What You Need to Know About Your First Appointment

New Patients

At Ultimate Spine & Wellness Chiropractic we use gentle chiropractic techniques to treat you. A spinal adjustment to a specific part of the spinal segment-corrects the misalignment. Therefore this permits normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own. Because of this we know that the body is capable of healing itself with proper alignment and nervous system function.

This is why using chiropractic treatment works so well.

In addition to restoring proper alignment and nervous system function, spinal manipulation can restore joint mobility. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position. Staying in a poor spinal posture for an extended period of time will also cause injury. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for an individual.

Chiropractic adjustments rarely cause discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment. This feels like some forms of exercise and usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.

A chiropractor’s conservative approach offers a safe and effective option.

Our neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. Incredibly, the cervical spine supports the full weight of your head, which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.

The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.

A neck adjustment (also known as cervical manipulation) is a precise procedure applied to the joints of the neck, usually by hand. A neck adjustment works to improve the mobility of the spine and to restore range of motion; it can also increase movement of the adjoining muscles. Patients typically notice an improved ability to turn and tilt the head, and a reduction of pain, soreness, and stiffness.

Back pain is a fact of life for many people. Research shows that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point during their lives. It is also the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.

Sometimes back pain is sharp and intense, caused by a wrong move or an injury, and heals in a few days or weeks. Others experience back pain as a chronic condition, seriously altering their ability to work and enjoy time with family, friends and other leisure activities—leading to depression in some cases. A recent global survey of health conditions identified back pain as the single most disabling condition worldwide.

Another study based on Washington state workers found that 42.7 percent of people who visited a surgeon first for work-related back pain eventually had surgery, compared to only 1.5 percent of those who visited a chiropractor first.

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. 

Chiropractic services are used most often to treat conditions such as back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Chiropractors practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. 


Ear Infections






If you have a headache, you’re not alone. Nine out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea. What do you do when you suffer from a pounding headache? Do you grit your teeth and carry on? Lie down? Pop a pill and hope the pain goes away? There is a better alternative.

Research shows that spinal manipulation – one of the primary treatments provided by doctors of chiropractic – may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. A 2014 report in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) found that interventions commonly used in chiropractic care improved outcomes for the treatment of acute and chronic neck pain and increased benefit was shown in several instances where a multimodal approach to neck pain had been used. Also, a 2011 JMPT study found that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, improves migraine and cervicogenic headaches.

Frequently Asked Questions

Initial visit

We will take a health history and perform a physical examination, with a special emphasis on the spine. Other examinations or tests such as x-rays may also be performed depending on the specific complaint. If chiropractic treatment is considered appropriate, a treatment plan will be developed.

Follow Up Visits

You will receive adjustments and other therapies used in chiropractic care as necessary. We use Activator Protocol to determine which segments need to be adjusted and aligned to restore proper function. Dr. Grainger will perform the adjustment either with the Impulse adjuster, Activator, Manual or with a Drop Table. The goal is to increase the range and quality of motion in the area being treated and to aid in restoring health.


X-rays will be performed on a necessity basis depending on your medical health history and problems you are experiencing to determine the best possible treatment options to help restore your health.
