Testimonials
I am totally delighted with the chiropractic treatments I’ve received from Dr. Tricia Kapavik at Royal Oaks Wellness. I had severe “tennis” elbow for almost 25 months and the treatment prescribed by an orthopedic surgeon was ineffective. Dr. Kapavik eliminated the entire condition (and pain!) in a total of four office visits! She is incredible! I also purchased a natural product she recommended for my hot flashes and felt results within a few days! One month later all symptoms were gone! I highly recommend her services and am referring all my friends and business partners to her. Kim Gebron CEO, Nellie B Company

Chiropractic History Print E-mail

The word chiropractic is derived from Greek and means "To Perform with the Hands”. Paintings from ancient Egypt and Greece have shown chiropractic was used thousands of years ago. However, David Palmer in the U.S did not find modern chiropractic until 1895.

Treatment is usually painless and contrary to popular beliefs is completely normal and un-dramatic. Combining several factors including the patient’s examination history and/or x-rays, the doctor can make the decision on how to treat your problem.

Chiropractic today has the education and technology to treat many problems, not just back and neck pain. Chiropractic can also help you learn different ways of restoring and maintaining true health through means such as exercising, stretching the muscles, and eating a healthy diet.

Once the problem has been relieved, the chiropractor can help with prevention of similar problems by identifying certain strains that your body is exposed to everyday. These strains may be due to physical, chemical or mental causes.

Chiropractic is a detailed examination of the joints of the body to determine if and where a functional misalignment exists. If misalignment exists and is isolated the chiropractor can physically restore the joint to its optimal position and range of motion. This may take one, or more than likely a series of treatments to stabilize the condition.

Chiropractic is a health care discipline, which emphasizes the inherent recuperation power of the body to heal itself without drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and nervous system and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

The chiropractic belief on healing and health differs from the traditional medical view. A chiropractor will evaluate the entire patient as a whole during the examination and treat a patient’s health and alignment not just focusing on only one symptom or specific part of the body. We know the body can maintain and heal itself in most cases, without chemicals or cutting out of certain tissues, and we believe health is something that comes from within.

The Chiropractor and staff also know that under certain circumstances medical intervention is necessary but it is the body that controls and manages the healing process and not the doctor or externally applied forces.

Once the Chiropractor corrects spinal abnormalities and can eliminate spine and nerve irritation, pain is relieved and the body's own history capabilities are set into motion.
