Chiropractic is concerned with the preservation and restoration of health, and focuses particular attention on the subluxation. A subluxation is a complex of functional, structural and/or pathological spinal alignment changes that compromise nerve integrity and may influence organ system function and general health. Chiropractic is drug-free and non-invasive. It is directed toward the restoration of nerve function for the optimization of health and wellness. Chiropractic care “adjustments” is a powerful therapy in musculoskeletal pain and for integrative health and wellness care. Therapeutic affects of chiropractic range from pain relief, improved range of motion of neck and back, increased energy, improved mood, clearer thinking, and strengthening of arms, legs, and muscles by improved functions of the nervous system.


Is one of the most ancient forms of medicine, dating back over 2000 years. Acupuncture is the insertion of tiny needles into various points along energy channels (meridians), with the purpose to stimulate qi or energy, in order to open blockage of qi and to facilitate the free flow of energy. Therapeutic affects of acupuncture and moxibustion range from pain relief, lightening anxiety and depression, cooling hot flashes and migraines, restoring fertility, building the foundation of energy, and resolving allergies. Acupuncture is used to strengthen your body's resilience, prevent disease, control pain, and to achieve longevity. Moxibustion is a herb called mogwart, which is burned and used to heat certain points. Moxibustion warms and increases the foundational energy of the body and also helps to calm the mind. Since our western lifestyle is so stressful and overworked, our body's qi and energy is easily depleted, and by the age of 40 we start developing many symptoms because of this depletion of qi and energy. As our resilience decreases, we are much more susceptible to illness and injury. Acupuncture and moxibustion are used to balance the body's qi and energetics and consequently our resilience is re-established. It's a no brainer!! Increased qi and resilience results in improved health, vitality, and well being.


Movement is life. Once movement stops, life ceases. In today's society, we tend to eat more and move less. Appropriately applied exercise can aid in weight loss, balance of hormones, reduce pain, improve mobility, mood, and cognition.


Hippocrates said, “let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.” Food is one of our most powerful tools to used to maintain health, prevent, and treat disease. There are vast applications for food and pharmaceutical grade supplements. We counsel our patients to the degree at which they want to participate.


Your lifestyle refers to your eating, drinking, sleeping, working, and thinking habits; where you work and live; how you deal with stress; how you deal with relationships, etc. The way that you live your life is a determining factor in your health. Dr. Beadle is ready to meet you where you are, whether you need suggestions for better eating, creating more time and space in your life, or how to change negative and destructive thought patterns.


Dr. Beadle seeks to optimize health and increase the quality and length of life. Healthcare that is grounded in the principles of balance of the nervous system, energetics (qi), internal and external factors, interconnection of physiologic factors, and health as a positive vitality, rather than the absence of disease. Our approach differs from western medicine, which focuses on managing disease (rather than prevention) and treatment of separate parts and organs (rather than finding the root cause and secondary symptoms). We address the root cause of symptoms and disease by using chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle counseling to “fix” and heal the body from the inside out.


ERCHONIA Lasers emit visible coherent light that is applied to the affected area. Bundles of light energy pass through the dermal layers, and are received within the cell membrane by specific energy photo acceptors. The increase in intra-cellular energy results in altered cell membrane permeability, and physiological changes occur through an enzyme cascade to affect several biological processes. Within the injured musculoskeletal tissue, low-level laser light initiates increased micro circulation and enhanced tissue regeneration. The overall effects are decreased pain and inflammation, and increased range of motion. Cold laser retrains nerve and muscle coordination to help heal and prevent injuries. Also good for: neck and back pain, sciatic, sports injuries, sinus, bone fractures, skin maladies, burns and bruises.


From anxiety and depression to neck and back pain, Dr. Beadle uses chiropractic and acupuncture to treat a variety of conditions. For more information about conditions that can be treatable visit our symptoms and conditions page, or call us today (828) 325-5850.
