When you visit our office, you will be welcomed with smiles and good spirits. We offer a complimentary consultation that usually takes about 20 mins. This gives both you and us an idea if this appears to be the right care for you.
If this does appear to be a natural fit, we will proceed with an chiropractic neurological, orthopedic, and physical examination placing emphasis in the cervical spine. This will let us know if you are a candidate for Upper Cervical care. If you are not, we will do our best to offer you our best suggestion, and refer you to someone who might be able to assist you further.
If you appear to be a candidate for care, the next step will be imaging. We will need to have specific images of your cervical spine. This office utilizes an actual 3D image, and NOT three 2D images. This is the most advanced in medical imaging and is less radiation than comparable x-rays. This is what technologically advanced dentists use. Imaging is absolutely necessary for care, as everyone’s anatomy is different, and we need to know exactly what we are working with. There will be no guess work in this office.
At this point, we will begin to discuss what your individual course of care will look like.
“Dr. Ryan Lawlor came into my life like an angel and fixed my broken body. I had been diagnosed with early-stage, early-onset Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 25. Faced with worsening pain, unusable hands most days, and crippling pain in most of my joints, I was depressed, hopeless, and suffering. With side-effect ridden biologics on my horizon and approaching quickly and at the insistence of my friend whose father had been helped, I decided to see what Dr. Lawlor was all about. He started with x-rays of my neck that revealed a 10 year old cheerleading injury I didn’t realize existed… After going over a course of treatment, he began his adjustments. After just two adjustments, I was sleeping through a full night, had no swelling in my hands or other joints, could work an entire shift at work on my feet without my knee feeling like it was on fire, stopped having the near-constant jaw pain that had plagued me for as long as I can remember, and in general, felt like the 26 year old I was. A year later, I still am symptom-free…. Even if you just have occasional alignment issues with your back or migraines or TMJ, I highly recommend seeing what Dr. Lawlor can do for you. When he explains the methods and reasons behind upper cervical care, you’ll be convinced it’s worth trying.”

“Dr. Lawlor is more than an upper cervical chiropractor. He is a passionate healer and patient educator. I’ve been going to chiropractors for years – no make that decades. And those visits helped – I wouldn’t have continued if I didn’t think they were doing any good. But the problem was I found I had to keep going back frequently-sometimes 2 times a week. At a gut level, I knew this wasn’t right. …So when I met Dr. Lawlor and listened to his approach – a very holistic view – I started to see things I had missed before. He helps get the body back in the correct position so it can start healing and functioning as it is designed…. Within a few weeks of treatments, I was going days without pain – something I couldn’t remember doing in years. And my progress continued… I’ve also learned how to ‘read’ my body signals better so I can head off an issue before it becomes a big problem. With Dr. Lawlor’s help, I have been pain-free far longer than I have been in decades and I am really managing my condition. It is great to be in control and feeling good! Thank you Dr. Lawlor!”

“Though skeptical to take my infant to a chiropractor, Dr. Lawlor fully explained that my idea of chiropractic isn’t what his practice is all about. He took his time to explain the methods he uses and why they could help. As hesitant as I was to trust someone with my 7 week old, as the adjustment began, I was completely comfortable with what Dr. Lawlor was doing. There were no sudden movements, no pops, no cracks. My daughter was on my lap, and my fingers were used as the pressure in the adjustment. My daughter is now 7 months old, and to date she is off her reflux medicine and hasn’t had one ear infection. We have a long road ahead of us yet, but we are very comfortable knowing that we have an alternative to constantly medicating our daughter. Additionally, Dr. Lawlor’s ‘bedside manner’ let us know he cares about his patients and believes in what he does.”

“If you are a migraine sufferer, get yourself an appointment with Dr. Lawlor as soon as possible. I dragged myself into his office in early November of last year (it was my 5th consecutive day of unrelenting pounding, nausea, light sensitivity etc.). Dr. Lawlor listened to my story with compassion and understanding. If you’ve been a victim of migraines, you know what it’s like to try to explain that feeling to someone who has never experienced it. You can’t. Dr. Lawlor is a former migraine sufferer himself, and has a great deal of empathy and insight. He gave me an adjustment and I went home and fell asleep for 8 solid hours. Needless to say, I returned for further treatment. After a few weeks I began to notice that the frequency of my migraines had been steadily decreasing, and that in general, my balance, digestion and dexterity had begun to improve. I was told by a Military neurologist that a medical migraine treatment plan that is 50% effective is considered successful. Dr. Lawlor has significantly improved those odds for me. I would absolutely recommend him, not only for his skill at upper cervical adjustments, but for his caring and sincere concern for the total well-being of his patients.”Tanya B.
