- Chiropractic care for children, kids and teenagers (especially those who compete in volleyball and soccer (shoulders, knees and ankles are always a problem

We especially have great success in using chiropractic treatment for people who:
- have struggled with a chronic condition for years and thought they couldn’t get better.
- have lost hope or they think they just have to accept certain things as they age.
- would just be happy with not getting worse. It’s a joy for me to experience their surprise and happiness as they get better!
Many of my practice members have experienced improvements in anxiety, fatigue, pain, stiffness, flexibility, headaches, migraines, knee issues and TMJ.
Sorry, we do not accept insurance for chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic care for elderly patients is a specialty that I do not focus on. I recommend Fresno chiropractor Dr. Matthew Scott.
Chiropractic saved my life
And then it drastically changed it.
When I was 16, my dream was to become a professional dancer.
That summer, I was water-skiing at Pine Flat Lake when the bottom of my waterski hit a submerged tree stump and I was thrown forward, hard! I rolled three times on top of the water before landing on my face.
When I was pulled from the water I was in shock. But my tough, military veteran father didn’t see me fall and still expected me to help load the boat.
I was too proud to say anything, but when I hobbled through the door, my mother was shocked. I couldn’t stand up straight, my right side was excruciatingly painful and I could barely walk.
My panicking mom was taking me to the doctor, no question, but she gave me the choice: medical doctor or chiropractic doctor?
I was terrified of needles, so all I wanted to know was if a chiropractor gave shots or not. While fears usually don’t serve us well, this one did! My eyes were opened to the body's ability to heal without drugs or surgery!
I recovered and I’ve led a very active life, including competitive West Coast Swing dance. I’ve never needed neck surgery from that accident and I don’t expect to ever need it.
How chiropractic works
Every moment, there is a constant stream of information traveling down from your brain to your body and then up from your body back to the brain again.
Every joint in your body has sensors that continually give feedback to the brain about its position and movement. The brain then gives instructions back to the joint to make changes so it can function. This might be optimal, or it might be a muscle spasm or stiffness in the joint.
Why? When a joint has reduced mobility, it’s like the brain hears continual “static” from that joint. Now, who likes hearing static all day long? No one that I know of! This tells your brain that something in the body is out of physical alignment - just like it knows when your body chemistry is out of balance or your emotions are out of whack.
This information is shared through your nervous system and every nerve in your body starts in your spine and ends in a muscle, ligament, tendon, skin or other soft tissue. This is why chiropractors have such a deep understanding about the musculoskeletal and nervous system. We excel at detecting and correcting these "static" problems.
Struggling with chronic pain? Feeling hopeless? Chiropractic can help.
