Yes! Chiropractic care is both effective and safe. Scientific evidence proving that chiropractic care works is overwhelming. Over the past 20 years, many controlled and independent research studies have shown again and again that chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment.
Based on these scientific studies, the consensus is that chiropractic care is the treatment of choice for most spinal problems. The extent to which a person can benefit from care varies depending on their problem and how long it has existed.



Stress and Subluxation

Chiropractic medicine addresses subluxation in the body.  The three main causes of subluxation (joint dysfunction) are mechanical stress, chemical stress, and mental stress.

Mechanical stresses are referred to as either micro or macro traumas. . Both forms of mechanical injury which cause joint dysfunction can benefit immensely from chiropractic care.

  • Micro traumas can also be called repetitive stress injury. For example sitting with poor posture at a desk and typing all day can cause problems such as carpal tunnel or neck, upper back, or low back pain.
  • Macro traumas refers to specific incidents such as a fall, a break, or a car crash.

Subluxations can also be caused by chemicals stress on the the body. For example smoking, heavy drinking, exposure to pollution, and poor diet can create chemical imbalances in the body.

Mental stress is also capable of harming our body. As many of us have seen, we are more prone to sickness at times of great mental stress.  Job changes, family illness, moving, divorce or death can be triggers for mental stress.

Removing Subluxation

Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural dysfunctions that can accumulate in our bodies in response to these different forms of stress. Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy.

Remember your body is self-healing and self-regulating. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function well, since the brain and nervous system are the master control of your body. For your nervous system to function at it’s best it must be free of interference, free of subluxations. By restoring spinal function with the Chiropractic adjustment, nerve interference is removed, thus allowing optimal nervous system function and improved health.

The customized care you receive from your chiropractor may help to improve your posture, muscle balance and mobility. It can also restore the integrity of your nervous system and therefore your entire body, so you can get back to being healthy today!


The history of the chiropractor dates back as far as 17,500 BC. Hippocrates believed that a misaligned spine contributed to the health of an individual. Modern day chiropractic goes back over 100 years, when the first adjustment was given by Dr. Daniel Palmer on September 18, 1895.

Dr. Palmer, born in Canada in 1845, was very much interested in the healing art and first learned magnetic healing. This form of healing used the magnetism in the body. In 1886, Dr. Palmer opened his first office of magnetic healing in Burlington, Iowa. From there, he went on to open another office in Burlington, Iowa in 1887.

His interest was finding the cause and effect of sickness. He studied to discover what causes sickness and what effects sickness has on the human body. The first chiropractic adjustment he gave in 1895 was performed on a man who had lost his hearing 17 years previously. He reported to Dr. Palmer that at the time of losing his hearing, he had strained his back and had heard a noise in his back when this happened. Suspecting that there could be a spinal misalignment, Dr. Palmer examined him and did find a vertebra out of line. Dr. Palmer adjusted the vertebra back into position and the man’s hearing did improve.

This proved Dr. Palmer’s theory that if the spine is aligned correctly, the nerve flow to all parts of the body will work correctly and, thus, the body will be healthy and free of disease. Dr. Palmer was excited to think that he may have discovered a cure for all sickness.

Criticism of this new healing technique came from many, especially the medical community, as it did not involve the traditional medical theory of health. For years, chiropractic was discredited, made fun of and even referred to as quackery. A lot of this still goes on today, but this is largely due to misinformation and misunderstanding. Many people do not understand the concept of chiropractic and have only listened to the propaganda that’s been broadcast. In fact, it wasn’t until the early 1970s that insurance companies started to recognize chiropractic as legitimate health care and allowed claims to be paid for chiropractic care.

In 1897, Dr. Palmer opened his chiropractic school in Davenport, Iowa, calling it the Palmer Infirmary and Chiropractic Institute. The name was later changed in 1907 to Palmer School of Chiropractic. Enrollment at first was low, with only 24 students in 1906, but today there are over 20 schools with enrollment of over 10,000 students.

 Next a non-invasive computerized scan of your spine is performed. This scan provides you and Dr. Jackie with objective data which assists in the determination of your personalized health care recommendations.


Once all of the necessary information has been collected we will schedule a follow-up visit. In this appointment Dr. Jackie will go into detail, explaining whether or not you would benefit from chiropractic care, and if so what care would entail. It is necessary for this to be done as a follow-up visit. Dr. Jackie wants to give your care adequate time, reviewing your examination findings and determining how to best proceed.


Many conditions improve while a patient is undergoing chiropractic care. This is because the channels of communication from the brain to nerves to organs is enhanced by chiropractic adjustment.

