With neurofeedback, clients learn how to quiet brainwaves associated with low performance and increase brainwaves associated with optimal brain function. Much like physical exercises, this strengthens and develops specific muscles. The more your brain is exercised into reaching a new more comfortable, more efficient position, the better and stronger it becomes. Like any new skill, it simply requires feedback and practice.

Anxiety Depression Chronic Fatigue
Chronic Pain Issues Addiction OCD / Tics
Insomnia Migraines PTSD
Fibromyalgia Tension Headaches Headaches
Hyperactivity Memory Loss Autism Spectrum
Concentration Post-Stroke Recovery Traumatic Brain Injury
Focus Issues Anxiety Disorders Attention Deficit Disorders
Anger Issues Panic Attacks Seizures

 

Chiropractic care goes hand in hand with neurofeedback and offers clients a way to take their healing one step further.

Just as neurofeedback helps regulate and synchronize brainwaves to help the brain function easier and more efficiently, chiropractic helps remove interferences in the nerve system allowing the brain to have unobstructed communications with all the body systems; that includes the heart, lungs, and every other organ, gland and cell in the body. The brain controls all function in the body and chiropractic helps make it easier for the brain to do this.

Coaching Ties It All Together!

The path to wellness is relatively simple: First, identify which systems in the body are not functioning correctly. Second, remove the causes of imbalance. Third, nourish each system with what it needs to function optimally. Then, the body’s natural intelligence and healing ability take over and automatically repair the remaining problems.

We’re all on the path of discovering what it is we really and truly want. Coaching helps you identify who you are, what you really want and how to attain it.

Can We Help You?

The best way to see if Next Level Training can help improve your life is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Steve Cagen. During this time, you will discuss where you are at – versus where you want to be. If agreed, we will move into the process of performing a brain map and spinal exam to see where there is room for improvement and how Next Level Training can help you create and achieve your personalized wellness/life plan. Together, we can take your life and your health to the Next Level!

The brain controls all function in the body – chiropractic helps make it easier for the brain to do this.

Chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy of all things natural. Philosophy is what sets chiropractic apart from every other healing art. It is based on the belief that at birth, a spark of universal intelligence was placed inside of you. Innate intelligence is the conductor of the body and from the moment of birth it controls and coordinates all function.

Doctors of chiropractic understand the miracles of the universe and understand human anatomy and physiology. With this understanding, we are able to remove interferences in the body’s nerve system which could be creating a premature breakdown in health.

The brain is the most important part of the human body. It is where innate resides and it is responsible for keeping your body functioning. How well it is able to do this up to each individual. The brain keeps everything working by sending messages up and down the spinal cord and then out to the spinal nerves. This super bundle of nerves runs down through the spinal bones (vertebrae) and bundles exit from between the vertebra at their prescribed location. From there, they branch of to the organs, glands, and tissues in their particular territory.

If a spinal bone should move out of proper alignment (subluxate) it may place damaging pressure on the nerves exiting that region. Once this happens the bones begin to degenerate and the hole the nerve bundle exits though will narrow (stenosis). When pressure is placed on the nerve, even for a short period of time the affected regions will begin to suffer a state of dis-ease. If left uncorrected for a long period of time, poor health with result.

Doctors of chiropractic in this office have been trained to locate, analyze, and correct vertebral subluxation. The benefit is increased health and longevity.

Why Does Chiropractic Work?

Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if your body is working right. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine called a “subluxation” can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments can help improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.

Our Primary Focus:

There¹s more to chiropractic than the relief of headaches and back pain! Our primary focus is the integrity of your nervous system, which controls and regulates every cell and tissue of your body. The moving bones of the spinal column can impair this vital communication link between your brain and your body. We help improve the function and structure of your spine, reducing nervous system compromise. The result? Even non-spinal related health problems can show improvement. Without drugs or surgery. Regardless of age. For over a century. Naturally.

1More often than not, when we tell someone that we are chiropractors, they immediately associate our vocation with neck and/or back pain. They usually say, “I used to go to a chiropractor when I threw my back out,” but, what they do not realize is that chiropractic is a health care modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain.

Chiropractic is a lifestyle that involves all aspect of wellness including exercise, nutrition, personal development, stress relief, etc. We have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life (including newborns, children, and adolescents) and the outcome has been miraculous. Children, who were diagnosed with colic or about to have tubes placed in their ears, were able to find a solution that actually lasted for a lifetime by means of the chiropractic adjustment.

