Rather than just ‘covering up’ symptoms with medication, we look for the original cause of your pain.
Although pain is unpleasant, it’s never the real problem. Pain is our body’s way of telling us something is wrong, much like a smoke detector. When your smoke detector goes off, you don’t turn it off – you look for a fire!
We specialize in finding the real cause of your pain, correcting it and giving you the tools you need to keep it from coming back.
Because we want your life to improve as quickly as possible, we use only the most effective treatments available. Since each injury and each person is different, each treatment plan is different. We develop a program that’s right for you, and only you.
We do NOT subscribe to the old saying, “No pain, no gain.” In our program, the focus is on pain-free movement. Your treatment plan may include gentle spinal manipulation to restore normal joint function, core training to develop confident movement, balance training to improve muscular support and coordination, and flexibility work to increase range of motion. If you’re not getting adequate nutrition, we’ll show you how to make the small changes that get big results.
And once you’re well, we want to keep you that way. Our aim is to prepare you for the life or the sport you choose, and equip you with the tools you need to prevent re-injuries. After all, it’s much easier to keep you healthy than it is to fix you when you’re broken!
And, our highly trained and capable staff are always available and ready to help, no matter how ‘silly’ the question. We’re here to make your healing experience productive and fun!
