Mobilization of joints and soft tissue. This covers the full spectrum of peripheral joints (shoulders, elbow, hands, wrists, hips, knees, ankles and toes) and the spine (neck, back and pelvis), muscles, ligaments, fascia, nerves and viscera.


Applying academics, evidence based research, principles of physiology and clinical experience our specialized clinicians implement therapeutic exercises to address any musculoskeletal imbalances, restore function and resolve symptoms.

Education & Correction

Posture is a variable that has a direct correlation with symptoms and dysfunction. We educate our clients on the why’s and how’s of posture correction, give them activities to practice improving their posture and they create new habits.

Body Mechanics

Teaching individuals how to apply clinically sound principles in posture to daily activities and work related activities. This is an important component of preventive medicine and can be the key to one’s recovery.


Electricity is typically applied for pain inhibition, muscle stimulation/contraction, inhibition of overly active muscles, stimulate the flow of electrolytes and blood, reduce edema and stimulate tissue healing.


Electricity can also be used to push medication through your skin into the affected tissue. This is called iontophoresis and is most commonly coupled with steroid anti-inflammatories.


Sound waves have been found to be an effective modality for stimulating localized circulation, reducing inflammation and edema, facilitating wound and connective tissue healing and in some instances can be applied to stimulate bone growth.


The use of Ultrasound to drive medication more rapidly into the affected tissue is most commonly applied with topical steroid anti-inflammatory.


A newer modality that is growing in popularity. It the non-thermal application of light (photons) to the soft/connective tissue in the body. Evidence supports that this modality can reduce inflammation and pain as well as stimulate soft tissue healing.

Laser Guided

Laser technology is applied to specific body regions to both analyze movement, correct aberrant movement and restore pain free functional motion. The laser provides a visual cue of deviations from a healthy pattern of motion.


The application of manual or mechanical traction to decompress the spine. Peripheral joint decompression is also available as a treatment technique and is usually applied manually.
