My staff likes to joke that I’m too talkative with my patients sometimes. But I’m always very conscious of putting my patients at ease. For someone who’s never visited a chiropractor before, chiropractic can be a foreign and sometimes intimidating concept.
Typically, I’ll start by explaining what chiropractic is about. And then I’ll describe how it’s performed. Chiropractic adjustments are very hands-on compared to most types of medical treatments.
After practicing for more than 25 years, I’ve achieved a mastery of the chiropractic techniques. But, perhaps even more importantly, I’ve learned that I need to first make sure my patient understands how the treatment can help their physical issues. I do that by answering all of their questions to their full satisfaction.
I treat patients for a wide variety of injuries. On a given day, I may work with a CrossFit athlete who’s hampered by chronic lower back pain and an 80-yearold woman who’s recently undergone minimally-invasive spinal surgery. My aim is the same in both cases: to get them back to full strength so that they can resume an active lifestyle.
My office includes a 1,200-square foot space that looks and feels more like a gym. In addition to low-force, hands-on adjustments, a treatment can also include muscle stimulation and massage, as well as stretching and corrective exercises that can eventually be transitioned to a home exercise routine.
Daily, meaningful movement is essential to our health. It’s something I appreciated as an athlete, but did not fully understand until I studied exercise science, an emerging field at the time. Chiropractic became a natural transition because it enabled me to work with other athletes. But I also realized very quickly how much I appreciated its holistic approach to healthcare.
As a chiropractor, I’m assisting the natural healing process by realigning spinal imbalances that can occur suddenly or over time. The human body is a complex machine, where seemingly unrelated parts are interconnected. Every treatment, while designed to use our natural healing ability to remedy a specific concern, is also ultimately about enabling the body to do what it’s designed to do: function at the height of its ability.
My practice welcomes referrals for most spine disorders and a broad range of traumatic injuries. And we accept most major insurance providers, as well as Medicare.
