We offer a variety of different treatment options. Every patient is unique and custom treatments are tailored for you diagnosis and specific needs.
We often use a pain scale to determine the type of care needed.
A pain scale is defined as 0-10/10 with 0 being no pain and 10 being the worse pain imaginable.
A pain level of 0-3 is best treated by the 10 minute visit.
A pain scale of 3-5 is best treated by the 20 minute visit.
A pain scale of 5-7 is best treated by the 30 minute visit.
A pain scale of 7-10 is best treated by the 45 minute visit.

An audible pop often occurs with this treatment. Chiropractors are experts at manipulation.
Manual therapy could be a number of different approaches which are all aimed and improving soft tissue mobility and function. In our office this could be myofascial release, cupping, or IASTM (scraping).
Strengthening exercises are the key to long term relief and injury prevention. We strive to have all of our patients involved in a home exercise program and regular independent exercise.
Acupuncture needles are used to calm muscles, reduce trigger point formation, and improve recovery. This is sometimes accompanied by electrical stimulation.
