Correcting the Spine
A misaligned spine can occur from physical, chemical, and emotional stresses, and can cause symptoms such as aches and pains, dizziness, headaches, brain fog, poor posture, a weakened immune system, and disease. Prolonged misalignment can damage the spinal cord and the spinal nerves which exit the spine, affecting virtually every system of the body.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
– Thomas A. Edison
Our Chiropractic Services
Our primary goal is to restore proper spinal alignment allowing your body to heal from past and present injuries. We use several modalities, listed below, to accomplish this goal.
Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC)
The purpose of ABC is to return a person’s spine to an upright and balanced position with the head over the shoulders and the shoulders over the pelvis. This is the most efficient position, mechanically, for the body to be in. After years of misalignment, the body can actually twist into a locked position because it has lost the ability to maintain a neutral and balanced position. This twisting can put tremendous stress on the bones, joints, and muscles of the body causing dysfunction, pain, and immobility. Moreover, this twisting can create tension on the brain stem, spinal cord, and spinal nerves which will ultimately affect every function of the body. With correct alignment and posture, the nervous system is able to function as it was originally designed free from interference. Correct alignment and posture is also essential for proper breathing and pain free movement.
Functional Neurology is used to differentiate specific areas in the brain and nervous system that are functionally deficient. Areas that are functionally deficient may not show any pathology or physical defect that could be seen on an X-ray or MRI, but still are not functioning properly which can cause many neurological symptoms. By applying specific therapies, deficient areas of the brain and nervous system can be normalized.
Auriculotherapy is a procedure that utilizes the stimulation of the auricle, or external part of the ear, to aid in the alleviation of health conditions throughout the body. Through a combination of classical Chinese medicine and recent research, auriculotherapy has been shown to help the body break addictive cycles, minimize pain, and decrease stress and anxiety by releasing specific neurotransmitters that help ‘recalibrate’ brain and nervous system function.

Most people are unaware that chiropractic is for more than just back pain. Adjusting upper and lower extremities is a great alternative to surgeries and can improve joint function and stability. If a joint has become locked-up or injured, adjustments to the area can reduce pain, improve motion, relax muscles, and promote healing. Chiropractors can adjust wrists, elbows, fingers, shoulders, knees, ankles, and ribs.
Pre and Post-Natal
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can establish and maintain pelvic balance during pregnancy. Adjustments are designed to correct pelvic misalignments, which can increase the room available for the developing baby. Adjustments can also allow the baby to get into the best possible position for a natural delivery. Chiropractic is also safe for babies and children, allowing them to reach and maintain optimal health and wellness.

Dr. Blossom Lee
Dr. Blossom Lee grew up in South Korea and attended York University in Toronto, Canada as a biology major. While in college, she participated in a missions trip to Colombia, during which God revealed to her that her “hands will be used as a healer.” From that moment, she decided to focus her studies on a health profession in which her hands could be used to heal people. After graduating from York University, Dr. Blossom attended New York Chiropractic College, where she met and married her husband. She graduated in 2017 as a Doctor of Chiropractic, and earned her Masters of Science in Applied Clinical Nutrition in 2018.
Dr. Charney Slater
Dr. Charney Slater became a chiropractor after experiencing a severe autoimmune disorder of the thyroid known as Grave’s Disease. At that time, he had a racing heartbeat, a swollen neck, fatigue, and extreme digestive distress. He lost 25 pounds in 10 days. His medical doctor sent him to a chiropractor, and he noticed that the swelling in his neck would decrease after each treatment. He also felt much more calm. When he experienced his recovery after chiropractic treatment and nutritional intervention, he was motivated to learn more about his own health issues, and he decided to go to chiropractic school.

“When I first came to Dr. Gindhart I spent almost all of my time outside of work in bed on a heating pad. Through his gentle chiropractic care, I feel like a new person! I lost weight and walk regularly. I also enjoy having time to spend with my family and friends that I wasn’t able to do prior to regular adjustments. I’m so grateful to Dr. Gindhart for giving me my life back!”
