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.
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.
It is important to understand that often times where the pain presents is not the area that needs to be treated. The pain may be due to that area compensating and being over-worked from another area not pulling its weight. Our rehabilitation program includes strength, flexibility and agility training as well as training focused on coordination of body parts and motion to prepare the individual to return to full participation.
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.

Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.
The first thing that we will do when you see us is take a thorough history of your child’s health. You are able to explain to us any complaints that you or your child may have. 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.

Ultrasound therapy is the use of high frequency sound waves to deliver deep heat to the treated tissues. The goal is to speed up the healing of a joint, muscle or tendon by using this higher frequency ultrasound. Ultrasound therapy may be used alone or in conjunction with stretching, therapeutic massage, heat or chiropractic adjustment. This therapy can be useful for a variety of patient’s complaints. The ultrasound creates a painless, micro-massage that many patients find relaxing.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
This is an innovative, evidence-based form of therapy that utilizes an instrument to assist in soft tissue mobilization. This enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. This technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The use of instruments along with therapeutic exercises helps restore pain-free movement and function. This technique was originally developed by athletes to treat soft tissue injuries. It has grown in popularity as an alternative approach in treating acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.
Traction Therapy can be used for a wide range of situations, such as pinched nerves, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, herniated discs and so on. Moreover, Individual Traction Therapy can be used to help your body’s ability to heal itself. It’s also the best method you can use to straighten your spine too. Some people are also using it to treat fractures. This situation does come down to the doctor and their recommendation.
