Main Content

At Desmarais Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our office.

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Drs. Ron and Charisse Desmarais have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.


Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.


Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.


Nutritional Counseling

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Desmarais can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.


Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy is a treatment whereby a cold laser is utilized to treat chronic and acute pain. Cold laser therapy is used for persons suffering from back and neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, joint pain associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, bursitis, neuropathy, Achilles tendon pain, migraine headaches, sprains and strains, carpal tunnel and other associated pains. Cold laser therapy also treats conditions such as TMJ, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and other inflammatory and scarring conditions.
Cold laser therapy increases serotonin levels which allow the body to heal itself. Cold laser therapy is non-thermal and noninvasive. A combination of cold laser and electric stimulation, cold laser therapy is one of the most effective healing therapies in the medical community today. Completed in ten to twelve sessions, cold laser therapy is not only significant in reducing treatment times, it is cost effective as well.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a Handheld, noninvasive, light-emitting medical device which is used over different areas of the body. It provides an unmatched advantage in the treatment of conditions such as:
* Athletic Injuries 
* Lower Back Pain
* Chronic Neck Pain
* Knee and Foot Pain 
* Shoulder Injury 
* Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 
* Arthritis, Muscle Spasm 
* Relief of Muscle and Joint Pain 
* Skin infections, including cold sores, warts, verruca 
* Relief of Stiffness, the Promotion of Muscle Relaxation, and Cell Restoration 
* Wound Management, Including Skin Ulcers, Pressure Sores and Burns

Spinal & Postural Screenings

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Often referred to as "muscle stim," the therapy involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to the injured, painful tissues to reduce pain and speed healing. Often described by patients as a pleasant, "tingling" sensation, or "electrical massage," these impulses stimulate the body to release natural pain relievers, called endorphins. These endorphins reduce pain and inflammation, thereby promoting faster healing of the injured tissues. This therapy is often used to treat acute or chronic pain, as well as strains or sprains of the muscles, joints, and soft tissues of the spine and extremities.

X-Ray / MRI / CAT SCAN


If you haven't had a recent set of spinal x-rays, Dr. Desmarais will determine if you need them following your consultaion and examination. The office is equipped with an x-ray machine and processor. X-rays will usually be taken on your first or second visit. If you do have recent x-rays or MRI images, we can request them from the office that holds them. Depending on the findings, Dr. Desmarais may call for an MRI or other imaging study of the spine.
