Two Types of Chiropractors
Not all chiropractors are alike. Although they go by the same name, Chiropractors today differ greatly in technique and philosophy. There are basically two types of Chiropractors: musculoskeletal chiropractors who work on symptom relief; and the traditional wellness chiropractors , who works on subluxation and structural correction. This straightforward comparison of the two will help you make an informed decision regarding your own chiropractic care and overall plan for health and wellness.
1. Musculoskeltetal Chiropractor
Length of treatment is dictated by the patient’s symptoms, or insurance coverage. Monitoring patient’s progress by symptoms and insurance coverage, usually means shorter overall treatment time, but still leaves the patient far short of correcting the cause of the symptoms. The patient may feel better temporarily, but since the spine remains structurally misaligned, it degenerates silently and results in damage and dysfunction to discs, joints and nerves.
When symptoms improve, the patient assumes their spinal alignment is fixed. In most cases the spinal joints have merely been decompressed and pain is temporarily relieved.
2. The Traditional/Wellness Chiropractor
Dr. Jumper is this type of Chiropractor where we actually correct the spinal alignment back to its normal model and show you the results with pre and post digital x-rays. In most cases, If we were to stop care when your symptoms are gone and took another x-ray you would see that your spine is not fixed.
Length of treatment is determined by the severity of the patient’s structural alignment not just merely symptoms alone.
Symptoms may be gone long before the spine is at its maximum corrected position.
Once the spine is at its maximum corrected position we teach YOU how to maintain it so you don’t have to keep coming back. When spinal alignment is restored to its normal model, not only are symptoms relieved, but long lasting stable correction is achieved for better stability and function. So five, ten years from now you are not suffering with disc, joint and nerve related problems and possibly permanent damage.
When choosing a chiropractor, your decision should be based on your healthcare philosophy and goals.
If your health philosophy is to only treat symptoms and conditions when they arise and not worry about the cause, choose the musculoskeletal symptom-relief chiropractor.
On the other hand, if your health philosophy is wellness, maintaining optimum health potential to prevent dysfunction and disease, choose the wellness chiropractor for maximum correction and maintenance of your spine and health. Patient Review
The choice is yours.
Patient Review" I have been to three other chiropractors in my life and Dr. Jumper has been the best."
Excellent!! Have been to three other chiropractors in my life and Dr. Jumper has been the best. Dr. Jason Jumper is very personable and will make you feel comfortable while make your body feel better. He makes your body feel better through not just the standard chiropractic ways but also through new techniques, nutrition and at home simple workouts. Dr. Jumper will show you what’s wrong and give you a timeline on when he will have you fixed. Vicki is wonderful as well. We have a 2 year old son who we have to take in sometimes and she will play with him and treats him very well. Great company and will always use them.

" He is one of the most professional and knowledgeable Chiropractors I have encountered."
I am very skeptical of Chiropractors having seen a lot of bad ones for my back issues. Dr. Jumper is the real deal. He is one of the most professional and knowledgeable Chiropractors I have encountered. He is very compassionate and listens to what your problem is and then he addresses the problem directly. I'm a former Rugby player, and I completely messed up my upper and lower spine from years of trauma to it. Dr. Jumper very methodically put everything back into place, and I feel great - the best I've felt in years. I highly recommend him!!!
