HOW DO I KNOW IF CHIROPRACTIC IS RIGHT FOR ME?
We understand that trying to find solutions to our health challenges can be overwhelming at times. This is why we offer a COMPLIMENTARY 15-MINUTE CONSULTATION to discover how we can best help you.
WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT?
An adjustment is a process where I’ll use my hands to empower your system to integrate subluxations. Subluxations are unintegrated experiences that cause disconnections and interference to your nerve system. They affect your expression of optimal well-being physically, mentally and emotionally.
From the moment you were conceived your goal and intention as a human being was to grow and evolve. Every experience and event in your life is an opportunity for your system to adapt and grow.
It is the role of your nerve system to take these experiences (input) and integrate them into the matrix of your body at a subatomic and cellular level. If at any time your nerve system cannot fully integrate a certain event or experience, it will store this force (input) anywhere in your body as a subluxation. Therefore, subluxations are simply energy stored in your body changing the expression of who you are physically, mentally and emotionally.
The beauty of the subluxation is that the stored energy contains all the information from the original experience so you do not lose the opportunity to learn and evolve.
CAN I BRING MY CHILDREN WITH ME?
Yes! To have the opportunity to care for a child is such a special gift and one we don’t take lightly. Child chiropractic care is so important! This is one of Dr. Nathan’s specialties.
It was once believed that the health of your child could be determined by the presence or absence of symptoms. However, it is now recognized that this is not always the case and that the health and quality of life of your children is better determined by their ability to interpret, integrate and appropriately respond to environmental stimulus and experiences.
This master control system is the nerve system, responsible for repair, growth and the function of every cell, tissue and organ in the body. It is also responsible for sending out appropriate chemicals, hormones and neuropeptides responsible for emotions, higher thought, and new perspectives. If there are blockages or interferences, they can go undetected for many years and may manifest later as physical problems, emotional disturbances, poor sleep, anxiety or behavioral issues.
Chiropractic wellness care is about empowering your children in expressing their greatest gifts fully connected to their mind, body and spirit. It is never too soon to introduce your children to chiropractic wellness, and we would be honored to care for them.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR A NEWBORN TO GET ADJUSTED?
Newborn chiropractic adjustments are gentle, safe, and help your baby adapt to their new life. Even when there are few complications during labor, there is no denying that the birth process is a major event that may be challenging physically, chemically, and emotionally for your newborn. If your baby does not fully integrate the birth process it may store in their body as a subluxation.
One of the most dangerous and expensive misconceptions held by people today is that an absence of symptoms equates with being healthy. This is especially true in the case of subluxations, where interference patterns will dampen the nerve system predisposing your baby to symptoms, sickness or diseases that may manifest months or even years later.
Chiropractic wellness care is about being proactive, co-creating and manifesting the life of your dreams. The earlier one gets checked, the better they will fully experience life, physically, mentally and emotionally from a connected place of trust. By allowing their intelligence from within to be fully expressed they will be better prepared to face all the challenges that life has to offer. Similar to all experiences, integrating the birth process fully will ensure your newborn has the best start in life.
DO YOU ADJUST PREGNANT MOTHERS?
Yes! Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to be safe and beneficial for both fetus and mother. As a matter of fact, Dr. Nathan is Webster Certified and is the one of only a chiropractors in the northwest suburbs to have this special technique certification.
As pregnancy progresses mothers bodies will be changing immensely and it is vitally important they are completely integrating the entire experience. Pregnancy chiropractic care has been shown to help mothers get well, stay well and be their best – before, during, and after pregnancy.
A study by the American Medical Association found that women who received regular chiropractic care during their 3rd trimester, carried and delivered with more comfort. Another study concluded that with regular chiropractic adjustments mothers decreased the need for analgesics by half during their delivery. Chiropractic care has also been shown to be able to relieve intrauterine constraint and decrease the average amount of time spent in labor. We love working with pregnant mothers to help your body respond to pregnancy in the best way possible.
We have special pillows and tables to create ease for pregnant women to get adjusted throughout all stages of pregnancy. Getting adjusted can create better birth outcomes, easier, faster labors, and optimal positioning and nerve supply for baby as he/she grows and develops. Got pain? Chiropractic care can help prevent discomfort like sciatica and round ligament pain for mommies whose bodies are changing too.
HOW DOES INNATE LIFE APPROACH THE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT DIFFERENTLY?
You will be given specific adjustments tailored to your body depending on how you store potential energy. Bodies store energy in three different areas; the muscles, soft connective tissue (ligaments and tendons), and bones. The force required to transform potential energy into kinetic energy in the muscles and soft connective tissue is light, while there is slightly more force when the potential energy is stored in bones.
When the information from your life experiences begins to integrate you may experience changes in all areas of your life. You may notice increased energy levels, symptomatic relief, better sleep, greater clarity and meaning in your life, greater personal expression, better relations with others, and an overall improved quality of life. By getting adjusted you will be guided toward expressing your full life potential: A unity of mind, body, and spirit. In this way we may be freed, as nature intended, to pursue, experience and explore life to its fullest.
HOW MUCH DOES THE INITIAL VISIT COST?
The first step is a consult which is completely complimentary. If it is a good fit, you will recieve digital nerveous system screening, functional neurology exam, chiropractic exam, and your first adjustment if necessary. Upon completion, Dr. Nathan will use his clinical judgement to determine the most appropriate course of action for you. The investment for this visit is $125.
CAN I USE MY INSURANCE?
Absolutely. Innate Life Chiropractic is an Out-of-Network Provider with most insurance companies. This allows us to pass a savings to our patients and base our recommendations on the needs of the patients, not an insurance company’s algorithm. For patients who have an insurance plan that covers chiropractic care, we provide a “superbill” which has all of the diagnostic codes that your insurance needs to see in order to provide you reimbursement for the services we provide. This way if you a reimbursed the insurance company will send the check directly to you.
DO I NEED TO COME FOREVER?
Our care should only be utilized for as long as it is serving you to become a better, healthier, and more vibrant you. Typically, people do choose to stay with us for well-being care because they like the way they feel and function with chiropractic care. We understand that maintaining optimal communication and connection is essential for health throughout a lifetime.
IF I’M SICK SHOULD I RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
If you can get yourself to the office then please come in – this is a very important time to get adjusted. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to boost your immune system and help you get well sooner.
