Who We Help
We like to think of our practice as family-based. The relationships built with patients are very important, and the staff accepts all patients as part of the office family. We enjoy treating families from pregnancy through childhood to maturity.
The five most dangerous words are, "Maybe It Will Go Away." Pain is usually an indication that something is wrong with the body. It is important to keep our bodies as healthy as possible. That is why we exercise, de-stress, and eat properly. Chiropractic care should also be a part of your wellness plan. Most individuals seek out chiropractic care due to the pain that they experience.
Once they see and feel the results that chiropractic can provide, they realize that neglecting their body is not worth it. Most of our patients end up referring their family and friends to Miley Chiropractic so they too can experience what it is like to feel great.
We pride ourselves on being a referral-based practice; it indicates that our patients trust our care for them and their family members.
We do our best to treat each patient like family from the moment they step through our door. Building a healthy relationship with patients is part of the healing process. It is important to keep communication lines open and honest; this allows us to provide good healthcare. The recommendations and treatments provided to patients are the recommendations and treatments we would use for our family members.
If you or any of your family members suffer from any of the following problems, it may be time to contact our office to see what chiropractic can do for you.
Most athletes are generally concerned with what they can do to improve performance, avoid injuries, and facilitate previous injuries' healing process. A doctor of chiropractic is trained to evaluate and treat many injuries that can occur due to sports. An adjustment and soft tissue manipulation to areas of the spine, joints, and tissue that have been overused, displaced, or fail to function normally can help restore the proper position and motion to allow for the body to heal properly.
Injuries such as sprains, strains, tendonitis, bursitis, joint pain of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot can be treated effectively with chiropractic care and active release technique.
What can chiropractic do for your child? Why do millions of parents bring their children to doctors of chiropractic every year? Is it only for highly dramatic health conditions? Is it only for when my child is hurting? Not at all!
A Chiropractor's purpose is to remove interferences to the natural healing power running through the body. When that power is unleashed, the healing that results is profound.
Children are susceptible to trauma through everyday life experiences. The birthing process can be a rather traumatic incident in itself.
If a mother must tolerate pain and discomfort during delivery, imagine how much pain and discomfort that newborn baby must endure coming into this world.
Today we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health concerns we are all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fever, tonsillitis, allergies, infections, pains, falls, stomach-ache and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up.
Children are very active, as they should be; however, rough play, sitting with poor posture, and carrying heavy backpacks can strain their body.
A simple evaluation of an infant or child followed by a very specific, gentle treatment may help alleviate problems that children often suffer. Treatment is very simple and quick; many children enjoy being treated. Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child's size, weight, and unique spinal problem.
It is very exciting to treat children since children tend to respond very quickly to chiropractic care. Many parents and daycare providers report that children who receive chiropractic care seem healthier than other kids their age.
Our children have responded very well to chiropractic care. When a child complains of pain consistently, you know it must be real. What is amazing is the number of children who tell their parents that they need to see Dr. Kim because they are hurt or sick. Chiropractic care is safe for children, and it begins in pregnancy and continues from infancy to adulthood.

Chiropractic care for pregnant women is important for prenatal and postpartum wellness. Treating women during pregnancy is one of the most rewarding parts of practice because a healthier pregnancy means an easier labor and delivery and a better transition for the baby into this life. During pregnancy, a woman's body forgoes many changes, ranging from emotional to structural changes.
The hormones released during pregnancy allow the muscles and ligaments to relax; therefore, the body can change and hold the baby. However, this also means that the body is prone to become more easily displaced. Chiropractic care is safe throughout pregnancy. Treatment can result in easier pregnancy, decreased labor time, and assist new mothers back to prepartum health.
Postural changes will change the center of gravity throughout pregnancy. The weight of the baby can place pressure on the spine, pelvis, nerves, and arteries as the woman's body changes, pelvic/sacral misalignments can cause tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments.
These muscles and ligaments can affect the uterus' position, preventing the baby from comfortably assuming the best position for birth. Chiropractic care can help decrease or eliminate pain that can accompany pregnancy. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The adjustment goal is to reduce the effects of sacral/pelvic subluxation and/or SI joint dysfunction.
In so doing, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved. Sacral misalignment may contribute to these primary causes of dystocia (difficult labor) via uterine nerve interference, pelvic misalignment, and the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments.
The resulting tense muscles and ligaments and their aberrant effect on the uterus may prevent the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible birth position. Dystocia is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation.
The correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia. The Webster Technique can help remove the restriction and allow biomechanical balance in the pelvic structure, muscles, and ligaments. This can allow the baby to drop into the pelvic basin more easily for birth.
Removing sacral/pelvic subluxation and/or SI dysfunction will help with the pelvic position and allow for an easier and less uncomfortable labor.
It is recommended to use this technique throughout the pregnancy to detect imbalances and optimize pelvic biomechanics in preparation for a safer and easier birth.

Don't forget how intense the birthing process can be for your newborn. Chiropractic care is safe for your infant as well. Please read more on this on our Children page.
