What to Expect in Our Office

new patient consultation & exam

Dr. Ashton will review your intake paperwork that you have filled out prior to your examination. A thorough consultation and examination will be performed including orthopedic, neurological, and musculoskeletal assessments to determine the specific cause of your complaint. Dr. Ashton will gather the first visit's information and create an individualized treatment plan for you that will best fit your personal health needs and functional goals. On your second visit, Dr. Ashton and her staff will go over all financial information for the entire treatment plan so that you know exactly what to expect.

Dr. Ashton utilizes a variety of adjusting techniques based on doctor recommendations and patient preferences. Chiropractic adjustments help to optimize communication between the brain and body, decrease nervous system interference, improve mobility in the spine and/or extremities, and decreases tension in muscles. 

 

Intersegmental traction may be utilized as a therapy service if indicated in a patient's treatment plan. Intersegmental traction helps to mobilize both the spine and the soft tissues surrounding the spine. Traction also helps stimulate important acupressure points along the spine to help aid in the healing process. A variety of other soft tissue techniques may be used to help decrease muscular tightness and adhesions, promoting better treatment outcomes.

 

Needle-free or needle acupuncture may also be utilized to complement the adjustment. Needle-free acupuncture is used with a special electrical instrument and works just like traditional acupuncture needles in a fraction of the time. Important acupuncture points are stimulated to help improve the healing process.

Dr. Ashton also utilizes needle acupuncture for specific treatment plans or complaints. Acupuncture is used to help balance your body's energy system and allow for optimal healing.
