ADULT CARE

Long Term Wellness Care

Chiropractic care is focused on keeping the spine and nervous system balanced and working optimally. Misalignments in the spinal column lead to muscle imbalances, postural changes, unequal weight distribution, and slower reaction times. 

 

Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue and organ function in your body. If your nervous system isn't healthy, the body does not function well and cannot heal properly. When you get adjusted regularly, you reduce stress on the nervous system, which helps the body heal and restore normal function. Some studies have found long-term chiropractic care can reduce free radical damage and help slow the aging process.

Dr. Tolbert takes the time to understand the root of your problem in order to provide the best and most effective treatment. Chiropractic care will be tailored to the individual patient, restoring normal range of motion in your spine as well as strengthening the surrounding muscles/ligaments/tendons to support and stabilize for proper body functioning.

Many adults seek chiropractic care for a "tune up" or if they suffer from early degenerative joint disease, postural stress, arthritis, episodic neck/lower back pain, or chronic pain from car accidents or sport's injuries. 

You do not have to be in pain to be adjusted, Degeneration Phase 1 is commonly painless. Just as your car needs regular maintenance, so does your spine. You only get one spine so take care of it, avoid degeneration, and give your body the longevity it deserves. 

 

Phases of Degeneration

You spine degenerations in stages (phases)

Degeneration Phase 1

First your spine loses its normal balance. There may be a loss of normal spinal curves. Your nerves may be affected and the vital life energy that flows over them is interfered with. Also your joints, discs, nerves and posture are stressed and age more quickly. Surprisingly, there may be no pain other than occasional minor discomfort. Also present may be a slight lessening of energy and slight height loss. Response to spinal care is generally good.

Degeneration Phase 2

Here there is a much greater degree of decay, disc narrowing and bone spurs (deformations); postural changes are much worse. This condition is very common (by age 40, 80% of males and 76% of females exhibit moderate disc degeneration). Spinal canal narrowing or stenosis may occur. This phase is characterized by more common aches and pains, fatigue, and a diminished ability to cope with stress. Height continues to decrease. With chiropractic care significant improvement is possible.

Degeneration Phase 3

Here there are more postural imbalances, increased nerve damage, permanent scar tissue and advanced bone deformation. Physical and/or mental weakness or disability begin. Also found in this phase are permanent loss of height and loss of energy. With care some reversal is possible.

Degeneration Phase 4

This is the most advanced stage of subluxation degeneration. The postural imbalance is severe and motion is limited. There is severe nerve damage, permanent scar tissue is formed and the bones may begin to fuse. In this phase we find pain, various degrees of physical or mental disability, and continued loss of energy and height. By now the condition is considered irreversible, although chiropractic may give some symptomatic relief.
