How many treatments will it take to correct the problem?
This is difficult to answer because everyone is different, and even the two same conditions in two different people may have different components leading to the manifestation of the symptoms. This is something that is discussed on a case by case basis following examination.
What should I expect on my first visit?
The first visit is approximately one hour long. A discussion of health concerns, followed by a thorough examination utilizing non-radiological methods with standard orthopedic tests are used in conjunction with muscle testing, and bio-energetic analysis. Unless pathology or fracture is suspected x-rays are not used. This analysis will determine if this type of care is appropriate for the problems presented. If it is determined that the methods and services provided are a good choice for the presented patient, then a discussion of a treatment plan is provided. If time permits, some treatment is provided that same day.

No. The methods in this office stabilize structural integrity, joint and spinal alignment without the common popping or cracking most commonly utilized within the chiropractic profession.

No, payment is expected at the time of service. We accept cash, check, or bitcoin.
Where can I find more information about what you do?
The NMT website www.nmt.md is an excellent site about energetic medicine. I encourage all patients to read up there, and get involved on the webboard there.
Books that are excellent sources of information about the science behind the techniques utilized include: The Field, by Lynn McTaggert and Vibrational Medicine, by Richard Gerber MD, and Entangled Minds by Dean Radin PhD.
Is the expense of seeking a natural practitioner worth it?
Studies performed analyzing the health care costs of those who see complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioner’s as their primary care physician (PCP) compared to those who utilized conventional medicine PCP’s spent less money on average on health care.
How does chiropractic college compare to medical school?
The training and education endured by chiropractic college graduates is extremely thorough and demanding, similar to that of medical doctors with the exception of pharmacology and surgery.
Prior to entering chiropractic college, the aspiring doctor requires 2-4 years (depending on the college attended and the state one wishes to practice in) of premed undergraduate studies. Once completed, the student must next complete 4-5 academic years of studies at a chiropractic college. This includes extensive training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, radiology, differential diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques, biomechanics , and other health-related studies.
In addition, prior to graduation each student must successfully complete several hundred clinical hours of “real” patient management in a clinical setting under professional supervision. Most chiropractic colleges also require students to partake in clinical externship programs which place them in actual chiropractic offices, further enhancing their clinical practice skills.
Near or soon after graduation, the new doctors of chiropractic must successfully complete rigorous National and State Board examinations prior to obtaining a license to practice chiropractic. Once licensed, most states require that chiropractors receive annual continuing education to ensure that a high level of competency is maintained.
The following is a comparison of hours between medical school and chiropractic school graduates. You may be surprised to learn that chiropractic trained doctors receive more class and study time in many important subjects compared with their medical counterparts.
