NETWORK CHIROPRACTIC CARE
In our office we primarily use a form of gentle chiropractic care, called Network Spinal Analysis. Network was developed by Dr. Donald Epstein in 1983. Network uses a series of light touches contacts along the spine to assist the nervous system in re-establishing the communication of proper nerve signals between the brain and the body. This promotes the body-mind in releasing blockages and creating a higher level of function.
We offer three levels of care, Level 1 or Relief Care, is designed to help your spine and body unwind the surface layers of tension so you move better, stand taller and feel more ease inside. Level 2 also known as corrective care, helps us get to the root of the problem. It builds on Level 1 and helps the nervous system to re-pattern and release the more chronic, underlying areas of tension and dis-ease to create a more long-lasting change. Level 3 is Wellness/Maintenence Care, which progressively bring practice members to a greater and greater levels of alignment and connectedness, while optimizing overall body function.
Network does not attempt to manually, or by instrument, manipulate spinal fixations structurally (often associated with a snapping or popping sound). Instead, by working with specific regions of the spine, Network targets certain brain centers to produce a global unwinding effect while teaching the body to learn new responses that allow it in developing new internal strategies for healing, adapting to stress, and enhancing overall well-being. Because this form of chiropractic is so gentle and safe, it is an effective form of chiropractic care that can be regularly used by anyone...from newborns, to seniors.
