Dr. Bill Nolan of Cherry Street Chiropractic is your spine and back doctor Danvers, MA area. Did you know that approximately 80% of the population will experience pain in the low back and/or neck at some time in their life. Aches and pains are signs that your body isn’t working properly.
Your brain and spinal cord control how your body works. When your spine is not in proper alignment, it sets the stage for disease and ill health. These misalignments can be caused by physical, emotional or chemical stresses. When these misalignments occur, muscles will contract and lock spinal joints into a positions that can pinch or irritate the nerves.
“Dr Bill is phenomenal. He fixed a problem that I’ve had for two years with one visit, while identifying other issues that he is currently working on. It’s always a pleasure to see his homey and spacious business, nestled in a nice residential area with ample parking. Bottom line: effective, personable, warm and inviting. Good stuff and great for your overall health – think of it as on par with going to the gym.”

Common spinal conditions we see in the office:
As a spine and back doctor, a thorough medical history and physical examination helps us identify these misalignments, also called subluxations. We also have an on-site x-ray suite that allows us to quickly diagnosis conditions instead of having to refer patients out for imaging. Once these misalignments are properly detected we put them back into the proper position, which allows the body to function and heal at an optimum level.
Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. A chiropractor restores health and prevents injury by improving the body’s structural integrity, primarily the spine.
The nervous system is like the body’s wiring. If this wiring is inhibited, also known as a subluxation, the signal doesn’t reach the intended body part, and which could result in illness. Such interferences can occur anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand could actually be caused by a problem in your neck because that’s where the nerves connecting to the hand originate.
According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, chiropractic care focuses on the relationship of structure and function, and then how that relationship affects your health. Every chiropractic adjustment is designed to remove subluxations, which then allows the body to heal itself!
Each adjustment is tailored and unique to each patient. Chiropractic adjustments are so safe that even newborns and children can receive adjustments to repair the damage caused from the birth process, learning to walk, or other childhood trauma.
Functional Medicine is patient- centered healing at its very best. Instead of looking at and treating health problems as isolated diseases, it treats individuals who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances, and dysfunctions. A named disease such as diabetes, cancer, or fibromyalgia might be visible above the surface, but according to Functional Medicine, the cause lies below the surface in the altered physiology. Usually, the cause of the disease and its symptoms is an underlying dysfunction or a bodily systems imbalance.
Our current healthcare system treats just the tip of the iceberg, the named diseases. It rarely leads to long-term relief and vibrancy. Identifying and treating the underlying cause, which Functional Medicine does, has a much better chance to successfully resolve health challenges.
In today’s healthcare model, medication is used to get rid of people’s symptoms. If the patient stops using the medication, symptoms generally return. Functional Medicine takes a different approach. Instead of masking the problem, it aims at restoring the natural physiology of the body. For example, conventional doctors would normally prescribe pharmaceuticals like Prilosec, Prevacid, or Aciphex to treat either acid reflux or heartburn. When the patient stops taking those drugs, the heartburn symptoms come back. In contrast, a Functional Medicine practitioner might determine that a patient’s acid reflux is actually caused by Helicobacter pylori bacteria. Therefor, eradicating the Helicobacter pylori might very well lead to the end of heartburn symptoms, indefinitely. You might be surprised to learn that the concept of Functional Medicine isn’t really new. It’s actually a return to the roots of modern scientific medicine, captured in this statement by Sir William Osler, one of the first professors at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and later its Physician-in-Chief: “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patients who has the disease.”
