How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic is designed to restore normal function to your body.  Every single organ, muscle, and structure in the body is controlled by the nervous system.  By removing interference to the nervous system through a specific chiropractic adjustment, the body is able to function the way God intended it to.

What is a subluxation?

Why does my child need a chiropractor?

Not all adjustments require a twist, pop and crunch.  Dr. Camille uses a very gentle approach to work with your body.  Sometimes it may be uncomfortable, but it should never hurt.  Changing the neurological patterns in your body is hard work, and you may feel sore after your adjustment.  Your body will need time to adapt and change.  In addition to adjusting the spine, Dr. Camille may also work on your organs and the bones of your head.

What is an adjustment like?

Pain is the last symptom to come and the first symptom to leave.  For this reason, many patients experience relief from pain very quickly.  However, just because your pain is gone, does not mean that the root cause of your pain is resolved.  Dr. Camille works with your body to promote health from within, which occurs long after pain has resolved.

How soon will I feel better?

We focus on true correction and work to retrain the nervous system.  Dr. Camille will check your spine frequently until your neurological and misalignment patterns change.  We highly recommend that you continue to return for wellness care to maintain your health and wellness.  This way you can avoid flair ups and the need to start care from the beginning.
