Our chiropractic adjustments are not just "rack and crack." We adjust with a purpose. We start with an examination, take any necessary x-rays, and then come up with a plan that's safe and effective for you. Our care also includes at-home recommendations to make sure you get lasting results and won't need frequent adjustments in order to maintain your spine long-term. We see our chiropractic care with you as a team effort.
We utilize several chiropractic techniques and can adapt your care to the style of chiropractic you are seeking while still delivering fantastic results. We will also perform follow-up x-rays so you can see the changes that have occurred.
Patients experiencing such problems as facet syndrome, sciatica, Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, spinal stenosis, or bulging and herniated discs will benefit from the use of Spinal Decompression Therapy. We had a very high success rate in helping all of these problems in the past with just chiropractic care, but still felt like there was more we could do for those we couldn't help
Patients not responding to chiropractic adjustments would be referred for pain management, epidural steroid injections, or even surgery. While drugs are helpful in dealing with symptoms, they don't fix anything and that goes directly against what we stand for as an office. We also strive to help patients avoid surgery unless absolutely necessary.
Spinal decompression treatments can be hugely helpful with the conditions we listed, or just as a way of decompressing your spine (especially if you regularly lift heavy weights). Even better, this decompression table allows us to help more severe cases and prevent them from more invasive methods of pain relief.
Being able to efficiently and conveniently take the right spinal x-rays is very important to your chiropractic care. We need to be able to make sure there's nothing happening inside of you that would stop us from treating you. We can also modify your care based on what we find on radiographic examination.
Our x-rays are taken weight-bearing (standing) so that we can see how your spine is working against gravity. We look for any signs of fracture or pathology and then take measurements to help us determine the best way to adjust you to get the fastest and best possible results.
Anatomical leg length is one of the most commonly overlooked issues causing your spinal pain and misalignment. Getting the correct measurement and then making the correction will go a long way in helping you achieve lasting long-term results.
If you ignore this aspect of your spinal condition, your symptoms may return again and again until you finally get an accurate measurement and correct the leg length difference. A simple shoe insert can provide immediate relief and allow you to hold your adjustments for a long time.
Many patients have been surprised to find out their legs are different lengths, and find that the correction explains so much as to why they've been dealing with the same problems over and over again. Leg length issues may take the form of headaches, neck pain, back pain, and one side that keeps having the problem with a hip, knee, or ankle.
We utilize Foot Levelers to create custom orthotics for our patients. The need for orthotics is based on your examination, x-rays, and leg length discrepancy. Custom orthotics can include the heel lift measurement we've determined via leg length x-rays.
Patients are scanned in-office for their custom orthotics and the type of orthotic will be determined by you and your chiropractor. Once ordered, they take about a week to arrive and can be adjusted or modified as needed during the "breaking in" period.
