Dr. Marco Bouchard primarily uses a specific chiropractic technique called Gonstead. Its principles are based on biomechanics and physics, ensuring a strong and stable foundation to each persons body. With this principle, any shift in this foundation, like a house, can cause major structural issues, presenting as aches, pains, and dysfunction.
Dr. Marco does a thorough assessment with every patient, taking a full complaint oriented history and looks for misalignments through physical exam and current X-Rays.
What is a subluxation?
A subluxation is when there is an imbalance and misalignment in your spine. This can cause uneven pressure on your discs causing it to swell (also called a slipped, herniated or ruptured disc.) This swelling can irritate nerves from its compression, which is where most of your mechanical symptoms would arise. Symptoms of a subluxation include: anything from irregular heart beats, numbness, tingling, headaches, digestive issues, low energy, and most aches and pains. The list is endless.
When Will I Feel Improvement?
Results drastically vary per person, each adjustment is working towards correcting any misalignment, and depending on how chronic the condition, and your state of health, can take days to years for long lasting improvement.
