Chiropractic is a type of health care that works with the nervous system as well as with the musculoskeletal system. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to diagnose and treat injuries and disorders that involve the nervous system, the muscles and the bones. Chiropractors work directly with the spine to remove any interference that may be preventing the body from healing itself and from restoring the natural processes within the body. Like all other areas in health care, new patients will undergo a consultation that involves reviewing past and current health conditions, medications and surgeries as well as a physical examination. Once this process is completed our team will use all of the information to establish a diagnosis and create an individualized treatment plan.

Vibra-Percussor - Neuro-muscular Re-education
Vibrapercussor - percussion therapy is an exciting new treatment approach for muscle and ligament problems and related myofascial conditions.
The Vibrapercussor instrument is used by many professional sports teams to enhance rehabilitation and help reduce pain and discomfort among their top players. Now that same technology is available in this office.
The Vibrapercussor delivers waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues of the body. These percussion waves promote and increase circulation and lymphatic flow, and decrease muscle spasms. Additionally, these waves heighten neurological awareness of specific areas of the body and facilitate energetic normalization.
The repetitive pumping action of the Vibrapercussor is ideal for releasing joints. The power of multiple percussive waves accumulate to loosen up 'stuck' areas without using heavy thrusting forces. (Gentle Spinal Adjustment)
The Vibrapercussor is also highly effective in treating fascial restriction. Restrictions at the shoulder, hip, and knee joints can be treated successfully with minimal discomfort.
Vibrapercussor therapy often helps 'frozen' shoulders to become mobile in just a few visits. The Vibrapercussor is also very helpful with scars and adhesions associated with surgery.
What to expect during and after your treatment:
- During a treatment, vertebral joints are "Mobilized" or moved and it is normal for the tissue surrounding the joints, and the joints themselves to feel sore or "bruised" after a treatment. This soreness often subsides 1-2 days after a treatment.
- Using ice can be helpful with the management of soreness noted after treatment.
- It usually takes nine to eighteen treatments along with the patient's own personal efforts to improve one's posture, flexibility and overall mobility.
- Best results have been noted when the first treatments are within 2 - 3 days of each other. By keeping treatments close together, we can continue to build upon the results of prior treatments and in turn reach therapeutic goals.
- After treatment sessions, it is often common to feel tired and/or emotional.
- It is recommended to continue with treatments until the normal range of motion and joint mobility has returned to the spine, even if symptoms have subsided. This is important because it can prevent symptoms from reoccurring.
What to Avoid:
- After treatments, it is important not to do too much too soon.
- Slouching and poor posture during common day-to-day activities. It is important to take breaks throughout the day when one feels their posture worsening.
- Remain conscious of your posture while sitting, standing, walking or running in order to strengthen the postural stabilizers.
