We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.

We aim to alleviate the stress and strains of pregnancy while improving comfort for both the mother and baby. We understand the physical changes that come with pregnancy, and we offer relief without using any drugs.
Electrotherapy is an alternative pain management treatment option that involves the use of mild electromagnetic pulses to provide relief for the patient. This treatment option can dull pain, repair tissue, strengthen muscles, and even improve your blood circulation.
The Activator is the most widely used chiropractic instrument. Studies show improvement with the Activator Method. It also has been compared to other techniques and proven to be just as effective. This means that for many patients an Activator adjustment could very well lead to the same outcome as a manual adjustment. This offers chiropractors and patients an alternative to manual adjusting when it is preferred for clinical reasons.
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that replaces lost wages and pays for medical and chiropractic care for people injured on the job. It typically covers a number of injuries that can happen to nearly any worker. These injuries may occur as a result of a slip and fall accident, tripping over a hazard or on an unsafe surface, or falling off a ladder. For some workers, workers’ compensation will cover injuries that happen while the worker is driving or traveling as part of his or her work duties.
Many neck and back problems associated with workers’ compensation are the result of spinal misalignment, which means that the bones of the spine have moved out of position. Other work-related neck and back problems are the result of soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, affect the muscles, nerves and connective tissue of the neck and back.
Musculoskeletal disorders affect a person’s muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue, such as tendons and ligaments.
A number of musculoskeletal disorders can keep a worker off the job, including:
- Sprains, strains, and tears
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries
- Headaches and migraines
Chiropractic care focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders and other illnesses and injuries, making it an effective long-term solution for many workers injured on the job. Both chiropractic care and acupuncture are effective treatments for musculoskeletal disorders and other problems associated with on-the-job injuries. Chiropractic care and acupuncture support natural healing.
Chiropractic care for worker’s compensation may include advanced spinal correction using state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques and spinal adjustments, acupuncture, corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, nutritional counseling, custom orthotics, and physiotherapy. Spinal adjustments can free trapped nerves and alleviate pressure on the rubbery discs cushioning the bones of the neck and spine. Acupuncture stimulates the production of the body’s own painkillers and anti-inflammatory; it also supports the body’s immune system in ways that positively affect heart rate, brain activity, and blood pressure for patients struggling with workplace injuries covered under workers’ compensation.
