“Too many times I have come across research that taught me what I should be doing and I just sat there with no sincere follow up, or I would act but my drive would fade. Then I found something that just “clicked”. All the elements that push me in a direction of action, were there. I pursued this knowledge with vigor and in doing so, my eyes were opened to “what can be” when we are able to function with out anything structurally blocking us from doing so. I saw miracles both in my own family and circle of friends, and others on the other side of the world. Miracles from simple adjustments. I saw life become possible when the medical field had shut that door of possibility. I saw people find joy and meaning in their life again because they weren’t bogged down after decades, with pain. I saw kids that could communicate and interact that were immobile before. I could no longer sit back and do nothing. I had to act. I had to help. I had to do. Every morning I know I am going to be serving the people who took that step and wanted to make changes. I love what I do and I love the people I do it with. “

Corrective care: Corrective care focuses on “fixing” the issue not “patching” it. We dive deep into long term affects and preventative measures. This also provides additional exercises and classes for you to get the most out of your time and money.
Types of adjustments: Manual Adjustments- the use of the hand guiding and directing the adjustment. Instrument Adjustments- the use of an addition tool to direct, assist, or create the movement needed for an adjustment.
Techniques practiced in our clinic: Chiropractic Bio Physics(CBP)- the technique that has the most and best research behind it, that uses traction to restore and maintain proper alignment. Webster- pregnancy techniques to relieve strained and stretched ligaments. This is also tied to pediatric care. Pediatric- is a softer technique used on acute pain and newborns and children.

It is a combination of muscle testing, elements of acupuncture and energy work. Similarly related to N.E.T.Drop Table- is a style of adjusting that uses pieces of table that rise and drop with the pressures placed on the body while doing an adjustment. This provides a powerful adjustment without beating the patient up. Also used for pregnancy patients to ease up pressure on the belly during adjustments. Toggle- this is when the chiropractor, using crossed hands, presses down firmly on a particular area of the spine. Then, with a quick and precise thrust, the chiropractor adjusts the spine. Gonstead-this technique uses a very specific method of analysis by the use of nervoscopes, full spine x-rays and precise adjusting techniques that condemns “torquing” of the spine, which may harm the Intervertebral disc.Diversified- Uses specific manual thrusts focused on restoring normal biomechanical function. Has been developed to adjust extremity joints as well.

The process of being born is hard on the human body, both mother and baby. The skull gets misshapen. The neck usually has kinks from being in the same position for months and little room to move. Adjusting a newborn right after birth is easy, safe and harmless. Latching right after birth sometimes is difficult and can be taken care of with one light push in the right direction. It’s easier to take care of these errors while the child is small and bones haven’t fused together as much. As children grow, they have many falls and injuries that seem minor but have a huge impact in their adult life.
Whiplash, spinal compressions, extremity fracture and concussions are all side effects one can experience in a car accident.

Have you or someone you know, been hurt on the job? Work injuries often prevent you from being able to work and provide for your family or do the things you love doing. We work hard to make your time away from work minimal. Your work is what provides for you and your family and we get that. Worker’s compensation cases are handled swiftly with monitoring of your progress from both the social worker and our clinic.
To speed the process up of getting care, we offer in house x-ray services. We like knowing what needs to be moved and where. X-Rays often take the guess work out of adjustments and leaves the doctor with a more supported idea of what care you need. X-Rays also provide you with a glimpse into what is going on and causing those pains or preventing you from doing daily activities.
In our office we take it one step further with your x-rays and show you where your spine should have curves and shape and where it actually does, or does not. We mark them similarly to the one in the picture here so you can clearly see the work that needs to be done. As care progresses, we will periodically take more images to see the progress that has been made.
