Services & Techniques

At Chiropractic First, Dr. Nick Krause and Tony Parks 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 Rochester 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. Our Doctors of Chiropractic have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.


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.

DTS Therapy is an Alternative to Surgery.

You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to herniated, damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine, DTS Therapy may be for you.

This gentle, non-surgical therapy can provide lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for neck pain relief, bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain.


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 of our patients is a whole person, and to 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? One of our doctors can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.


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 area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""Quick appointments, excellent front desk service, and Dr. Parks was outstanding! He explained everything and it was a nice surprise to hear he doesn't do x-rays , additional testing unless necessary. Most other places automatically do those things and just run up your bill- whether they are needed or not! Not here.. you get only what you actually need... Which for me was an excellent chiropractic experience.""
  • "" I was struggling with severe low back pain that was radiating down my leg. I was waking up in pain and advised by my provider to get injections to help with the pain. I came to Dr. Nick and now I’m walking around with days that are virtually pain free! I didn’t have to get Injections! If you are in pain, don’t wait. Make an appointment with Dr. Nick! He’s the best!!! Thank you Dr. Nick for helping me feel better!!""

  • ""The Doctors have always taken great care of me and my family. I had a major accident years ago and Dr Krause and Parks have been there all along while I have rebuilt my health. Without Chiropractic First I don’t know how I would have been able to get through it.""

  • ""Dr. Chris Hartley was able to help adjust me and offer other assistance as to what other treatment is necessary for me. Taking time to talk to me about what was hurting and understanding my needs. This is why I continue to see Dr. Chris and refer friends, family to your office. THANK YOU""
    Marty H.
  • ""My back pain was why I started with chiropractic care. I had shots and pills before and didn't want them anymore. I couldn't ride in the car even a little ways let alone on a trip to see my grandkids. I gave up gardening because I couldn't bend.

    The whole office is so friendly you make friends instantly. My overall health has changed because not only is my back great, I can ride 3 hours without stopping. I'm so happy because I don't hurt. I think my whole attitude is better. Thank you!""
