Services we offer

The services we offer are carefully chosen to be complementary to the spinal alignment, for diagnostic usefulness and benefiting you.  Based upon these criterion, we confidently offer the following services in addition to all aspects of spinal care and alignment. 

Upper Cervical Chiropractic

Do you dislike snapping, cracking, and popping? These alignments provide gentle, highly effective chiropractic care  without any of the twisting and popping generally associated with chiropractic care. The adjustment realigns the spine to take the tension of the are of concern so the body can recover.  This is a process comparable to the process that got you to where you are at today.  It take time to reverse this and retain the body to prevent it in the future. Profound effects happen when tension is removed from the spine and the body is allowed to function and heal as it was designed.  

 

There are only a couple doctors in the state that offer this type of chiropractic care where 11 points of posture are analysed to determine spinal misalignment.  Make an appointment today to experience it for yourself.  

 

Still unsure?  Consultations are always free.  We would love to discuss whether Upper Cervical Chiropractic is right for you.

Muscle Work

This is crazy important.  Many times the upper cervical treatment will relax the muscles and get you out of pain.  Sometimes the muscles will have to be manually encouraged to do the right thing.  This can be done right after the treatment in just a few minutes to specifically address aches and pains you have.   

 

Just for a mental picture- nerve controls muscle which in turn positions the bone.  The upper cervical treatment causes the nervous system to reposition the bone so the muscle doesn't have to work so hard. 

 

Nutrition Response Testing

We are dedicated to improving an individuals quality of life and believe that the body is much more than just a spine. Other factors besides spinal health contribute to well being.  As part of our holistic approach to wellness we offer nutritional care in the form of nutrition response testing (NRT).  

NRT is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. This is accomplished by a very precise and scientific 13-Step Nutrition Response Testing muscle testing procedure.  When these organ/areas are identified and then corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.

Nutritional imbalances will affect to body's ability to maintain alignment.  Therefore, we offer nutritional  support to complement the postural/spinal correction.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio tape is applied along soft tissue providing an external support that facilitates recovery from injuries.  It works by  allowing muscles to relax while generating proprioceptive neuromuscular feedback that creates stronger firing of muscles and tendons.

 

Kinesio tape provides relief for up to 5 days through sweat, training and showers.  It is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and can be used for relief of numerous common injuries such as shoulder pain, knee pain, shin splints, tennis elbow, achilles heel and plantar fasciitis.

Massage Therapy

Therapeutic massage, massage for relaxation, lymph clearing and more.  Even though there isn't a massage therapist on site it  can be a great adjunct to chiropractic care.  It;s recommend not having a massage or other body work two days before/after your appointment.  This ensures maximum effectiveness of the spinal alignment.
