About our Doctor: Chiropractic Philosophy
Evaluate, treat, rehab
Our practice is designed to help you get out of pain and back to
activity as quickly as possible. Once we have determined that your
pain is due to a mechanical cause, rather than something serious
(such as a tumor or infection), we will take a two-pronged approach
to helping you.
One, we will show you what you can do for yourself (i.e. what activities
to avoid and which to perform).
Two, we will offer you customized treatments to speed your recovery.
These will incorporate chiropractic, soft tissue, physical therapy,
and supervised exercise methods.
We give you the power to help heal yourself.
An essential ingredient in getting better quickly is learning what "first-aid" exercises
to perform on your own. Most of these are simple limbering maneuvers
or gentle exercises for your deep "core" muscles that stabilize
your spine or joints.
Once you learn this "first-aid" routine you are able to
perform self-treatment throughout the day to speed your recovery.
You can look forward to healing quickly.
Most patients without a history of long-term problems are substantially
improved within 2 weeks after just 4-6 visits. In fact, most patients
are 80-90% recovered within 4-6 weeks.
