Following consultation and examination, a program of care will be designed and customized to your specific needs. This program is generally centered around the chiropractic adjustment, a method of treatment unique to chiropractic, which corrects spinal subluxations and dysfunction. The primary goal of an adjustment is to improve spinal alignment and motion, thereby relieving nerve irritation, pressure, and pain.

Therapeutic Ultrasound is a high frequency sound wave which enters the skin through a conductive gel to provide deep heat and a cleansing therapeutic effect. It helps to increase local blood flow and helps rid the damaged cells of toxins which accumulate in an inflamed tissue.
Interferential Current muscle stimulation is often prescribed for the treatment of chronic and/or acute post-traumatic pain. It is also used for the relaxation of muscle spasm, the prevention of disuse atrophy, increasing local blood circulation, muscle re-education, and increasing ranges of motion.
Intersegmental Traction is an important part of treatment plans which are designed to alleviate compressive injuries such as disc degeneration and joint inflammation. The act of gently separating the compressed tissues is very soothing and comfortable, leading to a reduction in pain and an increase in flexibility.
