NEW PATIENTS

Come in today- we will discuss your condition, perform an examination, and answer any questions. Together, with in-office treatment and home care therapies, we help you manage or resolve your condition so you can focus on the important things in life. We are dedicated to your health- if we can’t help you, we will do our best to get you the right support.

Your First Visit

Your first visit to the office will typically be the longest, approximately 1 hour.   You will need to fill out some paper work beforehand.  We can email them to you or you can download them directly above, that way you can have them filled out prior to coming in. Once completed, we will perform a thorough health history and physical exam, followed by an appropriate treatment.

The first part of your visit with us will be spent gathering information about the specific complaint with which you came into the office, as well as a comprehensive past health history.  We like to get to know our patients on a personal level to have a complete picture.

Based on your responses during the history, we will perform a focused exam to determine the exact cause of your pain as well as any contributing factors. An x-ray may be recommended if we feel it is warranted for further investigation of your condition.

A typical treatment includes soft tissue massage, followed by a chiropractic adjustment.  This term in itself can sound scary but be assured the adjustment is safe.  The doctor will discuss the technique before performing the adjustment, so you know what to expect.  Don’t be afraid to speak up, if there is something you don’t like, we will use alternative techniques that can be just as effective. The doctor also utilizes several soft tissue manipulation techniques, which are effective at breaking down scar tissue that forms after an injury, thereby restricting motion. These techniques help promote blood flow and stimulate the healing process. We may also go over rehabilitative exercises with you that will help with your recovery process.

General Questions

Chiropractic is a primary health care profession that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, muscle, bones) and the effects of these disorders on general health.

Chiropractic is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. They have over 6000 hours of training over the course of 3-4 years of post-graduate medical education.

The most common procedure performed by chiropractors is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by applying a rapid, controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of tissue injury. This can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive/sustained stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that cause inflammation, pain, and limited mobility. Manipulation of the affected joint and surrounding tissues restores motion, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal.

PHASES of CARE

0

PHASE 1: RELIEF CARE

Our first objective is to help our patients get out of pain and start feeling better. Depending on the severity of the condition, chiropractic care is recommended 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks. Our goal is to decrease symptoms and improve function by 50% in 2-4 weeks.

0

PHASE 2: CORRECTIVE CARE

Muscles and other tissues are allowed to fully repair, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of this phase is to help restore optimal function. Chiropractic care is recommended 4-8 times per month for 6-12 months, depending on overall health and severity of problem.

0

PHASE 3: WELLNESS CARE

Once the body has fully healed and is no longer experiencing pain, it is important to have periodic adjustments to avoid re-injury and maintain alignment. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a routine visit 1-4 times per month, based on lifestyle and goals.

OUR SERVICES

``The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient...``
― William Osler

We help people recover from injuries, whether acute or chronic, through manual medicine, individualized rehabilitative exercises and nutrition. These treatments help decrease inflammation and pain and optimize recovery and health.

Our primary goal is to get you feeling better. Then we teach you self-treatment strategies in hopes to minimize/avoid future injuries. The following services are offered for acute and chronic conditions:

hands-spine5

Chiropractic

Gentle and specific manual adjustments help restore proper joint motion. Drop table, activator and gentle mobilization techniques are also offered. These can be applied to the spine, extremities and jaw. Chiropractic care enables the body to heal itself and eliminate pain.

McKenzie Method

Globally recognized as a leading treatment approach for back, neck and extremity disorders. The evidence-based assessment and management protocol allows us to accurately determine the proper treatment and exercises which help eradicate pain and promote healing.

Flexion-Distraction

This therapy can provide relief of pain as a result of a lumbar disc herniation, stenosis, arthritis, and spondylolisthesis. It is a gentle way to take pressure off the discs and posterior joints. The motion improves blood flow and helps decrease inflammation.

Massage-128

Massage Therapy

Soft-tissue massage is effective for healing acute injuries and chronic conditions. The type of massage and pressure applied depends upon the individual, the diagnosis and the phase of recovery. We offer deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial, cranio-sacral, qigong and tuina.

Exercise & Rehab

The body is designed to move. We want to make sure it is moving properly and as pain-free as possible. Our personalized exercises help to stabilize the spine and coordinate proper muscle recruitment and balancing.

Nutrition & Lifestyle

Evidence-based therapeutic approaches, such as predominantly whole food, plant-based nutrition, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, etc., can prevent, treat, and reverse chronic disease.

Graston - Gua Sha

This scraping technique utilizes hand held tools that detect and break up scar tissue in muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Studies have shown this technique also stimulates formation of new collagen fibers.

Balance Training

Stimulating proprioceptive fibers in your joints with specific exercises can improve your balance, strengthen your body, and help protect you from future injury. The exercises start on a stable surface and progress to an unstable surface.

ALSO FEATURING:

Light Therapy (Laser)

LED light therapy has the ability to increase blood flow and lymphatic circulation, decrease pain, and stimulate many cellular processes that accelerate healing. Plus it has a high level of safety, no known negative side effects, is easy to administer, and is non-invasive.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to improve blood flow, decrease inflammation and help facilitate healing of soft tissue injuries of the spine and extremities. It can help with scar tissue breakdown and even promote bone fracture healing according to some studies.

Electric Muscle Stim

EMS is primarily used for pain relief and muscle re-education. It works by delivering an electrical current to enhance tissue healing after injury or for recovery. It helps improve circulation, blocks pain sensation, and restores proper muscle contraction.
