We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Anna Batten-Lange has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
The Chiropractic Adjustment is a form of a safe physical manipulation that is unique to the chiropractic profession.
Although practitioners from other health care fields can perform “manipulations,” only chiropractors are trained and licensed to locate, analyze and correct the vertebral subluxation and its components.
What is a Vertebral Subluxation and why should you care? Well the definition as adopted by the American Association of Chiropractic Colleges reads as follows:
“Subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.”
What does that mean for the average person? It means – in a very watered down definition – that if the joints of the spine become misaligned, this misalignment can interfere with how the brain communicates with the body via the spinal cord and nerves, which leads to malfunction of normal body systems and/or processes. Which in turn, causes poor health.
The method of application of the chiropractic adjustment can vary widely from chiropractor to chiropractor, however, the intent of the adjustment remains the same.
The intent is to affect the neurophysiology of a vertebral motion segment and the associated tissues.
In other words:
The adjustment is designed to help restore normal joint and nerve function in a subluxated segment of the spine.
This is important because when a joint or vertebral segment becomes “subluxated” the joint loses proper motion and hence, proper function. When this happens, the end result is a negative impact on your health.
Dr. Anna Batten-Lange is skilled and experienced in a variety of techniques ranging from the traditional high velocity, low amplitude methods (most commonly associated with chiropractic) to extremely light force and more neurologically based adjustments performed either by hand or by the implementation of highly specialized instruments. This can range form hand manipulation, drop table, toggle, decompression, activator or arthrostim instruments. This wide range of skill sets allows nearly all patients who seek her out, to find just the right type of adjustments for them!
At Crawfordville Chiropractic Clinic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health. Let us show you how to build your core spinal musculoskeletal system today.

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Crawfordville Chiropractic Clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
