Chiropractor With No Initial Exam Required – Portland, Maine

September 13, 2016

Chiropractor With No Initial Exam Required. Chiropractor – Portland, Maine   People often call chiropractic offices just wanting to get cracked. They don’t want an initial exam, regardless of cost, the want a tweak and to be on their way. I can understand the need for instant gratification, our culture has come to expect it.   A couple of months ago my wife took our car into the shop and had it checked out and some regular maintenance done. When I spoke with her and the service manager he said there was some work to be done.   This is what I did not say: “There’s work to be done? Okay, do it!”   Here is what I did say: “There’s work to be done? Okay, what’s wrong with the car and what needs to be done immediately to keep us safe, how much will it cost and how long will it take?”   Jacobs Chiropractic Acupuncture receives calls from new patients daily. Most of them are interested in knowing what is wrong with them before they begin treatment. Like me, they want to know “what’s wrong with their car” before they spend time, money and energy trying to fix it....

My chiropractor has an assembly line office!

September 7, 2016

Your Chiropractor has an assembly line office and you don’t like it?   The fact of the matter is, many people love the speed of the office with a chiropractor who adjusts you and sends you on your way in 3 minutes or less. In fact, as a chiropractor and person who values my time, I love this type of office. In and out in a flash. I get the adjustment I need and no time is wasted on stuff that the chiropractor doesn’t deal with anyway.   That said, we all need to be heard. Especially when it comes to our health, emotions and future. Nobody wants to feel like they are being pushed through for the convenience of the doctor and staff. The bottom line is that if you don’t like the speed at which your chiropractor works, tell them. If they don’t listen, or can’t explain to you why the office works the way it does, go somewhere else. Chiropractic is no different than any other healthcare specialty, if you aren’t happy with the doc, leave.     As a chiropractor in Portland, Maine, I have struggled with finding the best balance. This is the message...

August 10, 2016

Perinatal Yoga With a Twist at Perinatal & Pediatric Chiropractic of Maine           Prenatal Yoga   Pregnancy is one of the three periods in a woman’s life where she experiences major hormonal shifts (menarche, pregnancy and menopause). These are times of enormous change; the body’s chemistry takes over and forces a woman to make physical, emotional and mental readjustments. One of the most important physical adjustments during pregnancy is to tone the muscles; the pelvic floor muscles. Prenatal yoga helps you stay in shape during pregnancy, strengthens your muscles, and improves balance and circulation. In addition, breathing exercises and relaxation will help you connect with your growing baby and prepare you physically and mentally for labor and motherhood.   At Perinatal & Pediatric Chiropractic of Maine we offer small classes for each trimester, focusing on your needs at specific stages of the pregnancy.
