FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

Functional medicine means treating the whole person – structure, body chemistry, mind and mood.  I am an obsessive researcher in science and medicine. I believe in applying the latest research to understand why your body is out of balance at the root cause. and then using the least invasive treatments necessary. I have a big toolbox  and have many techniques available to discover what is causing your health issue. The first step is to listen to you. I have access to conventional and specialized lab testing.

EXTRAORDINARY CHIROPRACTIC

I am a chiropractor. I have almost 30 years of experience treating neck pain, back pain, headaches and the wide range of joint issues including shoulder pain, hand pain, knee pain, hip pain and foot pain. I have developed some unique ways of helping you heal. I like to help people learn to heal and then prevent the same problem from coming back. I think adjusting is something of an art form. There are many ways of adjusting the spine besides the traditional manual adjusting.  I try to match the adjusting style to the patient and can use very, very low force on patients who need  or want that style.
