We will be back in the office on Monday, May 4.
Welcome To Rudder Chiropractic
We offer a variety Chiropractic Care services. To the right, you will see a few.
In our office we utilize the latest technology to help your body heal and treat conditions in a conservative, effective, and non-surgical way. Our bodies are very responsive to light and utilizing the class 4 laser directly on the cells of the body we influence their function. Laser therapy makes it possible to concentrate and transfer a very high quantity of energy on a specific surface. This process translates into a reduction in healing time for the patient, who will see the benefits of laser therapy through a decrease in pain, inflammation, swelling, as well as in recovery time in general.
On site we have a massage therapist, Libby Barnett. She has been an LMT now since 2015 and is highly skilled at many soft tissue techniques to help treat conditions such as headaches, muscle tension, joint stiffness, limited mobility, ease muscle pain, and improve healing times.
On site at our office we have a Digital Radiography unit (DR X Ray system). Our system uses the lowest amount of radiation possible to detect what is going on beneath the surface of your body. X rays are painless, quick, and easy and allow the doctors to make the most accurate assessment and diagnosis of your condition.
In some conditions and when appropriate, we utilize interferential current to treat certain conditions. This form of therapy is effective in treating muscle spasms, strains, and sprains as well as decreasing pain.
Chiropractic care is focused on restoring optimal function to the nervous system and maintaining health and wellness so the body functions to its maximum potential at all times.
There is no part of your body that functions without influence of the nervous system. Every bodily function is controlled by nervous impulses traveling from your brain to every part of your body. Nerves also carry information from every part of your body back up to your brain. Everything that you see, smell, taste, touch, and hear travel through nerves to your brain. Nerves make muscles move bones which move joints. It is a nervous impulse that tells your heart to beat and circulate your blood, your digestive system to function and make use of the food we eat, your lungs to breath in fresh air, your reproductive system to function, and your glands and hormones to secrete and excrete properly. Everything we think of doing and things that we do without thinking are all governed by our nervous system. Having the nervous system function normally and optimally is the only way that the body can truly achieve and maintain health.
As Doctors of Chiropractic, our approach to health is through the spine because it houses and protects the spinal cord. The spinal cord can be thought of as the switchboard of the nervous system because everything going to the brain and from the brain passes through it. Nerve roots come off of the spinal cord and pass through openings in the vertebra (spine bones) and from there they go to muscles, bones, organs, or skin. Your spine is made up of 24 individually moving vertebra and 31 pairs of nerve roots. When one of these vertebra get “stuck” or out of position in relation to the vertebra below it (or above it) it can interfere with the information being sent along the nerves. The word that chiropractors use to describe a bone that is out of position or fixated and causing interference with the nerve is subluxation. Subluxations can disturb normal function throughout the body and can be the root cause of many conditions.
Dr. Tyler and Dr. Amy work to correct the subluxation (interference) and help restore normal function to the nervous system and the body. They have spent thousands of hours studying the body and perfecting their clinical techniques to care for the body without the use of drugs or surgery.
I was experiencing persistent low back pain for months that was keep me from work. After Dr. Edge’s care I can now stand and sit at my desk without pain maximizing my productivity again. Maintaining spinal health is now a goal of mine to keep my body functioning at optimal levels.
I came to Dr. Edge with a history of bulging discs and lower back pain that had been persistent for years. After trying many unsuccessful treatments for my condition, I made an appointment after a friend referred me to the office. After receiving care, I can now work, workout, and be a mom again without being hindered by lower back pain.
In 2012 I was told I needed a bilateral knee replacement. Under my doctor’s supervision I was prescribed opioid drugs and using marijuana on my own to control pain. I initially sought care because I thought I had a dislocated hip and knew there had to be another treatment option besides more drugs and medications. After 1 month of care with Dr. Tyler I was able to completely get off hydrocodone I had been on for 7 years, I was able to return to construction work, and get my life back.
I was experiencing daily back pain and had trouble with grinding my teeth at night. I had tried doctor after doctor and treatment after treatment with no success. I was referred to Dr. Amy by a family friend and as a direct result of care my back pain has lessened, I no longer take acid reflux medications, the curvature of my neck has returned to normal, and I can be a working mom and wife again!
I moved to Tennessee from Illinois with my husband and I came to Dr. Rudder suffering from neck pain that was ruining my life. I had been seeing a Chiropractor, but my adjustments did not seem to ever hold and my condition never seemed to improve. After beginning care with Dr. Amy, I no longer have any pain in my neck and I have my life back. My husband and I both now drive three hours just to get our spine checked.
