Hello and congratulations! You’ve found St. John’s Chiropractic. Unfortunately, you’ve found me because you’re in pain. Whether it’s your hips, shoulders, knees or low back, the pain is still there. If you never had chiropractic treatments before, don’t know what chiropractic is about or perhaps even be leery about chiropractic treatment, my suggestion is to talk directly to a chiropractor or ask someone who has actually been to a chiropractor. There are many wonderful chiropractors with lots of five star ratings and reviews including me. LOL!!! Anyway, welcome to St. John’s Chiropractic if you haven’t left already. I’ve been practicing chiropractic in my small and cozy office since 2000.
Chiropractic is not about spinal manipulation. It’s not about snap, crackle and pop. That’s Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal. To me, chiropractic is a branch of health care specializes in neuromuscular disorders. Although most chiropractors use spinal adjustments in treating neck pain, low back pain, shoulder pain, etc., many of these neuromuscular pains and disorders can also be treated with soft tissue therapies.
In my practice, I prefer to focus on soft tissue therapies. Many neuromuscular injuries and pains involving the neck, low back, shoulders, hips or knees can also be relieved with soft tissue treatments. If the condition requires additional specific chiropractic adjustment then I would adjust the area only if the patient is comfortable with it.
Regardless of what type of treatments is being provided, your safety and well-being are my foremost important priorities. Some patients prefer soft tissue therapies and don’t want chiropractic adjustment. And in some patients, chiropractic adjustments are not suitable. Your safety and comfort are never compromised. It is what you prefer and feel comfortable with that count.
Although the major of the patients sought my treatments either referrals from other patients or from a few local medical physicians, there the occasions where people ended up in my office because they’ve tried everything already. If you continue to get knee pain, shoulder pain, hip pain or whatever ails you despite receiving treatments and exercises, the solution to relieve your pain and fix the problem have not been discovered. You can either give up and continue living with chronic pain or try something different and new. There is a solution for everything. You just have to find it. Take care and best wishes.
