Chiropractic

Our chiropractic service is on hand to help you with customized treatments based upon your experience. We want to know your symptoms and how your symptoms are impacting your life and daily activities.

What to expect on your first visit:

  • You and your chiropractor will discuss your health history to determine if you are a candidate for chiropractic care
  • Your chiropractor will perform a complete exam (Static muscle scan, Thermal scan, neurological examination, orthopedic examination)
  • Your chiropractor may order additional tests and/or past reports to gain further information

Report of Finding:

Prior to your second visit, your Chiropractor will study the results of the examination from the Initial consultation and prepare a detailed “Report of Findings”. He or she will meet with you to show you what was found in the examination, and recommend a program of chiropractic care which meets your specific needs. If your chiropractor thinks you would benefit from consulting a different practitioner, he or she will make the proper referral.

Goals for this visit:

  • understand how chiropractic care can improve your health concerns
  • understand how much time will be required to improve your health
  • understand what your investment into your health will be
  • understand what the chiropractor and staff are responsible for
  • understand what the patient is responsible for
  • answer any and all of your questions so that you are making an informed health care decision

Treatment

You and your chiropractor will determine the best treatment application based upon your current state of health and past experiences. Your customized treatment plan goes far beyond manual and instrument adjustments. By incorporating lifestyle, nutritional and supplement advise our chiropractic care is all about a healthy life plan.  To learn more about chiropractic adjustments click here.

How soon can I expect results?

Every patient recovers at their own pace. Depending on the nature of the problem, it is possible for some patients to experience immediate relief. Others discover that the healing process can take several days, weeks or even months. Remember that it is often a lifetime of accumulated spinal and neurological stress contributing to your problem. Factors which can affect the healing process include your overall health condition, your age, muscle tone, diet and lifestyle, and in some cases even attitude towards healing.

Massage

Before Treatment:

After completing a detailed health history form, your massage therapist will ask you some general questions to determine if there are any health conditions which need to be addressed, and to establish what areas of your body you would like worked on.

During Treatment:

After completing a detailed health history form, your massage therapist will ask you some general questions to determine if there are any health conditions which need to be addressed, and to establish what areas of your body you would like worked on.

Depending on the technique your massage therapist feels will be most effective for your problem, you may be required to fully or partially undress (for a full body massage, most people undress leaving their underwear on). Your massage therapist will give you privacy to do this, and will ask you to lie on the massage table under a sheet and blanket once you are changed. You will remain securely draped throughout the entire treatment, while only the particular area being worked on is exposed (back, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and abdomen).

A variety of massage techniques will be used, depending on your situation. Generally these include various stroking and kneading techniques, as well as light stretching and manipulation of the muscles and tissues. Your therapist will balance the amount of pressure used according to your comfort level.

After Treatment:

At the end of your treatment, your massage therapist will ask you to change (providing full privacy once again). They will then recommend a program of care specific to your needs. This usually includes further massage therapy sessions until the condition of your muscle and tissue improves, as well as maintenance sessions to keep your muscles and tissues healthy.

Acupuncture  

What to expect on your first visit:

A very thorough assessment will happen at your first appointment. This will give the acupuncturist a very accurate look at your symptoms and conditions, and at your overall constitution.

During Treatment:

A very thorough assessment will happen at your first appointment. This will give the acupuncturist a very accurate look at your symptoms and conditions, and at your overall constitution.

Treatment starts by laying either on your back or stomach (depending upon the condition). Needles will be inserted where deemed appropriate and will be retained for up to 30 minutes (again depending on the condition.) An infrared heat lamp may be added to aid in the therapy. It is most helpful if the patient can relax fully during the treatment.

Although the treatment is generally without pain, if anything becomes painful or uncomfortable please tell your acupuncturist who will discuss any and all concerns about the treatment with you.

After Treatment:

You may feel tired, or energized after a session. Your reaction will depend upon your condition.

You may notice a small drop of blood at one or more of the needle sites and a small bruise could develop. These should not be harmful, but please talk to your acupuncturist if you are concerned.
