We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.
Neuropathy essentially means "an abnormal and degenerative condition of the nervous system".
Neuropathy may be diffuse, by affecting many parts of the body, or, focal, affecting a single specific nerve or part of the body.
The two categories of Diffuse Neuropathy are: Peripheral Neuropathy, affecting the hands and feet, and Autonomic Neuropathy, affecting the internal organs.
This is the most common type; damaging the nerves of the limbs, especially the feet affecting both sides of the body.
Common symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy are:
- Numbness or insensitivity to pain or temperature
- Tingling, burning or prickling sensations
- Sharp pains or cramps (or like walking on sponges)
- Extreme sensitivity to touch, even light touch
- Loss of balance and coordination
Most of these symptoms are often worse at night.
