Chiropractic Care in Bellevue WA
We do something very special. At our office, we help your body express its own miraculous healing ability. We believe that all healing in the body occurs inside out, the way nature intended. We advocate that your body is more than capable of taking care of itself and expressing optimal health as long as it is not in an alarm state. Unfortunately, physical, emotional and chemical stresses all have the potential to turn on alarms in our brain that don’t always turn off when they should. For example, when you run up a flight of stairs your heart rate and blood pressure should go up; that is normal. However, when you stop they should return to appropriate. When you eat a meal it should increase stomach acid production to aid digestion and when you stop eating, acid production should decrease. Increased blood pressure and elevated stomach acid are both normal functions for a given set of circumstances but when those circumstances no longer exist, they should normalize. The problem is sometimes they don’t, sometimes the body gets stuck in an alarm state. So you go to the doctor with high blood pressure or reflux and they put you on medications for the symptom. In essence what they are saying is that your body is incapable of governing itself, and you need the meds to take over. But what happens when the drug wears off? The symptoms come right back because the underlying problem was never addressed. Remember, all true healing occurs inside out as nature intended, and drugs are outside in. Those alarms we mentioned take place in the subconscious mind, the part of the brain that runs your body. The conscious mind thinks, reasons, makes decisions, etc., but that is not the part of the brain that runs the body. Someone can be in a coma and have no conscious thought whatsoever and still their body runs. What we utilize in our office is a technology that turns off alarms in the subconscious mind and allows the body to return to exceptional health. Unlike traditional healthcare, which tries to take over the management of your body, we advocate that the body can run itself each and every time the alarms are turned off and the body is given the proper environment to heal.
In short, our office specializes in a highly advanced system of care that gently turns off alarms in the brain, allowing the body to return to optimal health and wellness.

What is Chiropractic in General?
Chiropractic is a profession within the health care field that deals with the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the human body. A doctor of chiropractic will diagnose, treat and prevent injuries and disorders of the nerves, muscles and bones.
While a chiropractor will diagnose and treat these resultant injuries and disorders, the main objective of the chiropractor is the removal of nerve interference allowing the body to heal itself without invasive procedures and/or drugs. As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at Exceptional Life Wellness receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patients’ condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created. Should a patient require treatment outside the scope of chiropractic care they are referred to the appropriate medical specialist in our area.
As the science of chiropractic has evolved so have the techniques used within its practice. Common treatment methods have grown to include nutritional counseling, orthotics, lifestyle modification / exercise programs and physical rehabilitation programs. While these adjunctive treatments are certainly beneficial, spinal and joint manipulation remains the primary and most effective mode of treatment by our clinic. Statistics reflect that nearly 95% of patients that seek chiropractic care in Bellevue do so as a result of musculoskeletal pain such as:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Extremity pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Strain/sprain injuries
Conditions caused by spinal dysfunction accounts for the remaining 5% of chiropractic patients. These conditions are those manifesting through the nervous system, such as:
- Constipation and other digestive dysfunctions, etc …
Chiropractic care is not a guaranteed miracle treatment. However, it is not uncommon for patients to report an improvement in the conditions listed above after receiving chiropractic treatment. The majority of people in Bellevue understand that chiropractic treatment is beneficial for back and neck pain, headaches and sprain/strain injuries. However, very few people including those in the medical community, truly understand the affect adjustments have on the central nervous system. In particular, the affect adjustments have on the autonomic nervous system and its sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
Chiropractic – Scientifically Explained
If you are looking for a scientific explanation of how chiropractor works this paragraph is for you. A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures, by reducing pain and increasing joint motion. Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules and surrounding myofascial tissues.
Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly effected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system). This is done through the effects the chiropractic adjustments have on the joint capsules, and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is space) through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body) in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).
That’s a lot to take in, but it is the explanation as to why some chiropractic patients report improvement in organic function, not only musculoskeletal benefits. To reiterate, this is not a claim that chiropractic adjustments treat systemic pathology, but does suggest that some who have systemic symptoms may see results from chiropractic care even without the presence of pain.
Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Those that have been dealing with chronic pain or have been injured are not the only individuals who should seek chiropractic care in Bellevue. The benefits of chiropractic care can be realized for many people with any variety of health conditions. Even those relatively “healthy” individuals with few, if any, health conditions can see the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care.
The impact of life’s daily grind adds up stressing the human body in far greater ways than you might realize. Regular chiropractic adjustments can restore and maintain balance within, allowing the innately intelligent human body to heal itself, leaving you better prepared to live life to its fullest. Regardless of one’s walk in life, anyone can benefit greatly from regular chiropractic care. Routine chiropractic treatments will help maintain the body at the high level of activity life calls for, allowing the body to self-heal through proper alignment. Your spinal column serves as a conduit through which the human brain sends messages through and out to the body’s nervous system. It is simple to see how protecting the integrity of this important structure, through regular visits to Exceptional Life Wellness is vital to the body’s optimal function and overall health.
The Education of a Chiropractor
Most patients don’t realize how much schooling chiropractors in Bellevue have to go though before they can start practicing? Chiropractors are held to some of the most intense educational requirements of any health profession. In fact their schooling requirements are very comparable to that of medical practitioners. After completing a heavy emphasis of basic sciences in and undergraduate program, potential chiropractors may be accepted into a five year chiropractic college. During that time they do extensive course work in the areas of:
- Public Health
- Chiropractic Philosophy and Practice
- Chiropractic Diagnosis
- Adjusting Methods
