In our quest to provide the latest developments
in chiropractic health care, our clinic utilizes the most advanced technology, spinal analysis and treatment technique available including the Pro-Adjuster. This new technology has been added to our already successful analysis and treatment programs.
First time pregnant moms, dads whose kids jump on and rough house with them, parents carrying a 20 lb baby in a bulky 10 lb carrier, teenagers in motocross or jujitsu all come to mind when we discuss family wellness. Many parents hold stressful jobs standing or sitting in the same position for hours and kids are constantly striving to run, jump, and be faster. All these activities can stress the body creating untreated problems. We believe that everyone in the family can benefit from having their spine checked and getting regular maintenance care. We check your spine for tight muscles and misalignment that our everyday lives may cause. Regular maintenance care will help to avoid or decrease pain and stiffness and prevent injuries in our late adulthood when it takes longer for our bodies to heal these problems.
Lets face it, America loves sports ! Physical activity is something that should continue to be promoted in both children and adults in our society. Some sports over time however, may cause over-use of certain areas of the spine and accessory joints. This may lead to postural imbalances and possible pain and dysfunction of those areas creating the "opposite effect" of what we want from physical activity. Correction of some postural imbalances as well as regular spine and accessory joint check-ups can be done in our office to reduce or eliminate these types of sports related problems. We also teach and assist patients on how to use both sides of the body equally as well as proper lifting and stretching techniques.

Some injuries and conditions obviously require
a multiple discipline team treatment approach.
These patients require referrals to the proper
specialists (Orthopedic, Neurologist, Physiatrist
– physical medicine specialist and others) for diagnostic opinions and E.M.C. evaluations. We have an expansive network of specialists and MRI facilities to assist in treating our patients
Chiropractors will use x-rays as a way to get a better idea of a patient's condition or injury. Through an x-ray, your doctor will be able to pinpoint the exact place that might be having issues and where your pain emanates.
Lasers have long been used in the world of healthcare and were traditionally known as a surgical precision instrument used to pierce through the skin and cauterize wounds. But with the evolution of cold laser technology, your patients can experience the benefits of laser treatment without the pain and tissue damage typically associated with traditional laser use. Our low-level lasers are designed to operate at a low wavelength and intensity to provide an array of healing benefits.
Diathermy is a therapeutic treatment most commonly prescribed for muscle and joint conditions. It uses a high-frequency electric current to stimulate heat generation within body tissues. The heat can help with various processes, including: increasing blood flow. relieving pain.
One of the most common forms of electrical stimulation used for pain management is transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy, which provides short-term pain relief. Electrical nerve stimulation and electrothermal therapies are used to relieve pain associated with various conditions, including back pain.
Spinal traction is a form of decompression therapy that relieves pressure on the spine. It can be performed manually or mechanically. Spinal traction is used to treat herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back conditions
There are two main types of ultrasound therapy: thermal and mechanical. Both use sound waves generated by a transducer head (which looks a bit like a microphone) to penetrate soft tissues. The difference between the two types of ultrasound therapy is the rate at which the sound waves penetrate the tissues.
Thermal ultrasound therapy. Thermal ultrasound therapy uses a more continuous transmission of sound waves. The sound waves cause microscopic vibrations in the deep tissue molecules, increasing heat and friction. The warming effect encourages healing in the soft tissues by increasing the metabolism at the level of the tissue cells.
Mechanical ultrasound therapy. Mechanical ultrasound therapy uses pulses of sound waves to penetrate tissues. While this still has a minor warming effect on the tissues, it also causes expansion and contraction in the tiny gas bubbles of the soft tissues. This helps to decrease the inflammatory response, reducing tissue swelling and thus decreasing pain.
Compression therapy is designed to improve the signs and symptoms of various conditions by providing graduated compression therapy to help control swelling and discomfort. They are designed to provide support to assist with circulation, and minimize swelling.
Thermography studies are non-invasive imaging techniques that are intended to measure the skin surface temperature distribution of various organs and tissues. Interpretation of the data is thought to contribute to the diagnosis of many disorders including breast cancer, Raynaud's phenomenon, digital artery vasospasm, impaired spermatogenesis in infertile men, deep vein thrombosis, reflex sympathetic dystrophy/complex regional pain syndrome, vertebral subluxation, and others.
Plethysmography, a semiquantitative method of measuring segmental blood flow and velocity in the carotid and peripheral vascular systems.
Range of motion is the measurement of movement around a specific joint or body part. ... A physical therapist can test your range of motion. This may begin with a simple physical exam, but can also include the use of a goniometer – an instrument that tests the angle of joints such as your elbow or knee
Grip and pinch strength testing is the standard method used for decades to determine functional grasp and pinch strength. The tests are used initially and in periodic retests to demonstrate improvement in the strength available to grasp or pinch.
One issue that often arises after an injury is the question of impairment. Impairment is a problem that affects the functioning of a part of the body and makes someone unable to use their body the same way they did before the accident or injury. It can include physical impairments or mental impairments caused by injury or illness. Impairments can be permanent or temporary, severe or mild. Impairments – and the way they are evaluated – can affect a person’s ability to perform their work and can therefore have a big impact on benefits, compensation and any claims.
