At our wellness centers, we identify spinal misalignments and treat them with noninvasive, drug-free, hands-on techniques. From arthritis and migraines to tendonitis and sciatica, we treat all types of conditions by blending modern innovative techniques with chiropractic procedures.

Chiropractic Care Treatments

Our chiropractic care treatments are designed to help reduce your symptoms and heal your injuries naturally. These treatments help lower inflammation, promote proper joint function and help reduce pain and discomfort.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments from our chiropractors involve using a smooth, swift force to realign joints that are slightly misaligned. This treatment helps with upper and lower back pain and extremity joint pain. It can be used to help heal whiplash, Achilles tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, runner’s knee and various shoulder injuries.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA)

In some instances, you may be better benefited by manipulation under anesthesia (MUA). These are chiropractic adjustments that are performed while you are lightly sedated. We offer this treatment to individuals who have chronic, painful conditions, like arthritis, severe back and/or neck pain and muscle problems, like spasms and short muscles. Our MUA treatment is performed at a local Ambulatory Surgery Center for your safety.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression treatments are performed on a decompression table. It is used to help with back and neck pain caused by herniated discs and pinched nerves. During your session, you will lay on the decompression table with a belt around your waist. Our chiropractor will adjust the table to maximize the effectiveness of the results. While you are undergoing spinal decompression, the table will provide a gentle force in order to lengthen certain sections of your spine to give your discs the room they need to heal. As your discs heal, you will experience improved range of motion of your back and less pain.

Yes! A chiropractor is a doctor; however, there are differences between us and a traditional doctor. Both chiropractors and traditional doctors attend college and graduate with a four-year degree after finishing school. Once college is finished, medical doctors go to a traditional medical school to earn their MD, which stands for a doctor of medicine. In contrast, chiropractors go to chiropractic school and earn their DC, which stands for doctor of chiropractic. Both programs last for four years. Therefore, chiropractors are doctors; however, our training is different from that of a traditional medical doctor.
