Spinal Adjustments Allow Patients of All Ages Reach Optimal Health and Wellness
Chiropractic care is based on the diagnosis and manipulation of misalignments of the joints, primarily those found in the spinal column. These misalignments, referred to as subluxations, can cause other issues in the body that may start affecting the nerves, muscles and organs if left untreated. Chiropractic adjustments realign the spinal column to fix these subluxations and help patients who suffer from many ailments and injuries that cause chronic pain in the back, neck and other areas of the body.
Not only can chiropractic adjustments help to align the body but they can help people who suffer from other issues including digestive problems, sleep disorders, headaches and fatigue. The spine is the highway that connects the entire body. From brain to tailbone as well as extending outwards, the spine controls and regulates many parts of the body that people do not even realize. There are countless issues that chiropractic care can help with, either as a primary route of treatment or as supplemental with other treatment programs.
Dr. Heimgartner Uses Chiropractic Adjustments for Back Pain, Neck Pain, Herniated / Bulging Discs
Chiropractic care helps restore the body’s natural structure to its optimal state as it was before lifestyle, injury or other circumstances have misaligned it. The spine is like the major highway of all the nervous systems and any blockades can be detrimental to health. Having a misaligned spine can not only cause discomfort or pain but cause problems with other areas of the body as well. These problems occur when there are interruptions in the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. Chiropractic care can correct that.
Back pain, neck pain and other physical ailments often originate in the spine. In order to receive a comprehensive treatment plan, an exact cause of the pain must be determined. When we provide spinal and posture screening to our patients, it serves as the initial step to formulating a specific solution to the problem they are experiencing. These screenings can reveal important information regarding a person’s overall heath and provide a base for an effective course of action.
Chiropractic for Infants, Children and Teenagers
Most people do not realize that infants or children can benefit from chiropractic care just as must as adults. Infants, in particular, are susceptible to a wide range of ailments caused by a traumatic birth or c-section. Misalignments or subluxations put pressure on the spinal nerves and interfere with the body’s ability to coordinate or control phases of growth and development. Chiropractic care for infants and children can correct these potential problems through careful and effective adjustments that remedy misalignments.
Children benefit from chiropractic care because a lot of the problems they experience as adults stems from their childhood. For instance, a child often falls when learning how to walk – sometimes up to 20 times per day. Children also break bones easily and have poor posture (something that is extremely common today).
Posture problems result from spending many hours in front of a computer or television, playing rough with friends or carrying backpacks all day long at school.
Chiropractic care helps with many common childhood ailments and diseases without the need for harmful medication. Many people are unaware of just how many conditions can be treated with chiropractic including ADHD, infantile colic, asthma, bed wetting, constipation, digestive issues and chronic ear infections.

Our Patients Love Us!
Wow! Dr. Nathan Heimgartner was wonderful, and so was his staff. I called in with several issues, and received an immediate appointment. They just moved to their brand new office on Horan and it’s very nice. I got a thorough consultation, therapy, and adjustments and felt the relief immediately. I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to make the call, as I’ve been having increasing pain for several months. If I am feeling this much better after one visit, I really look forward to more treatments.
