Winter Challenges

Getting around in winter can be an issue for all of us, not just those with mobility issues.  In the past few months we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of patients who have fallen and hurt themselves due to the icy conditions. Some have had minor falls and others major head injuries from slipping on the ice.  


If you have had a fall recently, please call to get in and be checked to make sure that the alignment of your neck, head and spine are kept in a healthy balance. It is important not to wait for symptoms to show up.  


In this issue we have included some tips to help you get the most out of your appointment. Some of the doctors' hours have changed as well, so please note the new hours below.


Let's all hope spring arrives soon!  In the meantime, keep safe and enjoy what is left of the fun winter activities.

Getting The Most Out of Your Appointment 
Booking Your Appointment:
  • When making your appointment, please provide a few details about your concern so that a proper length of time can be scheduled.  Be sure to let the staff know if you have had any accidents, surgeries or falls since your last visit to our clinic.  Many of these situations require extra time with the doctor and proper scheduling of these visits will help the office to serve your needs better.
  • It is important that our records are kept up to date.  Please let us know if there have been any changes in your personal information - name, address, phone numbers, email, etc.
  • The doctors hours may be limited. Please book in advance and have a few options in your availability when you call to book.  We do our best to fit in emergencies as soon as possible.
  • Did you know that we can bill Blue Cross and Green Shield
    directly.  Please let the staff know if you have extended health care insurance through either of these carriers. Please present your card and we can take care of it for you.  If you need to know your benefit coverage, please contact your provider.  Coverage at our clinic falls under chiropractic care. 

During Your Appointment:

  • Please share your symptoms and relevant recent health history with the staff.
  • Don't forget about your emotional stressors, they influence your physical health as well!
  • We do our best to run on time, however unforeseen events and emergencies can cause delays.  We appreciate your understanding in these situations.

"You often overlook the choicest things in life because they are so easy to obtain - the sunrise and the sunset, the starry host on a clear night, the taste of fresh clean air, the sight and smell of flowers and trees, and the fresh rain on your face."
