From its late 19th century beginnings in a small city in Iowa, chiropractic care has evolved into a leading, international health care solution for the optimization of total body health through the nervous system.
The body is made up of a complex connectivity of nerves and muscles. In order for the nervous system to maintain its optimum level of healthy function, it requires activity and/or stimulation – the same way it requires oxygen and nutrients. Without it, the nerves cannot properly "talk" to the muscles, and interferences – called "subluxations" – to the connections occur.
Subluxations can affect overall health, energy and the immune system. Dr. Mara uses low-force, non-invasive chiropractic techniques to gently address these subluxations through adjustments that help relieve pain, improve the body's physical function, restore spinal health and open the door toward greater ongoing wellness. While chiropractic does not treat a specific condition, it works to normalize proper function, including biomechanics so the body can heal itself and subsequently perform at its best.
Chiropractic care is also a scientifically proven way to maintain and enhance the body's healthy nerve and muscle function for people of all ages and life situations, from pregnant women to kids to athletes. (In fact, studies have shown that after a chiropractic adjustment, muscle strength of athletes actually increased 21%.)
When brought into balance, the human body rewards us with vitality, strength and good health. Dr. Mara provides the gentle and creative chiropractic care that can bring this well being to the whole family.
