What Sets Us Apart
Newest research shows that collaborative care between multidisciplinary practitioners in an integrated setting gives the best possible patient care and produces optimal results in the least amount of time. This is why we are committed to an integrative approach. Our services encompass a comprehensive, patient oriented system of heath care.
Chiropractic is a process of manually correcting the nerve pathways that send information from your brain to your body. When the nerve pathway is blocked with in the spine, what we call a subluxation of the vertebrae, the muscles around the area become sore and fatigued, ultimately causing pain. Chiropractic adjustments, free these pathways and relieve pain.
Chiropractic is great for acute neck and back pain.
Acupuncture, like chiropractic, acupuncture works with the nerve pathways of the body. In addition to treating the nerves along the spine, acupuncture treats the neural pathways in the entire body. We call these pathways channels of Qi. Qi, energy and blood flow become stuck due to tight muscles and blocked neural pathways. Acupuncture restores the pathways and normal function muscles, joints and organs.
Acupuncture is great for acute or chronic pain in muscles and joints.
If you have seen a physical therapist before, you will quickly notice, our Physical Therapist takes a different approach. We don’t go straight for the problem, we find the cause! Our first goal is to determine dysfunctional or compensatory movement patterns as well as what musculoskeletal or neurological impairments contribute to your pain.
Much like chiropractic and acupuncture, orthopedic manual therapy works to relieve the joints, soft tissue and nerve pathways that send information from your brain through your spinal cord to your body. In addition, physical therapy also specifically works to re-educate your neuromuscular system as well as increase your strength and coordination.
Physical therapy is a great fit for chronic and acute joint pain, neck, shoulder, low back, hip and pelvic pain.
Manual Therapy (massage)
We all love massage, and with good reason, it feels good, but how long do the results last?
Our manual therapists are licensed massage therapists who have countless hours of additional training as therapists muscle tension relief, increased blood flow and opening of neural pathways. This specialized training allows for treatments to last longer than traditional massage.
As you can see, all of these modalities are similar in their outcome goals, but the approach is slightly different. We know, that each person is also different, and different folks calls for different strokes, which is why the integrated approach is so effective.
Integrated Approach For Pain Relief
Decreased Pain and Increased Range of Motion
In a short period of time you will notice decreased pain and increased range of motion for individual muscle groups pertaining to your area of pain. This is due to each modalities direct ability to loosen muscles, increase blood flow and allow normal muscle memory to return.
Once pain decreases and range of motion increases, postural correction is implemented to prevents future injury. When needed we will TEACH you specific stretches to retrain your muscles to with stand repeated physical stressors. We don’t just want your pain to go away…..we never want to see it return! Improved neurological functioning: The nervous system is directly impacted by the use of acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy and massage therapy. When injured muscles are loosened and repaired nerve regeneration quickly follows as does decrease pain, tingling, numbness and any muscle loss that may have occurred due to nerve damage.
