Who can benefit from chiropractic care?Skeleton Diagram

Chiropractic care is the ultimate way of getting you on a new path to optimal health by improving much more than just range of motion and pain.  From babies, to seniors, everyone can benefit from chiropractic care through a natural, safe and effective approach to health.

What do chiropractors look for?

Chiropractors look to the spine and the nervous system for areas of dysfunction between your brain, spine, and the rest of your body. These dysfunctions are specifically called subluxations. Signs of subluxation may show up in the body as symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, asthma, acid reflux, constipation, infertility and thyroid problems to name a few. Symptoms are a way for your body to communicate that something has gone wrong. When symptoms arise it’s time to start listening to your body!

What causes subluxations?

Subluxations or dysfunctions of the spine and nervous system can happen due to trauma (such as a car accident), a repetitive stress injury, and even from poor lifestyle choices.

How do chiropractors find and address health issues? 

Dr. Christen Schutt finds subluxations in the body by conducting a detailed history and examination and by getting x-rays of your spine.  Using our amazing state of the art CLA Scan technology we are also able to measure the function of your nervous system and provide you with a number value associated with your current health status known as your CoreScore.  By pin-pointing the exact location of the subluxations we can begin correcting them through very specific adjustments to the spine. This restores function and communication within the nervous system and allows your body to do the healing!

How will chiropractic help me and my family achieve our health goals?

By looking at the nervous system for subluxation we can get to the root cause of why the problem occurred in the first place.  Interference between the brain and the rest of your body can inhibit healing, and over time, can lead to disease if left untreated. Since the spine and nervous system controls every cell, muscle, tissue, and organ in the body, we think it’s a pretty big deal to keep it healthy.

Is chiropractic beneficial for kids?

Chiropractic care is even more important for babies and children. Subluxations often start from the birthing process itself, followed by many tumbles, bumps and falls that are all too common in childhood.  All injuries, even minor, can cause problems that remain silent in their bodies until later in life. Getting kids checked for subluxation is essential in preventing early onset of health challenges and keeping them healthy in all stages of growth and development.Through natural and gentle techniques, kids are able to enjoy being kids and parents can ensure their children are living up to their greatest health potential.

Yes and yes! More and more mothers-to-be are discovering the many benefits of chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. Chiropractic care is an amazing way to keep mamas comfortable in pregnancy and keep baby happy and healthy in utero. During pregnancy, the body goes through so many changes including postural changes that put more strain on the spine, hips and pelvis, which can affect movement, standing, sitting and sleep quality. Chiropractors are able to support mothers through these changes with natural, gentle techniques pre and postpartum. Adjusted mama's have less pain, better movement and are more relaxed and comfortable throughout their pregnancies and after delivery. 


Chiropractic care can begin at any point in the pregnancy but it is best to begin as early as possible, especially if symptoms of a stressed system are experienced. Dr. Christen utilizes Webster technique and a specific adjusting table to allow for a comfortable adjustment. Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces nerve system stress, balances pelvic muscles and ligaments and optimizes the mother's pelvic function in pregnancy and birth. Using Webster technique, we are able to remove stress on the pelvis so it is in optimal position for baby throughout pregnancy and most importantly for delivery. Getting adjusted in pregnancy often has the additional benefits of shorter delivery times, fewer interventions, safer delivery, better recovery for mom and baby, improved nursing and many more.
