Contract. Relax. This is the basic mechanism of muscular action. Problems develop when there's too much of one or the other. In most cases, too much contraction is the culprit.
Persistent muscular contraction in the lower back or neck, for example, leads to a cascade of troublesome effects. Toxic metabolic end-products - including lactic acid - accumulate. These small molecules irritate local nerve endings and cause ongoing pain. Muscle spasm results which narrows local blood vessels. Too little blood reaching the area deprives tissues of oxygen and other important nutrients. Cellular damage results with further build-up of noxious metabolites.
Chiropractic treatment encourages a return to normal sinusoidal balance by restoring normal spinal alignment. Spasmodic muscles are enabled to relax. Blood vessels can now supply appropriate amounts of oxygen and nutrients. Metabolic waste is removed. Vitality is restored and pain resolves. Spinal muscles and spinal joints return to operating in a natural ebb-and-flow rhythm.

I started seeing Dr. Ang when she was associated with the Wellness Connection in Shawnee Mission, Ks. I had a couple of unpleasant experiences with other chiropractors, but a coworker gave Dr. Ang a glowing review so I decided to give her a try. I have been seeing her for about six years and she has helped me through many health related problems. She has helped me to understand so many things about how the body works and heals itself and how we can actually spare ourselves from many health problems. How refreshing--a doctor who keeps you from being sick! I truly believe my good health is a result of listening to her advice (though it may take awhile to get it through my head) and regular chiropractic visits. She is a very caring and concerned individual, not only with physical care, but also her patients emotional and mental well being. I now have my entire family receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Ang. We couldn't get along without her!
