Chiropractic Therapy and Service.

Considering chiropractic care as your first option will give your body the best chance to heal what ails it.  The body’s own doctor knows what is best, and it is this doctor that should be consulted first.  Chiropractic care opens up the lines of communication to this innate doctor, it is therefore, the best first step you can take in the healing process.

People often come to see us for help with the following:

  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Bulging discs
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Migraines
  • Headaches
  • Pinched nerves
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • TMJ syndrome
  • Pregnancy discomfort
  • Colic
  • Infantile disorders

In fact, after an extensive study of all currently available care for low back problems, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research—a federal government research organization—recommended that low back pain sufferers choose the most conservative care first. And it recommended spinal manipulation as the only safe and effective, drugless form of initial professional treatment for acute low back problems in adults.6

“I never thought I would ever go to a chiropractor but then one day I threw out my back after spending most of the day hauling brick and landscape material. I knew Dr. Petermeier through a friend, so I gave her a call and she talked with me on the phone about my back. She scheduled me to come in that afternoon, and took amazing care of me. First she iced down the muscles and then she adjusted my mid back and my low back. I thought it was going to hurt, but it was no big deal. I felt quite a bit better right away, but she sent me home with biofreeze and told me to apply it to my back every 3 hours and to make sure I came in the next day. I did come back in, and had another adjustment, but have been doing great ever since then. I always assumed that once I saw a chiropractor I would have to go back all the time, but Dr. Petermeier made me realize that as long as I took care of my back and made sure to ice down if I overdid it, I would be okay. I have had a few adjustments over the past 2 years, and it always makes a huge difference in how I feel. Maybe that’s why people go back every month, just to feel really good! Thanks Dr. Petermeier!”
