We treat the problem not just the symptoms
At the heart of the chiropractic philosophy is this simple wisdom: treat the problem itself, not just the symptoms. If you only look at the symptoms, the underlying problem is still there and will keep coming back until it’s treated. Consider the oil light in your car, if it comes on you have two options: 1. Replace the oil and fix the problem or 2. Cover up the oil light with a black magic marker and take care of the symptom. Obviously you would choose to fix the problem and not the symptom. Dr. Putty believes in fixing the problem, which in turn will take care of the symptom.
We take the time to listen
Dr. Putty has been trained to evaluate your total health picture and will ask questions about your lifestyle and work habits during consultation. This allows him to focus on the core problem and causes. While the first goal is to relieve pain, the larger goal is to restore good health. Good health cannot be attributed solely to medication, surgery, or chiropractic adjustments. Good health comes from a healthy lifestyle and proper spinal function.
Dr. Putty carefully assesses each patient by using modern diagnostic procedures. Treatment generally focuses on manual spinal manipulation, also called chiropractic adjustment. In some cases, therapy is also used to provide relief and speed the healing process.
