Chiropractic Care

If you’re new to chiropractic, this form of natural health care is about using an adjustment to retrain the spine to become more mobile. First, Dr. Stuttgen carefully examines every segment of the spine to determine if there are any nerves coming out of the spine that have pressure on them. When there is pressure on the nerves, a variety of problems can develop. These include headaches, migraines, acid reflux, numbing, constipation and more. Through the chiropractic adjustment the body can heal itself.

Discover How Much Better You Can Be

There are many benefits of chiropractic care:

  • Improves function
  • Increases circulation
  • Improves joint health
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Increases energy
  • Promotes better sleep
  • And so much more!

Techniques Used

Dr. Stuttgen primarily uses manual adjusting with Diversified. When adjusting the neck, he employs the Gonstead Technique as there is little to no rotation of the neck required. He finds that patients are relieved that having their neck adjusted is gentle and nothing to be anxious about. They often ask, “That’s it?” If someone has an area that’s particularly tight or restricted, he will use instrument-assisted adjusting.

Helping Patients Feel Comfortable

If you’ve never been adjusted before, you may be unsure of how it will feel. Dr. Stuttgen always walks and talks his patients through every adjustment. Before he begins, however, he will make sure that you feel comfortable with it. He starts by using light force.

Following the first adjustment you may feel some mild discomfort, similar to a post-workout soreness. This is a common effect, and it means that the healing has begun.
