In the purest sense, chiropractic assesses the function of the nervous system by analyzing and correcting faulty joint movement in the spine and extremities. The purpose of manipulation is to restore abnormal joint motion to areas of restriction. There are a variety of ways to accomplish this but the end result is always the same – less pain and better movement. The use of chiropractors has never been more important than now as we are constantly pushed towards a sedentary lifestyle. Our clinic focuses on educating patients about the importance of pain free movement and the role chiropractic manipulation can play in restoring and maintaining healthy joint motion.
We have found that teaching people how to move better in everyday activities goes so much further than handing them a sheet of corrective exercises. Movement is similar to the English language. If you understand a few basic letters you can create a vocabulary of over a million words. Movement is no different. Understand the basics and you can accomplish incredible things. The problem is nobody is teaching the principals of good movement and much of the current trends in the fitness industry do not address what healthy movement is. Our approach to movement is simple – teach you the fundamentals and let you apply them to your everyday life.

Low Level Light Therapy
Light therapy is one of the only modalities that not only eliminates pain but increases the ability of the body to heal itself - a process well defined in the literature as photobiomodulation. Photo receptors in each of our cells absorb specific wavelengths of infrared light (i.e. 630nm-904nm) resulting in improved function of mitochondria. LLLT is believed to affect the function of connective tissue cells, accelerate connective tissue repair and act as an anti-inflammatory agent. Our patients rave about their success using light therapy for challenging conditions such as Tennis Elbow, Runners knee, Achilles Tendonopathy, low back pain, Plantar Fascitis, Frozen Shoulder and many more.
