A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain, upper back pain, mid back pain, neck pain, migraine headaches, TMJ, shoulder pain. The Activator Method® is one of the most widely researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy.
The treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery. Physical Therapy is the restoration, maintenance, and promotion of optimal physical function. 
Electrostimulation is an electric current application method used for excitation and activation of certain organs and systems of the human body.  
Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).
Every year statistically, more and more people are faced with weight gain due to aspects of lifestyle. Our jobs, for many, increase rates of physical inactivity and lead to convenience foods and a rise in reported stress and sleepless nights. With more “new to nature foods” and more sugar consumption for energy, we see widely fluctuating blood glucose levels.
The stress of everyday life – whether job-related or personal – can have a negative impact on overall health, especially one’s cognitive function. The nutraMetrix® Cognitive and Stress Management Regimen includes scientifically-supported products to provide comprehensive support for these areas of health. These carefully formulated and cutting-edge nutraceuticals can help support memory enhancement, mood stabilization, neurological health, normal cognitive function and the body’s adaptation to stress.

Migraine Headaches, TMJ and other head related issues.

If you have a headache, you’re not alone. Nine out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea. What do you do when you suffer from a pounding headache? Do you grit your teeth and carry on? Lie down? Pop a pill and hope the pain goes away? There is a better alternative.

Research shows that spinal manipulation – one of the primary treatments provided by doctors of chiropractic – may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. 

Upper and Lower Back

A healthy spine is an often-overlooked and essential part of a healthy lifestyle. People who suffer from back pain, particularly if it is long-term, are generally less healthy than those who do not. In fact, back pain costs are staggering not only financially, but also in terms of lost time from work and because of psychosocial problems that arise during the healing process associated with long-term back pain.

Unfortunately, approximately 80-90% of the population suffers from spinal pain at some point. People who are overweight or obese, and who smoke, lift heavy objects, or had a previous episode of back pain, are more likely to experience back pain.

Neck Pain

Our neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. Incredibly, the cervical spine supports the full weight of your head, which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.

The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear.   Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.

What Our Patients Are Saying

After looking into various web sites and checking on a few doctors, She was very positive about my problem. She also interview me about the problems, and inquired about my medical history before any sessions, X-rays, MRI, etc. No other doctors did this. She has always responded on my call backs as for no reason does my back mess-up and I’m in pain. I can walk in and get treatment –no problem. I’ve dealt with some various chiropractors over the years and, by far, she has been outstanding. Why you need help with pain problem, she is always helpful.
