Adjusting the spine is the cornerstone of chiropractic. When the spinal joints are not properly aligned or not properly mobile it can cause a cascade of dysfunction in the body from muscular to neurological dysfunction. This dysfunction puts the body at risk for injury, improper biomechanical function, early degenerative changes, and overall reduced functional performace and capacity. We utilize multiple techniques in order to provide the greatest service to our patients. Along with the traditional manual adjustments, your doctor may use special tool or techniques along with specific physical therapies and rehabilitative therapies to help you achieve the best result possible. Spinal adjustments are gentle, safe, and designed to help restore optimal function the spine and body.

The tape itself is water resistant and can be left on for several days, it is lightweight and latex-free, flexible and semi-breatheable.
How does it work? The tape itself is very special. The brightly-colored kinesiology tape is made up of cotton fibers with polymer elastic strands woven throughout.

Our patients have access to some of the best products available. Greens First is a phenomenal product that we not only use ourselves, but also highly recommend for patients as a dietary supplement. The typical American Diet is full of calories but short on nutrition, especially micro and phyto-nutrients.

Greens First delivers on all of this by being a completely plant based, whole food micro-nutrient supplement that you can give to everyone in your family.

Patients with certain types of spinal problems often benefit from custom-made orthotics or spinal pelvic stabilizers for additional support. These devices stabilize the foundation of the pelvis and spine by first addressing structural problems with the feet, thereby reducing abnormal forces and stresses, while enhancing structural and functional relationships. By having the proper support, your entire body has a greater chance of being balanced, which helps to decrease the stress placed on your joints. Benefits of Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers:
Properly fitted Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers support the foot to control excessive and unwanted pronation (foot turning inward) and supination (foot turning outward). This helps to reduce unwanted stress on the body.
Improved shock absorption reduces repetitive stress on joints and muscles, permitting smoother function and decreasing arthritic symptoms.
Use of Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers represents a long-term, yet cost-effective intervention for many types of functional and structural problems.
We have the ability and the necessary equipment to scan your feet, in our office, to determine whether you can benefit from the use of custom-made spinal pelvic stabilizers.
