We offer diversified adjusting chiropractic techniques that incorporate many different styles and adjusting tools to ensure our patients get the best adjustment possible.
During a standard visit a patient will be stretched and receive manual therapy where we incorporate muscle activation. Our patients always receive education on easy-to-follow at-home recipes for their success, including education on sitting and lifting, as well has things like proper squatting techniques.
We will thoroughly review any previous home exercise routines used and ensure that the patient leaves our office knowing that every move they’re performing is appropriate for them and done correctly and carefully by them.
We understand that no two patients are alike and create specific plans for each individual patient, concentrating on the proper alignment and positioning of the muscles and bones.
While our clientele differs greatly, many of our patients see us during their training cycle for athletic milestones such as the Ironman Triathlon or a marathon. We offer these athletes routine chiropractic care that will keep their body structure healthy and balanced, which not only ensures that they make it to the finish line, but also contributes to enhanced performance.
When a patient is hurt due to injury or accident getting their strength back quickly is incredibly important to their everyday life. Many times, a loss in fine motor skills means loss of work, exercise, physical training, family life, etc., so teaching the body how to reuse the injured muscles is critical.
With a well-versed medical staff, our physical rehabilitation services will help our patients get back to their regular lives properly and efficiently through a functional approach to their injuries.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is form of rehabilitation that works to stimulate your movement control systems in the brain.
In the early stages of life, our nervous system creates programs that control our posture, our movement, our gait, and all our motor control function. We will incorporate dynamic neural stabilization techniques which emphasizes neural development aspects of motor control, allowing us to assess and restore dysfunction of the locomotive system- essentially reteaching your body how to move and function as it is meant to.
Running and gait analysis
A runner’s body can easily get out of alignment and joint pain is often the side effect of that. Our running and gait analysis will allow the patient to get back to running quickly while preventing future injuries.
Using a slow-motion camera along with a physical exam to discover the underlying causes of the patient's pain, we will help transform the patient’s running style, giving the patient a distinct advantage of improving their outcomes and hindering any future injuries.

Soft tissue massage / Myofascial Release
There are many ailments that massage can help put to rest: headaches, insomnia, soreness, stress- to name just a few.
Providing instrument-assisted soft tissue massage allows the body to rid itself of muscle tension and stress and serves to work with the body’s natural healing process and balance.
Extremities and limbs
Many patients experience discomfort due to pressure put on their bodies through excessive and continuous use. Our wrists and ankles, knees and elbows, legs and arms, shoulders and hips are used daily even when we’re unaware that we’re using them.
This can cause stress to the body parts we use most and if not properly cared for, long-lasting issues can arise. We know how to help with pain management and how to find the problems that are causing the pain.
Working hand-in-hand with chiropractic care, our physical therapy services are varied by patient. Our goal is to help the body regain its natural strength and motion, providing balance using techniques that minimize pain and discomfort in the joints and muscles.
