Above and beyond normal medicine, chiropractic, and physical therapy
Specialized Treatments
In addition to the treatments you might expect from chiropractic care or physical therapy, we provide a number of specialized treatments. Many of these advanced rehabilitation and medical techniques require extended training, and sometimes state-of-the-art equipment. These techniques give us an advantage in resolving your complaints faster and with better long-term results.
