Skefich is my favorite because of her gentle adjusting and her
confident, calm presence that stays with me when I walk out the
door. Previously I had 3-day migraines and head pressure, and
foot bones jammed into painful positions."

After your exam and first treatment, Dr.
Skefich will give a realistic treatment plan based on her findings
in your body. She will also give recommendations as to exercises
and supplements that are specific to aiding your recovery. Her
treatments tend to be more effective than the typical chiropractic
approach due to the fact that she addresses not only the joints,
but the muscles and the spinal cord system.
Therefore her treatment
plans tend to involve fewer treatments than the typical chiropractor.
She will give her recommendation as to how long it will take (in
visits and in weeks) to get rid of your symptoms, and then how
long it will take to get your body down to a neutral tension level
beyond simply brushing off the top layer of tension that caused
your pain. Dr. Skefich lets you decide which approach is best
for you (the symptom-based or the tension-based). If you decide
the longer and more in-depth treatment plan, you can avoid a reccurrance
of your main problem (as some people have suffered long-term occasional
episodes of pain needlessly), or you can even avoid other problems
that you may not have been aware were brewing.
Since the spine
is the gateway between the central nervous system (i.e., your
brain and spinal cord) and every muscle, organ and tissue in the
body, spinal health therefore is vital to overall health. The
treatments not only give you relief, but also enhance your vitality
by removing the static that physical tension creates in the
Dr. Skefich is trained to diagnose and
treat problems of the musculo-skeletal system. She utilizes orthopedic
and neurological tests, and is exceptionally skilled at palpation
of normal versus abnormal motion patterns in the soft tissues
and joints. Where tissues or joints do not move normally, there
is often pain to the touch, and there is less blood and lymphatic
circulation which can lead to degradation and sickness of that
Unlike the traditional chiropractor who
may only adjust the joints of the spine, Dr. Skefich is proud
to employ a variety of techniques. Extensive soft tissue therapy is available in tandem with Dr. Skefich's chiropractic work, in the form of "back-to-back" chiro/massage treatments, or can be scheduled individually (see Soft Tissue Therapy).
and her staff invite you to come in for an assessment and adjustment.
Many patients remark that they had waited too long, and that they
had wished they came in earlier rather than having had lived with
pain for weeks, months, and even years. Most patients get remarkable
improvement after just one visit, and even in the more difficult
cases attain noticeable regular improvements from the treatments
as they progress into wellness.
