Chiropractors are typically known for the technique of spinal manipulation, however, there is much more to the art and science of chiropractic than ‘cracking’ joints. The education of a chiropractor is similar in total classroom hours to that of a medical doctor. An average of 4,822 hours is required in chiropractic schools, compared with 4,667 hours in medical schools.
Many, many studies have been performed on chiropractic and have compared it to physical therapy, surgery, medications and a host of other treatments. There is an overwhelming body of research that supports the notion that chiropractic is superior to other options in both effectiveness and patient satisfaction.
Awesome chiropractor & she has assisted me SO much with dry needling! Very thankful for Dr. Kristine Maggs.
Dr. Kristine Maggs is not only very positive and pleasant but very knowledgeable. I have been going to her for several weeks for active release therapy and like the fact that she is all about getting a person back to their chosen activities.
For about a year and a half I suffered from an impingement in my shoulder. The pain had gotten so bad I had begun to lose sleep. My lifts were also being effected tremendously. I had very little movement to the shoulder that I could barely raise it above my head. I had heard about a procedure called Active Release Therapy (ART) and that’s when I found Dr. Kristine. Dr. Kristine immediately knew my problem and attacked it aggressively with treatments twice a week. After the first visit, I felt instant relief and was able to get a good night’s rest. Her early morning office hours were very convenient with my early gym/work schedule. Kristine and her receptionists always had friendly smiles and a welcoming, clean professional practice. I’ve recommended clients as well as co-workers, family and friends to her and they’ve come away more knowledgeable as well as free from pain. She explains the cause of your problem as well as showing proper form from preventing any more injuries. The shoulder was one of many areas that Kristine has treated for me. Thanks for having such a Great Practice.
