Chiropractic Care

The nerves that run throughout your body are responsible for telling muscles to fire, organs how to run, and your body how to function optimally. The brain sends messages to the body and the body back to the brain. Immediately after leaving the brain, on their way down the spinal cord, these messages must first pass-through atlas, the top bone in the spine. Atlas surrounds the brainstem, which many nerves for the function of the brain and organs come from, thus it is very important in our ability to thrive. A slight misalignment of atlas can interfere with messages to the body on a global scale.

Nerves can also be interfered with at a segmental level, causing an increase in the body’s fight or flight response, producing dis-ease of the system.

We Do Not Treat Symptoms

Nerve interference can be removed through the chiropractic adjustment. Note that chiropractic does not directly treat your condition. We remove nerve interference that can cause many common issues, such as

  • Brain fog
  • Ear infections
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hip Pain
  • Knee pain
  • Low back pain
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neck pain
  • Post-concussive syndrome
  • Seizures
  • Shoulder problems
  • Sinus congestion
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Vertigo
  • Visual acuity

Not Your Average Chiropractors

Dr Tarnowski reviewing x-rays with a patientHere at Origins Chiropractic and Wellness we want to see you out living your life, not constantly in our office. Our goal is to help you heal and be healthy long-term. We do not put people on care plans for this reason, as holding an adjustment is where the healing really occurs. The longer the adjustment is held the more you can live and thrive. Every visit we are evaluating your care and healing to see if we can push that time between adjustments even further until we reach maintenance care, where you are only coming in as your body needs for wellness check-ups.

Dr. Lanza is an expert in the cranio-cervical junction and atlas (C1). Due to the fact that atlas surrounds the brainstem, she uses specific x-rays to get a 3D view of the atlas, uses precise measurements to get the exact factors to adjust you at, and takes a post-x-ray to see the immediate changes made. The post-x-ray also helps modify the factors to make the adjustment even more specific to you. Dr. Tarnowski looks at the entire spine, adjusting intersegmental, aiming to free up nerve interference. X-rays with measurements of the segmental difference allow Dr. Tarnowski to move the segment that has nerve interference in the correct direction to facilitate proper biomechanics and healing.

Gentle, Science-Based Care

When it comes to your health there is no guesswork. Instead, we utilize before and after x-rays, along with a series of other checks. Your x-rays are analyzed to give us specific measurements that we adjust you according to. The doctors use these exact measurements and factors to adjust you. Due to the high level of specificity very little forced is required, making care safe for all ages. Each adjustment is catered to you specifically.
