Natural way to treat pain and improve your overall health.
Massage and Chiropractic
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to neck and back pain, joints pain, and headaches. Treatment of neck and back pain with the use of manipulation and/or soft tissue techniques.
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic care is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury.
Chiropractic and Massage Therapy
Chiropractic manipulations often lead to an immediate increase in range and quality of motion, as well as a decrease in pain. Massage therapy has also been shown to be an effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain. The combination of chiropractic and massage therapy is a very powerful tool in the treatment of many different types of conditions.

We believe that the combination of these two modalities is the most effective way to treat many different types of conditions.
One of the most common conditions that we treat is heel pain. Heel pain is often caused by a condition called plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a condition that causes the plantar fascia, which is the tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, to become inflamed. This can be a very painful condition, and it is often worse in the morning when you first get out of bed.

We will work with you to create a custom treatment plan that is designed to reduce the inflammation and pain that you are experiencing.

We Look At The Whole Picture
Like other healthcare providers, we follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient. We consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and may request laboratory analysis and/or x-rays. Unlike other healthcare providers, however, chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient’s structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We also ask you about your life— Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work? And so on.
We Seek The Origin of The Problem
Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms. If your roof is leaking, do you simply catch the drips in a bucket for years on end, or do you repair the roof to prevent it from leaking? Similarly, if the migraine headache you’ve had all week is being caused by a misaligned vertebra and an irritated nerve, do you continue to take painkillers indefinitely, or do you realign the vertebra to prevent the pain? You get the picture.
We Fix The Origin of The Problem
Chiropractors have a term for misalignments: subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. It’s a leak in the roof. Or a kink in the wiring of your nervous system. The severity of the subluxation can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors that can be physical, emotional, mental, or chemical. The subluxation can be caused by any number of incidents, from birth trauma to an auto accident to simple repetition or over-use.
What’s the main difference between wellness care and standard medical care? Wellness care seeks to turn on the natural healing ability, not by adding something to the system, but by removing anything that might interfere with normal function, trusting that the body would know what to do if nothing were interfering with it. Standard medical care, on the other hand, seeks to treat a symptom by adding something from the outside – a medication, a surgery, or a procedure. Call us today for more details!
