Stop Chasing Symptoms • Get To The Root Cause • Experience Lasting Results
“I would highly recommend Elevation Chiropractic to anyone whether you think you need it or not…more than likely it’s going to help your life! The entire staff is beyond welcoming, they truly treat you like family and we couldn’t be happier!”
These are the four areas we work to optimize at Elevate Chiropractic
Our mission is to educate and bring as many families as possible back to optimal health through corrective care from a chiropractor and the 4 Fundamentals. In order to fulfill this mission, we believe education must be our first priority.
Quality nutrients are not only important, they are essential to your overall health. Each chiropractor makes navigating through the nutritional maze of eating healthy understandable and easy!
Your overall health is determined by how your body is functioning on the inside not merely the absence of symptoms or disease. Our approach to care from a chiropractor starts with understanding the role of the nervous system in controlling and coordinating all function and healing inside of the human body.
There are so many facets to fitness but the one that counts is the one that ensures that oxygen is being delivered to the cells. Oxygen is essential for health. Driving oxygen deep down to the cellular level facilitates an internal healing environment for the human body.
Compassion. Love. Understanding. Warmth. From the moment you step into Elevation Chiropractic, you’ll know we offer something completely different than what you’ve experienced before. Our doctors not only work to improve your health but will give you lifestyle strategies so that you can lead a more fulfilling, abundant life, well into your later years.
Our unique approach to chiropractic care is about helping you to get the most out of your life. Along with the care from a chiropractor, we provide customized exercise and nutrition programs made to suit your needs.
Our mission is to educate and reach as many families as possible, helping them reach their health potential through the Four Fundamentals of Health created by Dr. Matt. By focusing on these principles, we seek to help you reach your full potential:

“They spend time explaining in great detail your issues, their short term and long term goals for you. They are
refreshingly transparent about every aspect of the process.”
Stop masking the symptoms and get to the root cause of the problem
We want to hear your story, we want to learn how we can help you. This is your chance to tell us what has worked and what hasn’t, what your goals are and how a chiropractor can help you reach your potential. The care from our chiropractor starts with the most important thing…listening to you!
We know how important it is to get rid of your symptoms but we realize it’s more important to understand what caused them in the first place. The symptom isn’t the problem but let us know there is one.
Our doctors will study all of your information, exam findings and review those with you. They will then determine what’s going on and provide you with several options in regards to action steps. You can then share with them what you feel is best.
We are all taught to ask the same questions when it comes to our health: “How do I feel?”, “What is it called (what’s the diagnosis)?”, and “How do I treat it?”. The problem is we haven’t been taught to ask these questions: “What caused it in the first place?”, “Why isn’t it going away?”, and “What will it cost if I don’t get it fixed?”.
My mom battled neck pain, headaches, digestive issues, sleep problems, high blood pressure, hormonal symptoms, anxiety and depression for years, she also saw doctor after doctor looking for answers. The problem is she didn’t ask the right questions and neither did her doctors. Her health continued to decline along with her quality of life, her ability to work, quality time spent with family, and her capacity to do the things she loved to do. Not fixing the problem impacts every aspect of your life and we are committed to making sure that doesn’t happen to you.
I can’t tell you how many people come into our office and can point to the exact moment, sometimes decades earlier, when, and how, their problem first started. At our office, we focus on how your body is functioning as opposed to how it is feeling. When the body is functioning correctly, the feeling will take care of itself. Unfortunately, too many patients only decide to seek care when they start feeling bad enough. The problem with that is pain is usually the last thing to show up and the first thing to go away. It’s the tip of the iceberg, just because it’s the only thing you see doesn’t mean it’s the only thing that’s there.
When those patients that have been dealing with a problem for years or decades start to function (and feel) better, one of the things almost every one of them says is, “I wish I would have found you guys earlier.” Not only could they have avoided unnecessary suffering, but if they’d come in earlier a chiropractor may have been able to help them more. You see, matter has limitations. When you experience a trauma, like a car accident, your body changes. If a chiropractor is able to treat you right away, it’s much more likely you’ll get back to your pre-injury status because the changes haven’t set in yet. The longer you wait, the more those changes become permanent. Scar tissue builds up, the way you move changes, nerves can be damaged and more. If we get to you a long time after that accident, there is a good chance we can get you feeling better but there is a certain amount of function that will never come back. If you aren’t able to function at 100%, you will be more susceptible to injuries going forward.
Your body doesn’t want you to be in pain forever so it starts to adapt if an injury isn’t treated. For example, if you have knee pain in your right knee, your body may start to favor that knee and avoid putting as much weight on it when you walk. That changes the way you walk, which puts stress on your lower back. It also can cause your other knee to bear more weight, so if the problem isn’t addressed you can end up with two bad knees. The body’s ability to adapt is powerful, but those adaptations are meant to be short term solutions. A lot of times when our bodies adapt it allows us to feel better even as the function decreases. If those adaptations are left to set in, eventually the pain or other symptoms will return.
When those patients I mentioned earlier wish they’d found us sooner it’s because they realize how much time, energy, and money has been wasted over the years dealing with symptoms. I implore you to not wait to get checked out, because waiting very rarely helps. It will only help to hide the underlying problem and can create other compensatory issues as well as turning the original injury into a chronic one. The last thing you want is to have a feeling of regret that you should have taken care of something sooner. When dealing with a chronic health problem, I think of it like planting a tree. They say the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, but the second best time is now. So don’t delay any longer. Schedule your appointment with one of our amazing Doctors today!
