Dr. Donaldson has often said "Chiropractic is like a screwdriver". What he means by this is that you should use chiropractic care like you do a screwdriver. While chiropractic is a powerful tool in helping people resolve their health issues, it is not "the" answer. True health is also dependent upon good nutrition, exercise, and spiritual reflection. Using chiropractic alone to get healthy is like trying to build a house using only a screwdriver. Many different tools are necessary.
The number one complaint that patients have about chiropractic is that they started treatment and their chiropractor wanted them to come back again and again with no end. Dr. Donaldson has maintained that chiropractic is not a religion. You will get better or you won't. If Dr. Donaldson can't help you then he will refer you to someone that hopefully can. The focus should be placed on resolving your health issues and adopting a healthy lifestyle that will keep you healthy, not how many times can you get adjusted.
Dr. Donaldson measures success by the number of patients that no longer need to see him. He may not be able to solve all of your problems immediately, but we don’t waste your time.
