I first began my own chiropractic journey as a nine year old patient with migraines. My passion to help people in pain only grew from there as I saw members of my family and community suffering from other health issues embodied in the scope of chiropractic and functional medicine. I began to see a breakdown in traditional medicine for patients who were suffering from spinal pain, fatigue, digestive complaints stubborn weight loss, as well as autoimmunity of various kinds. There seemed to be a widening gap in healthcare where the only option provided seemed to be more medication.

Chiropractic in Teller County - is it right for me?
Teller County Chiropractors specialize in the interactions between our nerves, muscles and skeleton and their effects on our general health. They diagnose problems and use manual therapy, including joint adjustment and manipulation, to prevent and treat them.

Many people who seek Teller County chiropractic care do so for help with back pain, especially lower back pain, neck pain and headache. Spinal adjustment in Teller County or chiropractic adjustment is the most common method of treatment--it refers to the manual adjustment by the chiropractor of the three-joint complex at the base of your spine with sufficient force to create a sensation of 'release', increasing the joint's range and reducing pain.

A treatment plan may involve one or more manual adjustments. Many chiropractors in Teller County also incorporate nutritional counseling, exercise or rehabilitation into the treatment plan.
How is a Chiropractor licensed?
The Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) in Teller County must complete four academic years at a school accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education, as well as a one-year internship at an outpatient clinic owned and run by a chiropractic college. They are tested and certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and licensed by the state in which they practice. To maintain licensure in most states, practitioners must complete a certain number of continuing education hours annually.
