Much of our health care system relies on trying to label and treat symptoms through medication, pain based modalities, or surgery. We find that this is more of a "sick care" system and being caught in the cycle usually doesn't lead one to true health.
Health: a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. -World Health Organization
Health and function come from within. They come from the body's own wisdom and intelligence. You don't have to learn to heal a scrape, a bruise, or a cold. Your body is amazing! In the same moment your brain is reading these words it is also sending out thousands of transmissions to keep your heart beating, your lungs moving, your food digesting, wounds healing and so on. The amazing thing is that it continues to control and coordinate everything without you having to thinking about it.
Issues within the spinal system can start to limit the nervous systems ability to create health and wellbeing in the body. We can start to see dysfunctions, aches, pains, immune deficiencies, autoimmune issues, migraines, headaches, digestive issues etc. Chiropractic helps to eliminate the spinal issues that can lead to interference in the nervous system.
We strive to help restore the function of your nervous system and allow your body return to proper function and health.
Why Principled Chiropractic?
"There is a vast difference between treating the effects and adjusting the cause"

Chiropractic for the little ones
We believe that every person should have the best chance at being happy and healthy. It is so important to make sure your little ones have a properly aligned spine so that their nervous system is fully functional.
The birthing process is physically stressful on a newborn and misalignments of the upper neck are often present after birth. The added stress on a childs' nervous system can often lead to increased symptoms and dysfunctions.
We commonly see and have great results with colic, digestive issues, ear infections, nursing problems, asthma and allergies to name a few. Remember we're not treating a symptom, we're helping the body to function properly and create health from within!
What if my child is already healthy? That is fantastic! Our gentle and specific care works alongside your childs inborn intelligence to maintain that optimal health.
Children and Teens
We all know how hard kids are on their bodies. Falling out of trees, sleigh riding into fences, hitting each other with sticks. It's important to make sure that they maintain a healthy spine and nervous system throughout their lives as many times we may not see the consequences until years later. They often deal with contact sports, increased stress from school, sitting for extended amounts of time, amongst other things.
Some young ones may already be dealing with symptoms like headaches, asthma, allergies, ear infections, repetitive sickness, depression, anxiety, attention issues just to name a few. These can be a sign that your child's body isn't functioning and adapting as it should be.
It just makes sense that we want mom to be functioning and feeling her best since she is carrying a little one. The better she can handle the stress of life the easier the journey.
Many women under regular chiropractic care experience reduced symptoms throughout pregnancy. Less fatigue, less morning sickness, less low back pain and pelvic pain.
Every pregnancy is different, but many experience reduced labor times and labor pain compared to those not under care.
We also utilize a gentle and specific technique called Websters that focuses on aligning the pelvis as well as giving the baby enough space in the womb to position itself correctly for birth. In many cases it can help with breech positions.
Chiropractic isn't about treating pain or symptoms. It's about creating optimal performance of the body's control and command system, the nervous system. Thats why thousands of athletes around the world utilize chiropractic on a regular basis to gain the competitive edge on their competition while also helping to stay healthier and recover quicker. You'll find that most professional teams have at least one chiropractor on staff in todays world.

"I only wish I had tried chiropractic a few years ago when I first started having back pain and maybe surgery would never have happened. I feel it helps me recover sooner and prevent injuries. It's about prevention so your body can function at optimum health."
