Chiropractic Care

A chiropractic spinal adjustment is a gentle and specific force delivered to spinal vertebrae to correct misalignment and relieve nerve interference. Dr. Holt uses a variety of adjusting techniques encompassing both light force and manual methods to best suit the patient’s preference and optimal care needs. Our office is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and advanced adjusting tools allowing us to provide the best care for each of our patients. 

Specialization in Auto Accidents & Trauma 

Studies have shown that a 10 miles per hour “fender bender” can inflict up to 17 g forces on the spine. This trauma can cause havoc with the spine, neck, shoulders, ligaments, muscles and the nervous system. Chiropractic has long been the care of choice for trauma, especially auto accidents. Most people do not, however, realize that almost three-fourths of injuries are caused by repetitive stressors to the body such as working at a computer for long hours, repetitive lifting, bending, twisting, standing or sitting for extended periods without a break.  These types of stresses occurring at work or at home also cause significant structural problems which lead to major health concerns.  It is imperative that any person who suffers any acute or chronic injury be seen by a chiropractor to check for nerve interference and/or spinal damage so they can continue to live happy, healthful, productive lives.

Chiropractic for Children

Chiropractic is most beneficial for children because their nervous systems are just developing.  When subluxations are removed at an early stage of life, it allows the nervous system to function at a much higher level and enables the child to fight off disease on their own without the use of excessive pharmaceutical drugs. Chiropractic care for children is growing rapidly as more and more pediatricians are beginning to recommend chiropractic for many ailments such as ear infections, colic, reflux, enuresis (bed wetting), ADHD, ADD, mood disorders, chronic illness and many more conditions. It has been noted that when a child receives care from early on in life his or her incidence of disease is much less common and much less severe.

Full Spine Rehabilitation

We understand the importance of correction and prevention.  At Holt Chiropractic & Massage, we are fully equipped to correct the underlying issues that are common in long standing problems.   Our largest room is dedicated to get to the root of your problem, to correct it, and to prevent it from recurring.  We will integrate the latest techniques, exercises, and stretches into your individualized health care plan to help you achieve a full recovery.

Cold Laser Therapy

At Holt Chiropractic & Massage, cold laser therapy is one more powerful tool that is available for your integrated care plan.  The clinical benefits of laser energy were discovered in 1967. Since the late 1970s laser treatment for pain has been widely used in Europe and Asia. Now, since its FDA approval in 2001, cold laser therapy is quickly gaining popularity in the United States.  Recent research studies for soft tissue injuries (muscle, ligament and joint) show that patients who received cold laser therapy in addition to their other treatment demonstrated a 40–50% faster rate of repair and greater strength of the injured tissues when treatment was completed. The evidence is compelling. Cold Laser therapy is a safe and effective modality that is proving to play an important role in rehabilitative health care.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy has gained popularity because of its effectiveness in treating pain and restoring mobility without the use of drugs. Massage Therapy is beneficial for a wide range of problems from whiplash to occupational over-use conditions.  Our massage team uses a variety of techniques to soothe tight muscles and melt away painful muscle knots. This speeds recovery by reducing adhesions and scar tissue formation in muscles, which are often linked to postural problems and can limit normal movement and cause pain.  As part of an integrated care team, the massage therapists have access to the other providers' findings, allowing them to apply more effective treatment. Our therapists create individualized patient care, working where you need it, with techniques that are the most effective for you.

Digital X-Ray

At Holt Chiropractic and Massage we believe in using the latest diagnostic technology. This includes, state of the art, digital x-ray. Using digital x-ray allows us to transfer your x-rays and records, per your request, via computer instantly and cost effectively. Most importantly, digital x-ray allows us to view the images with greater clarity therefore having a more precise diagnosis.

Spinal and Neurological Health Scan

Our state of the art comprehensive computerized health scanning equipment electronically evaluates patterns of spinal and nerve function. These series of tests are painless and noninvasive. The results allow Dr. Holt to asess overall health and evaluate any potential neurological problems.  These tests are analogous to a Dentist finding a cavity long before there is pain.

Foot Evaluation and Orthotics

Here at Holt Chiropractic & Massage, we know that good posture and joint health begin where the foot meets the ground. Like a quality foundation in the building of a new home, our feet are our foundation to build upon good biomechanics above that foundation. We assess your foot biomechanics through the use of a computerized gaitscan where 2700 sensors map your foot posture and walking pattern. Our foot evaluation process helps us determine whether an orthotic device would be a valuable part of your overall success with your treatment plan.  If you are in need of orthotics, we can help you determine which orthotic to purchase and aide in the custom fitting process.  We will make sure your orthotics are right for you.
