However you may have found us, welcome to French Broad Chiropractic! We are so honored to have you follow along with us and be a part of our community. We hope that as you continue your journey with us, we become like family to you. Our heart is for you, for the families of Asheville, for hope and healing from the inside out.
We realize that we think a little differently. We do things a little differently. We like to explore outside the box and in places that some may overlook. We take a look at why things are the way that they are. We seek to address the cause and give answers in a simple, easy-to-understand way, not simply put a band-aid on. We hope that as you read our blog posts, engage with us in our practice and find yourself a part of this tribe, you feel inspired and empowered to make the best decisions for yourself and your family!
As a spouse, a business partner, a parent, a yogi, an adventurer, a doctor, an introvert, a crossfitter, a public speaker, a CEO, a student – whatever hats you may wear – we all share similar fundamental desires to some level as humans. We all want security. We all want significance. We all want to be the best possible versions of ourselves for the people around us. We all want the best shot we can get at this thing called life.
We understand that that isn’t always achieved without struggle. There are bumps in the road that are unexpected. Life happens. It’s the manner in which we adapt to those stressors and difficulties that make us resilient and flexible. Chiropractic is often thought about as a pain relief therapy. While pain relief is often a side effect that our practice members experience throughout their course of care with us, we are thrilled that for us, chiropractic is so much more than that.
We all learned in 4th grade science class that the nervous system is the master control panel of our entire bodies. As you’re reading this, your heart is beating, your lungs are breathing, your breakfast is digesting, all without you even having to think about it. Everything happens in our physiology by the brain telling the body to do it and the body responding to what the brain tells it. This communication happens though the brain, spinal cord and the nerves that come out of it, sending supply and function to every single organ, tissue and muscle in the body.
When the brain and body are communicating well, we feel good. We function well. We sleep soundly. We recover better. When the body and brain aren’t communicating at an optimal level, it begins to show in various forms. Maybe we aren’t sleeping well. We feel sluggish. We are getting sick often. We’re feeling stressed and anxious. We have pains and illnesses. We’re grouchy to our partner cause we don’t feel good. Anyone been there? Those little signs are our body’s “check engine light” coming on to say that we could use some help.
As chiropractors, we restore brain-body connection through adjustments to the spine that directly impact the nervous system. Since the nervous system is king and controls everything in the body, that allows the chiropractic adjustment the potential to have an impact on everything in the body! This includes digestion, sleep, fertility, mood, ear infections, sensory processing disorders, baby positioning in pregnancy, sports performance, anxiety, colic and even as awesome and nerdy as pre-frontal cortex function in the brain! We don’t claim to “fix” or “cure” anything. We simply allow the body to do what it was designed to do. And things begin to shift on their own! We are always amazed by what our practice members tell us. We believe the healer is within each of us and we play a role in unlocking that healing potential.
Whether you’ve got a specific challenge to work through or you’re simply looking to elevate the current state of health you’re in, we are excited to stand by you and help you achieve your goals! It is our absolute joy and passion to help you be the best you that you can be.
