Our No-Crack Approach


We work with your whole body

The spine is more than just bones. The spine actually acts as an important path of communication, as messages between your brain and the nerves throughout your body all pass through your spinal column.

Your body is an integrated system

Your brain's job is to work with your spinal cord through the peripheral nervous system to ensure that everything works properly.  The brain, spinal cord, and the rest or your body are an integrated system: all systems depends on one another.

The trouble with cracking

Traditionally, chiropractic care tries to realign the spine by pushing vertebrae back into its proper position. This was done in an effort to make the central nervous system perform better.

However, forcing bones into different positions doesn't help your brain and nervous system's communicate or respond to stressors.

Why forceful adjustments don’t always work

Your spine is supported not by its bones, but by its muscles, ligaments, discs, and tendons. Since your body works as a whole, integrated system, forceful adjustments don't always work.

Your body knows what is best for you. And, consequently, knows best when and how to release tension, allowing the spine to realign itself. Forceful adjustments, when performed repeatedly at the wrong place and time can create microscopic tearing in the ligaments. This can lead to a more unstable spine. Through the "No Crack" approach administered at Spring into Life Chiropractic, your body is allowed to do what it knows is best for you. 


What the cracking sound is – and isn’t

The sound you hear when a chiropractor "cracks your back" does not necessarily mean that your back is re-aligned. The sound you hear is the sound the vertebrae makes when they separate quickly. The noise is similar to the sound a suction cup makes when you pull it off a window. It sounds like it's effective, but it doesn't always mean that the correct adjustment was made.

Have Dr. Travis introduce you to the "No Crack" approach and start your journey to whole wellness.

Technologies
  • Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measures the amount of stress on the brain and nervous system by showing the mount of autonomic reserve and resiliency held by the nervous system. This scan is one of the gold standard measurements for cardiovascular health.

  • A thermal scan measures temperature. Disturbances to the nervous systems, particularly along the spine, can cause changes to blood flow or inflammation which causes temperature differences from side to side on the back. This non-invasive scan shows the doctor the condition of your autonomic nervous system which controls all of your organs, glands and circulatory system.

  • Your nervous system controls your muscles with minute electrical impulses. When those impulses are blocked by subluxations, the overall function of your nervous system is disturbed. A Surface Electromyography scan measures those minute amounts of electrical energy along the spine to see where any blockages or disturbances occur. The doctor can use the Surface EMG as a diagnostic tool as well as to measure your progress throughout treatment.

  • COREscore™ is a measurement of how effective a patient’s brain and nervous system are functioning. This 100 point scale is like a health report card, combining information from Thermography, Surface EMG, and HRV. The higher the score, the higher functioning the patient’s nervous system. This helps the doctors to identify stress and measure progress throughout treatment.
