Through an array of advanced techniques and therapies, we're here to assist you in reaching your peak physical potential and enjoying a pain-free lifestyle.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure, function, and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of the body and health. Chiropractors emphasize to their patients the value of nutrition, exercise, mental health, and physical health.

Treatment Focus Beyond Spinal but not Limited to:

  • Sports Injuries
  • Bulging or Herniated Discs
  • Back or Neck Pain
  • Headaches or Migraines
  • Shoulder, Elbow or Ankle pain/dysfunction
  • Musculoskeletal Dysfunction
  • Poor posture/Ergonomics
  • Stiff joints, Degeneration/Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • General Wellness

Massage Therapy

Using a wide variety of massage therapy techniques, we strive to suit the individual needs of every client. First, we conduct an assessment of your physical limitations. Then, we develop a plan that’s designed to suit your needs exactly.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a soft tissue manipulation that balances the body’s central nervous system with the musculoskeletal / myofascial system. NMT is based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system initiates and maintains pain.
Our therapists are highly skilled in muscle anatomy, connective tissue work, trigger point therapy and manual therapy. The goal of neuromuscular therapy is to reduce pain, discomfort and stress in the body by using precise manual techniques that maintain relaxed and lengthened muscles.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Muscles, tendons, and ligaments often suffer from strains, sprains, or tears. Soft tissue therapy uses specialized techniques to treat these injuries, reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and accelerating healing.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve neck and back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This takes pressure off the neck or back disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. With this treatment, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

Conditions Treated but not Limited to:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Cervical and Lumbar Radiculopathy

Knee Pain & Decompression Therapy

Knee pain can seriously hinder mobility. Our dedicated knee therapies address various issues ranging from post-surgical rehabilitation to chronic knee problems. Knee decompression targets pain by reducing pressure within the knee joint, promoting optimal function and relief.

Compression Therapy

Compression therapy enhances blood flow by using controlled pressure on the limbs, accelerating recovery from workouts or injuries. It's especially beneficial for athletes or those suffering from circulatory issues.

Infrared Light Therapy

Class IV Laser Therapy and Infrared Light Therapy is an FDA-approved painless and noninvasive treatment for soft tissue injury. Laser therapy uses a laser device that produces red and near-infrared light at different wavelengths that penetrates deep tissues to trigger a chain of reactions that relieve pain and promote healing. Different wavelengths stimulate different responses. The laser beams stimulate the mitochondria in the tissues to produce more energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The increased energy increases blood flow and cell activity which stimulates tissue repair and growth, allowing injuries to heal as quickly as possible. At different laser frequencies, the Class IV laser stimulates a different physiological reaction.

Impairments Treated but not Limited to:

  • Back, Neck, Knee and Joint pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Fractures
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)
  • Nerve damage
  • Post-surgery recovery
  • Osteoarthritis

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future. Physiotherapy is looking at the body as a whole, rather than just focusing on the individual aspects of an injury or illness.

Our approach is to educate and advise movement, tailored exercise and physical activity as well as manual therapy.

Functional Therapy

Our goal it to improve overall function and performance.
No more isolated focus on injuries that seem to never get better. We use the 5pt RPM functional analysis to analyze and identify dysfunction. We use various tools such as the Hypervolt, cupping, Graston, Electrical Stimulation, Heat, ultrasound, laser and our Game Ready system to eliminate dysfunction, improve movement through corrective mechanisms designed to reduce stress/causation of the injury.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is used for pain and movement issues associated with myofascial trigger points. The needles stimulate your muscles, which causes them to contract or twitch. This helps relieve pain and improve your range of motion. It’s almost always used as part of a larger pain management plan that could include exercise, stretching, massage and other techniques. The practitioner uses needles to alleviate your trigger points. When dry needling is applied to your muscles and tissues, it can decrease tightness, increase blood flow and reduce local and referred pain. Practitioners use solid needles that don’t contain any kind of medication. This is why the technique is called “dry.” Nothing is injected into your body.

Conditions Treated but not Limited to:

  • Joint and Disk issues
  • Tendinitis
  • Migraine and tension-type headaches
  • Jaw and mouth problems, such as  (TMJ) disorders.
  • Whiplash Repetitive motion disorders carpal tunnel
  • Spinal issues
  • Pelvic pain
  • Night cramps

Myofascial Release Therapy

The fascia, a thin layer of connective tissue, covers all our muscles and organs. Pain and mobility issues can arise when it tightens or suffers from adhesions. Myofascial release therapy relaxes this connective tissue, ensuring optimal muscle function and pain relief.

Cryotherapy

Our goal it to improve overall function and performance with local cryotherapy. Cryotherapy is a healing tool where the body is exposed to extremely reduced temperatures. It has been recognized and proved to be highly beneficial to the sports person and the everyday person. Cryotherapy aids in performance and muscle strength, reducing recovery time from injuries, inflammation reduction and much more.
