Our Approach to Care

Unlike practices that rely on forceful techniques, we prioritize patient comfort and long-term wellness. With a focus on disc-related issues, we minimize the use of side posture techniques that can stress the spine’s discs. Our commitment to your well-being extends beyond adjustments; we employ adjusting instruments and specialized tables to reduce inflammation and ensure precision in our care. We also offer an advanced, scientifically sound approach to Functional Medicine, utilizing state of the art testing, nutritional guidance and supplementation to address the root causes of perplexing health concerns.

Innovative Therapies for Faster Pain Relief

At our practice, we understand the urgency of pain relief. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we utilize cutting-edge therapies such as whole-body cryotherapy and PEMF therapy to address inflammation and expedite the healing process. Many patients express surprise at our care’s gentle yet effective nature, especially if they’ve previously visited other chiropractors.

Once I go to a chiropractor, will I always have to go?

Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?

Chiropractic adjustments are generally not painful. Some patients may experience mild discomfort, but it usually subsides quickly. Our chiropractors use techniques tailored to each patient’s comfort level.

Can chiropractic cure everything?

No, chiropractic care is not a cure-all. It is an effective treatment for musculoskeletal issues and can improve overall wellness, but it should be part of a comprehensive healthcare plan. Combining chiropractic with our functional medicine approach utilizing other services and blood testing can help get to the root cause of many issues patients face.
