Chiropractor Silver Spring MD

Takoma Chiropractic

Welcome to Takoma Chiropractic located in Silver Spring/Takoma Park region of suburban DC in MD. Our full time Silver Spring MD chiropractor is Dr. Paul S. Tetro. Our office is easily accessible via the Washington Beltway, University Blvd. and the recently opened Metro Takoma/Langley Park bus station only blocks from our office.

Conditions We Help

At Takoma Chiropractic, I enjoy serving the public in my area to treat a variety of health conditions ranging from back pain, neck pain, headaches, and extremity pains in a natural and affordable way. Chiropractic can restore proper joint biomechanics to the spine and extremities to help alleviate pains and promote wellness without the side effects of medications and surgery.

At Takoma Chiropractic we offer chiropractic care which may include spinal manipulations to restore movement and health, physiotherapy, and myofascial dry needling technique. I feel that this may set us apart from other chiropractors as we may offer more options to care at our office. We are experts at helping patients involved with injuries from motor vehicle accidents, work-related injuries, and sports injuries with a total body approach to wellness to help ameloriate pains and symptoms.

What some people may not realize is that chiropractic is accepted by most health insurance as well as automobile insurance and others. It is an affordable, cost-effective way to manage health. We may counsel on diet, nutrition, exercise, and occupational and lifestyle modifications to help the patient remain healthy. We also may make a referral to another healthcare professional if appropriate and when necessary.

We may be reached at Takoma Chiropractic at (301) 445-6900 and we shall return your call in a prompt timeframe.

The History of Chiropractic Care

The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.

D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.

What Kind of Training Does a Chiropractor Have?

Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.

Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.

At Takoma Chiropractic our chiropractic team is ready to meet with you to discuss your needs. We will help to design a program that is right for you. We look forward to meeting you.
