying cause of your problem and how it can be helped with neurologically based chiropractic care.
