Can Your Body Survive an Earthquake?
Surviving an earthquake can be a traumatic experience, even if it is only a minor quake. It is always nice to come back home and find the house is still standing, but just because the house is still standing doesn't mean there wasn't any damage. After an earthquake we need to check for any cracks in the wall, make sure the roof isn't leaking, check the plumbing and electrical systems, and make sure there are no gas leaks. If we are fortunate, there may be only a few broken dishes and glasses, and a few books on the floor. Fortunately the human body is designed to survive an earthquake much better than a house.

7 Foods to Avoid
The foods that we eat and the things we drink have a tremendous effect on our body chemistry. The things that we eat either bring our body towards an alkaline state (healthy) or an acidic state (unhealthy). If your body moves towards an acidic state then this increases inflammation in the body, which moves us toward pain. If you have existing health conditions like osteoarthritis, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, painful joints, etc., or if you have any pain problems then, eating foods that increase acid and inflammation will create greater pain and dysfunction.

Individuals who sit with proper posture have higher self-esteem, better moods, higher energy levels, and even more positive speech. Bad posture not only affects your mental well being, but has detrimental physical effects as well. Read More

Leg Pain and Chiropractic Care
Leg pain affects many people on a daily basis. Depending upon the cause and each individual’s situation, symptoms of leg pain may present in many different ways. For some, the pain begins in the lower back and travels down one or both legs. Some experience pain down the back of the legs (sciatica), some the front of the thighs, and others down the side of the legs. Others experience pain only below the knee or solely in the feet or toes. Read More
Chiropractic care is based on the fact that your body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism which is controlled by your nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves).
Interference to the nervous system occurs when the movable bones of the spine (vertebrae) slip out of place due to everyday jolts, bumps, twists, slips, or jars. This misalignment narrows the small openings between vertebrae through which the nerves pass to reach all parts of the body. When misalignment, or subluxation, happens, the vertebrae press on a nerve, irritate it, and interfere with the transmission of nerve signals to the body. Chiropractors detect and correct these subluxations, restoring the body’s nerve signals by gently replacing the bone to its normal position with gentle pressures called adjustments.
Kempsville Chiropractic uses chiropractic care and gentle adjustments to successfully to treat the many conditions dealing with pain and range of motion, as well as providing support to the function of your internal organs. Numerous problems effecting the spine, neck, muscles, and internal organs can by corrected through proper chiropractic care without the use of drugs and other medications. Here is a partial list of some of the common conditions we see on a daily basis.
- Back Pain

Health is a Process
Chiropractic care uses a unique approach to health. Rather than masking or treating just the symptom, chiropractors detect the underlying cause of the symptom, correct it, and then maintain wellness through a three-phase process:
- Initial Phase:
During the initial phase, based on your health history and exam findings, it is our goal to reduce and eliminate your symptoms.
- Restoration/Corrective Phase:
During this intermediate phase, we transition and focus on your health goals. The emphasis now is to correct the underlying cause of your symptom or condition and facilitate restoration of long-term health.
- Wellness Phase:
During this advanced phase, we help you maintain continued wellness and optimum health through regular chiropractic care and lifestyle management.
Chiropractic care is beneficial for people of all ages, including infants and children. Many structural problems that may not cause pain until later years are the result of birth or childhood injuries. A healthy spine and nervous system are the first steps to becoming a healthy child.
Your First Visit to Kempsville Chiropractic
During your first visit to the Kempsville Chiropractic office, you will receive a thorough comprehensive examination including the latest technology to document any interference to your nervous system, and any necessary X-rays. After careful review of your exam and X-ray findings, we will recommend an individualized health program designed to help you reach your optimum health potential, maximizing the quality of your life.
Many health conditions can be traced to lifestyle choices. Because of this, we will be advising you on the need for exercise, postural improvements, nutrition, stress management, rest (sleep), and other aspects of your health.
