Deane’s approach to caring for his patients is a process of recognizing lifestyle patterns and listening carefully to each patient’s description of their ailment, with the goal of finding the cause. He uses a variety of techniques to correct spinal misalignments, and suggests relevant yoga stretches and exercises to address the issues. Deane believes in a team approach to facilitating healing and full recovery. Educating his patients is a key component to resolving and preventing ongoing pain syndromes.
Within us all resides an innate power to keep our bodies in health and harmony. At certain times in our life, there is a time and a place for medicine, but Chiropractic care focuses on the natural healing power within us by removing stress off the nervous system and thereby helping the body to heal itself. A well-balanced and aligned spinal column can restore and enhance each person’s health potential and needs to be maintained for optimal vitality.
