ChiropracticChiropractic medicine corrects and restores joint mobility through manual therapy. Patient comfort is our priority and we use a variety of gentle chiropractic adjustments to alleviate pain and muscle spasms.
Massage TherapyWe directly address painful sprains/strains, trigger points, and myofascial adhesions with massage techniques.
AcupunctureAcupuncture is the practice of inserting very thin pre-sterilized needles into the skin at specific meridian points. This treatment is very useful for a variety of conditions including weight loss, smoking addiction, pain, headaches & migraines, stress relief, fatigue, and infertility.
Fascial Movement TapingRocktape is a kinesiology tape that is used for treating common sports injuries. Rocktape works by promoting blood flow and decreasing inflammation, thus healing injuries quicker. More importantly, Rocktape aids in pain mitigation by changing the way your body interprets pain signals. Common conditions we use Rocktape for include pregnancy related pains, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, back pain, and knee and shoulder complaints.
McKenzie MethodThe McKenzie method—also known as MDT (Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy)—is a treatment plan for spinal ailments such as low back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, radiating leg, arm pain/numbness, and sciatica. Using this protocol we educate our patients on proper posture and ergonomics and provide a personalized exercise plan.
Functional RehabilitationMovement assessment is the key to beginning any type of treatment plan. Functional rehabilitation is used to assess movement patterns and then create a treatment plan to stabilize and strengthen areas of weakness.
Food Sensitivity ScreeningWhat you eat plays a major role in preventing a wide range of degenerative diseases and premature aging. Exposure to common foods, additives, colorings, or molds may trigger increased activation of the immune system causing chronic inflammation. The ALCAT (Antigen Leukocyte Cellular Antibody Test) is a simple blood test that identifies food allergies. Based on the results we can create a personalized rotation diet incorporating “safe” foods.
