New Patient Forms


One of the first questions a patient asks when we suggest EMS or spinal decompression as a treatment option is, "will it hurt?". While certain treatments may produce a strange sensation, pain is never a part of what we do. In order to better prepare you for what to expect with some of the new technologies we employ to relieve discomfort, Barr Chiropractic S.C. has provided some information about some of our more common treatment programs. If you have questions that aren't answered here, feel free to contact us.


A chiropractic adjustment isn't scary or painful. What it merely involves is the use of a small force (like a tap) in a precise direction that helps align the spine the way it's meant to align after life or injury creates slight irregularities. The adjustment is applied to a joint that is fixated, "locked up," or not moving correctly.

Chiropractic treats everything from serious injuries to nagging pain. You may experience back pain requiring chiropractic alignment if you had a severe injury, but you may also need an adjustment from more subtle causes, like slumping in a chair or standing all day at work. We'll examine your spinal alignment and make recommendations customized to your posture and lifestyle.


We're easy to find, just give us a call at (715) 362-6505 to schedule an appointment with our chiropractic team, then come in to our convenient location in Rhinelander, WI,  on 1404 N Stevens Street where it intersects with Vincent Street.
