A thorough history is taken to determine the various factors that cause or contribute to your current health status while understanding the potential challenges. For chronic health challenges can require a detailed history to understand the full picture of how your current health status developed. We look at diet, physical activity, family stress, job stress, environmental factors and more.
Palpation, Range of Motion, Orthopedic and Neurologic Testing is used to determine challenged body systems as needed..
Muscle Response Testing
Functional Neurological Muscle Testing is used to determine Structural (body), Biochemical (nutritional & toxic) and Emotional (physiological stress aspects) factors affecting the body.
Blood Testing to reveal intracellular (inside the cell) vitamin and mineral deficiencies. These tests covers strengths and weaknesses that have existed six to twelve months or more. This is similar to the hemoglobin A1c test which is a 3 months status of a person's sugar handling. Standard lab tests may be utilized as well.

HEALTH CARE AS WE SEE IT
The premise behind Chiropractic (established in 1895) is a properly functioning nervous system helps us function at our best. The Nerve System is comprised of our brain and the nerves traveling into our neck and down our arms, into our mid-back traveling to our chest, into our low back and abdominal organs and then down our legs. An injury can cause muscle spasms, altered nerve energy, changes in our organ function and even stress. Additionally, there is a fluid nerve system which functions through hormones, neuropeptides and other specialized information molecules.
Chiropractic Doctors evaluate the spine for subluxations. Subluxations are vertebrae in the spine that have altered positions, motions and neurological functions. Subluxations occur due to trauma, toxins, nutritional deficiencies and stress. Chiropractic Adjustments restore health to the spine so the body can heal.itself.
Nutritional Building Blocks
Deficiencies in the diet can cause slow function, weakness, tension, low energy levels, a poorly function immune system, bone changes and more. By evaluating your diet and making the necessary dietary changes, your body will be stronger, healthier and functioning optimally.
Many people look at the body similar to a telephone pole, strong and unchangeable; however, it is more like a tree, changeable with the conditions of its environment. Certain Vitamin deficiencies can cause changes in the bones, even in children, such as arthritis.
This amazing process has assisted many to manage their dietary desires and take control of their food choices. We have seen years of cravings eliminated or greatly reduced in minutes. This technique is a great assist for weight loss, addiction, sugar handling or simply feeling better.
Everyone would agree air pollution is not healthy for the body. But what about cleaning solutions, hair dye, heavy metals and thousands of other chemicals. Removing toxins will help create a healthier environment.
Stress is inevitable. Whether it is deadlines at work, family members at odds with each other, chronic illness, a fight with a friend, car breaks down, stress eating or balancing all of these, how we respond and our attitude toward all of this is very important.
Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments
Standard Chiropractic Adjustments reduce subluxation while enhancing the Nerve System. With an enhanced Nerve System, the body can heal itself. This in turn will provide decreased pain, increased range of motion, an enhanced immune system, improved cognitive function. For those in pain, it can be greatly reduced in as little as one visit. For those without pain, it can increase function. For those on maintenance, it reduces overall tension in the body
Applied Kinesiology (AK)
AK is an integrative approach to health care, which draws together the core elements of complement therapies, creating a more unified approach to the diagnosis and treatment of functional illness. AK uses functional assessment measures such as posture and gait analysis, manual muscle testing as functional neurologic evaluation, range of motion, static palpation, and motion analysis. These assessments are used in conjunction with standard methods of diagnosis, such as: clinical history, physical examination findings, laboratory tests, and instrumentation to develop a clinical impression of the unique physiologic condition of each patient including an impression of the patient's functional physiologic status. When appropriate, this clinical impression is used as a guide to the application of conservative physiologic therapeutics.
The origin of contemporary applied kinesiology is traced to 1964 when George G. Goodheart Jr., D.C., first observed that in the absence of congenital or pathologic anomaly, postural distortion is often associated with muscles that fail to meet the demands of muscle tests designed to maximally isolate specific muscles. He observed that tender nodules were frequently palpable within the origin and/or insertion of the tested muscle. Digital manipulation of these areas of apparent muscle dysfunction improved both postural balance and the outcome of manual muscle tests. Goodheart and others have since observed that many conservative treatment methods improve neuromuscular function as perceived by manual muscle testing. These treatment methods have become the fundamental applied kinesiology approach to therapy. Included in the A.K. approach are specific joint manipulation or mobilization, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian therapy, clinical nutrition, dietary management, and various reflex: procedures. With expanding investigation there has been continued amplification and modification of the treatment procedures. Although many treatment techniques incorporated into applied kinesiology were preexisting. Many new methods have been developed within the discipline itself. (http://www.icakusa.com/as of 9.5.2015)

Good Nutrition for our body is using the best fuel available. Sometimes even with our best efforts, specific nutrients may be needed for better health and optimal function. This can come in the form of a supplement, fresh homemade vegetable juice and blended soups to increase the vitality of individuals who partake of them.
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
NET was founded and developed by Drs. Scott and Deb Walker, DC. This powerful, yet gentle process identifies and reconciles unresolved stress in a unique way. While physical activity and a healthy diet helps reduce stress and keep us at a stronger, more resilient physiological advantage, NET assists with past and ongoing triggers in the stress response. Having worked with many mental health professionals as clients, they see the value with NET in reducing stress. The following are the 8 Main Dynamics related to the understanding of Neuro Emotional Technique:
1) Emotions are physiological
2) Pavlovian Responses
3) Emotion/Meridian Correlation
4) Repetition Compulsion
5) Memory and Physiology
6) Functional Muscle Testing
7) Semantic Responses
8) Like Cure Like

Homeopathy (established in 1795) is based on two principles: 1) substances in minutes amounts can clear up symptoms caused by larger concentrations and 2) like cures like.
If you take an onion and cut it up, you may experience watering eyes and a runny nose. A homeopathic preparation of onion may alleviate these same symptoms even if caused by an environmental sensitivity or allergies such as hay fever.
Homeopathic preparations are highly diluted and work by gently activating the body's healing systems. Acute conditions can start clearing up in minutes whereas as chronic conditions may take more time.
