Chiropractic has been around since 1895 (oddly enough the same year X-rays were discovered) when a deaf person's hearing was restored by moving a vertebra back into its proper position. At that time it was wrongly thought to be a cure for deafness. After decades of research and many more advances in modern medicine it was discovered that nerves control every system in the body and when nerves become impinged (think of a kink in a garden hose) the organ or system that the nerve travels to does not perform normally.
Nerves exit from the main spinal cord at every vertebral segment and run to every organ and system in your body from there. The purpose of chiropractic is to re-align the spine so the nerves can flow freely and your body can perform like you were supposed to.
How do you know if you have a misalignment of the spine causing nerve interference (also known as a subluxation)? There are usually 5 phases: 1. Decrease in range of motion 2.Weakness 3. Numbness 4. Tingling 5. Pain
Pain is usually the LAST thing to show up when you have nerve interference. Just like a dentist checks for cavities, a chiropractor checks for subluxations. Turn your power back on today!
Neuromuscular therapy provides alignment based massage therapy and bodywork techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, compression, traction, stretching to release chronic contracted muscles, bringing the body and posture back into alignment, enhancing the over all health and wellness of the client.
Reasons why people suffer from pain:
Lack of blood supply to the area.
Trigger points which are sensitive areas within very tight muscles, which can refer pain to another location.
Nerve compression - excessive pressure on a nerve.
Poor posture due to working, sleeping or sporting conditions
The body sometimes uses muscle in the incorrect sequence. Often when an injury occurs the individual begins to hold their body in a particular way, perhaps to ease their pain or to protect themselves from further injury. However this can lead to more problems at a later stage. This is called compensations, if left untreated, severe postural distortions will occur.

There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can without a doubt, help manage stress
