Genesis Chiropractic is the ONLY healthcare clinic in NWA where you will find this unique combination of vitalistic functional diagnostic tools and our precise Upper Cervical Specific protocols. This office is also the only location in NW Arkansas providing vitalistic upper cervical specific chiropractic care for the whole family!

When it comes to our patients’ health and well-being, we promise to provide the most precise individualized care, scientific analysis, attention to every detail, and compassion for your needs.
NEW (and prospective) Patient Consultation Appointments available twice each week at no charge:
Monday and Thursday at 12:00 PM (noon) Please call ahead to secure a date & time: 479.696.8000

If our complimentary consultation times do not work for you, we are happy to schedule a private consultation at your convenience during the doctor’s normal office hours for $75.00.
During these consultation appointments, the doctor will answer all of your questions and help you figure out if this approach is a good match for your needs.

You and your family can depend on Dr. Blackketter to deliver the safest form of health care in the world. Our non-invasive natural gentle approach is founded on the most scientifically studied and documented procedure in the chiropractic profession. No drugs, no surgery, no therapies, no manipulation, no popping, no twisting, no cracking, no traction, no fear.

+ New Patient 1st visit Consultation, History, Assessment, and Upper Cervical Specific X-rays $300.00 (or $375 if you were unable to attend our standard consultation)
++ Your individualized Report, Recommendations for Care, and 1st Adjustment $100.00
+++ Follow-up Office Visits are only $60.00, whether or not we need to adjust you again
++++ Spinal Care Class, FREE orientation to help you get the best results from your care plan

+ Your 1st visit to Genesis Chiropractic will take about 60-75 minutes and includes the following:

1. Private Consultation and History – after we have determined you are a good candidate for this type of care, we’ll discover how we can help you reach your goals. (We provide a FREE group consultation on Mondays and Thursdays at 12:00 PM. Please call first to set up any appointment 479.696.8000)

2. Complete VITALISTIC* Chiropractic Assessment (functional evaluation) including:
> digital infrared paraspinal thermography (nerve function scan with Tytron)
> posture assessment
> range of motion
> peak flow breathing test (lung function)
> static and motion palpation of the spine
> body balance and muscle tone assessment
> bilateral grip strength (upper extremity neuromusculoskeletal function)
> cranial nerve exam (as needed based on case)
> reflex/sensory/motor strength/proprioceptive evaluation(s) (as needed)
> review of systems (verbal overview of bodily functions)
> precision 3-D stereoscopic spinography (specialized X-rays of cervical spine) — Our specific x-ray protocol takes out all the guess work! In addition to analyzing the overall structure and balance of the head and neck, the Blair Upper Cervical Specific views allow us to literally “see each individual joint in the cervical spine” for misalignment and dysfunction.

3. Brief Video, Preliminary Report of Findings, and “take-home” Reading Assignment – Patients will watch the introduction to “The Power of Upper Cervical” documentary and then receive our “homework” reading assignment to be completed prior to the 2nd day in our office. (This allows the doctor adequate time to: review your case, analyze the x-rays, determine the specific adjustment you need based on your unique anatomy and spinal misalignment, and develop the very best care plan for you and your family.)

++ Your 2nd Day at our Clinic usually takes about 45 minutes and includes the following:

1. Orientation and Vitalistic Report of Findings with the doctor. We offer an exciting New Patient Spinal Care Class as part of our orientation for new patients. This interactive, practical class meets every Tuesday at 12:00 PM (noon) and sometimes on Tuesday at 7:00 PM if we have a large group sign up. Your questions are very important to us, so please feel free to ask the doctor anything. (We always guard your private health information and remain HIPPA compliant.)

2. Nerve Function & Posture Checks – another thermographic scan of the C-spine, palpation, and postural analysis.

3. Recommendations for Care – based on x-rays, history, individual needs, and personal health goals.

4. First Upper Cervical Specific Adjustment – based on the unique shape, contours, angles, and misalignment factors of the joints in your upper neck (Remember: there is NO popping, twisting, cracking, pulling, or traction in our office).

5. Post Adjustment Rest & Relaxation – a mandatory (yet much appreciated) opportunity for you to slow down, rest, and let your body relax. The goal is better balance, improved function, and increased Brain-to-Body communication so you can begin the process of correction, restoration, and healing.

+++ Follow-up Office Visits usually take between 10 and 35 minutes (the time is based on our findings, your progress through the care plan, and whether we adjust or not) – It is crucial for the doctor to monitor your newly restored brain-to-body connection and evaluate your progress toward better health.
Follow-up visits or “nerve system check up” visits include:

1. Nerve Function & Posture Checks – thermographic scan of the C-spine, postural analysis & leg checks, and spinal palpation.

2. Decision to Adjust or Not – based on findings each day (because Dr. Blackketter adjusts with more precision than traditional chiropractors, he expect clients to hold adjustments longer and need fewer adjustments).
Are you clearly connected between Brain & Body? If yes, we will celebrate that you are healing & balancing! The doctor will not adjust you during a “clear visit” because you don’t need it!
On the other hand, if you are subluxated again (and unfortunately needing another adjustment), then the doctor will be happy to adjust you, and the good news is there is NO extra charge beyond the standard office visit fee.

3. Post Adjustment Rest & Relaxation – if adjusted you will get to slow down, rest, and let your body relax again with the goal of correction, restoration, and healing.

++++ Spinal Care Class – FREE orientation seminar to help you get the best results from our system
We will do everything we can to help move your toward better health, but it will be a partnership…
…you and the doctor cooperating and working together as a team, almost like a consultant works with clients or like a coach works with athletes. This interactive, practical class is more like a workshop on “How the Body Really Works, and what you can do to Be Your Best!” We’ll teach how to hold the adjustment as long as possible so your body can correct its problems naturally and efficiently.
Our goal is to Revitalize Your Life…through Upper Cervical Care!
