Chiropractic Care
Focused on Healing

Chiropractic care is a profession in health care that deals with the musculoskeletal system of the body. Like all Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Coleman will diagnose, treat and prevent disorders of the nerves, muscles and bones. The main objective is to remove nerve interference, allowing the body to heal itself without drugs or invasive procedures.

Chiropractic care works with the musculoskeletal system of the body. Dr. Samantha Coleman D.C. diagnoses, treats and prevents disorders of the nerves, muscles and bones caused by nerve interference. Removing nerve interference allows communication between the brain and body so the body can heal itself without drugs or invasive procedures.

At ChiroSolutions Center, we use a conservative and natural treatment approach, which uses the body’s ability to heal on its own without drugs and surgeries.

Many people think of the spinal adjustment when they think of chiropractic care. Those spinal adjustments help to decrease pain and increase range of motion. In our office, we work to take it one step further by restoring the shape of the spine and improving the curves. You might ask,  “how do we do that without surgery?” We use a combination of mirror image exercises, mirror image adjustments and spinal traction, all tailored to you and your preference to make the changes. Research shows returning the shape of the spine closer to a more normal position results in long term reduction and improved quality of life.

When the shape of the spine is not where it should be, it affects the function of every organ, tissue and cell of the body. Those organs might not be working optimally because of that stress. You might know the phrase “structure dictates function.” As the spine is moved closer to normal, nerve supply to those organs is improved. Many health problems can also improve when that nerve function and the spine is improved. Published research studies show CBP chiropractic care can help with headaches, post whiplash symptoms, sports injuries, scoliosis or even problems such as childhood ear infections, colic, asthma, bed wetting, ADHD.

Stress is all too common in our society. From upset stomachs to back pain and muscle stiffness, the function of the nervous system is crucial. Our approach to stress is to help normalize the structure and function of your nervous system by finding abnormal shapes in the spine and nervous system and correcting them. This can help restore function, making a profound difference in your response to stress.

Commonly Asked Questions

What is normal spinal alignment?2019-04-08T16:27:29+00:00

Just as there are normal values in all bodily functions such as: temperature, blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels, there are normal curves to the spine. The spine has one ideal position, which minimizes stress on the nervous system, skeletal system and muscular system. This normal position is important in reducing abnormal symptoms, such as pain, as well as improving overall bodily function.

When looking at the spine in the frontal view, the spine should be straight. From the side, the ear should be directly over the shoulder, the shoulder directly over the hip, and the hip directly over the ankle. If these normal structures and postures are not present, stress and strain are placed upon the spine. These stresses and strains lead to breakdown in the tissues, causing dysfunction and eventually pain, and interfering with the normal processes of the nervous system. The restoration of normal structure, as facilitated by your doctor, will lead to normalized function in the body.

Spinal care now, can prevent a number of spine problems later in life. Through a customized treatment plan and lifestyle changes, you can have the freedom from pain you deserve, now and in the future.

Why is good posture so important?2019-04-08T16:26:50+00:00

Posture is a window to the shape of the spinal column. Abnormal posture can be related to a number of health problems and increases stress and pressure on the muscles, ligaments and bones of the spinal column. These abnormal stresses (caused by poor posture) lead to a breakdown of body tissues and eventually cause pain.

Posture is one of the most simple, but also most difficult aspects of our everyday lives. Whether at work or at play, keeping good posture is of utmost importance. The nervous system controls all functions in the body, and posture controls how well the nervous system functions. Losing posture affects not just how you look but how you feel and how well all processes in the body work. Being aware of your posture while sitting, standing, walking, or lying down can make a significant difference in the success of your treatment plan.

Does an adjustment hurt?2019-04-08T16:26:20+00:00

No. In fact, when vertebrae in your spine return to their proper position, you will notice much less stress and tension. Thus, CBP® adjustments actually leave you feeling great. We are confident that your visits to our office, including spinal manipulation and CBP® adjustments, will quickly become one of the highlights of your week.

How long does rehabilitation take?2019-04-08T16:25:57+00:00

We treat patients for as little as a few weeks to as long as two years, depending on their health conditions. The extent to which you choose to benefit from your rehabilitation is ultimately up to you. Each of us is responsible for the quality of our health and well-being. Once a patient’s treatment plan is complete and our goals are achieved, we strongly urge all patients to continue maintenance care to gain long-term, lasting benefits. Regular exercise and healthy eating habits are lifestyle decisions and so is lifetime wellness care.

Many of the patients treated in our office have spinal degeneration (decay), which has taken years and in some cases a lifetime to develop. The trauma of the birth process, slips, falls, accidents and countless other stresses over the course of a lifetime adversely affect the health of your spine. The longer you wait to have your spine checked, the longer it will take to correct postural and structural abnormalities. However, how you choose to use rehabilitation is ultimately up to you. It has been our experience that those who stop care prior to the conclusion of their treatment plan because they are “feeling fine” return with the same challenges, which initially brought them to our office. However, patients who commit to rehabilitation to correct their conditions find their health challenges rarely return, and they enjoy a higher quality of life and health.

