As chiropractors, we are interested in the function of your nervous system. It is quite literally the connection between your mind and your body. Due to the fact that the brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves are so fragile, the body is designed so that they are encased in hard bone. Your brain is safely protected by your skull and your spinal cord and spinal nerves are held within your spinal column.

Misalignment in your spine, called subluxation, can put pressure on your spinal cord and spinal nerves. Research at the University of Colorado has shown that the pressure of only 10mm of mercury (the weight of a dime!) will cause significant interference to the transmission of nerve impulses.

What does this mean for you?

It means that if you have a subluxation in your spine, you have interference to the connection between your mind and your body. As a result, you may experience aches, pains, illness and dysfunction.

How We’ll Restore Your Health

To help you feel better, we adjust areas of the spine and joints. There are traditional and instrument-based techniques that we do so with. These include Diversified, Pettibon and ArthroStim®. Additionally, we work on the muscles of the body and have ancillary tools to aid in your care, as well as doing physical rehabilitation.

You’ll be walked through each step of the adjustment before we begin. You’ll know exactly what to expect so you don’t feel any concerns about getting started.

State-of-the-Art Spinal Decompression

We use the Protec spinal decompression system. It’s a floating, antigravity lumbar suspension that takes you through motions that will help your back or neck. You can even have your adjustment while you’re seated for your spinal decompression.

Do you see children?

Yes. Typically, a Mom or Dad comes in, then asks if we can help their children with a certain concern. We can see all ages, including babies.

Once I start chiropractic, will I always have to go?

This is the most common question people have about chiropractic. The answer is: no. Most people realize how wonderful they feel under care and want to stay that way, just like you get regular teeth cleanings even if you don’t have a problem with your oral health. You might not know how good you can feel until after you’ve been adjusted!

Does it hurt to get adjusted?

If you have a great deal of inflammation around the joint or a fresh injury, it may be uncomfortable. It will last for just moments, however, quickly dissipating.

Does chiropractic cure?

No. Your body is what’s doing the healing. We get your nerve system working so that your body can take over and correct its own problems.

Do I need a referral from my physician?

In the state of Washington, you do not need a physician’s referral to see a chiropractor.

Do you work with medical doctors?

Yes. We can work with your physical therapist, medical doctor or any other specialist to co-manage your case.

Will I be adjusted on my first visit?

When appropriate, yes. We understand that you want to start feeling better quickly. If we need to further analyze your findings, you’ll be adjusted on your second visit.

Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Yes. In fact, some people see a chiropractor before surgery so that they heal better in the long term. You can also get chiropractic care after your surgery.

Will you suggest exercises I can do?

Yes. You’ll receive personalized exercise suggestions from your chiropractor.
