Chiropractic and NetworkSpinal Care
What is chiropractic care?
It is a natural approach to health and wellness that aims to help everyone have an optimal expression of health and well-being, maximizing the human potential.
Chiropractic care focuses on the health and function of your spine and nervous system, the vital communication system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves), which regulates, organizes, and controls everything in your body.
Chiropractic care supports your natural ability to heal and adapt to life's stressors by adjusting vertebral subluxations, removing interference in your body's vital communication system. (learn more about vertebral subluxations in FAQ below)
NetworkSpinal™ Care, a gentle form of chiropractic care provided at Evolve Chiropractic, helps your body create unique strategies (3,4) to reorganize excess tension, self-correct, function and thrive at a higher level than before (5).
What can NetworkSpinal care do for me?
Your current state of health and well-being is a result of the way you've lived and how you've adapted to challenges and stress throughout your life. In response to physical, mental, emotional, and chemical stressors, your body and mind adapt enabling you to survive. You adapt by developing patterns of moving, thinking, and holding tension, etc.
When you are unable to adapt to the variety of stressors in a positive way, part of your system remains in a state of survival and defensiveness, decreasing your ability to grow, heal, and experience a full expression of life.
When your body is not adapting efficiently, it often produces pain to tell you something needs to change.
NetworkSpinal Care offers a different paradigm in health and wellness care. The unique strategies your body learns through care help to break free from old habits, get to the root causes of the dis-ease in your system, and create a life that is truly extraordinary (1,2)!
How well are you adapting?
At Evolve Chiropractic, we use INSiGHT™ scanning technologies to measure and track your nervous system’s adaptability.
With this state of the art equipment, we detect hidden patterns of damaging stress and track your changes throughout care. This helps us ensure your spine and nervous system are becoming healthier and your ability to adapt and respond to life is improving. So what scans do we perform?
Heart Rate Variability
Is your nervous system able to kick into fight or flight and quickly respond to challenges? Can it cool the jets and help you rest, digest, and heal when you need to? And how much fuel do you have in the tank to do what your body needs to do? Measuring your heart rate variability allows us to see how adaptable you are to stress and gain insight to the energy you have for change.
Thermal Spine Scan
The same nerves that control and regulate your organs, tissues, and glands also control the dilation of blood vessels along your spine. With spinal thermal scanning we can see how well your body is regulating temperature and gain insight to hidden stress that may be impacting your organ and gland function.
Your nervous system automatically controls every muscle along your spine to keep you upright and level with the horizon. With surface electromyography (EMG), we can see how well your nervous system is coordinating your postural muscle energy. This gives us insight into areas of physical stress, imbalances in muscle control, and where your muscles are working too hard or not enough.
With all three scans, your data is compared to a massive database of healthy, well adapted spines to create your CORESCORE, which is a combined neural efficiency index that we use to measure your progress in care.
Learn how we can help you improve your spine, mind, and life.
Your first visit begins with a complimentary consultation, discussing your health and wellness needs and goals, and making sure we are a good fit for each other.
If you decide our practice is the right fit for you, we can move right into a detailed evaluation of your spine, nervous system, and any concerns you may have.
Spinal Health Evaluations Include:
Digital Posture Analysis
Dual Scale Weight Distribution
Spinal Thermography (giving insight to spinal blood flow and autonomic nerve function)
Surface Electromyography of Postural Muscles (evaluating how your spinal muscles coordinate, revealing and imbalances in your spinal behavior)
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measuring your adaptability and energy reserve
Motion Palpation (evaluating spinal movement)
Manual Muscle Testing (assessing proper joint and nerve function)
Sensory and reflex testing
Referral for x-rays or advanced imaging
So we can focus on your needs and goals, please complete our new patient intake forms prior to your appointment.

Who should see a chiropractor?

Is Dr. Jason going to twist or pop my neck or back?
No. The form of care we provide does not involve the type of chiropractic adjustments many associate with twisting movements and the popping sound.
What is a vertebral subluxation and how does chiropractic care help?
A vertebral subluxation is defined by the Australian Spinal Research Foundation as "a diminished state of being, comprising of a state of reduced coherence, altered biomechanical function, altered neurological function and altered adaptability." (6)
