Home Base – Structural Factors
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nerve system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. First developed in 1895 as a health discipline that seeks to prevent and treat health problems by using spinal adjustments in order to correct misalignments (subluxations); today chiropractic is the largest drugless healing profession. Chiropractors strive to diagnose and correct biomechanical disturbances and nervous system blockages which often manifest in symptoms of inflammation, tension, adhesions and other joint mobility restrictions and may have systemic impact.
Home Base – Chiropractic Philosophy
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between bodily structure (primarily that of the spine) and function , and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. Chiropractors use a drug-free, non-surgical method which returns the body to balance. Adjustments influence the body’s nervous system and natural defense mechanisms in order to alleviate pain and improve general health.
The brain and nervous system control and coordinate all the body’s functions in part through nerve branches that exit from the spinal cord between the vertebrae. Irritation of the nervous system by mechanical, chemical, emotional factors are the cause of disease; restoration and maintenance of health depend on normal function of the nervous system. Adjustments of the spine and joints normalize joint motion, reducing nerve interference, relieving stress and restoring normal nervous system function to promote the body’s natural healing capability.
Home Base – Hoover Wellness Care
At Hoover Wellness Care we treat disease through adjustments of the vertebrae in order to relieve pressure on the nerves, “so that nerve force may flow freely from the brain to the rest of the body.”
Dr. Hoover uses Activator spinal adjustments as an integral treatment tool. The Activator adjusting instrument delivers precisely controlled, light thrust chiropractic adjustments. Some people describe that it feels like a heavy tap. The action is so quick that the adjustment is completed before the body’s natural tendency to tighten up is initiated. It is safe, highly effective and completely painless. One additional advantage of the Activator adjustment method is that people are not twisted or turned into uncomfortable positions prior to the adjustment.
