The Big Idea

Philosophy

By Dr. B.J. Palmer, Developer of Chiropractic

A slip on a snowy sidewalk, in winter, that is a small thing. It happens to million.

A fall from a ladder, in summer, is a small thing. It happens to millions.

A slip or fall produces a subluxation. The subluxation is a small thing

The subluxation produces pressure on the nerve. That pressure is a small thing

The pressure cuts off the flow of mental impulses. That decreased flowing is a small thing.

That decreased flowing produces a dis-eased body and brain. That is a BIG thing to that man.

Multiply that sick man by a thousand, and you control that physical and mental welfare of a city.

Multiply that man by a million, and you shape the physical and mental destiny of a State.

Multiply that man by one hundred and thirty million, and you can forecast and prophesy the physical and mental status of a nation.

So the slip or fall, the subluxation, pressure, flow of mental impulses, and dis-ease are big enough to control the thoughts and actions of a nation.

This man gives an adjustment. The adjustment is a small thing.

The adjustment replaces the subluxation. That is a small thing.

The adjusted subluxation releases the pressure upon the nerves. That is a small thing.

The released pressure, restores health to a man. That is a big thing to that man.

Multiply that well man by a thousand and you step up the physical and mental welfare of a city.

Multiply that well man by a million, and you increase the efficiency of a State.

Multiply that well man by one hundred and thirty million, and you have produced a healthy, wealthy, and better race for prosperity.

SO the adjustment of the subluxation, to release pressure upon nerves, to restore mental impulse flow, to restore health, is big enough to rebuild the thoughts and actions of the world.

The idea that knows the cause, that can correct the cause of dis-ease, is one of the BIGGEST ideas known.

Without it nations fall; with it nations rise.

The idea is the biggest one I know of.…

Chiropractic from the Heart

by Arno Burnier

Chiropractic has transformed my life and the lives of thousands I’ve served over the years.  Beyond enjoying better health, natural healing and vitality, Chiropractic has impacted me in countless others ways.

I have gained respect for my body.  I learned to honor, value, care and nurture it.

My understanding of symptoms has evolved from fearing them to listening and being guided by them. I now recognize symptoms as being part of the inborn language of the body to get my attention, guide me, to let me know that something is array or simply that I am adapting to changes in my environment.

Pain is no longer something I want to suppress and avoid; it has become an enzyme of growth and transformation to change patterns of behavior and life style.

My rapport with sickness and disease has evolved, from seeing these processes as being abnormal, to viewing them as part of a dynamic equilibrium called wellness, as well as an opportunity for growth and transformation.

I now see the birthing process as a natural body function that can be approached with trust, joy and even pleasure.

I rather tune to the inner T.V. and radio station G.O.D. than indulge in the mediocrity and fear propagation of the media.

I have found a deep spirituality in trusting Universal Intelligence and connecting with Innate within. I am guided from the inside out by my spirit.

I have witnessed the dying process as a beautiful, natural process of life that, when un-interfered with, is a gift for both the departing and those that remain. It needs not to remain behind closed door hidden from society.

I see health as my sole responsibility and number one priority.

I understand that outer ecology starts with inner ecology and view Chiropractic as the “Cousteau Society” of the internal environment.

I have a clear understanding of the distinction between fixing, curing, biological healing and core healing.

I know that healing is cellular replacement, which means the creation of new cells. Creation comes from life, which is light, which is spirit. A corpse cannot heal but a living being can.

I know the spine as being sacred. The conduit for Life Force, the subtle currents of prana and apana as well as the channel for Kundalini energy. The spine is the organ of enlightenment as the energy rises to blossom into a thousands lotus petals flower in the brain.

I know that the nerve system does not control the body and its function and that it is the Life Force flowing through the nerve system that do.

I recognize the belief system as being as real as any other bodily system as our thoughts, words and feelings are actual chemical reactions in every cell of our body.

I value the gift and sanctity of life.

