HOW DOES OUR CHIROPRACTIC PROGRAM WORK?
Chiropractic is a very sage and natural form of prevntative care. Our patients experience better overall health and less pain.
A 2007 study of the cost of health care expenses for those who participate in regular chiropractic showed a 60.2% decrease in hospital admissions. Additionally a decrease of 59% in hospital day, 62% outpatient surgeries and procedures, and 85% pharmaceutical costs when compare with conventional medicine. (See the study here)
When the body is out of alignment by even a small amount the nervous system is negatively effected. Keep in mind that your nervous system is the communication pathway to every organ in your body. They are all connected. Your spine is basically the super highway for all of these connections. This means it is very important to have proper alignment of the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine.
You may need to see a chiropractor if…
you’re suffering from any of the following ailments:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Numbness, pain, tingling
- Poor sleep quality
- Injuries due to car accidents or falls
- Taking too many painkillers
- Weak immune system (you’re sick often)
Chiropractic sets healing into motion
Another reason for seeing the chiropractor often is once a person experiences what it feels like to be in perfect alignment and health, they don’t want to stop. They become addicted, not to the adjustments themselves, but to the way that chiropractic helps them to live a pain free health life.
Pretty amazing right?

In order to find relief you may want to consult Dr. Paffenbarger. If your body didn't want you to pay attention to your injuries it would not hurt in the first place.
ANKLE AND FOOT PAIN
Putting your weight on what feels like an injured foot or ankle can be excruciating. There are lots of nerve endings in the foot making it a very sensitive area. Often times the pain experienced in the foot is caused by overcompensation. The body will try to make up for injuries or biomechanical dysfunction further up the body. In reverse, a foot or ankle injury can cause joint alignment issues in the upper parts of the body as well.
