Chiropractic Care

The first chiropractic appointment consists of a consultation with me. We review your chief complaint and personal health history. If indicated, x-rays can be taken on-site. A full examination is conducted. Depending on your issue, if x-rays were taken, you may or may not be treated on the first visit.

Your first treatment will consist of an adjustment, and if necessary, other manual therapy.  I primarily use the following assessment and adjusting techniques:

  • Diversified
  • Low-Force Manual
  • Webster
  • Drop
  • Activator
  • modified CBP
  • modified flexion-distraction

Other manual therapies include:

  • Myofacial release
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Active release
  • Post-facilitation stretching/post-isometric relaxation
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy

In the office we also have access to the following adjunct treatments:

  • Cold laser
  • Spinal traction devices

Treatment length will depend upon the condition being treated and response to care. Oftentimes at-home care instructions are given to help support care and expedite healing. Appropriate referrals can be made if additional modalities are necessary.
