An old definition of chiropractic from the 1920’s states; “Chiropractic is the Art, Science and Philosophy of things natural. A system of adjusting the segments of the spine for the correction of the cause of dis-ease”. I had no knowledge of this when I began my formal chiropractic education. I was, however, drawn to the principles and philosophy of chiropractic early in my academic career.
Two of the philosophical tenants state that “There is a Universal Intelligence in all matter giving forth to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence”, and “All living things have an Innate (inborn) Intelligence”. Additionally we know that the nerve system is the Master Control system and controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body. Furthermore, the human body is self-healing and self-regulating. Therefore, any stress or interference to the nerve system will inhibit the body’s ability to heal, function and regulate as it was optimally designed.
The term chiropractors use to express nerve interference at the level of the spine is Vertebral Subluxation Complex, or just Subluxation for short. The components of subluxation include bones, muscles, nerves, soft tissues and any degenerative or pathological changes.
Let’s tie these concepts together; The job of Innate Intelligence is to keep you alive and functioning by controlling and regulating all parts of your body. Innate uses the nerve system to express itself through the body. Innate is always 100% present but not always 100% expressed due to the limitations of physical matter.
In Wellness Chiropractic, when chiropractors adjust the segments of the spine, we do so to decrease nerve interference and more fully express your Innate Intelligence. Wellness Chiropractic differs from orthopedic based chiropractic in philosophy and purpose. Instead of attempting to treat a specific symptom or disease state, Wellness Chiropractic sets forth the goal of bringing all parts of the body into optimum function. The most common side effect of improved function is people feel better and are better able to express their own Soul Purpose in Life.
Within the chiropractic profession, Wellness based chiropractors often refer to themselves as ChiropracTORS, and practice ChiropracTIC. This distinguishes the unique purpose and philosophy of Wellness Chiropractic.
At Market Place Chiropractic Wellness Center, we recognize that correcting nerve system stress is our primary responsibility. We do however acknowledge that there is more to Wellness than just adjusting the spine. Our Physical, Mental and Spiritual Well-Being is dependent on many factors. For that reason, we offer numerous wellness based services for our practice members.

Chiropractic for Kids
The Chiropractic care that we provide is an effective and affordable program that addresses children’s health conditions associated with the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Gentle, noninvasive and drug-free, chiropractic adjustments treat, resolve and prevent a wide range of health problems. Recent research by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) found spinal manipulative therapy safe and successful in treating children of all ages.
Chiropractic Care and Acute Conditions in Children
Acute conditions may result from birth trauma, sports mishaps and accidental injury. Chiropractic care benefits children by correcting the spinal alignment to improve their overall health. When vertebral joints are misaligned during birth or from a blow or fall, muscle tissue and nerves may also be affected. Spinal adjustment frees joints, restores motion and relieves nerve pressure, which may be the cause of additional ailments. Parents report successful treatment of children’s health issues such as acute earache, upper respiratory infection, muscle pain, neck pain and accident trauma.
Chiropractic Care and Chronic Conditions in Children
Chiropractic America reports that natural, drug-free chiropractic care is sometimes more effective than traditional medical approaches for chronic earache, scoliosis, and neck pain. Headaches and sleep disorders of nonspecific causes respond well to spinal adjustments, which affect and repair interrupted neural pathways. Asthma, allergy symptoms, and patterns of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may also be treatable with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic Care and Prevention of Ailments
Periodic ongoing adjustments at a young age may help stave off the above ailments before they begin. Proper spinal alignment now may delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition to maintaining children’s health, regular visits to our office will help instill the value of proactive health care in kids. They’ll be more likely to monitor and manage their health as they grow up and less likely to be afraid or in denial of any health problems. Encouraging good lifelong health habits is one of chiropractic’s best benefits for kids.

Simply stated, food is the essence of life. What we put into our bodies has the power to be life sustaining or life-depleting.
The human body is a self-healing and self-regulating machine. It miraculously extracts from food that which it needs and rids itself of the rest. Due to the business side of food and sustainability, many manufacturers have added chemicals, preservatives, additives, dyes, and other inert ingredients to enhance shelf life and profits. Unfortunately, these ingredients can be life-depleting over time.
For many people, food and diet are very problematic. Instead of being a source of nourishment, food has become an area of conflict and confusion- endless weight loss dramas, eating disorders, cravings, addictions, body image obsessions and never-ending searches for “the best” nutritional system.
It is our intention to support any and all patients with their nutritional needs. We would be honored to provide you with guidance when it comes to nutrition and overall lifestyle. This is why we would like to offer you the opportunity to schedule a Nutritional Consultation at our practice so that we can provide you with personalized recommendations and guidance.

Prenatal Chiropractic Care
At our office, we are highly trained in prenatal chiropractic care. This type of care is essential to consider, because during pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned, it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as C-sections.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits for women who are pregnant. Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
We are driven to help make our community the healthiest place to live in the country. If we are able to achieve this, then our children will grow up in a world where health and wellness is at the forefront of their decision making process, our neighbors will toss out their supposed “life-long” medications, and our entire culture will reap with vitality and utmost potential. On a regular basis we will host events, initiatives, lectures, teleseminars, and more including:
- Workshops about raising healthy families, proper nutrition, and a healthy nervous system
- Programs specializing in helping children with ADHD
- Teaching opportunities for schools and religious groups
- Exercise programs
- Walking Clubs
- Yoga classes
- Nutritional programs to transform the lives of those living with heart disease, diabetes, and hormonal imbalances
Health is a journey – not a destination – so we will keep you engaged and informed… JOIN THE COMMUNITY WELLNESS MOVEMENT!

What is the problem?
Escalating health care costs continue to remain an issue of great concern for many health professionals, employers and insurance companies. The latest statistics establish that 80% of illnesses and disease in Canada and the United States are preventable. This accounts for eight of the nine leading causes of death, of which there are more than 980,000 per year. Unfortunately, cardiovascular (heart) disease is still the biggest killer and makes up for more than 50% of this number. Yet heart disease is still one of the most preventable diseases in this country. Here are some of the latest statistics concerning health care.
- The US healthcare system is the most expensive of systems, outstripping by over half again the health care expenditures of any other country. (2)
- The average cost of health care per person in the United States approximated $3,925 in 1997. (3)
- Lifetime medical costs average approximately $225,000 per person. (1)
- Some 18 percent of lifetime costs for medical care–over $40,000–is estimated to be incurred in the last year of life. (1)
For many companies, medical costs can consume half of corporate profits — or more. Some employers look to cost sharing, cost shifting, managed care plans, risk rating, and cash-based rebates or incentives. But these methods merely shift costs. Only work site health promotion stands out as the long-term answer for keeping employees well in the first place.
What is the solution?

- hair loss
- heart disease
- obsessive-compulsive or anxiety disorder

MyCreatingWellnessSpace- This is your online wellness portal that can provide you with personalized fitness, nutritional, and mindset plans and advice, as well as a wealth of other information on how to get well and stay well.
Why Creating Wellness?
The reason we have become a Creating Wellness Center is that we recognize many of our patients are looking for help and guidance with their lifestyle choices and how to improve the quality of their lives. Chiropractic adjustments certainly play a huge role in that. When our doctors locate and correct subluxations and restore optimal nervous system function through chiropractic care, the health of our patients improves and so does their quality of life.
But what happens outside of our chiropractic office also needs to be addressed because it is the stress of daily life—physical, biochemical, and psychological stress—that causes subluxations and ill-health in the first place. So if we can help people minimize negative stress in these three dimensions then our patients will have a much better chance of reaching their health and wellness goals.
