Why We're Different

"Medicine is the study of disease and what causes man to die. Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes man to live." - BJ Palmer

What makes us different?

1. We treat the person, not the condition.

 Chiropractic is for everyone, and we make it a point to personalize the journey to give you the most efficient care.

2. Advanced methods of therapy.

We utilize methods including intersegmental traction and cold laser therapy for muscle and disc injury. It is imperative for speedy healing that both the disc and the muscles are treated simultaneously.

3. Our patients appreciate that we are educators.

We teach our practice members how to take control of their health and their bodies so they will need fewer risky diagnostic tests and procedures throughout their lives.

4.  Dr. Draayer is certified in gentle and low force techniques.

We understand that some patients do not like the cracking sound or more forceful adjustments, so Dr. Draayer is certified in the latest gentle and low force techniques to achieve the same results with no cracking or rough adjustments.

5. Dr. Draayer is able to use different approaches to treat each patient specifically.

There is no one adjustment for every person. If you are not seeing results with your current chiropractor, a more specific approach may be necessary for you.

6. We never let money stand in the way of a patient getting well.

Financial plans are always offered to make treatment available to everyone.

7. Our techniques get you an explanation.

 When medical establishments tell you nothing is wrong, or can’t give you any answer, we take a different approach using techniques such as applied kinesiology and contact reflex analysis to get you an explanation.

8. Dr. Draayer listens and communicates to better understand your problems.

Does your doctor listen to you? Are they easy to talk to? As a former pastor, Dr. Draayer understands the human side of suffering.

9. Dr. Draayer is a credible and trustworthy Chiropractor.

He is a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, considered the Harvard of Chiropractic colleges and is the premier chiropractic school.

10. Not all vitamins are created equal.

 We use only specific whole food, pharmaceutical grade supplements to ensure the fastest and safest results for you.

11. We give you the right answers to your questions.

We provide plans to all of our practice members to give them the best idea of what to expect from care – the common questions of “how long will it take?” and “how much does it cost?” are given our best estimation.

The Functional Analysis System

Dr. Draayer’s system uses a specific method of spinal and joint analysis. His system employs many attributes of other methods of chiropractic, including, but not limited to: Gonstead, Thompson, Activator, Diversified, Sacral Occipital Technique, SEREM, and Contact Reflex Analysis. These varied techniques allow him to analyze not only the bones of the body but also the muscles, tissues, organs, glands, and systems of the body. This in-depth analysis allows Dr. Draayer to check not only function or dysfunction but also measures those levels. Dr. Draayer is able to check these levels by using reflexes of the body to measure stress on corresponding points (organ, tissue, gland, etc). This is not a means of diagnosis, but is a very effective method of analysis of the body’s ability to adapt to its environment and its stresses.
With this analysis, Dr. Draayer is able to make recommendations of chiropractic care, nutritional support, therapies, spinal remodeling, and energy work. Because a person is multi-layered, so are his care recommendations. These innovated techniques have been proven to be very effective both for Dr. Daayer’s patients as well as others who employ these methods worldwide. Each recommendation is personalized to the exact needs of the patient – there is no-one-size-fits-all protocol. This labor intensive approach has led to renewed health and wellness for many.
