Most people believe that chiropractors treat back pain. That is true, but there is so much more that chiropractic care can achieve. Because chiropractors help to remove pressure from the nervous system, they can also influence many other conditions. It is common to hear chiropractic patients say that they came in for back pain and their headaches got better.

Health is a gift that must be cared for. Our role is to help remove obstacles and support the healing process. Injury and Illness come in many forms; physical, emotional, stress, chemical imbalance. Finding the cause is paramount to facilitating health.

Services Include:

  • Specific chiropractic adjustments. Being specific allows us to adjust, evaluate and determine what works best for the patient. Being able to reevaluate and adjust the treatments works best in all our modalities. Chiropractic, Nutrition, Acupuncture, Dry Needling, Shockwave, and Laser therapies.
  • Nutritional analysis and supplement protocols. We use lab tests to look at nutritional imbalances and use interventional nutritional protocols to facilitate healing and optimal health.
  • Acupuncture; We use a Meridian Imaging system that allows us to be methodical in our approach. Acupuncture is a fantastic adjunct to a well-tuned body and facilitates healing on so many levels.
  • Dry Needling is a form of therapy in which thin needles are inserted into the myofascial trigger points (painful knots in muscles) in order to stimulate a healing response and reduce pain and spasms in the musculoskeletal system. (Dry Needling is NOT acupuncture).
