About Chiropractic Care

The word “chiropractic” comes from the Greek, meaning “to be done by hand.” This type of health care focuses on the spine and other joints of the body, and their connection to the nervous system.

Holistic in approach, chiropractic care helps people maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery. An estimated 50 million Americans see a chiropractor each year. Ninety-five percent of chiropractic users in the past year say it’s effective, and 89 percent recommend chiropractic to their family and friends.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

As we like to say, anyone who has a spine can benefit from care.  Men and women. Young and not so young. Even children. Even babies.

We work with your whole body because there’s more to the spine than bones, and there’s more to your body than the spine.  

Your body is an integrated system, but your spinal cord is the communication hub between the brain and the nerves throughout your body.

Your brain’s job is to work through your spinal cord to talk and listen to your entire body through the peripheral nervous system so that everything works together. It’s an integrated system. But when an area of the body hurts, that means something is getting in the way of – or interfering with necessary, critical energy flow. 

With its communication system disrupted, the nervous system is less able to release tension, correct misalignments, or respond to additional stressors. This distresses the entire body and can produce symptoms from pain to muscle spasms to stomach upset to sleeplessness to depression. So it may not be your back that ails you but paying attention to it will help what does.

Yes, but we want to do more than merely relieve your pain. We want you to heal.

Every day, your body is bombarded by stressors; toxins, trauma, and thoughts that can make you hurt. Pain has a protective biological purpose, which is to let the brain know that something is wrong and needs attention.

When your brain receives a message that something is wrong, it responds with instructions that lead the body toward healing. When the body is healed, the pain goes away.

Your body’s immune system works — thanks to the intricate communication network made up of your brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system.

When you feel well, it’s because your brain and spinal cord (your central nervous system) — are successfully managing the communications among your nerves, organs, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

Yes. When your body works the best it can, all systems work better – including your immune system. Regular care helps keep your nervous system working without obstacles that can weaken your health – like chronic inflammation, pain, and stress.  Your health matters greatly, and many things about it are in your control.  Being proactive with your health through chiropractic care is one of best ways to keep your good health.

Good chiropractic care can help promote proper growth, boost a child’s immune system, and develop a strong, resilient neuro/muscular/skeletal system.

Getting born is hard. There are lots of ways a newborns body, brain, and nervous system can be injured or traumatized by birth twisting, compression, accelerated delivery, prolonged delivery, forceps, suction, breech positioning, to name a few. Unresolved birth trauma can lead to any of a number of problems, from asthma to hyperactivity. Oneota Health Solution’s approach to care can help a newborn’s body repair and recover from a difficult birth experience.

Our Approach

Dr. Wilke uses a powerful technique called Network Chiropractic. We do not push on your back or twist your neck. Our approach is completely natural, uncommonly gentle, and remarkably effective.

I use the treatment techniques I have found to be the most effective and produce the best results.

Chiropractic care will not hurt you. Our technique is so gentle and subtle that it can be used with newborns. We do not use the vigorous, forceful pushing and twisting that many people expect from a chiropractic treatment. There is no popping or cracking.

No. Our touch is gentle. Our technique includes no forceful, aggressive pushing on bones or joints. Learn more about our no-crack philosophy here.

It depends. Please talk to us after your surgery. Our gentle approach makes chiropractic care safe for most people post-surgery, and it can help speed your recovery.

Our gentle approach to chiropractic care is safe, and it can play an important role in your recovery. We won’t hurt you.

Effective chiropractic care is a process.  It takes time to train – or re-train your brain, spinal cord, and nervous system to work together as a well-functioning team. Just as with any training, your body needs more than one session to learn all it needs to know. We teach your body better ways to respond to stressors and help it become stronger, more resilient, and smarter at responding to whatever daily life throws its way. In the meantime, daily life throws things your way, and your body needs practice.

The only way to know whether our care is right for you is to schedule an appointment.
