We believe that no two people are alike, and that healthcare shouldn't be approached as if they are.

 

A Cookie-Cutter Approach Just Doesn't Work

The human body is amazing. It is capable of doing far more than we could ever imagine. We're still learning more about all of the functions and facets of our healing. With such a complex system, it's any wonder why taking a "one-size-fits-all" approach to health often doesn't work. Your body is beautifully unique. You're not the exact same as your brother, or your mom, or your child. Your health needs to be considered for how YOU alone were designed. 

This is why we incorporate so many services in our office - we want to have the best chance of helping you, as a unique individual, get the best healing possible. 

Here is a list of services we offer at Hope Chiropractic & Wellness Center. You can also scroll down to read more about each service and how it can help you to find your missing piece for your health.

You Have an Inborn Ability to Heal

Our number one goal at Hope Chiropractic & Wellness Center is to treat the CAUSE of poor healing not just a person’s symptoms. We understand that the body uses symptoms to alert us of areas where our health is hindered, and that simply treating symptoms may never fix the underlying problem. Because of the intricate relationship between your spine and nervous system (which controls every cell in your body) chiropractic care plays a VITAL role in supporting the underlying problems so that our bodies can truly heal. 

 

Does Your Healing Feel Like It's "Switched-Off?"

Think about having a cotton ball in your ear. Your ability to hear anything greatly decreases and words are muddled which can make communicating confusing. This is exactly how your nervous system works. If the nervous system has interference in it's communication there is no way it can function at it's highest level. The nervous system is the master system and one of it's biggest jobs is healing! Imagine how much harder it would be for the nervous system and your healing processes to operate efficiently if your body isn't communicating effectively. 

 

What Causes This?

Problems in the spine can be caused by a number of things, and they aren't all traumatic:

POSTURE-e1472758657375.png
  • Chronic stress and anxiety
  • Poor posture
  • Excessive time spent in a seated position
  • Slips and falls
  • Auto accidents
  • Chronic muscle spasms
  • Poor nutrition
 

Are You Ready To Switch-On Your Healing?

The beauty of the human body is that it is incredibly resilient and has an inborn ability to heal. Most of the time it needs no help, but it also needs to be clear of interferences. Poor spinal health can interfere with your ability to heal by muddling the communication between the brain and the body. Recovering your spinal health can help restore that communication and, in turn, switch-on your healing.

Many patients report much more than just pain relief while under our care. They may notice their allergies clearing up, their reflux symptoms improving, their constipation lessening, or their sleep and mood improving. Even though we are not treating those conditions, as we focus our healing efforts on the spine, the body does its amazing work of bringing things back into balance. 

YOU have an INBORN ability to HEAL. 

 

How We Approach Care

Our approach to chiropractic care is centered on correcting the underlying problems and fostering healing. We also recognize that every person is unique and different in their rate of healing. Because of this we base our care recommendations on two key things:  how YOU feel you are progressing, and how we see your spinal health improving. With these two factors we are able to assess your progress on each and every visit, and are able to adapt our timeline accordingly. In this way our care recommendations are entirely individualized and allow your body's unique rate of healing to guide your care. 

 

Who Can Benefit From Chiropractic?

Problems in the spine can arise at any age, and can be addressed by chiropractic care. We see patients of all ages and have doctors specialized for each stage of care.

Why We Test

If you've ever decided to "get healthy" or "do the right things" for your health - cutting down on carbs, eliminating gluten and dairy, taking probiotics, exercising - only to end up worse-off in three months than you were before you started, you're not alone. 

Getting healthy can be challenging, especially when you don't really know what you should be doing. 

This is one of the many reasons why we firmly believe in functional testing. If we know exactly how your unique body is functioning - how it is processing nutrients, how it is handling inflammation - we can more effectively support your body's healing processes, and help you meet your goals. 

Another powerful reason why we test is that it helps us get to the root cause of poor health. Functional testing takes a deeper look than traditional labs as to what is going on beneath the surface. It allows us to find the missing puzzle pieces for your health so that you can get back on track again. Sometimes the missing piece is a poor gut health, sometimes it is rapid-fire inflammation, other times it is hormone imbalances. All of these things are key when you are trying to improve your health. 

