The basic premise of chiropractic is to identify and correct vertebral subluxations, also referred to as nerve interference, in a safe and effective manner. Your brain and nervous system coordinate an inborn intelligence that runs millions of vital bodily functions every day.
Our bodies are able to operate with such perfection that most of us are completely oblivious to it. Instructions are sent via your central nervous system to direct all bodily functions including your respirations, heart beat, digestion, growth, energy levels, quality of sleep, immune responses, and even your thoughts! We live like this until our bodies become overwhelmed and can no longer adapt to the constant physical, chemical and emotional stressors we face on a daily basis. These stressors can cause subluxations that affect the regulating mechanisms.
Only chiropractors are trained to assess, find and remove subluxations with a chiropractic adjustment. During an adjustment, the subluxated vertebrae are unlocked and released from their misaligned positions. The chiropractor is simply the facilitator, removing blockages with an adjustment and allowing the body’s innate capability to heal itself.
Chiropractic is a science, art, and philosophy that promotes natural function and healing potential by looking for the cause of an issue instead of treating a symptom. Chiropractic is grounded in solid, proven scientific principles with chiropractic research being conducted by healthcare experts around the world.
Dr. Rebekah uses the following treatments at Avé. Click on each to learn more.
Drop Table Adjustments - Dr. Rebekah’s Thuli Drop Table is one of the first things you will see when you enter her office. You will notice the table is broken up into sections, with foot pedals on either side of the table. Each section is able to “lift up” approximately ½ inch, then drops with the weight of the patient.
Erchonia Percussor - The Erchonia Percussor is one of Dr. Rebekah’s favorite tools, and patients agree! This is the first tool you will feel at the start of your care. It is a hand-held percussive instrument that allows the doctor to work with the fascia of the body at a very deep, penetrating level with long-lasting effects.
Color Therapy - Color Therapy is a method to assist the body in its natural ability to balance itself. Practitioners of the healing arts have used color for centuries. Color serves to support our vital life force by supplying light energy to the system.
