Your Chiropractic Wellness Journey
Our approach to Chiropractic Wellness
Finish The Journey Back To Muscle Stability
Chiropractic wellness is all about working to get you back to the beginning. It is a journey all the way back to where you are stable — where you have true muscle stability. It will take consistent treatment and commitment to your health, and it will take time.
The trap of the “Quick-fix” healthcare
In this country we don’t do healthcare anymore, we do sick care. Because of this, so many suffer because of a simple misdiagnosis. Your body is one system containing many systems, and if it’s to be treated effectively, it must be treated as a whole.
Once the symptom goes away, many doctors will say, “Great! Call me back if it gets worse.”
You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.
—C. S. Lewis
“Band-aid” pain treatment isn’t enough
When treatments don’t address the interconnections in the body, all you have done is put on a band-aid instead of fully correcting the issue. All the while, you’re going further down the road of degeneration, silently causing premature aging and mechanical breakdown. We call this “band-aid” care.
It’s Not Just About a Short-Term “Feeling Better”
Many times, we see patients who are coming in for the first time and it takes 3 treatments to help them feel better. Unfortunately, as soon as the pain subsides they stop coming in.
Months later, they return in pain, but 3 treatments aren’t enough to correct the issue. Instead, it takes 8 or more treatments to relieve their pain. Once again they disappear for years only to come back debilitated with pain. They say, “Doc, I have been here numerous times, why am I not getting better?”
Proper treatment takes time and shouldn’t be divided into short bursts of pain relief followed by long periods that allow the situation to worsen. You can’t find a band-aid big enough to correct that scenario.
What you can expect in your first chiropractic visit:
We listen to you
You understand what happened to you and where you hurt. For us, understanding your situation and history is the first key to guide the healing process. Sharing your experience with Dr. Draeger is a critical part to your healing journey.
We are committed to a thorough and accurate diagnosisYour diagnosis is the key to your recovery. Many healthcare practitioners are content to assume they know your pathway back to health. Our scientific commitment is to assume nothing. We will walk you through a full examination, using X-Ray and even MRI if your injury requires it.
We help you understandOur next meeting is to help you to understand what is happening in your body. Pain in your body, especially when you don’t understand it, can be very scary. We first let you know where you are today, what your options are, and our recommendation for treatment.
We treat the cause, not chase the symptomsWe treat the entire problem. It’s not just the bone. Not just the soft tissue. Not just the nerves. The body’s systems are so interconnected — each piece must be addressed in order to correct the whole. Our techniques integrate fine-tuned spinal and extremity skeletal adjustments, high-intensity laser treatments, accurately targeted leading-edge treatments such as AtlasPROfilax.
