What will Network Spinal Analysis do for me?
NSA helps the person to use the energy within their spinal tension to fuel the healing process. Network care helps your internal cues to become so available that people more often act, think, feel, and respond in a more productive and healthier fashion. Through a specified plan of Network Adjustments or Entrainments, you will progress through a series of Levels of Care, which over a time will enable you to: better adapt to your environment and its stresses; make healthier life choices; develop a healthier spine and body; and live a more fulfilling and enriched life.
What is the focus of Network Care?
Through Network Care, we will assist your body to develop new and better strategies for effective living and greater healing. These strategies will help you:

• Establish the capacity of your nervous system to connect and release areas of tension, and impaired function

•Enhance your ability to generate automatic respirations and movements that help your spine and nervous system to dissipate tension, increase circulation and energy flow, and promote healing

•Develop an effective and trusting relationship with your spine, nervous system, body, and your healing process

• Monitor improvement in coordinated function of nerves, muscles, vertebra, and soft tissues that promotes a healthy spine and nervous system

• Assist your body in removing spinal interference to communication between your brain and the cells of your body, increasing your body’s ability to properly respond to its experiences, challenges, and needs

• Develop lifetime strategies for self-awareness and healing

• Assess the significant improvement in your health and quality of life through a very wide range of indicators

• Monitor your progress with periodic clinical re-evaluations performed by your chiropractor

What can I expect during a visit?
A “Network Adjustment” or “Entrainment” consists of a series of gentle touches that help enable the body to move away from defense and into growth and healing.  The contacts are made in areas along the spine where ease is already present, allowing the nervous system to spread that ease to areas that are under stress.
You will feel an increase in breath, and may notice the body moving as it begins to experience a “healing wave”.  Most people report a greater sense of peace and calm after an adjustment, and are generally very relaxed.
At periodic intervals, we will perform a re-evaluation, which is a longer visit, where we measure the progress you have made over time.  This will enable us to know what changes, if any, need to be made in your care.
What are these 'Healing Waves' you mention?

In Network Care, the brain may generate two waves that are associated with the dissipation of energy, enhanced vertebral motion, coordination of the spinal subsystems, and enhanced well-being.

1)    Respiratory Wave- This is characterized by a full and profound natural rhythmic breathing which begins at the base of the spine, progresses upward between the shoulder blades, around the shoulders and into the neck.  This wave gently rocks the vertebra, “melting” tension throughout the spine.

2)      Somatopsychic Wave- This is associated with muscular contraction which pulsates and organizes the spinal segments into a fluid, coordinated motion.

During a session, the chiropractor may position your spine to allow for an enhancement of full spinal involvement in these “healing waves.”’

What should I look for to measure my progress?
As you progress in care, the spine revitalizes, energizes and helps the body to self-correct distortions of alignment and posture.  Some things you are likely to notice in this process are:

  • More awareness of your body and breath
  • Differences in the way you carry your body
  • Differences in the way you walk
  • Improvement in pain and other physical complaints
  • An awareness of other lifestyle changes you may need to make to accelerate the healing process
Why are gentle contacts performed mostly on the neck and lower spine?
Gentle contacts have been shown to be most effective in assisting in the correction of mechanical tension and interference to the nervous system.  Contacts are made in areas where the chiropractor already perceives ease, reminding the nervous system that ease is its natural state.

Since the regions your Network practitioner is seeking to affect are not the regions of maximum tension, fixation, inflammation or pain, but rather regions often remote from them likely to generate these conditions, minimal force is required for correction.

The body’s own self-organizing intelligence responds to the specific touch to generate the change.  The neck and the sacrum are the major regions of attention in Network Care, since these are the regions where the spinal cord is directly attached to the vertebral column.

Where does pain fit into the picture?
Pain is an experience of awareness. Pain acts to alert the individual that the body-mind is being challenged in maintaining its status quo. It tells the body-mind that something has to shift or change, or greater awareness need be paid attention. This is a means of the body saying “Wake Up! Something here needs attention!”
Will this help my back and neck pain?
Usually, people find that many types of painful symptoms are improved through NSA care. It’s important to remember that everyone is unique and thus responds to any type of care in their own individual way. You could experience positive benefits within a few short visits or longer. We encourage you to experience NSA and see.
What does the care cost?
This is a very good question and a common concern for some people seeking care. We have several plans for care covering individuals and families. We consider it an investment in yourself and we take you and your family’s well-being very seriously. Our care is very affordable for people with or without insurance, especially considering the tremendous improvements in quality of life received associated with the care.
How long do I need to come for care?
That’s another individual question. During your initial report of findings during your first few visits and after our full evaluation of you and your health profile, will we determine a plan of care to most effectively assist you in reaching your health and wellness goals.
Is NSA good for children?
Absolutely! NSA is wonderful for the entire family, and we highly recommend that everyone be in care together. We have babies in care as well! Everyone can benefit from living in greater connection to themselves and the world.
I'm pregnant. Should I wait until after I have my baby to start?
NSA is perfect for the expecting mother both for its gentle application as well as its effective results and outcomes. For the first 4-5 months during pregnancy, NSA care is performed without variation. After 5 months, contacts are made while using body pillows and lying on your side. Pregnant women experience many great advantages under Network Care and many report smoother pregnancies and labors with care.
How do I get started with NSA care?
It’s as easy as calling our office at (303) 545-2529 and scheduling your initial visit. During that visit, you will have a complete consultation about any current or past health concerns as well as review your confidential health history. We will perform a complete spinal evaluation. We will also discuss how Network Care will be able to help you after we better understand what you are seeking from the care. The best way to know what Network does and how it can help is to experience it yourself. Give us a call– you’ll be glad you did!
