Our goal at Westwood Family Chiropractic is to improve the health and vitality of our community. We do this by providing expert care focused at improving the function of the nerve system. We utilize gentle and specific adjustments given by highly trained professionals in a beautiful, peaceful environment.
Expert Care to Improve Function: Although the body is designed to work perfectly, damage (whether traumatic or repetitive) to the spine can create stress to the nerves and interfere with the ideal function of the body. One of the worst types of damage/injury to the spine is called the vertebral subluxation, a misalignment of spinal bones which puts pressure on the nerves and nervous system. Research show that by correcting these misalignments/vertebral subluxations of the spine, the body can function more optimally.
Gentle and Specific: The techniques utilized in our office are specific chiropractic spinal adjustments. These adjustments are gentle forces (done by hand) that the body can utilize to allow the correction of vertebral subluxations. When necessary, specific analytical tools like x-ray are used to help determine the best possible way to correct a specific vertebral subluxation. We utilize a number of neurological and brain function tests, pre and post, to determine the initial degree of damage to the nerve system compared to the amount of function that has been restored in response to care.
Patient Education: From your first visit we will provide important information that will empower you to improve your health and vitality. We continue to offer regular workshops and classes about the body and actions and activities that you can implement to continue to improve.
Environment: Welcome to our home! We love having a home office. We are located on five and a half acres that includes a large koi pond, meditation labyrinth, Dr. Patti’s vegetable garden, and countless flower beds and trees. The grounds are open for our practice members to explore, enjoy and relax.
