The specialization at Chiropractic Essence is Neurologically-based, Principled Chiropractic (Corrective Care). Chiropractic is a non-invasive, holistic and all-natural healthcare approach that looks at a person’s well-being in terms of their entire body rather than just the area where symptoms manifest. Your nervous system controls and coordinates all of the cells, tissues and muscles in your body. It is centered in your spinal cord, and misalignments in the spine can affect the nervous system’s performance, greatly reducing your quality of life and potentially causing numerous health issues.

When your spinal bones aren’t aligned properly, this can lead to a variety of health issues. From mobility problems to headaches and nerve pain, a chiropractor knows how to alleviate these problems using natural, hands-on and non-invasive approaches to correcting spinal misalignments and allow your body to once again heal itself as it should.

While many chiropractors focus on relieving pain in the immediate short term, real correction is intended to allow for long-term improvements, which is Dr. TJ’s focus at Chiropractic Essence. Only through true correction can patients live a full, healthy and happy life of optimal bodily functions.

The “Sick Care” Model

The United States healthcare system is predicated on the model of sick care. That is, people receive medical attention after they get sick rather than undertaking the right model of preventative care. Unfortunately, many doctors and hospitals encourage this method, which is not ideal for patients.

An alternative, and the system upon which principled true chiropractic correction works, is preventative care, or routine maintenance for your body. Rather than waiting until you experience symptoms, chiropractors encourage regular visits to allow you to maintain your spinal health for many years. Similar to regular brushing and flossing of your teeth and visits to your dentist. We don’t wait until there is a significant problem in order to begin care. Your body has an incredible capacity to heal itself, but only if it is properly maintained and allowed to do so.

Principled Chiropractic

This is what principled true chiropractic correction is all about. This form of healthcare is designed to get your body functioning at peak efficiency, and then keep it that way, maintaining your health over your entire life rather than just providing the short-term quick fix. The goal of neurologically-based principled chiropractic is to identify and nail down the underlying causes of any health problem the patient might experience, and address these problems at the source, allowing for permanent or long-term fixes.

Vertebral Subluxation Complex

Vertebral subluxation complex is a serious condition that is far too often overlooked as the underlying cause of health issues. It occurs when the spine misaligns in such a way that pressure is placed on the nerves and spinal cord. This condition severely impacts the body’s natural healing abilities, and which a principled and skilled chiropractor is uniquely qualified to address. At Chiropractic Essence, our staff can
thoroughly examine and diagnose cases of vertebral subluxation and design an individualized plan of action to correct the issue.

Doctors that address vertebral subluxation by simply treating symptoms, on the other hand, the underlying cause may never be diagnosed, and patients will experience increasing difficulties and recurrent symptoms, possibly for years to come.

When it comes to true chiropractic correction vs. the temporary relief approach, the path becomes very clear. Why choose recurring pain and injury when you could maintain your optimal health and healing abilities for life? Call Chiropractic Essence to schedule an appointment to get started on the road to wellness today. We want our local Council Bluffs and Omaha community to reach your full health potential.
