Chiropractic is the largest, drug-less healing art in the world and focuses on the Innate power of the body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. Your neuro-spinal system serves as a connection between your brain and every cell, tissue, organ and gland in your body. When over-stressed, your nervous system stores this physically, chemically, and emotionally, which interferes with the overall communication and your ability to heal. Rather than just treating symptoms, chiropractic addresses the source of a condition or disease without the use of drugs, surgery or painful injections. Specific chiropractic adjustments remove stored neuro-spinal stress and facilitate communication between your brain and body, allowing your body to respond and adapt better. Numerous conditions respond well to chiropractic care and often times, relief of pain and an increase in function are immediately noticeable.
PEDIATRIC CARE - NOW ACCEPTING ARKids
Essential developmental changes and growth occur in the first few years of life. From birth to learning to crawl, walk, and playing with friends, our little ones are exposed to a great deal of stress. The neuro-spinal system tranforms and adapts at an extremely rapid rate. How we support our children during these significant years determines their expression of health and well being. Gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments release stored stress in the neuro-spinal system allowing children to adapt and heal faster, as well as boosting their immunity.These adjustments are done with light finger-tip pressure, similar to what would be used to check the ripeness of a tomato, without any 'popping' or 'cracking'. With a clear and balanced system, children can express their health optimally. Dr. Lauren Newton Morter, DC, offers specific, gentle adjustments appropriate to the infant/child’s spine to allow the body to function at 100%. She is currently completing studies with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is certified in numerous gentle techniques.
In just 9 months a woman carries and provides for the creation of a new life. Consistently changing from the moment of conception, a woman's body can be supported by gentle chiropractic adjustments to better integrate the experience of this magnificent process.
A study by the American Medical Association found that women who received regular chiropractic care during their third trimester, carried and delivered with more comfort. Another study concluded that with regular adjustments:
- the need for analgesics decreased by half during delivery
- it relieved intrauterine constraint
- average amount of time spent in labor decreased by 24% with first time mothers
Whether you are trying to conceive or are already pregnant, having a neuro-spinal system that is clear and connected creates the environment for a healthy and comfortable pregnancy.
Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension, which, experts believe, accounts for 80%-90% of disease. Massage has been proven beneficial in treating fatigue, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, low back pain, immunity suppression, spinal cord injury, post-operative surgery, age-related disorders, TMJ disorders, eating disorders, smoking cessation, and depression, to name just a few. Massage has many physiological effects, such as: Increased circulation to all areas of the body, removal of toxins and waste products that build up in the tissues, reduction in recovery time from certain injuries, softening of the connective tissue that permeates the body, resulting in more relaxed muscles and more efficient organ function, breaking of the pain-tension cycle, which helps prevent muscle strains and aches, increased flexibility and joint mobility, better muscular balance throughout the body, resulting in effective support for other healing modalities, such as chiropractic adjustments.
BIO-ENERGETIC SYNCHRONIZATION TECHNIQUE (B.E.S.T.) / Neuro-Emotional Balancing
The Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique is a non-forceful, neuro-emotional balancing procedure used to help re-establish the full healing potential of the body. Our subconscious brain stores physical, chemical and emotional stress. This can cause the body to respond inappropriately and lead to fatigue and exhaustion of the body and organ systems. The B.E.S.T. procedure works by re-timing messages sent between the body and the brain thus enhancing your body’s natural self-healing mechanisms.
BRAIN BALANCING & POSTURE STRENGTHENING EXERCISES
Your brain controls and coordinates everything that is happening within your body and your body works as a kinetic chain. Rather than using exercises that only work one or two muscles, the techniques you will learn will help your body move and work better as a whole, while stimulating the brain to help you get better faster and stay better longer. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal adjustments by 40% percent or more! Not a quick fix, they will enhance the treatment process and reduce the likelihood of future problems.
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve function. This is done by inserting thin needles at very precise acupuncture points. Acupuncture is particularly useful in resolving physical problems related to tension and stress.
Chinese explanation of acupuncture is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others.
The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; the acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body's internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians. The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulating system. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body's natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems, including: Digestive disorders like gastritis and hyperacidity, spastic colon, constipation, and diarrhea, respiratory disorders such as sinusitis, sore throat, bronchitis, asthma, and recurrent chest infections, neurological and muscular disorders like headaches, facial tics, neck pain, rib neuritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, various forms of tendinitis, low back pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis, as well as urinary, menstrual, and reproductive problems.
NUTRITIONAL CONSULTS & WEIGHT LOSS
Every day we are faced with choices in each of the 6 essentials: what you eat, what you drink, how you exercise, how you rest, how you breathe, and what you think! The food we eat can either be the safest most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. The modern American diet is generally not conducive to "good health". Change is difficult and changing one's diet can be one of the most difficult tasks we face, especially with all of the misinformation and fads that seem to be out there. Our objective is to advise you in making the best choices in each of these areas. We will address daily food intake, activity level, and environment. Consultations include pH testing, goal setting, specific dietary guidelines, nutritional supplementation, exercises customized for the individual, and food allergy and/or metabolic testing when needed

Every individual is biochemically unique; therefore, understanding your unique biochemical makeup is beneficial in determining whether or not your body is functioning optimally. We utilize lab panels to develop an overall assessment of your entire body, including organ function, hormone balance, food sensitivities, intestinal permeability, functional immunology, and to screen for autoimmune conditions. The results help monitor progress by providing an individual baseline for your care plan. Results from these tests can be helpful especially when you feel your body isn't functioning properly or responding to various forms of health care.
We offer in-house x-rays! X-rays are often taken on most patients to give the doctor an inside look at what is going on with the bone structure of the entire spine and surrounding skeletal structure. From this x-ray, the doctor can tell your current spine angles as well as any potential further issues including the potential for additional information such as an MRI.
