Chiropractic Care

Whether you’re new to chiropractic or have been adjusted before, we’ll take the time to really get to know you and assess your comfort level. Chiropractic is about making sure you are functioning and adapting at 100 percent of your ability, and that looks different for everyone.

Chiropractic has many benefits, including reduced stress, better sleep, improved digestion and greater overall wellness. Our goal is to have your body functioning at its best all the time. Each of has a different level of adaptation, but we want you to be the best you that you can be.

Our Approach to Your Care

Dr. Alyssa will spend a lot of time analyzing your symptoms, your history and the results of your exam. Our doctors take great pride in finding the exact spot that needs adjusting and moving that joint in just the right direction to produce the desired outcome. It’s not enough to simply mobilize the joint. Our style of adjusting is very deliberate and methodical. This level of precision in our adjustments allows us to be extremely gentle and effective, allowing you to see a greater benefit in fewer visits.

Your Chiropractic Journey

You are unique, and so is the plan for your care. Over the course of your treatment, our goal is to transition you from corrective care to maintenance care. How long this transition takes depends on where you start! When we review you X-rays with you, we’ll discuss what a possible treatment plan could look like.

Adults take time to heal. You might start with a 12-week program and initially, come in a few times a week. As your condition improves, you’ll need to be seen less often and may eventually be seen only one each month.

In contrast, infants grow and heal very quickly and generally require no more than a few weeks. That is why we feel so strongly about starting kids off right with chiropractic care. It’s much easier to build a healthy child from the outset than to fix a broken adult.

Our Preferred Technique: Gonstead

Gonstead technique is not so much a style of adjusting as it is an overall philosophy or paradigm. A thorough analysis of nerve scans and X-rays gives us a wealth of information about your condition. Describing your symptoms may not provide us with a complete picture, but the addition of objective data helps us gain a better understanding of what’s going on.

Having this level of insight allows us to deliver a very specific, very gentle adjustment that is highly effective. Because the adjustment is so specific, it is gentler than you’d probably expect. We even use Gonstead to adjust infants.

You’ll never be surprised — we will take the time to explain everything to you before we proceed with treatment. We can always modify adjustments as necessary to address specific circumstances.
