  • Graston Technique

    Graston Technique is a soft tissue mobilization technique utilizing specially designed tools to assist athletes and individuals with their injuries. Just as a crumpled paper doesn’t appear smooth as a normal one does, neither does muscle after injury. This technique ensures that the paper, oops, muscle, regains its normal appearance and function after an acute or chronic injury.

  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points, which have been empirically proven effective in the treatment of specific disorders. The Chinese have mapped these points over a period of 2000 years and we know where they are. Like knowing the streets and buildings of a city will help you to your destination, knowing these points and utilizing them effectively can assist with many painful conditions to get you where you want to be.

Spinal Decompression Therapy involves a specially designed table attached to an advanced computer module. The distractive (traction) forces performed by the table and unit create decompression (unloading) of the spine improving blood flow and delivering focused treatment to the neck or lower back.
