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.
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.
Spinal decompression is a type of therapy applied to the spine that brings patients many benefits. First, we attempt to create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or re-positioning of the herniated or bulging disc material. Secondly, we create a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients as well as other substances into the disc.
Acupuncture / Dry Needling
Acupuncture uses hair-thin needles that are placed in certain spots, known as acupuncture points. It has been practiced for centuries With excellent results. Acupuncture can reduce multiple causes of pain, headaches, and muscle tightness.
Dry needling is a safe and effective technique for patients with musculoskeletal complaints. It is used in the management of trigger points, tight muscles, pain complaints, and more.
Fascial Stretch Therapy
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) improves nerve function, flexibility, and blood flow to your muscles, organs, and surrounding tissues. Fascia is a densely-woven connective tissue that somewhat resembles spider webs. It interpenetrates all of your muscles, nerves, bones, organs, and blood vessels - keeping everything together and facilitating necessary movement.
During FST, we focus on deep, gentle stretches along the fascial lines that interconnect all these systems. It is safe for everyone no matter your level of health or fitness, and benefits can be felt whether you are inactive or are a top athlete.
Electrotherapy is an alternative pain management 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.
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.
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.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Cold laser treatment can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.

We will then do a complete physical examination of your child’s spine. We want to ensure that all areas are working and functioning correctly.
