For a lot of people, going to the chiropractor is about getting re-aligned, sometimes by force. Getting one’s “back cracked”, some say, jokingly. But there are a multitude of techniques that chiropractors can practice to focus on a patient’s overall health, many of which focus on gentle approaches. Network Chiropractic, or Network Spinal Analysis, is one of these gentle methods, and we integrate it here at Chiropractic Family Wellness Center in Scarborough, Maine.

Network chiropractic is a method of chiropractic care that focuses on connecting with the nervous system in order to free the spinal tension that causes misalignment. It focuses on the tension that is being caused by a malfunctioning nervous system. The tension is most often caused by a bigger issue, and Network chiropractic works to cure the body of this issue, not just mask pain.

Those who practice the Network Chiropractic technique believe that nerve interference is what causes many of the health problems we experience today. The body’s nervous system sends signals from your brain to all the different parts of the body, including pain signals from the spine back to the brain, which has a major effect on how we experience pain.

Since the nervous system turns mental and physical stress into tension, which is usually stored in the spine, this tension eventually causes subluxations, or misalignments in the spine. The more stress in a person’s life, the more subluxations will happen in the spinal area. If the tension is not resolved at a deeper level, the pain continues.

Network chiropractic takes chiropractic care deeper than traditional chiropractic. In addition to dealing with the subluxations on a physical level, they are treated on a mental level. Network chiropractic allows the nervous system to better communicate with the body, expelling any negative interference causing the pain.

Network chiropractic uses gentle touches on particular parts of the body, allowing your brain to make a connection with that spot. After a while, the brain begins to connect with those areas with a sense of peace, overcoming the tension. This eventually becomes an automatic response when the body and/or brain experiences stress. 

Network Chiropractic helps you build the communication channels between your brain and spine. Much research has been done and studies show that regular Network Chiropractic care can give you:
