I've been providing outstanding chiropractic care in Poulsbo since 1986. If you have back or neck pain, headaches, sleepless nights,
or any number of other health issues, I can help. I tell my patients to ask me about anything- if it involves muscles, joints, or the nervous system, I probably have a way to make it better.
Even if you've been
"everywhere else", I can help you. I use advanced techniques acquired in postgraduate seminars, and I've developed some of my own. I apply those techniques with talent, skill developed over decades, and exquisite touch. In two weeks of recommended care, you'll feel the value of chiropractic practiced at the level of art.
How To Choose Your Chiropractor
Would I like for you to choose me as your chiropractor? Of course I would, but only if your needs and my work fit together properly.
There are as many varieties of chiropractic as there are chiropractors- selecting a chiropractor is not a "one size fits all" proposition. One of the great strengths of the chiropractic profession is that innovations occur constantly as practitioners develop better ways of accomplishing the goals of chiropractic. Each doctor adopts techniques which are compatible with their personality and worldview. To get the best possible results, take responsibility for finding a chiropractor who fits with you and your needs.
How I Work
I do chiropractic adjusting by hand, not with an instrument. The key to chiropractic, and my focus, is the correction of subluxation. My adjusting is very precise and very fast. By encouraging your body to relax during the adjustment, it can be amazingly light, but still highly effective. Yes, the adjustment does often result in a popping sound- details here. If the sound really bothers you, I have other techniques that can be used.
Integral to my practice is the use of Applied Kinesiology.
Muscle testing allows me to determine exactly what needs correction in
your body in more detail than any other approach offers. I not only
correct the subluxation, but also balance the muscles and the nervous
system to create a lasting improvement in your overall health.
I'm not a 'bells and whistles' chiropractor. No color computer printouts or expensive machines here. I do use a special table that helps me apply precisely controlled traction to the low back. My most powerful computer is inside my skull, and my most sensitive diagnostic tools are my hands. I do an extensive orthopedic, neurological, chiropractic and kinesiological exam at the first visit, and x-rays are not taken unless indicated.
