Full Health History and Comprehensive Examination of Every New Patient.
New patient visits are about one hour in length.

A comprehensive health history will be covered and will include: main reason for visit, prior injuries or illnesses, family history, and social history.
You might be asked to put on a gown for your examination, which will include posture analysis, range of motion, orthopedic testing, neurological testing, and a chiropractic examination.
Dr.Joy will then review her findings and offer recommendations for a treatment plan.
Chiropractic Adjustments - We offer both manual and low-force techniques.
Most visits are approximately 15 minutes in length. Some doctors use their hands, others use special tables or instruments. Dr. Joy has a wide variety of techniques to offer ranging from applied Kinesiology (muscle testing) and SOT (sacro-occipital technique), to Activator and manual adjustments. Depending on the treatment plan, visits may incorporate stretching and/or strengthening exercises.
Therapeutic massage is a wonderful adjunct to a chiropractic treatment.
Dr. Joy and our massage therapists, Cynthia Nelson and Cindy Kay Anderson, collaborate to offer patients maximum therapeutic benefits.
Cynthia also offers these modalities: ear candling, cupping and Tui Na (Chinese medical massage).
Massage Appointments are available with Cindy Kay on Mondays and with Cynthia on Wednesdays and Fridays.
