Doctor: “Sally, do you think your spine is the same as the next person I’m going to take care of?”
Patient: “Well, no, not at all doctor.”
Doctor: “Do you think we should try to fit you to one table that someone else responds well to, or should we fit the right table to your body to make the best correction?”
Patient: “Well I would prefer you use the right table for my spine!”
I had this conversation with a patient recently and I couldn’t have agreed with her more! Too often in health care, people are confronted with being looked at as a “square peg” with the doctor trying to fit them in a “round hole.”
Are you looking for a different approach to your spine? Are you looking for a different approach for your health? Are you looking to turn off your symptoms? Are you wanting to know the cause? Are you seeking maximize your health potential and experience your highest quality of life? These are all questions you must ask yourself at some point in your health journey.

“Take two ibuprofen every 4-6 hours and apply heat and that should take care of it.” Does this sound familiar at all? Yeah, I thought so.
If you’re like most Americans, you’ve likely been told something along these lines as you went in to see your general physician at some point in your life. Usually followed by you saying to yourself, “thank goodness my doctor knows what to do to fix this,” and, “thankfully it isn’t anything worse.”
This thought is exactly what is keeping you from reaching your true health potential. We have been indoctrinated in the idea that health comes from outside the body, and that it is the doctor’s job to restore your health. This is where doctors, all doctors, have failed their patients. The number one thing preventing you from restoring your health is not taking responsibility for your own health in the first place.
To be a real doctor, of any health discipline, is to teach you how to be responsible for your own welfare within their own discipline. When you become actively engaged in health promoting habits and doing things at home on a daily basis, you will be liberated from the suffocation of relying on a doctor to “give you” your health back.
At Intero Chiropractic, we recognize that your body is intelligent and is always striving for health. We cannot possibly improve on the perfection that is the wisdom that created your body from just two cells. That wisdom is, however, limited by the materials it has to work with (your structure), as your body is constantly being bombarded by chemical, physical and emotional stressors. Our goal is to provide a practical solution where we can reach your health goals together which consists of you doing certain things on a daily basis so that you can be the true champion or your health.

I know, I know… That is a loaded question.
But I think we can all agree that Sherlock Holmes was one of the most incredible private detectives the story books have ever seen! Here’s the reason why….
Not only did he use inductive reasoning based on indisputable facts, but he also correlated all the information he had so that he could get to the bottom of each case. What a brilliant concept! So brilliant in fact that it is the same philosophy that we adopt at Intero Chiropractic when it comes to helping you reach YOUR health goals.
Full spine digital x-rays tell us, first and foremost the extent of structural deterioration, how your body has compensated over time, how your spinal cord and spinal nerves are likely being affected, if there is something more serious in which you should see another health care provider, and HOW to best correct/reduce the problem on you THAT DAY.
Your body is a complex and dynamic organism that is constantly striving to adapt to the ever changing environment. For that reason, our doctors always correlate what they find on you each and every visit upon brief examination to your unique structural x-rays. This is how the doctors can deliver the most specific correction for you, thus reduce stress from the nerve system putting you on the trajectory of overcoming your unique health issues, ideal functional wellness, stress resilience and optimal adaptation and expression of health.

We often get patients in our office that have dealt with pain for several years.
In fact, in 2016, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimated that 20% of US adults suffered from chronic pain.
I can remember a patient suffering from pain for so long that her doctor told her “You know, I think this pain might just all be in your head.” Now, granted, there are patients who malinger regarding their pain, but she was in legitimate discomfort. They were just unable to help her.
Chronic pain simply means that you have been dealing with pain for longer than 6 months. This can be related to headaches, back pain, or any area that you experience pain.
There are several reasons for chronic pain. Here are just 3 reasons that we often see in our office:
