Meet “The Doc on The Block”
Frank M. Painter, D.C. is a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, the first and finest chiropractic school. Dr. Painter specializes in
the Pierce Results System, an advanced chiropractic technique system, which utilizes computerized thermography for pattern analysis, and motion x-rays to determine the location of motion irregularities, or what we call subluxations of the spine.
Dr. Painter completed a 3-year postgraduate program in rehabilitation, leading to Diplomate status, and because of his specialty training in rehabilitation, he can work as effectively with post-surgical patients as most chiropractors can with spine-related disorders.
The emphasis in our office is for “active care” rehab protocols, which help our patients get back to work and to enjoying their lives as quickly as possible.
Dr. Painter is also trained in a wide variety of soft-tissue manipulation techniques, and several different “extremity” adjusting techniques (elbow, shoulder, knee and ankle). These can be very effective for many types of extremity complaints. We also utilize a spectrum of advanced diagnostic techniques to achieve the best results for all our patients.
We also provide needle-less acupuncture, incorporating Electro Meridian Imaging for a complete analysis. Acupuncture is one of the most researched forms of alternative (or complementary) care, and it is quite successful with a wide variety of complaints.
Our office also offers nutritional consultations to help you speed your recovery, to reduce inflammation, and to strengthen your immune system. Our office only recommends Shaklee supplements, because of the remarkable quality, integrity of design and delivery, and the scientific research which inspired their creation.
Dr. Painter graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1993, with Research Honors for his participation in 3 different research projects. He was also honored with the “Doctor-of-the-Year” award, from the Palmer College Research Department, at the 1997 Centennial of Education Homecoming in Davenport, IA. That plaque hangs proudly in his adjusting room.
