Your First Visit

Dr. Steve will greet you by name and make you feel welcome. He’ll spend some time talking with you to understand your health history and your current situation, then he’ll do a thorough examination. He’ll also take digital x-rays….if needed. Once he’s gathered all the information, he’ll explain to you exactly what’s going on. He’s very down-to-earth and enjoys educating patients in a straightforward way. He’ll show you your X-rays and lay out how Chiropractic Care may be able to help you.

Always respecting your goals, Dr. Steve will give you his recommendations for care, which generally include an option that is strictly for pain relief, as well as an option for longer-term corrective spinal care, if that is what the x-Rays are calling for.

Plan on about 45 minutes to one hour for your first visit.

chiropractic summary

Clearing Inflammation

Chiropractic adjustments are the backbone of what we do. However, Dr. Steve also takes time to address the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs & joint capsules). He will clear up lactic acid and any inflammation in order to to prepare the body for the adjustment. This also helps the adjustments to last longer; making the corrections more effective. Because of this thorough approach, treatments are not five-minute in-and-out appointments. Ongoing visits are typically 20-30 minutes. Of course, if you’re in a hurry, just let him know and he’ll do his best to get you out a bit quicker.

Paying for Care

Our fees are competitive, and we accept most Insurance, MasterCard and Visa. You may also use cash or your HSA (health savings account).

Some Brief Examples:

Pinched Nerves….typically a treatment or two.

Strong muscular tension…2-6 treatments on consecutive days most of the time.

Disc issues…..12 consecutive days….working through the weekends (mandatory).

Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

Our approach is centered around gentle techniques that prioritize your comfort. We use advanced equipment to ensure adjustments are safe and pain-free. Rather than relying on force, these machines utilize speed to achieve the desired effect, making the experience comfortable and effective.

Can chiropractic improve posture?

Chiropractic care can indeed contribute to improving posture. However, it requires dedication from the patient and an awareness of their habits outside of our care. Additionally, regular exercise plays a crucial role in correcting posture, alongside Chiropractic adjustments.
