First State Health & Wellness in Wilmington

Delivering quality chiropractic care in Northern Delaware since 1995

weilmington location front deskOur approach is simple. We believe that health is amongst our most valuable possessions. And while we generally meet people after they’ve lost their health, our commitment is two-fold.

Many people seek care in our practice and have one goal: relief. So that’s where we start! During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations:

Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem

Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible

Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery

Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care

Our desire is to see our practice members abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favor of the emerging wellness model.

If needed, patients of our integrative health center will have priority access to medically co-managed care, including:

  • Comprehensive medical evaluation
  • Electromyography (EMG) testing to diagnose nerve problems
  • Evaluation and treatment of post-concussion syndrome
  • State-of-the-art imaging tests
  • Regenerative therapies to stimulate cell regeneration
  • Advanced pain management options

You’re the Boss

Regardless of your health goals, please understand that we see ourselves as mere servants. You’re the boss! It’s your body, your health and your future. Our job is to offer you the finest chiropractic care possible in Wilmington, make appropriate recommendations and work together to achieve your goals.
