I treat a broad range of patients, from the very young to the elderly and infirm, from individuals who have acute conditions to those with chronic and/or debilitating conditions. I am certified by the State of California to teach Continuing Education courses for Chiropractors. One of my topics is The Chiropractor as a Trusted Primary-Care Physician: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Referral of Challenging Cases.
Treatments Based on Your Needs
As a Doctor of Chiropractic practices, my focus is on having a great understanding of your problems to diagnose and prescribe the proper treatment for you. Everyone is an individual, and I am interested in knowing everything that is important to know about your condition and, along the way, how you will respond to treatment. I have my office next to the hospital because I think it is very important to work within the medical establishment. I work with your medical doctors, not against them.
I vary my treatments depending on the needs of you, the patient. My manipulations vary from very light to forceful if necessary.I use the least force necessary to help your condition. I always use soft tissue work which may involve myofascial release, acupressure, trigger point, vibratory massage, stretch release and other soft tissue work. I also use various Physiotherapy modalities including ultrasound, computerized electrical therapy and vasopheumatic procedures. I always talk about home care during the treatment phase and about how to take care of the condition after treatment ends. This will include stretching, exercises, activities of daily living and ergonomic (workplace) adaptations. My goal is always to get you, the patient the most efficient treatment available. I work to give you relief, manage your symptoms and get you back to your daily activities as quickly as possible.
