What is Chiropractic? Chiropractic is a healing art based on science and philosophy. Chiropractors focus on the fact that the nervous system is the master control system of the body. If the joints of the spine and extremities become misaligned and stuck, known as "subluxation", this can cause degeneration of the joint, improper sensory signaling to the brain, poor motor control and coordination of muscles and a whole host of other malfunctions of the nerves in that area. Additionally this stuck joint can cause a cascade effect, meaning that the lost motion will show up somewhere else and cause problems at that location. This can cause pain or dysfunction in seemingly unrelated areas of the body. Chiropractors perform "adjustments" to correct stuck joints, or subluxations. An adjustment is a careful application of just the right amount of pressure, in a very specific direction, either done by hand or with percussion devices, that restores the proper positioning and motion of the joint. This allows the joint to resume normal function and reduce the interference or irritation to the surrounding nerves. When you restore proper nerve signaling and function your body goes into healing mode, as it is designed to do, and many miraculous things can follow!
Some comments about symptoms Symptoms, most notably pain, are a warning sign in the body that something is not right. They are not to be ignored but symptoms themselves are not the problem. Simply eliminating pain, unfortunately, does not mean you are healthy and functioning at optimal levels. Many common spinal problems can cause progressive and permanent joint degeneration, or nerve signal interference, EVEN IF THERE IS NO PAIN. Although chiropractors are happy to help patients reduce or stop their pain, if true health and wellness is your goal then you need to see a chiropractor that has a practice philosophy that goes beyond pain treatment.

2011-02-22 16:02:10 Dr. Bryon came to my yoga class with a presentation. A few months later I hurt my neck and went to Dr.B. He has been fabulous. I'm feeling better in many ways. Thanks for your help Dr.Bryon! Sincerely, Mello Wadsworth —MelanieWadsworth
2011-04-19 20:22:45 After having been to multiple chiropractors in Davis, all to no avail, I was extremely enthralled once I found my now permanent chiropractor, Dr. Cloyd. His expertise and precise methods of care have really paid off in the case of my scoliosis and I never realized I would ever overcome the constant pain my back has encumbering me with over the past 5 years. Definitely one of the best in the Davis/Sacramento area, in my opinion. Overall very professional, very result-oriented, and it has improved my day to day life very drastically. —SamElmo22
2011-06-27 21:09:08 I was in a bad car accident a little over a year ago I and I went to a number of different specialists to help with my pain and mobility without much difference. I saw his presentation and figure why not try this too. What luck. I was a little hesitant because my experience over the past year but after my first session I noticed a slight difference. After several sessions there was a big difference. I sleep better, I feel better and I am so delighted to be able to exercise again. I would highly recommend him to anyone look for help. —Mahin
2012-03-13 13:05:51 I had a pain in my back for months before I went to my doctor. He sent me to have a CAT scan and an MRI. Both were "normal for my age", 71. My doctor recommended physical therapy. A friend recommended Dr. Bryon. I was skeptical of chiropractic treatment but decided to try. After two months of adjustments with Bryon, and with the stretching exercises he recommended, I have no pain, I sleep better and feel better. I'll stay with Bryon for a long time! John C —johnkcook
2014-09-11 10:42:09 As an RN at UC Davis, my back health is imperative to my ability to work. I was referred to Dr. Cloyd by my husband's co-worker the last time my back tightened up so bad I couldn't go to work (a few years ago now). I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Cloyd and was impressed with his assessments, treatments and recommendations for stretching and strengthening exercises. I continue to travel to Davis from Sacramento to see Dr. Cloyd for regular appointments to maintain my back in the best condition possible and appreciate Dr. Cloyd's flexibility and willingness to make adjustments at times when I am experiencing flare-ups! Thanks Dr. Bryon! —KorinnWiest
2015-03-27 17:37:01 Have seen several chiropractors in he last 30 years, usually for severe pain in the lower back caused by a compressed disc. This usually would take about two weeks of treatment before the pain would lessen. This was my first time being treated by Dr. Cloyd and besides the usual problems with the low back pain, I also was having a hard time sitting, as it was too uncomfortable, couldn't stand straight and I was having bladder problems, which felt like it was nerve related. Plus I was experiencing shooting pain and numbness in my legs, hip pain, etc. I was hurting. After the first visit I was feeling relief, by the third visit it was getting difficult to recall not being able to sit or stand straight. After the 5th visit I really have had all of my issues improve to the point were they are a memory. I also have to say that all Chiropractors that I have seen have different techniques and philosophy of care. Dr Cloyd works beyond the point of pain to include other joints and areas that can be out of balance. A very good experience. RC48. —RC48
