Chiropractic care is like building a house — certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .
Phase 1: Initial Care
Visits tend to be frequent (usually 3 times per week for 1-3 weeks), in order to decrease the acute process and restore posture, balance and function as quickly as possible. In addition to your adjustments and exercises, the doctor may also recommend other therapies including electrical muscle stimulation, cold laser therapy, aqua massage (whirlpool), non-needle acupuncture, detoxification therapy and/or whole body vibration therapy and /or nutritional therapy to help speed recovery and relieve your pain. Your age, condition, lifestyle and response to care will determine the duration of this frequency.
Phase 2: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
Phase 3: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 4: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
My mission is to facilitate healing in a caring and friendly environment. I utilize a common sense approach in arriving at your diagnosis, educating you about your condition, and providing you with practical advice and customized care. I emphasize exercise and self-treatment to speed recovery and prevent relapse.
My unique approach to healthcare sets us apart from many other chiropractors and healthcare providers. I invite you to navigate through our website for more detailed information regarding all that our practice has to offer.

Many of our patients are surprised to learn that we treat so many different conditions besides back and neck pain. As chiropractic physicians, of course we see excellent results in the treatment of back and neck pain. But because of our additional training in sports and spinal rehabilitation and physical therapy techniques, we also treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions including pain and injuries involving the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. I also offer many different approaches when addressing other conditions including: anxiety, depression, chronic pain, infections, allergies and asthma, arthritis, headaches, disc herniations, sciatica, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, heartburn, irritable bowel, womens health issues.
You can expect a prompt referral if your condition would be better treated, or co-managed, by another healthcare provider.
I believe in teaching our patients techniques to become as self-reliant as possible. Creating an independent patient not one that is dependant on their physician. While some of my patients with chronic, recurring conditions choose to receive ongoing care, most of our patients recover within several weeks or months.
Radiographic films/ x-rays are necessary for three reasons.
- To determine if any boney pathologies or fractures are present.
- To provide structural information to assist in determining the proper diagnosis.
- To assist in determining which technique to utilize for your care.
