Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjustment: In this office, we offer a breakthrough approach to patient care called Koren Specific Technique. This is not only a gentle non-force specific correction to your spine, structural system and your mind-body but it also offers a form of analysis that is completely unique! It will allow the doctor to help choose which techniques to use to affect the best results for you. Chiropractic is a natural hands-on holistic approach without the use of drugs or surgery to treat patients whose health problems are associated with the body’s muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems. 

Therapies

Different adjunctive therapies may be used in this office including:

  • Electrical muscle stimulation 
  • Hydrocollator therapy 
  • Ultrasound
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Kinesiology taping

The benefits of these therapies will include all or most of the following:  

  • Pain relief 
  • Relaxes muscles reducing muscle spasms/tightness  
  • Reducing inflammation by increasing blood flow and lymphatic drainage 
  •  Increase ranges of motion  
  • Provides support and stability to muscles and joints 

All of which speeds up tissue repair for faster healing.
