Chiropractic Care can and does reverse injury to the body in a way that no other treatment can. Chiropractic care is different than medical practice. Chiropractic care can reveal the cause of many illnesses and diseases that are often masked by medical treatment. We are not opposed to medical treatment if it is necessary, however, we believe at Vital Health that by going to the root of the problem, we can identify the best solution, and return the body to its optimal health naturally.
Many medical practitioners encourage their patients to live a healthy lifestyle. We believe Chiropractic Care is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle and that proper alignment of the spine prevents ailments in the body. When our bodies get out of alignment, there are consequences that sometimes lead to treatments which act merely as a band aid.
Vital Health patients are partners in their optimal health. We support and encourage each one of our patients to take an active role in the development of their optimal health plan. Initially the doctor will assess the physical health of the spine through X-rays to ensure the patient doctor team are in agreement with the physical health of the spine and the possible cause for any ailment. With a thorough understanding of the patient goals and the doctor recommendation, the patient doctor team will choose an option that will be best suited for their short term or long term goals.
Our COMMITMENT at Vital Health is to serve our clients with the utmost professional service, allowing a trusting relationship with the patient doctor team and ensuring optimal health for all who desire to have a healthy spine and a healthy life. Dr. Ashley personally is COMMITTED to going the extra mile to educate his patients and encourage their growth towards success by delivering the best possible treatments Chiropractic Care has to offer.
Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of physical ailments, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.
The History of Chiropractic Care
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
What Kind of Training Does a Chiropractor Have?
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.
Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.
