Physical (Body) Stress

Chronic Neck PainAt 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.

Check Out What Our Patients Have to Say

  • "I began to develop symptoms of what would eventually turn into a frozen shoulder. I tried time off, pain medications, physical therapy, and threats of surgery - all to no avail. Then, my naturopath recommended that I see Dr. Bobby Jones. I began treatment in November and began to see improvement almost immediately. I am no longer being woken by pain and I have almost no pain during the day; my range of motion has dramatically increased. I am confident that I will regain full use of my shoulder without surgery, thanks to Dr. Jones. He is highly skilled, extremely intuitive, and up-to-date on all the latest techniques. It has been a joy to work with him and I plan to be a patient of his indefinitely."
  • "Until I found Dr. Bobby Jones, no one seemed to be able to give me a reasonable diagnosis or treatment that could help reverse my escalating difficulties in walking. Dr. Bobby Jones' adjustments have kept me from going back to using an electric scooter, which I had been dependent on for a year! Dr. Jones first adjusted my pelvis and after only one treatment, I was able to walk through the airports almost pain-free, without having to use the wheelchair service. Six months later, I am still walking well, gaining muscle strength and physical endurance because of Bobby's expertise and willing partnership in my quest for health. I'm even able to go dancing sometimes! As a chiropractic physician, Dr. Jones not only has good skills, but also has a wonderful, caring "can do" approach to problems his patients face. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
  • "I have been going to see Dr. Bobby Jones for almost three years now. My doctor referred me to him when I hurt my lower back at work; it hurt to walk. I was nervous to go see a chiropractor - the thought of someone cracking my bones freaked me out. I went to see him and immediately felt that I was important, and that it was important to Dr. Jones that I got better, and quickly. I explained to Dr. Jones my hesitations about this type of treatment and also what was hurting. He listened and he told me about the Activator Method and how he could do the adjustments without it being as "scary" as the manual adjustment. I felt so much better after my first adjustment. I could walk without incredible pain. Dr. Jones has gone above and beyond any expectation I have had for a health care provider. I feel very at ease having Dr. Jones do my adjustments. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. I have walked in there having a bad day and left with a huge smile on my face. I highly recommend Dr. Jones!"
  • "My husband has had acid reflux for four years. He takes an over the counter drug, with many side affects. Dr. Jones suggested he take enzymes instead. It has been two weeks and he has no more acid reflux. It is unbelievable. He can't believe it was that easy."
  • "Thank you so much for the comfort and relief. Not only do I love coming to your office for restoration of physical health, but also for the friendship, community, and emotional health. The difference after just one visit is amazing. Thank you so much for everything - I look forward to my next visit."
