Chiropractic is a form of healthcare that uses the body’s own natural abilities to heal from the inside out. Many people assume Chiropractors are primarily bone doctors, however it is more than that; we are nervous system doctors. The nervous system is known as the master system of the body controlling every cell, organ, muscle and tissue. When there is interference within the spinal column it will cause dysfunction to the nerve, we call this subluxation. Studies show that the weight of a dime is able to decrease the function of a nerve by 60%; this is only 8-10mmHG of pressure. So the smallest amount of pressure on a nerve will create a significant amount of dysfunction.
Chiropractors use a specific Chiropractic adjustment to remove this pressure on a nerve and put the bone back in alignment. This allows for the body to heal and function properly the way it was created to. Chiropractic care is used for a number of various dysfunctions within the body while improving posture and alignment. Many times these dysfunctions are aches and pains but where Chiropractic thrives is preventing those aches and pains. Most importantly, this allows the body to function and work at its optimal ability helping individuals reach their maximum potential.
The Chiropractic adjustment is a specific impulse applied to the spine in order to correct the position of a vertebra that is subluxated. There are many different techniques that can be used to make the proper corrective adjustment. Dr. Wishmyer has training and experience in Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson, Extremity, Upper Cervical, and Activator.

Rehabilitative Exercise is an important aspect of care as it can help facilitate the healing process and allow the Chiropractic adjustment to maintain and ultimately correct. Dr. Wishmyer will spend time walking each patient through specific rehabilitative exercises that he or she can do at home to assist the adjustment and aide in the corrective process.
Neuromuscular re-education is a very important aspect of care that not every patient needs or receives. The goal of this technique is to retrain the body on how it is designed to function properly. Neuromuscular re-education taps into the nervous system and helps correct faulty movement patterns and positioning of the body in space. There are many different tools and techniques used to achieve this at WISH ChiroSport.
