Chiropractic Care

person having shoulder adjustedWhen a new patient comes to our practice in pain, Dr. Mike tries to determine which of these categories the problem falls into:

  • Mechanical—joints not functioning as they’re supposed to; jammed or arthritic
  • Alignment issues put a disproportionate amount of stress on the joints
  • Muscular problems
  • Repetitive use injuries
  • Muscular imbalances
  • Deconditioned muscles
  • Sprains/strains
  • Nerve pinch or burning numbness
  • Pain that is referred/radiates from point A to point B

While there are always exceptions, any issue that doesn’t fall into one of these categories will probably be referred to another provider for care.

Tools, Techniques, and Therapies

Every patient is unique, and so is your care. Dr. Mike is skilled in various techniques and determines what will provide a patient with the best outcome based on his assessment of their condition.

His primary adjusting technique is full spine Diversified, the most widely used technique worldwide. If a patient is unable to tolerate manual manipulation methods, Dr. Mike uses the ProAdjuster™ tool, which allows for gentle adjustments without any twisting, cracking, or popping. It is also appropriate for children and seniors.

Other methods include PNF stretching, Active Release Technique (ART)®, Graston®, and other techniques. Dr. Mike uses these to work dysfunctional or imbalanced muscles to help strengthen weak and inhibited areas.

Relief and Restoration

Your care plan is designed to relieve pain and restore function to the systems in your body as quickly as possible. While the amount of time will vary for each individual, Dr. Mike generally follows a 12-week cycle for chronic problems. That could be auto accident care, work injuries, disc problems, or other severe issues.

Recommendations for care consider several factors: age, level of health, how long the problem has been there, any disease or illness, and even your type of work. Any of these can make the frequency or duration of care change. Most people will start at 2 to 3 times a week.
