Modern TREATMENTS + Trusted Techniques
We provide the full spectrum chiropractic care to get our patients back to living their lives. Our patients come from all walks of life: secretaries, skiers, gardeners, dancers, newly expectant mothers and newborns, to name just a few. Common ailments range from sore wrists from repetitious computer work, achy knees from bending, stiff backs from heavy or light lifting, sore joints from playing too hard, and migraines from stress.
We provide the typical chiropractic manual adjusting techniques. If you're familiar we can throw names like Palmer Package, Gonstead, Diversified, Thompson and Activator at you. If you've never been to one of us before, never fear, we'll explain everything really well before we even touch you. If you don't like the "cracking" associated with chiropractic adjustments we offer less aggressive approaches. If you like to hear and feel the "cracking", well, we can do that too.
Active Release Techniques (ART)
This is what sets us apart! You won't get any snap, crackle in and out 3-5 minute treatment here. We start with addressing the soft-tissues first (you know the things that make the joints move like muscle, tendon, ligament and fascia). ART is designed to mobilize soft tissues by breaking up long standing scar tissue and adhesions to allow them to function like normal again. When your muscles move better, guess what? ...so do your joints. This allows adjustments to go more smoothly and last longer. This technique has become exceedingly popular with professional and amateur athletes across the globe. It also works on pretty much everyone else!
Similar to ART, Graston is designed to loosen muscles by breaking up the stuff that tightens muscles up. Instead of using hands, Graston Technique employs the use of stainless steel tools that are beveled to 2 millimeters, which helps to grab ahold of the muscles, ligaments, fascia and tendons. It's not nearly as scary as it sounds and it's extremely effective.
Yet another way to address the soft tissues! Whether the goal is to relax muscles, improve circulation, reduce stress or enhance posture, massage is the perfect companion of chiropractic. They go together like yoga and pilates.

When we get you on the road to feeling better we want to give you the tools to maintain it on your own. We figure if we can show you how to stay out of pain, you'll refer all of your friends and family in as well! Specific exercises will help to maintain and correct posture, strengthen weak spots and loosen tight ones. This will help to keep you out of our office for longer periods of time.
