Doctor of Chiropractic Brett McDonough believes that a person's overall health can sometimes be seen in how they treat their car. He says that when patients come to him, "they often wait until the point of crisis, as opposed to maintaining good health…True chiropractic care [is like] taking your car in every 3,000 miles to have the oil and tires checked, rather than waiting till the whole thing breaks down." He and the rest of the team at Max Life Chiropractic help patients avoid these crisis points with expert physical adjustments. Chiropractic care can minimize allergic reactions, prevent injury, and relieve structural symptoms, such as joint pain.
At initial appointments, the practitioners use an iPad application that photographs the patient and evaluates his or her posture on the spot to pinpoint problem areas. This photograph also serves as an objective measure so that along the continuum of care, both doctor and patient have an objective measure of improvement. The staff adjusts clients in open rehabilitation and treatment areas to place waiting patients at ease with a first-person account of what their treatment will be like. Aside from adjustments, remedies can include massage or rehabilitation via stretching and strengthening exercises performed in office, at home, or while waiting in line at a theme park.
