What to Expect

from Chiropractic


 Expect great service and focused attention.

Medical History & Physical Examination: Dr. Tucker will spend some time on your first visit to get to know you and determine if chiropractic care will benefit you. He will conduct a thorough analysis using several criteria to identify the specific pain generators in your spine. This includes visualizing your posture and movement for any indication of problems. On site x-rays may be taken if necessary to help Dr. Tucker develop a plan.

Adjustment: Dr. Tucker is the most knowledgeable and accommodating chiropractor in Southeast Iowa.  He works with you to find out the best adjustment method. The Gonstead, Thompson and Diversified techniques are used for individuals who prefer the hands on approach. The Pro-Adjuster, Activator and Arthrostim are offered to those who would like to be adjusted in a more relaxed manner.  Feel free to discuss your preferences with him.

PEMF Therapy 

PEMF therapy uses bursts of low-level electromagnetic radiation to heal damaged tissues and bone, to relieve injury-related pain, and even to stimulate organs. 

  • It pulses at safe, low frequencies that pass through the skin to penetrate deep into the cellular level to activate the cell’s energy and stimulate natural repair.

  • PEMF is a non-invasive way to address injuries, chronic pain, even depression.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body and is most commonly used to treat pain.

  • The needles are very small. In fact, the size of one needle can fit four acupuncture needles. Acupressure can also be used in place of needles if someone is too afraid.

  • Dr. Tucker has been using acupuncture points since 2001 as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue.

  • This stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers and stress management hormones. One treatment takes only 15-20 minutes.

Kinesiology Taping

This is a reliable taping technique that is designed to help the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

  • It provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of chiropractic adjustment. Kinesio Taping can also be used to reduce swelling and increase circulation to the affected area.

  • The tape lasts for four to five days after you leave our office.

  • Every day life can be physical and demanding. Kinesio Tape is not just for athletes.
