Nearly thirty years ago I woke up one morning and could not walk. I crawled to the table for breakfast and after three hours I was able to delicately stand up. I was nineteen at the time and thought I would be living with lower back pain for the rest of my life. I took some advice from my mother, who had past hip problems, and made an appointment to see her chiropractor. At the time I had no idea what a chiropractor was or how they could help me, but I was desperate and needed something done. So with much skepticism I began treatment for my chronic lower back pain. I was amazed that after several visits I was 100% improved! I have been a chiropractic patient ever since and have never had another episode of lower back pain. My Name is Donald Lavigne, DC and that is why I decided to become a chiropractor… because I saw the amazing results that chiropractic could do and I wanted to be able to help other people the same way. You might be asking how chiropractic can help keep a person healthy. Let me explain it in a nutshell.
Our philosophy is that structure effects function. If the structure is perfect then the body is able to function at its best. On the other hand, if there is an imbalance in the structure then the joints, muscles, ligaments, and nerves are all effected by this imbalance. Until that imbalance is corrected the stress to the affected areas will continue to wear down the body and cause PAIN!
I am sure you would agree that unless the cause of a problem is resolved then the problem will never completely go away. Sure you may have days that the symptoms are not too severe, but you may also find that you can never kick the problem. It comes and goes with the different types of stressors you have on a daily basis.
At our office our goal and main focus is to find the root of the problem and correct it. I mentioned that I am a chiropractor, but we also have physical therapists, Andrea Gosselin, DPT and Erin Polos, PT at our office. The addition of physical therapy has been a blessing and I feel very fortunate to be able to provide these services as a natural health care provider. It has made an amazing difference in the care of our patients.
