Wellness begins with Alignment
Because the spinal cord rests inside the spinal vertebral column, it is important to keep the spine in its proper alignment. Chiropractic doctors find and remove joint misalignments, called subluxations, so that the flow of nerve energy coming from the spinal cord to each cell in the body can conduct in a healthy manner. Correcting subluxations can be compared to repairing a fuse that has blown and been fixed, allowing the electricity to flow and for the lights to turn back on. Many patients not only feel relief in the problem area they came in for but also find improved overall health. Some feel they sleep better, have more energy, enjoy better digestion, reduce headaches, and more.
Dr. Fullerton uses a gentle approach in her adjustive techniques. She adjusts using diversified technique, cranialsacral therapy, as well as an impulse instrument when needed. She starts each chiropractic treatment by addressing muscle imbalances, using therapeutic massage and neuromuscular release techniques. For injuries old and new, the Rapid Release is an instrument used to break down fibrous adhesions, or scar tissue. These approaches bring about greater mobility and flexibility which increases health and well-being.
As a former gymnast of 14 years, Dr. Fullerton has an increased understanding of exercise therapy to balance muscles and strengthen joints. She is aware of the athletic mentality as she works with athletes throughout the season to keep them on the field. Her strong background in dance and years of teaching gymnastics and water aerobics have given her experience needed in teaching her patients better techniques in joint and muscle health.
Chiropractic is for the whole family. Dr. Fullerton enjoys treating infants, children, pregnant women and men and women of all ages. As a mother of 5 sons and many grandchildren, she can appreciate the health needs of children and teens. Her boys all started their chiropractic care just days after birth and were taught nutrition at an early age. Treating illness naturally allowed her sons to grow up antibiotic free. Chiropractic and nutritional care help support and strengthen the immune system at any age, aiding in prevention of disease.
Chiropractic is a holistic approach, treating the body as a whole system. Rather than chasing symptoms, Dr. Fullerton gets to the root cause of the problem. This means addressing nutritional deficiencies, gland/organ imbalances and the mind-body (psycho-somatic) connection, as they may relate to physical musculoskeletal problems.
