Dr. von Rice’s adjusting techniques and nutritional strategies have proven to be effective for headaches, neck pain, migraines, back pain, sciatica, whiplash, asthma, allergies, acid reflux, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and fibromyalgia. Our philosophy at von Rice Chiropractic is that the body was built to be healthy and the power that made the body heals the body. If you are not healthy then there must be a cause preventing your body from functioning properly. Our job is to find that hidden cause by evaluating and analyzing different systems in your body.
First, we start with the nervous system, because as Gray’s Anatomy states “The central nervous system controls and coordinates every other cell, tissue and organ in the body.” We have many different chiropractic techniques all designed to improve the structure of your spine and restore proper nervous system function.
Then we can use our nutritional surveys to evaluate how the other systems (Glandular, Digestive, Eliminative and Circulatory/Lymphatic) in your body are functioning. We have a number of different nutritional supplements that can also help strengthen the weakened system.
Your first visit at von Rice Chiropractic, we will perform a thorough Consultation and Chiropractic Exam to assess if you have a subluxation in your spine causing your problem. A subluxation is when a bone in your spine is out of alignment. This spinal condition can negatively effect your body in 2 ways.
First, it creates nerve interference. Your brain controls everything in your body, and it does this by using the nerves – like cell phones, to communicate with the heart, liver, etc… When a subluxation occurs, it prevents some of this information from getting through – just like a cell phone that has a weak signal. When this happens if the subluxation is left uncorrected, over time the organ the nerve is supplying will begin to malfunction. This organ malfunction can create conditions such as high blood pressure, asthma, acid reflux, neck pain and low back pain.
The second effect of a subluxation is accelerated decay or degeneration, like a cavity in your spine. The research shows that a spine out of alignment degenerates far more rapidly than a spine in alignment. If during the evaluation process we find you have a subluxation then we may take x-rays of the subluxated area. We will analyze these x-rays to find out how severe the subluxation is and if we can help you. If we can help you, we will give you our recommendations for relief and correction and you, the patient can choose what fits into your schedule and budget.
