Chiropractic is a natural, hands-on form of health care that focuses on aligning the body's structure and removing nervous system interference to allow normal functioning of the entire body. A chiropractor’s goal is to find the source of the problem and correct it, rather than providing drugs or surgeries. Chiropractic is over 100 years old and is the 3rd largest health care science in America.
What can chiropractic do for you? You are always better off with your spine in line and your nervous system functioning at its absolute best. We have success with hundreds of conditions including any kind of joint/back/neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, scoliosis, and tendonitis.

Acupuncture is a health science used to treat pain and dysfunction in the body. Its roots (5000-7000 years old) come primarily from China. Early Chinese physicians mapped an energy network (meridians) located just beneath the skin. These meridians work with all of the body's systems - circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive. When this network is blocked or weakened, the entire harmony of the body is disrupted, resulting in pain and dysfunction. Acupuncture stimulates the specific meridian points on the body, helping to restore harmony and function.
The World Health Organization states that acupuncture is effective in over 100 conditions. Conditions that we treat the most include acute & chronic pain, migraines, tension headaches, neuralgia, bedwetting, asthma, allergies, skin conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, high blood pressure, fatigue, and anxiety. Acupuncture is also very effective with addiction control of smoking and overeating.

Massage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. Massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.
We are what we eat. Our doctors offer a great deal of nutritional counseling, from discussing healthy eating to recommending high quality nutritional supplements. We also offer ALCAT testing through our office, a well-documented alternative to traditional food allergy testing that only requires a simple blood draw in our office. The ALCAT test can also help patients lose weight, relieve fibromyalgia, quell gastrointestinal issues, and much more. Tracing a potential food sensitivity is critical for those who do not suffer from full-blown allergies yet still experience a variety of food intolerance symptoms.
