Soft tissues like joints and muscles are vital parts of the body. They make moving, working, and playing easier. However, a strain, fracture, or condition like arthritis could affect your soft tissues. These problems could lead to symptoms such as pain and inflammation. In turn, your symptoms could affect your quality of life.
If you need help addressing a musculoskeletal condition, several options are available. You can go for chiropractic care, physical therapy, or rehabilitation. These treatments can help you relieve your aches and pains and improve your mobility. Additionally, chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, and rehabilitation can help you achieve better flexibility, coordination, and balance.

This chiropractic treatment uses manipulation and mobilization techniques to realign your spine. Spinal manipulation involves applying a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust (HVLA) to your spinal joints. It can help you soothe migraine, neck pain, and joint problems like arm and leg pain. Meanwhile, spinal mobilization helps your spinal joints move through gentle motions done by our seasoned chiropractors.
If you’re dealing with hip pain, adjusting your hip could help soothe your aches. A hip adjustment could keep your discomfort from coming back, too. It could even help restore muscle strength and joint flexibility. Moreover, hip adjustments can get your joints moving optimally again. Our chiropractors can relieve painful hips through massages, adjustments, and exercises.
We can also adjust your back to relieve pain, stiffness, and strains. Moreover, a back adjustment could help address herniated discs and limited mobility. We can perform an adjustment on your upper or lower back. We’ll realign the affected area with techniques like flexion-distraction, a technique that uses adjusting tables to stretch your back.
Full Body Adjustment
This chiropractic adjustment targets your whole body. Apart from soothing aches and improving mobility, full body adjustments can help reduce stress. They enable better blood circulation and brain function, too. We use several techniques and tools in our full body chiropractic adjustments. The activator technique is one of these methods. It uses an activator instrument to mobilize affected joints.
We can also address painful tailbones through chiropractic care. A tailbone adjustment could help you relieve pain from an injured tailbone. Additionally, this chiropractic treatment could help realign your tailbone and stretch its ligaments. Our tailbone adjustments involve manipulations, massages, and stretching. These methods can help soothe a painful tailbone and relax its tight muscles.
Manual therapy helps ease tight muscles and accompanying aches. It enables better blood flow to muscles, as well. We work on your affected muscles with our hands. Adjustments, mobilizations, and massages are techniques we use for manual therapy.
We can also recommend specific exercises to help you address muscle, joint, and soft tissue problems. These exercises help regain and maintain your body’s strength, endurance, flexibility, stability, and balance. Therapeutic exercises include range-of-motion, strengthening, and flexibility exercises.
Beyond manual therapy, we also address soft tissue problems with special tools. Therapy modalities can help rebuild muscle strength, reduce tension, and enable recovery. Some of the tools we use include hot and cold packs and ultrasound devices.
Traction therapy stretches your spine, releasing pressure on spinal discs. In turn, your affected disc’s soft center goes back into place. When the core returns to its original position, it results in decompressed spinal nerves and less pain.
Physical therapy goes beyond adjustments, exercises, and modalities. It’ll also help you learn what causes your current condition and how you can manage it. We can teach you how to correct your posture, avoid falls, and prevent reinjury during activities.
Bursitis happens when bursae, the small sacs within your body, swell. It could occur in your shoulders, elbows, knees, hips, or buttocks. Bursitis often stems from repetitive movement.
A herniated disc compresses your spinal nerves and produces severe pain. Most of the time, this condition affects the lower back. Age and trauma could cause a slipped disc.
Foot & Ankle Pain
These types of pain affect your foot and ankle. Injuries, overuse, or conditions like arthritis and heel pain could hurt your foot. Meanwhile, a painful ankle could stem from ankle injuries, gout, or osteoarthritis.
Hip pain can be felt within or around your hip joint. The ache mostly occurs in your groin or thigh. Inflamed tendons, arthritis, and fractures are some common causes of hip pain.
Sprains & Strains
Sprains affect your ligaments, while strains hurt your muscles or tendons. Accidents, contact sports, or repetitive motions can lead to a sprain or strain.
