Our office utilizes traditional chiropractic adjustments and innovative soft tissue techniques for the treatment of neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. Dr. Kate's goal is to provide efficient, comfortable, and personalized care to give you the greatest pain reduction possible and return you to full functionality in the shortest amount of time.
Dr. Kate has training in many of the major chiropractic techniques and will tailor your treatment to your needs. Your first visit will involve a thorough consultation and examination to determine your care plan. Treatment can usually be provided during the first visit. Some chiropractic conditions can be resolved in a short period of time, and others will take longer. Dr. Kate will be upfront with you about your expected progression. Lifestyle and ergonomic changes are often necessary for improvement, and these will be prescribed and explained to you throughout your care plan.
Our x-ray philosophy: consistent with current scientific standards, x-rays are not automatically taken. Dr. Kate will decide if radiology is necessary based on your exam. Radiology may be ordered in the future if she deems it necessary.
Dr. Wagner has training in the following techniques:
Diversified – the most common chiropractic technique. You may hear a "pop," which is normal.
Active Release Technique® - this technique uses specific gentle protocols with patient movement to treat soft tissues including muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Cox® Flexion-Distraction – using a specialized table, this technique provides a specific, controlled stretch to the lower back. This is particularly helpful for chronic low back pain and disc injuries.
Activator Method® - this method utilizes a device which delivers a gentle force to joints. This is a great alternative for those who cannot tolerate traditional adjustments, such as those with osteoporosis.
Thompson – This uses a special table “drop” piece to assist in adjusting the spine.
Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization – Using curved instruments, this technique works on the fascia, or the thin tissue which surrounds your bones and muscles.
