There are several reasons to see a chiropractor and others that seem more traditional.

Neck pain, headaches, migraines, “crick in the neck”, dizziness, vertigo, shoulder pain, frozen shoulder, mid-back pain, low back pain, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, sciatica, pelvic pain, TMJ disorder, bedwetting in children, tennis elbow, cubital tunnel syndrome, all of which can be associated with nerve irritation.

Misalignment of a vertebra can result in pressure and inflammation around a nerve causing disruption of the normal function of the nervous system. This dysfunction can play a major role in a variety of symptoms and pain that present in many different ways. We seek to find the cause of the your symptoms rather than to treat the symptoms themselves.

Dr. Thigpen tells his patients, "as much as it takes to get it right, and as little as possible to maintain peak performance."

The frequency of care can vary depending on patient needs and goals.

Patients look forward to their next visit after feeling improvements and experiencing a better quality of life.

Most patients would say no. Especially the atlas orthogonal treatment. It looks like it may, but most of the time you don’t even know an adjustment is made. The pressure on your spine is so targeted that little to no pressure is felt.

If you are getting a full spine or extremity adjustment you may feel this more; however, most adjustments are comfortable. Depending on the level of inflammation or acute pain, our doctors can scale their adjustment and technique to limit discomfort.

To see is to know. Our doctors use x-ray imaging to gain a better understanding for a more efficient analysis and diagnosis of the skeletal system.

Chiropractic care isn’t just needed to respond to symptoms. Regular visits improve and maintain proper alignment biomechanics of the body, resulting in better range of motion, better posture, and, therefore less injuries. Our doctors and staff encourage our patients to pursue optimal health rather than the absence of pain.

Yes! Chiropractic is safe and effective for pregnant women. Regular chiropractic adjustments and care can help mom maintain pelvic balance, meaning the baby has enough room to move into that ideal head-first delivery position. 

Chiropractic care is proven in clinical trials to help whiplash patients with acute pain and decrease the long-term consequences of MVA injuries.

It is important to note that even in automobile accident cases where there is no significant new personal injury, patients may experience a relapse or exacerbation of an old condition. If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident, we recommend prompt consultation and examination.

Chiropractic care is for children of all ages. Our doctors have seen babies only days old through their teen years.

With our food options today, it is very difficult to eat well enough to maintain optimal health.
