Chiropractic care helps in a variety of ways! Our clients enjoy increased movement, better range of motion, decreased pain, less stress and strain on muscles, and better quality of life. Everyday, unavoidable stress can throw us out of alignment like parenting, working, and travelling (don't get us started on yardwork). Chiropractic care helps you and your family get their mojo back and keep it forever!
The "pop" sound that many people hear while receiving a chiropractic adjustment is a small release of gas from the joint. The sound has no bearing on whether or not the adjustment was effective. Research shows that there can be anywhere from 0-8 audible sounds from one adjustment. In fact, as it is said in our office, "it is more important to hear a bone go out of place than to think you heard a bone go in place."

Of course! Dr. Pritchard is passionate about helping moms throughout pregnancy, and new and expecting mamas are common at Potent Chiropractic. Chiropractic care helps make pregnancy more comfortable for moms and helps ensure proper development of the baby.
It's possible to become addicted to anything that makes you feel this good! ;)
100%! Dr. Pritchard has had patients stop by the office on their way home from the hospital with their newborns. Parents know - kids undergo many falls and traumas throughout childhood. Add the stress of sports, school, friends, family - kids should be checked at minimum once per month to make sure they develop strong and healthy.
Chiropractors have about the same amount of schooling as a medical doctor. The difference is, Dr. Pritchard has taken more coursework in anatomy and radiology than the typical MD, while they have more training on pharmacology and medicating a problem. Dr. Pritchard received a 4-year Biology degree specializing in pre-medicine followed by another 4-year doctorate of Chiropractic degree.
We prefer you come see us before you have a spinal surgery, as it is best to avoid surgical intervention whenever possible. However, Dr. Pritchard has taken care of numerous patients with spinal surgery, and loves providing gentle care to help his patients get back to an optimal lifestyle!
Everybody is different depending on age, traumas, work activity, and hobbies. Most people notice immediate improvement after their first adjustment, but Dr. Pritchard will develop a game plan for everyone in order to get each of his patients the greatest quality of life as possible. Each individuals needs and health goals are taken into consideration as a plan is developed.
Dr. Pritchard delivers some of the best adjustments I have ever had! There is no forcefulness and he is very gentle. You can tell he has taken the time to learn from the best. He is willing to listen to you as well as communicate with you what exactly he is going to be doing. I was able to get my feet and wrists worked on along with my entire spine. I cannot recommend coming to Dr. Pritchard enough!
