Evidence-informed and patient-centered treatment by a Chiropractic Doctor may include soft-tissue treatment, myofascial release, joint mobilizations & manipulations, nerve stimulation, and remedial exercise to treat musculoskeletal injuries & dysfunction.

Contemporary Medical (aka Neurofunctional) Acupuncture involves stimulation of the peripheral nerves at specific anatomical points for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain and movement disorders, sports injuries, functional problems, headaches, stress-related disorders, and chronic pain stemming from or exacerbated by dysregulation of the nervous system.

Custom orthotics are made to measure with state-of-the-art 3D digital scanning, based on a thorough biomechanical assessment and gait analysis by a chiropractor. A detailed medical prescription is required for patients who will be submitting claims to their insurance plans.
Functional conditioning is a proactive and personalized approach to movement therapy. Starting with an assessment of your health, goals, and current biomechanics, your doctor will prescribe a treatment plan that includes 1:1 strength and mobility training sessions and hands-on dynamic soft-tissue therapy, neuromuscular facilitation, and a progressive program for you to get the most out of your home or gym workouts. Ideal for anyone who is looking to make significant changes in posture, joint-specific mobility or stability, or recover from chronic repetitive strains, deep tendon injuries, capsular restrictions or scarring. Functional conditioning is eligible for direct billing on plans that have coverage for chiropractic.
Cupping Therapy uses glass or silicon cups and vacuum pressure to apply varying levels of suction to specific points on the body. Cupping Therapy is often referred to as Tissue Distraction Release, using shear force (instead of, or in addition to compressive techniques) to release trigger points or muscle restrictions. Chiropractic care uses cupping as soft-tissue therapy and pain relief within the context of an overall chiropractic care plan.
No Adjustments Chiropractic
Chiropractic care is well known for its spinal adjustments, but those who prefer not to have adjustments can still benefit. Chiropractic doctors offer a holistic approach to care that also includes manual soft tissue release, exercise therapy, joint mobilizations, neurofunctional techniques, specialized modalities like cupping and medical acupuncture, and lifestyle support .
