What is Chiropractic?
Following are words and their definitions relating to chiropractic as defined in "The Footsteps of Dr. G" by John Cox, D.C...
"Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art of things natural; a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column by hand only, for the correction of the cause of dis-ease."
"Dis-ease: not having ease; it is the condition of matter when it does not have ease, in Chiropractic, ease is the entity , and dis-ease is the lack of it."
"vertebral subluxtion: condition of a vertebra that has lost its proper juxtaposition with the one above or the one below, or both, to an extent less than a luxation, which impinges nerves and interferes with the transmission of mental impulses."
Defined by B.J. Palmer in "The Science of Chiropractic" chiropractor is defined as "one who knows the science, art and philosophy of Chiropractic and how to adjust subluxated vertebrae by placing in apposition the articular processes of the vertebral column".
Meeting patient's expectations
Though often times considered "back doctors" chiropractors actually deal with the nervous system via the vertebral column. Chiropractors locate subluxations and adjust them so that your nervous system will function as optimally as possible. Being the fact that your nervous system controls every function/process in your body it is essential to have specific chiropractic care. Subluxations are caused by trauma (micro and macro), stress, and toxins. Everyday we put ourselves at risk for getting a subluxation whether it is by taking a fall, getting into a car accident, worrying about bills or a loved one, or breathing in unavoidable toxins through our air (just to name a few). Let chiropractic restore your nervous system so your body can resist the daily traumas, stresses, and toxins! It's time to start living life fully, let chiropractic help!
Each new patient is required to fill out a History Form. Once the forms are filled out we will go over the history, do an examination using the Gonstead Method and then take x-rays if necessary (for mobile chiropractic x-rays will be referred out if deemed necessary) . Based on our findings I will adjust your specific subluxation(s) and suggest home care such as dietary changes, exercises/stretches, and postural/biomechanical changes that will help promote healing and stabilization in your back.

NUTRITION & HEALTH
"If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." - Thomas Jefferson
In conjunction with treating dis-ease through chiropractic care I also have a great passion to help people with chronic and terminal illnesses, especially cancer. I set up practice in Kalispell in mid-December of 2011, but two months later I moved back home to care for my dearly beloved mother who fought a courageous battle against a very aggressive cancer. As my mom’s main caregiver I experienced the ins and outs of both alternative and medical care. After losing my mom in August of 2012, I gained a greater passion to educate and support people who struggle against cancer so that they can live a better quality life. After having firsthand experience in caring for my mother and having done extensive research, I desire to carry on my mom's legacy of fighting for health. I returned to Kalispell in October of 2012 to restart my practice. I am now fully mobile serving rural communities.

About Montana's Mobile Chiropractor
I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in 2010 with a Doctorate in Chiropractic after earning a degree in Nutritional Science from California Polytechnic State University of San Luis Obispo. During chiropractic college I was vice-president and president of the Gonstead club. I became dedicated to the Gonstead method during my second trimester of school when I was treated by an intern doing the technique. Once I experienced the difference, I never got adjusted any other way! I have a strong passion for helping people find true health through chiropractic and nutrition. I have spent much time studying natural nutritional remedies and nutrition related to chronic illnesses and cancers. I have been called a "Jackie" of all trades due to my ability to do organic farming, living off the land, plumbing, fencing, racing in triathlons, etc. I know the pains we can put ourselves through with hard labor and activity, and it is my goal to help you get your body back to optimal function and health!
Dr. Sara's Mission Statement
As a chiropractor I do not diagnose nor treat disease, instead I use the Gonstead Method to specifically locate the subluxation (the bone out of place causing nerve interference) and adjust it. By specifically locating and adjusting the subluxation your nervous system can function as optimally as possible which allows your body to help heal itself. Though most important, your bodies ability to heal itself is not only done through chiropractic but also proper nutrition, sleep, exercise, and spiritual/emotional well-being. With my nutritional background and first hand experience in caring for my mom, who battled cancer using mainly alternative treatments, it is my goal to help people prevent against and overcome chronic illnesses and degenerative dis-eases through chiropractic, nutrition, and life-style changes. I believe that you have the choice to make your own decisions regarding your health. I am here to serve, support, and help you along the way!
**Note Dr. Sara prefers to work by appointment so that people are not waiting for extended periods of time. Please be courteous, if you have made an appointment and are unable to make it for whatever reason and call ahead of time so that the schedule can be adjusted accordingly. Repetitive missed appointments will result in being charged for a "no show" as they are very costly in a mobile unit.**