 

Here is a short video on the power of Functional Testing:

Here is a list of our most advanced functional tests:

Nutrigenomic Testing

Nutrigenomic testing is the study of how our genes impact our nutrition, and how our nutrition impacts our genes. It is simply the most detailed look at how you are designed as a unique individual, and how your body handles things like inflammation, immune system function, detoxification, energy production, mood & behavior, and more. 

Consider your body as a vehicle. Are you running on a fourth-tank of gas? Are your brakes not functioning? Do you have the gas-pedal stuck down and are running on overdrive? Or is your oil boggy and in desperate need of a change? The design and condition of your vehicle and how you take care of it GREATLY impact how long and how well your vehicle will function throughout its lifetime. 

In your body, your gas and brake pedals represent how aggressively you process inflammation (illness, injury, allergic reactions). The oil system represents how well your body is clearing-out toxins and debris. And the gasoline? That represents how well you are fueling all of the cells in your body. 

If you've been struggling with chronic health challenges and feel like you've had every test under the sun run on yourself - but are still struggling - nutrigenomic testing will help you tie it all together, finally. 


MicroNutrient Testing

MicroNutrient testing is a powerful compliment test to any of our advanced testing. It measures your body's levels of key nutrients - vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and more - by looking at the cellular intake of these nutrients rather than measuring what is in your bloodstream. Traditional vitamin & mineral tests can be misleading, as measuring what is in the blood can change at any given time. What is more beneficial is to look at why has actually gotten into your cells. 

From this test we are able to determine key things:

  • If you have a gut-health problem that is hindering your absorption of nutrients
  • How well you are processing sugars and whether you are sensitive to them
  • How your immune system is functioning
  • How your antioxidants are functioning
  • Which specific nutrients you need to supplement yourself with (and which you do not)

Food Allergy Testing

Our advanced food allergy testing incorporates a full-spectrum look at the foods your body is reacting to. We combine IgG and IgA markers, whereas most traditional tests only look at IgG reactions. The trouble with only looking at one type of reaction is that it can leave-out vital information in the understanding of what is hindering your gut health. Many patients will have an IgA reaction to a food group but not an IgG, and vice versa. It is crucial to look at both when trying to heal the gut. 


DNA Stool Testing

DNA stool testing is an incredibly advanced look at overall gut health. It tells us three key things:  1) what pathogens (viruses, bacteria, parasites) are present in the gut that may be hindering you health  2) the amount of beneficial bacteria present  2) the extent of damage & inflammation in the tissues of the gut. This testing is more advanced than traditional stool culture testing. It is much more effective in recognizing a host of pathogens.

We utilize this testing for people suffering from chronic gut-related conditions, poor immune function, and for children with sepctrum-type disorders, because there is a strong link between gut health and each of these conditions. 


Heavy Metal Testing

Our environment is incredibly toxic. From amalgam fillings to lead paints, chemicals, pollutants, and junk in our foods, it is common for our bodies to become burdened with toxins. The tricky thing about heavy metal toxins is that they can be stored in our body's tissues making it hard to recognize their presence and impact on our health. 

If you are worried that heavy metals may be hindering your healing, we can help you find out. We offer multiple methods for assessing heavy metal toxins in the body - hair analysis, urine testing, saliva, blood, and stool tests - and we can help you pick the right testing for your body. 


Hormone Testing

We offer functional hormone testing in our office. Rather than checking minimal hormones in a single point in time, we prefer to look at detailed trends with hormones and gain insight into the deeper things affecting them. For example, most traditional thyroid tests look only at one or two hormones in the bloodstream. The problem with that is that unless you are in full-blown hypothyroidism, you may not see the problems developing beneath the surface. 

Our approach is to look at full hormone pathways and to utilize saliva hormone testing, blood work, and/or temperature studies so we can pick-up on what your body is actually doing with these hormones. Sometimes we tie-in other advanced testing as well so we can see even deeper into why your hormones are "off." 


CardioMetabolic Testing

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in America. Standard cholesterol tests can miss that you are at risk. Our CardioMetabolic test offers a clinically relevant evaluation to help define risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, progression toward Type 2 Diabetes, and inflammation. It includes SpectraCell’s Advanced Lipoprotein Particle Profile™ Plus, which measures lipoprotein size and density; cardiovascular risk stratification; and also includes triglycerides and traditional cholesterol screening.


We also offer Standard lab testing as needed. 

Our goal is to approach each person as a unique individual, and to pick the absolute best testing for them so that we can gain the most amount of insight with the least amount of testing.
