According to the textbook Gray’s Anatomy, “the nervous system controls and coordinates all of the organs and structures of the human body.” Now that’s a really important system! So vital, in fact, that our bodies have a built-in, moveable housing to constantly protect it — our skull and spine.
Our approach to chiropractic care is about simply allowing that important nervous system to do its job! To do this, we’ve trained extensively in gentle techniques to support the nervous system, and further, help remove interference and tension within it. Because, as mentioned above, every organ system in our body depends on the uninhibited function of your brain, spinal cord, and nerves.
Above all, we stand for empowering you. We take the time to get to know you and your story. When healing happens here, it’s because of your body’s ability to heal, and not any “special powers” in our hands. Whether it’s you, your newborn baby, or even your pet, we believe in first looking at the whole being before us, then looking for a root cause to an issue or set of symptoms, and lastly, creating a plan to correct the issue as opposed to a quick patch-up job. No cookie-cutter care here!
We are trained in Webster, MC2, Activator, Talsky Tonal, Craniosacral, and Applied Kinesiology techniques.
NERVOUS SYSTEM SCANS
We use state-of-the-art, safe technology to help us get to know your health story even better.
Heart Rate VariabilityYour HRV scan gauges the resilience of your nervous system under stress. It determines the equilibrium of your autonomic nervous system, indicating whether you're in acceleration or deceleration mode. Moreover, it provides insights into the performance of parasympathetic nerves, such as the Vagus nerve.
sEMG - Static ElectromyographysEMG evaluates the communication between nerves and the spinal muscles responsible for posture. It provides insights into muscle energy efficiency, which can highlight potential sources of fatigue and muscle imbalances.
ThermographyRolling thermography measures temperature variations at multiple points along your spine. We view this as our 'deep heat' assessment, as inflammation and nerve disruptions often lead to uneven temperature rises from one side to the other. This gives us an insight into how your nervous system is functioning in different areas.
CLA INSiGHT is a non-invasive, computerized set of tests that allows us to get a baseline of how your body is holding up to the stressors you’re experiencing. It helps to measure how both your spine and nervous system is functioning as a unit, how those nerves are communicating with your tissues and organ systems, and how your body is adapting to stress!
These quick scans allow us to obtain real and accurate data about your health. In return, this can help us pinpoint a cause or causes to what you might be experiencing symptomatically.
They’re scientific, gentle, pain-free, and non-invasive for your entire family and kids — even newborn babies!
We like to break it down this way. A body and nervous system is consistently encountering, handling, and adapting to life stressors from three primary categories:
traumas (physical stress such as child birth, injuries, or car accidents)
toxins (chemical stress such as poor nutrition, environmental exposure, etc.)
thoughts (emotional stress such as relationships, mental health, work)
The INSiGHT scans are made up of these three important test results, in addition to gathering as much relevant health history information about you as we can possibly get to help connect the dots in how to best care for you!
Meridian Therapy is an ancient form of healing, focusing on balancing the body’s life-force energy or 'qi' by stimulating its energy pathways, or meridians. By targeting specific points along these meridians, this therapy works to restore balance and optimal energy flow in the body, contributing to overall wellness and healing.
Dr. Livingston seamlessly integrates Meridian Therapy with chiropractic care to enhance the body’s natural healing capabilities. This blended approach ensures not only the structural alignment of the body but also the balanced flow of energy, addressing health concerns from a holistic standpoint.
In conjunction with this therapy, Dr. Livingston employs techniques like cupping and gua sha as needed. Cupping creates suction on the skin, facilitating the flow of ‘qi’, while gua sha involves scraping the skin to improve circulation. These techniques augment the healing process, providing a comprehensive approach to your well-being.
At Sol Chiropractic, it's about more than just adjustments—it's about integrating diverse healing modalities to nurture your body, mind, and spirit on your journey to optimal health.
Balanced Energy Flow: Harmonizes the body's life-force energy or 'qi', promoting a sense of well-being and balance within the body's internal systems.
Enhanced Healing: Stimulates specific points along the body’s energy pathways or meridians, aiding in the relief of various health conditions and boosting the body’s natural healing capabilities.
Stress and Pain Relief: Offers a holistic approach to managing stress and pain by addressing the underlying energy imbalances and blockages contributing to discomfort and tension.
"There is a vast difference between treating the affects and adjusting the CAUSE"
Two for one! Being trusted to care for expecting moms is one of our greatest honors. Not only do the adjustments help to support mom... they support baby, too! By aiming to restore mom’s pelvic balance, to remove costly spinal subluxation, and to release ligamentous tension... baby gets clear messages and more wiggle room.
We believe the carrying and birthing of a child is a beautifully natural process, and together, we share a common goal: safer, easier births. From shorter labor times, to reduced nausea, to decreased pain, to optimal baby positioning... We do believe ‘mom’ is another word for ‘superhero’. We’re thankful to be your sidekick!
So, whether you are trying to conceive or are already pregnant, having a nervous system that is clear and connected creates an optimal environment for a comfortable and healthy pregnancy. When her body is in balance as she undergoes a significant body transformation, a healthy nervous system by means of consistent chiropractic care allows for optimized position, growth, and connection with the newest member of your family.
PEDIATRIC & INFANT CARE
Many families opt for spinal check-ups for their newborns due to potential spinal trauma during or even before birth. Adjustments for our youngest patients are exceptionally gentle, so gentle that most babies sleep right through them. No twisting, cracking, or popping — ever. We utilize specialized training to care safely for your newborn, applying only the gentle pressure you'd use to test an avocado's ripeness.
A common sentiment we hear from parents is, “I wish I’d known about this kind of chiropractic care for my child earlier!” Especially when they witness improvements in issues like sleep disturbances, digestion irregularities, frequent ear infections, recurrent illnesses, missed milestones, and bedwetting.
The beauty of it? The solution can be simpler than imagined. The same inherent power that transforms two cells into a complete human being also powers their healing. Our role is to help unlock that potential.
In essence, the child's nervous system knows best. By alleviating its tension, we facilitate healing. It's always a good time to have your child's health checked, as we offer assessments to determine how we can assist. After all, healthy children grow up to be healthy adults!
