Athletes are constantly reaching new heights in their quest for a professional career. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Competitors train rigorously and take their diets to new levels every day.
Yet despite the conscientious care and precautions that athletes follow, most experience musculoskeletal injuries at one time or another.
A chiropractic adjustment, chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method for back pain.
Spinal manipulation relieves pressure on joints, reduces inflammation, and improves nerve function. It has been a trusted form of treatment since ancient Greece. Today, spinal manipulation is used to treat conditions such as allergies, menstrual cramps and headaches.
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle.
Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation. Call for an evaluation of your family’s needs.

Therapeutic Laser Therapy utilizes lasers to alter light giving it the power to penetrate skin and drive healing energy into the tissues.
The main therapeutic effect of these lasers is to stimulate the repair and healing process of an injury or wound. It has also demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defenses while reducing the pain.
The effect is photochemical (like photosynthesis in plants) The laser aids the production of ATP thereby providing the cell with more energy which in turn means the cell is in optimum condition to play it’s part in a natural healing process.
