Dr. Smith's Care Philosophy
As a chiropractor for over 20 years, my practice goals are to provide the best patient focused care I can. One doctor with one patient and ample time to diagnose, discuss options and treat with corrective intent. Diagnosis is the key element of any therapeutic outcome. Our goal is to accurately diagnose, consult, and correct the complaints, injuries or pathology of the individual patient. Examination, chiropractic manipulative therapy, flexion distraction, motor nerve stim, ultrasound, and low level light/laser therapy are just a few of the modalities employed too accomplish this task. Referral and co-management with other disciplines is always discussed and implemented per individual cases. Imaging/x-ray/MRI is never a prerequisite of treatment, and will be determined by patient history and examination.
