No one wants to be in pain
Maybe it's nagging neck pain that's preventing you from getting a good night's sleep or the weekly/daily headache, or you suffer from migraines. Maybe it's ongoing low back pain and bad posture from sitting at a desk all day. Maybe it's the stress and tension between your shoulder blades, that tightness that won't go away. Maybe you're feeling exhausted and have low energy. We understand that not functioning at your 100% can be frustrating and leave you feeling helpless. You're not alone.
Your body is made to heal
We believe that your body has a tremendous capacity to heal, adapt and learn. When your body is functioning properly, pain and symptoms go away. We believe in working with people and families to help them feel empowered and motivated to reach their goals and optimize their health. Your body is an amazing machine that has certain requirements it needs and we are here to help you understand and implement these requirements.
Let us Help
We look at things differently, and our fresh look at your health and your goals are our priority. Following an initial exam and assessment we will develop a unique plan designed to help you meet all of your health goals. Chiropractic care is more then just covering up your symptoms; it's about allowing your body to heal naturally.
Meet with our team to review your personal needs. Our doctor will provide a complimentary consultation to determine your unique needs and if an examination is right for you.
Once we determine that an examination is required,
the doctor will perform a neuro-structural exam.
We know that sounds complicated, but it's the best way for us to get the information we need to see how your nervous system is functioning in order to provide the right care.
The doctor will review, analyze and interpret your unique results. If we uncover a core problem, we'll develop a personalized care plan designed specifically for you to move you forward on your path to a healthier lifestyle.
WHO ARE WE?

You have NOT experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days. Symptoms can include:
a new or changed chronic cough,
a sore thorax that is not related to a known or preexisting condition,
a runny nose that is not related to a known or preexisting condition,
nasal congestion that is not related to a known or preexisting condition,

You have NOT travelled internationally within the last 14 days;
You have NOT had unprotected close contact with individuals who have confirmed or presumptive diagnosis of COVID-19 (e.g. individuals exposed without appropriate PPE in use.)
If you have experienced any of the above, I am asking that you reschedule your appointment.
Frequently asked questions
What can I expect on my first visit and how long does it take?
Your first appointment typically takes about 30-45mins. We will gather as much information as possible about your past health, current concerns and your future health goals. While every examination is different based on the person and their specific problem, there are some core tests that give us big picture data about your health. These include: postural examination, Heart Rate Variability, Surface Electromyography, Surface Thermography, Spinal Movement/Stability testing and any other relevant tests.
How many times will I have to come in?
The short answer is, we don't know. The frequency and duration of your care vary greatly but are all based on the same 3 factors:
How much will it cost?
The Consultation, Examination and Case Review is $150. The regular check up visits after that are $50. However, similar to the answer above, we can not estimate a total program investment until the comprehensive Consultation and Examination have taken place. From here, we can give you a more in depth answer, coupled with payment options that fit your needs.
Once I see a Chiropractor will I have to go forever?
Absolutely not. You are in charge of your care and decide when it starts and stops. There are no contract s here. The Doctor will always give you the best recommendations for your health but will never pressure you into anything. You should consider Chiropractic care for as long as you want to have a spine and nervous system that performs at its best.
Does getting an adjustment hurt?
It's actually the opposite. We are trained in the most comfortable techniques possible: gentle hands and touch, drop piece tables and hand held adjusting tools. Our goal is to work with your body, not against it. In many cases, people experience immediate relief after an adjustment, especially if the spine has been restricted for a long time.
Is there a minimum age restriction or any other restrictions to coming?
There is no restrictions. In many cases, neurospinal problems can develop early in life or manifest later in life. We can preform an indepth neurological spinal examination at any age. Similar to taking care of your child's teeth, it is encouraged to have your child's spine and nervous system evaluated as soon as possible. an examination does not mean care is required.
Is it safe to get an adjustment if I'm pregnant?
Absolutely. Dr. Alfredo is trained in pregnanct specific techniques to ensure that your care is both safe for your baby and effective.
