Services & Techniques

At Health Quest, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different services we offer in our Health Quest office.


Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques.  Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.  As Doctors of Chiropractic, Drs. Ettlinger, and Grady have more than 20 years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.


Physical therapy

Doctors of chiropractic receive a minimum of 4,200 hours of combined classroom, laboratory, and clinical experience and, in Maryland, can also be licensed to perform physical therapy.   Dr. Ettlinger and Dr. Grady are trained and licensed to complement the healing effects of their chiropractic treatment with the following physical therapy procedures:

  • Ultrasound
  • Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
  • Mechanical traction
  • Cryotherapy
  • Moist heat therapy
  • Paraffin bath
  • Rehabilitation programs
  • Dry Needling Trigger Point Therapy
  • Spinal Decompression

Rehabilitative Exercises

We use our state-of-the-art exercise equipment to teach you special exercises designed to help strengthen and correct your own unique problem.  These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your treatment by as much as 30-40%.  In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use.  Specific exercises and stretches can help you stabilize and strengthen injured areas, leading to long-term relief of your condition.  See the Member Wellness section of this website to see online 3-D demonstrations of most exercises.



Health and Wellness Program

For every one of our patients, we provide lifestyle "coaching" about certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge.  For those wishing to get our help with reaching weight loss and fitness goals, we also offer the METABOLIZE program.  We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.


Nutritional Assessment

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health.  Ask to take a complimentary Symptom Survey, with which we will generate a full report offering natural alternatives for issues such as stress, insomnia, headaches, muscle cramps, hair loss, digestive problems, etc.


Spinal & Postural Screenings

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being.  We provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment.  Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
