The focus of Chiropractic is on the integrity of your nervous system, proper movement and posture.
It’s a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and the rest of your nerves control every aspect of your body. Hinder the vital nerve links between your brain and your body, and ill health can result. A common source of interference comes from the moving bones that encase the “information super highway” of your spinal cord. These subluxations can produce a variety of health problems.
Nerve pressure can cause numbness, weakness or the under-performance of organs and tissues. Spinal misalignment can cause nerve tissue to stretch, chafe or become irritated. This can distort nerve messages between your body and your brain. The result? Hyperactive organ function, high blood pressure or even pain. The medical approach puts chemicals into your bloodstream to artificially change the way your body works. Laxatives to speed up elimination. Antacids to reduce stomach acid. Besides the fatal mistakes, side effects and possible kidney damage, drugs often ignore the real cause of the problem.
Instead, the focus of chiropractic care is on the integrity of your nervous system. A thorough examination helps locate areas of nervous system compromise. The moving bones of the spine are common culprits. Then, specific chiropractic adjustments help reduce this interference. The intent is to restore your body’s ability to regulate and heal itself. Without drugs. Without surgery.
Chiropractic is simple. It’s natural. It honors the wisdom of your body. And it has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century.
Who can chiropractic help?
Improved nerve communications between the brain and the body can help everyone. So, if you have subluxations, you could likely benefit from chiropractic care. Modified adjusting approaches can help children, the elderly or those with special needs. Take a look at the different techniques we employ at the office.
How long will it take?
Since chiropractic care depends on the healing abilities of each patient, results are hard to predict. Every patient responds differently. Some detect changes in a few short days or weeks. Others may take weeks to months before showing progress. With our doctors you are in good hands. You will receive a specialized care program based on your specific needs and we will always keep you updated on your progress along the way.
Do Adjustments Hurt?
At Glow we use the most safe, gentle, and comfortable of chiropractic techniques to achieve our results. Many report a sense of well-being and calmness after an adjustment. Others feel increased ease of movement, better posture, and overall body comfort. The classical “twisting and cracking” is not necessary.
Will I have to go for the rest of my life?
We honor your choice of how much or how long you would like to receive the benefit of your chiropractic care. It is always up to you. Once health and energy is restored in their life, many patients opt to continue with some type of regular chiropractic checkups in order to maintain and optimize their well being.

What if my insurance company doesn’t cover chiropractic?
Insurance is designed for emergency situations. If you crash your car, or your house burns down, insurance is there to help out. It does not pay though for the well being of your car or house, like changing the oil or mopping your floors. Health insurance is no different. Having some insurance can be helpful of course, yet we will always base our recommendations for your health care on what you require to get well, not what your insurance happens to cover. Please ask about how we make chiropractic care affordable for just about anyone.
