FOR NEW PATIENTS
Chiropractor in Austin, TX
Colm Chiropractic is located in Austin, Texas and focuses on helping people restore their health without the use of drugs or surgery. Science has shown us the nervous system is the most important organ system in the body, and the key to our bodies' amazing healing power.
We seek to improve its function through our unique approach, Neuro Specific Prone. This gentle, painless approach works exceptionally well with people in pain, neurological conditions, children, pregnancy and anyone who wishes to experience a more energetic, pain free, healthy life.
Your First Chiropractic Visit
Your first visit will consist of a complimentary consultation, where you will begin with a no pressure, one-on-one conversation with the doctor. If he determines your case to be one he can help, we will discuss all of our procedures and pricing options, and you will be given the option to proceed with an examination if you choose to do so.
The examination consists of ultra modern digital x-rays (when necessary), orthopedic and neurological testing and a Neuro Specific Prone palpatory analysis to determine the health of your spine and nervous system.
We work with all major medical insurances as well as PIP and workers compensation. We provide many flexible payment plan options because we believe finances should not stand in the way of experiencing great health and an exceptional quality of life.
Traditional chiropractors focus on reducing muscle spasms, improving range of motion and the temporary reduction of pain. This is what most people associate chiropractic with, twisting and popping of the neck and back. This is great in the short term, however, over a long period of time this can cause the build-up of scar tissue and ligament laxity or instability.
Most chiropractors practice this way and they are usually great at what they do in this realm. It falls under the category of symptom relief and management care, also known as “band-aid” care.
Neuro Specific Prone
Dr. Roger Sperry, a nobel prize winning scientist stated “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by movement of the spine.” When there are areas in the spine that are not moving correctly, the brain begins to starve and the nerves that exit the spine become compressed creating interference in the communication between the brain and body.
This is called a subluxation. When the brain and body can't communicate due to this interference in the nervous system we end up with secondary conditions.
