The body and brain function as a unit. Any form of stress or injury anywhere in the body will trigger the brain to attack that injury. If your brain focuses on that injury area too much, it neglects other functions of the body, creating an imbalance. It is, thus, important to take care of that injury as soon as possible—to stop the stress cycle—so that the body and brain continue to function at optimal levels.
In cases when drugs and surgery may not be appropriate, chiropractic care may be an option to treat seniors safely and effectively
by Luz F. Senan, D.C.
Prior to attending chiropractic college I worked as a Case Manager and Geriatric Mental Health Counselor.

by Deric D’Agostino, D.C.
“Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.” – Hippocrates
Yep, the same Hippocrates that MD’s worldwide take “the oath” the Hippocratic oath……the original father of modern medicine, the Grand Poobah of health. Even he said look to the spine. Why would he say such a thing? Well, he was kind of a smart Greek guy. But for today we’ll start with the human frame. Try and imagine that with all things considered, all we are is a brain and spinal cord…… THAT’S IT!!!
