Move better with chiropractic care from our Chiropractic physicians, specializing in sports medicine. Chiropractic sports medicine uses non-invasive techniques such as joint adjustments, soft tissue (muscles and fascia) therapies, and other strategies to provide pain relief and help you recover from injuries. In addition to in-office care, our Chiropractors prescribe home exercises designed to improve stability, strength, and mobility to facilitate long-term success and injury prevention. Chiropractic care goes beyond the spine, treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal ailments throughout the body, as well as providing preventive care for active individuals wanting to stay active!

What is manipulation?
A manipulation (also known as an adjustment) is a high velocity, low amplitude thrust applied to a specific joint in order to provide a therapeutic result. Our chiropractors take great care to use a gentle approach when performing manipulations, via tools such as an activator and drop table.
Does the manipulation hurt?
The manipulation can sometimes cause a little bit of soreness afterwards, as your body adjusts. This is similar to soreness you may feel after a massage. Most of the discomfort will go away after the manipulation is performed several times. Discomfort is often related to how long you waited before you sought treatment for your pain or illness. The sooner we can start the manipulations after onset, the less discomfort you will feel and the fewer treatments you will need for your continued good health.
I’ve been to a chiropractor before and it didn’t work, can you still help me?
Whether you’ve tried chiropractic, physical therapy, massage or acupuncture before don’t let that discourage you. Not all providers approach healing the same. Allow our providers to take you through a thorough history and examination so he can better help you understand your body and your road to recovery.
I was recently injured, is it too soon to receive treatment?
It’s never too soon to seek care. Our providers would rather see you for your injury sooner to help educate you on the things to do and to avoid. All too often people get injured and patiently wait to get better. However, what they do not realize is they may be doing things on a daily basis that slow or halt the healing process. This is how seemingly simple injuries can last months rather than weeks.
I’m afraid of getting adjusted, can you still help?
Yes! Our providers specialize in utilizing different techniques to help you feel better and move better. One of the main techniques is myofascial release, this involves moving body parts with specific pressure on pressure points to release pain and restore range of motion similar to an adjustment.
I got injured during a car accident, can I see you for these injuries?
Yes! Our providers do well with injuries like these due to their well rounded background in soft tissue treatment and rehabilitation. Don’t let the stress of an unfortunate incident keep you from getting your life back from before the collision. While a motor vehicle collision may require more paperwork, don’t let that discourage you from seeking the care you need.
Do you work with pregnant or post-partum patients?
Yes! Pain and loss of daily function does not have to be a normal part of pregnancy for you. Post-partum care for the mother typically starts at 4 to 6 weeks after birth.
Do you treat children and kids?
Yes! The youngest little movers and groovers our providers typically treat are 5 to 6 years old.
