The human body is a machine: an intricate system of individual parts that all rely on coordinated communications from the nervous system. When that system of communication breaks or slows down, the machine may not necessarily shut down, but it will operate at less than peak efficiency. Dr. Roger Verno has dedicated more than 20 years of his life to restoring those lines of communication, using chiropractic care to help improve neurological function and jump-start the body's natural healing processes.
At their core, Dr. Verno's chiropractic adjustments aim to relieve chronic pains while addressing the underlying conditions that caused those problems in the first place. Since these sorts of precision tweaks are especially valuable for athletes, Dr. Verno often lends his therapeutic talents to everyone from football and basketball teammates to triathlon competitors and shot put quality-control testers.
When a relatively simple hands-on adjustment might not be enough to fully address a patient's needs, Dr. Verno and his team aren't afraid to utilize technological assistance. X-ray imaging gives the staff a clearer look at potential problem spots, and computerized spinal-decompression systems help them pinpoint and treat the pinched nerves that can cause lower back pain and sciatica. Cold laser therapy and ultrasound treatments also help the therapists address specialized problems within the body's intricate framework of muscles, nerves, and organs.
