True Correction vs. Temporary Relief
We believe at Bright Life Chiropractic you deserve to find the solution to current health concern or condition. We belief in you bodies natural ability to adapt, thrive, heal and function vs. masking symptoms with prescription drugs. We use the most advanced technology and technique in chiropractic history to find the cause, known in science as Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Only the Chiropractor is trained to not only find but eliminate subjections with consistent specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments.
Thanks to technological advances and new understanding of the spine and nervous system, we are now able to correct the spine and use pre and post x-rays to document this change. These changes are achieved through a series of specialized gentle adjustments. If we are able to accept your case, a care plan will be recommended based on the pre-existing levels of degeneration in your spine, your age, levels of activity, and your response to an adjustment. Not every spine is correctable for us so we always start with a checkup to evaluate your potential for success in our office.
Very commonly one of the first Vertebral Subluxations to occur in the spine is in the neck. This is for a variety of reasons including the fact that the vertebrae, ligaments, and muscles in the neck are the smallest and the head (in particular in children) is disproportionately heavy in comparison to our body. Small slips and falls as a child or even the birth process itself can result in the small vertebra of the neck becoming displaced or subluxated. The body behaving very intelligently will change our posture, often shifting the head well in front of the shoulders and leaning the head to one side or the other to reduce the pressure this subluxation places on the spinal cord. As a result of the change in head posture our rib cage may bend or shift to reduce pressure on the spinal nerves and similarly the big muscles of the lumbar spine and pelvis will compensate to further reduce the unwanted pressure on the spinal nerves. This for the body is a much better state than suffering the immediate and devastating effects of spinal cord and spinal nerve pressure. However, this leaves the pressure on the vertebral discs imbalanced and causes them to begin wearing out at a progressive rate.
When it comes to you and your families health, we never want to assume. We want to know and that’s why we feel everyone deserves to by having their nervous system evaluated complimentary.
The actual profession of chiropractic – as a distinct form of health care – dates back to 1895. However, treatment of the spine was still crude and misunderstood until Daniel David (D.D.) Palmer discovered the specific spinal adjustment. D.D. defined Chiropractic as, “The Philosophy, Art and Science of things natural. A system for adjusting the segments of the spinal column, by hand only, for the correction of the cause of Dis-ease.” He was also responsible for the earliest development of the philosophy of Chiropractic and provided the first definition for vertebral subluxation.
Chiropractic and its leaders have changed and evolved through the years but the principles of this distinct healing method are still the same as they were 100 years ago. Essentially, the body is a self-healing organism. The nervous system controls and coordinates every organ and tissue of the body. The relationship between the spine and the nerve system is a predictor for the state of health. Find the interference – correct it and the body will always move back toward health.
Can an Unhealthy Spine Affect Internal Organs?
At the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Henry Winsor conducted an experiment based on chiropractors claim that by adjusting the vertebrae they can relieve stomach troubles, ulcers, menstrual cramps, thyroid conditions, kidney disease, constipation, heart disease, lung and other diseases. In this experiment he dissected both human and animal cadavers to see if there was any relationship between any diseased internal organs discovered on autopsy and the vertebrae and nerves that went to the organs. Dr. Winsor dissected 75 human and 72 cat cadavers. He found nearly 100% correlation between minor curvatures of the vertebrae and diseases of the internal organs.
All 20 cases with heart and pericardium conditions had the upper five thoracic vertebrae misaligned (T1-T5).
All 26 cases of lung disease has spinal misalignments in the upper thoracic area.
All nine cases of stomach disease had spinal misalignment in the mid-thoracic (T5-T9) area.
All 13 cases of liver disease had misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All five cases with gallstone disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All three cases with pancreas disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All 11 cases with spleen disease had spinal misalignments in the mid-thoracic area (T5-T9).
All 17 cases with kidney disease were out of alignment in the lower thoracic area (T10-T12).
Prostate and Bladder Disease
All eight cases with prostate disease had the lumbar vertebrae misaligned.
Two cases with uterine conditions had the second lumbar misaligned.

Pregnancy and Chiropractic
Drs. Jared and Samantha Brown are certified in Webster’s Technique, which allows for proper bio-mechanics of the pelvis and sacrum, creating a birth process that is easy on mom and her baby. Dr. Larry Webster, the founder of the technique, reported that when a mother sought care and her baby was in a breech or transverse position, the restoration of pelvic neuro-biomechanics with this adjustment frequently facilitated optimal fetal positioning.
Chiropractic has the ability to release any interference between the nervous system and the rest of the body. When it comes to infertility, chiropractic can remove the cause of the issue and restore your body to its naturally functioning state.There are three stages in which you want to have an optimally working nervous system. They are:
Chiropractic care can help to promote more regular menstrual cycles and increase uterine function.
This will increase Mom’s balance, alignment and flexibility—three plus’s while carrying. In addition, patients who use chiropractic during pregnancy report less morning sickness, which is good for Mom, baby and Dad!
- Labor and Delivery
Mothers who receive chiropractic care throughout their whole pregnancy report less traumatic births and far easier and shorter deliveries. They also report well-time contractions, which help the baby move more easily through the birth canal.If you’re having trouble conceiving, or if you just want to make sure that you have the healthiest pregnancy and birth possible, contact us at 912.777.3717 to see how else we can help you through this most precious time in your life.
