What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body.

The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord and millions of nerves. While the skull protects the brain, the spinal cord is more vulnerable, only protected by 24 moving vertebrae.  When these vertebrae lose their normal motion or position, they can irritate the nervous system.  This disrupts the function of the tissues or organs that these nerves control.  This is called vertebral subluxation. 

Chiropractic care is the science of locating these areas of spinal malfunction and the art of correcting them to allow the body to heal itself. Many spinal problems seen in adults began in childhood.  Proper spinal hygiene is an important key to better health.

Here at Hermen Health we provide a large variety of natural and holistic ways to improve the health of your body. 

Allergy Testing- Bio-meridian Machine
Our state-of-the-art Bio-Meridian machine enables us to perform quick and painless testing of your own allergies and a customized nutritional supplmentation plan.  Thousands of allergens may be tested for over several sessions, if necessary.  The machine electronically tests various acupuncture points to see how the patient reacts to an allergen.  Reactions are recorded and graphed for analysis, assisting us in planning custom treatments. 

Allergy Treatment - Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET) — NAET is a technique that theorizes that most illnesses —from headaches to coughs to PMS — are caused by undiagnosed allergies.  After diagnosis with the Bio-Meridian machine, we may then use NAET to reduce or eradicate allergies that are undermining your health.  NAET is a non-invasive, drug free, alternative therapy intended as a treatment for allergies and chemical sensitivities.  Founded in 1983 by Devi Nambudripad, a California based acupuncturist, NAET draws on ideas from acupuncture, applied kinesiology, and allergy medicine. NAET is practiced by over 8,500 licensed medical practitioners all over the world.

Erchonia Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy— Cold laser beams are often described as “acupuncture with laser beams,” in that they penetrate the surface of the skin without heating or damaging the tissue.  The laser stimulates the body’s acupuncture points, bringing additional blood supply to various body parts.  Cold laser therapy regenerates tissue by increasing the cells ATP production.  ATP is sugar broken down to the cellular level and used by the cell as the cell’s “fuel”.  When you increase ATP production, you increase healing and decrease healing time naturally. 

Manual Diversified Chiropractic Adjustments
We offer manual adjustments using the force of the chiropractor’s hands, without the use of additional instruments, in a diversified technique.  The diversified approach addresses biomechanical failures occurring in areas of the spine, as related to partial dislocation. 

Electrical Stimulation
Electrical stimulation may be used to aid the patient in loosening and healing injured muscles by causing a muscle or group of muscles to contract.

Ultrasound
Ultrasound is a deep-tissue heating modality that has been used for several decades to treat musculo-skeletal injuries, soft tissue injuries, range-of-motion limitations, back injuries, and more.  It helps increase blood flow to a given area, relaxing muscle spasms and helping to speed healing.
