Chiropractic Care

What Is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic is a health care profession that addresses the whole body to determine the cause of pain and dysfunction. Whether your condition is the result of a sports injury, repetitive actions related to work, or simply your daily routine, we strive to detect the underlying issue and resolve it so you can get back to functioning optimally.

Our Approach to Your Care

Our approach at WestEnd Spine and Rehab is multifaceted.

The first step is to figure out what’s wrong. We do this through a series of evaluations to assess the range of motion within your joints, including the joints of the spine and extremities. This allows us to locate joint restrictions (joints that aren’t moving properly), which are the underlying cause of your pain.

The next step is to correct these restrictions. Chiropractic adjustments—either with the hands or with an instrument—send an impulse to the joint to restore normal position and range of motion. We also work on the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments and tendons) in the affected area that have tightened or shortened in response to the joint restriction as a way to protect the area.

The final step is to provide an individualized exercise program for you. These exercises help correct the condition, and then stabilize and strengthen the muscles to help prevent future issues. Our goal is to get you back to normal function, and then give you the tools you need to keep yourself moving better and feeling better.

Education Is Key

Dr. Hagen uses the Diversified adjusting technique, which is a manual (hands-on) technique. He also does some instrument-assisted adjusting when needed.

Dr. Hagen explains everything that’s going to happen before it happens so you can relax, which facilitates the adjustment. He also explains the mechanics of what’s causing your issue and how the exercise plan he’s created for you will help you minimize the risk of similar conditions in the future. When you understand how your body works, you’re more empowered to help keep it working optimally.
