Currently, most conventional chiropractors focus on goals like decreasing muscle spasm, increasing range of motion and reducing pain, often with the help of various therapies. These are all very worthy and excellent goals and many chiropractors are very good at helping people in this way.


At the Happy Spine we focus on Neuro-Spinal Optimization. Unlike traditional chiropractors, Neuro-Spinal Optimization focuses on the function and structure of the spinal cord/nervous system and spine.

The nervous system is like the electrical system in your home. In order for your lights, furnace, and appliances to function correctly, your electrical system must be working normally. The same is true of your nervous system. Neuro-Spinal Optimization focuses on the normal functioning of your spinal cord and nerves and their connection to the bony structures of your spine to ensure an optimum expression of health.

It is obvious that a malfunctioning electrical system will lead to secondary effects such as light bulbs burning out and the need to replace appliances too soon. Likewise, a poorly functioning spine and nervous system can lead to a variety of possible secondary conditions or symptoms.

The objective of Neuro-Spinal Optimization is to address the underlying cause of the abnormal function of the nervous system and spine. The underlying condition we focus on at the Happy Spine is called a Neuro-Adaptive Syndrome.

Where most healthcare approaches aim to Restore you to where you were before the secondary conditions or symptoms, our focus is on helping your body to Reorganize and become more adaptable, allowing you to move forward with better health and a better life.
