Spinal Health & Wellness
According to chiropractic philosophy, no part of your body escapes the dominance of your nervous system. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments, called subluxations, can cause poor health or function, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord itself. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally.
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn't use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment - the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment - corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own. Many chiropractors often offer other services to provide patients multi-faceted approach to wellness.
Dr. Walsh of CARE Natural Wellness Center offers holistic health services for all ages to correct the cause of health issues. He uses Nutrition Response Testing, a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of imbalances in the body’s organ systems. Some causes may include heavy metal toxicity, chemical toxicity, food or other environmental sensitivities, immune challenges and scars that have not healed properly.
Dr. Walsh explains, “Because we have found that no two bodies are the same, and ‘anything can cause anything’, we design a health improvement program tailored to the individual.” This program includes diet and lifestyle recommendations as well as supplementation, which may include whole food supplements, vitamins and herbs, and/or homeopathic remedies. This natural approach allows the body to heal itself as it is designed to do.
Because Dr. Walsh believes that education is vital to empowering people to take responsibility for their own health, he offers regular monthly health talks and volunteers his time speaking to community groups.
