Our patients are a diverse crowd. They have different types of work, different stress levels, different concerns, and different problems. Dr. Lou has worked with WWII veterans and Grammy Award-winning musicians. He specializes in musicians, chefs, and athletes. Our office is open to all people, without exception. We are here to help people. All of our patients are listened to, respected, and treated like human beings. It’s sad that this is an important value these days, but it is. Our Portland, Maine office is situated right off of 295 so it is easily accessible for many different commuters.
“ I used to see a chiropractor who didn’t try to get to know me as a person. I felt like a number in his office, like at a hospital, and I didn’t like it. Dr. Lou’s office is nothing like that. His staff is warm, welcoming and helpful and it’s clear they really love their patients. It has a community feel.” ~ PK
Most new patients come to our office for relief of back pain, neck pain, pinched nerve, herniated disc, bulging disc, slipped disc, sciatica, sciatic nerve pain, headaches, migraine, shoulder pain, vertigo, stiff neck, physical therapy, allergies, sinuses, ear infections in children, plantar fasciitis, repetitive stress injuries, breech baby, pregnancy pain, numbness, tingling, sport injuries, work injuries, car accident injuries and whiplash. Our primary job is to identify and treat Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Also known as subluxation, this condition of structural distortion leads to irritation in nerves and damages the body’s ability to regulate and heal itself. By correcting, or treating subluxation and restoring your body’s regulatory and healing control, your pain and problems resolve.
Through objective testing using diagnostic technology geared toward these types of injuries, as well as a comprehensive Q&A with patients, and a physical exam, we determine what is wrong, how bad the subluxation is, how to correct it, how long it will take, and what it will cost. We provide you with a face to face report with the doctor where you receive the answers to these questions and more. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to someone who can. If you need testing we don’t do at the office, we will refer you out for it.
After over 16 years of working as a chiropractor both in the United States and in Europe, there is very little that Dr. Lou hasn’t seen or been told. Bring your problems, concerns, hopes, and goals to us and we promise to do our best to care for issues and worries, all while working toward achieving your goals.
