Dr. Chelsea Lorimer’s goal is to optimize every family member’s health naturally, through chiropractic care. In order to do this she uses a variety of adjustment styles including diversified, Activator and Thompson techniques. As each patient is unique and requires their own care plan, these different treatment options allow her to adjust her patients in a way that works best for them.
The Thompson and Activator technique systems are based on detailed neurological and biomechanical evaluations that focus on creating a strong base of support through the foundation of the spine (pelvis), moving up the bones of the spine and to the extremities to ensure optimal function throughout. Using these techniques Dr. Chelsea provides effective and efficient treatments to help restore spinal balance.
When you first meet Dr. Chelsea, she will take you through a complete health history, a focused physical exam and assess any recent x-rays. She believes education is an essential aspect to care as knowledge gives patients control over their path back to health. Using a combination of treatment, education and open communication her goal is to help you operate at optimal health.
Dr. Chelsea enjoys treating patients of all ages from newborns to the elderly, with a special interest in pregnant and pediatric patients. She is a member of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) and her passion for helping children continues to drive her practice. She is consistently taking continuing education courses to ensure she has the most up to date knowledge to best serve her patients.
Coccydynia or tailbone pain occurs when the bone at the very bottom of your spinal column, the coccyx, gets injured. This bone is responsible for supporting your weight while sitting, and is the attachment for many tendons, ligaments and muscles in your pelvis. Tailbone pain is common and can severely limit your quality of life.
Dr. Chelsea has training and experience treating patients with coccydynia using different conservative treatment options including both internal and external adjustment options.
