McKINNEY (Aug. 21, 2014) — Healthful Chiropractic is proud to announce Dr. Jason Alder has found a new home in McKinney. Born and raised in the Rocky Mountains, he quickly learned to enjoy the outdoors and the wonders of the mountains. After receiving an undergraduate degree in kinesiology and nutrition, Dr. Alder attended the Palmer College of Chiropractic. Dr. Alder spent time in Italy, where he received additional extensive chiropractic training in upper cervical specific techniques including advanced imaging. With Dr. Alder’s move to McKinney he brings his experience and a new technologically advanced approach to head and neck injuries.

Dr. Alder focuses his practice on Upper Cervical techniques and is one of very few doctors in the DFW Metroplex performing the procedure. The technology, utilized by the procedure, makes it unique and cutting edge. Using Cone Beam 3D imaging, Dr. Alder observes and analyses the upper cervical (neck) region for injury and inconsistency in joint function. This approach to visualizing the structures in this delicate region of the spine will help improve general function and mobility for many in McKinney.

A head or neck injury, no matter how small, is serious. There are little anatomical variances in all of us, and understanding and recognizing these variances may help to improve the overall function of the joints in the neck and spine.

The use of Cone Beam and Upper Cervical care was studied by Dr. Jake Hallowell, a chiropractor in Trapani, Sicily, Italy. Analysis is the key. After a full analysis of the images, a correction is mathematically calculated. Thus, eliminating the need for bending, twisting, popping, cracking or pain associated with the correction. Each correction is carefully calculated for each patient. The concept is to correct the structural problems and the body will function better. Most people with an injury to the upper cervical spine would benefit from this type of care.

Infants and children are at the most risk because their injuries usually go unnoticed and undetected. Due to Dr. Alder’s own experience, He has dedicated one morning a week to infant care at no charge. Dr. Alder is proud to make McKinney his new home and is excited to provide a needed service in McKinney. Join us in welcoming Dr. Alder to our beautiful city and choosing to make it his new home.
