Family Care

Your family is OUR family too!

Chiropractic Care For All Ages

We provide chiropractic care to both young and old. Chiropractic care for the entire family in one place.

Everyone asks “is it safe to adjust babies?” The answer is YES ABSOLUTELY! The birthing process can be very traumatic for newborns. Sometimes newborns having trouble latching to breastfeed or only feed on one side. Colic and reflux are a couple others symptoms we see with newborns. By removing the nerve interference the body can heal and perform at its optimum potential allowing these newborns to fully thrive.

Children benefit from chiropractic care to help prevent common illnesses such as ear infections, asthma, bed-wetting, allergies and ADD/ADHD. While we don’t “treat” these conditions, we remove interference in the nervous system that allows the body to heal on it’s own and perform at it’s best.

Adults experience degenerative disc and joint disease, back pain, sciatica, numbness in the legs or arms, neck pain, headaches, TMJ disorder, GERD, High Blood Pressure and/or menstrual problems. These symptoms can be related back to spinal nerve roots that are misaligned causing interference in the nervous system functioning properly. Again we do not “treat” these illnesses we simply remove the interference so the body can heal and function at it’s best!

Family Care

Chiropractic care is a holistic, drug-free form of health care that thousands of people around the world use to get well and stay healthy naturally.

While most people choose chiropractic care for themselves as adults, many are beginning to learn of the health benefits for infants and children, as well.

Although chiropractic is extremely effective for pain relief, people continue to benefit from chiropractic care well after their aches and pains have diminished.

Prenatal Care

Prenatal care can be a great way to help with common ailments soon to be mothers suffer with such as, back pain, sciatic pain, headaches, sleeplessness and general sense of discomfort. Through chiropractic care Dr. Grainger can identify misalignments and imbalances in the spine causing this pain or discomfort. Research shows that sacral misalignments during pregnancy can lead to complications during pregnancy such as inadequate uterine function and mal-presentation of the baby (breech or transverse). We highly recommended chiropractic treatment during your pregnancy.

 

Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care include:

  • Increased comfort throughout pregnancy
  • Reduced back and pelvic pain
  • Lower risk of inductions
  • Less incidence of postpartum depression

Our Chiropractic Techniques

Activator Technique

Read More
The chiropractic method where the activator, a unique hand-held instrument, provides the adjustment by delivering a controlled, light, and fast thrust to the patient, without causing undue strain to the patient. This method is a great option for patients that do not like the “cracking, snapping, popping” of manual adjustments.

Diversified Technique

Read More
This technique is the form of high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust that is traditionally associated with chiropractic manual adjustments. For this method,chiropractors apply a short (low-amplitude), quick (high-velocity) thrust over restricted joints (one at a time) with the goal of restoring normal range of motion in the joint. The patient’s body is positioned in specific ways to optimize the adjustment of the spine.

Thompson Technique

Read More
This technique involves specialized treatment tables that have sections that drop a short distance during an HVLA thrust, with the premise that the dropping of the table piece facilitates the movement of the joint. This adjustment approach is sometimes used in addition to or, in place of, a more traditional diversified HVLA adjustment. Here, the traditional “cracking sound” may or may not occur and therefore this type of manipulation may also be considered a form of mobilization, or a gentle adjustment approach.

Logan Basic Technique

Read More
This technique is one which requires a very minimal force. In this technique, a light and constant pressure or force is applied against a specific contact point at the base of the spine, on the sacrum. Supplementary contacts at different points in the spine or along some particular muscles such as the piriformis can also be used. This technique basically uses the muscular structure, which surrounds the sacrum as a lever to balance the complete spinal structure.

Cox Flexion / Distraction Technique

Read More
This technique is used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine. It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges and disc herniations.

Spinal Decompression

Read More
Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several theoretical benefits including: Create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is chiropractic care?

There’s nothing mysterious about chiropractic care. It’s a natural method of healthcare that focuses on treating the causes of physical problems, rather than just treating the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise. With a normally functioning spine and healthy nerve system, your body is better able to heal itself. That’s because your spine is the lifeline of your nervous system. It controls feeling, movement, and all function through your body.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is subluxated, “locked up,” or not moving properly. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to eliminate interference to the nervous system, improving spinal function and overall health.

Can I tell if I have a subluxation?

Not always. A subluxation is like a dental cavity—you may have it for a long time before symptoms appear. That’s why periodic spinal checkups are so important. Although it may be possible to know you have a subluxation, it is rarely possible to be sure you don’t. Regular spinal checkups are always a good idea, and they promote good health from the inside out.

Is chiropractic safe?

Yes. Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative and natural approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs. As proof, one merely has to compare malpractice rates between chiropractors and other healthcare professionals. Chiropractors’ malpractice premiums are a small fraction of those for medical doctors.

Why do chiropractors take x-rays?

Chiropractors take X-rays to reveal the internal structure and alignment of the spine. We are also concerned about underlying disease processes and disorders of the spine such as spinal deterioration, arthritis of the spine, abnormal development, bone spurs, disc disorders, tumors and spinal curvature. X-rays also provide a blueprint for correcting the spine back to optimal health and alignment.

Do children need chiropractic care?

Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for vertebral subluxation. Naturally, chiropractic adjusting procedures are adapted for the child’s spine. Many childhood health complaints that are brushed off can be traced to the spine. Health problems that emerge in adulthood could often be prevented by having your children’s spine checked by a chiropractor early. Many parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and are healthier than their peers.
