Consultation, History, and Physical Examination
This is a comprehensive health examination to determine if Chiropractic is the appropriate approach to your needs. Before any treatment is rendered, the doctor must evaluate you. Time will be spent getting to know you and your health history. At this appointment any previous radiology exams done should be brought to review.
The exam will vary depending on an individuals condition and health status. This is also essential in accurately diagnosing your condition and if other exams need to be ordered (Lab work, x-rays, CAT scans or MRIs).
After a thorough examination, if warranted, your 1st adjustment can be made the same day. The doctor will discuss your condition, goals and care plan to optimize your spinal health. The intent of the Chiropractic Adjustment is to restore joint mobility delivered by the hands of the Chiropractor. This is a gentle and specific treatment delivered manually or with an instrument.
The adjustment to the affected joints help restore mobility, alleviate pain, reduces muscle tightness, and optimizes spinal health. This is a great conservative approach that embraces a holistic alternative therapy. Chiropractic care is a safe and medication free treatment for numerous musculoskeletal conditions.

Children respond favorably and quickly to chiropractic for wellness. Some children come in for help with asthma, torticollis, nursing difficulties, colic, constipation, bedwetting, ear infections, and poor posture among other things. While Chiropractic does not treat conditions or disease it restores neurological and biomechanical function to the spine. This helps support healthy children thrive into adulthood. Promoting proper growth and development can reduce health challenges that result from neuromuscular imbalances. Chiropractic care in children also encourages nerve and brain development (neural plasticity).

Mamas who have just given birth are adapting to the new normal, structurally. It is imperative to align spine to improve healing and decrease pain.
Dr. Flores is certified and trained in the Webster Technique, which is a specific protocol to analyze and adjust the pelvis. This is a sought out technique specifically for pregnant woman. The Goal of this specific analysis is to reduce the effects of sacral/SI joint subluxation. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function can be facilitated to allow the pelvis to naturally progress throughout the pregnancy. Achieving optimal pelvic alignment can help decrease intrauterine constraint. This can allow the baby to prepare for the best birthing position naturally. Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to reduce labor times, decrease pain during labor and increase healing time postpartum.
