Chiropractic Care and Adjustments – What To Expect

If you’ve never had a chiropractic adjustment, you may feel somewhat questionable about it.

Dr. Gus’ technique is easy on the body and only uses the minimum motion to adjust the patient’s spine and other joints. In fact, he will remind you that the table does most of the work and is painless.

The feeling you get after your first adjustment varies from person to person. You could be dealing with an injury from an accident and someone else could be looking for migraine release. Everyone’s dealing with a different issue so their experience will differ. It is our goal at Genuine Care that we bring everyone to their greatest potential of health as soon as possible.

Getting Started – Customizing Your Adjustments

No human is exactly the same as another. We are all different from the inside out. Because of this, Genuine Care, to facilitate your needs, begins with an X-ray examination. Dr. Gus then studies your X-rays and sits down with you to discuss your personal Report Of Findings. In the Report of findings you will be informed about your current situation and what steps you will take towards correcting it. If you are concerned about X-rays, our X-ray machine has been built to use the least amount of radiation possible. Our machine also has high resolution capabilities to see things that ordinary X-ray machines don’t show you (or the doctor).

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

  • Not only for bad backs

    Spinal subluxations are specific sites of spinal malfunction causing irritation to the body’s central computer – the nervous system. When the spine is free of subluxations, health benefits follow and a person can express their full potential.

  • Reduction In Meds and Drugs

    We have found that with Chiropractic Care there is less need for strong pain relief medications or psychiatric drugs.

  • Engages the bodies natural ability to heal itself

    Misalignment of the spine inhibits the human body to function normally and heal itself. It is very common that chiropractic adjustments help the body heal from things as simple as the common cold or flu to asthma.

  • Improved Posture

    Over time we as busy people abuse our body. We sit, stand and sleep in all different positions for a variety of reasons. Chiropractic will work to pinpoint where your spine is not moving properly and address your stance, height differences, tilting, curvatures and outward or inward turning to help you work toward standing stronger.

  • Be Happier!

    Published research indicates that Chiropractic Care reduces stress, anxiety and depression levels.

What our clients have to say about our chiropractic care


In May 2013, I was riding my motorcycle and I had to make a quick stop to avoid a car and my upper back immediately started to hurt. I would use a heating pad and take over the counter medicines for the pain but the relief was only alleviated temporarily. I came into Genuine Care and after about a week my upper back pain went away. I was able to move without pain!!


I had been suffering with chronic, debilitating neck and mid- to lower-back pain stemming from injuries sustained during an auto accident. I could not sit nor stand for periods longer than a few minutes without experiencing pain throughout my spine. My quality of life was diminishing year after year.
