" HEALTHCARE THAT CARES. "
LIFE HAS A WAY OF THROWING PAIN AT US...FROM ACCIDENTS TO SPORTS INJURIES, TO EVERYDAY CUBICLE WEAR AND TEAR.
In the push and pull of today's crowded atmosphere, we often carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. Your body doesn't always tell you what it needs
in a language you can understand.
Aches and pains can range in cause. Sometimes they can be indicative of larger issues. Other times it could be that your body simply wants some much-needed stress relief.
I believe pain has three main components:
Structural, Biochemical and Psychosomatic and work with professionals in each field to tailor treatment.
Chiropractic care will work with you to target the root of your pain and get you back to your best. You'll feel the difference throughout your body and your day.

(Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization)
a manual therapy treatment technique that utilizes specially designed stainless steel
instruments to assist in detecting and treating areas exhibiting scar tissue, soft tissue restriction, adhesions or chronic inflamation.
a soft tissue therapy that encourages healing by creating a negative pressure or suction on the skin using plastic or glass cups that pull up underlying tissues, blood, and other fluids close to the surface of the skin.
gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and to treat pain. Kinesiotaping is a technique based on the body's own natural healing process. Kinesiotaping is also thought to support healing by slightly lifting skin away from sore or injured tissues, improving blood flow and lymphatic drainage, and that it supports injured joints and muscles without impeding their range of motion.
a movement based muscle lengthening technique that is highly effective at treating problems with muscle, tendon, ligament and fascia. Tissues that are abnormal with regard to texture, tightness, movement, and function are treated with stretching and sliding force, which are intended to increase movement of the tissues by removing or breaking up adhesions.

WHAT DISORDERS DO CHIROPRACTORS TREAT?
Chiropractors diagnose and treat many different spinal disorders that cause musculoskeletal or nerve pain. Similar to other types of doctors, a chiropractor performs a physical and neurological examination as part of his or her process of making an accurate diagnosis. X-rays or CT scan studies may be ordered to confirm your diagnosis. This article highlights several spine-related problems that may be evaluated and treated by chiropractic care.
Back sprains and strains, otherwise known as mechanical back pain are experienced by approximately three out of four adults. Sprains are caused when ligaments—the tough bands of tissue that hold bones together—become overstretched or torn. Strains involve a muscle and/or a tendon. Either one can occur when you lift too much weight, play a strenuous sport, or even bend or twist improperly during regular activities during the day. The pain may be aching, burning, stabbing, tingling, sharp, or dull.