We define chiropractic as the discovery and removal of the vertebral subluxation, which is interference that is taking place in your central nervous system (CNS). It is important to recognize that our CNS is the master controller of our entire body and it directly correlates to our ability to function and exist. People who are suffering from allergies, asthma, headaches, etc. are living in a subluxated state, but when we provide these individuals with an adjustment, we are able to remove the interference, and the condition dissipates. In addition, patients who are under regular chiropractic care (1-2x each month) actually prevent these situations from impeding upon their lives.

Maybe you are wondering where a “subluxation” comes from, and if this is the case, it is the direct result of everything that we do. Lifestyle stresses, both perceived as positive and negative, result in nerve interference, which needs to be addressed. For example, during the holiday season, many people tend to consume a substantial amount of food and alcohol and also spend more time with family (which some would consider stressful). What we have seen, is that after the holiday season, people typically get SICK, which happens to be caused by a subluxation. The food, alcohol, and family represent lifestyle stresses, even if they are labeled as positive, because our body is extremely sensitive to external factors. This is why chiropractic care needs to be an essential component of your life and something that we encourage your entire family to consider.

When visiting our practice, we take the chiropractic lifestyle to a level where it becomes REAL for you. Not only do we offer the adjustment, but we combine these programs with tips on fitness, nutrition, and stress relief. We take into account your entire body and the lifestyle choices that you make when developing customized protocols for you to follow once you become a patient in our office. With this being said, please contact our office today that we can schedule a health consultation with you!

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.

010.jpgA Patient Speaks

While sitting on my porch one day, thinking of my present problem, I noticed a plant that looked dead. Its leaves were turning brown, the stalk and branches were withered and very dry. Life was nearly at an end for this plant.

As I studied it, the cause of the plants difficulty was evident. A large rock was lying across the stalk of the plant. I removed it for closed observation. The spot where the rock had been was in bad condition and had started to turn black.

I watered the plant and gave it a little fertilizer. I was proud that this plant would be saved from apparent premature death because a simple thing like a rock that lay across its main life supply had been removed.

Patience Pays

Finally one day, as if by magic, the stalk took on a new look. It seemed to be filled with fresh, new energy and the leaf stems had lost their dead look. The plant again seemed to express feelings. Gone were the wrinkles from the leaves, which now began to show signs of new life. Some of the bad withered leaves disappeared and to add grace to this mastery of art, the terrible brown spot where the rock had lain for so long was repairing itself, and new plant tissue was replacing old. The plant would live.

The Principles

Principles were involved. Life had to flow through the stalk to all parts of the plant to maintain its natural beauty and life that the rock had once removed, nature was again in control of the plant and nature alone knew what to do. And so it is with chiropractic. Nature’s processes of repair seen slow at times, but they are evermore sure.

Like a flash I remembered I had been to a chiropractor years ago who told me that life energy flowed out of the brain stalk and spinal nerves to all parts of the body and made us live normal healthy lives. He said there were vertebrae pinching on delicate nerves that were causing my trouble and that all I needed to be well and happy again was to have my spine adjusted to the normal position. The life energy is my body would then do all that was necessary to make me well again, if allowed sufficient time.

Perseverance

It was ten years ago that I had the opportunity to correct this trouble and learn how the body was controlled through the nervous system. I failed to do myself the favor and give the chiropractor time to do his work. I could have saved ten years of suffering if I had persevered just a little longer.

I look forward again now and give thanks. I have discovered the simple truth for myself that for every effect, there is a cause. I can plainly see that the cause of sickness is pressure on the nervous system that retards the normal function in the body and if it is not corrected, disease will be the result.

What Is Happy Brain Therapy? 

Dr. Steve Cagen, clinical director and co-founder of Brevard Brain Training located in Brevard, NC explains Happy Brain Therapy as a form of EEG Biofeedback. It is a drugless approach to treating Neurological Dysregulation Syndrome (NDS) that may be associated with the symptoms of many brain based conditions such as ADHD, OCD, PTSD, Insomnia, Anxiety, Tourette’s, Pain and even Autism.

By using a computerized EEG (Electroencephalogram), electrical impulses known as brainwaves can be tracked and analyzed while the patient performs several different tasks such as reading or watching TV.  Ideally, the brain should switch between different brainwaves frequencies/ speeds.  If the brain cannot produce the needed brainwave it will use an alternate, less efficient wave to get the job done.  It is like taking the Neuro 1long country road to get to the store instead of the highway.  Effective, but not efficient. Over time this inefficient wave becomes dominant causing changes in outward behavior.

