GENTLE YET POWERFUL CHIROPRACTIC CARE
In addition to traditional Chiropractic care, we offer a unique, breakthrough approach to patient care called Koren Specific Technique (KST). This does not involve the usual twisting, turning, "cracking" or "popping" of joints associated with traditional Chiropractic adjustments. Instead, you receive gentle, specific corrections to your spine and structural system. Most adjustments are done while you are standing or sitting.
With this technique, we are correcting a serious form of nerve stress caused by distortions in your spine and structural system. This stress is known as a vertebral subluxation complex. These subluxations can cause physical and mental/emotional malfunction. They are often associated with loss of energy, pain, weakness and disease of all types.
Subluxations may be caused by physical, chemical or emotional stress or trauma. Our purpose in this office is to remove this stress from your body/mind complex so that you may become physically and mentally healthier.
KST is very gentle and yet very powerful. Patients usually notice dramatic changes from the first visit. Your body will likely hold its corrections for a much longer time with KST than with traditional Chiropractic care. This will allow deeper physical and emotional subluxations (stresses) to be addressed.
KST permits us to quickly, easily and gently check and correct (adjust) your body for subluxations, wherever they may arise. This includes your cranial bones, TMJ, entire spinal (vertebral) column, sacrum, coccyx, discs, hips, sternum, ribs, femur heads (upper thigh bones), shoulders, knees, feet, hands and anything else that needs correcting. In certain cases, these subluxations may only be observed when you are in a certain posture. For example, if a person was in a car accident, their subluxations may only be revealed and completely corrected while they are seated.
Your body has many layers. At each session we correct what your body is revealing at that time. Older injuries, older distortions, older subluxations, and older symptoms (both physical and emotional) may surface at later sessions. The release of old injuries, which is part of the healing process, is known as retracing. On occasion, some patients have reported "cleansing" symptoms (if they even occur). These symptoms are usually only temporary. Not everyone experiences retracing on a physical or conscious level. Sometimes dreams may become more frequent or unusual as a result of KST care.
One of the unique features of KST is the ability to analyze or check the body for disc conditions. Patients who have suffered for many years have found "miraculous" improvements from chronic problems with KST.
Everyone is different, but certain general responses have been noticed by patients after receiving a KST adjustment. Many people report a feeling of ease, relaxation and well-being as their structural and nerve stress (subluxations) release. Often people report a "lighter feeling," the ability to breathe more deeply and sometimes an emotional release. Eyesight may improve, with increased clarity and greater peripheral vision. This is a sign of increased blood flow to the brain. Some people may feel as if they had a good workout, often in places they were never aware of before. This is usually temporary. We ask our patients to observe their dreams and physical changes over the next few days and to report back to us how they are responding.
The big question is always "How long will it take me to get better?" We all want complete healing, and you and I will work together toward that goal. I find that the best results are obtained with a combination of the services that are provided here, especially Nutrition Response Testing and Neuro Cranial Integration. If you've had a health problem for many years, it may take time for your body to heal.
Everyone in our office is honored to work with you, your family and your friends. We are thankful for the privilege of sharing your wonderful, mysterious and powerful healing journey. We welcome your questions and are always available for you.
