Service Information

What is Chiropractic Manipulation?

Chiropractic manipulation is a manual modality that can restore mobility to a joint, relax surrounding soft tissues and decrease pain. This technique attempts to use the normal biomechanics of the spine and extremities in order to create motion in spinal or extremity joints, with the goal of restoring function and structure to the joint. The chiropractic adjustment is a powerful tool that can decrease pain, increase healing and promote overall better health and performance.

What is Manual Therapy?

The purpose of manual therapy is to reduce adhesions or scarring, aid in proper healing and increase oxygen and nutrient delivery to your muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, thereby allowing for improved function and decreased pain. Whether it is sprains, strains or chronic injuries, treating the soft tissue structures consisting of fascia, muscles and nerves, is absolutely crucial to improving overall patient outcomes.

What is Functional Rehabilitation?

The aim of Functional Rehabilitation is to simply restore normal function to the joints, soft tissues and nervous system. The Doctors both hold a Masters degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation, and through their education and training they have developed the skills to become thorough and effective at treating various sports injuries.
