A Place of Honesty, Caring and Excellence

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by and checking me out.  If you are like the vast majority of people, you have never been to a chiropractor before, and you are very skeptical.  I get it and I don’t blame you. I would be skeptical too if I only knew what I’d heard from my doctor, the press, or someone who had a bad experience with a chiropractor.   I have a lot of patients who were once just like you.  However, now those once skeptical folks say they wish they’d gotten help years sooner, and now they tell others about how much they have been helped.

Tell me if  I’ve got this straight.  You want a doctor to listen intently to you. You want a doctor to be honest, and if you can be best helped somewhere else, you don’t want the doctor to waste your time, but to refer you to the professional that can best help you.   You want a doctor to honor you by explaining, to your satisfaction, what your problem is and what the best treatment options are.  You don’t want a cookie cutter approach to care.   You want a doctor who is just as concerned about saving you money as you are.  You want the doctor to treat you exactly like he or she would want to be treated if the doctor was the patient.

How’s that?  In a nut shell, that is what I strive to do with each and every patient.  I understand that I work for you.  I do not know it all, and I have no trouble telling a patient when I am not sure about something, or when they could be better helped by another professional.   I understand that the most valuable thing in my relationship with my patients is TRUST.  I understand that trust is something earned, so I treat my patients in a way that they will consider me worthy of their trust, and I honor that trust in every way, with every patient.

​Whether its treating neck pain or diabetes my approach is the same.  Find out what is causing the problem and fix it.

With painful neck and back conditions I evaluate the entire musculoskeletal system.  Often these painful problems are a result of more than one component of the  musculoskeletal system not working right.  I get many patients who have been to one or more other doctors without finding relief.  Usually what has happened is that the other docs correctly treated PART of the patient’s problem but completely neglected another dysfunctional component.  As a result the patient either experienced partial relief or no relief at all.  Every part of the musculoskeletal system is as important as another because they work together.  Just like baking a cake, every ingredient is important if you want to get a delicious dessert.  I find that if we identify and address every aspect of the patient’s problem we get excellent results.

More and more often, my patients are asking for help with all kinds of health issues.  Increasingly people are seeking non-drug solutions to all of their health problems.  I can hear you thinking, ” what can a chiropractor do for high blood pressure or diabetes or chronic fatigue syndrome?” I understand the question and I think you might be surprised by the answer.  The way a chiropractor can help a problem like diabetes is the same way he or she helps painful neck or back conditions.  Analyzing each component of the body as it relates to the patient’s condition, and treating what is not right, is how a chiropractor (or any other kind of physician for that matter) can help any disease you can think of.  New state of the art testing now makes it possible to scientifically discover the actual causes of disease, so that those root issues can be addressed and fixed. Take high blood pressure for example.  It doesn’t make sense that someone who’s had normal healthy blood pressure for years all of a sudden begins to suffer their blood pressure climbing to dangerous levels. There must be a reason for it, something that has caused the blood pressure to rise.  Drugs can lower the pressure, but will do nothing to fix the cause of the high pressure.  High blood pressure can come from problems in the kidney, liver, gall bladder, thyroid, blood vessels, nutrient imbalances or deficiencies, sugar handling problems, heavy metal toxicity, bacterial or viral infections, psychological disorders, skeletal, allergies or food sensitivities, dehydration and hormones.  When I have a patient with high blood pressure, I use a Functional Medicine approach to guide me to find the causes of the high pressure so we can treat it properly.  You can read more about what Functional Medicine is HERE.

This web-site should give you a good idea of what kinds of things I can help you with.  I am constantly writing new things and putting them on this web site to educate my patients.  Check out the reviews my patients have written about me on Google and Here.  There are a couple of easy ways you can receive my articles free.   You can just enter your email up there on the right under “News”.   I also have everything integrated into social media tools out there like Facebook, Twitter and Linked-In, so if you are into that stuff let’s connect.  I would love to hear from you!   If you would like to contact me for any reason, I am very accessible so please don’t hesitate.
