This is our Partner Profile Q&A with Dr. Bart Patzer of Austin Life Chiropractic.
How long have you been in business?
Dr. Bart Patzer, a 3rd generation upper cervical chiropractor, utilizes his 23 years of experience in family care, seeing patients of all ages, ranging from newborn babies to 104 years of age. His grandfather and father before him practiced Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Texas, and Dr. Patzer has dedicated his love and passion for upper cervical chiropractic by continuing the legacy of his forefathers. He is extremely dedicated to the chiropractic profession and volunteers his time to serve various boards to ensure the profession is preserved in the manner upon which its principals were founded.
Dr. Summer Brown is certified in the Webster technique and a member of the BirthFit family, both specializing in prenatal, postpartum and pediatric care. In addition, Dr. Brown is certified in Fascial Distortion Model, a myofascial release technique used for soft tissue injuries and any musculoskeletal complaints. She believes every person should have the education and option of chiropractic care as subluxations can start as early as improper positioning in the womb.
Dr. Sheneaka Jackson, a graduate of Life University has been serving the Austin area for over 10 years. She is certified in the Webster technique and specializes in two Upper Cervical Chiropractic Techniques, Orthospinology and NUCCA. She has taught orthospinology to many doctors of chiropractic and has taught x-ray placement to the x-ray technician students at the College of Health Care Profession. Dr. Jackson found her passion in chiropractic when her son Garrion suffered from chronic ear infections as an infant. After her son had such a turn around in his health from chiropractic adjustments, she vowed to help children and infants towards optimal health through chiropractic care.
How is upper cervical care different?
There are 274 possible ways the top two bones in your neck can become misaligned so precise x-rays and analysis is essential. An upper cervical adjustment/correction is gentle so there is no forceful pulling, twisting, or jerking motion of your neck. The correction is applied using a precise and controlled tool that allows the head, neck, and spine to return to their proper position. We have personally used this gentle adjustments/correction on newborns to people up to 104 years of age to restore their health and vitality.
What excites you most about your business?
Everyone can benefit from chiropractic care! Infants to seniors, mothers-to-be looking for an easier, healthier pregnancy, athletes recovering from injuries and to better their performance will all benefit from a healthy spine and nervous system. From birth onward, our spine and nervous system is subjected to many forces that may affect the integrity of alignment of the spine. It’s common to see entire families choose chiropractic because no one is ever too young or too old to strive for a healthy nervous system for life!
What’s the most challenging?
The fear and misconception of what chiropractic is and how it’s executed. If people knew how safe, gentle and effective chiropractic is, we believe we would have a much healthier society. The way our society has been conditioned from birth to take drugs has lead to a society that wants a one pill cure all. Instead if we were to consider what the underlining cause of the problem is and understanding that the nervous system controls all functions of the body, we would search out those modalities that help our bodies heal from the inside out. Removing nervous system interference (chiropractic), together with transformation of diet and movement (because movement = life), is the only way to achieve true health and wellness.
What’s one thing you want people to know about you?
Your body has the innate ability to heal itself! Chiropractic is based upon the sciences of anatomy, biology, and neurology. Your brain and spinal cord (the Central Nervous System) controls and coordinates all physiological functions of the body. Your spine protects your spinal cord. If there is a misalignment, or abnormal motion of one of the segments in the spine, it will disrupt the communication between the brain and the body or the body to the brain leading to abnormal function. This condition is referred to as a vertebral subluxation. The chiropractic correction of the adjustment, is used to restore motion and alignment, which in turn restores brain to body communication, which optimizes health and self-healing capabilities.
