CHIROPRACTIC CARE

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractors are extensively trained to assess, diagnose, treat and prevent joint, muscle and nerve conditions. The goal is to eliminate the causes of pain, rather than just treat the symptoms. 
 

Repetitive motions, poor posture, sports activities and falls can lead to pain and dysfunction. Through a thorough assessment, the cause of discomfort is diagnosed and a plan is created.


Individualized treatment plans may include manual adjustments, mobilizations, soft tissue therapy, acupuncture, laser therapy and rehabilitation exercises. The treatment is tailored to improve function and mobility of joints, along with rehabilitative exercises to strengthen and prevent further injury. 

What are the benefits?
Chiropractic offers a natural approach to healing. Benefits include a reduction in pain, improved joint motion, minimization of muscle tension and spasm, improved posture, and enhanced physical function and performance.

MASSAGE
THERAPY

 

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue. The treatment stretches muscles, inhibits muscle spasms, increases the range of motion of the joints and breaks down scar tissue. 

 

Our therapists offer deep tissue massage, prenatal massage for relief of postural pain and stiffness due to pregnancy, and hot stone massage to therapeutically treat trigger points in muscles. 

 

What are the benefits?

Massage can alleviate stress, reduce pain and prevent physical dysfunction. Massage has a positive impact on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems.  


 

MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE

What is Acupuncture?​

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body to alleviate pain and inflammation, reduce pressure on nerves, and encourage tissue healing. 

What are the benefits?
Acupuncture has an immediate effect on the promotion of blood flow, regulation of the nervous system, disruption of pain pathways and the secretion of endorphins. 

 

COMPLETE CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT

Our chiropractors have extensive training in the treatment and rehabilitation of concussion and post-concussion symptoms such as ongoing headaches, balance/dizziness issues, visual disturbances, trouble concentrating, and visual motion sensitivity. 

 

How we help

Research shows that early intervention can significantly improve the recovery of concussion. Following a concussion, a personalized plan of exercise therapy, manual therapy, vestibular rehabilitation, nutritional intervention and education is provided to allow an effective and safe recovery, along with proper return to work, school, or sport.

 

Multimodal baseline testing is a series of physical and cognitive tests that provide an overview of healthy brain function before a concussion injury. These tests are a benchmark to provide the most accurate means to diagnose a concussion and safely return the athlete to the game. Individual athletes or teams can be baseline tested at our clinic to ensure a safe season!

BIOFLEX LASER THERAPY

What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment for soft tissue injury, wound healing, dermatological conditions and musculoskeletal complaints. Laser technology utilizes particles of energy that are selectively absorbed by the cell, resulting in a cascade of reactions. 

 

What are the benefits?

Laser has been shown to eliminate pain, enhance the body’s immune response and facilitate natural healing. Laser can be used as a stand-alone treatment, or as an adjunct to chiropractic or massage.

BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

 

What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is the use of biologically identical hormones for the purposes of hormone replacement therapy. Most commonly, BHRT is used in peri- and post-menopausal women to replace estrogen and progesterone to relieve many symptoms associated with menopause. It is also used to replace thyroid hormone in cases of established Hypothyroidism.

BHRT is available by prescription only. Upon completion of hormone testing for a comprehensive assessment of your current hormone levels, your prescription is individualized and the dosage is determined based on the results of your hormone test. Your hormone levels and prescription dosage is then reassessed periodically to ensure you are in the optimal range. 

What are the benefits?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers safe, fast and effective relief of hormonal symptoms including hot flashes, low libido, vaginal dryness, mood swings, anxiety and mental fog, low mood and mood swings, insomnia, fatigue, and weight gain.
