How long will this take?

‎"How long will this take?" Patients want to know. The answer: everyone is different; there is no set formula in my office. Some people only need one treatment & one follow-up. Others may need more. Each patient is evaluated as an individual.

Neck pain

Neck pain plagued me after five (5!) whiplash injuries in my youth. Good chiropractic care helped me live a normal life. Now it's my turn to give back, as a Chiropractor, to help my patients who come to me in pain.

Full-body balancing

Comfortable, low-force, full-body balancing---it's what I do, as an Advanced Proficiency Rated ACTIVATOR Chiropractor. It's perfect for all ages, and especially good for people who might be fearful of Chiropractic.

We depend on them, and when they hurt with every step, we start to realize how much we need them. Looks like it's going to be "knee week" in my office---several patients with knee problems. With ACTIVATOR, I make precise, directional adjustments to the knee. This, along with some rest and nutritional support, often solves the problem.

Osteoarthritis: What can ACTIVATOR Chiropractic do to help? Yesterday I treated a patient with it. I balanced his entire body, relieving joint fixations and correcting misalignments that were causing abnormal joint stresses. Getting those arthritic joints normally positioned and moving better helps relieve pain. And he'll benefit more now from daily exercise. I LOVE what I do!

Why I am a Chiropractor

Five whiplash injuries in my youth---from auto accidents, none of them my fault---led me to become a Chiropractor. Good Chiropractic care relieved my pain and helped prevent degenerative changes that might have severely limited my function later in life. I'm grateful, and I love being able to help others as a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Low Back Pain

Low back pain is often related to distortion of the pelvis. With Activator Chiropractic, pelvic distortion can be corrected quickly, and home care counseling helps this to stabilize.

Activator Chiropractic

Activator Method is my Chiropractic specialty. It's the most popular type of low-force adjusting, is very precise, and I use it to balance the whole body. I invite you to EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE of Activator Chiropractic!

Scoliosis--a sideways spinal curve--can, if caught early enough, and if related to pelvic distortion, be corrected. I've had success with this, using ACTIVATOR Chiropractic adjustments and exercises.

Kneecap Troubles

If the kneecap is misaligned, there is abnormal wear-&-tear underneath it, which can contribute to arthritis of the knee. It's easy to correct with ACTIVATOR Chiropractic, and special exercises help the correction to hold.

Neck Pain and Tension

Neck pain and tension can be a difficult cycle to break. My Chiropractic approach is to adjust misalignments, release fixations, and share home care advice: ergonomics, posture (including sleep), etc., tools patients can use on their own to get relief.
