Neurologically Based Chiropractic

Most people are aware that chiropractic care can be helpful for back or neck pain or at best a wide range of musculo-skeletal problems but are completely unaware that the benefits of chiropractic care are largely due to improved nerve function. While mobilizing joints and improving spinal structure is helpful, improving nerve function is far more beneficial. Improved motor nerve function directly affects joint biomechanics, posture, muscle tension, balance, range of motion, and coordination. Improved autonomic nerve function positively affects organs, glands, blood vessels, and most importantly the immune system. Neurologically-based Chiropractic as practiced at A Center for Integrative Health, seeks to draw upon the inherent healing power of the body. Its focus is the detection and reduction of nerve interference. Because the nerve system controls and regulates all bodily systems and functions chiropractic should be the starting point on your journey to health and wellness. Before chiropractic care is recommended in our office, a thorough health evaluation and analysis is performed. This includes a complete health history, a postural assessment, and an objective diagnostic tool called surface Electromyography.

This will allow us to analyze function as well as structure of the spine and get to the root cause of your pain or illness.  A plan of action including frequent re-evaluations and a projected timeline for corrective, stabilization, and wellness care is discussed along with the exact cost for care.

Dr. Mancuso influence nerve function through an exchange of energy known as an adjustment. A quick, precise, light force is applied to the affected nerves by a combination of manual and instrument techniques. These are quite painless, extremely safe, and over time help develop new healthier nerve patterns. Dr. Mancuso is highly experienced, an expert adjuster and is skilled at adjusting patients of all ages and with all health conditions.

Thermography

Thermography was FDA approved in 1982 and is painless, proactive, and preventative.

It detects physiologic change in the body by detecting temperature variations that may be indicators of early vascularity and potential health issues driven by inflammation!

It is a tool that should be used by everyone as part of their preventive health care. This is not a stand alone test nor does it replace your regular Mammography. This test does NOT diagnose cancer!
