Network Chiropractic is a safe, gentle and effective approach for everyone regardless of age or health. Network Chiropractic taps into the body's innate healing capacity to optimize health and wellness.
By using gentle and specific light touches, given in a consistent sequence, the body will learn to release more complex tension, unwinding deeper tensions from the spine.
What makes this approach different?
Most people come into the office because they have become unbalanced. In todays culture of stress and input overload our bodies begin to work on overdrive. Our stress hormones are overabundantly released and what results is a body that is in a defense physiology or a "fight or flight" response. This defensiveness decreases our healing, decreases our breathing, negatively effects our communication and relationship with people, changes our posture and decreases our vitality.
Network Chiropractic, as practiced by Dr. Julie Orman, specifically teaches your brain and body how to develop better ways of releasing tension to establish greater balance. When there is less tension on your nerves, the efficiency of the brain's communication with the body improves, which allows for better healing. The result is a sense of ease, a groundedness, a clarity, a resiliancy and improved healing.
How Network Chiropractic works
Network Chiropractic is done with a surprisingly gentle touch to the spine. A person is, most often, relaxed in a face-down position. A very precise touch is applied with no more pressure than one would use when touching a closed eye. These light touches stimulate areas where your body is already at ease, causing the ease to spread.
The more ease that spreads throughout your body, the more your brain and body can decipher the sources of your problem and begin releasing the problem.
New and more efficient channels of communication are created between the brain and the body. Your brain begins learning how to more effectively release tension in the body. This release of tension allows ease to spread in the body, taking tension off the nerves. When there is less physical tension on the nerves, your body's natural healing mechanisms can fully kick into action, allowing much greater healing.
The spine houses the spinal cord, which is the central gathering point or "circuit breaker" between the brain and the body. The brain sends all of its messages to the body through the spinal cord and the nerves.
Your nerves go to every part of your body. They go to your muscles, your arteries, your heart, lungs, pancreas, etc. If the spinal cord or nerves going to these areas have physical pressure or tension on them, they cannot possibly work at 100%, and that causes diseases or symptoms.
Pressure on nerves from misaligned vertebra is known as a subluxation. Pressure on your spinal cord from surrounding soft tissue structures is known as adverse spinal cord tension. These types of pressures decrease the body's function, creating malfunction. Malfunction, left alone, develops into disease. Disease eventually creates a symptom.
It is important to eliminate the cause of the symptom, not just relieve them.
Why should I try this?
Most medicine is designed to cover or mask your symptom. This approach addresses correcting the cause of the body's dysfunction not just a mask of the symptoms.
If you cover the symptoms without correcting the cause, the problems often are not healed. Symptoms are the way that your body lets you know that something is not working properly and that there needs to be a change . Dr. Orman addresses the cause of the problem.
If you took your motor vehicle to a mechanic because your temperature warning light went on and your mechanic told you, "I'll fix that," and painted over the warning light, would you feel he was a reliable and trustworthy mechanic? No! You would want the cause of the problem corrected. Your body deserves to receive good treatment as much as your car does. (even better!)
"Network Care has a direct effect on client self reported wellness which is twice that expected from healthy lifestyle practices (exercise, risk avoidance, optimal food choices.)"
