Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a safe, natural form of health care. It focuses on spinal health as it relates to the overall function of the human body. Here at Wheeler Chiropractic & Acupuncture Clinic, we offer individualized chiropractic care to all those in need. From caring for small babies to older adults—we are committed to helping people live well as organically as possible, beginning with the spine.

What Is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care involves the evaluation, identification, and correction of any interferences within the nervous system. The spine is made of 24 moveable vertebrae, which move in 14 different combinations of motion. There are 31 paraspinal nerve roots and 1.2 million nerve fibers at the end of each one.

When there are disruptions in any of the above motion, various tissues are negatively affected. Chiropractic care works to improve the innate movement of the body. This form of natural care encourages the normal function of the spine, and in turn, allows your entire body to operate the way it was originally designed.

Patients come to us for a variety of reasons. We see everything from neck soreness to severe sciatic nerve pain. No matter the intensity of your admitting complaint, chiropractic care can most likely offer you relief and long-term healing.

Chiropractic care has been proven beneficial in addressing more than neck pain and low back pain. It has also been known to address many other symptoms, such as

  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle and Foot Pain
  • Headaches

  • Infertility
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Asthma

  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Poor sleep

Have you been suffering from one or more of the above symptoms? We are here for you. As this is not a complete list of all the ailments that chiropractic care may help, be sure to reach out to us with questions regarding your specific condition.

Dr. Wheeler specializes in a variety of gentle, effectice adjustment techniques. Of his chosen approaches to care, he most commonly performs the following:

Specific Prone Technique –This is our preferred technique. It allows the patient to lie facing down during the adjustment. This way, their spine is accessible in all three zones: the neck, the mid-back, and the low back. Soft manual pressure is then used to make necessary corrections.

The Diversified Technique – This method is a gentle hands-on, manual adjustment.

Activator Method® – This is our preferred technique for infants, small children and elderly adults. It involves the use of a handheld instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to perform adjustments. By using this tool, a specific adjustment can be delivered gently, with very low force and without noisy pops and cracks.
