Laying the foundation for total health

In some ways, one could say that Chiropractic care is a bit like building a house – certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and Chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body’s foundation then that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With Chiropractic care, your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care…

Phase 1:
Relief Care

Thumbs Up to Relief

Phase 2:
Corrective/Restorative Care

Teaming Up for Optimal Health

Phase 3:
Wellness Care

Maintenance is Key to Healthy Living

Dr. Mary Patterson

Dr. Mary Patterson

Principle Chiropractor

I am Dr. Mary Patterson and I use chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient’s lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. I take a ‘whole person’ approach to chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms.

Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and my aim is to be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic care plan to suit each patient’s individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled Chiropractors, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.

Associate Chiropractor

I am Dr. Chad Esaiah a New Zealand trained Chiropractor with 18 years of experience. My purpose in practice is to help you achieve the balance and vitality you need to enjoy vibrant health and productive longevity. I recognize the inherent ability of your body to heal itself, and for that process to occur properly and completely, the body requires that it be free of interference.

It is my mission to reduce a major source of interference(within the spine and other joints of the body called a subluxation) to the smallest degree so your body can begin to reorganize, regenerate and heal on a much deeper level so you can achieve even greater potential and performance in all areas of your life. This is why many professional teams and athletes get adjusted regularly by their chiropractor. You don’t have to be a professional athlete to enjoy the benefits of chiropractic adjustments. You deserve to have your body perform at its best no matter what level of sport you play or how old you are or what type of work you do. You deserve to be performing at your best.
