According to the World Health Organization, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” All the systems of the body need to function in a coordinated manor in order to maintain health.
This is why Chiropractic care is so important to maintain optimal health! The nervous system is the master control center for all other systems of the body. An interruption of the impulses traveling through the nervous system to target tissues will lead to aberrant messages received in those tissues, resulting in an uncoordinated function of that system and a subsequent decrease in the health of the body.
The most common cause of nerve impulse interference is the vertebral subluxation complex (VSC). This is a condition in which a minor misalignment of one of the spinal vertebrae irritates a spinal nerve, thus interfering with the brain’s message to target cells, tissues and organs of the body. Depending on the severity of the irritation and resultant damage, subluxation may or may not initially produce noticeable symptoms (such as pain or limited motion). Therefore VSC can silently lower the body’s resistance to disease processes and overall weaken your ability to adapt to a changing environment.
There are three steps to leading to the correction of the VSC and regaining health
- Condition Based Care – Initial intensive care in which symptom relief is provided through the correction of the VSC.
- Maintenance Care – Reconstructive care which seeks to restore a proper biomechanical relationship between bone, nerve, and soft tissue structures.
- Wellness Care – Providing the patient with life-long prevention of the effects of uncorrected VSC and a subsequent healthier lifestyle, similar to wellness dental care.
Through these corrective changes, A chiropractor represents a unique and cost effective approach to achieving true health.

It is the goal of a Chiropractor to adjust (remove vertebral subluxations) and educate as many individuals and families as possible toward optimal health through chiropractic care. Dr. Kevin will not only provide care for the patient with symptoms (such as pain and limited motion), but also for the patient wanting to experience optimum health by having their body functioning at its maximum potential.
