Chiropractor in Carlsbad, CA
New Wave Chiropractic and our Doctors are here to serve you and to help you unlock your potential to heal. We understand that, in our fast-paced society, most of us are operating on a limited capacity, consistently in a system under stress/fight or flight. With excess stress, comes a limited ability to heal and self-regulate. This is often when we start to feel pain, when illness takes over, when our minds feel overwhelmed, and when we are not present in the moment and able to enjoy life fully. We can think of the nervous system’s ability to express life like WIFI bars. When your body is on a 2-bar system, you are sluggish, not operating well, and there’s limited connectivity. When you are operating on full bars, that is when you are well connected, communicating, and not just surviving, but thriving! Let us help you get back to full bars!
Our Chiropractor in Carlsbad helps bring your body and nervous system back to a place of ease. We help to unleash the excess stress in your system and enhance your body’s ability to tap back into its rest and digest system, allowing you to heal, grow, adapt, feel connected, and thrive! When we are operating in a place of ease, that is where the magic happens and that is when you can start to live your life fully! We love helping you reduce pain symptoms, but we REALLY love when our patients tell us that they can enjoy their life, have more energy, get better sleep, have better digestion, and feel less stress or that they can adapt to it better. This is what it is all about!
Our vision at New Wave Chiropractic Center is to reach as many individuals as we can to provide holistic health care. We would love to see a community of empowered individuals making conscious health choices. We see a healthy community as one where we embrace our inborn ability to heal, self-regulate, and feel whole. We want to see Chiropractic as a staple in every household and every individual’s life.
INSPIRE, BRING JOY, and RESTORE FUNCTION

While most people originally come to a chiropractor for crisis care or pain symptoms, the majority of people tend to continue on with chiropractic care even after the pain goes away. They also tend to refer in non-pain patients including kids, spouses, and friends. Patients who do this understand that pain reduction is only a piece of what they have gained, and benefits like improved sleep, better digestion, feeling more connected, optimum performance and disease prevention are all benefits they get from wellness chiropractic care. Our doctors, our staff, and their families all enjoy a healthier life with regular chiropractic checkups even when they are not in pain. We live the chiropractic lifestyle too!
This is a great question and full disclosure one we are not very good at answering accurately. No one is. There are some conditions that we know will respond along certain timelines, but pain is such a multi-faceted metric it can be wildly unpredictable as to when it finally goes away. Sometimes it is gone after the very first treatment and sometimes it can take months. We do know that pain always has a cause, and when we can correct the cause of the pain rather than masking it with pills, potions, lotions, and injections, we can expect the pain to go away. We are very good at predicting how long it will take to correct the cause of the pain, and this is usually determined by a digital motion X-ray study, Nerve Scan, and some other testing done in the office after your initial consultation. Depending on whether you are in for lower back pain or neck pain and whether you also have sciatica migraines or carpal tunnel, these can all complicate the recovery. Your age and health status or vitality level before the pain comes into your life all play a role in how fast you will recover. While we all want the pain to go away, we look at pain as valuable information to help us find the cause, and what’s really wrong. Without pain (as in taking NSAIDs and painkillers) we often continue to do more damage until the body heads to a complete breakdown. Come in and we will help you correct the cause.
The techniques used by our doctors and staff are designed to be gentle yet powerful. There are many ways to correct subluxations (misaligned and stuck vertebrae that irritate nerves, cause pain, and interfere with normal organ function), and depending on the person we will customize our approach for the best results. It should not hurt and most people report that it feels amazing but some of the things we do can be temporarily uncomfortable, like myofascial release and active release technique (ART). The adjustment itself is done by hand or with instruments and other tools, depending on what will get the best results and patient preference. If you are already suffering from increased pain and inflammation, an adjustment can temporarily make that worse. This is rare and not usually something to worry about as long as the pain does not become severe. Ice is recommended after each visit to lower the inflammation locally and a specific diet and lifestyle that targets inflammation will give you lowered pain overall as well as many other health benefits.
No, chiropractors are primary care physicians and patients may see them for any condition before seeing another provider. Our Carlsbad chiropractic office will then decide which conditions we can help with and which may require a referral. A growing body of evidence supports chiropractic for much more than low back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
Chiropractors are NOT medical doctors, and we don’t want to be. Medicine has its place, but the current medical system is failing us. It is too expensive and not working. Medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptcy, and we are sicker now than we have ever been as a population, despite new drugs and procedures being approved daily for almost every conceivable condition. We believe that chiropractic is the answer to this. Medicine is the study of disease and what causes a man to be sick, and Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes a man to be well. It is a completely different way of looking at the body, which acknowledges the patient’s ability to create health for themselves, without drugs or surgery. Our Carlsbad Chiropractic Center is a place for people who are looking for more than ordinary medical care. It is a place for people to find hope and recover health.
This is a great question. When it comes to your health and wellness, you are your own gatekeeper. You can decide what actions you take and what healthy habits you want to engage in. We will always give you our best recommendations and you can choose to do what you want. With that being said, we hope that in our time together we will be able to educate you enough to understand the importance of chiropractic care in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Just like brushing your teeth, eating right, and exercising, chiropractic is part of a well-rounded, holistic lifestyle. Like any healthy habit, repetition is the key. Chiropractic allows you to continue living your best life by feeling and functioning great!
There are so many different chiropractic techniques and so many different applications of those techniques. Chiropractic as a principle always works, like gravity. What this means is that the nervous system always coordinates the body and if the nervous system is restored the body will always function better. If it doesn’t work, question the application, not the principle. Maybe proper nerve function was not achieved in the limited time your chiropractor had to work with you, or maybe there were many other stresses your body had to deal with before it could tackle the project you put in front of it, and maybe a different technique or approach would help you get there faster. New Wave Chiropractic Center in Carlsbad was created to help the difficult cases, the ones that just aren’t getting better, by taking a close look at the patient and treating each and every case like the unique person that they are.
Chiropractic helps your body adapt, grow, connect, heal, and thrive by ensuring your nervous system is free from interference and able to function the way it is intended to. This is why it is beneficial for babies and kids. There are different factors that affect the nervous system from functioning properly. Stress is one of them. The first physical stressor we all experience in life, is birth. Birth is not just a stressful event for mamas, but it can put a lot of stress on a little spine. Depending on how you enter this world- long labors, baby positioning, interventions that create torsion or torquing on a spine- can all affect how your little one develops and grows. Adjustments on this population look a lot different than adjustments on adults. Chiropractic care at any age is specific, gentle, and safe. For babies and kids, we use light contacts and sustained holds to help create profound change in their little bodies and nervous systems.
