If you have any questions about our services, please call the office and Dr. Emerson would be happy to provide more detailed explanations! We offer a cash discount for patients who do not have medical insurance. We look forward to helping you!


Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care

The cornerstone of Dr. Emerson’s treatment is chiropractic adjustments. He utilizes a variety of adjusting techniques to ensure a comfortable and effective treatment. These techniques include Diversified, Thompson, Flexion-Distraction, and Activator. These techniques include more traditional manual adjustments, as well as instrument and table-assisted adjustments. The safety and effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments are well documented. As an adjunct to the adjustment, many patients enjoy electric stimulation, heat, or the intersegment traction (roller) tables.

Dr. Emerson has years of training, expertise, and experience in providing pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other spine-related conditions. Whether you have a strain/sprain, disc herniation, or spinal stenosis, your chiropractic physician can help! Your specific condition will dictate your treatment plan. Many patients respond quickly to care and may be released from further treatments, while other patients prefer preventative and wellness care consisting of drop-in visits for a “tune up”.


Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness

As Dr. Emerson’s goal is not only to reduce pain, but to improve overall health, a patient’s lifestyle may need to be assessed and modified. This may include exploring the underlying reason for the pain, such as work ergonomics, sleeping position, or exercise technique.

Another very important key to individual’s health is diet. The patient may be lacking in vital nutrients or consuming foods that are not promoting health. Nutritional counseling by your highly-trained chiropractic physician can help a patient return to optimal health. Additionally, a patient may be in need of supplementation to take their health to the next level. At Back to Active Chiropractic + Wellness, we use only the highest quality supplements, specifically chosen to meet the needs of each patient.

Corrective exercises are another crucial element of care at Back To Active Chiropractic + Wellness. Although adjustments can provide significant relief for most spinal conditions, adding rehabilitative exercise can support the adjustments and provide the patients a way to help manage their condition in between visits with Dr. Emerson.

Treatment at our office is not limited to the spine. We can also perform manual therapy, stretching and exercises for numerous injuries including the wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, hips, and feet. Dr. Emerson has years of experience treating athletes - from weekend warriors to professionals. Patients who have recently undergone surgery may still be having pain that can be addressed through treatment in our office.


Car Accident Recovery

Car Accident Recovery

Have you recently been in a car accident? Are you having significant pain from a whiplash injury and not sure what to do? Chiropractic care can provide significant relief! Dr. Emerson is well-trained to provide complete care for patients recovering from these injuries. He provides gentle treatment following the accident, during the acute stage of injury, and then offers continuing care until the patient has fully recovered.

Dr. Emerson is also able to help his patients understand the whole process of getting care following a car crash. He can answer your questions about finding a lawyer or can instruct you on getting the correct information from the insurance company.
