Many patients come to Vital Family Chiropractic in pain, and we are always happy to help patients remove their discomfort in order to renew health and vitality. However, we prescribe to the vitalism philosophy of chiropractic care. That means we take time to understand the underlying causes of pain as well as any related side effects such as chronic headaches or fatigue. Dr. Julie Peterson starts the chiropractic process with a thorough assessment of each patient. We combine traditional diagnostic x-rays and visual examinations with a detailed health and systems history and explanation of any current or past conditions that may be related to the pain patients are experiencing when they visit.
