Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation
The act of mobilizing a joint in order to restore range of motion, reduce pain signaling, and replenish synovial joints.
Research shows that spinal manipulation can reduce pain but at the end of the day, a joint that stays mobile, stays healthy.
You might stretch out your hamstrings and loosen up your hips after your jog, but a skilled manual therapist can mobilize almost any joint in the body and manually assist in active stretching techniques such as PIR, or Post Isometric Relaxation.
Diet Analysis and Recommendations
There is simply too much conflicting advice in the realm of nutrition. Unfortunately, drastic conclusions are often drawn from low level science.
You cannot blame yourself for being confused by conflicting information. It takes a lot of time with reliable sources to sort through it.
We can help you make small changes to your diet to reduce inflammation, improve overall health, and maybe even reduce body fat.
Functional Movement Screening
A service that is designed to elicit faulty movement patterns throughout the body.
Faulty movements might not cause pain now but if they exist for too long, they might cause pain in the future.
This service would be followed by personalized exercise prescription.
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE CARE IS THE BEST KIND OF CARE.
