Chiropractic Care

What is the most important system in the body?

Your nervous system. It’s responsible for every one of your day-to-day bodily functions. That includes your immune system, cardiovascular system, sexual function and much, much more. The nerves of your body send essential information and energy from the brain to all organs.

The nerves deliver these messages using your spinal cord, which is housed by your spine. As a chiropractor, it is Dr. McKelvey’s aim to adjust your spine and any other joints of your body that need it to ensure you are in proper alignment. Just like a car with tires out of alignment, your spine will wear down faster without being kept in a place of alignment. That’s when pain and dysfunction begin to occur. We use Pettibon cervical traction to warm up and lubricate your spine as well as promote regeneration of your spinal discs.

The Many Conditions We See

Our patients come to us for a broad array of reasons. Some of the most common include

  • Acid reflux
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Back and neck pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Colic
  • Disc degeneration

Pre- and Post-Surgical Cases

If you’ve had one surgery in the last five years, you are 50% likely to need another spinal surgery and after the five-year mark, you are 75% likely to have another surgery.

We work with people who don’t want to have to get surgery or who still need help following a surgical procedure. When two vertebrae are fused, those segments no longer move, putting excess responsibility for movement on the areas above and below and as a result, these areas then wear out faster than they should.

Our Spinal Corrective Care

In our office, we utilize chiropractic as a holistic approach to achieving total wellness. We do so by adjusting misalignments in the joints of the body, primarily the spine, though we do extremity adjustments as well. We also use many rehabilitation methods to correct your posture so that normal function is restored to your nervous system and body.

This is a highly advanced scientific technique that restores your spine to its proper alignment. Your diagnosis and subsequent treatment are based on sound, science-based and chiropractic principles to make corrections right at the source.

Similar to Chiropractic BioPhysics, Pettibon has its own unique protocols, therapies, adjusting methods and rehabilitation procedures. All are based on spinal correction and postural rehabilitation.

Pettibon Tendon Ligament Muscle Stimulator (PTLMS)

People who have postural issues typically have strained muscles that develop painful trigger points. This tool is powerful and highly effective in addressing these tough areas, addressing them in a way nothing else can.

This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function.

The Impulse® Adjusting Instrument is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body.
