Chiropractic Care: Just One Part of the Holistic Health Plan
Do you have back or neck pain? You’re not alone. Our philosophy is simple: We want to make people feel better so they can do all the things they want to do, pain-free. We accomplish that with our 4-Step Holistic Health Plan: 1.) Chiropractic care, 2.) Rehabilitation, 3.) Therapeutic massage, and 4.) Nutrition.
The first part of the Holistic Health Plan is chiropractic care. The most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors is known as “spinal manipulation” or “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose is to restore joint mobility by applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – a technical term for a restriction in movement.
Why You’re in Pain — Or Can’t Move
Typically, your joints start to feel pain or you can’t move because you’ve had a tissue injury. Tissue injuries can happen because of something as simple as a single traumatic event. Maybe you helped a buddy move some furniture and forgot to “lift with your legs instead of your back”? Or, your pain could be caused through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. If you have a job that requires you to sit at a computer for most of the day, this could be the source of your back or neck pain.
In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and limited mobility. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
However, before doing anything, Dr. Damron will complete a full assessment: what pain you have, the root cause of the pain, specific issues you’ve had, your health goals, etc. Once he’s had a chance to complete a full evaluation, he’ll create a custom plan just for you.

Get Started Today.
If you’ve never had a chiropractic adjustment, there’s no need to be afraid of it. Chiropractic adjustment itself rarely causes discomfort. Be sure to let Dr. Damron know if you’ve never had a chiropractic adjustment so he can explain the process in more detail. After the adjustment, you may experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (like how you feel after a good workout). That soreness or aching usually goes away within 12 to 48 hours.
