    Treatment

    This is where our doctors start putting together the biomechanical puzzle pieces to fix your condition. You will begin chiropractic care that same visit. Treatments are tailored to each patient’s needs and may consist of chiropractic adjustments, soft-tissue release, E-Stim, Ice etc, or a combination of the above depending on your specific condition. For each patient, a rehabilitation program will be custom-designed with the goal of expediting the recovery process and prevention of re-injury. Chiropractic manipulation restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal. Our approach utilizes a test, treat, and retest approach, ensuring patients receive the highest standard of care possible.
