Chiropractic is a unique approach to health. It is a natural healing art that is based on the principle that good health depends primarily on a properly functioning nervous system. Why? Everything in your body; every cell, tissue, muscle and organ gets its function from nerve supply.
The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord and a vast network of nerves that controls and coordinates every aspect of your body. It is the body’s communication system; the information super highway between your brain and your body.
The spinal cord extends from the brain and continues down a tunnel through the spinal column. Improper alignment or movement of the vertebrae (spinal bones) can hinder the flow of vital communication between your brain and body resulting in diminished function and ill health. This common source of interference is called a vertebral subluxation. Chiropractors locate and remove these subluxations in order to restore the integrity of the nervous system. By removing the interference, the body can once again function properly, leading to true health.
Chiropractic has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century.
Most people do not realize how important their spine and nerves are to their overall health and well being. A disruption to the proper communication between your brain and the rest of your body can cause disharmony and dis-ease within your body. This communication breakdown can eventually lead to dysfunction or symptoms such as headaches, aches and pains, colic, ear infections, allergies, lack of energy, poor sleep and many other challenges.
When this interference is removed from the body by a chiropractic adjustment, stress on the nervous system is relieved. The communication between your brain and body will be restored allowing for proper functioning. You will be healthier!

People seeking relief from symptoms or pain:
People with headaches, back, neck, shoulder or hip pain, sports injuries, car or work accidents, numbness, tingling, sciatica, difficulty sleeping, lack of energy, fibromyalgia, arthritis, poor posture, ear infections and more.
People seeking improved health:
Individuals and families seeking proactive wellness care because they understand that a healthy spine helps the whole body to be healthier by improving proper function. Spinal health influences the function of other body systems such as the immune, circulatory, endocrine and digestive systems. A nervous system that is free and clear of interferences allows the body to adapt, respond and recover more effectively to all the demands of life. Along with the physical benefits, a properly functioning nervous system can help your mental and emotional well-being as well.
Most people believe that when they feel good, they are healthy and when they feel bad, they are sick. They believe that having no symptoms is an indicator that they are healthy. Many diseases and conditions like cancer, heart disease or high blood pressure develop in the body for months or years before showing any signs or symptoms.
Chiropractic is based on the principle that health is a state of wholeness where all of the cells, tissues and organs are functioning at 100%; not merely the absence of symptoms. One hundred percent functioning is dependent on full communication between the brain and the body via the nervous system.

Your initial visit (allow 45 minutes)
The consultation is a designated one-on-one time for you and the doctor to discuss the reasons you are seeking care, review your health history and to explain how chiropractic works and how it can help.
Following the consultation the doctor will perform a chiropractic evaluation testing the health of your spine and nervous system. This includes a computerized postural analysis.
Depending on your health history, age, and exam findings, we may recommend an x-ray study. X-rays allow us to see the alignment and motion of your spine and provide a clearer picture of your spinal biomechanics and spinal history. Cohasset Radiology takes our x-rays for us.
Your Second Visit (allow 30 minutes)
Report of Findings
On this visit Dr Lisa will review your consultation and exam findings from your first visit, explain how we can help you, recommend your personalized care plan and review financial options.
