Evaluation

After taking your health history into account, your chiropractor will perform a physical examination. Your chiropractor may feel your spine, joints, and examine your range of motion.

Assessment

A chiropractic exam will be thorough and may include X-rays, orthopedic tests, and neurological tests.

Spinal Exam

To determine what parts of your spine would require chiropractic treatment, your chiropractor will likely use a palpation technique to find what areas of your spine's mobility are restricted.

X-Rays

Many healthcare providers employ the use of x-rays for diagnostic purposes, including chiropractors. They are useful in helping identify the source of a problem, its potential severity, and potentially guiding the course of treatment.

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 the internet; we have a big sign in front of our office.  All of our 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 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.

Chiropractor Livermore CA Gerardo Contreras About Us

Why I Became A Chiropractor

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 condition 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, and 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 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 CA chiropractor since 2001. Contreras Chiropractic opened in 2006 and we have helped numerous people. Each day, I am grateful that I am a chiropractor.

Common Chiropractic Misconceptions

A misconception people may have about chiropractic is that once you begin treatment you must continue for the rest of your life. In our Livermore CA chiropractic office, we have a specific plan for each person’s condition. We will get you from point A to point B in the quickest amount of time possible. Another misconception is that you need to have health insurance to see a chiropractor.
