About Chiropractic

December 5th, 2017

Chiropractic involves adjusting the joints of the spine and extremities.   Adjustments improve motion and neurologic function.



  • Chiropractic seeks to treat the root cause of your complaint, not just put a bandage on the symptoms. This ensures lasting results.
  • Chiropractic is a safe, evidence-based treatment option for back pain, headaches, neck pain, and more!
  • Dr. Sankey and Dr. Ratliff combine chiropractic care with dry needling, functional movement training, acupuncture, laser therapy, and myofascial release to provide relief from a wide range of complaints.
  • Lower cost and great satisfaction. ¬†“Spinal, hip, and shoulder pain patients had clinically similar pain relief, greater satisfaction levels, and lower overall cost if they initiated care with [chiropractors].” ¬†Source



We are different from your typical chiropractor.  Your first visit with us is focused on finding an accurate diagnosis and a root cause of that diagnosis.  At TruMotion we combine chiropractic care with dry needling, laser therapy, myofascial release, and movement to provide lasting relief from pain.



“The bones in my back are out of place, and I need to get re-aligned.”¬†
Joints are supposed to move and be exposed to various positions. ¬†The bones in your spine will never be perfectly aligned, because your spine is dynamic. ¬†Sometimes those joints are not moving enough, and that is where chiropractic adjustments come to play. ¬†It’s like putting grease on a stuck door hinge

“Chiropractic is dangerous.”
Chiropractic is one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive therapies for neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Soreness following an adjustment happens occasionally but is not long lasting.  Serious complications are extremely rare and can usually be avoided by a thorough consultation and exam.   At TruMotion Therapy, Dr. Sankey spends an hour with each new patient to ensure that person is a good fit for chiropractic care. Each treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each patient.

“I’m going to get put on a long treatment plan.”
Our goal is to get you out of pain and give you the tools you need to remain that way.  As much as we love to see your smiling face everyday, we like to get you better and on your way as quickly as possible. That being said, health is a process.  It takes time and commitment to achieve.  From the moment you walk in the door for the first time, we are a team working together! Once out of pain and moving properly, many patients chose to come in for occasional tune-ups.  We love that kind of motivation!
