About Our Practice

First Steps Chiropractic was founded in 2018 under a simple principle. We get results. Healthy families is what we strive for and we look forward to meeting you and your family in our office.

First Steps Chiropractic is a state-of-the-art chiropractic office that is proud to serve the people of North Idaho and the surrounding communities. Torque Release Technique (TRT) is a very unique approach to health care and this unique approach allows him to identify spinal conditions, correct postural distortions and help people with conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, disc degeneration, disc decay, scoliosis and many other conditions Our mission is to educate, to encourage and to empower our community to take the first step toward improving their health through neurologically-based chiropractic care.

Torque Release Technique

A Torque Release Technique (TRT) adjustment can be delivered with the spine in a perfectly relaxed, neutral position and with the perfect amount of force. In contrast, a traditional adjustment requires the spine to be stretched to a position of tension followed by the manual thrust by hand to sufficiently open the spinal joints to activate a cavitation response.

First Steps Chiropractic’s practice members enjoy the specific adjustment without the force, cracking and popping sound of manual adjustments.

Are You Dealing With Chronic Pain or Conditions?

We pride ourselves at being able to provide an alternative proactive form of healthcare that empowers you. The CDC notes that almost 25% of Americans are living with chronic pain and it is the #1 reason that we seek medical care. From limitations to daily activities, an increase dependency on Opiods, an increase in anxiety and depression among children and adults to the perception that being sick and in pain is part of life. We know that your body was designed for more and you were meant to express health, not chase it. Chronic pain is defined as pain that last for longer than 3 months and does not follow the normal healing process. Pain is expected to stop once the underlying cause is treated. That is exactly what we do, treat the cause of your symptoms not just cover them up.
