What to Expect When Visiting
Our Seattle Chiropractor


Welcome to Optimal Health Spine and Wellness Clinic! Our Seattle chiropractor’s unique approach to care can make a significant difference for your overall health. Patients turn to our clinic when traditional treatment methods, such as pain medication, fail to work. Our non-invasive treatments provide both immediate relief (“patch care”) as well as long-term health improvements (“corrective care/rehab”) for patients suffering from symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches due to a car accident or work injury. If you are new to our clinic, this information is designed to help you better understand our treatment philosophy.


Our Seattle chiropractor treats patients in the Burien, Des Moines and SeaTac areas and follows a whole body approach to pain relief and injury rehabilitation. Rather than covering up symptoms with medication, our treatments target the underlying cause for your back or neck pain. For example, an auto accident injury such as whiplash can knock the neck out of alignment. Pain will continue as long as this misalignment persists. Chiropractic care and complementary therapies such as massage are the best way to relieve and treat this pain.

Patch Care & Corrective Care/Rehab: Immediate & Long-Term Pain Relief

Our treatment approach for a musculoskeletal injury is two-fold. Our patch care provides immediate pain relief while our corrective care/rehab provides a long-term solution to your health concerns.

When you come to our office in pain, our first priority is to provide immediate relief. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may benefit from treatment 2-3 times per week for two to four weeks. This patch care provides immediate relief for your back painneck pain and/or headaches. You may choose to stop care once your pain goes away. However, our chiropractor may recommend massage therapy as part of your treatment as well as continuing with a corrective care/rehab program.

Corrective care/rehab is designed to prevent pain from recurring and reduce the risk for future injury. In addition to chiropractic care, we incorporate corrective care exercises and physical therapy to strengthen the spine and improve posture. This is the only way to make long-lasting changes to the body. If you suffer from chronic, recurring pain, corrective care/rehab is a critical treatment phase that will prevent your pain from returning. Treatment is usually 2-3 times per week for 6-8 weeks, depending on a patient’s pain management needs.

Our chiropractor recognizes that every patient faces unique health challenges. That’s why our pain relief treatments are customized to each patient’s needs. During your first visit, the doctor will perform a detailed exam and evaluation to determine the cause for your pain. Identifying the precise location for spinal misalignment is very important. By locating subluxations within your spine, our chiropractor is best able to tailor treatment to your pain relief needs.

Achieving optimal health does not happen overnight. However, through regular chiropractic adjustments and lifestyle changes, you can be healthier, more active and pain-free.
