Chiropractic care is for the whole person, as well as, a specialty for relief of neck and back pain. It also encompasses more because patient’s lives are complicated. Consideration of how injuries happen, the state of one’s health, a persons stress level, lifestyle practices and more, all influence the diagnosis and treatment of people, not just conditions.
Treating a ninety year old for arthritis pain is just as important as adjusting the spine to improve mobility and flexibility for the athlete.
Not all treatment is based on pain relief. Patient’s needs are important and sometimes you need a doctor who will talk to you honestly. Conversations about posture, exercise, diet, medical conditions and smoking can make treatment go better and last longer.
You want a doctor who can understand your urgency to get well because you are a hunter training for deer season, or a single mom who doesn’t want to miss work. What matters to you personally, and your long term goals, is just as important as making the swelling go down. It all matters in the bigger picture of wellness.
Over time, chiropractic has evolved to include treatment for specific conditions as well as supportive care for aging, pregnancy, and sports enhancement.

What is the matter? A thorough history and examination will be conducted at your first appointment or for any new injury or flare up. That information with be considered, along with lifestyle and contributing factors, to determine if treatment can be initiated or if further diagnostic tests like x-rays, mri’s or blood work are needed. Some people are good candidates for traditional chiropractic manipulation and treatment, other people need a more comprehensive care plan. The intensity and complexity of the individual will determine the best care for your condition.
Care. Chiropractic care may be straightforward or complex. Your goals and circumstances will be considered before proceeding with treatment. Often factors like age, arthritis, diet, exercise, smoking, medications and even attitude can make improvement go quicker or slower. Addressing these lifestyle factors are part of the overall treatent plan and goals for outcomes of care.
Repair, remodeling, healing. Getting better depends on you as much as the treatments given. Our bodies are the cumulative expression of the life we have lived and our genetics. We have what we have. As a product of our environmentwe can greatly influence our recovery by improving and stabilizing our environment.
