CK Family Chiropractic

I’m not sure how I made it into Year 30 of life without ever having visited a chiropractic office, but I finally took the leap recently. I didn’t visit alone; my husband and three kids (ages 6, 5, and 3) joined me and we all five received an examination.

Dr. Claire at CK Family Chiropractic was kind and professional right off the bat.

She made us feel comfortable, which is no easy task when you’re filling out introductory paperwork for 5 people while 3 young children argue over who’s going to be examined first!

After we got the paperwork squared away, all five of us went back to the exam room together. Dr. Claire checked height, weight, and looked for any problem areas we might be experiencing. As we were talking, she mentioned she had worked at a daycare for many of her college years, and that made perfect sense to me after seeing how patient and unphased she was with the kids.

In fact, infants and children are one of her specialties!

CK Chiropractic

My kids haven’t had any pain areas or recent health issues, so we decided not to have them adjusted after the initial exam. But since I’ve had leg/foot pain and my husband has recently dealt with some tenderness in his shoulder, both of us decided to get adjusted.

Dr. Claire was efficient and capable as she worked her way through the adjustment.

There’s really nothing like the feeling you get when your back cracks just right! As my husband and I took turns getting adjusted, our kids played with the toy doctor kit in her exam room. We were the only patients in the office, and it was nice to not have to worry about disturbing other people with noise/kids running around.

If you’re looking for a family friendly chiropractic office, Dr. Claire definitely checks that box. We rarely schedule a “family appointment” for anything since we as parents are outnumbered and it can be stressful keeping three young kids in check. In this case, it was definitely the right choice. She had all of us examined and adjusted in just over one hour.

Thank you, Dr. Claire, for making my first chiropractic experience an overwhelmingly positive one! We will be back!
