What is Heritage of Healing?

During your first visit, you'll meet with the chiropractor to discuss and document your health history, and then he or she will perform a physical examination (focusing on the spine). It's possible, of course, that other examinations or tests, such as X-rays, may be incorporated. The decision will be made: Is chiropractic care appropriate? If so, and if the patient wishes, a treatment plan will be outlines. Follow-up visits, during which the chiropractor will administer spinal adjustments, can be scheduled — the goal being, to increase the range of motion and restore total health.

I have been involved in a car accident. Can chiropractic care help?

Musculoskeletal pain — including back pain, neck pain, and daily aches and pains are only symptoms — not the distinct cause of your pain. Pain is your body’s way of explaining, to you, that something is wrong. Pain-relieving drugs only mask — or “mute” — your body’s natural response. Chiropractic care can help you, if you have been involved in an automobile accident. Contact Dr. Dennis Schone, DC today to determine the best protocol for your particular injury.

What conditions do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors can treat musculoskeletal problems such as neck, upper- and mid-back pain, low-back pain, chronic headaches, and problems that affect the joints, muscles, and nerves. Chiropractors also treat whiplash, and many symptoms associated with motor vehicle accidents. Many people who see chiropractors use them exclusively for all their health needs. Many times chiropractors will work in conjunction the patient and the patient’s primary doctor to assure them that all of their medical needs are met.
