Why Balance?Because how you're built matters.
Welcome to Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Center. At our clinic, we strive to perform the most comprehensive exam and analysis possible. With the information we gain, we can educate the patient to make the most informed decision possible about their treatment. We used a variety of chiropractic and physical therapy concepts to achieve the best possible result for the patient.
AdjustmentsWhat is an adjustment?
Also known as a chiropractic manipulation, an adjustment is a quick thrust on a specific area of the spine or extremity, to create movement in an immobile joint. It has several different reasons for creating pain relief and restoring mobility. When joints are not moving adequately, they force other joints to work extra hard to compensate for movement. They also create interference of the nerves that exit through the spaces between vertebrae of the spine. An adjustment restores movement to the vertebrae, and decreases this interference.
PostureThe importance of proper posture
More often than not, patients have jobs that require them to be at a desk for the majority of the day. This creates tremendous stress on the neck, upper/mid back, shoulders and even the low back. With proper posture, the head sits right on top of the shoulders and gravity keeps it in place. The same is true of the shoulders sitting in their joint. Once we lose that proper posture, we are forced to use other means to keep our head and shoulders in place. This includes muscles, tendons and ligaments. Eventually they get tired.

What are our patients saying?We love you too.
Excellent and thorough care! You will have homework but, it's definitely worth it in the end. I started to go to Dr. Salinger because of chronic neck and back pain which has been substantially reduced. It has made a huge improvement in my quality of life and performance of daily activities.
I can't thank enough Dr. Arron and his wonderful staff for helping my daughter with her back pain! Not only Dr. Aaron helped her relieve her physical pain, he has inspired her to learn to develop healthy daily self care habits. Finding Dr. Aaron was a huge relief for us after sending her off to college in Providence. Now with Dr. Aaron's help, she is able to successfully manage her college life without fear of physical pain. Thank you again for all you do, Dr. Aaron!!
I have been to many chiropractors throughout my adult life in Rhode Island and other places I've lived and visited. Dr. Aaron is by far the best. I originally went to see him about a year ago, I was hunched over and had acute pain in my lower back which also affected my legs. He assessed my condition, adjusted me and then had me use a variety of machines in his office. He also took baseline measurements and sent me for x-rays. While my body straightened out fairly quickly, I continued to see him for 10-12 minute visits several times a week until the pain subsided and then he worked with me to put in place a long term wellness strategy. This included home care and regular visits to his office. As I got better, less office visits were required and I continue my home care to this day. After 3, 6, and 9 months, he measured my progress and it has been truly remarkable. I'm so grateful for Dr. Aaron and his practice, a place of healing and health!
