Ultrasound Therapy Therapeutic ultrasound or ultrasound therapy uses high frequency sound ways to penetrate deep tissues and create a healing effect. Most patients feel nothing or experience a warming and relaxing sensation. Ultrasound is a very deep healing and can be a beneficial adjunctive therapy if clinically indicated.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy Electrical muscle stimulation or"e-stim" is used primarily for pain reduction. There are a couple of theories on how it works. One theory is that it works with the Gate Control Theory of pain, essentially with more sensations flooding the brain through e-stim, the pain sensations are blocked. E-stim also increases endorphins and enkephalin's the body's natural pain killers?this would in theory also cause reduction in pain. E-stim can also be used for muscle re-education. Most experience a tingling like sensation or a muscle contraction.

What Our Patients Say
I have been going here for at least 15 Years I believe. When Dr Anderson said he was retiring. I freaked out because I have seen him at least monthly and at times weekly. He told me he had been trying for three years to get a doctor to take his practice over and had no luck finding one that wanted to come to our small town. He also told me that the nearest chiropractor who uses the activator device was over an hour away. I freaked even more because I personally can not do the manual manipulation for treatment. When I heard through the grape vine that this wonderful new Doctor took over his practice. I had to schedule an appointment to meet her. When I first walked in I noticed right off she had made some changes and I must say they were much needed. I first met her husband Casey at the front desk. Then I met Dr Schmidt for my appointment. Let me tell you. I am soooo happy she took over the practice. She is compassionate, genuine and takes the time to listen to you about life. I have been to her for treatment for the past two months and feel like I have gotten to know Casey and her very well. They are good people and I highly recommend this chiropractic office if your in the need give them a call. They will take great care of you...
This has been the best experience i have ever had in the medical field! Even the "best doctor's" could not and have not deliver the way Dr. Schmidt has. Very helpful and informative. Consitanlty checks in with me when things to see how progress is going. I will not going any where else. I go out of my way just to seek there professional help! Kasey at the front desk is very thorough and professional at all times. I encourage any one and to everyone for them to be your first option.
Dr. Schmidt is an excellent healthcare provider! Her approach is thoughtful, curious, and takes my own experience of my body into account. Her adjustments are gentle, and never overwhelming. I'd recommend her to anyone looking to receive chiropractic care.
