Frequently Asked Questions
Is chiropractic treatment safe?
Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of treatment in all of health care, especially when compared to medication and surgery. It is estimated that 140,000 people die each year related to drug related reactions. Another report estimates that 1 in 500 general surgeries result in death. Insurance Companies that cover doctors found chiropractic to be the lowest risk to cause injury.
What can I expect during a visit?
Each patients pain relief plan is determined by evaluating their individual needs. Since not every patient’s condition is identical every treatment plan is designed to ensure a patient is pain free as quick as possible. Treatment begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Thiry followed by a comprehensive examination and thorough report of finds. Upon determination that chiropractic care will be beneficial, Dr. Thiry will create a treatment plan specifically designed for you which explains each injury and further explains the benefits of chiropractic treatment. The ultimate goal of treatment at Personal Care Chiropractic is to combine chiropractic treatment with patient education on posture, ergonomics, stretching and exercise. This ensures that you and the doctor are working together to relieve pain fast and improve overall health.

I am a triathlete and suffered from plantar fascitis off and on for years. Since seeing Dr. Rob
I have been pain free and able to train without interruption. Thanks Doc.
I had shooting pain in my right arm for a week. After seeing Dr. Thiry he explained what was wrong, how to fix it
and how to stop it from coming back. I’m doing great. Thanks Doc.
I work at a computer and used to get neck pain and headaches. Dr. Thiry not only fixed my pain,
he also showed me how to set up my computer work area to help prevent the pain from coming back.
I have been great ever since.
I have been having knee pain and ITband pain for the past month on all my runs. Dr. Thiry explained that my pelvis was
rotated causing my gait to be off leading to extra stress on the lateral side of my right leg. With adjustments to
correct the rotation in my pelvis and the Graston soft tissue technique for my ITband, I am running again and pain free.
Thanks Dr. Thiry

The pain was shooting down both of my arms and I was afraid to move. Dr. Thiry came in after hours to see me.
I was able to sleep the first night after treatment. He helped fix the problem in a short time.
Thanks for all you do Dr. T.
