The California Dept. of Public Health along with the Center for Disease Control require masks to be worn in ALL health care facilities. COVID is a respiratory virus; as such all staff, patients and visitors must adhere to this directive at all Riverside Medical Clinic locations. ANYONE who refuses to comply will be asked to leave the facility. Many patients treated at clinics such as RMC have health issues that put them at a higher risk. This mask policy is designed to protect all our patients.
Chiropractic is a health care specialty that deals with the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. It is recognized as one of the safest treatments for back, neck, joints, and headaches. As a pain-relief alternative, it’s sometimes used with medical treatment by other providers. Our chiropractic department is just one more option to round out your health care needs. If your insurance has chiropractic coverage, speak with your primary provider to be referred. If you do not have coverage or are doing private pay, you may contact the chiropractor directly.
Our chiropractor will develop a treatment plan that is specially formatted for you.
Neck pain and headaches can be treated through precise manipulation. It’s a safe procedure that works to improve joint mobility. This works in the neck, restores range of motion, relieves pressure, and reduces muscle spasms. The treatment involves using the hands or a device to quickly apply controlled force to joints. The idea behind the treatment is that proper alignment of the musculoskeletal structure will allow the body to heal itself.

A Doctor of Chiropractic practices a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes diagnosis and treatment. Our provider compliments and supports medical treatment. Chiropractors may use exams, lab testing, diagnostic imaging, and other methods to assess patient health needs. Our provider is trained to provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counseling. We may also recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises. This will improve a patient’s condition. They will also readily refer patients to another physician to supplement care.
