“For me, it all begins with the ‘why’ – what is my why? I believe my purpose is to improve the health and wellness of my patients so that they can live better, happier lives. Everyday I strive to make a significant and lasting difference by helping those who want to enhance their well-being but are in need of guidance, motivation and, most importantly, love. I don’t believe I’m here to “fix” anyone; my commitment is to restoring function and eliminating the barriers that are preventing the body from reaching its full potential. That is why I am a chiropractor, that is why I am at Integrated Health Solutions” – Dr. Drew Hunt

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

An adjustment is a treatment administered by a chiropractor to treat musculoskeletal symptoms such as neck pain, back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, hip pain, and other conditions. Adjustments involve carefully applying light pressure to specific joint locations of the spine or extremities in order to restore joint centralization and normalize biomechanical movement of the joint.

Once I start chiropractic treatment, do I have to go forever?

No. At Integrated Health Solutions we strive to address the root cause of pain, not just the symptoms. Depending on your condition, we will work with you to determine a treatment plan that yields maximumresults in the shortest amount of time possible.

What techniques do the doctors at Integrated Health Solutions use?

At Integrated Health Solutions we seek to administer the most effective combination of treatment methods including acupuncture, rehabilitative exercises, soft tissues therapies (ART, Graston, PIR), Diversified Adjusting Technique, along with nutritional and dietary planning.

Can children be helped with chiropractic treatment?

Oftentimes, chiropractic treatment is beneficial for children/infants as well as adults. In fact, children typically respond to treatment even faster than adults. At Integrated Health Solutions, we are happy to treat children over the age of 8.

How do I know when I have completed my treatment?

At Integrated Health Solutions, we will work with you to determine a roadmap to success with activity and performance goals to be reached. When an injury or condition arises, pain is the last symptom to appear and the first symptom to go away. Thus, while each session will be accompanied by pain relief, this alone does not mean that the root condition has been relieved. Thus, follow-up visits may be necessary to ensure that the injury or dysfunction is completely addressed in order to prevent future pain.

Should an adjustment ever hurt?

Typically chiropractic adjustments are painless; in fact, adjustments generally bring immediate pain relief to a patient. If a patient has recently been injured, for instance in a car accident, slight discomfort may accompany the adjustment. Because of this, we seek to administer integrative treatment plans such as chiropractic care combined with soft tissue therapy in order to address all sources of pain.

Are all chiropractors the same?

Absolutely not. While many chiropractors specialize in one treatment type, at Integrated Health Solutions we are certified to administer a combination of techniques such as acupuncture, soft tissue therapy, rehabilitative exercises, as well as chiropractic care to maximize the results of your visits. Research has shown that integrating treatment techniques not only yields the fastest results, but also produces longer lasting solutions to most musculoskeletal conditions. Furthermore, we use an evidence-based approach to treatment in order to alleviate the root cause of a condition, not just the symptom.
