A New Approach to Spine Care
Our approach to spinal care is integrative, emphasizing the patient's overall health and wellness. We recognize that many factors that can affect one's healing including but not limited to: exercise, diet, rest, environment, and heredity. Our providers offer integrative, non-surgical care, maximizing the body's inherent recuperative functions and restoring balance to the spine.
Our patients benefit from a team of spine specialists with education and training in exercise physiology, chiropractic, and medicine. They have post-doctoral certifications in kinesiotaping, IASTM, and nutrition. Patients are able to work with all our providers to receive the care that best suites their needs. From simple tune-up adjustments to complex integrated rehab programs or advanced regenerative medicine treatments, our clinicians are able to provide a number of non-surgical options to their patients.
We are happy to consult with you about your health care needs. If we believe that your condition can benefit from our care we will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan, discuss any associated risks, and consider alternatives prior to administering care. We set easily assessable outcome measures and will regularly reassess your progress while in our care. If your condition will not benefit from care or you are not responding to as anticipated, we will make the necessary referral.
