American Chiropractic Association member Dr. Adam Woods and his staff at Woods Chiropractic adjust joints, manipulate muscle tissue, and advise on rehabilitative exercises that foster health in the neuromusculoskeletal system. The chiropractic evaluation (a $100–$150 value) involves an examination of the body's framework to check for potential postural imbalances that may be contributing to physical aches related to carrying fruit baskets atop the head. To create a more in-depth picture, the body's framework is x-rayed (a $100–$150 value, depending on number of images), allowing the doctor to analyze any spinal misalignments and diagnose the appropriate corrective therapy if needed.
Asthma, migraines, and menstrual cramps are not usually ailments that prompt patients to visit a chiropractor. Yet Doctor of Chiropractic Broc Derryberry is confident he can help. Rather than immediately turn to medications, the doc invites patients of all ages and illnesses to stop into his office for a thorough consultation and exam. After reviewing a patient’s medical history, he conducts a physical, neurological, and orthopedic exam, taking notes about the spine, posture, reflexes, and joint motions as he goes and snapping any x-rays that are needed.
With this comprehensive report, he can treat a variety of bodily issues through manual manipulation of the spine. By returning the vertebrae to their normal position, adjustments can relieve symptoms beyond the typical back and neck pain. For example, Dr. Derryberry can help treat numbness, sports injuries, and even asthma and emphysema by releasing tension in the chest. And after each appointment, he and his staff provide a holistic health rundown, offering advice for exercise, diet, and nutrition, as well as a prescription for weekly bear hugs.
