What is a Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a doctor specializing in neuomusculoskeletal injuries, basically nerve problems, muscle & tendon problems, and joint problems. Using hands-on techniques, the primary goals are to decrease pain and increase functioning.

While there are lots of different techniques that chiropractors employ, it comes down to ensuring that each patient gets a unique treatment that is customized to their injuries and helps take them to their goal.

We want to ensure that we are not just creating a short term fix, but working together to create long lasting solutions to live a happy healthy life.

At our clinic, Dr. Stoltz strives to create these long term solutions by addressing muscles, joints and nerves all issues throughout the course of the plan.

Another important factor in any treatment plan is the home care rehabilitation. Every patient that comes in our clinic will receive a personalized strength and flexibility care plan to accompany the in office treatments.