Trust is my faith, Nature my temple, Life my religion and Love my sword.

I could go on and on. By all accounts the transformation from my mechanistic, medical, therapeutic, …

Why would I want to have a doctor of chiropractic for my company?

Study after study is showing the benefits of chiropractic care on all levels of one’s life. If your employees’ bodies are strong and healthy then their mind will follow by being sharp and alert. The result… a productive and positive team member

Research proves that people using chiropractic care are happier, healthier and more productive.

Study after study consistently shows that people who utilize chiropractic care either exclusively or in conjunction with medical care do not get sick and injured as often, return to work faster, take less dangerous medications and costs for care are less than traditional medical care alone. This translates into more productive employees, less sick days and as your health insurance claims decrease because your employees are healthier your company’s rates decrease because of decreased utilization.

What Techniques Does Dr. Brook Use?

In order to customize the right technique for each person I studied with several chiropractic masters. The list below is a brief explanation of the techniques I use to adjust and correct one’s subluxations.

If you have any questions about any of the techniques I use, feel free to contact me any time.

PALMER METHOD

This will involve any of a number of specific adjusting techniques, such as full spine, gonstead, & HIO, with the addition of a philosophy which emphasizes  the role of the Innate Intelligence of the body in the healing process.  It will not utilize any therapy other than hand adjustment.

THOMPSON

A specific technique for adjustment of the full spine on a special table which has a slight drop in the cushions to improve the effectiveness of the adjustment without as much force into the patient.

GONSTEAD

A specific method for full spine adjusting utilizing the use of full spine x-rays to locate spinal mis-alignments.

H.I.O. — Hole In One AKA Toggle Recoil

A specific adjustment of the upper cervical spine… the upper part of the neck, closest to the brain.This technique utilizes a side posture table with a cervical head piece which makes a slight drop when the adjustment is given.

MLS

Developed by my mentor Dr. Arno Burnier. It is an advanced technique that involves visualization, motion palpation, and advanced delicate adjusting.

MOTION ANALYSIS (PALPATION)

An examination procedure used to test the mobility of spinal joints by feeling for movement between the vertebra.

ACTIVATOR

It is a small had held impact tool in which a quick impulse is applied to correct a vertebral mis-alignment according to a set pattern.

LOGAN

A non-force technique taught by Logan Chiropractic College, which utilizes a soft steady pressure on ligaments around the tail bone for release of tension and vertebral mis-alignments in the lower back.…

How it Works – Your First Visit

The purpose of the first visit is to gather information about your past and current health status.  After a brief tour of our office, you will sit with Dr. Jeremy Brook in consultation, to determine how we can best assist you.

Should chiropractic care be an option for you, you can choose to have a comprehensive chiropractic analysis performed.  This will include a full spectrum evaluation consisting of motion spinal palpation, computerized sEMG examination, infra-red thermography, and range of motion studies . Assessment of your spine follows to reveal exactly how your body’s performance is being compromised by vertebral subluxation- a misaligned spinal bone that interferes with the transmission of vital nerve signals.

That afternoon or evening, Dr. Brook will review your findings, then analyze them in detail to determine two things:  1) any unusual findings, which when present, may alter our Recommended Program of Care or facilitate possible follow up by another health care professional and 2) highlight any precautions necessary for you to receive chiropractic care.

Once we have done so, we will integrate these findings with the results of your chiropractic analysis and design a personalized game plan. This visit has two primary purposes:  1.  Discuss the findings of your chiropractic analysis and once fully understood 2.  Discuss your Program of Care and associated financial responsibilities.

It is recommended you bring any family members, significant others and friends that are involved in your life and your decisions.  There is no charge for this follow-up consultation.  Plan on spending 60 minutes at our office.

Should chiropractic care be appropriate for you, you can choose to begin care on this visit.  You will be taken to our comfortable adjusting suite where you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment; the first step towards regaining and maintaining your health.…
