Corrective Chiropractic Is Different

We believe in fixing the underlying cause of problems and not merely masking the symptoms of that problem.

Whether a patient is looking for relief from neck pain, back pain, elbow pain, headaches, migraines or relief from any other joint, muscle or nerve pain, the key is to address the problem that is causing those symptoms

If we want to truly get better, the approach should never be to just focus on the pain. Yes, there is pain, but what differentiates us from a “traditional chiropractor” is that we figure out why it is there and what Core Problem is causing it.

Unlike  “traditional chiropractors” that tend to focus on pain and Band-Aid fixes, we treat the body as a whole and see the importance of the spine and the spinal cord that it houses. Few problems occur without some dysfunction of the nervous system, which explains why our NeuroStructural Restoration Program has been so successful with our patients. 

NeuroStructural Restoration means making corrections to the spine and nervous system to improve your Structure (posture) and Nervous System Function to clear your Brain-Body Connection so that the body can function as it is meant to. If there is a joint, nerve or muscle they are connected to, we can usually fix it!

The short answer is that you don’t know! At least, you won’t know until Dr Ritza is able to understand your concerns and perform a Comprehensive NeuroStructural Chiropractic Assessment to understand the nature of your problem.

It depends! If we are able to, we will.

Formulating the perfect plan to help you reach your health goals takes time. In many cases, it is of greater benefit to our patients to compile the results of the consultation and assessment, make recommendations, and start care on a subsequent day. This helps us deliver the very best results.

If investigation through advanced imaging or x-ray is needed to help provide us with the most detailed picture of your problem, treatment cannot be provided on the first visit.

Our primary goal is to give the very best care possible, and sometimes that requires a little patience and time.

The Initial NeuroStructural Examination and Review of Results is $125. If care is necessary, you will be presented with the investment required to correct the problem and meet your goals. Subsequent checkups range from $50-60 per visit.

If you are fortunate enough to have some extended health coverage, this is a great bonus and helps to reduce a portion of your investment. Our team can issue an itemized statement of services for your insurance provider that you can submit

We always make our recommendations for care based on 5 factors

  • Your goals and objectives.
  • The results of your Comprehensive NeuroStructural Chiropractic examination.
  • How long you have had the issue(s).
  • The amount of external stressors your body and nervous system face
  • The extent of the trauma that has occurred to date.
