Salem Chiropractic Clinic Services
The chiropractic physicians at Salem Chiropractic Clinic truly care for each patient and take a personal interest in their welfare. They take the time to thoroughly manage each case in order to ensure that every patient enjoys a comprehensive, caring approach to their concerns. Chiropractic Doctors Dutton and Herren take the time to learn about each patient’s needs and provide examinations directed at better understanding the mechanisms at work within each individual. When appropriate, they are expert in providing a number of different treatment methods, including the following:
- State-of-the-art instrument adjusting / gentle techniques
- Traditional manual chiropractic manipulation
- Myofascial trigger point therapy
- Moist heat / cryotherapy
- Interferential current / muscle stimulation
- Ultrasound therapy
- Therapeutic stretching
- Ergonomics counseling
- Functional rehabilitation / strengthening exercises
- Proprioceptive rehabilitation
Treatment begins by employing the least invasive procedures necessary. Most of the time, very gentle techniques are sufficient to yield the desired results. Occasionally, more aggressive conditions require the provision of additional therapies. These may be administered in-office, or a referral may be made to a specialist. Each case is evaluated individually and approached in a step-wise fashion, beginning with the most conservative measures advisable.
The Doctors of Chiropractic at Salem Chiropractic Clinic emphasize a comprehensive approach, whether this means obtaining x-rays, ordering MRI’s, referring to a specialist, helping one find legal counsel, or any number of additional services, they are well-qualified to serve as a “portal of entry” to patients who are hurting, or seeking treatment to stay healthy.

One can take comfort in referring friends and family to Salem Chiropractic Clinic because if we cannot provide the most appropriate treatment for any given situation, we will find someone who can, and make sure that the referral is initiated promptly. We take pride in a comprehensive approach.
At Salem Chiropractic Clinic, we have found that by referring when appropriate, treating when indicated, and helping people with every aspect of their concerns, many have come to trust in us. Our front office staff has over 29 years of experience and is willing to help in filling out paperwork, calling insurance companies, and filing claims. They are able to quickly and efficiently assist patients with the paperwork associated with insurance claims, automobile crash injuries, and worker compensation claims. Many have found our front office staff immediately helpful in answering insurance-related questions. Some people are still unaware that they can visit a chiropractic physician directly after a car crash without needing a referral from their primary care physician. We are well-suited to manage cases from the moment of injury through the full resolution of symptoms and return to a pre-injury status.
