Your Treatment at Lifestyle Chiropractic & Fitness Center

Comprehensive Care Facility

Treatment in our office takes time, but not time in the waiting room! You should never spend more than 5-10 minutes waiting for the doctor, but you can expect the average office visit to last between 30 minutes to one hour. That is because we are a comprehensive care facility. If you are interested in the in-and-out-care as seen in many chiropractic offices, we will direct you appropriately. You should also know that we work with your medical doctor and receive referrals from medical specialists regularly.

Our Philosophy

We treat the neuro-musculo-skeletal system (nerves, muscles and joints). It is our philosophy (as well as that of the medical research) is, you cannot strain a muscle without affecting the joint and you cannot injure a joint without affecting the muscle (because the muscle and joint work as a unit). Therefore, we utilize a comprehensive approach which combines specific treatments for all the components of an injury.  If you need a specialist, additional imaging (such as an MRI) or would like a second opinion… no problem we will refer you to the appropriate specialist.

Our Chiropractic Treatment

Our chiropractic treatment always includes soft tissue (massage) work to break up muscle spasms and/or scar tissue. This may include manual stretches, active/myofascial release, deep sports massage or a combination. In some cases we may add a longer 30 minute massage to your treatment to increase motion, decrease pain and inflammation. Patients should also expect a graduated home exercise program tailored to your needs and injury type. Often times we will add the use of certain modalities that aide to speed healing, aide function and decrease pain such as kinesio taping (used by professional athletes), cold laser, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, stretches and/or nutritional advice.

Other Modalities

You may receive other modalities such as cold laser which significantly speeds healing, electric stimulation to decrease pain, ultrasound to increase blood flow, moist heat or cold. Some people may be referred for acupuncture treatment in office or to our spinal decompression facility in Brentwood. In every case we will advise you regarding exercises, stretches and nutrition. If you ever have any questions feel free to ask. Unique poster

We Practice, We Don’t Preach

It’s Your Body! Every person and every injury is different. Only you know how you feel and we need your constant feed-back. If what we are doing is too difficult such as an exercise, we need to know. If we are massaging too deep or too light tell us. If you are uncomfortable with any aspect of care please tell us so that we can work with your body the way your body needs. Last, as I tell my kids… There are no stupid questions, so ask, ask, ask! You should understand what we are doing and why we are doing it, to your satisfaction.
