We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
A chiropractic adjustment can make you feel so much better. Your body does not want to be out of alignment, and that’s exactly what an adjustment can help address. It is also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation. The adjustment refers to the manipulation of the vertebrae that have abnormal movements and are not functioning properly. A chiropractic adjustment will assist in fixing these issues.
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, increase the range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve mobility. Our compassionate and qualified chiropractor will work with you to relieve this pain and get you back to being pain free every single day.
Although many people visit their chiropractor and have an adjustment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit will help you avoid any pain in the future and will keep your body feeling great all day long.
If you are having one of those days when you are not in the best mood, an adjustment may actually help. Your body will feel much better, which will naturally improve your mood.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.

Applied Kinesiology (AK)
Applied Kinesiology is a technique used to balance the body’s function. With this system normal and abnormal body function can be evaluated using muscle tests. Evaluation can be done on the nervous, vascular, lymphatic, nutrition, acupuncture and cerebrospinal fluid function. Many times a weak muscle does not necessarily mean poor muscle function but possible trouble with the organ or other tissue on the same nerve, vascular or nutritional grouping. If these muscles become imbalanced, then postural distortions and pain can occur. Using AK can rebalance the system and health can be restored naturally.

Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
Neuro Emotional Technique is a technique used by Dr. Geipel to address the emotional component. This technique uses chiropractic and physiological procedures to return our body’s response to different stresses to a more balanced response. It has been scientifically shown that each emotion is produced by a specific chemical (example: neuropeptide) produced by the body. The technique balances these chemicals and thereby balancing the emotions resulting in the body becoming balanced.

Today Body Modification
TBM is adjunct to all existing chiropractic philosophies used for the restoration and maintenance for the optimum health of our patients. The main philosophy is the power that made the body can heal the body. TBM stands for Total Body Modification. It has been found that if the right thing is done to the right body at the right time in the right way, the body can heal. It is a combination of old chiropractic techniques combined with modern technology. We use a simple indicator muscle test and test points located throughout the body to determine the positive or negative function of that body. Depending on the area and a system that is out of function, different techniques can be used to realign the function and thereby restore function and communication within the body. DD. Palmer said, “Too much or too little energy is pathology.” Total Body Modification evolved from the minds and insights of Dr. Victor L. Frank and the late Dr. C. Harold Havlic.
Dr. Geipel met Dr. Frank in the early 90’s and studied under him and his various techniques and has been using them since to help people with a mired of different ailments. The idea is to not treat the ailment but to treat the body. If the body becomes imbalanced it can express itself in different ways and then a different disease name can be put on it. If the body functions at 100% of its potential then it will not get sick. This is one of the main philosophies that Dr. Geipel have learned from Dr. Victor Frank.

pH stands for potential of hydrogen ion concentration. pH scale goes from 0.00 which is completely acid to 14.00 which is completely alkaline. Distilled water has a pH of 7. Blood should have a pH of 7.35-7.45. If blood goes out of this range we would not be able to survive very long. In our office the main pH we test the saliva pH. According to Dr. Morter the optimum pH of the saliva is 6.8 and then after it is stressed by a high acid food such as a chewable vitamin C and then cleared from the mouth pH should be 8.0. Anything out of that is considered non optimum. Urine pH should be between 5.5 and 5.8 if the person’s alkaline reserve is adequate.
The saliva pH can change more to emotional stresses whereas the urine pH will change more from the foods that we have recently eaten. It is important to maintain optimum pH in order to maintain optimum health. If the pH is not correct then the normal body function will be stressed and unable to perform at their full potential. Here at Geipel Chiropractic as a Morter Health Systems doctor we can advise you about the foods to eat to improve your diet, your body’s pH, and your health. We can tell you what your pH readings mean and answer your questions about how your eating habits affect the way that you feel and how healthy you are.
Iridology is the study of the iris and the eye including its texture as well as its color. It is gentle, noninvasive way of identifying inherited strengths and deficiencies in the body. Through iris analysis, areas of the body that lack vitality to resist illness can be determined and then supported through good nutrition or other naturopathic methods. Because Iridology shows genetic predispositions, preventive care can be introduced. This is especially valuable in working with children and young people. Iridology can be used as a valuable tool to discern potential structural and functional imbalances within the body by nutritionists, herbalists, naturopaths, homeopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors, massage therapists, nurses, medical doctors or any trained health care practitioner and then treat the client according to their particular expertise.
