New to Chiropractic?
We see many patients in our office who are new to chiropractic. Usually these patients know that a chiropractor is who you see for back pain or auto injuries. While this is certainly true, you may want to learn a little more about our simple and logical approach to chiropractic healthcare. Another great way to see what’s in store for you is by reading our reviews.
Dr. Illman will take the time to answer your questions and make you feel comfortable when you receive your first chiropractic adjustment. If you have questions for Dr. Illman before your first appointment, feel free to call the office at 303.651.7003, or email him directly at [email protected]

After Your First Visit
We often send patients home with strengthening exercises or stretches that will help speed your recovery. We ask that you follow these recommendations. Occasionally patients are sore after their first adjustment, similar to the soreness you may feel after a long hike or workout. This is a normal, healthy response and will quickly pass.
