At Chiropractic Plus, we have a basic philosophy that your pain or your injury affects your body as a whole, so we treat your body as a whole – not just your symptoms (like with medication) and not just your painful/injured spot or region (like with more exclusive treatments or like with surgery).
The following therapies (all based on science and research) work with each other in a combination that has been specifically tailored to you as an individual. Your treatment program will depend on how acute or chronic your pain is, how severe your pain is, what type of injury you sustained, what treatments you can tolerate, and what will give us the best results. Further, your program can be adapted to how you respond to the initial series of treatments to promote the best recovery possible.
After our initial examination and assessment, we will apply our expertise in developing the ideal treatment for you. We want to find out what’s causing the pain, treat it, and work to prevent the pain from coming back.

Essential Chiropractic Techniques
As a foundational therapy, we offer adjustments to help your spine in a couple of ways: increase the mobility of your joints and decrease strain on your ligaments and nerves. We manipulate the spine, arms, and legs as well as reposition the vertebrae. Chiropractic adjustments offer great potential to alleviate pain and promote healing, and there are very few adverse effects. In addition to the basic adjustment, we perform cervical traction, which helps to alleviate pressure being placed on the neck.
You need your muscles to be flexible, strengthened, and coordinated to function properly; stretching and targeted exercising after an injury can get them back to a recovered and healthy state. We also promote maintaining a healthy body weight and getting proper nutrition (like adequate vitamins and minerals) to encourage optimum health. Educating you in all these areas is a key part of what we offer – and what sets us apart from other care providers.
Active Release Technique (ART)
ART can be used for a number of ailments and injuries. It is a massage technique that helps issues with soft tissue like muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. We often apply ART on patients with headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow, among other issues. ART offers the potential for quick and permanent recovery.
Like Active Release Technique, this therapy works very well on soft tissue. It combines a diagnostic element along with the treatment itself. Aided with the Graston Technique’s patented instrumentation, we locate the area of your body that is damaged (like with scar tissue or inflammation) and work on the affected part (i.e., we break down the scar tissue). The goal is to ease your pain, increase your mobility, and improve the function of the affected area.
This therapy also combines diagnosis and treatment in a single technique and works well for patients with back, neck, and extremity problems. It applies repetitive movement to aid in healing and ease of symptoms by focusing between your vertebrae. If you have difficulty with the movements on your own (due to your injury or trauma, or for other reasons of limited mobility), the McKenzie Method offers its signature REPEX machine to do the movements for you.
This therapy is a great option for rehabilitation, especially following injuries (like from sports). It is the preferred technique for taping and uses a special, patented tape to treat conditions related to neuromuscular ailments.
Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers / Foot Levelers
By giving your feet – and in particular your arches – the support they need, stability is transferred up to the entire body, which helps in a number of ways. Orthotics like Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers and Foot Levelers (all custom made for you) give you a good foundation for spinal health – from the ground up. This therapeutic element gives you increased stability, balance, and support, all serving to help decrease your pain and promote rehabilitation.
We also offer the following supplemental therapies to round out your recovery program:
- Muscle Stimulation
- Intersegmental Traction
- Moist Heat
