Our Approach

We care for you - mind, body, and soul. We honor that your system is self-healing, self-regulating & constantly evolving. Our approach focuses on the tone or tension in the body as well as movement assessment and re-education.  We utilize a variety of chiropractic techniques to facilitate individuals recovering and relief from patterns that may be causing symptoms of pain, discomfort, or dis-ease.  

Step 1 : Detailed health history - we will walk through the timeline of your life and investigate the moments that may have contributed stress, spurred adaptation, and helped make you who you are today.  This includes traumas, both big and small, physical, emotional, and even dietary or environment in nature.  Gathering as much information as possible to help paint a big picture of your health. 

Step 2 : Posture analysis – This analysis will allow us a window into the human frame.  We interact with gravity everyday and how we carry ourselves can contribute to tension or pain patterns that express themselves as symptoms. 

Step 3 : Functional movement Analysis - During your initial visit we will watch how you carry yourself through a gait cycle, overhead squat, and specific ranges of motion.  Every joint in your body sends critical information to your brain about your position in space as well as your relationship to gravity and the ground.  We will analyze each joint to ensure your brain is getting accurate information and watch your movement patterns to assess the coordination of the joints as they move together. 

Step 4 : Manual muscle testing and stress points - When we challenging different muscles and stress points, we gain information about the strength, connection and responsiveness between your brain and body.  The information gathered allows us to custom tailor our care to facilitate your needs for evolving results.

Step 5 : Orthopedic & Neurological tests – Every individual that walks through our doors will have a unique and specific health request or health goal.  We will take the time to find the root cause of your patterns and perform appropriate tests that will lead us to the cause and specific pattern your body is exhibiting.  We will perform tests specific to each area of the body to understand the health of the tissues and the role these areas play in the overall state of functional health.

Step 6 : Palpation - Chiropractors have trained their hands to be some of the most sensitive tools in healthcare. We will scan your body through palpation and identify areas of imbalance and stored tension. You may be surprised how soothing it feels just to be checked by such gentle and specific hands

Step 7 : Chiropractic Specific Analysis – Chiropractors are trained to analyze the nervous system and assess any indicators of an imbalance. To assess this we analyze tone.
