Welcome! We Are Glad To Meet You!

Our team focuses on healing the whole body, not just hiding the symptoms. Our education process is just as important as we want you to understand the “How” and “Why” to implement better key essentials to help you maintain health and wellness for life.

We specialize in Structural Correction, which includes custom care programs designed by Complete Structural Exams, Radiographic Assessments, and Interpretation. Digital Structural Assessments. Structural Spinal Adjustments are provided in various techniques and positions: Diversified, Koren, Thompson, Logan, Websters, and Flexion Distraction provide gentle and effective treatments.
Come Experience The Difference
Your First Visit
At your first visit, you will personally meet the team, have a tour of the office, and be asked to fill out some necessary paperwork. After the consultation, Dr. Freedman will perform a thorough examination, including chiropractic and orthopedic tests. At that time, we will decide if x-rays will be necessary. We have a convenient on-site x-ray facility, and they can be taken immediately following the exam. If you have current X-Rays, we encourage you to bring them with you.
Your Second Visit
At this visit, you will have a computerized spinal scan, called a subluxation station, that will give an idea of the function of the muscles and the nerves of the spine. Generally, we run a series of three scans. You will also be adjusted and receive additional therapy if needed.
Your Third Visit
At this follow-up visit, you will sit down with Dr. Freedman for a detailed explanation of your exam findings. Dr. Freedman will adjust you and provide some additional therapy if needed. This visit should take approximately 45 minutes, depending on how much information Dr. Freedman needs to share with you regarding the health of your spine. A team member should provide your paper and pen that you can also take home with you to either write down any information you want to while you’re in the office or to jot down any questions you may have when you get home. Once you are accepted as a new member of the practice, we will be completely committed to achieving your health goals, and your care can begin. Re-evaluations are performed often, and your progress will be closely monitored.
Regular Scheduled Visits
You are the ultimate decision-maker when it comes to your body and your health. You are, first and foremost, a valued client. However, this relationship is unique because for you to experience the full benefits of chiropractic care, we need to work together as partners. The overall objective is to get you to a pain-free state and get you back to being the best you ever! Therefore, it’s really important to keep your appointments. We will always be respectful of your time and do our very best to keep our day running on schedule.
A Special History Note
Dr. Gabrielle Freedman has chiropractic care in her blood, literally! Her Dad, Dr. Barry Freedman, established his first chiropractic care office on Franklin Street in Quincy in 1978 and opened the doors of his new location, where Dr. Gabrielle Freedman practices today, in 1984. She grew up in her dad’s office, where her mom worked, and where at the age of ten, she was answering the phones!
Gabrielle went on to pursue her own chiropractic career. In 1995 Dr. Freedman came home to 112 McGrath Highway to work with her dad and in July of 1997 purchased the business and put her name on the door. If our office feels like a home – we’re glad as that’s exactly what it should feel like because it is for Dr. Freedman and to so many families who generationally have been treated by both Dr. Freedmans.
