The most common complaints that Dr. Stevens treats are neck and back pain, pain in the arms and legs, joint pain, sinus pain, and headaches, but he also can offer assistance in dietary and lifestyle counseling.
Dr. Stevens is well-versed in several styles of adjusting patients. He adjusts people by manual methods in most cases, but also uses drop-table, Cox and Activator techniques when called for by the patient’s condition. He also can use electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, heat or cold treatments, stretching or strengthening programs, or acupuncture as part of each patient’s individualized treatment plan.
