"Back in Shape & Pain Free" Document
Stretching and an active lifestyle are often recommended to help reduce back pain and speed the recovery process following an injury. Improving flexibility through stretching is also an excellent way to avoid future injuries. See this document for stretches and exercises specific to a healthy spine.

"Heat vs. Ice" Document
If you or your child sustains a soft tissue injury (muscle, ligament, tendon, fascia, nerve) commonly known as a sprain or a strain, or a bone injury, it may be hard to determine which is the best course of treatment. Check out these heat and ice guidelines to determine which will most help your recovery.

"Tips for a Healthy Spine" Document
A healthy spine is an essential part of a healthy, pain-free lifestyle. People who suffer from back pain, particularly if it is long-term, are generally less healthy than those who do not. In fact, back pain costs are staggering not only financially, but also in terms of lost time from work and because of psychosocial problems that arise during the healing process associated with long-term back pain. See these tips to see how you can improve your spine health.

"PRICE" Document
The "PRICE" principle is widely used in treatment and triage of many types of injuries. See the steps of injury care using this principle.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I have been seeing Dr. Parker for several years. Four years ago I moved to Baltimore for college. Since then I've been to another chiropractor and was unsatisfied. Now, every time I come home I see Dr. Parker. He is able to do more healing in 2 visits than the other could do with 15! I would strongly recommend Dr. Parker."

    Sincerely,"
    - Ben P. - College Graduate
  • ""For decades I have endured back, neck and hip pain. Over these many years I have been to see numerous chiropractors, and other specialists, in search of pain relief and increased mobility. Dr. Parker has been extremely helpful in this pursuit. He provides gentle manipulation and works with me to explore and find the best outcomes. Dr. Parker has been my chiropractor for several years now. He truly understands my individual issues, and continues to have my complete trust and confidence. "

    Sincerely,"
    - TLH
  • ""Dr. Parker was introduced to me by my friend when I came with her to an appointment. In the waiting room he noticed my hand was twitching. He examined me and told me about my condition. He managed my pain and got me better. I was back to my activities and feeling better than before I met him. Thanks Dr. Parker! I have told many friends about him and they have been happy as well."

    Sincerely,"
    - Helen B - Retired
