Welcome to Michiana Chiropractic Center

Mission Statement
we strive to eliminate the debilitating effects of stress on the nervous system and improve your overall health.

Vision Statement
“The Doctor of the future will give no medicine, but, will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in cause and prevention of disease.” ~ Thomas A. Edison

Practice Philosophy
Chiropractic Care:
Chiropractic adjustments interrupt the stress patterns of the nervous system, allowing the body to maintain a more healing state. Regular adjustments will improve immune system function, helping patients fight disease and illness. Adjustments bring balance to the whole body by returning the spine to a neutral position. A well-balanced body is more protected from injury and everyday physical stress. Dr. Brown will perform a thorough physical examination, discuss your personal health concerns and create a chiropractic treatment plan designed to eliminate stress from the body.

Fitness:
Regular physical activity is essential to a healthy body. Physical activity naturally decreases the chemicals produced by the body in response to stress, thereby reducing anxiety and depression. Additionally, strengthening joints and muscles protects the human body from injury and illness. Dr. Brown will evaluate your current fitness level and present a custom fitness program based on your needs.

Diet:
Proper diet is much more than simply limiting calories. Heavily-processed foods and chemical additives in the modern diet damage essential organs, most notably the liver and kidneys. There is an overwhelming amount of nutritional information available and making the best decisions can be difficult. Dr. Brown will develop a personalized nutrition plan based on your goals and coach you to success.

How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic care is an essential element of health care. Each person is a self-healing organism, and that healing is controlled by the nervous system. Millions of signals leave the brain and travel down the spinal cord, out to every organ and tissue. Those organs and tissues send signals back to the brain to report on their function.

Improperly positioned or poorly moving bones in the spine, called subluxations, can interfere with the exchange of this vital information by rubbing or stretching nerves and thus affects the function of organs and tissues.

Spinal adjustments can help restore normal communication between the brain and the body. Improved nervous system function often leads to the improvement of a patient’s health.

Children and Chiropractic
Young children often see increased benefits from chiropractic care. The young brain learns to do many things, all at the same time. As kids learn to walk and talk, their nervous system is learning how to deal with the stresses of our environment. Pediatric studies show that chiropractic can help with problems such as colic, poor appetite, ear infections or difficulty sleeping. Pediatric adjustments are safe and gentle. Knowing exactly where and how to push, a chiropractor can deliver an adjustment using the tip of a pinky finger with less pressure than you would use to strike a computer keyboard.

Patient Care
We always reserve extra time with Dr. Brown for in-depth new patient consultations. The doctor will always take the time necessary to answer any and all questions regarding your health and how chiropractic care can help you. Here are some of the benefits you can expect:
• A complete chiropractic evaluation and examination designed to identify the underlying causes of your health concerns.
• If needed, X-rays may be taken at Three Rivers Hospital to rule out pathology, structural disorders, and to determine how chiropractic care may correct the underlying cause of your condition.
• Modern, state-registered X-ray equipment designed to use the lowest level of radiation possible while providing the highest quality image for interpretation.
• Dr. Brown will then discuss the findings based on your past history, tests and exams so that you can fully understand why you are experiencing the health concerns that brought you to our office.
• Chiropractic adjusting techniques which are up-to-date, well-researched, relevant, specific, and safe.
