“It is most necessary to know the nature of the spine. One or more vertebrae may or may not go out of place very much and if they do, they are likely to produce serious complications and even death, if not properly adjusted. Many diseases are related to the spine.” Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine


shutterstock_158325389Welcome to Asheville Chiropractic & Wellness Center. More than a third of the US population has used or will use the services of a Chiropractic Physician; making the discipline of chiropractic the most commonly used complementary/alternative health therapy in the United States, according to the CDC. Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. Conditions that are commonly seen at a Chiropractic Physician’s office include neck pain, shoulder pain, back or hip pain, a herniated disc, sciatica, and auto injuries. Advanced training and nutritional care can also help people with many other conditions such as digestive issues, headaches, hormonal imbalances, and stress related mental/emotional challenges. Very often a spinal nerve can become irritated by repetitive motion or overuse, as well as sitting at a desk for prolonged periods of time. Even birth trauma can cause the spine to become misaligned and create nerve interference.

Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing creation of God and are regulated by your nervous system. In a healthy spine, the vertebra, which are individual bone segments, are intricately “stacked” and aligned so that the various spinal nerves can carry information to your brain and interact with every cell and tissue in your body. Improper motion and position of the vertebra can irritate and negatively affect nerve function, which can in turn affect tissues, muscles, joints, organs, and glands. Chiropractic care locates these areas of stress to spinal nerves and helps reduce or eliminate their effects through the use of spinal adjustments. At the moment you receive a chiropractic adjustment thousands of body functions are affected. Health returns with restored nervous system control of your body. Therein is the essence of chiropractic: to remove that which interferes with your body’s natural ability to heal itself and support your tissues during this restoration process. You are wonderfully and fearfully made to heal yourself when the three stressors of life (physical, mental, chemical) are reduced or eliminated.

Dr. Brian Gualano and his staff are committed to restoring you to a pain free quality of life and optimizing your performance using chiropractic principles, nutrition, and lifestyle management. He takes a holistic approach to treatment beginning with a thorough assessment of your current health status.

Very often pain is caused by a misaligned vertebra and an irritated spinal nerve. Simple repetition or overuse, an auto accident, sitting at a desk for prolonged periods and even birth trauma can cause the spine to become misaligned. There also could be several physical, chemical, emotional and mental factors involved.

“Displacement of any part of the skeletal frame may press against nerves, which are the channels of communication, intensifying or decreasing their carrying capacity, creating either too much or not enough functioning, an aberration known as disease. The nature of the affection depends upon the shape of the bone, the amount of pressure, age of patient, character of nerves impinged upon and the individual makeup.” Dr. D.D. Palmer, the Founder of Chiropractic-1895
