Chiropractic care is a safe and effective approach to healing and restoring the function of the body. Your chiropractor will use their hands to find misalignments within the spinal column. These misalignments are often times what causes the pain and dysfunction that you might present with. The doctor will then correct that misalignment with a gentle thrust. Dr. Julie and Dr. Bret also sometimes use instruments to make the same correction. Chiropractic care is for patients of all ages especially those developing and trying to reach milestones like infants.

If you have headaches, low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, wrist pain, sports injuries, numbness or tingling in your arms or legs, sciatica, TMJ or jaw dysfunction, migraines, bowel dysfunction you might benefit from chiropractic care. This includes pre-natal and post-natal care as well as pediatric and adolescent care.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is active mobilization of the soft tissues that help us maintain posture and move. By addressing the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, ect.) we ensure that we have addressed the foundation (the spine) and the supporting structures (the soft tissues). Therapy is intended to be both relaxing and rehabilitative.
