The bones of the spine, or the vertebra, can get out of alignment, putting pressure on your nerves, causing pain and reducing your range of motion. Pressure on nerves also decreases their function and can change the way they transmit chemical and electric messages between your brain and organs. This affects your state of well being and overall health.
Dr. Giles uses chiropractic adjustments to gently realign the vertebra and restore function to the nervous system. Regular adjustments keep your spine healthy and your nervous system functioning. Dr. Giles also recommends exercises and stretches to keep the fascia and muscles strong and to release the pressure placed on certain bones.
People of all ages can benefit from chiropractic care. Dr. Giles treats children and adults of all ages to promote health and well being at each stage of life.

AUTO INJURY CARE
Following an auto accident, you may be wondering if you need a lawyer, whose insurance company you should call, and how you should address injuries.
It's best to make sure your injuries are taken care of as quickly as possible. Many people who are injured feel fine after the accident until the next day when the pain creeps in. It's best to get an appointment scheduled the same day or day after the accident if possible. At Formation, we can help you find the attorney that fits your needs. Many times, your chiropractic care and attorney come at no out of pocket expense to you. Get the care your body needs and the legal guidance you need.
Most people, at top speed, can only run 8-10 miles per hour. This means that your body was only built to withstand impact at these speeds. A collision at a higher speed creates far more damage than the body was built to withstand. People experience concussions, whiplash, poor movement, herniated discs and pain throughout the back and body, which can lead to disk degeneration, arthritis and other conditions.
Seeing a chiropractor should be one of the first things you do after a car accident. At Formation Chiropractic, we are trained to find the damage in your body that you may not be aware of and that other healthcare professionals may not be looking for. If a car accident injury is not addressed, it can lead to greater problems down the road. Neurological damage may be under the surface. Seatbelts can damage shoulders, and dashboards can damage knees. You may feel pain and stiffness after an accident, but since most nerves don’t feel pain, you may have a lot of other problems hiding beneath the surface undetected.
When you see Dr. Giles after an auto accident, he will give a thorough examination, looking for neurological deficits, changes in normal body motion, pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, malfunctioning nerves and organ problems. Then he will build a care plan that is designed to get you back to health so that you can enjoy your life both in the short term and in the long term.
