Welcome to Contreras Chiropractic
I try to make it easy to find your way to my office. We are located on East Avenue here in Livermore. You can find us on internet; we have a big sign in front of our office. All of current and past patients love to refer their friends and family members to us.
When you call our office, we will find a time that works best for you. We will answer all your questions first and then proceed to do an examination. During this examination, we will test the function of the nerve, muscle and the joint. These tests don’t hurt; they help to determine if we are able to help you. That is when we will demonstrate what we will do to help you. This process helps to put your fears to ease. We will then schedule you to come back for a follow up to discuss a chiropractic treatment plan to help you.
People often ask me why I became a chiropractor. Well, I began my chiropractic journey as a patient. I was involved in a very bad auto accident as a young adult. This accident caused me multiple trips to the doctor’s office. I was suffering from neck pain, left arm numbness, headaches and left side muscle weakness. I kept going back to the medical doctor’s office because I was not getting healthy. As each day passed, my conditioned became worse. This lasted for almost an entire year. As the pain continued,
I became depressed and my doctor wanted to prescribe anti-depressants. I was only 19 years old and on strong pain meds, muscle relaxers and now the doctors wanted to add more drugs.
That is when a friend of mine referred me to a chiropractor. I was very hesitant to see a chiropractor because I was in so much pain, I didn’t want someone to crack my bones. However, I went anyway. I just figured I would try something different, as the pain meds were not helping. The chiropractor did his exam and explained to me that I was suffering from multiple pinched nerves in my back. All the pinched nerves were causing my pain and that he could help. At first there was no change. Then after one of my office visits, I started to move my arm and it felt different. My left arm hadn’t been functioning in almost 4 months. As I continued my chiropractic treatment plan, I regained all my strength back and the pain went away. I was not using any of the different drugs the medical doctors prescribed me. I was no longer depressed. This doctor gave me my life back.
At that point I knew I wanted to become a chiropractor and help other people. I have been a Livermore chiropractor since 2001. Contreras Chiropractic opened in 2006 and we have helped numerous people. Each day, I am grateful that I am a chiropractor.
I always like to explain to people who are looking for a chiropractor, what makes our office so unique. We strive to make time to get people into our office as soon as possible. We understand that when you are in pain, you want help now. We also will treat you on your first visit, as long as all of our exam findings don’t elicit something abnormal. Our office is open after you get off of work and we also have appointments available on Saturdays. As I explained before, I have personally developed a gentle and very effective chiropractic technique. These are just a few reasons why our Livermore chiropractic office is the choice for you.
