Active Release Techniques

The gold standard in “hands on” soft tissue treatment of muscles aches and pains from head to toe. Active Release Techniques or (A.R.T.) is effective for the treatment of overuse or sprain/strain conditions for any muscle in the body.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic manipulation slightly opens the joint, normalizing its motion-sensitive nerves, blocking pain and reducing muscle spasm. Chiropractic care has been proven to be effective in reducing neck and back pain.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles through the skin at specific points on the body. There is no injection of any substance and the treatment itself causes minimal discomfort. Acupuncture is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an adjunct to conventional medical care or on its own when traditional medical therapy has failed.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy provides our patients with services that help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit the permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease.  They restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping, or simply “KT”, is an effective treatment everyone from elite athletes to everyday people with muscle aches and pains. KT is extremely versatile in its ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, promote lymphatic flow, reduce pain, enhance performance, prevent injury, and promote injury resolution.

Assisted Stretching

Assisted Stretching is currently the fastest and most effective way known to increase muscle flexibility. It actually combines passive stretching and isometric stretching to achieve maximum static flexibility.
