I came to Dr. Clark after a year of lower back pain caused by a heavy-lifting injury. Things had really ""set in"" by the time I saw Dr. Clark. He worked with me extensively over the course of a year to get my pelvis and lumbar vertebrae back into alignment. Now I see him for periodic adjustments, as needed.\r
Dr. Clark is excellent at diagnosing chirpractic issues and their causes. Often I assume I'm having the same problem as the last time, because it hurts in the same way. Dr. Clark will assess the situation, though, and ensure that my ""diagnosis"" of the issue is actually what is wrong. Thank goodness he does, too, because often he'll find that it's a different bone that is misaligned than last time, in fact, or that my bones are twisting in a different direction than I was guessing! He must know what he's talking about, because every time I leave the office I feel ""right."" It's such a relief having someone who pays attention!\r
Additionally, Dr. Clark has a strong understanding of different treatment methods, and is creative in his approach to solving problems. For instance, he uses mutiple methods for adjusting the lower back, which he will vary depending upon your comfort level that day (aggressive, non-aggressive, etc.). Sometimes, the adjustments themselves are minor in scope, and he'll instead use other methods to achieve the goal (blocking, muscle-memory work, or this super-intensity massage machine, for example).\r
All in all, I highly recommend Dr. Clark. I had no idea what a pickle I'd gotten myself into by not getting adjusted right after my injury, but in conjunction with massage and acupuncture, Dr. Clark has totally set me straight.
Pros: thoughtful diagnoses, innovative methods, good recollection of patient needs/care history
Cons: wish my insurance company was easier to work with - they make it hard for both me and dr. clark
