Comprehensive Treatment Options
Even though we specialize in chiropractics, our staff is fully enabled to help you with specific cases of:
Some injuries – like burns, bruises and cuts – are easy to spot. Others, however, may only be detected during an examination by a doctor of chiropractic. Many of these “hidden injuries” stem form automobile accidents. And although elusive, these injuries are far from minor. Immediate diagnosis of auto-related injuries like whiplash, hairline fracture, and misaligned spinal bones is critical. No matter if the accident is a high speed impact or slow moving tap, injury can occur. These injuries if not treated lead to chronic, long-term problems and conditions. Because so many factors come into play, schedule an immediate appointment after any auto accident, no matter how minor. Remember you have the right to choose your own health-care professionals. Don’t be pressured into interventions without first requesting a second opinion from a doctor of chiropractic.
Chiropractic is a complementary and alternative medicine health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractors emphasize manual and manipulative therapy for the treatment of vertebral subluxations. Currently, chiropractors practice in over 100 countries in all regions of the world, however chiropractors are most prevalent in North America, Australia and parts of Europe. Most people who seek chiropractic care do so for neck pain, low back pain, headaches, or soft-tissue related injuries.
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic 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. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.
In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate. Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
We pride ourselves on offering the most advanced therapies to our patient’s in order to promote health. Deep tissue laser therapy is an advanced technology centered on improving your body’s ability to heal itself. The red laser light promotes cellular activity and is a non-invasive way to decrease inflammation and pain related to acute and chronic conditions. Some of the many conditions that can be treated with laser are soft tissue injuries, sprains and strains of ligaments or tendons, arthritic pain in joints, plantar fasciitis, and many more.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical treatment to resolve pain through healing the underlying cause of injury. Platelets from your blood will be removed through a simple blood draw and concentrated to be injected into the site of injury. Growth factors are a naturally occurring substance which are found in the plasma and tell the body to send more growth factors to stimulate the healing process.
The entire process takes less than 30 minutes. Depending on the severity of injury most patients require between 1-3 sets of PRP injections spaced 3-6 weeks apart. Response to treatment will depend on severity of condition and will vary with each patient. Conditions that could be treated with PRP injections include: osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injury, sprains or strains of ligaments or tendons, chronic knee problems and other conditions. We offer a consultation at no obligation to you to see what treatment is the best option.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of knee arthritis and is the leading cause of disability in the United States. It usually develops slowly over time and pain increases gradually as the cartilage wears away and makes movement painful. Depending on the severity of the damage, there are non-surgical options for repairing the integrity of the joint. We offer viscosupplementation with a unloading brace to reproduce the lubrication in your knee and realigning the joint for proper healing. To see if this is an option for you, please give our office a call to set up a consultation.
