There seems to be lots of confusion out there regarding that funny word “Wellness.” Most people have the idea that it refers to “feeling Well.” Some people think that wellness is getting up every morning feeling good or experiencing little or no pain. In other words, when you feel well you are in fact healthy. Correct? Wrong! Wellness is not related to feeling well, it is related to how your body adapts to the everyday stresses of your life and your own internal workings. If it can adapt and handle everything that is going on inside you with nothing interfering with that process, then you are in fact healthy. You are well.
As chiropractors, our mission is to have your body function on that level. Being well is when your body is working at 100%. Everything is functioning, every, cell, every organ, and every nerve is firing- you are alive and your body is working exactly like it should. This is accomplished by eliminating any interference to that function. If any vertebra in your spine is subluxated, it will literally short circuit a part of your nervous system. You are not well. Wellness care is designed to have a person experience the very best they can be and maintain that level of health. How does that sound for your health and what you expect from yourself. Sounds great to us, and realize that we are just getting started, that is what we expect from everyone and we will help get you there!
It just makes sense!

Kids and Chiropractic
Why are we so adamant about seeing kids? Because we don’t want them to grow up with the same problems as you.
Most of the problems we see in adults begin in childhood, even from the process of birth which can be very traumatic. Add to that the thousands of times your child will fall on their behinds, tumble off a bike or from the monkey bars, or knock themselves around while playing with their friends and they have got spinal trauma written all over them.
Is your child having frequent ear infections, colds, trouble breathing, sinus infections, allergies, difficulty concentrating, wetting the bed, growing pains, or any one of a hundred so-called “normal” childhood illnesses? If so, then we need to check them! Not because chiropractic is a treatment for these conditions, but because these symptoms can be the result of interference with the nerves that control certain glands and organs.
We have adjusted babies straight from the hospital. We have even adjusted babies in the hospital. No age is too young to get their first check up. Plus, chiropractic for infants and toddlers is safe and very gentle. They often sleep right through it.
If your children have never been checked, please make an appointment with us to do so as soon as possible.

How We Can Help You
Let’s talk about you for a moment, and we need you to really get this: YOUR health is based on 4 important principles and everything we do in our practice is based on these priciples:
1. Your body is a self-healing organism
It is designed to heal itself! Did you know that? For example, you get a brand new liver every month. All the cells in your liver die and are replaced with brand new cells every 24 days! Amazing!
Every four months all of your red blood cells are wiped out and your body creates a completely new set. Incredible!
You get a completely new stomach lining every 5 days.
Your taste buds are replaced every 11 days.
At night when you go home and take off your clothes before bed, thousands of dead skin cells float to the floor and then you vacuum yourself up the next morning! Did you know that 98% of the dust in your house is YOU? We often have fun with our patients because we tell them that they are very dusty people!
The reason we are telling you this is to emphasize that your body is in a constant state of change and repair. And in order to do this, it follows a very exact program. So we need to know why you are not following your program. Your body is not doing what it is programmed and designed to do. And that is absolutely not OK. Think about this for a moment: your body is not doing what it is supposed to be doing. Why is that?
2. Your Nervous System is the 'thing' that runs this program
It is like a computer central command center that runs you. As long as your nervous system is able to communicate effectively with every organ, tissue, cell, nook and cranny of you, you should have the very best health you have ever had in your life. We call this normal.
3. If something interferes with the function of your nervous system
so that it is not able to control your body they way it should, your body will not be able do what it is designed and programmed to do - it will do its own thing, and here is where all your problems come from.
4. Our job as a chiropractor is to restore law and order!
We are the new Sheriff in town! We want your body to function the way it was designed and programmed. ...And we want you to be healthy for a lifetime. That's it. It's simple.

organ in your body is connected with the one under your hat.”
since my daughter was 1 year old she has been treated for respiratory ailments…No
one told me this could be related to a car accident we were in when she was 1
year old…No one except Dr. Matt, that is. After years of running to “sick
appointments” and prescriptions our daughter, now 5 years old, spends afternoons
running and playing with her friends. She may not look different on the outside,
but she is very much improved on the inside. After 2 months of chiropractic care,
our daughter is off her inhaler and allergy medicine, and best of all, she is
sleeping without discomfort.”
could barely walk because of back pain and neck pain. I was severely depressed
and had no self esteem…I now feel 15 years younger. I no longer take prescription
drugs nor do I have…depression. I have no more pain in my back and very
little pain in my neck. I saw Dr. Matt daily for many weeks, now I go 3 days a
week. I feel like he gave me a second chance at life…”
“Dear Dr. Matt,
I want to thank you for helping
me to get my life back. When I came to you about a year and a half ago I was that
old woman. Within a week, I was no longer taking four pills every four hours for
pain, and I was able to move about more freely and I could go back to work. This
is job that I love, driving a school bus.
You worked with me for
a couple of months and I was no longer afraid to move in any direction. I am a
very active person, who loves doing active things with kids. I love doing parades
and teaching bus safety. I love gardening and jumping in leaves, and making snowmen.
AND, I love best of all doing these things with PZAZZ. This means I have to be
able to walk, run, jump, bend, lift, stretch, and thank YOU very much I can do
all this and more.

