Here at Carter Natural Health Center, we specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
It is our number one goal to have you healthy as quickly as possible. Every time that you enter our doors, we will evaluate how the last session went so that every appointment is a step in the right direction. No matter how you hurt yourself, we will find a comfortable way to safely help you.
What is Chiropractic?
Your brain coordinates all functions in your body. Along with the rest of the nervous system (your spinal cord and nerves), this is the master system of your body, enabling all functions – including growth and healing.
Everyone knows that if you were to cut off the communication from your brain to your body, as in severing the spinal cord, your body dies. To put it simply: the nerves carry the messages that allow your body to live.
If you reduce that communication slightly instead of cutting it off, dysfunction will occur. This can include pains, aches, decreased performance, and organ troubles, among other issues.
Your spine is protecting this amazing system, but it can also get in the way. By looking to the spine and enhancing this communication, we help restore your body’s natural healing ability.
This is how we are able to get such wide-ranging results with chiropractic. We are addressing the issues that prevent your body from working correctly instead of trying to suppress a symptom for the short-term.
Trust your body. Trust your instincts. Chiropractic may be different from how you have thought about a health issue in the past, and different is good! Thinking about your health in this way is logical – and it works!
Compared to other options, you have very few risks with chiropractic. In fact, studies have found that our “side-effects” are decreased needs for pharmaceuticals, improvements in conditions unrelated to back pain, increased energy, less money spent on other hospital and clinics, and many more great results.

Kids and Chiropractic
Kids respond very well to chiropractic care. Our techniques are safe and gentle, even for newborn infants. Kids have a spine and nervous system just like adults and it’s much better to grow healthy kids than to fix broken adults!
