Chiropractor West Los Angeles
One of the most popular forms of health care in West Los Angeles today is chiropractic. Patients have been helped with countless healthcare problems since 1895. As the success stories of chiropractic spread, the number of patients that see chiropractors continues to rise. This article will help you to understand some of the amazing things that chiropractic care can do for you.
Chiropractic is the art and science of manually moving or removing joint fixations in the spine and throughout the body. Joint fixations affect your bodyís mobility and movement, but they also have a muscular component and a neurological component.
Perhaps most important for you in choosing a chiropractor, is that Arts and Sciences are invariably subject to different interpretations and practice. The chiropractic treatment I provide is based upon not only my education but also by my own experiences as a chiropractic patient. As a chiropractor and as a patient, I am relatively conservative. As such, I believe that your recovery and ultimately my success, lies in how little treatment you need Ė not how much. Find it, fix it and leave it alone used to be the first chiropractorís motto.
Unfortunately, in todayís economy, multiple visits and monthly treatment plans are many chiropractorís business and marketing models, but have little to do with a patientís overall health. No one could possibly know how you and your body will respond to any treatment, especially as a new patient. I can tell you that your initial treatment should provide some significant improvement, and that it should be the best indicator of your overall improvement with chiropractic care. After your initial treatment, you will have the best insight as to how effective your treatment can be. With that initial experience and feedback, you will become a part of the decision making process and hopefully the recovery process.
Iím Dr. Becker, and Iíve been a practicing chiropractor in and around Century City and Beverly Hills for the past 21 years. Born and raised in West L.A., I graduated from U.C.L.A. and then from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. After a few years of practice, I went back for additional and specialized training in both Chiropractic Neurology and Chiropractic Orthopedics. Given that additional training and expertise, I was asked to serve as an expert consultant for not only the California Board of Chiropractic Examiners but the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as well.
I ultimately used my combined education and taught post-graduate courses across the United States and Canada. During the same time, I also served my local chiropractic society as their director, sitting on the Board of Directors of the California Chiropractic Association for more than seven consecutive years. After that time, I again received specialized training in Manipulation Under Anesthesia and became the second chiropractor to ever become a member of the Allied Medical Staff of Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
