Shockwave Therapy

A therapeutic modality used in physical therapy and sports medicine for the treatment of common musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. Acoustic waves generated by the shockwave are driven into chronically injured tissues to trigger biological effects that lead to faster, long-term healing and tissue regeneration.

MedX® Low-Level Laser Therapy

Light energy is penetrated deep into the tissue, resulting in a decrease in swelling, an acceleration in healing time, and an increase in the pain threshold due to the release of endorphins.

Joint Manipulation & Mobilization

A non-invasive manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills a chiropractor develops during four intensive years of study. When indicated, manipulation of the joints in the body, often the spine, is used to reduce pain, improve joint mobility, and restore proper function to the area.

Dry needling

The treatment of trigger points or muscle knots involves inserting a fine acupuncture needle into the problematic muscle to partially or fully release the trigger point. Dry needling is well complimented with manual/manipulative therapy and corrective exercises for effective management of both chronic and acute pain.

Graston Technique®

Reflexology is a focused pressure technique, usually directed at the feet or hands. It is based on the premise that there are zones and reflexes on different body parts that correspond to and are relative to all parts, glands, and organs of the entire body.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping utilizes negative pressure to separate—pull—the skin and subcutaneous tissue away from the underlying layers of muscle and fascia. A plastic cup is placed on the skin, and a pump draws air out, creating a vacuum. This separation of tissues allows for improved blood flow, increased lymphatic drainage, and improved cellular function and mobility in the tissues.
