Chiropractic Care

Essential Chiropractic Inc is a friendly community practice with an approachable staff. We welcome anyone wishing to work with a chiropractor. In our experience, informed patients tend to be happier patients so we’ll always take time to explain our procedures and answer your questions at every stage of your time with us.

What is a Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a trained specialist who adjusts bones in the spine or extremities. Our nerves often get pinched when bones are misaligned; this pinching can cause pain. A chiropractor’s main goal is to remove this nerve interference from the body, thus removing the pain. In this way, seeing a chiropractor can be an excellent way to decrease pain without the use of surgery or medication.

Our chiropractor, Dr. Foley, can talk through your options with you to see if chiropractic care would be helpful to your circumstance.

Three Phases of Care

At Essential Chiropractic Inc we approach care in three phases:

  1. Initial Relief – We address your symptoms.
  2. Corrective – We focus on correcting the issues causing your pain.
  3. Maintenance – We work to keep nerve interference away so your pain stays away.

As much as we love our patients, we ultimately hope to see you less because that means you’re feeling better!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is chiropractic care simply ‘cracking backs?’

In short, no. Chiropractors use a myriad of techniques to bring the body into proper alignment. Some of them produce audible pops or clicks in the body while others don’t. Here at Essential Chiropractic Inc we use a mixture of Thompson, Gonstead, Diversified and Activator techniques to find the best modality for your body while keeping you comfortable.

I’ve never been to a chiropractor before and I’m nervous…should I be?

You aren’t the first person to be apprehensive about chiropractic care and you certainly won’t be the last. First, you should know there is very minimal risk with chiropractic care. However, at Essential Chiropractic Inc no adjustment happens without your consent.

We have a patient first approach and want to meet you at your comfort level. Dr. Foley will uses models and pictures to explain adjustments to you before performing them.

How often do I need to see a chiropractor? Do I have to go for the rest of my life?

It depends on your body and your situation. Ultimately, we want you to need less care as time goes by. As the intensity and frequency of your pain lessens…so do your visits.

New patients can generally expect to come 2-3 times a week for 2 weeks to a month. Once you’re in the corrective phase of care, sessions will ease to every 5-7 days for about a month. And finally, when your visits are simply for maintenance, we may recommend a sessions anywhere from 3-12 weeks apart.
