The chiropractic philosophy says that our nervous system is the master control system of the body, and it relates the individual to the outside world. All the nerves in the body begin or end in the central nervous system. This special collection of nerves is enclosed by our vertebral bones. When the spine is moving correctly these bones shift freely on one another, and the nerves move with them effectively providing nutrients and information to the body.
But what happens if individual bones get stuck? Now the nerve that is passing between those bones decreases in activity and the ability of the body to nurture itself has been impeded on. As a result, organs and muscles start to malfunction and the body sends out signals that your brain interprets as pain. Pain is extremely useful; it is your body's way of trying to tell you that something is not functioning the way it should. Over time the body adapts and some of these new sensations become "normal" and the brain gives up on reading the pain signals. Your pain may go away but the reason you had pain in the first place may still be there! Through this process we have a downwards spiral into degeneration and additional or worse pain signals.
Through chiropractic adjustments, we can correct those fixations, and restore normal function of the spine and to all the tissue surrounding the source of the pain. When normal function returns and balance is brought back to your nervous system, the body stops sending pain signals and the degenerative cycle halts.Through this process, your body returns to its normal and you get to do all of the activities that you need and want to do- pain free!.

Graduated Cum Laude from Cleveland Chiropractic College. My wife and I live in Kansas City with our two boys. We love what the Brookside community represents and we are thrilled to support the residents of Brookside with the service of outstanding chiropractic care.
I am excited to announce that I will be relocating to the Brookside area and opening Brookside Chiropractic to better serve the community! We are located between Oak Street and Holmes road. Find us on the map here.
Our care is comprehensive and focused around the individual and his or her needs. Each care plan is created specifically to address the needs of each new patient.
Who can be adjusted?
- Chiropractic care is safe for all ages! Newborns, babies, children, teens, adults, and senior citizens.
Do you accept insurance?
- Yes, we allow patients to bill their own insurance at anytime.
Can I adjust myself?
-No. Chiropractors move joints into a space called the paraphysiological space, and we do so with an intended effect at a specific segment in the spine or body. This type of motion and depth cannot be obtained from you attempting to "pop" your own spine.
What education do Chiropractors have?
- Chiropractors have extensive training. For example, I have a full undergraduate degree with a four year post-graduate degree (which is considered a First Professional Degree). This is the same level of education as a Medical Doctor.
What is the cost of care?
- After your consultation we will create a Personal Care Plan that establishes cost and sets forth a treatment plan specific to your needs. These vary in cost and duration, but rest assured we attempt to get you out of pain and back to your regular life as soon as possible.
