Welcome note from Dr. Steve

Welcome and thanks for visiting our site.  Our chiropractic clinic primarily serves the Ballard, Greenwood, Green Lake, Magnolia, and Queen Anne neighborhoods of Seattle, striving to earn the trust of our patients by providing them with a modern approach to chiropractic care.

Beyond performing a proper evaluation and selecting the most appropriate clinical therapies, our most common experience has been that positive results have been achieved most quickly when patients have been actively involved in their own care.  Educating patients about the anatomy of their condition allows them to understand why certain  home exercises, postural modifications or nutritional supplements have been specifically recommended for them to support the chiropractic adjustments they receive in our office.   Motivation matters because the old adage of old habits being hard to break is often true.  Replacing some of the poor postures and activity choices  with  with new ones is much easier for patients follow through with when they understand the reasons why.

Chiropractic care is a natural approach to treating a variety of common conditions without the use of drugs or surgery.  Essentially, it is an approach that allows the body’s to use its own natural healing abilities.  As of March, 2016, I have been practicing in Seattle’s beautiful and historic Ballard neighborhood for 22 years. Our chiropractic office is located just 1 block North of Market St. between 15th and 17th Aves. NW. Our services are readily available for individuals looking for a natural, drugless approach to a variety of common health conditions and injuries.

For one reason or another, many people have never had the opportunity to experience the benefits of having a chiropractor in their healthcare toolbox.  As such, many people wonder when, and for what conditions, chiropractic care would be an appropriate avenue for them to pursue. I am happy to have a phone conversation with anyone trying to determine if chiropractic care is a viable treatment option for their particular condition. Please just give our office a call and we will set up a mutually convenient time to talk.

Our primary purpose is to help people achieve a greater level of health by helping them move better and feel better.  Our personalized approach to treating patients often combines safe, gentle chiropractic adjustments with targeted stretches, exercises, postural advice, and nutritional recommendations. We treat a variety of common health conditions and have helped a wide variety of people achieve relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica (leg soreness or pain) and arm symptoms.  Gaining a better understanding the anatomy of one’s condition, improving strength, increasing flexibility, and bettering one’s posture are all elements commonly incorporated into most of our patients’ treatment plans.

Back and neck rehabilitation programs are commonly called for when people have been injured in automobile accidents or at work.  Chiropractors are an excellent healthcare provider choice for many of these soft tissue injuries because not only are they specialists in treating these kinds of soft tissue injuries, they are also ready and willing to work with, or refer to, massage therapists, physical therapists, radiology services, or medical doctors as it is called for.

We are preferred or participating provider on most health insurance plans including: Regence (Blue Shield), Premera (Blue Cross), Lifewise, Aetna, Uniform, First Choice, CIGNA, UnitedHealthcare, Uniform Medical, Washington State Dept. of Labor and Industries (L&I) amongst others.   Automobile Insurance covers chiropractic care for injuries sustained in auto accidents without a referral required from a medical doctor.  In fact, in most instance, a referral from your medical doctor is not required to initiate treatment from a chiropractor.
