Dr. Young's mission is to provide the best chiropractic care as needed to each patient. His first goal is to address your issues of immediate pain and discomfort, and then additional problems as requested.
Dr. Young uses two main techniques called applied kinesiology and atlas adjusting. They are both gentle, low-force adjusting techniques.
Applied kinesiology uses muscle testing as a guide to adjusting and restoring function to the spine and all the joints of the body. Key disfunctional muscles are determined and treated with each adjustment.
Atlas adjusting uses a specific set of x-rays which are analyzed to determine exactly how to adjust the upper neck. The x-ray equipment is positioned with laser accuracy for precision reproduction. The instrument used is the most gentle and accurate available anywhere, and unique in the state of Kansas.
In addition to both of these techniques, Dr. Young employs corrective cervical traction, specific exercise, micro-current, acupuncture and nutritional advice.
How these techniques are applied is fully explained at the time of your first visit. The first visit is usually 45 minutes to an hour. An examination of you and your particular problem(s) is followed by discussion of recommended course of relief care. Relief care usually consists of a 2 - 6 week treatment plan at a frequency of 1 - 2 times per week to resolve pain and to restore function.
At that time, you can decide what type of care you would like to receive in the future. Some patients like to return only when they are hurting; others like to manage their health with corrective or maintenance care.
