Your spine and nervous system run your body. If there is interference in that system, your body will not work as designed. In time, that interference will lead to breakdowns and result in unwanted symptoms. Chiropractors check and adjust the spine. When we evaluate, we're assessing the severity of the misalignments in the back and neck. If they exist, we start a correction process.
Through that corrective process, the spine begins to heal and becomes more mobile. Communication in the nervous system becomes more functional. As a result of this improved function, the symptoms you came in with begin to disappear. We care for people of all ages with various uncomfortable symptoms. From babies suffering from feeding problems to athletes enduring sports injuries, we are here to help.

Our family has been going to Dr. Joel and the Cafe of Life for many years. We started going to the Cafe of Life to help ease our sons constipation (which we had no clue chiropractics would help with this until we were referred by a friend) and now our whole family goes to get adjusted regularly.
The team at Cafe of Life are absolutely fantastic! They have it all, a positive attitude, knowledgeable staff, flexibility. Thank you for everything, I really feel like there has been significant progress since my first visit and I would highly recommend Cafe of Life to all of my friends.

These include structural changes, hormonal fluctuations, weight gain, shifts in the balance of the weight-bearing joints, and emotional disruptions. We can make that experience as pleasant as possible for you and your developing baby.

Pediatric chiropractic is a gentle chiropractic adjustment explicitly designed for the unique needs of newborns, babies, and children. The nervous system controls all functions in the body. That means that it's crucial for children as young as a day old to get off to a great start in life by optimizing that function. Research has shown that 80% of all normal births include some damage to the upper neck of the baby. Therefore, kids need to have a spinal checkup as soon as possible.
As children pass through the developmental stages of growth, they become prone to various unwanted symptoms. Chiropractic care has demonstrated tremendous success in helping children. Our care is tailored to the size of the patient. The smaller the patient, the gentler the adjustment. For instance, when caring for newborns and babies, the force of the spinal correction is like the mild pressure used to check a tomato's ripeness. It would be similar to the touch of a fingertip on an eyeball.

Dr. Joel has had firsthand experience in knowing what chiropractic care can accomplish. "When I was in my teens, I was diagnosed with what is now known as ADHD. I was aggressive and out of control. My parents took me to see a chiropractor. Within months, I went from a straight-C student to a straight-A student. I could pay attention; I could sit still. I could even read a book, which I'd never been able to do before!"
Dr. Joel received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas. One of his most emotional career success stories occurred on the day his second child was born. His wife had to endure long labour, and when his son was delivered, he wasn't breathing. "The doctors rushed my baby into a back room, and I hurriedly followed them. They told me I couldn't enter the room, but I paid no attention. Helplessly I watched as they tried to revive my son. Nothing was working.
I knew that the trauma of the birth process itself could create misalignments in an infant's neck. So, I did what I knew had to be done. I proceeded to adjust the upper cervical area of my newborn son. He began to breathe, to revive." At that moment, Dr. Joel knew, without a doubt, that chiropractic care was life-changing for everyone. No matter where you are on the spectrum of health, chiropractic care can help you make a U-turn towards better health and function.
