There’s something unique you should know about Damron Chiropractic & Wellness – we utilize a team approach to every person that walks through our doors. This team approach to wellness focuses on three parts of the body: the foundation, the structure, and the function. By addressing these three areas we ensure that we optimize every person’s visit and get them back to living a pain-free, active life. We believe that by addressing the whole person the problem is truly corrected and less apt to reappear.
The Chiropractor’s role is to address the body’s structure, specifically the spine, when it is out of alignment. This misalignment may or may not cause pain to a person, yet the body must compensate for the change in the “normal” structure of the spine. Compensating means the muscles begin to reassign themselves to support this “new” structure which can be brought about by poor posture or an injury, for example. Muscles that normally wouldn’t support the spine now need to.
For the Chiropractor’s spinal adjustment to have maximum benefit, it’s ideal that the muscles are in a relaxed state. This is accomplished through massage. By loosening the tense and restricted muscles through massage, the spine can be afforded greater mobility and shorten the journey to wellness. However, there is another step in this approach to help the body heal. It involves reteaching the muscles to prevent the spine from resuming its former position. That’s where strength training plays a vital role in this process. Conditioning the muscles to function as they should helps to keep the spine functioning as it should. Building the strength of the body helps to keep the body in a state of wellness because it can now do what it was designed to do.
Our bodies were created with each part serving the whole. Every cell designed with a specific purpose in mind. The lack of proper care causes a domino effect where the integrity of the whole is affected. Inflammation, excess weight, poor nutrition, inadequate sleep, medications, and lack of exercise all contribute to the decline of health and wellness. Thoughtfully addressing the needs of the whole person, as a team, allows Damron Chiropractic and Wellness to stop the domino effect and begin to build a solid foundation from which to reach wellness. We believe that meeting the body’s needs from a structure, foundation, and function perspective greatly enhances the overall well-being of the individual who’s seeking true wellness.
