Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care focuses on the natural wellbeing and best health of our patients. Working with the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, we can make a positive impact on your health.

Our bodies need to be in alignment to function properly. If you’re not moving like you should, your spine could be misaligned; we can help!

Why Chiropractic?

Woman getting back adjustmentWhen joints get injured and knocked out of place, they get stuck. Your muscles now have to learn how to hold the joints in a new position. Short term, that’s ok. Over time, tissues decay, and the out-of-position bone starts to grind. Damage to bone, cartilage, ligaments and discs occurs which then irritates the nerve.

Most people assume pain starts as soon as the joint is compromised. Actually, it is a slow, gradual process that causes health issues first. Because of the irritation, your nerves don’t function right which diminishes input to the area it services i.e., stomach, leg muscles, sinus etc.

You assume you’re just getting sick when in reality, your injured joint is to blame. When your health, mobility and function is affected enough, pain starts and you come to our office for help.

Restoring Balance with Focused Care

Pain is what brings most patients to Beatrice Family Chiropractic. Dr. RJ will let you know which nerve is involved and why. Using a cause-and-effect chart, he is able to show patients how conditions can cause pain in unrelated areas of the body.

Chronic nerve irritation affects the health of your tissues. Dr. RJ helps with your pain, helps to get the joint moving properly again and helps you get healthy. Not just today, but for the long-term.

Once the pressure on the nerve is removed, and the subluxation corrected through treatment, patients feel and function better. Chiropractic is not just for correcting problems; it’s for your health. We help give your body the best opportunity to stay healthy.

Our Techniques

We may use several techniques in the practice, and your care will be dependent on your unique needs. Spinal manipulation techniques are the most common methods to realign the spinal vertebrae. Our primary method of adjustment is the Gonstead Technique.

Gonstead is based on a basic biomechanical principle of physics regarding the importance of a proper foundation. In your body, that’s the pelvic girdle. When it’s level, your spinal column is in balance and stable. When vertebrae move out of position, and your body is not able to adjust itself, health issues arise.

Gonstead is an analytical way to approach spine imbalances. It questions how it is misaligned, in what direction is it not moving and how can I move it into the proper direction? Our focus is to get the spine moving correctly so it stops irritating the tissues.

Simply put, Gonstead says, “Find the subluxation, accept it where you find it, correct it and leave it alone.”

Other chiropractic techniques used in our practice include:

  • Diversified method
  • Thomson Drop
  • Activator Technique
