Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on treatment that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. Doctors of chiropractic use hands-on techniques to treat and prevent disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and extremity joints. Chiropractic care can help with sports-related and non-sports related pain and dysfunction as well as provide symptomatic relief for patients suffering from chronic conditions.
Our chiropractors incorporate the use of the Graston Technique® and the A.R.T. (Active Release Technique®), a non-invasive, highly effective, modern approach to healing. This Graston Technique uses specially designed treatment instruments to improve improper musculoskeletal mechanics, isolate major and minor fibrotic changes and identify potential co-existing conditions.
Our chiropractors also combine joint manipulation with a multitude of other soft-tissue techniques. Our trained specialists evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves in a problem area, and then create a plan to reduce pain while your body heals naturally.
On your request, our chiropractors who are also licensed medical acupuncturists will use acupuncture needles to help alleviate pain and improve blood circulation to encourage the body's natural healing response. Acupuncture is successful in reducing stress, muscle tension and providing pain relief. Some common problems treated with acupuncture include the following:
- Muscle tightness or repetitive strain disorders (from sport or health conditions)
- Muscle or joint pain (such as neck, back, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees)
- Tension headaches
- Degenerative disc disease
Individuals suffering from:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Co-existing medical constraints that involve myofascial tissue, tendons and ligaments, and neural tissue.
- Increased freedom as you regain your range of motion
- Reduced stresses on your body through safe, effective and practical mobility techniques
