We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
A chiropractic adjustment can improve your spinal mechanics and make you feel so much better. We utilize a variety of manipulative techniques and therapies to address dysfunctions in the spine and extremities. These treatments are also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, spinal manipulation, or an adjustment. The treatment involves the manipulation of the vertebrae and other joints that have abnormal movements, stiffness, pain, and other functional deficits.
The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to reduce joint stiffness, increase the joint range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve regional mobility. Our compassionate and qualified chiropractors will administer these treatments to safely and effectively relieve your symptoms.
Although many people visit their chiropractor and have an adjustment when something feels out of alignment, a regular visit will help you avoid any pain in the future and will keep your body feeling great all day long.
If you are having one of those days when you are not in the best mood, an adjustment may actually help. Your body will feel much better, which will naturally improve your mood.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.
Cryotherapy is a treatment modality that uses ice packs and other methods to cool inflamed and injured areas. Cryotherapy is often used as a part of a multi-pronged plan for reducing pain and controlling inflammation in acute stages of care.

Custom Foot Orthotics
Our soft custom foot orthotics are designed to aid the foot in shock absorption and abnormal mechanics when we stand and walk. They look similar to insoles, but are biomedical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalances. The soft foam will be custom fitted to your shoe and foot. We understand that everyone is different, which is why custom foot orthotics are made just for you in our office.
There are over 150 different chiropractic techniques and we use many of them in our office. Some of the techniques that we use include Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson Drop, Flexion/Distraction, Activator, Impulse, Advanced Biostructural Correction, Pulstar Fras instrument adjusting, and Y-Axis Traction. We work with our patients to find the best technique to effectively and comfortably treat your problems.
Electrostim therapy is a chiropractic and physiotherapeutic treatment option that involves the use of mild electromagnetic pulses to provide relief for the patient. This treatment option can dull pain, repair tissue, strengthen muscles, and even improve your blood circulation.
Kinesiology Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. Popular in professional and collegiate sports, this technique allows the body’s normal range of motion as well as providing extending soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Kinesio tape is latex-free and hypoallergenic which makes it “skin friendly” for patients with sensitive or fragile skin.
Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.
Myofascial release is a manual therapy used to alleviate pain and restrictions in various types of tissues. The release treatment usually involves the application of gentle or moderate pressure on the connective tissues and leads to relaxation and eventual elongation of the fascia therein. These restrictions are often caused by traumatic accidents or inflammations of the soft tissue, but can also be caused by our daily activities. Our team of licensed massage therapists are trained in a number of various myofascial release techniques.
Physiotherapy is the use of passive and active treatments to decrease pain and to restore function and range of motion in our bodies. A long-standing part of chiropractic care, physiotherapeutic modalities (muscle stim, cryotherapy, kinesiology taping, exercise rehab, etc.) are typically used in conjunction with chiropractic manipulation and lifestyle changes to affect positive change in a patient’s health. Our team of chiropractors are board-certified in physiotherapeutic treatments and utilize them daily when we treat our patients.
Flexion/Distraction therapy is a type of treatment that uses a special table to stretch and manipulate the joints and tissues of the spine. Often those with chronic disc degeneration and spinal stenosis can benefit from gentle manipulative treatment such as flexion/distraction, because of the unique way that it decompresses and stretches the spine and surrounding tissues.
Ultrasound therapy is a chiropractic treatment used to help reduce muscle pain and increase range of motion. By using sound waves, we are able to stimulate deep inside the tissue. This minimizes stiffness, swelling, and pain while also promoting circulation, and pain-free movement.
One of the most important elements of chiropractic care is diagnostics. Chiropractic radiology is a tool utilized in care as a diagnostic practice to rule out pathology (such as possible tumor or fracture) and/or an additional aid to determine where to adjust the spine. Chiropractors rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques in order to fully understand what is occurring in the patient’s musculoskeletal system, and how a given treatment intervention could bring about positive results in each patient.
