Vertebral dysfunction directly or indirectly causes irritation to the joints, ligaments, muscles or nerves throughout the body. Through the use of high-velocity, low-amplitude, specific and safe spinal "adjustments”, the Doctor of Chiropractic is able to relieve the pressures exerted on these structures and restore proper spinal function with the purpose of optimizing health.

Prior to the initiation of any treatment, a comprehensive health history and examination will be performed to assess and evaluate each individual patient. The initial consultation and examination involves a postural, functional, neurological, and orthopedic evaluation, as well as advanced imaging, if required, to identify the cause.

After identifying the cause, the first phase of care begins. This involves pain management and correction of aberrant joint function and soft tissue abnormalities. With multiple treatment approaches available and/or modalities, the Doctor of Chiropractic begins to relieve nerve interference and promote healing.

The second phase of care consists of rehabilitation to promote stability and prevent a reoccurrence of the injury. This is achieved through postural retraining, stretching, strengthening, and muscle re-education. Each rehabilitation program is individualized so that the patient begins to take an active role in their care and decrease the likelihood of a chronic issue arising.

Finally, the continuum of care shifts to a preventative nature. It is at this time that periodic spinal evaluations are performed to identify and correct any joint dysfunction before it becomes problematic. The patient continues their home exercises and rehabilitation is monitored to assure that stabilizing exercises are performed correctly.
