Curriculum Vitae

Our Uniqueness

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."  ~ Thomas Edison


The approach we take goes beyond traditional chiropractic treatment. Unlike conventional chiropractic care (which is centered heavily around hands on spinal adjusting) we take a more balanced, comprehensive approach.

Musculoskeletal & Nervous System Problems

What makes us unique is our determination to find the specific cause of pain (pain generator) unique to each patient and then customize treatment accordingly. Once the pain generator has been identified in a patient, we take a "holistic" view of the pain. We know that the painful region of the body DOES NOT work in isolation from the rest of the body. Treatment plans are created to specifically address the specific tissues creating pain.

Treatment plans involve all the areas of the body linked to the painful region. Pain and dysfunction in the body is multifactorial. That is why there is rarely a single "magic bullet" that will end the pain.

"The restoration of function is more important than the relief of pain." ~ Craig Liebenson, DC

Depending on the nature of problem, the treatment plan may consist spinal adjusting or other types of manual therapy, modalities, in clinic and home rehabilitation, diet modification and lifestyle modifications. Also, we make referrals to other appropriate providers if co-management is needed.

Finally, we believe that having the same, generalistic, cookie cutter treatment plan for every patient is not effective. "Non-specific treatment, for non-specific pain, leads to non-specific results". Thus every patients treatment plan is unique for them and their condition.
