Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is an excellent, effective method of treating and managing all different kinds of conditions. Specifically, we focus on the musculoskeletal system (the bones in your body), but people often want to jump straight to conventional medicine thinking that’s the easy route.

Chiropractic is entirely natural, noninvasive and a safe way of treating the body. It’s fantastic for your joints and your spinal health, and can prevent many different problems: degenerative issues, headaches, back pain, hip pain and so much more.

The Importance of Regular Care

Our goal is to help you see real results through chiropractic.

We believe that chiropractic should be done on a regular basis to make sure the range of motion is good in all different parts of your spine. If you are an athlete, injury prevention is important. Chiropractic can also help your joints function properly, which can keep you from getting injured.

Through wear and tear and lifestyle change or working posture, things start to tighten up if you continue to aggravate them. After experiencing the positive effects of chiropractic, patients will have the body awareness to know when it’s time to come in for care.

People who come in as patients and get adjusted for the first time will get off the table and be amazed that they can turn their neck that far or that they can bend forward without pain. The reason they keep coming back is because once they’ve been treated, they know what they can achieve. We also believe in adding strength training and core work to keep treatment lasting as long as possible.

Our Techniques and Approaches

  • Active Release® Technique
  • Diversified
  • Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)

Functional Movement Screening (FMS) Functional Movement Screening (FMS), developed by an athletic trainer, is an important part of how we diagnose. With FMS, we can watch people perform in different directions and movement patterns to be able to not only understand what the injury is but why it occurred in the first place. FMS allows us to help prevent conditions from becoming chronic, recurrent problems.

Is Chiropractic Uncomfortable?

Unless a patient is in acute pain, a chiropractic adjustment shouldn’t be uncomfortable. It’s often a fast motion that could be a position they’ve never laid in before. We encourage our patients to relax and let them know it will be quick. We use low-impact movements to be able to move the joint properly.

Approach to Patient Education

We always educate patients on their particular condition. If you understand the anatomy of why and what tissues are injured, then it’s easy to explain things like why you shouldn’t be sitting for prolonged periods or why you should do the exercises that we show you. Our goal is to treat people, stabilize them and get their pain level down to zero.

New patient appointments last 45 minutes. Chiropractic visits take 15 minutes and prehab visits are 30 minutes.
