The Doctor

Dr. Craig W.Brue, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Craig W. Brue, a Wisconsin native, received his B.A. degree from St. Olaf College in 1969. After spending two years of active duty in the U.S. Army Band, Dr. Brue attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, Iowa, where he graduated summa cum laude in 1974.

After practicing chiropractic in Stoughton, Wisconsin for 25 years, he and his wife, Carol, moved to Arizona to retire. After enjoying 6 years of retirement, Dr. Brue decided that he missed the challenge of helping patients get well. It was then that Dr. Brue established the Brue Chiropractic Center in SaddleBrooke, AZ.

Dr Brue utilizes the Gonstead, Thompson, Palmer, and Activator techniques for the correction of spinal problems. He has also had extensive postgraduate training in extremity (shoulder, hand, knee, and foot) problems. Dr. Brue's 30 plus years of clinical experience is an important factor when it comes to choosing your personal chiropractor for health care.

Dr. Brue also utilizes a chiropractic adjusting intstrument called the Impulse. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument feels like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In most cases the treatment is painless and after the adjustment many patients feel relief of pain and improved mobility. Others report a sense of well-being or a soothing calm feeling. Of course, results vary from case to case, but most patients treated with this method have a very positive experience. This type of instrument adjusting is especially good for those patients that have advanced osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, and previous spinal surgery. With these difficult and chronic conditions, more aggressive adjusting techniques may not be recommended by the doctor.

The aim of a chiropractic spinal adjustment, whether done by hand or with an adjusting instrument, is to correct the structural problem that is affecting the function of your body. When spinal vertebrae are out of alignment (subluxated), and when spinal joints are not moving properly (spinal fixations), your health is affected because delicate spinal nerves are affected. When nerves are pinched, damaged or irritated, these nerves alert your brain that something is wrong. Symptoms, including pain, are usually the result. You may be feeling stiff, sore, achey and tired. Medications only cover up symptoms, and pain-killing drugs also have dangerous side-effects. Chiropractic care seeks to determine and correct the real cause of the health problem.

Chiropractors are the only doctors that work on the structure of your spine. When the structure of your spine is improved your health will improve.
