Attaining good health is the responsibility of both the doctor and the patient and we feel that to achieve this, mutual confidence is important. With this end in mind, we offer an initial courtesy consultation so we can discuss and evaluate your health needs to decide how a course of chiropractic care may help you.Our first goal is an accurate diagnosis. We will look for the cause of your problem rather than just treat the symptom, for without correcting the cause - the symptoms will reappear.On your way to improved health, our second goal is to reduce pain, increase ranges of motion, break up muscle spasms, decrease inflammation, and speed up tissue repair in order to return you to your active lifestyle.Chiropractic care corrects a serious form of nerve stress caused by distortions in your spine and structural system. Commonly called a pinched nerve this stress is known as a subluxation. In reality, it is a nerve or set of nerves that are under pressure or damaged from physical injury or structural misalignment. The pressure can cause stretching of the nerve, compression or constriction of the nerve.Subluxations can cause physical and mental/emotional malfunction. They are often associated with loss of energy, a variety of pains (burning, sharp, shooting/radiating, "pins and needles"), weakness and disease of all types.Causes of subluxations include physical, chemical or emotional stress or trauma. Physical causes include herniated, bulging,or degenerated discs, compression of a nerve at a joint or vertebrae, prolonged cramped posture, arthritis, repetitive motion on the job or in sports, prolonged sitting etc.Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to specifically detect and correct problems associated with the neuromusculoskeletal system. Patients who have suffered for many years have found amazing improvements even from chronic problems using Koren Specific Technique (KST).I am honored to have a chance to work with you, your family and your friends. Thank you for the privilege of sharing your wonderful and healing journey!
