Our Approach:

physiotherapy, spine pain

Step One: Decrease pain

Once we diagnose what is causing your pain, we use manual therapy and therapeutic modalities to take mechanical stress off the affected structures and control inflammation.


Gentle adjustments/manipulations to the joint and soft tissue are used to take stress off the affected structures. Soft tissue modalities include Instrument assisted soft tissue massage (IASTM), myofascial decompression (cupping) and myofascial release. Therapeutic Ultrasound is used to decrease inflammation.

Pain inhibits muscle function and caues the body to learn irregular movements to avoid pain. Therapeutic exercise and rehab techniques are used to train the body to move correctly. This is where patients apply what they have learned through theraputic exercise and rehab and apply it to their sport or everyday life.

Educational requirements for doctors of chiropractic are among the most stringent of any of the healthcare professions. In total, the chiropractic college curriculum includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical experience.

  • Is Chiropractic care safe?
    “Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest nondrug, noninvasive forms of health care available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours. Doctors of chiropractic are well trained professionals who provide patients with safe, effective care for a variety of common conditions. Their extensive education prepares them to identify patients who have special risk factors and to ensure those patients receive the most appropriate care, even if that requires referral to a medical specialist.” American Chiropractic Association (n.d.) retrieved from
