The Initial Visit:
The initial visit includes a complete history and a comprehensive examination, which includes physical, orthopedic and chiropractic spinal exams. After the examination, Dr. Bogart will discuss his findings with you as well as a treatment plan, including diagnosis and appropriate timeframe for treatment. This initial appointment generally requires about one hour.
The primary treatment is called the chiropractic adjustment. This adjustment realigns the vertebrae to their normal position to allow the body to return to its normal physiological state.
Dr. Bogart is trained in a variety of gently adjusting techniques which are adapted to meet the specific needs of the patient, such as: Diversified, Activator, Cox Flexion/Distraction for disc herniations, Thompson Drop, Gonstead, and Extremity.
Dr. Bogart offers a complimentary in-office consultation* regarding your specific healthcare needs and the services available.
(*Consultation does not include examination, diagnosis, x-rays, or treatment.)

Ultrasound Therapy is a therapeutic treatment using high-frequency sound waves (over a million cycles per second) administered in the region of soft tissue injuries. A gel is used to help conduct these sound waves to the skin.
Stimulates the healing process
Speeds metabolism and improves blood flow to the tissues
Reduces nerve root irritation and pain
Enhances the body's natural healing process
What is a Trigger Point and how does it work? A trigger point is an area of increased muscle metabolism causing nodules of muscle fibers and tenderness which interferes with normal muscle function. This can restrict normal range of motion and may refer pain to other parts of the body. The skin is gently pressed to locate underlying nodules of muscle fibers; the muscle is compressed with sustained pressure to relax it and 'break up' the nodules.
Reduces chronic muscle pain and muscle tightness
Improves muscle tone
Promotes better circulation
Enhances the range of motion and muscle function
A mechanical massage is a technique using a mechanical apparatus to stimulate and relax the soft tissues of the body for pain reduction.
Increases circulation to the soft tissues and muscles
Increases metabolism to the area
Promotes the healing process
Cryotherapy is a term that describes the application of ice, ice massage, and ice compresses to the soft tissues to cause a vaso-constriction or reduced blood flow to the area in order to decrease swelling/edema.
Helps reduce swelling and inflammation
Numbs affected area and reduces pain
Hot packs are used to raise the temperature of soft tissues directly below the surface of the skin which causes a vaso-dilation/increased blood flow to the area.
Helps increase circulation
Relaxes muscle tension
Enhances joint function
