Dr. Richard Mabanta and his team strive to alleviate the nuisance and burden of back pain, whiplash, headaches and other ailments with drug-free chiropractic techniques. But first, they tackle another common patient complaint: the scourge of the arrogant, know-it-all doctor. Dr. Mabanta and his nurses value listening, especially during their consultations. They understand that patients have the innate sense to know which remedies will agree with their particular discomfort, and they avoid the presumption that professionals know more about the patient’s body than the patient. At the same time, the team emphasizes the importance of education, introducing patients to new treatments that may not seem immediately apparent. After collaborating on the treatment regimen, the team customizes treatments to fit each client’s unique condition. While each case is different, treatments may incorporate therapeutic massages or nervous-system work, such as spinal adjustments that relieve back pain from impinged spinal cords or unrequited love for a beaded seat cushion.
