How we treat

Hover Box Element

Chiropractic involves adjusting the joints of the spine and extremities. An adjustment puts motion into joints that aren’t moving enough. Joints are surrounded by nerves that make their way to the brain. When these nerves are stimulated by an adjustment they block pain signals going to the brain and cause the brain to release opioids (the same chemical that causes runner’s high). Learn more.

Hover Box Element

Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and is beneficial for headaches, stress, back pain, sports injuries, TMJ syndrome, Bell’s Palsy and a host of other issues. Similar to acupuncture, dry needling is used to resolve pain, decrease muscle tension, and promote healing by eliminating tight bands of muscle tissue called trigger points. Learn more.

Hover Box Element

Many of the aches and pains people experience are due to improper movement habits. Finishing a treatment session with simple functional movements greatly improves the effectiveness of soft tissue work and adjustments. Treatments like chiropractic, myofascial release, and dry needling help “reset” the system while functional movement training “reloads” proper habits. Learn more.

Hover Box Element

Laser therapy works on the cellular level to reduce pain and repair damaged tissue. It is safe, pain-free and effective. Laser therapy can be used to treat a range of conditions including tennis elbow, headaches, fibromyalgia, and more. Learn more.

Hover Box Element

Unlike traditional types of soft tissue work where compression is applied to the skin, cupping involves decompression. This promotes improved blood flow and relaxation to tight and painful areas. Learn more.

Hover Box Element

Recovery from injury faster without losing fitness. By gently unweighting your body by as much as 80% you can run, walk, hop, or shuffle without pain. Learn more.
