We Get Rid Of
So You Can Do The Things That You Love To Do
Lose Fat. Gain Muscle.
Emsculpt Neo is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure to provide both fat reduction and muscle building in a single 30-minute treatment session. It sports 2 technologies in 1 system: Synchronized radiofrequency energy to eliminate unwanted fat, and High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic technology (HIFEM+) for muscle building. RF delivers thermal energy (heat) into the targeted fat for fat breakdown, while HIFEM+ produces supramaximal contractions in the targeted muscles for muscle building.

— Our goal is to get you out of pain and stabilize your structure to help prevent future injuries.
Chiropractors utilize this method to treat musculoskeletal pain. The manipulation consists of a high velocity, low amplitude thrust to a joint that is “locked” or not moving properly, thereby restoring motion to the joint.
When appropriate, the doctors will devise exercise routines to help keep a patient healthy and free of pain. These routines can strengthen weakened areas that cause musculoskeletal problems. We believe that our job is to get patients out of pain and instruct them to be pro active to keep themselves pain free in settings outside of our office.
Receptor-Tonus Technique/Trigger Point Therapy
This technique is a system designed to locate trigger points through manual direct pressure, eliminate the muscle spasms and interrupt the flow of pain signals to the nervous system. This technique is effective for musculoskeletal problems from the feet to the jaw and all areas in between. Precise pressure on the trigger points in a tight muscle, blocks the nerve impulses that keep the muscle in spasm, letting the muscle relax. This relieves pain and restores normal biomechanical function to the affected area.
Ultrasound conducts minute sound waves into the muscle, reducing inflammation and helping to restore blood flow to irritated muscles. It provides immediate, and in most cases, long term relief to the affected muscles, as it assists in reducing the pain and irritation, and helps to restore range of motion.
Active Release Technique
Is a soft tissue method that focuses on relieving tissue tension via the removal of fibrosis/adhesions which can develop in tissues as a result of overload due to repetitive use. ART is specifically designed to quickly reduce pain and restore function. Whether you’ve got a minor strain or a complex injury, ART gets you back to work and back to play faster and more effectively than conventional therapy methods).
As doctors, we realize that we cannot treat every complaint presented. When needed, we refer the patient to other health professionals for appropriate treatment. We have a large referral base that includes orthopedists, oncologists, rheumatologists, primary care physicians, physical therapists, acupuncturists and a host of other health care professionals. We work closely with all aspects of the medical community and share our knowledge with the medical profession.
Electric Stimulation is a modality that consists of attaching electrodes to an irritated muscle. These electrodes emit a current that stimulates and contracts the muscle, “exercising” the muscle to relieve the spasm that accompanies muscle strains.
Also called Traction, this technique utilizes a special section chiropractic table equipped with a moveable leg piece. This table moves up and down, specifically stretching out the muscles of the lower back. The movement of the table tractions the muscles and gaps the joint and discs in the lower back. This technique is useful in reducing herniated discs and strained lower back muscles and ligaments.
Prenatal chiropractic also focuses more on the pelvis to help with pelvic alignment (which can help with labor and vaginal delivery) and to ensure there’s plenty of room for baby as they grow and invert in the third trimester. This approach to [pregnancy-related] ailments allows a gentle enough touch that is safe for both mom and the baby.
Our CBD full spectrum topical lotion has long-lasting relief, is non-psychoactive, anti-inflammatory and 100% plant based material.