What is a CBP® Adjustment?2019-04-08T16:20:41+00:00

A CBP® adjustment is the beginning process of rehabilitating your spine towards normal structure. CBP® certification ensures that the doctors performing the adjustment are trained in the proper way to change the spine.

Just as there are normal values in all bodily functions such as temperature, blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels, there are normal curves to the spine. The spine has one ideal position, which minimizes stress on the nervous system, skeletal system and muscular system. This normal position is important in reducing abnormal symptoms, such as pain, as well as improving overall bodily function.

From the side, the ear should be directly over the shoulder, the shoulder directly over the hip, and the hip directly over the ankle. If these normal structures and postures are not present, stress and strain are placed upon the spine. These stresses and strains lead to breakdown in the tissues, causing dysfunction and eventually pain which interfers with the normal processes of the nervous system. The restoration of normal structure, as facilitated by your doctor, will lead to normalized function in the body.

Why is traction important?2019-04-08T16:21:18+00:00

Traction is the only known conservative method of restoring normal curves to the spine. Traction is simply a sustained force applied to the spine in a specific direction for the purpose of restoring normal spine position. These traction forces are necessary to reduce abnormal spinal curvatures, correct abnormal postures, and will provide increased stability to damaged spines. The proper application of spinal traction in our office will ensure safety and effectiveness of care.

Your spine exhibits many different properties. It will move quickly as a traction force is applied, but it will quickly resume the original abnormal shape. If a force is applied to the spine for a certain amount of time, a change will take place but if removed too soon, the spine will again resume its abnormal shape, similar to Silly Putty. However, if a traction force is applied for more than 10-15 minutes, permanent change is made. That change will become more and more apparent improving posture, structure and function. Types of traction are specific to your diagnosis. Be patient. It can take time for the abnormal spine to become normal. Traction may cause some soreness but should not cause pain. Keep communication lines open with your doctor if you feel possible modifications concerning weight or time might be needed. Your consistency and effort will pay off in a healthy spine.

Why is therapeutic exercise important?2019-04-08T16:22:03+00:00

Most of the time, it is necessary to perform very specific exercises as prescribed by Dr. Coleman. These exercises are designed for your posture and spine, furthering the goal of maintaining maximum spinal correction and function through improved structure. These exercises are different from any other because they are created through careful analysis of your posture, x-rays and ergonomic/postural habits and each is designed to strengthen muscles that have become weak. There are more than 128,000 possible abnormal postures. The exercises are designated specifically for you with the goal of attaining that one normal posture.

Some of the exercises prescribed for you may feel unusual at first. Remember, the exercise is the exact opposite of your abnormal posture. With that in mind, your muscles are not used to working in that position, and it can take time before you grow accustomed. Be patient. Abnormal posture takes time to develop and also takes time to correct. Some soreness might occur which is a good sign that you are performing the exercises properly. Some soreness is expected, but pain is not. Always remember that water consumption can ease soreness. Water is your friend and a key nutrient to your treatment success!

Why are X-rays important?2019-04-08T16:24:04+00:00

X-rays determine where the spine is in relationship to the normal spinal models. Without an X-ray, proper treatment cannot be determined. Properly taken x-rays are like a blueprint of your spine. With X-rays, we can see how an individual spine deviates from normal alignment and allows us to decide on the appropriate treatment. The proper, individualized course of treatment can only be developed once Dr. Coleman has reviewed your X-rays. Dr. Coleman will review your X-rays with you and explain the differences between normal and abnormal alignment. At ChiroSolutions Center, we are not afraid to show you your X-rays, and we tell you if we can make a change back towards normal.

An example, arthritis is another important potential discovery with properly taken X-rays. Arthritis is not a normal process of aging, but abnormal stress on bones and discs from poor posture can cause degeneration. Some people might not realize this degeneration is taking place and can be a painful “time bomb” if not addressed properly.

Where do I get my X-rays?2019-04-08T16:24:49+00:00

At ChiroSolutions Center, you have the added convenience of having your X-rays taken on the premises, during your first appointment.

Can ChiroSolutions Center treat children?2019-04-08T16:25:17+00:00

Children are our most prized assets. Their health is often more important to us than our own.. We look to safeguard one of the most vital, necessary parts of a child’s body, the nervous system. How do we do that? By delicately taking care of the protector of the nervous system – the spine.

Did you know that one of the first parts of an embryo to form is the nervous system? The nervous system provides direction for the formation of the vital organs, muscles and skeleton. Without the proper signal from the growing nervous system, nothing would form properly, and normal growth would not occur.

Dr. Coleman is trained to detect spinal abnormalities in even the youngest spines. She can see abnormal posture, feel muscle spasms, and if needed, verify spinal abnormalities with X-rays. These spinal abnormalities can then be corrected, which prevents related dysfunction later in life. ChiroSolutions Center offers kids the treatment and knowledge to make this prevention last.
