1 HOW TO ENJOY LIVING AGAIN Restoring Health and Vitality with the Alpine Cottage Chiropractic Whole Body Restoration Program AlpineCottage.org

2 How to Enjoy Living Again Restoring Health and Vitality with the Alpine Cottage Chiropractic Whole Body Restoration Program People often wonder what Chiropractic care actually is. There s nothing mysterious about chiropractic. It s a natural method of health care that focuses on treating the causes of physical problems, rather than just treating the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise. With a normally functioning spine and healthy nervous system, your body is better able to heal itself. That s because your spine is the lifeline of your nervous system. It controls feeling, movement, and all function through your body. At Alpine Cottage Chiropractic, Dr. John Whalen has pioneered a complete system for wellness for his clients. It is called the Alpine Cottage Chiropractic Whole Body Restoration Program. This system takes the very best that Chiropractic has to offer, and integrates nutritional therapy as well. In this way, the body is completely restored because the system not only corrects spinal problems, but addresses nutritional deficiencies at the same time. Patients who go through the Alpine Cottage Chiropractic Whole Body Restoration Program have seen their health and vitality complete restored. I ve been in pretty much constant pain over the last years and have avoided seeing chiropractors since one of them put me in worse pain a few years back. Over the last 30 years I have seen more than several dozen chiropractors, with only two or three of them really gifted at what they do. Recently, due to the increasing neck and back pain, increasing numbness in my fingers and being unable to sleep, I broke down and scheduled a visit with Dr. Whalen after hearing about how good he was. I really did not expect too much, pretty welcoming to accept that I d have to live my life through in pain. However, I did have a glimmer of hope after hearing about him. This was one of the best moves I ve ever made, and after just three visits, I ve returned to the gym several years after giving up my weight training and kickboxing forever, I thought. I m sleeping like a baby these nights and am feeling better than I have in over a decade. I m working out at full bore at the gym once again, even riding a horse for the first time in a decade last weekend, something that I would not have dreamed of doing again just a few weeks ago. All I can say is WOW! Dr. Whalen is truly the best chiropractor I ve come across in my entire 56 years, and I hope that you give yourself the opportunity to experience the healing that I m in the process of personally experiencing. Don t give up hope like I did, and fear not, for this chiropractor is from my perspective, one matchless, rare and gifted doctor; top shelf, indeed. Go for it and start living again! Warren C. Smith Director, UPN Medical Network

Additional Questions and Information About Chiropractic Care: How does chiropractic work? Chiropractic works by restoring your body s inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and remove interferences (subluxations, misaligned vertebrae) to your nervous system. With improved spinal function, there is improved nervous system function. The goal of the chiropractor is to remove interference that may be impairing normal health through specific chiropractic adjustments, allowing your body to heal itself. A healthy spine and a healthy lifestyle are your keys to optimal health! What type of education do chiropractic doctors receive? Doctors of Chiropractic are well educated. Chiropractic education and medical education are similar in many respects and different in others because chiropractors do not prescribe drugs or perform surgery, and medical doctors do not correct vertebral subluxations. After graduating with a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) Degree, each candidate passes the demanding four part National Board Examinations. Then, doctors apply to a governmental or professional licensing board and pass a still more difficult test before being granted the privilege to practice. A chiropractor s education, however, never ends. Most doctors complete regular postgraduate instruction for license renewal and to stay current on the latest research and adjustment techniques. What is a chiropractic adjustment? A chiropractic adjustment is the practice of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is subluxated, locked up, or not moving properly. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to eliminate interference to the nervous system, improving spinal function and overall health. Gentle spinal adjustments may boost your body s immunity, too. Do children need chiropractic care? Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for vertebral subluxation. Naturally, chiropractic adjusting procedures are adapted for the child s spine. Many childhood health complaints that are brushed off can be traced back to a misalignment of the spine. And health problems that emerge in adulthood may have been prevented by having the spine checked by a chiropractor as a child. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and are healthier than their peers. Are all patients adjusted the same way? No. The doctor evaluates each patient s unique spinal problem and develops an individual course of care. Each chiropractic adjustment builds on the one before. The resulting recommendations are based upon years of training and experience. Each patient s care is uniquely different from every other patient.

4 Is chiropractic safe? Chiropractic treatments have an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative and natural approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs, as evidenced by comparing malpractice rates between chiropractors and other health care professionals. Chiropractors malpractice premiums are a small fraction of those for medical doctors. Is chiropractic care expensive? Doctors of chiropractic provide effective, low-cost health care for a wide range of conditions. Scientific studies published by organizations not affiliated in any way with chiropractic institutions or associations continue to show the clinical effectiveness of chiropractic care for a wide variety of conditions. What causes the sound during an adjustment? Chiropractic adjustments do not always produce a sound. Often, however, adjustments produce a spinal release or popping sound. This is caused by gas rushing in to fill the partial vacuum created when the joints are slightly separated. This sound is painless and totally harmless. Can I adjust myself? No. Since a chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in a specific direction to a specific joint, it is virtually impossible to adjust oneself correctly and accurately. It is possible to turn or bend or twist in certain ways to create a popping sound that sometimes accompanies a chiropractic adjustment. Unfortunately, this type of joint manipulation is usually counterproductive, and can make an already unstable spine even more unstable. This can sometimes be dangerous; adjusting the spine is not for amateurs! Is chiropractic care addictive? No. If it was, there would be more healthy people around! It is possible to get used to feeling more balanced, less stressed, and more energetic as a result of regular chiropractic care. Chiropractic is not addictive, however, good health is. Can a person who had back surgery see a chiropractor? Yes. It s an unfortunate fact that up to half of those who had spinal surgery discover a return of their original symptoms months or years later. They then face the prospect of additional surgery. This too common occurrence is known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome. Chiropractic may help prevent repeated back surgeries. In fact, if chiropractic care is initially utilized back, surgery can often be avoided in the first place. Does chiropractic work for all types of health problems? No, however chiropractic care is successful with a very wide variety of health problems not necessarily considered back problems because of improved nerve system function. With a normal nerve supply, the body s natural healing capacity can improve a variety of health problems. Is it OK to see a chiropractor if I m pregnant? Anytime is a good time for a better functioning nerve system. Pregnant mothers find that chiropractic adjustments improve their pregnancy and make delivery easier for themselves and

5 their baby. Adjusting methods are always adapted to a patient s size, weight, age, and condition of health. What is the difference between a chiropractor and an osteopath? Chiropractors base their care on the detection correction, and prevention of vertebral subluxations (spinal misalignments). We use specific spinal adjustments to correct the spine, to improve nerve system functions and reduce nerve interference. Osteopaths use drugs, surgery, and other traditional medical therapies and only occasionally use manipulative procedures. Why do chiropractors take x-rays? Chiropractors take x-rays to reveal the internal structure and alignment of the spine. They are also concerned about underlying disease processes and disorders of the spine such as spinal deterioration, arthritis of the spine, abnormal development, bone spurs, disc disorders, tumors, and spinal curvature. X-rays also provide a blueprint for correcting the spine back to optimal health and alignment. Is a good work-out the same as getting adjusted? No. Exercise is an important part of good health, but without normal spinal function, a physical workout puts additional wear and tear on your improperly functioning spinal joints.
