I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

In recent years we have noticed the overall health of Americans is declining. The quality of people's diets and lack of physical activity along with higher stress lifestyles has taken it's toll on people. We want to give our patients the education, tools and treatments that will help their bodies heal and stay well long term. We are not interested in treating your pain alone. We want to find out WHY you have pain, disfunction and disease, and correct the cause.

Heffernan Chiropractic Clinic has always provided services congruent with chiropractic’s original philosophy. The philosophy of chiropractic recognizes that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism. The body and life itself have the potential for growth. We recognize that health is a God-given birth rite. Our procedures are geared toward removing interferences to the body’s ability to heal and mend itself. Rather than treating diseases and symptoms, our emphasis is on restoring health by boosting immune function and removing pressure and irritation to the nervous system. The nervous system is the master controlling system of the body. It adapts each of us to our environment. Removing nervous system interference allows your body to operate at its optimum potential.

We practice chiropractic using segmentally specific vertebral and extremity adjustments. 

We also practice a unique technique called Nutriton Response Testing™.  This technique uses kinesiology to find which organ systems are being affected by nutritional deficiencies and what specific whole food nutrition your body needs, and in what quantity is it needed to regain health.  There are less than 200 doctors in the world that are certified in this highly specialized technique.

The Chiropractic physical examination starts with observing a patient’s posture. We look at the feet, ankles, knees, hips, pelvic balance, spinal alignment, shoulder height, ear height, and head tilt. We assess overall balance and function of these structures. Close attention is also paid to each patient’s gait and balance. A range of motion assessment follows the posture analysis. Appropriate x-ray films are taken and evaluated to further verify the presence of spinal malposition or degeneration. We are screening for the presence of the vertebral subluxation complex (VSC) throughout your spine. Chiropractors are trained to detect and correct the VSC, an entity that threatens human health. The VSC is unrecognized and left untreated by the medical community.

At Heffernan Chiropractic Clinic we utilize state-of-the-art adjusting tables that employ drop mechanisms for precise, light force, specific, manually applied adjustments. The chiropractors at our clinic have served as postgraduate faculty of accredited chiropractic colleges and have taught other chiropractors advanced spinal adjusting procedures throughout the world. Our doctors are recognized by their peers as leaders in advanced chiropractic adjusting techniques.

  1. a thorough postural/chiropractic examination