A Chiropractic Adjustment is the main method of treatment used by your chiropractor. It is a specialized, controlled and safe pressure applied to your spine to restore the proper motion of your vertebrae. It is a precise procedure that your highly skilled chiropractor has learned and perfected over years of training at a Chiropractic College and in clinical practice.

Every health procedure, from taking aspirin to giving blood, involves a level of risk. Chiropractic adjustments are among the safest of all health care interventions, and they work!

Every year, more than 30 million Americans see chiropractors as part of the regular health care programs and with over 84,000 licensed chiropractors nationwide and more than 10,000 students currently enrolled in chiropractic school, it is the fastest growing health care profession.

The Chiropractor

The Chiropractic approach is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body. When there is interference in the spine, there is resulting interference in the organs, muscles and tissues of your body. This means interference in your ability to heal. Chiropractic adjustments remove the interference, allowing your body to heal at its best.


“As a chiropractor, when I treat a patient, I am focused on helping to ensure that the brain (which controls the body) is provided with open pathways of communication down the spine and throughout the nervous system.” Dr. Jackie

Chiropractic medicine is a form of natural health care that focuses on treating a patient without the use of drugs or medicines. Doctors of Chiropractic, more commonly known as chiropractors, are primary health care providers licensed in all 50 states, and are recognized by governmental health care programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Workers’ Compensation programs and more.


Chiropractors frequently treat individuals with problems, such as headaches, joint pain, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica. Chiropractors also treat patients with osteoarthritis, spinal disk conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, sprains, and strains. However, the scope of conditions that chiropractors manage or provide care for is not limited to the common pains and problems listed above. The healing work that chiropractors do also can help alleviate symptoms of allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, and other disorders.


Spinal Degeneration

Chiropractic care can help arrest the progression of spinal degeneration. In those cases in which the damage is considered “irreversible”, chiropractic care can help give relief to symptoms.

There are known stages of spinal degeneration. Chiropractic care can help arrest further damage and help with pain.


Degeneration Phase 1

First your spine loses its normal balance. There may be a loss of normal spinal curves. Your nerves may be affected and the vital life energy that flows over them is interfered with. Also your joints, discs, nerves and posture and stressed and age more quickly. Surprisingly, there may be no pain other than occasional minor discomfort. Also present may be a slight lessening of energy and slight height loss. Response to spinal care is generally good

Degeneration Phase 2

Here there is a much greater degree of decay, disc narrowing and bone spurs (deformations); postural changes are much worse. This condition is very common (by age 40, 80% of males and 76% of females exhibit moderate disc degeneration). Spinal canal narrowing or stenosis may occur. This phase is characterized by more common aches and pains, fatigue and a diminished ability to cope with stress. Height continues to decrease. With chiropractic care significant improvement is possible.

Degeneration Phase 3

Here there are more postural imbalances, increased nerve damage, permanent scar tissue and advanced bone deformation. Physical and/or mental weakness or disability begin. Also found in this phase are permanent loss of height and loss of energy. With care some reversal is possible.

Degeneration Phase 4

This is the most advanced stage of subluxation degeneration. The postural imbalance is severe and motion is limited. There is severe nerve damage, permanent scar tissue is formed and the bones may begin to fuse. In this phase we find pain, various degrees of physical or mental disability, and continued loss of energy and height. By now the condition is considered irreversible, although chiropractic may give some symptomatic relief.



“I am committed to providing compassionate care that addresses all of your concerns. I am able to treat the entire family, from infants to elders.”

As a licensed practitioner, it is Dr. Jackie’s duty to do the following:
A thorough review of your specific problem is conducted, including relevant past history and overall health.
You will be asked to perform physical tests and movements to help identify the problem.
A computerized scan of your spine, which consists of a thermal (temperature) and and EMG (muscle activity) portion, will be done. This is quick and easy and painless, and it provides you and your chiropractor with objective data about the condition of your nervous system.
In certain situations, an X-ray may be used to confirm the history and examination findings and to investigate for the presence of any underlying bone conditions or pathological developments.
A diagnosis is made, with treatment options for its resolution outlined. The plan of treatment is communicated, and if the complaint is not a chiropractic problem, an appropriate referral is arranged.
A prognosis is made, taking into account your general health habits, occupation, stress and activity levels.
Your response to treatment is monitored by your chiropractor, who looks for an improvement to your specific condition, as well as for changes in your overall health. Two of the basic components of chiropractic care are wellness and prevention. Utilization of exercises, along with nutrition and lifestyle modifications may also be suggested to improve your overall well-being and promote active, patient-centered care.
