Choosing a chiropractor that is right for you.

BODY FIRST encourages anyone looking for chiropractic care to search for Doctor of chiropractic who is professional, experienced, respected, and trusted. In searching for a reference for a chiropractor some of the best sources of referrals is your primary care physician, family and friends.
Dr. Erickson has experience working with a wide range of clients from children, pregnant women, athletes, the elderly, and everyone else.

A good Chiropractor:

  • will spend time each patient

  • will refer you to other health care professionals if needed

  • will suggest alternative or complimentary treatment if needed.

  • does not try to "sell" a patient a treatment plan including asking you to sign contracts for lengthy "treatments"

  • does not tell you need chiropractic treatment even though you are pain free and in good health

  • does not claim chiropractic can cure conditions such as acne, multiple sclerosis, or heart diseases

Your initial appointment consists of a comprehensive health interview and examination so that your doctor can ensure your safety and determine the best course of treatment for you. No X-ray is generally required during the first visit. This is also an opportunity to ask questions so you feel confident and comfortable with your treatment.

Your Treatment

Your treatment may include chiropractic adjustments using Diversified, Palmer Package, Thompson, Flexion-Distraction, Activator, and other methods. Myofascial release, massage, heat/cold therapy, acupuncture, acupressure, trigger point therapy and numerous other techniques and modalities may also be incorporated into your treatment. Your doctor will work with you to develop your treatment plan. If needed Dr. Erickson will refer patients to other health professionals such as physicians, massage therapists, mental health professionals, and physical therapists. How often you visit depends on your needs not a rigid "treatment protocol plan". Ultimately we hope that our patients feel great and do not need to see a chiropractor except perhaps just to drop by and say "hi".
