Dr. Michael Townsend and the staff at Chiropractic First have a genuine concern for your well-being and health! Call us today and we can develop a chiropractic plan specific for you.

We would like to explain how our unique approach works and why we might be able to help you. We believe all health problems have three causes. 

The first cause of health problems is poor nutrition and chemicals in our water, food and air. The US rates 36th in life expectancy but is #1 in obesity, diabetes and other chronic diseases. There are 82,000 chemicals that can enter your body weekly. To defend against them your body surrounds them in fat. We help our patients remove these harmful chemicals while improving their nutrition and balancing their biochemistry. 

The second cause of health problems is hormone imbalances from stress. Prolonged stress leads to hormone imbalances related to the stress glands of the body know as the adrenal glands. These glands secrete hormones that control sleep, digestion, weight gain, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, allergies, arthritis, immunity, heart function, fatigue, etc. These glands can be checked and if malfunctioning, they can be repaired through diet and supplements. 

The third cause of health problems is undetected neurological damage from traumas related to their symptoms. We can have falls and accidents that occurred in the past, which can cause undetected and long-lasting damage not just to muscles, but to nerves as well. Nerves control all function in the body, and if they are not working properly, neither will your body. Headaches, shoulder, back or neck pain as well as numbness usually come from undetected nerve damage.

"The Doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."
