Kaplan Chiropractic Wellness Center
Our chief focus with our patients is restorative/corrective care. What this means is that our chief concern is correcting what caused the patient to have dysfunction is the first place. We have found through research and professional experience that symptom based care though palliative, doesn’t allow for lasting change. Patients in this office can expect change which can be documented, proven and experienced.
Treating Patients For:
The World health organization defines Health as “ a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
The Chiropractic approach is to enhance the quality of life in a patient so that they can flourish and not to simply mitigate symptoms. We know symptoms are often the last to show up and often times the first to disappear most likely due to the fact that only about 8 percent of nerves are for perception of pain.
Professional, amateur, high school, college weekend warriors… all the same goals.. be more functional , fullest potential, free of interference, non-compensating, be your best athletic you. Dr. Kaplan has worked and continues to work with many college and professional athletes in every sport in the office season to prepare them for the rigors of the lifestyle. Athletes know that corrective care allows them to move better, be more functional and achieve at the highest levels.
Postural Correction Through Restorative Chiropractic Care
In our office, patients receive restorative chiropractic care aimed at restoring the natural spinal curvatures which in turn , reduce stress on the surrounding soft tissues structures, reduce stress and slow or stop the onset of the degenerative process (wolfes law) , regain ideal postural position to mitigate effects of chronic postural distortion from technology, whiplash incidents, technology, stress amongst others. This is done through highly researched and repeatable steps using pre and post motion studies while utilizing the latest in postural research and corrective rehab in conjunction with specific chiropractic adjustments.
Wellness Care for Expectant Mothers
Seeing a chiropractor for regular adjustments during pregnancy can help relieve back pain that stems from relaxed ligaments and joints due to the natural production of hormones which cause a relaxation response during pregnancy. . Back pain among pregnant women may also be caused by postural problems that occur due to a heavier and lower positioned baby. Research also shows that a mother receiving chiropractic care can have a more comfortable pregnancy and labor due to ideal positioning of the pelvis and its associated effects on the ligaments that attach baby to the pelvis. Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy is also to help establish balance in the mother’s pelvis. Because of a lifetime of stress and trauma to her spine and pelvis, her pelvic opening may be compromised, resulting in a less than optimum passage for the baby. They further state that the diameter of the woman’s pelvis is decreased when the sacrum is displaced. In this office we work with the mom and her caregiver be it her OB or midwife for ideal pregnancy. Please note “ Chiropractic is not a substitute for your primary caregiver during pregnancy”
Birth though miraculous can at times be slightly traumatic to the child. Many parents may report “ a difficult birth” which could mean the labor was lengthy in time, the position of the child was not ideal, they needed to be manually turned or extracted amongst a host of other scenarios.
Motor Vehicle Incident and Whiplash
Motor vehicle incidents have become more common place than ever before and though the safety of cars now can prevent serious pathology and even death; whiplash occurs as much as ever than before due to the acceleration and deceleration in these incidents which puts extreme force on the spine and soft tissues.
Research tells us that the spine is a single functional unit and alterations to our natural curvatures and surrounding soft tissues occurs in whiplash incidents. We know that hyperextension most noted in the lower cervical spine accelerates degenerative disc disease and that the probability of future disc/joint disease increases over and above had this incident had not occurred. More so, we now know that damage to the car does not directly correlate to injury due to the ability of deformation of the actual vehicle during impact.

What Others Say
"I have been to couple other chiropractic care offices over the years and would strongly recommend Kaplan. Other offices were good, but Kaplan is great. Easy scheduling, quick appointments with little wait time. 30 minutes is my average visit. You can walk in and go directly into your therapy routine. Usually finish while they are calling my name for adjustment. Very skilled and knowledgeable staff. They follow up with you to make sure everything is meeting your goals. Dr. Kaplan finds a way to track all his patients, you can tell he cares, and has even checked in on me after visits, later that day, to make sure I was feeling better. Highly recommend."

"Awesome Doc, GREAT place to be. Dr Kaplan is amazing, knowledgeable and you can tell he really cares. He goes through everything with you before you even start care! Rare is the doctor that can explain and make sense of why you need the care you need. I cannot recommend this place enough. I have a good understanding of what's wrong with me and why I need the care I need. Thanks, Doc!"
