Chiropractic is a science and philosophy of finding the underlying causes of health conditions and implementing techniques that allow the body to heal itself.
When a vertebrae becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position, this is referred to as a subluxation. Subluxations can be caused by many stressors we experience in life. When a vertebrae is subluxated, it begins to put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. The subluxation interrupts the natural flow of messages from the brain to the body.
As time goes by and a subluxation remains untreated, the spine and surrounding features such as discs can begin to degenerate. This degeneration becomes more difficult to reverse as time goes by. The surrounding muscles, nerves and bones begin to adjust to the new position. The body is an amazing machine. It will start to accommodate these changes by compensating in other areas. The longer this goes on, the more difficult it is and the longer it takes to correct.
Dr. Schulte is a wellness chiropractor. His goal is to help you feel better, get to the root cause of your subluxations and show you ways to stop recreating problems, so you can experience optimal health for a lifetime!
A specialist in correcting subluxation and other misalignments, Dr. Schulte can restore the misaligned vertebrae to their proper position in the spinal column. He may correct a subluxation using a variety of techniques which may include manual adjusting and/or gentle techniques. Some of the techniques Dr. Schulte employs are Diversified, Flexion-Distraction, drop table, and KST to correct subluxations. KST, or Koren Specific Technique, employs a gently pulsing instrument to adjust the spine. Many of the techniques we utilize are safe for use during pregnancy and with children. He also will adjust extremities such as ankles, wrists, shoulders and knees.
