Article #1

When it comes to healthy living, more and more people are

looking for a natural approach to help their bodies maintain

optimum health. The solution is not necessarily in the medical

world of drugs and surgery. Now days, an increasing number of

health conscious individuals are turning to chiropractic care to

prevent or completely eliminate many of problems on which

traditional medicine thrives.

How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic care doesn’t cure disease or treat illness, but it

does enable the human body to heal itself. The chiropractor

finds and corrects subluxations or misalignments of the

vertebrae. These subluxations interfere with the nerve function

in the body resulting in pain and other health problems. Your

chiropractor can minimize interference with the nervous system

and help restore the body the way nature intended it. Once that

is done, the body’s own healing powers are able to go to work.

Who needs chiropractic?

People with back pain and headaches are usually the first to

seek chiropractic care, but those with anything ranging from

allergies to arthritis and eczema to asthma can benefit. Probably

most surprising, people who feel strong and healthy can benefit

greatly from chiropractic care as well. How? By preventing the

serious problems on which the medical world of pills and

prescriptions thrives.

If I’m healthy, what can chiropractic do for me? 

Chiropractic is a natural, holistic approach to preventing as well

as eliminating pain and discomfort.

For the athlete, it can mean better performance, more effective

training and less chance of injury plus quicker, more complete

healing when injuries do occur.

 For mothers to be, chiropractic will facilitate easier pregnancy

and delivery, and the unborn child benefits from less in-utero

constraint.

Children prone to ear infections or struggling with Attention

Deficit Disorder can be significantly helped by chiropractic

adjustments.

Older people who are at risk for a fall will see their balance

greatly improved and find themselves less likely to suffer hip

fractures. Chiropractic treatment can also enhance memory and

improve circulation.

Those who garden find chiropractic care the ideal solution to

the inevitable aches and pains in a body that hasn’t been quite

so active in the preceding winter months.

Finally, for anyone who wants to enhance their brainpower,

strengthen their immune system and have more energy,

chiropractic a simple, natural way to achieve those goals.

How often should I see a chiropractor?

Frequency of adjustments depends on the individual. Some

people find complete relief from a particular ache or pain after

just one visit. For others, it may take more adjustments. After

any initial concerns are met, most patients like to continue with

“routine maintenance” just to stay in the best of health.

What can I expect from my first visit to Dr. King?

You’ll be greeted by Lisa, our receptionist/office manager. Her

warmth and concern for your well-being is the first step on your

journey to total wellness.

Dr. King will then take the time to get acquainted with you and

listen carefully to your concerns. She will give a physical

examination, which may include x-rays, some simple flexibility

tests, and other diagnostic procedures. Next, Dr. King will

perform a thorough spinal examination to detect any structural

abnormalities which may be affecting or causing your condition.

At that point, she will be able to discuss a treatment plan with

you.

What happens in the treatment?

Once she determines the problem, Dr King can begin care by

way of adjustments to the spine. This involves the specific

manipulation of vertebrae, which have abnormal movement

patterns or fail to function normally. Dr King will pay special

attention to that area of your vertebrae where a spinal

derangement or "subluxation" has been detected. The

adjustment is usually given by hand by applying pressure to the

areas of the spine that are out of alignment or that do not move

properly within their normal range of motion. Dr King has spent

the past 13 years using motion palpation (the art of examining

by movement or touch) and other forms of spinal examining

procedures, so that she can provide expert spinal adjustments.

Ultrasound is the application of sound waves to tissue in the

human body to increase healing in that  area. Ultrasound that is

applied to an injury causes a vibration at the cellular level. This

treatment can decrease pain, increase flexibility and speeds

healing. Treatment will last one to eight minutes.  Ultrasound

will cause almost no sensation. Dr King's ultrasound wand is

heated for patient comfort.

Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is used for two main reasons

either to decrease pain, or to cause a muscle to contract. When

using EMS for pain control the current encourages the body's

natural pain-controlling mechanisms by either blocking a pain

nerve's signal or by releasing endorphins. Depending on your

condition EMS may be used to cause mild contraction of the

muscles.  Most patients describe EMS as feeling like tingling or a

mini-massage.

Do adjustments hurt?

In the vast majority of cases, adjustments don't hurt at all. Those

who have experienced chiropractic usually look forward to the

visit because they know how much better they will feel

afterward. Some patients may experience minor discomfort

during the adjustment, which lasts only seconds. In most cases

however, Dr. King’s extensive training and safe, gentle manner

make the chiropractic experience easy and enjoyable.

Are you accepting new patients?

We welcome new patients and encourage you to discover for

yourself the benefits of a holistic approach to better health for

your entire family. Call for an appointment today!

Article #2

“I didn’t know how bad I felt until I started to feel good again.”

The most common statement heard by Dr. Holly King in her 20+

years of practicing Chiropractic.

Departure from optimum health is a slow process that sneaks

up on even the best of us. Whether or not we’re conscious of it,

many of us experience some form of it. Maybe we feel a few

more little aches or pains, dismissing it as just a part of getting

older. Look around at your peer group and ask yourself, are you

able to do less than your friends? Are there activities that you

were able to do a year ago, but now you can't? Do you wonder

why? In my practice, I have seen many people give up on

activities that they still want to do and shouldn’t have to quit.

But here’s the secret:

You have to move properly!

Improper motion or positioning of the spine is called

subluxation. These subluxations interfere with vital nerve

impulse exchanges by irritating nerves; they also decrease

tissue and organ function. How does chiropractic help with this?

Chiropractic adjustments are specific, and intentional, in

improving mind/body communication. A chiropractic adjustment

manipulates and mobilizes a joint very precisely. These

movements cause a flush of fluids that lubricate the adjusted

joint and, more importantly, also interact with the nervous

system beneficially. Everyone is different and everyone

responds differently to care; however, the good news about

good health – it often returns as the nervous system improves.

All spines are not the same, which means chiropractic care

becomes very personal and must be tailored to the individual.

As a chiropractor, I work with each of my patients to set

obtainable goals for every step of the way on their journey back

to feeling normal and being well. I listen carefully to each patient

and discuss realistic options to choose from. We create

stretching and strengthening home programs based on exam

and x-ray findings. I also evaluate for nutritional needs, so no

more wasting money on vitamins that your body doesn’t need.

With this formula, I have seen committed patients return to

running, golfing, swimming, hiking, bowling, and other activities

that they can once again enjoy.

I passionately love what I do, I live what I preach, and I learn

something new every day. Now, how about you? Do you have a

passion for life and want to experience it for all that it is? I can

help. Let’s design a chiropractic lifestyle just for you.
