Chiropractic Care

Dr. Ritchie provides incredibly thorough chiropractic care. When you arrive at your initial appointment, Dr. Ritchie will first listen to your concerns and will perform a thorough and detailed chiropractic examination. Dr. Ritchie uses digital x-ray to evaluate the health and alignment of your spine. Finally, Dr. Ritchie will create a thorough care plan to make sure you achieve your health goals quickly and safely.

Chiropractors find and correct any area of the spine where the bones are misaligned or restricted in movement. If you do suffer from spinal misalignment or restriction, you are essentially suffering from a sprain of the spine, much like a sprain of the ankle but with possible neurological consequences. In chiropractic, this is referred to as a subluxation of the spine.

These subluxations worsen with time and can end up causing reduced range of motion and irritation to the nerves of the spine, both of which can cause pain, reduced function, or even neurological symptoms like numbness, tingling, weakness, burning sensations, and more.

At Ritchie Chiropractic & Wellness, our goal is to find and correct spinal subluxations to restore proper motion and position to the bones of the spine. In turn this helps restore function, decrease pain, and help you achieve a greater state of health.

Most people that come to us for help are suffering from lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, and migraines. Though, we have helped people with a wide variety of ailments.

Dr. Ritchie provides gentle chiropractic adjustments using an Impulse adjusting instrument which is a state-of-the-art device used to deliver a safe, gentle, and effective chiropractic adjustment without the twisting and cracking of traditional chiropractic care.

The immediate benefit of chiropractic care, and the one we hope to help you achieve as quickly as possible, is less (and ideally zero) pain. As patients continue care, they commonly can start to notice other improvements in quality of sleep, range of motion, ease of movement, relief from prior achiness or stiffness in the joints, and increased energy and vitality. Many of our patients are surprised to see how far the effects of chiropractic adjustments can extend into other areas of their lives, and affect things like their attitude, relationships, and careers for the better as well!

We apply an investigative process to the beginning of our relationship with each patient. When you enter our office, we do our best to get to know the whole person, and everything that encompasses your health and lifestyle. This allows us to get a full picture of your state of wellness and your goals rather than just a small snapshot of your current pain.

“When I have a good understanding of who you are, why you have come to our office, and what you wish to achieve, I draw up a customized, detailed care plan specifically suited to you and your requirements. I pull from an extensive series of advanced chiropractic techniques to design a unique approach built on expertise and experience. The techniques we use for your condition will be appropriate for your needs and adjustable to your comfort level. We also take any necessary opportunity to discuss nutritional, lifestyle, sleep, or stress management changes that could positively affect your adjustments and your condition.”

While our initial focus is always on relief-oriented care, we also guide many of our patients through corrective and maintenance adjustments after they’ve achieved relief from immediate pain. We educate all of our patients on how to support their condition with lifestyle changes and on the benefits of wellness care.

We employ a number of traditional and modern chiropractic techniques to help you achieve your goals, including:

  • Atlas Orthogonal Upper Cervical
  • Activator Method

  • Impulse instrument adjusting
  • Flexion Distraction
