Kinesiology Taping - Many athletes believe kinesiology taping has medical benefits. The tape was invented by Japanese chiropractor Kenzo Kase in the 1970s.  It is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body's range of motion. It is also said to promote healing, reduce pain and inflammation and relax overused muscles.  We believe healthy skeletal muscles are essential to keeping you moving at your best. A strained or injured muscle or tendon can make you feel slower or weaker than normal, so if you're experiencing a strained or injured muscle or tendon we will treat and help protect your muscles, tendons and joints by taping them while they heal.

Nutritional Counseling - Studies show poor diet and nutritional imbalances contribute to a number of serious illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer. Chiropractors are specifically trained in diet and nutritional counseling. We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to help our patients maintain good health and minimize the risk of developing serious health conditions. Chiropractors incorporate nutritional counseling that goes beyond eating a balanced diet.

Natural Pain Relief - Chiropractic care is all natural and involves manipulation of the body and spine to reduce pain and inflammation.  There is no medication given.  Chiropractors address the cause of your symptom(s) and fix it naturally.  By treating the problem at the source,  chiropractics will give long-lasting or permanent relief.   Today we're inundated by commercials and media recommending medication for pain relief.  Medication(s) merely mask the pain, but doesn't treat the symptoms of the pain.  Many medications have negative effects where takers can suffer from an upset stomach, drowsiness, nausea, and many other dangers.  Today there's fear of becoming addicted to pain medications and abuse of painkillers are on the rise.  Medication doesn't take into consideration that no two people are alike, no two people will have the exact same injury nor will their cause of pain be identical.  Chiropractic care is individualized and completely unique to you and is safe for people of any age. The old, young, and even pregnant and nursing women can and should seek relief through this natural form of healthcare.

Wellness Care - Health and Wellness is a balance of mind, body and spirit.  Your health affects everything that you do and everyone you know.  It is healtheir and cheaper to invest a small amount in prevention instead of waiting for a health problem to get more serious which will be far more expensive.  

Chiropractic Adjustments - Also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain.  Usually chiropractic adjustments are the central part of chiropractic treatment.  The adjustment is a therapeutic manipulation that uses a high velocity, short lever arm thrust, with controlled force, direction, amplitude, and velocity applied to a vertebra or specific joint.  Your chiropractor will most often make these adjustments to the spine, but he or she might adjust other joints, such as the ankle, knee, wrist, elbow or shoulder in order to restore structural alignment or to improve joint function.  The objective of chiropractic treatment is to increase range of motion, reduce nerve irritability and improve function.  Adjustments are often accompanied by non-manual therapies such as application of heat or ice, orthotic supports for your shoes, rehabilitative exercise, counseling about diet, weight loss, and other lifestyle factors, and nutritional supplements.

Spinal Decompression - Spinal Decompression Therapy is a nonsurgical therapy (as opposed to surgical spinal decompression, such as laminectomy and microdiscectomy) that involves stretching the spine using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving low back, neck and/or radiating arm and leg pain. Spinal Decompression is gentle and comfortable and an effective treatment for:


  • Herniated or Bulging Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Post-Surgical Patients
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Spinal Stenosis


Posture Analysis - A posture analysis is part of a wellness care check.  The purpose of using posture analysis gives your doctor a visual clue to where your body is most in need of chiropractic adjustment and spinal misalignments and to see how your neck, spine, head, pelvis, knees and ankles are aligned. When you’re standing tall, your spine should be straight and level. However, when your spine is misaligned, there can be visual clues such as one shoulder being lower than the other or hips that are not the same height on your body that hint at a spinal misalignment.  Good posture is important.  Your spine and back muscles become more stressed, breathing and movement can be hindered when your posture deviates from what is correct. Good posture means your vital organs are in the right position and can function optimally and bones are properly aligned and your muscles, joints and ligaments can work as intended.  Good posture helps contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.  A good way to check your posture and to understand  what good posture is, try the wall posture exercise. Rest your back against a flat wall and bring your heels, shoulders and head backwards until they touch the wall. Sensing how this feels, step away from the wall and try to maintain that position for as long as possible throughout the day.
