Is Chiropractic Care Right For Me?

People are using chiropractic treatment from hundreds of years. Read seven FAQ’s about Chiropractic Care.

What Does a Chiropractor Do?


The doctor of chiropractic analyzes your body for vertebral subluxation, a severe form of spine and nerve stress, using his/her hands and other analysis tools, and then corrects or removes any spinal nerve stress using various spinal adjustment techniques.

What is Subluxation?


Subluxations come from stress.  It may occur in infancy from a difficult birth or from childhood falls.  Later in life, emotional tension or stress can gradually damage your spine or violent injuries from automobile accidents or sports can suddenly knock you “out of whack”.

Nearly everyone eventually gets spinal nerve stress and so is affected by subluxations.  It is a “hidden epidemic” and it is for that reason that we all need to have our spines checked for this condition by a doctor of chiropractic every once in a while, just as we get our eyes, teeth and blood pressure checked!

Chiropractic Care Only For Spinal Cord?


All kinds of conditions are treated with chiropractic care, such as colds or ear infections, PMS, spinal or disc problems, arthritis, insomnia, stress, vision problems, headaches, allergies, bedwetting, colic, high blood pressure-the list is long! And yet, please remember, the goal of chiropractic treatment is not the treatment of disease but rather the enhancement of health through the reduction of spinal nerve stress (vertebral subluxation complex).

The above list may seem long as though chiropractic were a Panacea. The truth is that most textbooks list over two hundred diseases. Please be mindful of the fact that chiropractic care is not like one drug used for one condition, but on the contrary, it is a complete healing art within itself, concerned with the systems of the body such as nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, eliminatory, reproductive, hormonal, musculoskeletal, etc., and seeks to correct health problems within those systems.

When Did Chiropractic Start?


The first chiropractic patient was treated  in 1895.  Dr. D.D. Palmer performed the first chiropractic” spinal adjustment” on his deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard. Lillard’s hearing returned and Palmer thought he had discovered a cure for deafness. But as patients with digestive troubles, sciatica, menstrual trouble, migraine headaches, epilepsy, heart problems, back pain and many other conditions responded to spinal care, Palmer realized that he had discovered something more far-reaching indeed.

What Is A Spinal Adjustment?

spine-adChiropractors perform treatments by working with the bones and nerves of the spinal column and spinal cord respectively.
Chiropractors spend years of highly specialized training in order to locate where misplaced spinal vertebrae are impinging the nerves which travel down the spinal cord and out through the spinal column to the muscles, organs and glands of the body.  After locating the vertebrae impinging the nerves (subluxations) the chiropractor, using various highly specialized techniques, is able to replace the misplaced vertebrae and thus release pressure on the nerves. That is called a spinal adjustment

Can Medical Patients Have This Treatment?

You can receive chiropractic treatments even if under medical care.  Having your spinal nerve stress corrected is important no matter what other type of care you’re receiving. You can have your spinal column checked for vertebral subluxations by a doctor of chiropractic and still visit a doctor of homeopathy, naturopathy, osteopathy or medicine. M.D.’s and other healers cannot tell if you’re suffering from spinal nerve stress (vertebral subluxations) and are not trained in correcting it.

No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit from a healthy spine. Spinal health can be as important for your overall healing as proper nutrition. Are you and your family carrying the silent killer, the vertebral subluxation complex, in your spines? Only a chiropractic spinal checkup can tell.

Post Chiropractic Treatment Care

In Chiropractic there are other significant factors besides vertebral adjusting, including five laws to obey for those who desire health and longevity:

  1. Proper nutrition
  2. Adequate rest
  3. Moderate exercise
  4. A positive mental attitude
  5. Proper nerve supply.

Among the many things contributing to your health:

  • The quality of the air
  • Food and water you take in
  • How you handle emotional stress
  • Your inherited weakness and strengths
  • Your use of drugs, exercise, and relaxation
  • A healthy spine is absolutely essential
  • In some people it is a major factor and can make the difference between a life of health
  • Strength and vitality or a life of disease, weakness and disability

What Our Patients Say About Us

Google Reviews:

I never knew much about chiropractic, but now I couldn't imagine going on without it. Dr. Gilmore has helped so much with my allergies and constant headaches. After just a few weeks of adjustments I was able to completely kick all of my allergy medications - I was taking three separate medications per day so this was a blessing in itself. Not to mention he is such a knowledgeable and considerate doctor, and I know that I am in the best hands under his care. I highly recommend going to see him!read more

I was diagnosed with a few conditions in my lower back in November of 2015. My orthopedic surgeon recommended doing physical therapy so we could try and put off surgery as long as possible. Physical therapy did nothing for me. I had trouble going from sitting to standing completely upright and I had constant aching pain. The sad part of the story is that I’m not even 30 yet! I used to see a chiropractor in high school for neck issues so I figured I’d give chiropractic a try for my conditions. I started out going 2 times a week every week and I noticed my pain was gradually subsiding. I now go once a week just to keep up with it, but I barely have any pain. I couldn’t be happier with the choice I made! Dr. Gilmore and his team are fabulous! I love knowing that I can walk in whenever and be seen within the hour. I just wish they were open on fridays too. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone in need of relief of their back pain.read more

Dr. Gilmore has great bedside manner. He was honest and accurate about my condition and the expectations of improvement of pain relief and functionality of my back. I have been going for over five years and highly recommend him. If you're skeptical about chiropractors (as I was) but do not want to take a life time of pills and would like avoid the risks of surgery then give him a chance.read more

Dr. Gilmore is a great listener and really works to try and understand your individual issues. I am a rather complex case and he still hasn't given up working with me. He is very knowledgable, but will tell you if he doesn't know the answer to your question rather than beat around the bush with you like some doctors do. I have seen other chiropractors, and I drive an hour and a half just to see Dr. Gilmore!read more

When I first came to Gilmore Chiropractic, I was in tears with severe pain. Dr. Gilmore took the time to take X-rays and thoroughly evaluate my condition. He wanted to address the real problem as opposed to merely treating the symptom. He and his staff genuinely want their patients to be pain-free and well! I highly recommend Dr. Gilmore!read more

Good stuff had never been to a Chiropractor. Had neck pain - left and my neck hurt worse for about 45 minutes. Miraculously it never hurt again after that!
