By JohnAll of the doctors and staff at Rock Creek Spine are amazing! I was referred to them by my former chiropractor in Sunnyvale, CA because they were known for their effective treatments of scoliosis. I did traction and at-home exercises along with adjustments for several months. Now I have been a patient at Rock Creek Spine for more than 5 years. I just check in for quick adjustments every couple of weeks, and I feel fantastic! I have an active lifestyle (with 2 young boys to run after) and consider chiropractic care an important part of my self-care. I highly recommend Rock Creek Spine to anyone and everyone who cares about their health!Read More

X-rays are necessary in some cases. We have in-house x-ray facilities if x-rays are needed.
During your first visit, you will have to provide us with some information before meeting with the doctor. Then you will meet with one of our doctors and go into the examination room. The doctor will make some inquiries regarding your health, symptoms and other issues. Afterwards, the doctor will perform some orthopedic, neurological and range of motion tests to help assess the root of the problem. In some cases, x-rays are taken after the examination in order to properly diagnose a condition.
