I remember as a kid asking my friend to “crack my back”.. You know.. When you would cross your arms over your chest ( who knows why?) and they would give you a bear hug from behind and bounce you up and down and you would hear a pop! As an adult, I would be scared of breaking or pulling something and being bedridden for a week. Even though as kids we didn’t know what the we were doing, we knew that something happened and we felt better. If you ever feel compelled to “ crack your back” give Dr. Pamela Norley a call with Acupuncture Chiropractic.
Dr. Pamela Norley is a Licensed Chiropractic Physician who has been treating patients since 1994. When I sat down to talk with her, as soon as she started talking about her practice her whole face lit up. I could tell that not only was she passionate about what she does but that she truly cares for her patients. She spends the time to get to know her patients and wants you to be successful in your treatment so you can improve your quality of life. Chiropractic treatment is based on the concept that restricted movement in the spine or other joints in the body may lead to pain and reduced function. Spinal adjustment (manipulation) is one form of therapy chiropractors use to treat restricted mobility. The goal is to restore proper joint motion and, as a result, improve function and decrease pain.
What differentiates Dr. Norley from other chiropractors is her wholistic approach. Not only will she recommend a chiropractic treatment plan, but will discuss nutrition and acupuncture to compliment your treatment so that you find continued success well beyond your time with her.
If your like me, when you think of Acupuncture you think of someone laying on their stomach with a million needles in their back. Dr. Norley’s years of skill allow you to experience acupuncture in a safe, relaxing and painless environment. Each sterilized, single use acupuncture ‘needle’ (or ‘wire’) is the thickness of a strand of hair and comes in its own protective tube. She expertly positions the tube and with a little pressure relieves symptoms and pain from a wide variety of conditions. The reason this practice works is it restores the proper blood flow within your body so your body can heal itself. Ultimately this is the end goal. Instead of treating symptoms with medication, give your body the power to heal itself. She has had much success and many stories are posted on her website. A snippet from one:
While we decided to undergo all the various forms of treatment you can administer, I wasn’t confident they would work. Being a bit leery, I didn’t expect much. However, just this week the pain has resolved. My health has vastly improved by your persistence in trying each therapy until I plateaued, then a new approach was tried for even more improvement.
Unfortunately Dr Norley usually sees patients when they have exhausted all the resources of traditional medicine and aren’t seeing results. If you are experiencing pain, discomfort, numbness or any other symptom listed here, Dr Norley can help you find relief.
As a new patient, you will undergo a complete physical examination to determine the exact nature of your problem. The results of your examination will allow us to make recommendations regarding the best type of treatment needed for the quickest possible response. Contact her to set up a free consultation:
