A health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy channels causes energy to back up in some areas or restrict flow to others. Energy flow is restored by inserting needles at very precise acupuncture points.
Custom orthotics are specially-made devices designed to support and comfort your feet. Prescription orthotics are crafted for you and no one else. They match the contours of your feet precisely and are designed for the way you move. Orthotics are only manufactured after a doctor has conducted a complete evaluation of your feet, ankles, and legs, so the orthotic can accommodate your unique foot structure and pathology.

What is Cold Laser Therapy Treatment?
Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissues to help accelerate the healing process and alleviate pain.
-Releases endorphins for pain relief
-Increases ATP production to accelerate healing
-Stimulates the immune system
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
IASTM refers to a technique that uses instruments to remove scar tissues from injured soft tissues and facilitate healing process through formation of new extracellular matrix proteins such as collagen. Studies and case reports have reported that IASTM can significantly improve soft tissue function and range of motion following sports injury, while also reducing pain.
Rapid Release Technology uses the power of vibration to break up painful adhesions within the body to release muscles and nerves. After muscle injury or overuse, scar tissue forms in the body. Constructed from the same tissue as skin and collagen, scar tissue has no blood vessels, and therefore receives no circulation. This causes the tissue to become brittle and constrictive, sequestering nerves, limiting flexibility, reducing range of motion, and causing pain. When activated by vibration waves at an optimal frequency of 170 hertz, the scar tissue begins to break up. This Therapy is a safe, painless, and effective method of treatment for several musculoskeletal conditions including:
- Trapped Nerves - Muscle Spasm
- Headaches - Ankle Pain
- Back Pain - Shoulder Pain
- Limited Range of Motion - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Neuromas - Tendonitis
- Contractures (shortening of muscles or joints)
- Adhesions (scar tissue)
- Knee Conditions - Tennis Elbow
-Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
