Henri Marcoux Chiropractor

The Doctor

Dr. Henri Marcoux, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr Marcoux graduated from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in 1966.

Right from the outset into private practice, Dr Marcoux was practicing in a wholistic manner taking physical, nutritional, emotional and spiritual factors in considerations when assessing new patients. Attending continuing education seminars soon became the norm and in 1970, started training to become a board certified specialist in Chiropractic Orthopedics or the science and the art of being an expert in correcting joint disorders without the use of drugs or surgery.

After 5 years of study and specialization he was granted Diplomate status in 1975 to the prestigious American Board of Chiropractic Orthopedists (DABCO). This accomplishment opened the door to further studies including being a founding member of the College of Chiropractic Science, and the College of Chiropractic Orthopedists in Canada.

Wanting to learn more lead Dr Marcoux into the exploration of different Chiropractic techniques. Over the years since his graduation he has changed his chiropractic methodology, techniques and assessment procedures at least 6 times. In Manitoba he was the first DC to use the Gillet Method of Motion Palpation (1966), the Activator Method (1978) and Network Spinal Analysis (1991) years before anyone else.

Dr Marcoux has also studied Applied Kinesiology, Clinical Kinesiology, Gonstead Technique, Logan Basic, Upper Cervical Techniques, TRT, Cranial Adjusting techniques, Sacro-Occiputal Technique, Travell Myofascial Release, Coccygeal technique (internal and external), Extremity Techniques and a significant number of named and unnamed technique systems and analysis. These would include various methods in spinal manipulation, and structural spinal adjusting including developing his own techniques to adjust the spine and other articulations of the body. Structural adjustments are always given when the body and spine are most receptive. No adjustment is administered if there is the slightest resistance.

Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is the main method employed in the Marcoux Chiropractic Office since 1991. This method features light touch applied in an honoring sequence for the purpose of releasing "Adverse Mechanical Cord Tension" (Brieg/Epstein) in the meningeal membranes of the spine. This produces a deep relaxation as the breathe and a gentle respiratory wave resets the segments of the spine. Dr Marcoux also applies his extensive knowledge and experience of other gentle methods of spinal adjustment in the care of his patients.

The philosophy of Dr Marcoux's practice is as follows:

Dr Marcoux operates his practice based on the realistic premise that we experience life physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually through our body. There is no separation in these different components that make us who we are. Our entire body structure, the body/mind, is held by the spine as the central holding element. Furthermore, research and experience has shown us repeatedly that the spinal cord exerts a direct control on the alignment and function of the spine. Our posture is a direct reflection of who we are and clinical experience in many fields shows that changing the spine changes the person. The goal then is to reduce or remove the "Adverse Mechanical Cord Tension" (Breig) thus freeing up the spinal structures and promoting more efficient neurological function. This then allows the body to regain it's ease and flexibility in order to create better adaptability to the challenges of life.

The primary goal of Chiropractic care in the office is the restoration of health and well being by correcting functional deficiencies that occur in the structure of the body, mainly the spinal system. Through sequenced gentle contacts on the spinal areas that attach the meningeal membranes, the spinal cord system which controls the spinal structures becomes more relaxed and elongated. This has a positive influence on the spinal cord itself which is recognized as the great organizer of health and disease in the body (I Korr). If your spinal cord now works better and more efficiently so will your whole body.

Symptoms are easily controlled using this approach because the emphasis is on making the body work better, or restoring function. This is a "healing" process as opposed to a symptom relief or "curing" process. This whole person chiropractic care acknowledges that the body is one. Every aspect of the body interacts with everything else. This is Neurologically Based Chiropractic at its best.

Feeling good is an important component of being healthy, but symptoms are there to tell you that the body is not adapting to conditions in your life. They are also present to tell you what not to do. Symptoms also suggest that changes must be made somewhere in your life. In the event of an injury, symptoms guide you to seek help and to start to remedy the immediate situation. Symptoms will also guide you physically by keeping you down and/or preventing you from further injury.

Health is a manifestation of normal function over time. All dis-ease (loss of normal function) and disease (changes in the cellular structure also called "pathology") is a manifestation of abberant function over time. These principles apply to all tissues of the body.
