What Makes Our Office Different?
At Oakes Chiropractic Health Center, our aim is not just to relieve symptoms of pain, dizziness, headaches, etc., but to find the cause of the symptoms and try to help the body resolve the origin of the symptoms. Modern Western medicine is more concerned with relieving symptoms whereas we try to remove the cause, and the symptoms will resolve on a lasting basis. For example, if a patient complains of numbness/tingling/burning in their feet and is diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, they will typically be treated with a medication such as Gabapentin, Lyrica, or even Cymbalta to try to mitigate the symptoms. In our office we will try to discern whether the cause is diabetes, statin drugs, toxins, spine-related issues, chemotherapy or some other cause and treat that, while at the same time applying various therapies to relieve the symptoms. And while peripheral neuropathy might be the patient's major concern that caused them to seek our services, we will work with the patient to help them achieve their maximum health to the extent they desire.
With a thorough case history and a thorough evaluation to identify possible causes and through natural therapies to bring about changes, this office provides the opportunity to receive help where standard medical treatment has failed.
