Chiropractic is a health care discipline, which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the nervous system) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, Doctors of Chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.
Some of the secondary conditions that our patients seek help with are:
Ear infections for children and infants
Back and neck aches
Numbness and tingling
Repetitive stress injuries
Pain in hips, shoulders, knees and ankles
Chronic fatigue and depression
Headaches and migraines
Functional Analysis Chiropractic Technique (FACT) Functional Analysis is a technique that focuses on improving two of the most important functions of the body: breathing and movement, specifically walking. The goal of FACT practitioners is to improve breathing efficiency and movement dynamics, with a focus on breathing patterns and gait analysis to determine the cause of nervous system inefficiency. FACT utilizes both manual and instruments such as an Activator or Arthrostim to perform adjustments. FACT practitioners are proficient in caring for those with even the most challenging cases.
General correct breathing patterns are as follows:
Breathing initiates at the pelvis/hips
The breathing wave moves smoothly towards the neck.
Breathing wave then changes direction at the chest and moves downward toward pelvis/hips again
Ratchety movements are a sign of nervous system compensation
Full blocks in the normal breathing wave pattern are a sign of hyperventilation and subluxation.
Reversals in patterns (e.g., initiation at chest) are a sign of subluxation.
Functional Analysis works by increasing appropriate sensory input into the patient’s central nervous systems painlessly and effectively. It leads to profound neurological changes that benefit everyone – no matter what symptom or level of health they are currently experiencing.
Just a few examples of Pathological Breathing Patterns:
Inefficient Breathing Wave, Lumbar Initiation
Inefficient Breathing Wave, Cervical Initiation
Inefficient Breathing Wave, Thoracic Initiation
