A passion for travel and an instinct to help has driven Dr. Lona Cook to Haiti and the Dominican Republic for the second straight year.
Cook is a chiropractor. "A lot of times, people want to know: "Well, as chiropractors, what can you do?" Cook doesn't leave them unimpressed. On her second mission trip to Costa Rica, Cook met a wheelchair-bound man who, after one adjustment, came back the next day with a walker.

Well-meaning but misinformed friends, relatives and even health professionals often dissuade parents from placing their children under chiropractic care.
This often is based on the misperception that a chiropractic adjustment is "too rough," and that a young child's spine should not be "subjected" to it. In reality, a chiropractic adjustment has much in common with a handshake.

Established in 1895, the chiropractic profession has grown to become the third largest health profession in the United States.
Chiropractic comes from a Greek word that means "effective treatment by hand". Chiropractic, as a healing art, is based on the understanding that a normally functioning spine and nervous system is critical to good health. Research has consistently proven that chiropractic gets people better faster with less cost and longer-lasting results than traditional medical care for back and neck pain.

Patients respond positively to chiropractic adjustments to alleviate migraines and severe headaches. For patients that do not respond to medication and other common treatments, chiropractic care helps to address headaches and migraines at their source.
As reported from the Migraine Research Foundation, approximately 36 million Americans suffer from migraines with women of the ages of 25 to 55, the most likely candidates of the condition. Migraines, in general, start at one side of the head but can spread to both with the most significant pain around the sides of the forehead. Some individuals experience auras, or visual disturbances, along with or preceding the full onset of the migraine.

It has been documented in a variety of studies that general health and habit factors may perpetuate the presence of myofascial / soft-tissue patterns of pain.
These include nutritional, metabolic, endocrine and psychological influences; but often some of the worst offenders are contributors such as sustained postural demands and poor body mechanism. Thus one goal of chiropractic treatment has been to increase movement in the joints and relax the pain-producing contributory muscles.
Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis
September 14, 2017
Scoliosis is an intricate disease. Experts still don't know what causes 80% of scoliosis cases, and there is no cure. But there's still hope! There are proven methods to treat scoliosis and reduce its symptoms.
Traditional chiropractic treatment applies a general approach, similar to what the chiropractor would do for any other patient experiencing back problems. However, if the chiropractor is not practiced in scoliosis and familiar with its intricacies, traditional chiropractic treatment is unlikely to have much of an effect on the Cobb angle. This method is only recommended for patients over the age of 13 with very small Cobb angles of 20 degrees or less. Traditional treatment can be useful for relieving pain, but not for physically straightening the Cobb angle in scoliosis patients.
