WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?

Chiropractic was first developed in the United States more than 100 years ago and has flourished into a profession that encompasses a wide variety of techniques practiced by highly trained doctors. These techniques are safe, non-invasive, drug-free, and appropriate for children, adults, and the elderly.

The chiropractic physician views the nervous system as the key for understanding human health and disease. The brain communicates with the body via the spinal column and peripheral nerves. Besides thinking and feeling, it controls all basic functions of the body including movement, sensation, digestion and elimination. Because of its governing role, the nervous system has powerful and far-reaching possibilities for healing.

Within the broad universe of chiropractic techniques, there is a basic division between the more commonly practiced manual manipulation techniques and the low-force chiropractic techniques. Axial Stability Method, the only chiropractic method practiced at the Lydian Center, is a low-force technique. We do not move bones or induce cavitations. With subtle, sophisticated kinesiology techniques, using an activator, we work with the brain to improve the functioning of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. In our experience, Axial Stability Method can have wide ranging positive effects not only on pain and biomechanical dysfunction, but also on broader brain integration problems such as developmental delays, poor coordination, emotional disregulation, sensory processing issues, and learning disabilities.
