After one visit I noticed a significant decrease in pain, whereas continued treatment has allowed me to continue working as a massage therapist. I personally recommend Dr. John Hood to anyone who is experiencing chronic lower back pain and sciatica. Thank you Dr. Hood!...

My best friend referred me to Dr. John Hood. Dr. Hood has helped me tremendously. The Micro Light Cold Laser has allowed me to regain full mobility in my right shoulder. My pain medication has been limited a great deal. Dr. Hood is a very special person with a great staff! Thank you Dr. Hood!...

After only 3 visits with Dr. John Hood at Chiropractic Care Center, I have a new outlook on life! I recently started Dr. Hood’s Decompression Traction System (similar to that of Vax-D). I now no longer have the stiffness in my neck and back. After a long day at work, I look forward to my decompression treatments and I am really enjoying being pain free!...




 

# Glossary

Adjustment:
The specific application of forces used to facilitate the body’s correction of nerve interference.

Chiropractic:

A primary health care profession in which professional responsibility and authority are focused on the anatomy of the spine and immediate articulation, and the condition of nerve interference. It is also a practice, which encompasses educating, advising about and addressing nerve interference.

Diagnosis:
A comprehensive process of evaluation of the spinal column and its immediate articulation to determine the presence of nerve interference and other conditions that may contraindicate chiropractic procedures.

Practice Objective:
The professional practice objective of chiropractic is to correct nerve interference in a safe, effective manner. The correction is not considered to be a specific cure for any particular symptom or disease. It is applicable to any patient who exhibits nerve interference regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms or disease.

Manipulation:

The forceful passive movement of a joint beyond its active limit of motion. It does not imply the use of precision, specificity or the correction of nerve interference. Therefore, it is not synonymous with chiropractic adjustment.

Paraspinal EMG Scanning:
A painless, non-invasive procedure to measure and record the electrical signals given off by the muscles that attach to the spinal column. Electrodes are placed on the skin and their readings are shown in the form of a graph. Since one of the symptoms of nerve interference is abnormal muscle activity, the EMG is becoming a popular method for charting muscle spasms and spinal imbalance.

Thermography:
This procedure measures the temperature on the skin surface to locate inflammation of muscles and soft tissues. A special camera takes pictures, which reflect the different temperatures by displaying a range of colors on film. Thermography has been used to pinpoint spinal nerve and muscle stress.

Vertebral Subluxation:
Also referred to as nerve interference, is a misalignment of one or more of the 24 vertebrae in the spinal column, which causes alteration of nerve function and interference to the transmission of mental impulses, resulting in a lessening of the body’s innate ability to express its maximum health potential.
