Chiropractic is a health care discipline that focuses on helping people with their back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pains and symptoms.

The defining characteristic of our approach to chiropractic is that we focus more on teaching you what you can do to fix your problem rather than on the chiropractor “fixing” you.

The reason for this is that most spinal pain is the result of tissue overload. That is, you have back or neck pain because you have done something or are continuing to do something that your spine cannot handle.

Therefore, the solution or ‘fix’ for your pain is to remove and/or avoid what is causing the pain in the first place and to increase the strength/robustness of your spine. This is often accomplished by coaching you in various movement and posture strategies that allow you to avoid the irritating or damaging movements and postures and by teaching you various exercises that increase your spine’s resilience.

Chiropractic care at our clinic begins with a comprehensive initial consultation.

This initial consultation can last upwards of 2 hours. By the end of this consultation, Dr. Jared will have a thorough understanding of your condition. He will then explain to you what he believes is causing your pain and how you can overcome it.

The follow-up visits will likely include a combination of movement and posture strategies (tips and tricks that you can use to minimize aggravating your pain) and rehabilitative exercises (exercises that you can perform to increase the resiliency and robustness of your spine). PulStar adjustments may also be performed (explained more fully below). The specific number of follow-up visits that will be necessary varies from patient to patient.

What is the PulStar?

PulStar MIT (multiple impulse therapy) is a chiropractic adjusting technique that merges computer technology with spinal motion analysis and adjusting.

It offers a gentle and effective alternative to the popping, cracking, or twisting that is generally associated with chiropractic adjustments. It involves using a handheld instrument which is connected to a computer to apply the required adjustments to the various regions of your spine. It provides real time feedback on the effect the adjustments are having on your spine. The treatment is performed with you in a relaxed seated or front lying position.
