What are adjustments?

Chiropractors look at the body as a whole before they ever start with adjustments. When a part of your body is injured or faces some type of trauma it can cause issues to surrounding structures and tissues. In the long run, this impacts your overall health. An adjustment focuses on realigning the injured area and helping your entire body heal. Sometimes one adjustment does the trick, while other times you might need multiple adjustments or even additional therapies like dry-needling. Dr. Foss, D.C. brings experience in both adjustments, and other chiropractic specialties.

“I am so happy to be working with Dr. Bryan Foss and Dr. Johnson; I am grateful to be a part of such an exemplary practice. I find this work both enjoyable and impactful, which is hard to find in healthcare. Being a part of an integrated practice that offers so many modalities to treat pain outside of opioids has been my most rewarding experience in healthcare yet. The opioid epidemic in our country has become such a negative aspect of healthcare, I am proud to be providing pain relief outside of that.”

Patricia Fitzsimmons, LMT

I have been a licensed massage therapist for the past 4 years specializing in therapeutic, deep tissue, Swedish, hot stone, myofascial release, sports massage, Thai massage, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, prenatal, TMJ issues, Reiki (level I – II), therapeutic massage and stress-reducing massages. My goal is to assist in improving my client’s health and enhancing their well-being. I believe that a massage can balance a person’s mind, body, and soul. Massage revitalizes our most precious resources in order to improve physical, mental and emotional health. I have high expectations for myself because I feel very strongly that those to whom I report deserve the best.

Prior to being a licensed massage therapist, I was a CNA for more than 17 years. One of my job duties were to include active and passive range-of-motion exercise guidance for a wide variety of clients, including those with spinal cord injuries (both para and quadriplegic) and terminal care (from adolescence to elderly.) In 1993, I became a Certified Natural Health Professional. I acquired experience in nutrition and natural health alternatives in order to better educate my clients on how they can heal themselves using natural remedies.
