Chiropractic Care

You might be surprised to know that we have 24 bones that stack all along our spine. This makes up our spinal column, which dictates our nervous system. This important system controls so much that our body does every day.

“The nerves along the spinal column tell our bodies how they feel, how to function, and even tells our muscles how to move,” explains Dr. Kelly. “It also dictates hormone releases, which is very important for women’s health!”

Over time or when there is stress on the spine, a subluxation can occur, which means a tiny misalignment of the bone. While it may be small, a subluxation can cause a variety of painful symptoms and inflammation in the spine, and will create a distressed nervous system. To fix this and to relieve any symptoms, our team is able to find the misalignment and gently move the bone back so the nerve can function as it’s designed to do. “When there is a misalignment in the spine, communication is cut off from your nervous system,” explains Dr. Kelly. “By aligning the spine, one’s nervous system is able to restore healthy functionality.”

The chiropractors at GWC are trained in the latest and advanced techniques in the chiropractic field, which includes Diversified Technique, Thompson Technique, the Activator Technique, and most importantly the Webster Technique. We choose the technique best suited for the patients individual needs.

Below are some common questions and answers to help you prepare for your visit at GWC:

Q) Once I go to a chiropractor, will I always have to go?

You don’t have to do anything! However, we see going to the chiropractic similar to going to the dentist: You get your teeth checked every six months. We think you should get your spine every month and current research agrees with this, as nerve damage can begin if the subluxation isn’t removed. We recommend continual chiropractic care to maintain a healthy spine.
Q) Does the chiropractic adjustment hurt?

No! Some practice members might feel a little sore and tender following an adjustment depending on how long the subluxation has been present. However, a chiropractic adjustment is not typically painful. Regular chiropractic care will help you feel and function better!
Q) How much does chiropractic care cost?

$30. Every visit. Each time.
Q) Do I need a referral from a physician to see Dr. Kelly?

No. No referral needed. It’s simple to see the chiropractors at GWC.
Q) Will you suggest lifestyle tips or exercises I can do at home to support chiropractic care?

If necessary, absolutely. I have core exercises I recommend to our prenatal practice members as well as pelvic floor exercises because that tends to be neglected. I always offer ways that my practice members can expedite their healing at home.
Q) I have had back surgery. Can I come in for chiropractic care?

It depends on the kind of surgery. Please come in for a free consultation so our team can get a better understanding before determining if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic.
Q) Can chiropractic care help with stress management?

Absolutely! Chiropractic care encourages a healthy lifestyle and helps everyone function better. When a spine is properly aligned, good health radiates out. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to support a healthy nervous system without the use of drugs or surgery.

I’m so thankful that Dr. Kelly Barnette is our family’s Chiropractor! She is always caring and listens to my needs and concerns. She talks to my children and makes them feel comfortable during their adjustment. Taking time to explain what she is doing so they feel at ease. She also tends to each of us to our individual needs. I believe since we started being adjusted by her our overall health has greatly improved! I would recommend her to any person of any age! Angela P.
