Chiropractic Adjustment

The Chiropractic adjustment specializes in restoring proper functioning of the nervous system, spine, and associated joints such as the shoulder, knee, and ankle to name a few. The adjustment has been proven to be exceptionally safe and effective, especially when performed by a Doctor of Chiropractic who specializes in advanced training of the human spine, nervous system, and biomechanics of the human body. This is what we utilize to achieve such great results at our Crofton, Bowie, and Odenton office.

The Chiropractic adjustment achieves many unique effects:

Restores proper range of motion.

Optimizes blood flow, which brings oxygen and nutrients to the tissue.

Balances neurological input to the supporting muscles that stabilize, move, and protect the spine and joint. Simply put, eliminates dysfunction.

Brings the body's interpretation/threshold of pain to proper levels.

There are various methods of delivering the adjustment depending on the health status, age, and comfort level of the patient. Precise Chiropractic & Rehabilitation works with you to determine the most comfortable and effective method of achieving the results you desire.

We look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

Dry Needling

$25/region or covered by insurance

This technique is effective, minimally invasive, proven, and extremely safe. Simply stated, the needle itself acts to physically disrupt the tension and pressure within the involved tissue. It unlocks the tissue, thereby encouraging said tissue to return to a more normal and improved level of function. The improved level of function within the tissue includes biomechanical, neurological, and chemical components. Muscle tone and myofascial tissue tension is reset so that the effectiveness of adjustments and functional rehabilitation are enhanced.

Auto Accident Care

Covered by Personal Injury Protection

Have you been involved in a car accident? Precise Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has extensive experience, proven results, and the support needed to help you recover from your injuries. You may be suffering from a minor ache to loss of mobility and time away from the job. We treat you with compassion, focus, and competency that our office has built a reputation around. Precise Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has extensive knowledge regarding paperwork and handling insurance claims so that you may focus on the recovery process.

Functional Rehabilitation

The goal of our functional rehabilitation program is to return your body to healthy movement patterns. Your health is a result of your habits, and how you move is the greatest impacting habit of all when it comes to the health and longevity of your spine, back, neck, and shoulders. Our program is far more than stretching a tight region, strengthening an injured body part, or utilizing electric stimulation or ultrasound for a sore spot. Our protocol restores you to your optimal functioning capacity for the task at hand. Work, family, sport, or your favorite passion, it does not matter, we prepare you properly and effectively. This is what sets our Crofton, Maryland and the greater areas of Bowie, Odenton, and Gambrills office apart and has provided our patients with long lasting results rather than simple temporary pain relief.

Customer Testimonials

Dr. Hands is very professional and cares about his patients. I had lived with chronic back pain for over a year and was at the point I could not take it anymore. I have 3 bulging discs and scoliosis of the spine. Dr Hands was recommended to me and I am so glad I booked an appointment with his office. I am pain free today and never felt better. I have not had any problems with the billing dept that was stated in another review. His assistant Shannon is wonderful. Book an appointment today with Dr. Hands and you won’t be sorry he is awesome.

Awesome best chiropractor in the world! Very nice and great at what he dose wouldn't go anywhere else.

Dr. Hands is wonderful! I've taken my 7 week old for adjustments to help with reflux. It's already working wonders. Dr. Hands is gentle, patient and very caring. I look forward to using him for all our family chiropractic needs for many years in the future. Highly recommend!

I was involved in a car accident last week and suffered from whiplash, and back and neck pain. In just a few painless and immediately gratifying visits, I was "back" up and running. Thanks Dr. Hands!

After weeks of sciatic pain in my lower back due to herniated bulging discs, Dr. Hands has once again effectively relieved that pain, has me back on track for building my core to keep the pain at bay to be back enjoying things I love. I have been going to Dr. Hands for years now (on and off for pain management when needed) and I was probably the biggest skeptic of Chiropractic care in the beginning, since then Dr. Hands has shown me “hands” down (pun intended) that he cares for his patients. His unpretentious character and the warm and friendly atmosphere at the crucible make every visit seem like a little slice of heaven. I HIGHLY recommend you at least go see him one time and I assure you it will be well worth it.

I came to Dr Hands with a badly torn meniscus and was on crutches at that time. I was slated for surgery and gave him three weeks to see if we could at least get me ready for the surgery as I would have PT after the surgery anyway. That was 7 weeks ago and I eventually cancelled the surgery and am walking with zero pain and am now strengthening my leg muscles to eventually get back to cycling. Dr Hands has done a miraculous job, I didn't believe it was possible given the amount of pain I was in at the outset. I also visit Dr Hands when my lower back is out and walk away every time as though it never happened!

After years of being in pain and finding no relief or answers, I came to see Dr. Hands. I am glad that I did. Not only has he helped hugely with my pain and structural issues, but he has provided me with exercises to help and has made sure that I understand what is happening within and to my body. Moreover, he has a network of wonderful specialists to help with a series of other issues, and I have not be disappointed in those recommendations either! His office is warm and inviting, and he has proven over and over again that he is a patient-first doctor. I could not recommend him more highly.

Dr. Hands has THE hands! I have been to about 8-10 chiropractors and Dr. Hands is the best. I like his approach because he seems to incorporate a holistic viewpoint with the western medical viewpoint. This approach is vital to bettering someone because everyone is different and has different needs. It allows for more variety to the patients in finding the treatments that work best for them.

He offers endless knowledge about the body, is dedicated to helping each individual with their personal wellness, and always has a positive attitude. I recommend going to Dr. Hands whether you have a physical goal to reach or trying to heal from an injury. I personally have had muscular tension in my back and have been trying to increase my overall flexibility as a professional dancer in order to reach my goal of going into a full split. He has continued to work with me and has helped me continue to better myself physically and mentally.

Thank you, Dr. Hands!

From Our Website

As a chiropractor in Crofton, MD serving all the surrounding areas, this is what drives Dr. Hands every day at Precise Chiropractic & Rehabilitation: Relieving your pain and giving you the best quality of life possible. Many people settle for the tiredidea that pain is normal in our everyday lives. We often believe that neck and back pain are expected with our jobs and thatheadaches are normal from a busy day. Many of usno longer participate in activities with our kids, friends, or in our passions because we believe that loss of function is normal as we grow older.

Dr. Hands continued his education following his pre-med studies into perusing his Doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. A combination of working with people to achieve higher levels of health, personal experiences with chiropractic care, and a hands on approach all contributed to choosing chiropractic as his career and passion. Through the Crofton office of Precise Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, Dr. Hands looks forward to serving the community as well as the surrounding communities of Bowie, Odenton, and Gambrills, Maryland.
