· CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS/ MANIPULATION- The treatments of choice to correct subluxations (misalignments) and fixations (reduced joint motion) of the spine which may cause "pinched", irritated, or inflamed nerves. Symptoms are acute or chronic pain with irregular early wearing out of joints called arthritis. Back to Top           

· ACUPUNCTURE-The acupuncture procedure consists of the insertion of flexible, solid, extremely fine needles through the skin into energy points along the body's meridians. This promotes harmony in the flow of bodily qi (life force or vital energy). The safety of acupuncture is assured by the use of sterile needles, which are disposed of after every treatment.

· GRASTON TECHNIQUE-Named after its creator, the Graston Technique is a method of instrument assisted soft tissue repair. It is used to effectively treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal muscle function. The patented instruments allow practitioners to more easily detect and treat scar tissue or soft tissue adhesions more quickly and comfortably than in the past. Back to Top

· TRIGGER POINT THERAPY-Trigger point therapy's primary focus is the elimination of myofascial pain syndrome caused by hyper irritable areas in muscles. The doctor applies direct pressure, or ischemic compression to the effected muscle and the trigger point contained therein, breaking down the toxins. Back to Top

· FOOT ORTHOTICS -We custom cast shoe inserts to correct foot, knee, and pelvic misalignment. This can be very beneficial for athletes as well as correction and prevention of plantar fascitis, calluses, and bunions. Back to Top

These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. This enhances the treatment process and helps maintain healing benefits, as well as reducing the likelihood of future problems.
