- Sacroiliac joint pain
- Arthritis (hips, knees, spine)
- Repetitive strain injuries (ex. Tennis elbow, Jumper’s knee…)
- Shoulder injuries (ex. Rotator cuff tears, Frozen shoulder…)
- Carpal tunnel
- TMJ dysfunction
- Pregnancy-related low back pain
A chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is when a controlled sudden force is applied to a joint by a chiropractor using their hands or a small instrument. These adjustments improve spinal and joint range of motion, while also having the ability to decrease surrounding muscle and nerve tension, and improve overall body function.
Low-Level Laser therapy is used to help treat a variety of disorders including acute and chronic conditions, physical injuries, and repetitive strain disorders.
This treatment modality uses phototherapy to promote faster healing of the body by using a specific kind of light to penetrate the surface of the skin and the underlying tissues. This stimulates the body’s natural repair process which results in accelerated recovery while reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation of affected tissues.
