Dr. Marco Bouchard has studied multiple chiropractic techniques that enable him to be able to handle a wide range of problems. He primarily uses a specific chiropractic technique called Gonstead and combines this with Clear Institute spinal correction protocols. Its principles are based on biomechanics and physics. Furthermore, he utilizes extremity adjusting protocols for problems in the wrist, ankles, knees, elbow etc. Dr. Marco enjoys treating newborns all the way up to people in their 90’s. All new patients first have a consultation, then a physical exam to determine the cause of the problem and finally can order imaging like XRays if necessary. Once all the information is compiled, then he will explain the cause of the problem along with treatment options.
A subluxation is when there is an imbalance and misalignment in your spine and this can cause uneven pressure on your discs. Over time, it can result in swelling and this can irritate nerves which can lead to the problems you are experiencing. Symptoms of a subluxation can range from no pains/no symptoms to back pain, sciatica, headaches, digestive issues,, low energy, and most aches and pains. It must be noted that the list of problems is endless because nerves travel everywhere in your body.
Results drastically vary for each person since your age, level of fitness, mental stress, repetitive stress, what you eat and many more variables all play a large role in your ability to heal. However, each adjustment is working towards correcting misalignments in your spine and optimizing your overall health to provide you a happier life more fulfilling life!.
