Most often, the word “chiropractic” is associated with spinal adjustments. In many cases, that is exactly right however all of our chiropractors are specially trained to utilize other options for conditions that respond better to different techniques. Oftentimes, there may not be a need for a spinal adjustment if your condition would not benefit from one.
A concussion is a mild brain injury that causes a disturbance in cells caused by an acceleration or deceleration of the brain following a significant impact to the head or elsewhere on the body. Some indications you may have a concussion are headache or pressure in the head, dizziness, blurred or distorted vision and difficulty remembering or concentrating.
Our Chiropractors can help you return to play and recover after a concussion using exercise therapy, manual therapy and education and reassurance.
TMJ Disorder/Jaw Pain
TMJ (temporomandibular joints) are the joints that act like a hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull. In our day-to-day life, these joints are in constant use making them subject to wear and tear which can lead to pain and dysfunctions. Chiropractic care uses gentle natural treatments to relieve pain, help with the alignment of the jaw and improve muscle function.
Shockwave Technology, also known as EPAT and Pressure Wave Therapy, can successfully address acute and chronic pain, relieve trigger points, address sports injuries, scar tissue, stress fractures and more.
The high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body to improve the regenerative potential by enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
Beneficial effects can be experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments and there is no downtime.

Blood Flow Restriction Therapy
Known as BFR for short, this technique combines low intensity exercise with cuffs that restrict the flow of blood to a certain area. The cuffs are inflated to a specific pressure with the aim of obtaining a partial or complete restriction of blood flow.
If you are interested in BFR, in an initial assessment our chiropractors will provide you with instructions on using the cuffs as well as a program of exercises to use with the cuffs. After your assessment, patients are able to come into the clinic to use the cuffs on their own.
