Services Offered 

Chiropractic

Patients presenting for Chiropractic care will fill out an intake form, and then will have a initial assessment by the Chiropractor. This will include a comprehensive history and physical examination. Our doctors utilize range of motion, orthopedic and neurological examinations as well as palpation of tissues to help diagnose your complaint. If you require imaging studies such as X-ray, MRI or CT, we will  communicate with your family doctor so you get the studies you need. We believe health care is a team approach, and your family chiropractor is just one member of that team. We appreciate the relationship we have with the family doctors in the area and together we can help you realize your health goals. We strongly encourage active care in our clinic, and if home exercise is right for you, we will lay out appropriate exercises to help you get better and stay better.

Spinal Decompression/Traction

We utilized spinal decompression for our cervical and lumbar disc patients. This therapy unloads the disc and decrease pain and symptoms in the arms or legs, allowing people to function in less pain and therefore be less reliant on their pain medication. We combine this therapy qutie freqently with laser therapy and chiropractic adjustments to speed the healing process. Exercise therapy at home is an important part of any disc protocol and you will be taught appropriate exercises to do at home which will help with pain management.
