Hello and congratulations! You’ve found St. John’s Chiropractic. If you never had chiropractic treatments before or don’t know exactly what chiropractic is about, my honest and sincere suggestion is to talk directly to a chiropractor or ask someone who has actually been to a chiropractor. There are many wonderful chiropractors out there with lots of five star Google reviews who will go out of their way to help you. I hope. 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 focus on soft tissue therapies and rehabs. Some neuromuscular injuries require only soft tissue therapies and rehabs. And some conditions require additional specific chiropractic adjustments or cold laser treatments. Therefore, I use various combinations of soft tissue therapies, specific chiropractic adjustments, cold laser and rehabs in treating soft tissue injuries including neck, low back, shoulder, hip and knee pains.
Regardless of what type of treatments is being provided, your safety and well-being are my foremost important priorities. Some patients are reluctant in receiving 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.
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.
