Family Chiropractic Care

Allgood Chiropractic and Family Wellness Center is a great place for families in our community. With chiropractic, you can ensure your nervous system is operating at its highest potential. It might be strange to learn that chiropractors aren’t just about back and neck pain. Learn more about the benefits of chiropractic!

Your Master Control System

Your brain controls your entire body and every function that occurs. Your heart beating, blood flowing and every cell in the body are all under the brain’s control. The way it does so is via the spinal cord. Your brain sends signals down the spinal cord, then out to the nerves that go through your whole body.

If an area of the spine is misaligned, it will affect the communication between the brain and body.

A Weakened Signal

When the communication between the brain and body is affected by a spinal misalignment, it doesn’t mean a total cutoff. It can simply dampen the communication, much like a dimmer switch on the wall. The misalignment dims the light, and the area won’t get 100% communication. It might get down to 60-70% at first. Once the signal is dampened enough, however, paralysis will happen.

That’s why numbness and tingling are such strong indicators of spinal misalignment. Those nerves are dimmed down due to misalignment, resulting in something that just doesn’t quite feel right.

Through chiropractic, we find, analyze and correct the spinal misalignments that create problem in your nervous system function. In doing so, our aim is to restore your brain’s communication with the rest of the body to 100%. Then, your body can work just the way it was designed to!

Dr. Roger Sperry, a nobel prize winning scientist, stated that “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by movement of the spine.” When there are areas in the spine that are not moving correctly, the brain is being starved of the essential information it needs to function at 100%.

Drs. Lauren and Jimmy utilize a technique known as Specific Prone to locate, analyze and correct the areas of joint dysfunction. Specific Prone is a very soft, gentle and highly effective technique. Most people say, “Was that all?” after their adjustment – even if they’d felt a little nervous before getting started! We also use Diversified, Gonstead and the Activator® instrument whenever appropriate. Dr. Jimmy is also a certified Rock Tape® doctor.

The majority of our patients will receive intersegmental traction as a complement to their chiropractic care. This therapy is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing joint mobility.

When you do intersegmental traction, you’ll lie on a table, face-up. Then, a mechanical roller begins to move up and down your spine. This causes joint mechanoreceptors and proprioceptors to fire, giving essential stimulation to the brain. It’ll help you get into the parasympathetic, “rest and digest” mode of your nervous system, allowing you to heal.

Dr. Jimmy and Dr. Lauren are both certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment that is commonly used on pregnant moms. The goal is to reduce spinal misalignments and neuro-biomechanical imbalances, allowing the body to function optimally.

Due to the changes in weight, posture and hormones, chiropractic care plays a crucial role in having the healthiest pregnancy and birth as possible. Drs. Lauren and Jimmy love to check children as early as possible because they feel that it is so important to make sure their nervous system is functioning optimally while they are growing.
