Our Services

For many, Chiropractic Healthcare is synonymous with spine care in general and spinal manipulation in particular. It is true that the treatment that Doctors of Chiropractic provide is frequently utilized for its effectiveness in the alleviation of spinal pain. However, the comprehensive care that we provide in our clinic is designed to address issues throughout all regions of the human frame.

Metabolic problems which are commonly overlooked (or medicated) in most health care settings are addressed in our clinic with rational, scientifically based, nutritional and lifestyle modifications.

This approach emphasizes correction of the causes of health issues versus the masking of symptoms in and of themselves. This often results in a more authentic wellness outcome.

Many safe, natural and effective approaches are offered in our clinic including: skilled manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, dietary and nutritional supplement prescription, acupuncture therapy and lifestyle modification. Skilled application of these conservative approaches often leads to a legitimately healthier and more robust human constitution, as opposed to one which is perpetually dependent on pharmaceutical intervention or surgical technique.

Following are some of the essential services that we provide in our office along with a description of the methods we utilize to help our patients.

1. Pain Reduction and Elimination

2. Functional Restoration

3. Whole Body Wellness Care

  • All truth passes through three stages.
    First it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self evident.

    Arthur Schopenhaur

  • Readiness to change precedes all education and intervention.

    G. Lorimer Moseley

  • To be effective, treatment must somehow reach and reverse the painful process at its source in a lasting fashion. If one is not successful reversing the pain-generating disorder, it will persist, allowing pre-existing psychological disorders to become operative, flourish and even dominate.

    —James Cyriax, M.D.

  • Pain is, in essence, a message; a primordial signal which prompts behavioral change.
    This message is, with rare exception, purposeful, protective, and profound, however cryptic and difficult to decipher it may be.
    Seek not to mute the message in and of itself thereby enabling its basis, but rather to understand its significance, heed its warning, and rectify its cause.

    —Dr. Woodruff
