Care Philosophy

Located in Bremerton, Smith Chiropractic & Sports Rehab is like no other chiropractic office in Kitsap County.  Built and opened in August of 2010, our new location is designed with the care of patients in mind. To meet the demands of a diverse patient population our doctors combine traditional family chiropractic care with the latest techniques in conservative sports medicine including: active release techniques (myofascial), passive joint mobilization, therapeutic kinesio taping, flexion-distraction therapy, and strengthening exercises. All our sports medicine doctors specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders ranging from a recent traumatic event to a chronic injury.  As sport chiropractors we understand that no two people and no two conditions are the same.  We work with each patient to create a rehabilitation program that is based on each patients presenting symptoms and individual goals.

We understand that conservative care comes with limitations, therefore to optimize your care we maintain relationships with local orthopedic surgeons and other specialists in case treatment response is not ideal or the condition requires immediate referral. 

In addition, we provide massage therapy services, acupuncture treatment, biomechanical analysis of the golf swing and gait, personal training and sports performance training for individuals or teams.  Our goal is to alleviate pain, identify any underlying dysfunctions and provide the tools to prevent re-occurrence.The combination of services we offer allow us to quickly and effectively treat patients from elite level athletes and weekend warriors to those suffering from repetitive stress injuries.  Our highly skilled staff are committed to providing each patient with personalized gentle and safe care centered on the special needs of our patients, one size does not fit all.

Dr Smith had helped me leaps and bounds! I was at the point where I thought my issue was what is was and I'd need to just accept it and deal. That is definitely not the case! Dr Smith's technique is not like your typical quick visit chiropractic appointments. All of my appointments are the better part of a 1/2 hour. I can't believe the difference his treatment has made in my life and my physical well being. I have also seen Dr Reid and he is fantastic too!! I can recommend this office & staff!

Although I continually stressed that I wanted NO treatment that was not covered by Medicare (my sole income is Social Security), a new practitioner there started something unfamiliar to me (and again, I stressed NO to anything not covered by Medicare) - I didn't receive any copies of bills sent to Medicare - unusual for a doctor's office - and suddenly was surprised by a final bill of almost $700 -- for treatment NOT covered by Medicare. Then I was sent to collection.
