Chiropractic is a hands-on, manual therapy, that can achieve great results for many conditions.
Education involves a four year undergraduate degree, followed by a four year program consisting of 4800 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical study, including anatomy, physiology, chiropractic technique, radiology, biochemistry, toxicology, nutrition, diagnosis and physical examination. This includes a clinical internship for one year in a clinical setting.
Chiropractors comprise the third largest segment of the health care practitioners in the United
States, with over 50,000 in practice. The Department of Health and Human Services classifies
Doctors of Chiropractic as category 1 providers, just like medical physicians, dentists, and
Dr Jeff Roth is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (C.C.S.P) This certification is the result
of extensive post-graduate training and testing in the field of sports injuries. We take this knowledge and approach and apply it to all of our patients, athletes or not.
A sports oriented approach means that the manipulation done is supported with complete
understanding of the musculature and its affects on the spine and skeleton. This is then supported with a specific rehabilitative program designed precisely for the patients' needs.
Over the past fifteen years there has been an explosion of research validating the effectiveness of chiropractic manipulation. A review of the most recent literature from recognized journals in medicine (Spine, British Journal of Medicine). Chiropractic is considered to be the best choice for treating back pain. Chiropractic care has been shown to be most effective method for improving and providing long-lasting quality of life for back-pain sufferers. Some of the latest studies about chiropractic are not only showing how effective it is, but also how chiropractictreatments can help to lower the overall costs. This is being achieved by reducing the need for as much diagnostic testing, surgeries and medication use.
Dr Jeff Roth feels that we need to treat the surrounding musculature if we are going to be
efficient in our goal of correcting your injuries. Using active release techniques to correct the soft tissue injuries, allows us to perform manipulation when necessary, with less force or effort. Even more important, the need for ongoing treatment is eliminated as the goal is to fix your problem and teach you how to care for and prevent future concerns.
