Back to Health Family Chiropractic recently relocated from the "theatre district" of downtown to a spacious 4800 sq ft facility behind the Franklin County Sherriff's department next to the Hairloft at 387 Lake Road Suite 3 in ST. Albans, VT. The office first started with one building at 128 North Main but expanded later to include the property of 120 North Main Street. We outgrew that space and relocated to our current space. We are handicapped accessible and boost of plenty of parking.
Our waiting room is large and comfortable. We have a leather couch, ottoman and chair. We also have seats with arms and without to accomodate all sizes and tastes. We also have a 48 inch sq HDTV for educational talks. The doctors at Back to Health Family Chiropractic, P.C. and the staff do their very best to keep the waiting room empty by staying on time :) We find that many of our patients stay after their treatment because they like to visit with other patients. Many patients remark, "it feels like home here." Other patients often see relatives in the office and have in improptu family reunion with cousins, aunts and uncles alike visiting with one another!
You may notice that our front desk area is open. This gives the front desk personnel the opportunity to talk with our patients while they wait for care. (We don't "hide" behind a glass window- we are here for you the patient.) Our receptionist is Mr./Mrs. Bones (depending on what season and clothes we have available) will greet you with a big hello. You may also see our other receptionist - she has a great smile also . When you call our office, we do our best to answer the phone on the 1st or 2nd ring. We have a full-time receptionist who handles calls with a personal touch. Like you, we hate voice mail! As a patient, you can often hear Dr. Molly educating as well as telling a few tales to make their patients laugh.
We have four adjusting rooms. For your convenience three rooms have tables that will actually lower you down and raise you if you are unable or find it difficult to do this yourself. The last room has a table you can climb on and a horse table for the children. (This table allows you to climb on and off for our able bodied patients or those who suffer from vertigo(aka dizziness). Sorry the horse table is for children 5 and under.
As you head down the hall, you will see our hall monitor Mr/Mrs. Bones. He/She dresses up for the season. It is not uncommon to see him/her in scarf and hat in the winter(or fleece pajamas) and shorts with a t-shirt in the summer. Say 'hi' as you pass him/her in the hall on the way to the Relaxation Station.y the horse table is for children 5 and under.
Besides getting adjusted by Dr. Molly, the second favorite place in the office is our Relaxation Station. One of our staff recently used her great decorating instincts and repainted the room. We also added art work to give the room a great Feng-Shui feeling. The melodic music further enhances the experience on our electric massage tables. We also have a spinalator table for your use.
As a new patient, you will be treated like we would want to be treated. In the tranquil corral room is where a detailed patient history is taken as well as various orthopedic tests are performed. We also evaluate posture and weight distribution or balance in this room. Our new patient coordinator, Jill, helps to set even the most anxious patient's mind at ease throughout this initial process. Great care and attention is given to collecting history and data with the least possible physical stress on the body. Remember, when your spine is in line...you will feel fine! Get ready to feel great:) You will also be scanned with the Insight Millenium. This state of the art technology allows us to test patients for nerve interferences (called subluxations) as well as muscle spasms or range of motion. These tests are like a 'window' to the inside--they help us see what is happening from the 'inside-out'. Should you need ice or heat we have a very private comfortable area to receive whatever therapy you may need.
After your exam/re-exam, either Dr. Molly or their highly compentent staff review your findings in the Report of Findings Room. This is also a place where you can talk to the doctor or staff at any time confidentially. You may also talk to the doctors in their office.(see below)
This is our Aquabed massage table. Once you use this bed, you may just want to leave your significant other because you will feel so good! Pulsating hot jets of water massage your back while you stay dry. Sessions can be purchased either at the front desk. Schedule "your me time" now as the times fill up quickly.
We also have a dry sauna which is great for arthritis pain, diabetes, fibromyalgia and more.
One of the main reasons why we moved the clinic was the overwhelming demand of patients to include strength and training sessions in their rehabilitation plan. You will see below that this gym is not the typical gym. We have all kinds of equipment! The list includes but is not limited to the following: treadmills, elliptical, pilates, bosu trainers, fit for life, balance balls, hand weights, kettleballs, WII, total gym, steps, bow flex, bicycles, wobble boards, posture pumps, bar weights, body fat analyzer scales, U-Gallop, Leg Magic, Medicine Balls, ropes, cones, Theraband Wellness stations, rowers, inversion tables... If you need help, chances are great that we have the equipment you need. After hours, you may even see Dr. Molly's "kids" on the treadmill working out.
