Chiropractic can make a difference in your life! We are interested in your long-term health and wellness, not just a quick fix to mask back pain or neck pain.
We are thrilled to offer many different aspects of chiropractic care.
You can expect PROMPT service! We have all been put through the dreaded hour long wait in a doctor’s reception area with year old magazines. In our clinic, you won’t have to bring a 500 page book that you will have time to read through by the end of your visit. When we make an appointment – we keep it! From beginning to end, your first visit with us will not take any longer than an hour.
The first visit is all ABOUT you!
Our priority is your health and wellness. The doctor is going to sit down with you and actually listen to your concerns. We want to know everything you can tell us about your condition. We will then do a complete exam to learn as much as possible about your condition. Why? Because we want you to be given the personal care and expertise you deserve to achieve maximum health. This will not be a cookie cutter diagnosis or treatment. We will study your health history and tests and determine what will be best for you.

The doctor will then meet with you and go over the findings of your examination. We will determine what kind of care you need and if chiropractic is what you need. If you need something other than what we provide – we will tell you and recommend what you should do. If we can help you – we will tell you and clearly communicate what kind of care you need to achieve your desired health and wellness. By the end of this report you will enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing what is causing your health concerns and what it will take to get to the solution. No treatments will begin until you understand what is being recommended and agree with this report of findings. You can expect service not pressure.

Spinal Biomechanics in Trauma: To utilize whiplash associated disorders in various vectors of impact and whiplash mechanisms in determining pathobiomechanics. To clinically correlate annular tears, disc herniations, fractures, ligament pathology and spinal segmental instability as sequellae to pathobiomechanics from trauma. The utilization of digital motion x-ray in diagnosing normal versus abnormal facet motion along with case studies to understand the clinical application.

Spinal Biomechanical Engineering & Organizational Analysis: Integrating spinal biomechanics and pathobiomechanics through digitized analysis. The comparison of organized versus disorganized compensation with regional and global compensation. Correlation of the vestibular, occular and proprioceptive neurological integration in the righting reflex as evidenced in imaging. Digital and numerical algorithm in analyzing a spine.

Spinal Biomechanical Engineering: Cervical Digital Analysis, Digitizing and analyzing the cervical spine in neutral, flexion and extension views to diagnose pathobiomechanics. This includes alteration of motion segment integrity (AMOSI) in both angular and translational movement.
