A manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during the intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractor typically uses his/her hands to adjust the joints of the body, particularly the spine, but sometimes in the extremities, in order to reduce pain and restore or enhance joint function. Chiropractic adjustments are highly controlled and rarely cause discomfort. The chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately post-adjustment.
ART (Active Release Technique) :
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
This techniques are instrument assisted soft tissue-based modalities which enhance the clinician's ability to detect and treat fascial adhesions and restrictions, clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions.
Trigger Point Therapy and Fascial Manipulation:
Trigger Point bodywork involves cross-friction massage on very specific points of the body with the goal of balancing and improving fascial biomechnics within a certain kinetic chain of movement.
Therapeutic Stretching (Assisted):
Static Stretching involves a gradual and controlled elongation of the fascia though the full range of motion (without pain), which is held for 15-30 seconds.
PFS Stretching Postfacilitation stretching is a proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) technique used to treat chronic tight fascia. This method is an isometric contraction held for 7-10 seconds followed by 12-20 seconds of stretching. The goal is to increase range of motion.
PIR Stretching Postisometric relaxation stretching has been used for “muscle energy procedures” or techniques (MET) for joint mobilization to increased range of motion by relaxing muscular spasm which limit joint range of motion. A muscle is brought to slight resistance at end range and is held for 10 seconds, after which the patient relaxes the muscle. The relaxation stretch may last for 10 seconds or more until a new barrier is reached.
*Appointment Types & Pricing
*Our unique blending of therapeutic techniques are offered in an effort to unwind the body’s stress-adaptive patterns, thus facilitating proper structure, balanced mobility and improved nervous system function. See below for a brief description of the timed treatments offered:
20 minute visit (the tune-up): This session is intended for the pain-free patient to receive what matters most, the chiropractic adjustment. A limited amount of soft-tissue work and stretching is added with the intent of enhancing the adjustment. This visit is not intended for a patient who is following up with the chiropractor for treatment of a painful condition (see 40 or 60 minute visit). - $60
40 minute visit (the follow-up): This session is a follow-up visit designed with the intent to deliver chiropractic adjustments to the spine and extremities (if needed) to restore joint function along with time spent with combined soft tissue work, stretching and homework for self-management. The goals in mind are stated above. This is the most utilized session and the preferred visit for a high-quality doctor-patient interaction. -$100
60 minute visit (new patient visit or long-time-away re-evaluation): This visit is for the new patient and doctor to perform a history and exam or for an existing patient who has not been into the office to re-visit the history and exam and for the doctor to thoroughly evaluate and deliver an intensive and wholistic treatment. Adjustments will likely be performed along with soft tissue work, stretching, follow-up recommendations and homework for self-care. $150
