Your First Visit

a 60 minute intial consultation and examination

Chiropractic care can effect your health in many positive ways by restoring free flowing movement, optimal tone, and natural ease to the body.  Its not just about back pain (although we have excellent outcomes for all types of musculoskeletal pain).  Spinal nerves coordinate most of the functions  of the human body and chiropractic adjustment can influence the way muscles, nerves, organs, and systems work as a coordinated whole..  Dr. Doucette takes time to listen to your story as this is one of the most important steps in diagnosing any condition.  A thorough exam helps narrow down the source of imbalance and interference to the optimal expression of health.  Your first visit often includes a report of the doctor's findings and an initial treatment. Each patient is treated as an individual with a specifically tailored treatment plan which may include chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue manipulation and myofascial release, rehabilitative exercises and yoga stretches, nutritional consultation, and zero balancing energy medicine. Additional diagnostic testing (Xray, MRI, etc) is ordered on an as-needed basis.

 

Regular Chiropractic Visits

Shorter Therapeutic Encounters

Once a plan of care has been established, most treatment sessions are 15 minute encounters.  Chiropractic adjustments set the body in motion and typically care consists of a short course of frequent visits to make a significant change.  The frequency of care is decreased as the body begins to hold the adjustment.   Its like putting braces on teeth...gentle force over time aligns the body and gives the supporting structures the opportunity to shift and stabilize in a more functional permanent alignment. These treatments can consist of chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue manipulation, exercises and stretching, kinesiotaping, etc.  Many patients choose regular, preventative and wellness care once they experience how much better they feel without spinal stress.  We educate and advise, you choose what care feels right for you. 

 

Zero Balancing Sessions

booked in 30 or 45 minute sessions

Zero Balancing is a leading-edge body-mind manual therapy.  It can quickly drop a person into a sublimely relaxed meditative state in which tension patterns in body and mind are easily released by the body's innate self-referencing and self-correcting mechanisms.  We all hold subconscious tension...some people in their neck and shoulders, others in their lower back and hips, often in the jaw and facial muscles.  This chronic tension ties up energy that could be used for our health and wellness and is a response to subconscious processing and mental churning (self judgement, resentment, fear, grief, unresolved anger, physical/mental/emotional trauma from the past, etc).  Patients say Zero Balancing brings them back home to their true nature, allows stress and tension to melt away, and brings peace, happiness and a long lasting sense of well-being to their lives.  

 

Nutrition Consultation

Nutri-Spec Metabolic testing and consultation

This science-based patient specific metabolic testing involves in-office analysis of saliva, urine, and physiological functions like blood pressure, pulse, respiratory rate, etc.  If a metabolic imbalance is identified, Dr. Doucette will consult with you regarding its effects on body function and health, dietary adjustments that will help correct it, and specific. nutritional supplementation  to correct the imbalance.
