Q & A Chiropractor Chad Updike

Describe an ideal day in the clinic.

An ideal day in the office would include seeing a wide variety of patients; from newborns to patients over 100 years young! Changing as many lives as possible and having a great time doing it!

What do you like most about your specialty?

The Gonstead Chiropractor System is the gold standard in chiropractic care. Not only is it the most specific and effective form of chiropractic, it is also very gentle on the patient.

What is the most rewarding outcome of your patients?

I am amazed everyday by the healing power of the human body when there is no nerve interference, proper nutrition and exercise. I am humbled often by the results patients obtain and how grateful they are when they receive proper chiropractic care. My patients truly are members of my family and I am thankful everyday for the ability to guide them to healthier lifestyles.

How do you measure success in your patients?

In our practice success is not measured by how many patients we see, financial gains, or even pain relief. Success is when a patient can return to doing things they enjoy doing after weeks, months or even years of being unable to enjoy their life. When a patient is able to go to their grandchildren’s sporting events and sit without being in constant pain. When a patient starts a nutrition program, loses weight and has enough energy to start golfing again. When a patient walks into the adjusting room and starts crying  because they slept through the night for the first time in 4 years. Every one of these situations has happened in our office and this is how we measure success!
