Our Primary Focus
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.
Step 1 - Examination & Consultation
Our process initially starts with an examination and consultation to see if we can help but also address if we are a good fit for each other. We follow up with digital motion study x-rays to assess structure, function, stability, osseous pathology, and locate Subluxation (see definition below).
Step 2 - Personalized Plan
The patient then returns to review the x-rays with the doctor in depth where they will be provided a detailed report as well. This gives us the time to review what exactly is going on and together to formulate a personalized plan of care to make the changes that you need while also choosing goals for the patient to achieve throughout the course of care. We lay out a clear path towards correction which entails what the adjustment experience should be while also reviewing what patients should expect to be doing at home, i.e exercise, stretches, home equipment use, rehab, supplementation etc.
Step 3 - Re-Examination
After a patient has completed their initial course of care, we do a re-examination and take post x-rays which are than reviewed to ensure that the expected changes have occurred. At this re-exam we also go through all patient goals to ensure that they have all been met and that the patient is cleared to be moved to what we call “wellness care”.
Step 4 - Wellness Care
The wellness care phase with most patients is where our focus is primarily completion of curve restoration and working with the patient to ensure that they don’t abandon the changes that have been made while also working together to identify the frequency that works best with the patient moving forward. Wellness patients find that they are here markedly less frequent and able to manage well between visit with the exercises, stretches, tools, tips and techniques that they have been taught for home use.
A chiropractic adjustment focuses on the underlying cause of improper tone/tension within the nervous system. Specific spinal adjustments are made to stimulate the nervous system to pay attention to areas of the body holding patterns of tension and altered tone.
“A subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neural integrity, and may influence organ system function and general health.”
What Others Say
"Dr. Kaplan is super knowledgeable, thorough and precise when adjusting me. He has so much advice to give to help me with my chronic pain. I love the fact that Dr. Kaplan really goes to the root of the issue and not just treats the symptoms. In my case it's focusing on restoring my spinal curve. Great goal setting! I have seen great improvements already."
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."
What Others Say
"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!"
