Spinal Decompression Therapy is a leading non-surgical alternative for disc related syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine.

Active Release Technique® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue movement technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with treatment.
The Graston® Technique incorporates a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function. The chiropractor uses the stainless steel instruments to comb over and "catch" on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies the areas of restriction. Once the tissue has been identified, the instruments are used to break up the scar tissue.
The Kinesio® Taping Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles, and support muscles in movement on a 24-hour-a-day basis. The taping is non-restrictive and allows for full range of motion. In contrast, more traditional sports tape is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during an athletic event. Kinesio® Tape is used to treat anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between.
Game Ready® is the leader in active compression and cold therapy technology for injury treatment and post-operative recovery. This machine uses NASA technology to create the first-ever sports medicine and post-op recovery device that simultaneously delivers active cold compression. Game Ready has become the injury treatment system of choice for thousands of prominent athletic trainers, therapy centers, athletes and teams in nearly every professional sport – including the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and NHL.

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles at specific points on the body to stimulate movement of energy, to allow healing. The earliest written record of acupuncture dates back all the way to about 200 BC!
Acupuncture works on many levels; it helps balance emotions, calm and settle the spirit, reduce stress and anxiety, cleanse toxins, alleviate pain and restore health, bringing mind and body into a more balanced and harmonious state. Acupuncture is also used as preventative medicine to strengthen immunity and support overall health. It is effective for a wide range of symptoms.
Our doctors and therapists focus their practice toward treatment of the whole person. Certainly, crisis intervention for your neck, back and the management of pain are priorities. Our first goal is to restore your body’s proper movement and muscle balance. Next, we work with you to help maintain good health and wellness throughout your life.
