MILLEDGEVILLE — Subluxation or misalignment of the spine occurs when one or more of the bones displace. A certified chiropractor can properly reconnect the spine to energize the nervous system and the body’s natural healing power.
After practicing solely at Lake Oconee, Pure Chiropractic opened an additional Milledgeville location on Log Cabin Road in June 2012.
Founder and owner Dr. Ted Smith isn’t a pain reliever chiropractor.
“I don’t want to ever talk about symptoms,” Smith said. “I want to talk about function.”
The best way to describe the chiropractic lifestyle is an inside out approach to wellness.
“Most people are looking for something different,” Smith said. “People are starting to understand that drugs aren’t working. There is a time and a place for it, but it should be your last resort not your first.”
Director of Operations Hannah R. Goss said maintaining a healthy spine and nervous systems is vital for kids and adults.
“The adjustment only takes a few minutes, but it’s what happens once your brain is reconnected with your body that’s so powerful. The healing continues for hours after a person leaves that table,” Goss said.
Overcoming misconceptions through education is a daily routine. People generally don’t know what a chiropractor does.
“Most people don’t truly understand what chiropractic is even if they’ve been adjusted,” Goss said. “A chiropractor removes the nerve interference, so the body can do what it was made to do.”
Chiropractors aren’t just back or neck doctors.
Goss said usually by the time the back pain comes there are other related health issues involved.
The brain and spinal link forms seven hours after conception. All other body parts follow suit.
Pure Chiropractic believes medicine seeks to treat the part, while chiropractic looks at the power source. The practice ensures the link from the brain to body part or organ is 100 percent connected.
