Movement is life. When your spine, and the vertebrae have movement, blood can flow properly, oxygen flows correctly and the body receives life. When joints stagnate, life begins to dissipate. The entire purpose of the adjustment is to inject the spine with more life.
Dr. Thompson is a healer. His hands are his tools. When you come into his office for an adjustment, you'll be asked to lay on the table. With the help of his craft, he provides brisk movement to the spine and the neck. He also makes adjustments in the other extremities when needed, such as the legs and arms. His work is customized for your specific needs, some of which may include the following:
- Lower Back
- Upper Back
- Herniated disk
- Arms and Hands
- Legs and Feet
The adjustment itself lasts just a few minutes, depending on your needs and condition. Dr. Thompson will also use physical therapy techniques, exercises and manipulation tools in order for your body to receive the movement it needs to heal.
Your First Visit
1. Every new patient experience begins by taking films.
Dr. Thompson does this for a couple reasons. First, is to ensure an accurate diagnosis of any misalignment in the spine, neck, or other extremities. Second, especially if you have been in an accident, this makes sure that chiropractic work is done, only if your bones are not damages. (Dr. Thompson has literally saved people from life threatening situations after a car wreck, by first doing an x-ray.)
2. Dr. Thompson consults with you about your goals, including: pain relief, health, weight loss and supplements.
Recommendations are made to help you reach all of these goals. A wellness strategy is put in place that meets your needs, including time, budget and health.
3. You can then begin enjoying the benefits to chiropractic adjustments.
You can expect to receive a personalized adjustment for your spine and neck. Other services included in treatments are the automated rolling table, exercises: including the hip rotation chair, balls, T-zone machine, electrode stimulus and more.
"I was thrown from a horse ten years ago and have suffered constant back pain and headaches since the accident.
Over the years I have tried anti-inflammatory; physical therapy; and E-stim but the pain persisted.
Dr. Thompson came to my home delivering fliers to let people know he had opened a practice in Herriman.
When I came in for my first appointment, he took x-rays, did a physical exam and then presented me with a 90 day treatment plan. He was the first doctor who did not say, “ There is nothing wrong with your back” or “ you need to lose weight before I can help you.”
I have not had significant headaches in weeks. My back, while not perfect yet, feels better than it has in fifteen years.
I would say to others, who are suffering from similar conditions, “ come and see Dr. Thompson, I KNOW he can help you.”
