Chiropractic Care

We specialize in locating and correcting your spinal misalignments, called ’subluxations’. This entails a very specific and detailed approach to the spine and the nervous system. Dr. Petersen has practiced 32 years and regularly utilizes 7-8 different techniques when addressing the spine. From the traditional Palmer approach to Gonstead, Thompson ‘drop table’ and Activator Methods or the ever famous ’toggle’ upper cervical approach to name a few… he can customize the approach to any spine, at any age or any condition. The key is to find the problem and remove the nerve interference… then maintain that correction over time so your body can heal… from above-down – inside – out.

Corrective Exercises

Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.

Worker's Compensation  Belfair, WA

Worker’s Compensation

Worker’s compensation is a form of insurance that replaces lost wages and pays for medical and chiropractic care for people injured on the job. Dr. Petersen has dealt with ‘on the job’ injuries for over 32 years and he’s well versed in the laws that help you get the care you need.

You pay for Worker’s Compensation insurance for this very purpose, to use it in a time of need… to receive the necessary care to treat an injury.

“These injuries may occur as a result of a slip or fall, a lifting injury or tripping over a hazard. For some workers, workers’ compensation will cover injuries that happen while the worker is driving or traveling as part of his or her work duties.

X-Rays  Belfair, WA

X-Rays

One of the most important elements of chiropractic care is diagnostics. Chiropractic radiology is a tool utilized in care as a diagnostic practice to rule out pathology (such as possible tumor or fracture) and/or an additional aid to determine where to adjust the spine. Chiropractors rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in each patient.

Chiropractic & Family Wellness

“As a twig is bent, so grows the tree”

This age old adage is so very applicable to our approach to family wellness.   One recent day in the office Dr. Brian adjusted a 100 year old woman… then stepped in the next room to adjust a one month old child. Neither patient complained of pain and symptoms;  they both simply needed an adjustment in order to clear the nervous system and improve how their body was functioning – from inside out.

This same approach to health is sought by hundreds of folks who enter our doors without symptoms, just for the sake of gaining and maintaining a higher degree of health.  People bring in their children from days old through adolescence in order to keep them healthy as opposed to waiting to treat an illness after the fact, often with harmful drugs.  Choosing regular chiropractic care is a decision in health philosophy… a way of life for your family.   Many daily decisions affect our health:  Will you take Omega 3s everyday?  Will you allow your kids to consume high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners in their diet?  Do you understand and prioritize the power of a chiropractic adjustment to maintain a clear nervous system ?

We invite you to join our family….  and make chiropractic a part of your family health care plan.

Even a “minor” crash can result in serious injuries like ligament sprains. This can lead to chronic pain and disability if not treated properly.
