Chiropractic Care at Moyer Total Wellness
Not all chiropractic care is the same.
Dr. Moyer is focused on one thing: Reaching your goals in as few visits as possible.
He can do this because he is able to quickly diagnose the problem and recommend the right treatment, or perhaps better stated, a complete treatment. At Moyer Total Wellness, our Denver Chiropractor:
- Adjusts your spine
- Treats your muscles*
- Adjusts your extremities (shoulders, hips, ankles, etc)
- Recommends very specific stretches and strengthening exercises
- Utilizes various forms of physiotherapy (ultrasound, heat, ice, taping)
*Treating the muscles is really what sets us apart from most other Denver Chiropractors. Dr. Moyer use various muscle release techniques (that may be a bit uncomfortable during the treatment) that provide long lasting relief from pain, stiffness, tightness, and even weakness.
Adjusting the spine alone can provide quick pain relief, but tight muscles can pull things back out of alignment quickly. This can result in the need to visit your Denver chiropractor weekly, or even multiple times in a week. However, when your chiropractor examines and treats the muscles associated with the problem, pain relief lasts longer. When your chiropractor works directly with your massage therapist, pain relief lasts even longer. When your chiropractor prescribes the right exercises (and you do them!) pain becomes a thing of the past.
The Moyer Total Wellness Process creates a Synergy for your treatment.
Your personalized wellness team consists of 3 people: Your Chiropractor, Your Massage Therapist, and most importantly –You.
When your chiropractor adjusts misaligned joints, treats problematic muscles, recommends the right exercises, communicates with your massage therapist, and you do your homework, pain goes away fast, stays away for long periods of time, and you are able to achieve a higher quality of life.
Our initial visit with a new client is 45-60 minutes.

Pair Your Chiropractic Treatment with a Therapeutic Massage with the Total Body Tune-Up
There are three types of care offered at Moyer Total Wellness: acute care, corrective care, and wellness care.
- Acute care is used to reduce painful joint conditions, much like a person would use an aspirin. The first goal of chiropractic care is to reduce pain and control inflammation so long-term corrections can be made.
- Corrective chiropractic care is combined with massage therapy and home exercises to stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak muscles. Because Doctors of Chiropractic aim to restore proper joint structure (posture) and function, chiropractic is the best choice for corrective care.
- Wellness care is any type of care that used to prevent disease. Much like going to a dentist to prevent tooth decay, getting regular spinal checkups is the best way to prevent joint dysfunction. It is recommended that individuals not in pain see their chiropractor once per month. (Research shows that individuals who see their chiropractor every 2.8 – 4.1 weeks are least likely suffer from early onset of arthritis and other joint related disorders.)
Dr. Moyer is a alternative medicine “Expert” for 9 News. Recently, he was featured on 9news.com lending experitise on how to find a chiropractor.
Nearly every professional sports team has a staff chiropractor, including every NFL team. Chiropractic is endorsed by many of the leading athletes and record holders in their sports, respectively. Joe Montana was one of the first to promote the benefits. Emmitt Smith has been quoted as saying he could not have become the NFL’s leading rusher without chiropractic. Tiger Woods has been accompanied by his chiropractor at many PGA tournaments (and has even been treated during play). See the video above from Jerry Rice.
What is chiropractic therapy used for?
Back pain ranks among the most common problems that bring people to chiropractors. In fact, one out of every three people who suffer from low back pain seeks chiropractic care, making it the most utilized healthcare practice outside of conventional medicine.
Chiropractic spinal manipulation has now had about three decades of very active research, and hundreds of studies have been published in peer-reviewed medical journals examining its clinical usefulness. Spinal manipulation has been found to be effective in the treatment of low back pain (particularly chronic pain), neck pain, muscle tension headaches, and several other conditions. Performed properly, it can relieve musculoskeletal discomfort with little to no side effects, improve the blood circulation, and relieve stress on the nervous system. Chiropractic care should be a part of all phases of treatment for back pain.
What should one expect on a visit to a chiropractor?
Just like any visit to a health care provider, your first visit to our chiropractor will begin with a health history review and physical exam to determine the cause of your health problems. After the physical exam, our team will discuss different treatment options for you, possibly including chiropractic manipulation, massage therapy, or health advising incorporating lifestyle changes to help clients eat better, move more, lose weight, and avoid toxins.
Our chiropractors uses many forms of chiropractic manipulation; all of them focused on correcting structural misalignments in the body to alleviate discomfort and restore balance to the body. The massage therapists also use various massage techniques such as deep tissue massage or trigger point therapy.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has taken a leading role in examining chiropractic and other “alternative medicines” through its National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine. Since 1992, this center has continued to fund research showing the efficacy of chiropractic care for a variety of health related disorders.
Chiropractic is the most widely used form of manual medicine in the world and the most popular alternative primary care in the United States. (The word “chiropractic” comes from Greek roots meaning “done by hand.”) Although it was formally introduced in 1895, chiropractic, along with osteopathy, follows the tradition of hands-on manipulation that dates back to ancient systems of treatment in China, India, and Egypt. Originally, chiropractic therapy focused entirely on the spine and on the notion that minor slippages (called subluxations) of vertebrae would put pressure on spinal nerves and lead to a variety of health problems. This theory has recently been proven and when it comes to headache, neck, and back pain chiropractic care is considered evidence-based medicine. Today’s chiropractors still concentrate on spinal manipulation as a means of relieving pain, but usually incorporate preventive health protocols such as lifestyle consultations to help improve in areas such as nutrition, fitness, stress management, or avoiding toxins.
