At Proactive Chiropractic, we take a non-surgical approach to treat disorders of the nervous and musculoskeletal system. We focus on providing spinal manipulation and treatment of areas surrounding the spine, allowing the body to heal naturally.
Starting with a thorough exam, we will investigate the low back, mid back, and neck for symptoms including heat, skin changes and spasms of the muscle. We will also check your range of motion and take a closer look at how your body moves.
With a diagnosis, we offer many different treatments for your pain ranging from simple manipulation to nutrition recommendations. We provide a treatment plan that is unique to your needs.

Everyday pain or pain that you experience after heavy activity may often be passed off as coincidental, a sign of aging or typical soreness. However, if you experience these symptoms often, or pain that is worse than normal, it could be time to visit a chiropractor.

It is common to feel some apprehension before visiting your chiropractor for the first time. However, your visit will be similar to a visit with your family physician.
Upon arrival at the office, you will fill out any needed paperwork and general forms about your health history, your family history, and current symptoms. After this is complete, you will undergo a complete physical exam.
The exam will be thorough, covering your entire body. It may include various range of motion tests, reflexes, palpitations and your muscle strength. Your spine will be examined, and so will the main area of your pain. It is possible that we may require x-rays of your spine, depending on your symptoms.
After your exam, a treatment plan will be created, focusing on your overall health, symptoms, pain, and area of pain. Adjustments will then be made to help alleviate your pain. This may include pushing, pulling, twisting or turning various joints within your body.
You will not undergo all the adjustments required in one office visit. To get the best results, you will need to return to the office over a period of time.
Aftercare is critical to the success of your treatment plan. You will receive instructions on at home exercise techniques, stretches or various other therapies to facilitate healing while at home. You will also be instructed to return should any of your symptoms worsen.
The chiropractor that you choose should have all of the qualities to ensure you have the best experience possible.
Your chiropractor should have a passion for chiropractic care, always learning new techniques and always offering the most up-to-date treatments. A chiropractor who genuinely enjoys chiropractic care will enjoy working with patients like you, creating the best atmosphere for healing and advice.
Your chiropractor should exhibit a high level of coordination when it comes to his or her own hands. Lack of coordination can result in faulty treatments and unnecessary pain for patients.
Chiropractors are involved in your health and should have a great sense of empathy and humility. To get the most of your treatment and adjustment, you will need to feel relaxed and at peace with your chiropractor. Empathy and humility can create that open space of trust.

Chiropractors are specially licensed to perform chiropractic care. This means they must have a degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic or DC. Although this isn’t the same as a medical doctor’s degree or MD, chiropractors must go through extensive training in a traditional doctorate program.
Chiropractors must learn the same curriculum that a medical doctor does to perform and interpret x-rays and blood tests to help with diagnosis. However, chiropractors study intensely about body functions, how the body’s systems work together and how to properly use adjustment treatments.

The main difference between a chiropractor and a masseuse lies within the treatment plan. A simple massage can improve your pain for a short amount of time. Chiropractors use complete treatment plans to come up with a diagnosis and a solution for that diagnosis.
Chiropractors are able to provide treatment, request x-rays, and bloodwork. In some states, chiropractors may also provide medication, if required. They also focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems such as joint pain, headaches, and tension. Masseuses cannot order testing and focus on anxiety, pain and improved circulation.
Between the two are other differences such as training and how they treat. Click here to learn more.
