At Blackbird Natural Health, Dr. Bobby Jones use gentle instrument chiropractic adjustments to balance both body and brain function.
Let’s face it. Most people first look for a chiropractor because we are experts in addressing physical pain by reducing the physical stress on the body without the use of drugs.
In acute cases, like automobile accidents or other traumas, physical injuries are common occurrences and respond well to chiropractic care as we affect the nervous system to reduce the pain while stimulating the healing response and keep the joints moving while their body heals.
But what about chronic pain? How does chiropractic help?
Most people see chiropractors to deal with chronic pain issues. Did you know pain is a symptom of nerve stress? It is actually an alarm your nervous system produces to alert you that it can no longer adapt to it’s current condition to function.
We often hear people say that they have a “bone out of place”. But do they? Most likely not. What they most often have is a chronic “inappropriate neurological response” to a stress. What that means is that over time they have developed a less efficient movement/posture patterns to compensate for old injuries. Since their body was never designed to physically compensate for long periods of time, overuse pain patterns develop.
The key is to find and address the old problems. We use a combination of various techniques to best determine the appropriate direction of care to release the current painful patterns as that we can uncover the problems that started it all. Then we can work on that. Our office uses gentle no-force adjusting techniques to reduce neurological stress without overwhelming the nervous system.
