Symptoms are not disease Would you ever pull the fuse for the check engine light in your car? Seems like a bad idea, right? And yet people are doing that all the time throughout the country. They aren’t doing it to their cars, but they are doing it to their bodies....
I workout frequently, and when I do I train hard. I like to talk about these achievements, not as any sort of bragging, but because I am proud of my accomplishments, and love to share with other people what I’m up to. Recently I was sharing about a new personal...
I had the honor and privilege of taking care of someone who was dying of cancer recently. When they came to me at the start of care, they had already been under treatment for some months. They had great energy and enthusiasm. By the last time I saw them, they were...

At this time, Chiropractors are recognized federally as being essential healthcare workers. We offer a way to help people in pain stay out of the urgent care centers and emergency rooms that could become overcrowded right now. That’s always a good thing!
During the two weeks we were closed to all but emergency patients, we’ve changed our procedures to ensure physical distancing in our community and are implementing the following precautionary measures.
1) The doctors will be seeing only one person at a time for shorter appointment times.
2) Families may come together.
3) We will be disinfecting the tables between each and every appointment.
4) We will be cleaning the office on an hourly basis, including commonly touched areas like handles and table tops.
5) DO NOT come to the office if you are experiencing (or have experienced up to 5 days prior to the day of) a fever, cough, have difficulty breathing, or have come into contact with someone who tested positive for corona virus.
6) PLEASE arrive ON TIME for your appointment. Given the shortened appointment times, we have even less flexibility than we would otherwise, and if you are five minutes late, we may have to reschedule.
7) Masks are available upon request.
8) Every patient must fill out a quick survey regarding their status before each and every appointment. It will be sent by email the day of your appointment.
9) We will be taking the temperature of every patient during every appointment.
Thank you for your understanding during this difficult and constantly changing times. If you would prefer to stay home during this time, we totally understand. Please feel free to contact the office at 253-383-0577 if you have any questions or concerns.
