When it comes to these sorts of questions, how do you find the answer that you’re looking for? Online reviews might be one place you look. But, is this really how you look for your doctor? Another way is by getting a personal recommendations from a friend or family – maybe from Facebook, Twitter, in person over lunch, etc.
This can be the best way if you know nothing of the doctor, the type of person they are or the type of care they provide because you trust your friend or family member. So, rather than boast that “Dr. Mike Funicello is the best chiropractor in Gilbert, Arizona”, you be the judge. Read on to learn how our office might be the perfect fit for you.
Who Is Dr. Mike?
That’s me, sitting on my grandpa’s knee many years ago. I decided to be a chiropractor when I grew up! My dreams of playing harmonica in a traveling band were changed for a higher calling. Ha, imagine that! Follow this link to learn more about me and what we do in our office.
I’ve been in private practice in the field of chiropractic since 1998, serving the communities of the southeast valley. That’s a long time and I’m looking forward to many more!
The point is, I’ve been doing this work for quite some time. During that time, I’ve come across hundreds of different types of conditions, symptoms, complaints, struggles, health challenges or crises and other issues facing my patients.
I want you to know that you’re not just some folder or ‘case’ that gets filed away after you’re feeling better. You actually become part of something, part of our ‘office family’.
Maybe it’s part of my Italian family roots thing, but it’s just the way I care about the people who come to be for help. That might sound corny to you, but it’s true. I take as good care of you as I do my own family – some of whom you’re likely to run into and meet in my office as they regularly come in for care, too. If you’re looking for an office with this type of atmosphere, then Infinite Healing Arts Center is your answer.
I can tell you right off the bat that if you are just interested in a quick pop or crack, then you should definitely keep looking for that cheapest chiropractor in Gilbert. But, do you really want to trust your health to the cheapest doctor in town?
This shouldn’t confuse you into thinking that our fees are so high that it isn’t affordable. In fact, the office fees allow us to provide affordable chiropractic with the highest level of service and caring around. That sounds like some kind of sound bite or slogan as you read it, but I will openly put my level of care and dedication to helping you against any doctor in the Valley.
In fact, our office is one of only 10 (at the time of this writing) in the entire state offering the type of care we do. Our office is convenient for people living in Mesa, some parts of Chandler (you know how the roads can get), Tempe, Scottsdale and obviously Gilbert. We have people that drive to see us from Anthem and Maricopa because of the care they receive with us. There’s plenty of examples of these personal success stories on our site for you to read if you like.
What Makes Us Unique?
There is a ‘What to Expect‘ page on our site above that was created specifically to help address this question, because I think it is that important. The only thing I can say is that the care you receive comes from the heart, there’s just no other way to put it.
People come to us for ongoing care to continue living their best life because they understand how regular care is as important as the food they’re eating and the exercise they’re doing.
I simply will not give up until you are living a better, more enjoyable, healthier life!
No matter what it takes, I will commit that to you. This doesn’t mean more care, more supplements, a different type of adjustment, therapy or latest gadget to use on you.
What it DOES mean is that you are a whole person, with emotions, habits, concerns and stresses that live outside of our office. It would be unfair to you and incomplete care, in my opinion, not to help you get those aspects addressed as well. You’ll get a sense of this when you complete your comprehensive health assessment intake forms. We really want to know what is going on in your life so that we can get to the very bottom of what is happening. This way, we can best help you. Makes sense, yes?
Do I Have to Come Forever?
This is a fair question. It’s one of those ‘urban myths’ of chiropractic that we’ve done a poor job of answering directly. The only way to completely answer the question is to give you some personal examples and analogies and then let you come to your own conclusions.
If you thought that you only had a bone that was out of place, then you might think “once this bone gets put back, I’ll be fine and don’t need to come back”. Sounds about right, yes? Well, yes, IF that was what was going on, I’d agree. The problem is, this isn’t what is going on, it is much more complex.
While this does occur, as in the case of a herniated disc that is protruding into your nerve root exiting your spinal canal, it is just not the most common reason to have back pain, neck pain, headaches or any number of other symptoms. In fact, many people with a herniated disc, have no symptoms. How can this be? It is because there are ‘other’ factors to consider.
A better analogy would be one of having your teeth checked and cleaned regularly, eating a healthy diet or exercising. What do all of these have in common? That’s right, you do them on a regular basis to achieve the results you want and expect from them.
Chiropractic care is like dental care and hygiene of your spine.
Since your spine is intimately connected and related to your nervous system (including your brain, spinal cord and all of your nerves extending to your organs), it only makes sense to keep it functioning well. So, you should only come as long as you want to have your nervous system working its best, most optimum level. My family and I – and a large majority of my practice, I might add – choose to receive this care regularly, too. It’s not just because I told them to either. It’s because they see the results of receiving care!
This is what really matters to you anyway, right?
Your nervous system is what helps you to adapt more effectively to stress and the demands of life, whether those are physical, mental, emotional, psychological or biochemical. If you don’t work, have a relationship made in heaven, have no kids, have all the money you could imagine, feel supported in all aspects of your life and are otherwise perfect, then you will probably respond really quickly and have the need for much less care than other people who live on planet Earth. 🙂
If you are someone who skates by in life, then you probably don’t pay much attention to your diet, physical fitness or things like dental hygiene. It wouldn’t even matter how much research or ‘proof’ we could provide to you – you’d still make poor choices regarding your health. While I’m not trying to judge this type of lifestyle, I’m just saying that this type of person is not a good candidate for our office.
The reason is because we care for the heck out of you and if you don’t do this for yourself already, then we won’t make a great team or fit for you.
Okay, I can tell this article is getting quite long and I’m starting to ramble a bit away from the point of who the best chiropractor in Gilbert is. As you can tell, I can’t give you the answer to that question. You have to answer it for yourself.
The best place to answer the question is from within. Ask your friends who they see. We probably see some of them. We’re the best kept secret in the city! If this isn’t enough of an answer for you, just bookmark this page and continue on your search. You’ll probably find that this is where you’ll keep coming back.
I just can’t help myself, I love what I do and am just this passionate about helping you get the results that you’re looking for, too. I’ll tell you that I also have other chiropractors as patients. Who is the best of the best in Gilbert? I’ll leave that up to you. To get started, contact us and set up your initial visit and evaluation. Looking forward to seeing you real soon!
