How does chiropractic help with babies and kids?

While the birthing process is a natural, beautiful occurrence, it can be brutal on mom and baby! In a birth that involves medical interventions, the baby is even more at risk of imbalance and misalignment issues developing. Parents are encouraged to bring their newborns into the clinic as soon after birth as possible to gently assess the function of baby's nervous system. A balanced body and nervous system helps create a healthy, happy child. Studies have shown that babies and children that receive gentle Chiropractic treatment tend to have less colds, allergies, difficulty breastfeeding, and ear infections. In addition, chiropractic care can help with bed-wetting, epilepsy, autism, muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy.
Research has also shown that gentle adjustments can help create an easier pregnancy, delivery and recovery for both mom and baby. Dr.Tomsin uses the Webster Technique - a specialized chiropractic technique developed for pregnant women to balance and align the pelvis allowing for optimum room for baby to move, develop and deliver. Through the use of gentle adjustments to the spine and pelvis, Dr. Tomsin also helps moms deal with the stress and strain that may accompany pregnancy, helping to balance and realign the body as it changes.  

I know chiropractic helps neck and back pain but can you help me with a non-musculoskeletal issue?

The purpose of chiropractic care is to get to the cause of a health issue. Though chiropractic care is popular for helping musculoskeletal problems, it is well known throughout the health care community that chiropractic can resolve many of the health issues we encounter today. The principle is simple. The body is designed to be healthy, if it is not, it is either one of two things. One, the body is stuck in defense physiology and the sympathetic nervous system has been on overdrive for too long or the communication within the nervous system is not functioning properly.   

How long will my first visit take?

I've heard once you start working with a chiropractor, you have to keep going many times a week forever. Are you all like that?

Most of our clients improve 80 to 90% in the first 4-6 weeks. Follow-up care is given for residual chronic and repeated patterns of symptoms when necessary.Although we do look to see that our patients experience relief from symptoms and pain patterns, we firmly believe in living a wellness lifestyle. This means eating good food, moving daily, thinking positively and maintaining a balance within the body (getting regular chiropractic care). We think of it like this: if you join the gym to get fit, you don’t just go to the gym one time and you are fit for life, right? You go to the gym to build and maintain your fitness. Same goes for chiropractic care. You get adjusted to balance the nerve system and body. Once that is achieved, the goal is to maintain that balance.

How is CONCEPT·CHIROPRACTIC different from other chiropractic clinics?

​There is no “popping and cracking” at CONCEPT·CHIROPRACTIC Health Center. Through an advanced mind/body technology called Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique, neuro-vascular reflex points are held on the skull and the body in coordination with breath and memory experiences to release defense physiology, freeing the body to return to its original design of self regulating, repairing and maintaining. A crucial part of increasing health quicker, better and faster is “homework”. Specific breathing exercises, along with an exercise called The EmPower March are given to each client. 

How many visits do I have to make before my health problem is solved?

Most people notice a change in some area of their body within the first three to five visits. However, some issues are resolved within a couple visits. Energy, digestion, sleep patterns, ranges of motion, attitude perceptions.
Ultimately, healing depends on the severity of the injury or the chronicity of the problem, the toxicity of the body, and the patient’s willingness to do homework and change lifestyle.

How is CONCEPT·CHIROPRACTIC different from a medical doctor?

​Medical doctors are concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and removal of symptoms and symptom complexes, which are commonly categorized as diseases. Medicine takes apart the body and creates specialties for each part. It adheres to Newtonian philosophy which says the whole is made up of a sum of its parts. Each part is made up of smaller parts. If we can control the parts, we can control the system. Drugs are utilized to control the body by increasing, decreasing or stopping a body function. CONCEPT·CHIROPRACTIC sees the body as a perfect expression of input given and choices made. How we eat, breath, drink, rest, exercise, and think effects our current health state and level of balance or imbalance- harmony or dis-ease. Our body’s purpose and design is survival. Symptoms are a perfect expression of a body in a state of survival. Remove the root cause of the imbalance/interference and the body heals and repairs itself.
