you the crisis care type, living with a condition until
the pain becomes so unbearable that you are finally
forced to seek help?
you the condition care
type, who waits until the first
signs of discomfort and dysfunction reappear, then
get 4 or 5 visits to deal with the "condition"?
you the maintenance care
type, who employs daily strategies
and regular chiropractic adjustments in order to help
prevent pain, reduce the risk of injury, and stay healthy
on a continual basis?
All Three Types Of People
First, chiropractic is the art, science and philosophy of adjusting
the vertebrae of the spinal column in order to restore and maintain
normal nerve flow, which in turn, assists the body with normal
health and healing.
Secondly, the origin of many common joint
conditions often lies in the habitual use of your muscle groups
within a small and abnormally restricted range of motion,
leading to abnormal stress patterns and chronic changes. Imbalanced
muscles and fascia (connective tissue) lead to poor posture
and lower energy potentials. Muscles which are chronically
contracted and abnormally stretched are weaker and more susceptible
to injury than their healthy counterparts. It is these imbalanced
muscles which influence your vertebrae to move out of alignment.
Research has shown that manipulative pressure and stretching
are the most effective ways of modifying energy potentials
of abnormal muscle and fascia.
The chiropractic care employed by Dr.
Griffes is the Diversified Technique, along with the non-force
use of wedges and manual traction to adjust the vertebrae. He
also supplements the chiropractic care with deep-tissue bodywork,
movement education, and exercise prescription.
