Often a chiropractic adjustment is thought to just treat back pain, but it can be applied to any joint in the body. Improper joint movement will interfere with the overall movement quality of the body and can lead to pain and/or tissue damage.
Chiropractic adjustments safely and effectively restore motion to restricted joints and normalize the movement of the body as a whole.
Adjusting involves placing the body into a safe position to encourage the desired movement and applying a quick, specific force into the joint. Chiropractic adjustments are very effective at alleviating pain and improving athletic performance.

Muscle imbalances prevent your joints from aligning and functioning properly. The poor joint function will disrupt your ability to move — putting you at greater risk for injury, chronic muscle pain, and joint pain.
That’s why, at first, we look at how your body functions as a whole before prescribing rehabilitation exercises. Movement is a coordinated effort involving your brain, spinal cord, and muscles. We will assess your movement and any muscle imbalances using the NMS Functional Evaluation. The NMS Functional Evaluation pinpoints your body’s weak links — such as poor posture, lack of flexibility, joint dysfunction, decreased strength, endurance, stability, balance, or faulty movement patterns. Then, we will design a corrective exercise routine tailored to your exact needs based on the examination’s findings. And once your body is balanced and more stable, a total fitness program can be designed to keep you performing properly.
When muscles, or other tissues, are overstressed or injured, our bodies use scar tissue as a patch repair. This is a natural part of the healing process; however, if the cause of the injury is not alleviated properly, the muscle will accumulate too much scar tissue and then becomes a problem.
Soft-tissue therapies work out the scar tissue and help the muscle heal normally with long-lasting results. Numerous soft-tissue therapy techniques are employed at our clinic, including massage therapy, myofascial release, Graston technique, Active Release Technique, and trigger point therapy.
At our clinic, every patient receives a thorough examination to determine the root cause of their pain. We can help patients identify and manage a wide range of symptoms thanks to our comprehensive review process. Many people come in with injuries sustained while working out, playing sports, or as a result of a car accident. Additionally, we are experts in treating pain that stems from less obvious sources such as postural disorders, poor workplace ergonomics, and others.
Each case is different. Each person seeking treatment at our clinic is given a unique treatment plan to maximize their recovery and allow them to return to their favorite activities. Treatment plans are created by utilizing a combination of the following tools: soft tissue treatment, specific injury-related rehab exercises, chiropractic adjustment, or our Class IV cold laser treatment.
You will be led into a consultation room and met by one of our physicians at your first appointment. Our new patient exam begins with a detailed clinical history to ensure that we have a complete image of any medical events that could be leading to your chief concern or a contraindication to your care.
We then perform a detailed history specific to the chief complaint that brought you into the office. At this time, you can provide us with any additional information or medical studies that may be pertinent to your case, such as radiology reports or diagnostic imaging. Finally, we will assist you in setting recovery goals once we have a clear understanding of your situation. At our clinic, not only do we want to help you get out of pain, but we also want to help you achieve any goals you may have.
After taking a detailed medical history, we'll run you through a battery of neurological, orthopedic, and functional movement tests to help us find out which treatment choice is best for you.
Based on the examination results, the doctor will create a report of their findings for discussion. Our recommended treatment tools will then be explained and performed. Finally, the doctor will go through your recovery schedule, anticipated progressions, and when your next appointment should be.
Our appointment times are built to fit into your hectic schedule. However, we encourage patients to schedule 2-3 appointments out to get their preferred appointment times.
