Dr. Matthew Dunn would like to change the way you think about health care.

Dr. Dunn is a chiropractor who specializes in finding spinal misalignments, which are often the cause of pain, numbness or tingling, headaches, fatigue, stress, or sciatica. He corrects them using gentle, low-force adjusting techniques so that tension is relieved from the nerves and the body can start to heal itself properly. (There’s no popping or twisting involved.) This gets to the root of the problem, instead of covering up the symptoms with dangerous and potentially addictive drugs.

However, what sets Dr. Dunn apart is that he is a “health consultant” to his patients, taking the time to listen to everything that’s going on with them and working closely with their other healthcare professionals to get all the information about the problem.

“My goal is not only to deal with the symptoms that they came in with—back pain, headaches, and so forth— but also work on improving their quality of life,” says Dr. Dunn. “When I ask each patient, ‘Other than dealing with the symptom that you came in with, what are your health goals?’ they often don’t know how to respond, because they’ve never thought about their health in that way.”

Usually, Dr. Dunn finds that his patients want to have more energy, sleep better, or be more physically fit.

“I work together with my patients to create a care plan to address their symptoms and start improving their health to be better than it was before,” explains Dr. Dunn. “Our plan will generally include nutrition, exercise, ergonomics and lifestyle modification (such as quitting smoking, sleeping well, improving work habits) in addition to chiropractic care to remove tension from the nerve system.”

For Dr. Dunn’s patients, health care is not about dealing with problems as they arise. Instead, it’s about setting wellness goals and working together to reach them.

Taking Another Look at Modern Chiropractics

When you visit Dr. Dunn’s office, don’t expect to hear snap, crackle or pop—unless you’re telling him about your breakfast. He practices a technique called Chiropractic Biophysics, the most researched chiropractic technique in the world. “It’s more modern and much more effective method of adjusting than the old style of chiropractic adjusting,” says Dr. Dunn. It includes gentle instrument adjusting, which is very low force, with no “popping” and “twisting” involved.

The Chiropractic Biophysics technique is based around restoring the curves in the spine. The spine has three separate curves (neck, mid-back, low back) which allow the spine to act as a “shock absorber” as you walk and move all day. If there are misalignments in the spine and those curves are lost, it puts tension on the nerve system.

Dr. Dunn will analyze the curves in your spine, and as necessary, put together a care plan in order to restore the curves back to normal.
