BALANCED LIVERMORE CHIROPRACTIC AND REHABILITATION

WHAT MAKES BALANCED LIVERMORE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CHIROPRACTIC CLINICS?

WHAT MAKES BALANCED LIVERMORE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CHIROPRACTIC CLINICS?

Our clinic provides chiropractic care combined with physiotherapy modalities, which not only leads to quicker pain relief but most importantly, addresses the root cause of the pain or injury. It's not uncommon for chiropractic appointments to be 2-5 minutes in length, but research shows that adjustments alone do not fix or prevent injuries. Our returning visits are 30 to 40 minutes and include adjustments, soft tissue (muscle work), traction, exercise guidance, and more.

Everything we do at Balanced Livermore is backed by current research and driven by ethical care, extraordinary patient experience, and a genuine desire to improve our patients lives. We don't require x-rays (we'll refer you to an imaging center if there is a suspected fracture or break), speak to subluxations, or sell long-term treatment plans.

We also see patients with jaw pain, carpel tunnel, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, headaches, sinus/ear pressure, plus more.

DO YOU TAKE X-RAYS?

No, we do not take x-rays at Balanced Livermore. Musculoskeletal conditions cannot be visualized on an x-ray and therefor, not an effective diagnostic tool, nor has research shown x-rays lead to better outcomes or safer treatments. Additionally, ionizing radiation exposure may elevate the risk of cancer over long periods of time. The only time we'll request outside imaging is if there is a suspected break or injury that cannot be diagnosed through external muscle testing.

WHAT DOES MY FIRST APPOINTMENT ENTAIL?

Your first visit to Balanced Livermore will include both an exam and treatment. Please plan on being in the office for 1 to 1.5 hours - follow-up visits will be 30 minutes. Your first visit will start with a thorough exam, muscle testing, and a treatment plan designed to target the root cause of your pain or injury. At the completion of your initial exam, we will be ready to start your first treatment! Your treatment will start with 10 minutes of electrical stimulation (also known as muscle stim), and heat to warm-up the area of concern prior to being worked on. The remainder of your treatment will be a combination of chiropractic work, stretching, muscle / deep tissue work, therapeutic exercises, cupping, and/or k-tape. Which therapies are used will be determined by the Dr., and will only be used when it is safe and necessary to do so.

ARE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS REQUIRED?

The short answer is, no! While adjustments are a powerful tool for many injuries and areas of concern, they are also not needed for every condition we treat.

We also understand that some patients may prefer not to be adjusted, or request that certain areas not be adjusted. Because of the diverse range of modalities we offer, adjustments are just one tool in our toolbox, and are not required. We are still able to treat patients effectively. We also offer low force alternatives to adjusting, such as the activator tool, for patients who prefer this type of adjustment or have health conditions that make traditional adjustments unsafe.
