Chiropractic

We have an experienced Chiropractor, Dr. Lee Furukawa, on staff.

Chiropractic is a health care system based on the premise that all parts of the human body are under control of the neurological system. The neurological system includes the brain, cranial nerves, brain stem, spinal cord and the peripheral nerves that supply all of the organs of the body.

The neurological system functions by creating an electrochemical flow, which travels back and forth between the brain and the organs of the body. If the normal electrochemical flow is compromised by a Subluxation, disease of the supplied organ may develop. This Subluxation will also hinder the body’s ability to prevent or heal a disease, thus adversely affecting the immune system.

Chiropractors remove Spinal Subluxations by a technique called Chiropractic Manipulation. Manipulation of the spine restores the normal motion of the spine and alleviates irritation or compression of the spinal nerves. This restores the normal electrochemical flow. Chiropractors are also highly trained in chiropractic physical therapy, rehabilitation and nutrition. This establishes them as preferred doctors to treat sports injuries and other aches and pains.

Stress may be both mental and physical. A mental stress will create a physical stress and a physical stress will create a mental stress. Work, relationships, expectations etc… may cause mental stress. Injury, poor posture, pollution, noise, infection, poor nutrition etc… may cause physical stress. Whatever the cause, stress produces damaging effects to the body and mind.

A combination of Chiropractic Manipulation, regular exercise, a healthy diet and plenty of rest will reduce your stress. Regular Chiropractic Manipulations play a great role in the reduction of stress. Chiropractic Manipulations free restricted joints, relax muscle spasms, improves circulation and restores neurological flow. All this reduces your physical stress and in turn reduces your mental stress.

Chiropractors are doctors that primarily treat the neuro-musculoskeletal system. The neuro-musculoskeletal system is the interrelationships and functioning of three different organ systems: the neurological system (nerves), the muscular system (muscles and tendons) and the skeletal system (bones and ligaments). However as previously discussed, chiropractors indirectly treat the causes of many different problems in the body. The following is a list of different symptoms and conditions that chiropractic may help.

Headache-Dizziness-Head Colds-Sinusitis-Ringing Ears-Ear Infections
TMJ Syndrome-Asthma-Chest Congestion-Gastrointestinal Disturbances-Insomnia
Arthritis-Degenerative Joint Disease-Fibromyalgia
Sciatica-Disc Injuries-Numbness and Tingling of Limbs-Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Joint Sprains and Strains-Body and Foot Pains-Loss of Flexibility-Aches and Pains of Pregnancy
