Taking Care of Your Health With….Chiropractic
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if your body is working properly. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine, called a “subluxation,” can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments can help improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.
Is chiropractic scientific?
Chiropractic is a science, art, and philosophy. It’s a scientific fact that your brain and nervous system control every cell, tissue and organ of your body. Research confirms that interference with the nervous system changes the way the body functions.
Nerve interferences are most common along the spine. Objective tests help locate these interferences, called subluxations, and precise chiropractic adjustments are designed to help correct or reduce them.

We are proud and fortunate to be able to offer our patients the PL 5000/Base Station cold low-level laser that is made by Erchonia Medical.

Lance has said that he credits most of his success to Dr. Spencer and the Laser. The Laser is used to enhance tissue recovery and advance/speed up injury healing time. 3LT™ or Low Level Laser Therapy promotes healing in many conditions, including chronic/acute pain, wound healing and other joint and neurological conditions. Erchonia’s lasers made history by becoming the first to receive FDA market clearance for the treatment of chronic pain, proven through two double blind IRB studies. The Erchonia Lasers are the most advanced lasers on the market. Combined with Chiropractic Care, patients can lead healthy, active lifestyles without debilitating pain.
