  • Chiropractic Adjustments

    Dr. Hadsall uses a series of safe, effective adjustments to correct her patients complaints. By using chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Hadsall restores joint mobility and function. This restores nerve flow and allows the body to return to a healthy, fully functioning state. A body kept in balance is a healthy body.

  • Soft Tissue and Muscle Work

    Along with the adjustment, Active Release Technique, a soft tissue mobility technique, is used to loosen tight muscles and decrease pain. Soft tissue and muscle work are very helpful in healing injuries such as whiplash.

  • Nutritional Counseling

    Nutritional issues are primarily caused by one of two things. The first one is a Nutritional Deficiency. This is when the body is short of essential vitamins or minerals, often due to shortcomings in the standard diet. The other cause is from toxicity. This is a result of a buildup of harmful pesticides and chemicals that are used in modern agriculture that seep into our food source. Dr. Hadsall can evaluate you and determine if you suffer from either of these issues.

10 Chiropractic Myths and Truths

Chiropractic is the 3rd largest primary health care profession in the western world next to Medicine and Dentistry.
Doctors of Chiropractic and Doctors of Medicine take the same class load with a few exceptions that you can see in the table to the right. Residencies are required by both degrees prior to graduation. These entail the student successfully completing several hundred clinical hours of “real” patient management in a clinical setting under professional supervision. Most Chiropractic colleges require students to partake in a clinical externship program which places them in actual chiropractic offices, which allows them to enhance their knowledge on clinical skills, as well as, how to run an office from all aspects. Both Doctors have to successfully complete National Board Exams prior to obtaining a license. Continuing education is then required to maintain a high level of competency and to stay up to date on the latest research and techniques for both Doctorate degrees.
Back pain is what Chiropractors are known for, but the root of Chiropractic is much deeper than that. Chiropractors affect your spinal column, which in turn affects your nerves and tissues. This allows us to help your body heal itself so you can develop Wellness from Within. Some of the non soft tissue conditions we can help treat are: migraine headaches, ear infections, colic, ADD, sinus issues, common cold, dysmenorrhea (painful menses), ulcers and bowel complications, just to list a few.
People usually feel instant relief after a spinal adjustment. Patients tend to get off the table feeling more relaxed, higher energy, out of discomfort/pain . Patients that are in an acute pain level sometimes experience pain during the actual adjustment because any movement during the acute phase causes them pain, but after the treatment they usually feel relief and a decrease in the pain level.
Chiropractic adjustments are safe when performed by a Doctor of Chiropractic, but can be dangerous when performed by another healthcare professional that is less trained in the area of expertise. It has been shown that Chiropractic adjustments are among the safest and most effective ways to treat back and neck pain. Conservative spinal manipulations should be pursued in most cases before considering drug and surgical intervention.

The result of injury following a chiropractic treatment is less than 0.01% according to medical studies. This compares with a much higher risk of invasive procedures involving injections, medications, and surgeries. Some people fear they will have a stroke if their neck is adjusted; the truth is there is no scientific evidence to show an increased risk of any serious event following a chiropractic adjustment. There are some who suggest that the chance of having a stroke after a spinal manipulation is about 1 in 1,000,000. This number has never been scientifically proven it is only estimated, but it shows that you have a better chance of being struck by lightning, being killed on a bicycle and dying from taking aspirin then by being seriously injured by chiropractic care.

There was a study done to see if there was a correlation between one developing osteoarthrits and cracking their knuckles on their hands. The participants included 15 people who cracked their knuckles and 13 who did not crack their knuckles. Of the 15 that did crack their knuckles only 1 showed arthritic changes. On the contrary, 5 of the 13 who did not crack their knuckles showed that they had arthritic changes in their hands. This shows that joints receive a therapeutic effect from an adjustment. This is because the movement of the joint back into place allows the joint itself to get nourishment from the exchange of gases . It also allows the fluid and gases of the joint capsule to move and not stay stagnant, which also helps decrease the arthritic formation.
A chiropractic adjustment is focused on mobilizing a specific joint that is fixated to restore normal function. This fixation affects your whole body through handicapping other joints, as well as, internal organs. The audible sound, which is sometimes heard during the adjustment, is the sound of Oxygen, Nitrogen and CO2 being released due to the opening of the joint space.
Chiropractic care is safe for children of all ages, including babies. Childhood is the stage in life where you are growing, learning, exploring and playing so the musculoskeletal system is under a lot of stress. OSHA estimates that a child sustains 1,500 spinal related traumas before the age of 5. Chiropractic care can help kiddos develop Wellness from Within and prevent many ailments that present during childhood such as: colic, ear infections, common colds, bowel issues, growth pains, athletic injuries to list a few.
Most insurance companies have Chiropractic coverage. Insurances are turning to more cost effective, preventative measures to help their clients stay healthy and prevent complications and serious health issues later in life. Most Chiropractors also offer a cash based price for those patients that do not have insurance or do not have insurance coverage for Chiropractic care. This is usually at an affordable cost so that you can keep yourself and your family healthy.
Chiropractors promote preventative care to help their patients avoid pain, disease and sickness in their patients. After getting their patients out of acute pain, they usually recommend their patients return for checkups. This is equivalent to a dentist recommending checkups to help their patients prevent cavities and gum disease. The preventative approach in health care has been gaining large support in the medical community and with insurance because it has been proven to be cost and health effective in the long term. Chiropractic checkups are safe, convenient, quick and natural and prevent complicated problems in the future. Many patients see changes in their energy, immune function, sleep patterns and general well being with chiropractic care, but it always is your choice on how often you see your Chiropractor.
