Biomechanical/Neurological Stressors, Nutritional deficiency and Chronic degenerative changes have become common in our modern world. Our lifestyles and diet no longer resemble what our genetic coding was designed to utilize, (See Epigenetics). The modern stress lifestyle, with the nutritional deficiencies, refined foods, chemical stressors, and biomechanical/postural stressors, contribute significantly to the degenerative changes in our lives. Your body is either headed down the common degeneration path, or you are supporting your body's innate capability at orderly and vital regeneration. Version one leads to drugs, surgery and an early death. Version two leads to your matured "youthification" experience of "aging" with vitality and renewal.
Our techniques of utilizing traditional Chiropractic care with multiple modern tools of Chiropractic and Functional Neurology combined with Nutritional Analysis provide valuable support towards activating and sustaining your healthful life.
If you have any questions about our brand of chiropractic care, or would like to learn more about chiropractic, functional chiropractic neurology, or nutritional therapies, please contact us at Durham Chiropractic Center. Please call us at (919) 401-5061 today!
