CONDITIONS WE TREAT
BCST is excellent for help with regulating the nervous system. Learning how to monitor your physical response to stress is the first step in self-regulation and is one of the key features of BCST.
All the body systems have to communicate in an integrated and holistic way. BCST helps promote communication between the nervous system and the endocrine system thereby supporting the optimal function of the endocrine system.
Effects of overwhelming experiences can be held in the body and nervous system and when left unresolved can continue to be triggered in stressful situations. BCST is a gentle way to start unraveling trauma affects and gain more control and regulation in stressful situations.
Digestive disorders in children and adults:
poor digestion can be the first sign of stress/anxiety and leads to many more serious issues. BCST can help calm the nervous system and help you develop mindfulness about dietary influences on digestion.

Chiropractic for Children, Infant Colic
Infants and children are also subject to stress and strain, from the birth process on through growth and development.

The posture of the spine depends of the proper balance of the muscles on either side of the spine. If the muscles are weak or too tight, they can distort the spine causing slouching or discomfort when trying to straighten the spine. A chiropractor can determine the source of the posture problem and adjust the spine to improve the muscular balance. Svastha Yoga therapy is a powerful form of yoga that can change longstanding postural problems.
Musculoskeletal Pain, Numbness, Leg Pain, Sciatica
The most common cause of leg pain or sciatica is a nerve irritation the starts at the level of the spine. The muscles attached to the spine become tight and short, compressing the sciatic nerve. Chiropractors can assess the source of the nerve irritation and make the correct adjustment to relieve the pain.
Headaches, Neck Pain
Headaches are commonly caused by muscle tension in the upper back and neck. As the muscles get tight and short they can cause misalignments of the vertebra which can compress the nerves and inhibit proper circulation to the muscles. Chiropractic adjustments can restore normal alignment of the vertebra, relieving pressure on the nerves and restoring proper blood flow.
TMJ Disease (Temporal Mandibular Joint Disease)
This common problem is getting more and more widespread due to our stressful lifestyles. Anxiety and stress can result in teeth grinding or bruxism, which leads to muscles of the jaw, neck and upper back becoming tight and painful. It is very helpful to get the neck adjusted to relieve a lot of the tension. Craniosacral Therapy is also quite effective in resolving underlying stress that causes TMJD. We work with a multi faceted approach for this complex condition.
Sleep Disorders, Insomnia
Our stressful lifestyles are causing an increase of a variety of sleep disorders. Craniosacral Therapy helps to gently balance the nervous system, promote self awareness, and thereby help restore normal sleep cycles.
