What should I do next?

We want to find cause of your discomfort. Chiropractic is a proven approach to treating musculoskeletal problems, including your neck, back, shoulder, hip, arms, legs, muscles and nerves.

  • Make an appointment as soon as possible. Don’t put off booking your chiropractic appointment, especially if you are in pain. There’s never a good reason to live with pain if you can avoid it. We try to accommodate walk-in patients, but it is always best to call ahead of time. If we don’t have a same-day appointment available, we will call you if another patient cancels.
  • Note any additional symptoms you are experiencing. It’s important for the doctor to know as much as possible about your health.
  • Write down any questions you may have for the doctor, even if you’ve been here many times before. Bring your questions with you.
  • Find out what insurance benefits you have.  Check whether your coverage provides for chiropractic treatment(s), laser pain therapy, customized orthotics, or spinal decompression therapy. Call us if you have any questions.

Our goal is to relieve any pain or discomfort you have as quickly as possible. Depending on your condition, you may receive one or more of the following treatments on your first visit.

  • Chiropractic Adjustment—to reduce spinal misalignment and irregular separations, with the goal of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving function
  • Spinal Decompression Therapy—a successful, non-surgical alternative treatment for relieving low back, neck pain, and radiating arm and leg pain. It can be an effective treatment for herniated or bulging discs. sciatica. and degenerative disc disease
  • Cold Laser Therapy—low-intensity laser therapy, or laser therapy that uses low levels of light to stimulate healing. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not cause your tissues to heat up. You may sometimes hear it referred to as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), low-power laser therapy (LPLT)soft laser.
  • Active Release Technique—a soft tissue system/movement-based massage technique that treats problems often due to overused muscles. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved with this technique.
