If you have been suffering from neck or back pain, headaches, loss of sleep, or bouts of depression or anxiety, the New Health Chiropractic 10th Anniversary could interest you. They are offering an initial exam for just $10 throughout May’s anniversary celebration to anyone and everyone who requests an appointment. More on that later in this article.
It would be hard to find a more dynamic couple than Drs. Tommy and Vanessa Wolf, a young couple who met in college, married, and chose Concord to be their home and to launch their business, The New Health Chiropractic Center.
Both received their undergraduate degree at Cal state Long Beach in Kinesiology. They did not know each other there as Dr. Tommy graduated three years ahead of Dr. Vanessa. Dr. Tommy grew up in Antioch while Dr. Vanessa grew up in the San Diego area. However, they both went to Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward where they met and obtained their Chiropractic Degree.
They decided to go into business together and began their practice on May 13, 2013, in a small 10’ x 10’ office space on the corner of Treat and Cowell in Concord. Before having to move upstairs to a 450 ft. space. Still growing, after four years, they relocated to their current locations in Park & Shop Shopping Center, 849 Willow Pass Rd. Suite 450. They have added two employees and a chiropractic intern. Meanwhile, their family grew as well. The Wolfs welcomed two sons, Stryker and Walker.
The pair enthusiastically integrated into the community. Dr. Tommy served as President of the Clayton Valley/Concord Sunrise Rotary Club, and Dr. Vanessa was President of Concord’s Todos Santos Business Association for six years. She now serves on the board.
As for their business success, Dr. Vanessa said, “We pride ourselves in that we have a very high energy office. The music is always playing. We have edutainment days that may include themes and we may be in costumes. We want people to feel good and feel that positive energy when they leave.”
Their clients can positively attest to the atmosphere. “We polled our patients to describe our office in one word and the three top words were fun, welcoming, and educational.”
After going through the corrective adjustments, patients attend weekly lifestyle group sessions. With a topic or question of week or day, they are constantly educating on health and the nervous system and how chiropractic can help in a variety of different health areas. “They get their adjustments and leave with some Board of Health education so they can take control of their health and wellness themselves,” Dr. Vanessa explains.
Dr. Tommy says they use the highest technology in the profession, offering digital spinal x-rays and nerve scans, [electromyography (EMG)], to measure the spine and nerves. EMG measures muscle response or electrical activity in response to a nerve’s stimulation of the muscle. The test helps detect neuromuscular abnormalities.
“We can guide patients’ lifestyle based on the ways stress caused from their current lifestyle is affecting the central nervous system,” Dr. Tommy states. “Our digital nerve scan measures the amount of stress on the nervous system. We talk about physical, chemical and emotional stress and how that negatively affects our health and causes detrimental effects on our nervous system leading to chronic pain or disease. We can target our care and adjustments more specifically, so patients get improved pain management and wellness lifestyle coaching.
“The technology measures the beginning of disfunction rather than the end stage of the disfunction. For example, a blood test will measure the later stages of a chronic disease. We can address the issues at its beginning,” he says.
Most patients come in with neck or back pain, but once corrected, many will experience sleep improvement, digestive improvement and mood improvement. It can also lead to a decrease in anxiety, depression, and stress in addition to pain relief.
In the past 10 years, Drs. Tommy and Vanessa have helped many patients. And they wish to help many more with their wellness education.
The Concord Chamber of Commerce will host a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on May 12, with light refreshments, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. All are invited to attend and meet and greet these two energetic doctors. If you do, you will receive a certificate for a complimentary first visit, a value up to $230.
And what about the $10 exam? All you need to do is request an appointment to receive this opportunity. An exam includes consultation, exam, nerve scan, and x-Rays (if needed). That offer will end May 31. To set the appointment, see their ad below and call click, or scan the QR code.
They both enthusiastically agree, “We love it in Concord.” Given all you have done to serve the community and its residents these past 10 years, the people of Concord are happy you do.
