Welcome to Spine and Sports Chiropractic
What is OUR brand of chiropractic healthcare? Simple. We diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities. If it involves joints, muscles, or tendons, it’s our domain. Neck and lower back pain, headaches, sciatica, disc problems, and nerve entrapments, as well as sports related conditions such as shoulder rotator cuff pain, achilles tendinitis, and knee pain are some examples of what we address on a daily basis. With a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and a Chiropractic Sports Medicine degree, we are expert in two arenas: Spine and Sport Medicine.
Nobody understands spine conditions as well as a spine care specialist. That is exactly what we are. What we provide is a careful medical history and examination of the spine, based on training, experience, and guided by current clinical literature on the best ways to address spine problems. We are sure about when to order an X-ray or MRI, or when to refer you to a surgeon, pain-management specialist, or other provider. We treat spine conditions with a combination of manual procedures including joint manipulation, lumbar decompression, dynamic forms of stretching and soft tissue massage, exercises, and modalities such as cold laser or ultrasound. See our products/services tab to learn more.