The list does not stop here. I stayed on for maintenance
as you advise your patients to do. I had bad allergies and you worked on those.
I now have very few allergy attacks and they are mild. I no longer take any allergy
medication. The kids on the bus can now wear perfumes and colognes and we get
to try new “smells”. I can come in with aches and pains, be treated
and get on with my life. To me this is a Biggie, because very soon I will celebrate
my 59th birthday. AND I FEEL GREAT!

How We are Different
You have most likely been taught to think that chiropractic is a kind of treatment for back and neck pain, etc. It’s true; we do see patients suffering with a variety of these kinds of problems. More importantly is knowing that chiropractic is much more than the simple relief of pain. You may be amazed to learn that most problems that surface in the adult years actually start because the birth process is so traumatic. How many of you have been through this!?
That is the reason we place so much emphasis on children and their growth and development. Your child's spine is his or her lifeline. Running through it is the spinal cord carrying billions of messages which make the body function correctly. It is like having your own internal Internet! It is vital to make certain that this "information highway" has no obstacles so that all messages sent by the brain get where they are going. If there is an obstruction in this highway, then the body starts to malfunction. This can be a serious threat to life and health.
Chiropractors call these obstructions “Vertebral Subluxations”- misalignments of some of the spinal vertebrae (spinal bones).
You need to remember that the body is a self-healing organism - it is designed to heal itself. This means that it has the ability to heal and recover, no matter what the condition - as long as that process is not interfered with. For example, you get a brand new liver every month or so. Yes, liver cells die and are replaced by new ones. Your red blood cells die every four months and are replaced by new cells - even your skeleton changes approximately every seven years. In other words, your body is designed to heal, and it follows a very exact program to be able to do this.
That program is controlled by your nervous system. As long as your nervous system is able to effectively communicate with every tissue, cell, organ, and nook and cranny of your body, you should have the very best health possible. If your nervous system is not able to communicate with your cells, tissues, etc., your body will not have the ability to do what it is designed to do. We call this "malfunction." It can be very serious. Our mission is to eliminate this communication breakdown and restore law and order!
It's that simple!

My mission is to help as many people in my lifetime as I can… especially children.
23 years ago, Dr. Matt attended Virginia Tech with a B. S. in Biology with a clear cut mission- to become a chiropractor. He grew up in Springfield, Virginia and had a cousin who was a chiropractor in New Jersey. At holiday family gatherings, everyone would line up in ther living room ro receive an adjustment on Dr. Rob’s portable table.
“I can clearly remember my first adjustment. I was 12 years old and it changed my life because it set the course of my life’s work. The adjustment didn’t hurt; it actually felt real good! I knew right away that I wanted to be a chiropractor. My cousin would tell me stories of the numerous people he had helped through chiropractic.”
Dr. Matt graduated from Virginia Tech in 1994 and was accepted to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in October. Palmer College was founded in 1895 by Dr. DD Palmer and is the first school for chiropractic study, producing the finest chiropractors in the world. He graduated in 1998 and moved to St. Augustine, Florida where he worked at Hartlry Chiropractic.
In January, 1999, Dr. Matt and his wife, Mandy, returned to their home state of Virginia and opened their practice in Leesburg. They have four children, Maddie, Suzie, Nicole, and Aaron, who have been getting adjusted since they were born. They have been healthy and active children all their lives. It truly is a family business.
Dr. Matt loves snowboarding, motorcycles (or anything with an engine), bike riding, the mountains, football, lacrosse, soccer, in other words, most sports. He enjoys reading, movies, and eating good food.
Dr. Matt wants people to know that adjustments are not just for adults but for the entire family, no matter how old! Health is not being pain free. Health is the ability of the body to adapt to chemical, physical, and emotional stressors. Through chiropractic adjustments, your body will restore health to your entire body and continue to maintain health.

What to Expect
power that created you heals you.”
What is a subluxation?
A: A subluxation is the condition of a vertebra
that has lost its proper alignment with the vertebra above or the one below which
puts pressure on the nerves, interfering with the body’s ability to heal
Q: What happens at my first visit?
you arrive at the office you will fill out some paperwork, we will copy your license
and insurance card. In one of the rooms, Dr. Matt will do a consultation, a question
and answer discussion to learn about your past health history and current health
concerns. Dr. Matt will perform a detailed chiropractic analysis to find nerve
pressure and spinal subluxations. Based on the examination, Dr. Matt or Melanie
will take the necessary x-rays. If x-rays are necessary it is most likely we will
schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss the findings and create a mutual plan
of action. This may vary according to the individual situation.
Can I be adjusted at the first visit?
A: That is between you, the
patient, and Dr. Matt. It depends on your past history, what he may find during
the examination and other factors that you discuss with the Doctor.
Q: What is a chiropractic adjustment?
A: It is a specific,
applied force using hands only to one or more vertebra or several to remove nerve
interference to allow the body to heal.
Q: Do I have to have
A: If you are pregnant, no. If the patient is a child,
usually not. Otherwise, it is a decision for your doctor to make as to what is
best for you.
Q: Once I start seeing a chiropractor, can I stop?
A: There is an old wive's tale that is still around that says
this, but the fact is that once you learn and feel what you body can feel like,
you probably won't accept not feeling great anymore. Just like the dentist whom
you visit twice a year, chiropractic patients usually continue some sort of regular
visits as a preventative measure and to maintain optimum health and energy. A
healthy body will be the most effective way to fight any virus or disease. Once
we have addressed your immediate concern, the frequency of your adjustments will
be dictated by how much you value your heath.
