Chiropractic is a scientific, well established health care system - but it is not medical care. I am concerned with your health, not symptom management or pain control. “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” (Definition of health by World Health Organization)
I have a traditional chiropractic philosophy that “the body heals itself … therefore the doctor’s task is to remove the interference.”
The “interference”, more often than not, is caused by pressure or irritation of the nerves from “subluxations”
According to the Association of Chiropractic colleges subluxation is “A complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health.” Like cavities in our teeth we rarely feel the onset of subluxations.
My most powerful treatment is to correct subluxations through chiropractic adjustments - So that’s what I do!
I hold an “Advanced Proficiency Rating” from Activator International. That means an independent doctor checks and critiques my technique every year. I have been doing this since 1998.
My recommendations about when you need to be seen are based on 28 years of practice. I know you have other commitments, but understand this; since you hired me to help you to stop your problem from interfering with your life and perhaps shortening it I feel obligated to do a professional job and not mislead you.
I have obligations and duties aside from this practice, therefore;
My regular days are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
I am committed to being available to patients so I will make special arrangements to see them on days I am “not in the office”. This includes holidays and zombie apocalypses .
I do not have a staff so:
I answer my own phone and texts.
Please leave a message. I should answer you within an hour. If you don’t hear from me by then try again. (There is a good chance that I might not retrieve messages on Sundays till the afternoon.)
I do my own billing.
