Day 1: Initial Discovery
Office Tour, In-Depth History, and Neurological Scans
Please fill out the appropriate paperwork for your new patient appointment. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!
During your first appointment, the doctor will be taking an in-depth history to find out what your major stressors – physical, chemical and emotional – have been. Due to the fact that your nervous system is the stress adaptation system of our body, we are looking to see how that system could have been overwhelmed and cause the challenges you’re currently experiencing. This is also the time we will discuss your goals for you and your family’s care. Dr. Sarah and Dr. David want to make sure their goals align with yours so you can be on the same path moving forward.
At Pure Light Family Chiropractic, we utilize an advanced chiropractic technology that scans your spine and delivers a computerized image of the stress and tension to your nervous system. Two different technologies give us an objective assessment.
HRV is quickly becoming the gold standard for measuring cardiovascular health. This technology is a global measure of how stressed the brain and nervous system are. It indicates the amount of autonomic reserve and resiliency the nervous system contains to deal with the abundant amount of stressors in today’s society.
This measures temperature. When there are disturbances to your nervous system along the spine, there are often temperature differences from side to side due to inflammation and changes in blood flow. A thermal scan is non-invasive and reveals the condition of your autonomic nervous system controlling your organs, glands and circulatory system.
Day 2: Empowerment Session
Report of Findings, Care Recommendations, & First Adjustment
During your empowerment session, the doctor will go through your neurological scan results and your recommendations for care. Dr. David and Dr. Sarah pride themselves on their care recommendations to help you and your family experience the results and reach the health goals you are striving to achieve.
When working with overwhelmed and stressed nervous systems, we take an overall approach of "less is more" in which we look to calm the nervous system versus overstimulate it further. We take this approach in nearly all of our cases and truly see better results when the body is aided to help regulate and relax.
We base our adjustments on our neurological scan results. Therefore, this allows us to be very specific in the course of care and approach to make sure we are getting to the root cause of the neurological stress. Then we can begin to remove the interference, allowing the body to function optimally.
During your first adjustment, the doctor will explain everything as they go, making sure to answer questions so everyone can feel comfortable. From infants to pregnant mamas and all the kiddos in between, we take a personalized approach to achieve each person’s health goals.
Adjusting Little Ones
Infant's and children’s adjustments look and sound much different than adult adjustments. Often times, the parents hardly notice when the adjustment has taken place on their little ones. Should you have any further questions about adjustments for yourself or your little ones, please feel free to contact us!
