Betsey Carpenter D.C.

Thank you for taking the time to explore the many ways you can benefit from our service.There are various styles of chiropractic and finding the technique that suits your health needs is important.

Chiropractic treatments ranges from care that focus solely on spinal adjustments to sessions which include attention to nutrition and emotion along with alignment.  Clinical Kinesiology is a system of chiropractic which establishes a dialogue with your body through muscle response testing.  This technique evaluates your health much like a computer program searching for information that is locked in certain files.  Through this dialogue with your body  we work as a team to identify and treat your unique circumstance.  CK takes into account structural, nutritional and emotional aspects of your being in a holistic approach to treatment.

We specialize in holistic treatment of individuals who are healing or who wish to obtain a higher level of wellness. 

Nutritional Consulting is an important aspect of your care in our office.  We recognize that a healthy body requires essential nutrients.  If your goal is to recover from an injury or to relieve chronic pain, your body will want specific nutrients to help the healing process.  Wellness is a biological battle against disease.  To win this challenge it is essential to be taking the right supplements at the right time.  Our extensive nutritional knowledge and access to your unique constitution through muscle response testing gives you the advantage in winning the wellness challenge.

Low Level Laser Light Therapy is available as an adjunct to your treatment.  The Erchonia PL5000 laser has a wavelength of 635 nm and is a sanctioned medical modality approved by the FDA for the treatment of chronic pain.  It has an anti-inflammatory effect, improves collagen formation for wound healing and reduces pain and muscle spasm.
