Walnut Creek Chiropractor
In today’s health care environment, you have many choices. In my office, we offer conservative chiropractic care in the treatment of many health care concerns. We focus our care on returning you to your normal daily activities quickly and as cost effectively as possible.
Chiropractic is the largest drug free, non-surgical, health care profession in the world. In addition to chiropractic care, we also have well qualified massage therapists that focus on therapeutic massage.
Once you come to our office, you will immediately notice our attention to detail, as well as the extended time we spend with you to discover the cause of your health concern. Once the cause of your concern is determined, we will provide you with the information you need to make an educated health care decision.
When I began my practice in 1994, I set a goal of helping as many people as I could. Since that time, I have treated thousands of patients, each with different health concerns. In each case, I do a complete evaluation of the patient and put together a plan to help that patient with their concern.
When being treated in my office, your care may include:
Cervical traction to reduce nerve compression and improve posture
Lumbar traction to reduce nerve compression and hydrate discs
Use of ice packs or heat
My objective is to return my patients to their routines as quickly as possible, at minimal expense. I feel strongly that patients must take an active role in their own healing process, and that is why all of my patients receive an extensive home exercise program to improve strength and flexibility.

In our office, we feel exercise is a key component in our patients’ recovery. Patients are prescribed an appropriate exercise program for their condition. Dr. Herting has hundreds of exercises he can choose from to develop the most appropriate program. Each program comes with pictures and descriptions of the exercises. Whenever necessary, Dr. Herting will then demonstrate the correct way to do each exercise.
Are you suffering from any of the following?
Lower back pain
Before fitting you, Dr. Herting will spend time with you to make sure he understands your exact problem, and he’ll discuss with you what options will work best for you.
Dr. Herting will then take an impression of your feet. This is done to make a custom orthotic to be worn inside your shoes. There are different styles of orthotics and they are designed to fit most shoes — from athletic shoes to dress shoes. We even have orthotics specialized for diabetics and children.
Our custom orthotics are customized for your feet. They’re not like store bought orthotic insoles, which are generic in size and contour. Some of our custom orthotics are more rigid for increased control of your feet, while others are more flexible for comfort.
