What Makes Us Different?
At Stillpoint Family Chiropractic, we are a Brain Based, Wellness Chiropractic office. We recognize that the Nervous System controls everything in the body from blinking, digesting, and sleeping, to cognition, laughter, and hormone balance. If you don't already know, your spine (from tailbone to skull) is a protective shield for your nervous system. Sometimes, whether due to physical stress, mental stress, or even emotional stress, our spine can become misaligned, cutting off the communication from the nervous system to the brain - YIKES! This can be the source of many ailments and diseases such as Migraines, Low Immune System Response, High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Fibromyalgia, Insomnia and more. In infants and children, misalignments can disguise themselves as Colic, Autism, ADD, and Ear Infections.
Stillpoint Family Chiropractic, as the name indicates, is a family chiropractic office. Dr. Mary Grace will check everyone in your family from mom and dad, grandma and grandpa, to infants and their siblings, and even the cat and the dog, or any other pet! Because of her very gentle technique, her adjustments are safe for everybody, including pediatric patients and the elderly. Life happens to everyone. It is beautiful and sometimes chaotic. Get you and your family check-up today!
But don't worry, Dr. Mary Grace will meet you where you are. Her key word is balance. But she will deputize you as the most important doctor you will ever meet. Afterall, your body is your own, and you will know it best. Dr. Mary Grace loves to share her knowledge and experience, and to give you the tools to set health goals for yourself, and to heal from the inside out from any ailment or disease. She loves the simple cases and the difficult cases, and will listen intently and love deeply while you are her patient, and beyond.
What is a SUBLUXATION?
A subluxation is a misalighment of the spine. The prefix "Sub" in this word literally translates as under or below; "Lux" refers to light. When you are subluxated, you are function with under the optimal level of light. Think of a dimmer switch in your home as your brain, would you like it to function on the dimmest setting? Or at the setting that is most illuminating? What about your personality? What about how physically capable you are? What about the amount of love that you could give?
What causes a SUBLUXATION?
A subluxation can be caused in many ways. Sometimes we know exactly when it happened, and sometimes it happens over a long period of time. The common denominator in all examples is stress - physical, chemical, or electromagnetic.
EXAMPLES OF PHYSICAL STRESS:
Improper Exercise Technique
Lack of Exercise
EXAMPLES OF CHEMICAL STRESS:
Negative Thoughts and Emotions
Preservatives, GMO'S, Artificial Additives in Foods
Commercial Household Cleaners
Commercial Cosmetic Products
EXAMPLES OF ELECTROMAGNETIC STRESS:
Bluetooth Head Sets
Wellness Care vs. Health Care
WELLNESS is a proactive process involving raising awareness and making choices that will ultimately lead to a more healthy lifestyle and a more fulfilling life; it is holistic in nature, including all avenues of health - physical, mental, chemical, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, and treating the body for the long term."
(regular chiropractic check-ups, regular exercise, regular community involvement, regular prayer/meditation, proper supplementation, balanced diet, preferably organic, including drinking lots of water, a high probiotic intake, minimal to no grain, minimal to no sugar, high in vegetables)
Sounds good, right?
HEALTH CARE, or what we have come to re-name as TRAUMA CARE, involves immediate treatment of an injury or trauma that could potentially be life threatening, treating the body one day at a time.
(surgery, pharmaceutical drugs, pain killers, antibiotics)
It is important to utilize both types of care, and to use good judgement when each is appropriate.
"Once you go to a Chiropractor, you ALWAYS have to go"
Have you seen your dentist more than once? More than three times? I hope so! Getting your mouth checked and cleaned on a regular basis is a pro-active way of staying healthy. Chiropractic is the same. Our HOPE for you is that we do not find a subluxation, and that if we do, you will find balance and stability as fast as possible. Because even though we love you, we would love to see you less. Part of this is influenced by the choices you make. Do you have a well balanced diet? Do you exercise regularly? Do you make time for family and relaxation? We want you to keep your freedom of choice. Choose well.
