This is my son. Any treatments that I give to one of my patients are the same treatments that I perform on a family member or loved one.
We live in a society with a lot of difficult decisions to make when it comes to our health and the health of our children. Who do we trust? Which internet article is telling the truth? Are the statistics reliable? The question I think every patient should ask is - "would you give that medicine/surgery/adjustment/treatment to someone you love?" At Jensen Chiropractic & Acupuncture, the answer is always yes. I do not perform any treatments on patients that I wouldn't perform on my wife, children, family or friends. When a patient walks into my office, I take that responsibility seriously. Every patient has a different background, set of needs and level of health. I would not adjust an elderly osteoporotic patient the same way I would adjust a baby or a 25-year-old marathon runner. At my office, we perform an examination before doing any adjustments to determine the needs of each patient. I also do a consultation with the patient to determine what a patient is comfortable with regarding an adjustment. I have developed an array of ways to adjust patients...I refer to my technique as "sculpting" your vertebral spine into a healthy position free of nerve interference.
