When the word, “Chiropractic” comes to mind, what do you think of?
So many think of the “pop” or “crack”.
Maybe some think of the adjustment. Meaning, they see it as more of a precision tuning, as our care is about being precise with the changes we make to an an individual’s nervous system.
However, we think different than all of these.
When you really understand what we do at Adjust, you will see that Chiropractic is so much more.
We think about all the work that goes into performing the adjustment. Not just the schooling, the studying, the measuring and the time, we think about the passion of what we do.
We hope that if you have ever been under the care of our clinic, you too understand that we are passionate about helping you live the life of your dreams, without limitation. We do this by not taking out job lightly.
This is serious business, because your health is your most important asset.
This is why we have taken the past few weeks to tighten up our delivery of care.
We have just reinvested in even better technology to serve you. After-all, it’s money well spent, because it will help you get the best results possible.
The technology is only helpful if it helps get you results, and so we will be monitoring it, as we do all of our upgrades.
If you are under care, or return to care shortly, during the next couple of months, you will see the scanning reports and graphs look different, this is because the upgrades enhance the depth of knowledge we are able to receive about your nervous system. There will be a different portal to retrieve your results, and the technology in the office will utilize I-pads, so we can be a little more mobile if need.
We look forward to continuing to serve you now more than ever.

Our Intention is for 2020 to be your healthiest year yet.
We do not guess about how healthy you are, we measure it. This year, in fact, we have stepped up our game once again and invested in even better technology to properly assess your nervous system. This system is on it’s way, and we expect it to help us continue to get the results your body deserves.
The reason we don’t go cheap with our technology, is simple:
To get results.
Of course this year has started off rocky..
It has been a stressful start to the year. This exactly why we have stepped up our game:
- Stress causes increase consumption (food and/or alcohol).
- This leads to poor sleep.
- This lowers the immune system.
- Your ability to adapt to stress is, in a big part, part of your immune system.
So, what can we do?
- Get real data on how your nervous system is working.
- Get the problem corrected with an adjustment performed precisely.
- See the results of this care in your energy, your quality sleep, and the strength and increased ability to adapt to stress.
- Do what it takes to hold the adjustment:
- eat well
- think well

I just recently experienced my first fracture. I was diagnosed with an avulsion fracture in my ankle. An avulsion fracture is where the tip of a bone (where ligaments attach) pulls off in an extreme stretch in the area. Left behind is a piece of bone that can sometimes cause issues, depending what happens to it. I was informed that if I treated it properly, it would likely heal on its own. (Of course that is one of the functions of innate intelligence) Healing on its own is usually seen as the bone re-attaching to where it broke off, or re-absorbing into the body.
Isn’t it amazing to see a little glimpse of what the intelligence of the body can do? Of course, I had a job to do as well:
It wasn’t easy, mentally, to do the following for 4 1/2 weeks:
- Non-wight bearing for 21 days
- Wear a boot 24 hours a day to keep the ankle at 90 degrees.
- Ice 20 minutes at a time 5-7 times a day or more.
- Use a scooter or crutches to get around.
- Take a nutritional protocol.
However, Innate intelligence had the largest task: To heal. The individual supports the processes. I have no idea how innate intelligence re-absorbs the bone in 4 weeks. Living creatures, like myself, do not need to know how to grow bone, re-absorb bone, or heal the area. Our job is simply to support the healing process in the best way possible. In my case, give it time to heal and follow some pretty simple processes.

Ever heard this:
You can never have too much of a good thing.
Of course there are always exceptions to rules that have words in them like, “never”. However, I would definitely say this is true for a proper chiropractic adjustment. I decided to briefly write about this today because I have heard patients say:
I don’t want to get over-adjusted.
Well, that is impossible, if you are a patient in our office. Here’s how it works in 3 simple steps:
- We look for a subluxation in your spine. This is where the nerve system is altered due to the position of the spine.
- If the subluxation is present, we adjust it.
- If the subluxation is not found, you do not get adjusted and we change your frequency of care.
The goal of our office is for you to be clear. Clear of subluxation, of course. Once you are clear, we keep you clear for as long as possible. The longer you hold the precise adjustment we administer in our office, the longer your nerve system is able to work at 100%. Given enough time with a clear nerve system, you will heal and be restored to health.
So, don’t worry about being over-adjusted at Adjust. We check every single visit for subluxation.

Why do we expect more out of your health?
We have seen some pretty great transformations in some pretty train-wrecked people, thats why.
Imagine if you had a crew show up to build your home. This crew had some of the best foundation workers, concrete preparers, sheetrock guys, and roofers. They showed up with not only the fastest crew, but a crew that could make the most precise cuts for your tile work. Not only did the best crew sho, but this crew showed up with all the tools for the job. The shovels, hammers, levels and even the power tools. The crew was really on the ball. But, there was just one problem: Everyone showed up but one guy, the guy with the plans.
Unfortunately, even the best crew with the best tools cannot build the simplest home without the instructions.
Your nerve system communicates the instructions. If you have all the pieces (organs, glands, and tissues), yet you have poor communications of the work to be done then the outcome will be less than desirable. This is where chiropractic comes in.
