CHIROPRACTIC

_MG_4940.jpg

Chiropractic is the healing science that places emphasis on maintaining the structural integrity and balance of the body, focusing primarily on spinal alignment. The goal of chiropractic care is to allow your body to heal itself and function optimally without the use of drugs or surgery.

PHYSICAL THERAPY

_MG_4365.jpg

Physical Therapy is a health profession involving care for those who experience temporary or permanent disability due to pain, injury or illness. The primary purpose of Physical Therapy is to reduce pain, increase range of motion, strengthen and improve functional mobility.

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment for back or neck pain due to disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, spinal stenosis and muscle spasms. We offer this FDA approved treatment in our office.

 ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is an alternative treatment that has existed for over 3,000 years. Originating from ancient China, it is used to restore balance to the body with an aim toward total wellness. It is a safe, pain-free approach to healing used to activate the body's own healing process.

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness?

Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
