Chiropractic in Jacksonville
Choosing a chiropractor who is right for you and your family can be a difficult decision. It’s important to find someone you can identify with, as well as someone who will listen to your concerns. Dr. Haas and his staff do listen! We believe that patient education is also a big part of the process of restoring individual’s optimal health. In this website, we have provided you with some basic information about chiropractic to help you understand exactly what chiropractic physicians do.
In 1895, the first chiropractic adjustment was delivered to a man who had lost hearing in one ear. Following the adjustment, his hearing was restored. The founder of Chiropractic, D.D. Palmer, believed that by removing a subluxation, many conditions could be healed with the body’s natural strength. Through the science of chiropractic, passionate doctors are setting out to improve the health of millions of people worldwide while at the same time not interfering with the body’s natural self-rejuvenation processes.
Chiropractic physicians work directly with the nervous system to remove any inference that may be preventing the body from healing itself. Like all other areas in healthcare, new patients will undergo a consultation that involves reviewing past and current health conditions, medications, and surgery, as well as undergoing a physical examination. It is not uncommon to take x-rays to confirm the presence of subluxations and to rule out any other underlying condition(s).
Chiropractic Health Benefits
Chiropractic healing is not limited to those suffering from back pain or headaches or to those who have sustained an injury. Through the use of chiropractic care and nutrition we have many patients who are successfully treated for metabolic issues such as diabetes, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, as well as those suffering from musculoskeletal pain.
Why did we open the office in Jacksonville? I opened my office here because it’s the best place to raise a family. I was raised here, and attended the Bolles School. After I atttended the Bolles School for 2 years, I moved to South Carolina where I completed high school and then earned my BA in government from Wofford College. I then enlisted in the United States Coast Guard where I served for two years before returning to school to get a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from the National College of Chiropractic near Chicago, IL. I returned to Jacksonville in 1978 with my young family to practice chiropractic and to make sure that my children would know their grandparents. I know this city, its history, and it’s wonderful and diverse population. I couldn’t have made a better decision.
My MISSION STATEMENT is and always has been to do everything within my power to restore not only the physical, but the emotional health of my patients to the fullest extent that I can and to do so through the body’s natural healing ability, rather than using drugs (with their toxic side effects) and/ or surgery when either or both can be avoided.
As a Holistic Physician, I believe in using every natural means possible to help restore my patients’ health. In our clinic, we are focused on not only spinal adjustments to remove nerve interference, but with nutritional counseling and supplementation through a process known as Nutritional Response Testing. Dr. Haas is one of only approximately 500 practitioners in the entire country who has achieved advanced certification in the protocol of Nutritional Response Testing. We also utilize the very effective treatment of Peripheral Neuropathy which actually restores severely damaged nerve tissue. The majority of these patients get significant and permanent relief from the pain, burning, and numbness from this debilitating condition (of which there are many different causes). We utilize a holistic weight loss program (one that enables people to keep the weight off indefinitely). We do liver and whole body Detoxification as well as Chelation of chemicals and heavy metals. Massage therapy, which in our office is second to none, is provided by Barry, our very talented and popular licensed massage therapist. We also sell a state of the art mattress, one that was designed by another chiropractic physician. We offer these services because we know that at times, spinal manipulation alone is not sufficient to reach ours and our patient’s goal of total healing which we hope to achieve for each and every patient. Our goal is also for the patient to feel that they have a new lease on life, both physiologically and emotionally. So if you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, call us today at 904-260-1993 and let us help you begin your journey to achieving total health.
