Our Chiropractic Style

Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles, and the connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body.  All of the joints in your body are part of this musculoskeletal system. Its optimal function is necessary for overall good health.  Ask Dr. Quartell for more information about a care program that may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice or other conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current condition and lifestyle.

Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy that concerns itself with the relationship between the nervous system, and the function (health) of the body.

The Art

After a thorough examination and review of your health history, Dr. Quartell will recommend a specific care program. If yours is a chiropractic case, this will include specific spinal adjustments.

The words “chiropractic adjustment” describe using a carefully directed, and controlled pressure to restore spinal bones to a more normal position of motion. When spinal function is improved, nervous system function (health) can improve too.

After 4 years of training, and over 10 years of practice, Dr. Quartell has become an expert at using the right amount of force in the right direction. The chiropractic adjustment is truly an art.

The Philosophy

Dr. Quartell will focus on reducing or removing any interference to your own inborn healing abilities.

The Science

Since it’s beginning, chiropractic has been based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is more vulnerable, covered by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal motion or position, they can irritate the nervous system. This disrupts the function of the tissues or organs the nerves control, and is called the Vertebral Subluxation Complex or Subluxation Syndrome.

“Chiropractors recognize that there is an inborn innate ability of the body that allows it to heal itself when there is no interference.”


Instead of covering up your symptoms with drugs, Dr. Quartell looks to correct the underlying cause or causes of your problem.

Your Nervous System controls Everything.

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of virtually every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of your body
