How do I use ice to heal my pain?
Ice should be used during the first 72 hours after an injury or an aggravation. The affected area should be iced every 2 hours, for 20 min.
How do I use heat to treat pain?
Use heat to speed injury healing after your injury has completed its inflammatory stage. This happens for 72 hours after an injury or aggravation, so you should heat after the initial 72-hour icing period. Apply a heat pack 2-5 times daily, for 10-30 min. Make sure that your heat pack is at a comfortable, warm temperature, so as not to cause a burn.
Do I need a doctor to refer me to a Physiotherapist?
No, in the state of California, for the first 12 visits or 45 days (whichever comes first)patients do not need a doctor to be referred to a physiotherapist. However, some private insurance agencies do require a doctor’s referral. Consult your private insurance agency to find out more.

This will be their 21st review, and their 21st 5-star review. So, let me just preface this by stating that all of the 5-star reviews they’re getting on here are certainly well-earned. I’ve had back issues since I was injured in Iraq over a decade ago. For a long time, I was seeing a chiro in the Midwest where I lived previously. But I moved out to California about 18 months ago and had tried to find someone comparable to my old chiro, but with little luck (until now). I went to a few places (which I’ll leave unnamed for now), and I didn’t like their methodology. Most places seemed more interested in squeezing every last buck out of you, and putting you on some wellness plan, which I did not need or want. I’m quite healthy and athletic, thank you. Read More

It was my first time at a chiropractor, and I was a little nervous. But the whole staff made it a very comfortable and pleasant experience. Dr. Soloway was very caring and asked a lot of questions about my situation. I went on a massage therapy bed and then the Dr. did the adjustment and was very gentle but still effective. He also gave me tips on stretches and exercises I should do. I left feeling so much better! Read More
I’ve never been to a chiropractor before so this was a new experience. Thankfully, it has been outstanding in treatment, service and care. I initially came in for a pulled shoulder muscle that wouldn’t go away. Initially, I didn’t know where I should go for treatment, but I’m glad I started here. There are massage therapists in office too!Dr Soloway and his staff are attentive and efficient. You are treated as a person here. Read More
