Some patients choose to see a chiropractor to enhance athletic performance and improve movement patterns.
Patients will undergo a relevant history and physical examination for their presenting complaint. If chiropractic care is indicated patients will undergo informed consent and can initiate a pragmatic course of care. If chiropractic care is deemed inappropriate for your complaint, the proper referral to the appropriate health care provider is made.
Our chiropractor takes an evidence-informed, non-invasive, hands-on approach to care. Dr. Sean Nagasaka DC uses a combination of treatments depending on the needs of the presenting patient.
Dr. Nagasaka’s approach to care may include:
