Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is about normalizing the performance of your nervous system that controls all functions in your body. When there’s interference in the nervous system, your body can’t work optimally. By removing that interference, through an adjustment, eating less sugar, or relaxing, so the stress isn’t there, your “engine” can run much smoother and fire on all cylinders.

What Are Some Benefits?

Think in terms of going from dial up to broad band. Can you use dial up to get onto the internet? Yes. But most of us would really rather live our life and work utilizing the many advantages of broad band. Our goal and more importantly our ability is not just to get you back to feeling good (dial up) our goal and ability is to help you get to your optimal health (broad band) which many of us have not experienced in a very long time if ever.

The New Patient Journey

featured-banner_new-patientsIf you come in with extreme acute pain, you may receive an adjustment that day. Otherwise, we usually wait for the report of findings to determine the frequency of care. We use a pain scale at Chiropractic Plus. If your pain is less than a 5, we will see you once a week for 3-4 weeks until we feel that we’ve stabilized the problem. Then, we’ll start spacing the visits out to 2 or 3 weeks.

If your pain is acute (5-10), then we might see you a few times a week to reduce that pain level. After 10 or 12 visits we do a re-exam using the EMG, HRV and thermal scans to re-evaluate what sort of progress we make. Lastly, we’ll set new goals for wellness or maintenance depending on where you are on the scale.

Our Techniques and Services

Some patients prefer a more vigorous adjustment while others prefer a lighter force. The good news is that we offer both! If a technique is not comfortable let Dr. Ohlman know and he’ll make a change either way.

In addition to chiropractic adjusting techniques, we offer muscle testing techniques, massage therapy and custom-fitted orthotics, and carry a line of Standard Process® whole food supplements.
