The Whole Poop on Chiropractic

A seven year-old boy was brought by his mom to our clinic this week, several months after she started considering chiropractic care for him to address behavior issues. Her ultimate motivation this week was to solve his longstanding chronic constipation issue. The patient frequently hadn’t moved his bowels for several days at a time, and when he did it was usually accidental. This had dramatic psychosocial implications for him. His pediatrician recommended laxatives to “solve the problem”, but mom knew it was masking symptoms at best, and not doing that very well.

My associate doctor conducted a Stress Response Evaluation (evaluating stress effects on the brain and body) which showed his brain and nerve system are under-aroused. Some hallmark signs of under-aroused brains are poor attention, impulsive, poor concentration, easily distracted and constipation. After the evaluation and first adjustment, the mom begrudgingly made a follow-up appointment for the next week. The next morning she called to schedule an appointment immediately, emotionally telling the front desk “he pooped 3 times since his adjustment yesterday!!!”.

A few adjustments later, this smart and funny kid’s mom has noticed dramatic increases in the length of his ability to focus (we’ll address that in a future blog!) on schoolwork. She also noted a positive shift in the energy of their household, and great relief that she doesn’t need to discuss bowel movements constantly with a boy his age any more. His mood and confidence are greater. Please share this case with friends who may be having this experience with their kids – you could spark a shift in the better for their family.

What is Thompson Technique?

This technique was developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson and has completely evolved into one of the most utilized approaches because of its results. With this being said, this technique is unique because it requires the use of an adjusting table that actually moves with the adjustment, allowing for decompression of the disc and a natural healing approach for those who are suffering from ill health.

This is a specific chiropractic technique that uses mechanical and hands-on manipulation / adjustment which is primarily utilized to support healing of cervical and lumbar disc herniation, non-disc spinal disorders such as arthritis, and to increase mobility of spinal joints which allows the brain to communicate healing more efficiently.

Dr. Pat has used this technique in his practice for more then a decade.  This technique has a proven track record of interrupting the stress response and increasing function.  When combined with the ability that Koren Specific Technique provides it increases the potential for amazing results.

What is Koren Specific Technique?

Koren Specific Technique (KST for short) is a revolutionary chiropractic adjusting technique that provides our practice members with efficient and lasting results. Discovered by Dr. Tedd Koren in 2003, this technique is gentle yet very powerful.

Using an adjusting instrument called an ArthroStim that allows for precise and specific adjusting, there is no twisting, cracking, or popping. All ages benefit from KST chiropractic care from newborn to elderly and everyone in between. Because of the neurological (brain-based) nature of the post-doctoral study our doctor has pursued, he has found that KST chiropractic is the perfect way to “ask the body” what needs correction, which honors the wisdom of the brain and nervous system by never doing too much or too little.

Prenatal Chiropractic Care

At our offices, our doctors are highly trained in prenatal chiropractic care. This type of care is essential to consider, because during pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.

Establishing pelvic balance and improving function is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is not balanced, it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A comprimised pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as C-sections. (Many of our patients that were born Cesarean have health problems later in life.)

What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits for women who are pregnant, just as it can benefit women who wish to get pregnant.

Potential benefits of chiropractic care before/during pregnancy include:

  • Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing labor and delivery times
  • Relieving associated aches & pains
  • Helping to prevent a potential cesarean delivery

Call our offices today (207) 897-2332 to schedule a free consultation with either Dr. Pat to learn more about how Brain Based Chiropractic can help with your pregnancy, or drop us a line below and our team will reach out to you ASAP.

Nutritional Testing and Whole Food Supplements

 

Simply stated, food is the essence of life. What we put into our bodies has the power to be life sustaining or life-depleting.

The human body is a self-healing and self-regulating machine. It miraculously extracts from food that which it needs and rids itself of the rest. Due to the business side of food and sustainability, many manufacturers have added chemicals, preservatives, additives, dyes, and other inert ingredients to enhance shelf life and profits. Unfortunately, these ingredients can be life-depleting over time.

For many people, food and diet are very problematic. Instead of being a source of nourishment, food has become an area of conflict and confusion- endless weight loss dramas, eating disorders, cravings, addictions, body image obsessions and never-ending searches for “the best” nutritional system.

It is our intention to support any and all patients with their nutritional needs. We would be honored to provide you with guidance when it comes to nutrition and overall lifestyle. This is why we would like to offer you the opportunity to schedule a Nutritional Consultation at either of our practices so that we can provide you with personalized recommendations and guidance.

Dr. Pat practices Morphogenic Field Technique (MFT), an exciting revolution in nutritional counseling. The goal of MFT is to improve cellular communications with the exact nutritional needs at the cell level.  After years of clinical success, Dr. Pat has observed that patients who are constantly tired, in pain or otherwise symptomatic have very “small” or unbalanced M-Fields.  Conversely, people who are symptom free and full of energy have very “large” and balanced M-Fields.

A nutritional protocol will be custom tailored for your unique needs while honoring the wisdom of your own body.

To inquire about MFT or to schedule a consultation, simply list your contact info in the form below and someone from our team will reach out ASAP.




Massage Therapy

We recognize that your ability to RELAX is essential to living a life filled with vitality. If you experience back or neck pain, poor blood circulation, migraines, trouble sleeping, low energy levels, soreness, or you simply need some time to de-stress, you should consider scheduling some time with our massage therapist, who works with our doctors to tailor your massage to your specific health needs.

This massage could include a combination of Swedish Massage, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, Structural Relief Therapy,

specific techniques for those who have been in motor vehicle accidents, Energy Work, Reflexology, Pregnancy Massage, and Sports Specific Massage.

After your massage, you may feel younger, with increased energy, decreased pain, a strengthened immune system, and improved lymph drainage.

Brain Balance and Stress Response Evaluation

The combination of KST Chiropractic Care and the NeuroInfiniti examination is a large part of what makes our office so unique. The NeuroInfiniti technology allows Dr. Keiran to see exactly how well your unique brain and nervous system is functioning under stress. This medical-grade research equipment allows our doctor to see exactly how each patient’s brain/body physiology is responding to their life’s stress and more importantly, how well they are recovering from it.

Koren Specific Chiropractic Care (KST) gives the doctor the ability to ask the body where to begin and end, much like knowing the combination to a lock. This method detects more and different subluxations than we could with other techniques, and also adjust structures in the body in different directions.  It allows for easy assessment of TMJ, headaches caused by head traumas, PTSD, and so many others.  Our office was the first in the state to offer this high level of care.

With the use of the NeuroInfiniti and KST, Dr. Pat is able to make care recommendations that are tailored to every unique individual’s brain state and healing potential. The exam is painless and non-invasive, sensors are attached to the head, hands and ears with paste.  Dr. Pat frequently requests this exam on the first visit and again for re-examination purposes.
