Dr. John Ashcraft first discovered chiropractic following a wrestling injury at age 12. His parents took him to the local Chiropractor in the upstate NY town where he was raised. On the way home from his miraculous first visit, his father asked him how he felt and his reply was “I’m going to be a Chiropractor!” After a series of treatments, not only did he feel better from his injury, but he no longer experienced asthma or allergies. He chased his passion and loves his profession more now than he did when he started practicing 12 years ago.
Dr. A earned an exceptional upstate NY education, receiving his degree from the State University of New York at Oswego, with a major in Biology and minor in Health Sciences. He then graduated Magna Cum Laude near the top of his class at New York Chiropractic College, where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree as a member of the Phi Chi Omega honor society. He is currently the only active member in North Carolina in the American Academy of Spine Physicians, an elite group of Chiropractic Physicians and Neurosurgeons who work cooperatively to treat neurological conditions.
The pathway to good health is regulated by the nervous system. The central nervous system comprised of the brain and spinal cord are so vital that nature provided armor for them. The skull protect the brain and the spine houses and protects the spinal cord, through which nerve fibers pass from the brain to the rest of the body. Every organ, tissue, and cell is controlled by nerve impulses traveling from the brain to all parts of the body. Nerves transmit sensations to the brain; including sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. The nervous system controls all other systems of the body including the respiratory, circulatory, glandular, digestive, eliminative, and reproductive systems. Nerves help maintain balance and regulate body temperature. Nerves make movement possible.
The spinal cord is the switchboard through which the nerve impulses travel. The nerves leave the spinal cord through openings between the moveable vertebrae. Interference or imbalance can interfere with the normal functioning of these nerves, leading to neurospinal dysfunction. This interference or imbalance is called “subluxation” and is caused by physical, chemical or emational stress; wreaking havoc on your health. If left uncorrected, they usually persist and worsen, affecting your musculoskeletal system and organs.
Following a thorough consultation, chiropractic examination, nerve scan and x-rays we will determine the diagnisis. If we determine we can help through specific adjustments of the nervous system, we begin care to free it from interference, allowing your body to heal and reach optimal health naturally.
