Generations of Care
Dr. Gatz has been practicing chiropractic since 1970. He grew up watching his father and grandmother successfully treat back, neck and joint pain. Helping those in pain and offering this specialized type of care appealed to Dr. Gatz and he eventually joined the family practice. He then moved to his present location in 1996. Through the decades, he has treated a wide range of disorders with spinal manipulation and acupuncture.
Treatment targeted to your specific needs
The first thing that will happen when you visit Newton Chiropractic's family friendly office will be a consultation with the doctor. Your perspective on how your body feels and reacts will be taken into account by Dr. Gatz while planning an approach to treatment. Remember, the conditions you have are usually just symptoms of an underlying cause and if you eliminate the cause you eliminate the symptoms.
We use basic chiropractic adjustments and our adjunctive care includes trigger point therapy, electrical stimulation therapy, acupuncture and educating the patient through exercise and advice toward self improvement. Activator is available upon request.
Occasionally a condition will present itself that Dr. Gatz feels needs to be treated by other specialities. Over the course of more than four decades in the medical field,Dr. Gatz has aquired a network of physicians to whom he can refer these patients.
Approaches as diverse as the customers we see
Care for all ages is available. In addition to gentle adjustments, Dr. Gatz is aware that relaxation of the soft tissue is important and compliments his adjustments with trigger point muscle massage to increase the effectiveness of his treatments.
