Chiropractic is the art and science of detecting and correcting joint misalignments and restoring the associated nervous system back to its normal, optmal functioning.
This is done through the specific chiropractic adjustment. The Doctor of Chiropractic uses his/her hands and/or specifically designed instruments to restore normal joint movement and alignment with a high speed/low force thrust.
Thankfully most adjustment do not hurt and frequently they feel good as the pressure from the joint is released. Dr. Gunther uses safe, gentle, and effective chiropractic techniques.
We call ourselves 'Active Life' for two reasons:
First, it is our desire to keep our patients in the very best of health that allows them to truly live an active life. It is important to us to have our patients be able to continue working their jobs and participating in the recreational activites that they enjoy.
Secondly, we call ourselves 'Active Life' because we know that the doctor alone can only do so much to help the patient get and stay healthy. It is important for patients to take an active role in the healing process. This may include stretching/exercise regimens, lifestyle changes, and proper doctor-recommended physical follow-up.
