Great Chiropractic Care!! - May 24, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0; Whether you are new to chiropractic care and thinking about trying this approach to wellness, or you have had chiropractic treatment in the past and are searching for a new practitioner, I would urge you to see Dr. Conrad. His individualized, thorough care of patients is obvious in interactions you will observe in his office, and the results will be quickly evident to you once you have been evaluated and begin treatment. I had been to several chiropractors before finding him and none were as knowledgeable or committed. He has helped me over last couple of years by correcting a bulging disc, increasing my mobility prior to a joint replacement, and greatly reducing the incidence of headaches that used to stop me in my tracks. He is very well versed in a variety of techniques which allows him to choose from a range of options and select what best suits each situation. In addition, his staff of massage therapists provide excellent care to support and enhance your results. In short, make an appointment and go see Dr. Conrad and his staff -- you WILL feel better!

The Chiropractic Adjustment
Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine.
The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system.
Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.
An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place.
This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level.
When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
There are many types of Chiropractic techniques used by Dr. Conrad to relieve stress put upon the vertebral column and its extremities.
Some adjustments made by the Dr. Conrad consist of a high velocity, short lever arm thrust applied to a vertebra, which is often accompanied by an audible release of gas (joint cavitation). Some techniques are very gentle, and each technique is catered to that patient's specific prototol. Our patient testimonials on google.com and insiderpages.com are a testament to Dr. Conrad's attention to offering the best chiropractic care possible.
There are times when joint cavitation or cracking does not occur and this is often due to either significant muscle splinting or the patient may not be adequately relaxed during the chiropractic proce
At times like this, it is sometimes best for Dr.Conrad to apply ice, have the patient rest, or do electrical stimulation and massage prior to attempting spinal manipulation.

X-Ray / MRI / CAT SCAN .
X-Rays are sometimes helpful in determining the severity of a patient's condition, which will be decided after the initial consultation and examination of the patient's injury.
X-Ray radiology can often help diagnose many conditions, such as vertebral misalignments, degeneration, arthritis, fractures and scoliosis.
MRI's are often helpful for your chiropractor in diagnosing musculoskeletal conditions, disc injuries, ligament damage, cartilage damage, and can also be part of a follow up protocol to an X-Ray.
CAT scans are comonly helpful in diagnosing head trauma, swelling, and possible organ damage.
Needle EMG testing is an effective way of diagnosing any referral pain, pinched nerves, or nerve damage which is affecting the upper or lower extremity.
These symptoms are usually characterized by numbness, tingling, or loss of strength in the arms or legs. Chiropractors works with many Neurologists and Orthopaedic surgeons in the area and can refer you for possible neurodiagnostic testing when clinically indicated.

Chiropractic / Pinched Nerves
Your spine consists of 24 vertebrae which allow not only support, but durability, and strength of your back. When these vertebrae misalign, the pressure caused can pinch a nerve, causing you pain and dysfunction. If you believe you have a pinched nerve, go see the chiropractor for an examination today. Chiropractic care is effective in helping with interference in the nervous system, including a pinched nerve. Your nervous system is the center of your thoughts, memory, learning and how you go about your day. Your muscles, blood vessels, glands, internal organs and systems need a healthy nervous system to function properly. When any of these signals are interrupted, the chiropractor can identify what the location of the problem is, and put you on a chiropractic care plan to help resolve the condition. Your spinal column has 4 main functions, which include:
To house and protect the spinal cord and its spinal nerves
To support the weight of your shoulders and hips
To work as an attachment site for your muscles
To support your head and ribs
Is chiropractic effective?
Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignments that can accumulate in our bodies over time. Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function well. For your nervous system to function well it must be free of interference. By restoring spinal function with Chiropractic adjustments, nerve interference by misaligned vertebrae is removed, thus allowing optimal nervous system function and improved health.
Why should I see a Chiropractor?
Seeing a chiropractor is not only for back pain and neck pain. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to keep your body at its peak performance through nutrition, adjustment and overall wellness. In addition, chiropractic care has been known to help a wide range of conditions from fibromyalgia to diabetes.
What is Subluxation?
When a vertebrae becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position, this is referred to in the chiropractic profession as a subluxation. Subluxations can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma. When a vertebrae is subluxated, it begins to put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation interrupts the natural pathways that the messages sent from the brain need to be clear in order to be completed properly.
How does chiropractic care work?
Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking. In the chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem. While it's often perceived that the chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.
What is a chiropractic adjustment? Is it safe?
Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident. When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak. An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
What can I expect from my visit to a chiropractor?
Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition and goals.
What results can I expect from treatment?
Chiropractic is based on the idea of removing imbalances both structural and postural in an effort to allow our body to heal itself. For this to happen the network of nerves and signals from your brain, down your spinal cord, to the network of nerves must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to. If you've ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it's very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment. While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for misalignment, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear. Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at its peak.
