Take It from an Athlete
Dr. Joseph Medlin has 20 years of experience in rehabilitating the spine from acute and chronic injuries. As an outdoorsman and avid fly fisherman, he himself has experienced sports injuries and their debilitating effects, so he has first-hand insight to his patients' conditions and the road ahead.
At the Life West Chiropractic College in the Bay Area, Dr. Medlin learned many spinal adjustment techniques, some of which are not offered at other institutions. With this expansive knowledge-base, Dr. Medlin is able to choose the right technique for the condition he is treating.
Dr. Medlin specializes in acute and chronic spinal pain as a result of auto accidents, workplace injuries, and sports injuries. Often a spinal injury can cause pain and numbness to radiate to the neck, shoulders, ribs, hips, arms, or legs. All of these can be treated with a comprehensive plan of rehabilitation that includes a combination of chiropractic care, physical therapy, and therapeutic massage.
Never In A Hurry
Patient education is an important part of Dr. Medlin's practice at Spine Tree Chiropractic. He takes his time listening to your description of the injury, then applies the most appropriate chiropractic adjustment technique for it. Dr. Medlin makes sure that he fully explains your treatment plan. If there are exercise routines to be conducted at home, Dr. Medlin spends time going through the movements in the office to make sure that you understand what needs to be done at home. In most cases, Dr. Medlin spends 30 to 45 minutes with each patient.
Documentation and Treatment of Injuries
We handle work accidents, automobile accidents, and other pain injuries. In all cases, it is important to document any work or auto injures as soon as possible, even if extreme pain has not started. Your body can disguise the pain with its adrenaline surge and it can take days or weeks for it to show up. If you have documented the accident at the time it happened, the origin of the pain can be traced back to it.
