The purpose of Chiropractic is to restore and maintain the integrity of the relationship between the spinal cord and its nerve roots. These vital nerve pathways are housed in and protected by the bones of the spine. Tiny misalignments of the vertebrae or bones of the spine, which interfere with the function of these nerve pathways, are called SUBLUXATIONS. Subluxations come from many causes and prevent various organs, glands, and tissues from functioning properly.
By means of a Chiropractic adjustment, subluxations are corrected (reduced), thus the normal nerve function restores itself. The goal of Chiropractic is to adjust vertebral subluxations for the purpose of allowing the proper transmission of nerve energy over nerve pathways so that every part of your body may have a proper nerve supply at all times.
This allows the innate (inborn, natural) healing ability of the body to work at maximum efficiency allowing you to express your innate (inborn, natural) potential to the best of the body’s ability.
Dr. Tara is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), and is certified in Webster Technique. Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment for the care of pregnant women. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation and or SI joint dysfunction. In so doing, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e. dystocia). Sacral misalignment may contribute to uterine nerve interference, pelvic misalignment and the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments. The correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these factors.
Dr. Tara is Advanced Proficiency Rated in Activator Technique, which is a gentle, low force technique. Other adjusting techniques that may be used are Diversified, Thompson, Omni Basic, and Applied Kinesiology.
