At Balance Restored Chiropractic our vision is to give our clients quality care versus quantity. As professionals, we hear the feedback of the public and the most common negative remark stated about chiropractic care is that chiropractors make their patients have an excessive amount of treatments. At Balance Restored Chiropractic we want to change this style of chiropractic care and give quality care by listening to our patients and allowing them the time they need to address all their concerns each visit to get to the underlying problem in the least number of visits.
As our name suggests, we want balance to be restored. This comes in two ways. The initial problem of pain of an acute complaint and then care for your spine for long term health. With our experience, pain is the number one reason people seek out chiropractic care. Initially this is what we would focus on, then it gives us time to educate our patients on all the other benefits of chiropractic care other than pain relief. The concept behind our name is if we are in pain then our balance is out of alignment. At Balance Restored Chiropractic our number one goal will be to restore the balance in your body to get you out of pain. In our logo, you will notice a disconnected circle around the spine; this symbolizes that our body is in constant change of balance to unbalance, unbalance to balance from stressors (physical, emotional, chemical) in our life. Our passion is to help our patients understand their bodies and know when and how to RESTORE their lives from the unbalanced state to balance with exercise, mental health awareness and chiropractic care.
