Our goal is to restore function while improving quality of life of patients in Georgetown and the surrounding areas through wellness care in order to attain and maintain that health.
Typically, what brings patients into our clinic is an underlying interference to their nervous system that presents as one of these symptoms:
low back pain
Each patient undergoes a thorough history intake and detailed physical examination to determine the best way to remove those interferences-in the most natural and gentle way possible so they can achieve and maintain optimal wellness as well as preventing the return of their symptoms.
Dr. April is also a Certified Medical Examiner and can perform DOT exams.
An adjustment is something unique to chiropractic. It refers to the doctor applying manual pressure to a specific segment of the spine, pelvis, or extremity to remove any restrictions to the nervous system causing unwanted symptoms of disease or dysfunction.
The nervous system controls the entire body and these disturbances inhibit the nervous system from functioning properly.
The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to: reduce nerve root interference, remove pressure on a joint/disc, and improve communication to organs in need of healing.
This in turn enhances flexibility, function, and most importantly-quality of life.
Our clinic offers a multitude of therapies designed to speed up healing and get you back to (or continue) living your best possible life.
Hydromassage therapy reduces muscle tension and improve circulation, as well as intersegmental traction that helps restore mobility to restricted segments of the spine.
Muscle stimulation causes the nerves to relax the irritated muscles-reducing pain levels.
Ultrasound therapy breaks up scar tissue and decreases swelling and inflammation.
Dr. April is a Certified Kinesio-Taping Practitioner and uses kinesio-tape to improve muscle function and athletic performance.
She is also M1 & M2 certified in Graston Technique which utilizes stainless steel instruments to break up scar tissue and activate the healing cascade of damaged soft tissues.
