The basis of chiropractic care is to restore proper function to the nervous system so the body can self regulate.
There are 3 things that can affect nervous system balance: chemical, physical and emotional stressors.
Chiropractic care allows the body to move toward a state of optimal health by restoring nervous system function without the use of drugs or medication.
Patients receiving chiropractic care have reported improvements in lower back pain, headaches, sciatica, Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD), neck pain,
auto accidents, arm hand or leg/foot pain, and etc.
COur sensory system begins developing in utero and continues after birth. There are reflexes that assist in childbirth that integrate during the birth process
and there are others that begin due to birth. All of these reflexes have something that activates or deactivates them. After birth the first year of life we integrate
so many of these reflexes through movements such as rolling, grasping objects, crawling, touch, sound, and visual stimuli. Babies need to practice each task
long enough before moving onto the next step.
When there is strain or injury to the body, whether due to trauma or daily stress, this fascia gets tight and dehydrated, essentially “glueing”
tissue together. These “restrictions” can cause tension, pain, and decreased movement and function. Scar tissue from a surgery or injury, or frozen shoulder
are examples of fascial restrictions.
Drs Riley and Sonda Powell have been serving the Tulsa area since 2004 under the name of Powell Chiropractic. In 2018 the doctors realized that their clinic name was no longer an accurate description of the types of patients they were seeing thus renaming the clinic to Optimal Health and Wellness. The clinic had evolved from neck pain, mid back pain, lower back pain, sciatic pain, headaches, numbness, tingling and auto accidents to also include caring for women who were pregnant, infants with colic, difficulties with breast feeding due to tongue ties, plageocephaly, children who have sensory processing disorder, autism, chronic health conditions effecting thyroid, hormone imbalances, leaky gut or IBS, and many many more. Optimal Health and Wellness is here to care for the whole patient because a chiropractor might adjust the spine but that adjustment effects the entire body.
