INITIAL VISIT

Complete Health History

We ask that you provide information on family medical history, any pre-existing medical conditions or prior injuries, and previous and current health providers and treatments.

Physical Evaluation

In preparation for your chiropractic consultation, you will be asked to fill out forms that provide background information about the symptoms and condition. Types of questions asked may be

When and how did the pain start?

  • Where is it located?
  • Is it a result of an injury?
  • What activities/circumstances makes it better?
  • What activities/circumstances makes it worse?
Diagnosis & Treatment Plan

Following the assessments, we will develop a treatment plan that takes into account:

  • The extent of your injury or irritation
  • Your general health
  • The condition of your spine
  • What your goals of treatment

We will tell you the status of your condition and recommend an approach to care. Ask questions. As in any professional-patient relationship, trust and mutual understanding are vitally important.

Intersegmental Traction

You will lie on your back on this table which has vibrating roller-type cams beneath its surface. These massaging rollers travel slowly up and down the spine. Most patients find this form of traction to be very relaxing and therapeutic.

Adjustment

Our adjustment is to correct the spinal subluxations detected during the examination. To do that, we apply pressure to the bone and “unlock” it from its improper position. The bone will then be free to align itself correctly. Our hope is to free up your vertebrae. Then, the body can do its job and put them back in the correct position.

MATERNITY TREATMENT

Pregnancy can be a time of joy and exciting anticipation, yet for some the experience is colored by pain, discomfort and illness. This is often because pregnant women undergo many structural and hormonal changes that affect the spine, nerves, joints, ligaments, connective tissues, center of gravity and stability  We can ensure that the spinal column, pelvis and related structures are balanced, moving easily and free of subluxations. Chiropractic care is safe for a pregnant women and unborn child as it is a gentle and drug free approach.

Chiropractic care is essential for infants, babies & children.Think of chiropractic care as you would good nutritional care- always essential for your child’s good health. With a healthy structural system, a child can better deal with the sore throats, ear infections, stomachaches, fevers, measles, mumps, and the hundred-and-one other problems that make up young life.

 
 

 

DTS SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy is a pain-free alternative that has shown a very high rate of success at reducing and even eliminating back and neck pain altogether. DTS Spinal Decompression provides relief to severe back and neck pain sufferers by gently reducing the pressure within spinal discs. The bones of the spine are slowly and methodically separated using the state-of-the-art DTS Spinal Decompression Unit. As the vertebrae are separated pressure is slowly reduced within the disc (intradiscal pressure) until a vacuum is formed. This vacuum “sucks” the gelatinous center of the disc back inside thereby reducing the disc bulge or disc herniation. Significant disc bulge reduction removes pressure off the spinal nerves and drastically reduces pain and disability. This “sucking” vacuum also pulls much-needed oxygen, nutrients and fluid into injured and degenerated discs allowing the healing to begin.
