Chiropractic Care

Visiting a chiropractor can help with a number of conditions, including various aches and pains, and chronic headaches. In some cases, a visit to the chiropractor can mitigate the need for painkillers. Multiple randomized control trials (RCT) have shown many benefits of chiropractic care for those dealing with spinal issues, according to Chirobase.

Think about symptoms like a dashboard light in a car. If the oil light comes on, there is no problem with the light, there is a problem with the engine. This is the same with pain. Pain is the light on the dashboard of life. Dr. Lakernick' s job is to figure out why the pain occurs and put together an approach to improve quality of life.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon  a normally functioning nervous system (especially the spine, and the nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body). "Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its environment.

What is a Spinal Adjustment?

In basic terms, the spinal adjustment or spinal manipulation refers to the process in which the doctor of chiropractic skillfully applies controlled force into one or more "subluxated" vertebrae of the spine. The adjustment is also frequently used in the pelvic region to normalize the sacroiliac joints. The adjustment is usually delivered using the hands or through the use of a specialized mechanical tool.

When Should Spinal Adjustments be Given?

Spinal adjustments are applied to certain vertebrae of the spine which are no longer in their proper position or where functioning had become impaired. Vertebrae which lose their normal position or proper motion are commonly termed vertebral subluxations.

Dr. Lakernick is the Michael J of chiropractors! I came to him with pain and discomfort once a week for the past 3 weeks before my MMA fight. I now feel amazing. Great staff, great vibes. Consider booking your appointment with him.

He never seizes to amaze me. It is like he pulls a rabbit from a hat. I came in with a dislocated shoulder, carrying my arm in, and he popped it right back. It was quick and I felt so much better afterwards. The best part was that I never had to miss a day of work because of my injury. I would recommend Dr. Lakernick to anyone.
