Dr. Daniel Smith, DC

I first discovered chiropractic when I was in pain myself, as a young athlete. I was in a car accident and had a whiplash injury that was setting me up for a lifetime headaches and neck pain treatment. Fortunately, my dad sent me to a neighborhood chiropractor who knew what he was doing. One adjustment and my pain lifted; my mood brightened; and the lights went on inside me. I knew chiropractic would be my life’s work. Since that day, I haven’t looked back.

Chiropractic care offers holistic healing for mind, body and spirit. Dr. Dan spends quality time with each patient to show you an alternative to drugs or surgery.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Dan use Rapid Release Therapy (RRT), a therapeutic tool for the relief of soft tissue problems affecting nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments. These “trigger points” of stored tension feel like tight, tender knots in your muscles. RRT often feels like deep massage and can be very relaxing; when combined with traditional chiropractic, it can lead to powerful healing.

I focus on combining specialized muscle work with gentle chiropractic adjustments. Just as a broken bone must be properly set before it can heal, muscles must be reset before a spinal adjustment. By working the muscles first, they can help restore your body’s natural balance. This creates an optimal environment for the body to heal itself.

Chiropractic will help you get out of immediate discomfort usually in a few short visits. It is a natural – and proven – approach that works very quickly. There’s no need to live with chronic pain.

What happens in a Chiropractic visit?

Dr. Dan doesn’t hurry. He provides an opportunity for you to breathe, relax and unwind.

  • The focus is on chronic pain. This is pain that lasts more than three weeks and/or hasn’t responded to other treatments.
  • Each treatment is customized for your specific needs, whatever is happening on the day of your appointment.
  • The treatment begins with therapeutic bodywork at the location of your pain or tension.
    This releases any trigger points and gives focused attention to specific areas of pain.
  • Then, in an atmosphere of relaxation and healing, Dr. Dan will make necessary adjustments using diverse techniques and a gentle form of traditional spinal alignment.

If your body is your temple, be good to it! For 25 years Dr. Dan has practiced this wholesome and good approach to pain management, so that patients can treat each day like the gift that it is.
