Chiropractic is a medical system that focuses on correcting the cause of the symptom not the symptom itself.
The central nervous system controls your body’s power to live and to function; it also powers the body to heal. Your spine is the conduit through which that energy flows from the brain, to the spinal cord, to each spinal nerve, and then out to your extremities. Chiropractic is designed to find nerve interference associated with spinal dysfunction known as a “subluxation” and correct it.
Auto Injury Rehabilitation
Car accidents happen according to the law of averages. The force generated even at low speeds can cause permanent damage to your spine.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained from a motor vehicle collision. It is often associated with headaches, stiffness, spasm, sprained ligaments, strained muscles, blurred vision, tinnitus, and more. The low back does not whip like the neck per se, but is design to support an axial load, in the event of a car accident the shearing force can cause long term damage that leads to arthritis and degenerative disc disease. You have 2 years in the state of Arizona to claim injury from an accident. We offer a free assessment and will help navigate your journey back to health.
Mothers are endowed with a super power to bring to life a child. It is a miraculous thing.
While my wife was pregnant she would often remind me that she was “running a 5k” everyday as her body worked to create another human. It is exhausting. As you advance through the pregnancy you will experience weight gain, joint laxity, and often times back pain. Getting a routine chiropractic adjustment while pregnant is safe and effective, and helps maintain optimal function throughout the process.
Massage is a key component to what we provide.
Our therapists are trained to treat the source of pain from a muscular perspective. Muscles anchor to bone to move our joints and to maintain our posture. When you have joint dysfunction you will likely suffer from muscular dysfunction as well. By treating both conditions together we see best results.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation and Performance
Sports make up a big part of our culture. Chiropractors are part of most high school, college, and professional medical teams.
The value we bring in restoring joint function and attaining full range of motion is imperative in the sports world. It is not rare to see athletes get adjusted on the sidelines during a game although most are treated consistently to maintain a high level of performance and to prevent serious injury.
Kids are phenomenal! They show us how capable our bodies are of healing on their own, however sometimes they need a little help.
Adjustments work wonders for them. Alignment and joint function are crucial to their growth and development. As children learn to walk, run, climb, and play they suffer injuries. They do not always know how to articulate what they are feeling or why they are in pain. Chiropractors can assess and diagnose these issues to ensure that your children live happy and healthy lives.
Christina is our massage therapist. She has been working with Dr. Elrey since December of 2015 and has been licensed since 2002. She graduated from the Masters Massage Program at the Southwest Institute for the Healing Arts with a focus on Therapeutic Touch and Deep Tissue/Structural Work. Her own chronic pain led her into pursuing a profession as a massage therapist.
A doctor recommended her to look into the career as it allows her to move throughout her day. It was through this that she learned the true importance of motion in her life to maintain health. It was during this period of time that she also discovered the many benefits of chiropractic care. Though she has worked in many settings such as resort spas and gyms, she found working in conjunction with a chiropractor to be her favorite and most rewarding setting. It allows her to truly customize her sessions for each client she sees.
Maddison manages the day to day operations at Nexus Rehab and Spine. Her optimism fuels her keen ability to problem solve, establish processes and make sure things run as smoothly as possible. She was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. She moved to Michigan her senior year and came back a few years ago. She has been working in the medical field since 2014 and has grown a profound love for different types of care that is able to be provided to people but she has grown very fond of Chiropractic since she started working with Doctor Elrey in 2016.
Before working with Doctor Elrey she had little knowledge about how beneficial getting adjusted is. In the first couple of months of working with Doctor Elrey she started to pay more attention to her posture, how she did certain exercises, lifted things, and her health in general because she was learning about how the alignment of the spine can have such a great role on vital organs and she wanted to maintain a healthy life. She has since grown very passionate about natural medicine and now wants to pursue her masters in business to own a Chiropractic office herself one day. When she is not at work she enjoys going to the gym, traveling, babysitting, and spending time with her family/friends.
