Stacy James Stadnik, DC

Dr. Stadnik graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2006. He has been practicing in Kent, Washington since 2007.

Along with Chiropractic care, Dr. Stadnik is committed to a healthy lifestyle through exercise, nutrition and supplementation, proper hydration and a positive mental attitude. His family; wife Jennifer and daughters Maddie ,Isabella and Lily all subscribed to the same goal as it is a family way of life.

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment is the subtle movement of one or more of the bones of the spine, (vertebrae) to attempt to restore proper motion and function of the joints. When the bones of the spine are out of alignment it can cause acute symptoms including headaches, neck pain, low back pain, decreased range of motion and decreased strength.

Therapeutic Massage Therapy

Millions of people see Chiropractors every year in the U.S. For most of us, there are imbalances in the spine that can cause a number of different symptoms. Like any other system in the body, if left untreated or unchecked, problems can occur. Your musculoskeletal system and your nervous system are no different. Your nervous system coordinates and controls every system in your body. Poor posture, daily stressors as well as chronic and repetitive type activities can cause a number of spine and nerve system issues. By restoring spinal function with Chiropractic adjustments, nerve interference by misaligned vertebrae is removed, thus allowing optimal nervous system function and improved health.
When a vertebrae becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position, this is referred to in the chiropractic profession as a subluxation. Subluxations can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma. When a vertebrae is subluxated, it can begin to put pressure and stress on nerves and tissues around it. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation interrupts the natural pathways that the messages sent from the brain need to be clear in order to be completed properly.

Yes, a chiropractic adjustment is safe. Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you’re cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.

Seeing a chiropractor is not only for back pain and neck pain. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to keep your body operating at peak performance. Stresses from our every day lives can cause dysfunction in the spine and nervous system that can manifest as a number of different symptoms. Lack of motion in the joints of the spine can lead to arthritis and joint wear and tear. With a proper evaluation of the spine, a plan to improve the alignment of the spine and stabilize one’s posture can be performed. Time and gravity continue to put stress on the body, which Chiropractic can be effective in treating. Many people do see a Chiropractor for a number of symptoms, but using Chiropractic as a preventative treatment can be effective in living with less pain and more activity well into our years.

Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It’s based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this nervous system is under stress, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.

In the chiropractic world, the goal is to aid in healing the body without drugs or surgery. In many cases if chiropractic treatment is sought out early enough, some surgeries may be avoided. always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem.

While it’s often perceived that the chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.

Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we’ve heard through a friend or have done some research online. It’s possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it’s time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will be about discussing your health history, performing a thorough evaluation of your spine and nervous system and determining what the problem might be. In many cases specialized tests are needed to gather more information about your condition, (x-rays of the spine). If you need to be referred or co-managed with another type of medical/health professional, then that would be discussed with you before any type of treatment plan is recommended. We regularly work with other health care professionals to make sure you get the best care available for your health concerns.
