ServicesWe provide spinal manipulation utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Baker has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment. , he use an adjusting style commonly referred to as “Diversified.” First, an analysis of your spine is performed. This can initially involve a case history, exam and possibly X-ray pictures or advanced imaging.
Subsequent visits may include motion palpation, with the chiropractor feeling the joints move as you turn and bend. Or, a leg check may be performed, to uncover an imbalance in the pelvis or lower spine.
With the malposition or restriction of one or more bones identified, a specific manual thrust is administered. The direction, speed, depth and angle that are used is the result of years of experience, practice and a thorough understanding of spinal mechanics.
The energy delivered during the thrust may produce a slight “popping” sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. This sound may be interesting, but is not a guide as to the value or effectiveness of the adjustment.
While improving spinal biomechanics can reduce nervous system interferences, virtually all joints of the body can be adjusted to help restore proper range of motion.
Dr Baker is very knowledgeable in his field, friendly, easy to talk with and doesn't rush with his treatments. He explains in a way very easy to understand. I have had several different issues over the past years and he has been able to relieve my pain with adjustments and some light exercise and prevented the need for surgery. I highly recommend him to everyone. I also enjoy his suggestions about nutrition.
I started coming to Dr.Baker after years of having back pain, and I wish I had seen him sooner. He is very well informed and strives to make sure that his patients understand what the source of the problem is for their pain and how to fix it through chiropractic work as well as home exercises and better postural habits. As well as being a great chiropractor, he is always friendly and his office is an inviting atmosphere. I would recommend Dr.Baker to anyone in need of chiropractic services.
