Wilcox Chiropractic brings alignment to mind, body, and soul
Diversified (1st most researched type of chiropractic adjustments) from specific and gentle to subtle, depending on your sensitivity and the area(s) being treated. We have adjusted people of all ages from 1 day old to 102 years old. You may or may not hear a “popping or cracking” sound. Adjustments can help to normalize nerve flow, blood flow and lymph flow, allowing the body to heal itself. Adjustments are usually painless, but this depends on your sensitivity and intensity of pain. About 5% of the population experience more pain after the first adjustment, similar to soreness after exercising. In order to prevent this, we recommend a hot shower/bath, and then applying ice to the effected area(s).
To decrease pressure on the nerve roots and increase joint motion gently.
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
To relax the muscle and fascia. A trigger point is a tight muscle with local tenderness, that often refers pain to other parts of the body. For example, when you squeeze a trigger point in one of the muscles in the neck named SCM, you can feel referral pain behind the eyeball, ear, teeth/gum, or at the base of the skull.
Craniosacral Therapy CST
To balance the brain/skull and cerebral spinal fluid flow. We love CST because it is so gentle, we can even work on people with broken bones. Paraphrased from the Upledger Institute International website: CST is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. CST was founded by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University. Using a soft touch about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

The Cold/low level laser therapy painlessly penetrates or absorbs up to 4 inches deep to promote and speed up healing along the spine and extremities. Theralase laser promotes faster healing by stimulating the mitochondria of the cell to increase the production of what the cell needs in order to heal and inhibit the production of free radicals that cause cell destruction.