ADD/ADHD: When you perform a task, like making breakfast, you should produce fast brainwaves (Beta waves) to keep you focused and allow for quick communication within the brain.  ADHD sufferers struggle to produce Beta waves.  Drugs like Ritalin elevate the fast brainwaves for a short period of time reducing symptoms, however, these drugs are derived from Cocaine and can have serious adverse health effects.  The Happy Brain Therapy training program teaches patients how to elevate the Beta waves on their own, without harmful drugs.  Simply put, it is exercise for the brain.

How Does It Work?  

During a typical training session, sensors are placed on the scalp and brainwave activity is monitored by aNeuro 2 computer as the patient relaxes and watches a DVD.  If the correct brainwaves are produced the movie will play; if the mind wanders, the computer detects the change and the movie will pause. This protocol is repeated with video games, jigsaw puzzles and tactile stimulation.  As the brain learns it becomes “re-wired”. This is called neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to adapt and open new neural pathways allowing for more efficient lines of communication to be created. Once the changes take place, the effects are permanent.  And best of all, there are no drugs and no side effects.

Tooth decay occurs well before you get the first warning signs of pain. That is why the dental profession recommends regular check-ups which include teeth cleaning and gum care as well as the regular home care of brushing and flossing teeth. Wear and tear of the engine in a car will occurs well before the oil runs out, but everyone knows to change the oil every three thousand miles.

“Similarly, according to chiropractic theory and practice, vertebral subluxation [the area of the spine or other joint which is stuck and needs to be adjusted] may have a significant impact on health before the appearance of pain or other signs and symptoms. For example, loss of movement or stiffness in a spinal joint may lead to associated degenerative changes [osteoarthritis] – changes that can be prevented or even reversed if there is timely treatment to restore movement in the joint, but that may be irreversible before warning signs of pain appear.”

In several experiments, the knee joints of rabbits were immobilized [splinted so they could not bend] for 16 weeks. Within ONE WEEK degenerative changes began to occur and by week 12 the joints were completely fused. The follow-up experiment was even more interesting. In one group of rabbits which were immobilized for five weeks, the splints were then removed. Over the next 18 months, some were released to “normal cage activity” and some jogged on a treadmill five days per week. The rabbits in both of these groups had NO increase in the level of osteoarthritis once they resumed regular activity.

So what’s the bottom line: Loss of movement in a joint leads to significant degeneration (arthritis) and this may happen well before symptoms occur. Timely restoration of this movement by chiropractic adjustments and regular exercise will prevent, halt and may reverse these degenerative changes. From The Chiropractic Report, May 2004, p.1

Top feature 2Good health is a process which most people are capable of creating and, like most things worth having it requires learning and following a few simple rules.

Understanding that you create good health is the first step. Everything you do, every action you take and every thought you have affects your health, your waistline and every aspect of your  life. Just as you have created where you are today (yes you have) you can begin creating where you will be tomorrow. Achieving good health is something you learn, it is a process which requires change and it is a choice you make. Where you are now is simply a culmination of the choices you have made in the past  – good or bad. You can either choose to be healthy or you choose to be sick. You can either choose to be fat or you choose to be thin. The choice is yours and we guarantee the answers do not lie in drugs or dieting. The good news is no matter where you are at this very moment, no matter how sick or overweight you are  – you can learn the process or making good choices and we can show you how. 

Unfortunately and all to often people mistakenly believe that they are doomed to a life of poor health, but that is not so. The Cagen Method of Wellness combined with our Mind-Body-Thin program has helped thousands of people from all walks of life reach new levels of health they never thought possible and we can help you also.

The question for today are – Are you ready to take back your life, your health and your waistline? Are you sick and  tired of being sick and tired? Is your life is of control and most importantly – are you are ready to begin making massive changes. If you are ready, we can help – but you have to take the first step.

Call our office and register to attend one of our introductory classes held on the first and third Tuesday’s of the month at 5:30pm. We care. (828) 885-7100

images (1)See the world as an abundant, providing, friendly place. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. When you see the world as abundant and friendly, your intentions are genuine possibilities. They will, in fact, become a certainty, because your world will be experienced from the higher frequencies. In this first step, you’re receptive to a world that provides rather than restricts. You’ll see a world that wants you to be successful and abundant, rather than one that conspires against you.

Now switch the words successful and abundant with thin, healthy and joyous and see how your life changes.
