If you’ve experienced our office, you’ve probably realized that this is kind of a strange place that we have here. We do things just a little bit differently than you’d typically see.
We’re a chiropractic office that many families bring their kids to first before the adults even come in. We’re an office that maybe the parents are bringing the kids in first before they’re seeing their primary care doctor or a specialist to have medication because they’ve realized a couple of different things. For one, we’ve learned that, with some very natural techniques, that chiropractic care has been able to help people with things like ear infections and colic and asthma and immune issues and attention deficit disorder, bedwetting, a number of neurological issues, and so parents are bringing their children to a chiropractor, to us, for that reason.
But it’s a whole lot more than simply taking care of the symptom, the particular symptom or problem that we’re experiencing. As a chiropractor, the whole premise of chiropractic is four, we’re going to narrow it down to four really important things. Number one is real simply that our body has an ability to heal itself. Your body can heal and regulate itself. It maintains itself all the time all by itself and you never really have to think about it, like right now you can sit here and your heart beats and your lungs breathe and your digestive system digests your breakfast, lunch, or dinner, whatever you’ve had most recently. If you haven’t eaten in a while, your stomach’s growling but all that stuff is happening and you never really have to think about it.
There’s one part of the body that has ultimate control over this, and that’s the nervous system and what happens is the brain sends messages down the spinal cord out of all these nerves and those nerves travel out to different parts of the body. As long as that pathway is clear, your body functions really well, but different things can happen that will affect the way the body is functioning. Now let’s say there’s a little misalignment in the spine. That puts pressure on those nerve roots and so the brain’s trying to send messages to different parts of the body and those messages aren’t going to get there the way that they’re supposed to if there is an imbalance in the spine.
So as a chiropractor, what I do is we try to figure out where are those places where there’s imbalance, how are they affecting the nervous system. We work on fixing them with very gentle adjustments and, as we do that, your body’s going to feel better, you’re going to perform better. In the end, we’re going to be a lot healthier in the process. Our children will benefit greatly from making sure that their spine and nervous systems are functioning really well, and that’s why a parent would bring in their child first to a chiropractor even before they go to a chiropractor themselves or even before they take their children to other places for healthcare.
Just know that in our office we’re very committed to relieving, rebuilding, and restoring and we’ll talk about that. In relieving, we work on the symptom. We want to make sure that whatever it is that you’re experiencing or feeling or struggling with is better. That’s the first step. But then we want to make sure that we’re actually correcting the underlying problem. It’s one thing for you to feel better, but if that problem isn’t corrected it’s just going to come back. So then we take steps to really rebuild, to strengthen and stabilize the body so that that problem we were experiencing before is actually improved, it’s actually getting better, and then, in this process, once we get things corrected, we want to, one, keep things functioning well, but then do other things to support our health in positive ways so that over our lifetimes we experience better and better health over time instead of the progressive decline that we learn to expect.
That’s what we’re committed to at Tompkins Family Chiropractic. It’s what I’m committed to for you and I wish you a day of great health. If at any point that you want to experience that here in our office, I invite you to schedule a time to come in and we can sit down and talk about how we can help to improve your health, how we can help you with your symptom but how also we can help to correct that underlying problem and how we can maintain and improve your health over time. So over the years you get healthier and healthier every single day.
That’s my mission for you, I’m Dr. Emil Tompkins, and I hope you have a healthy day.
