Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the nervous system and the musculo-skeletal system.
Chiropractors practice a manual approach.
Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine, often before the patient is even aware they exist.
More often than not, when we tell someone that we are a chiropractic office, they immediately associate our vocation with neck and/or back pain. What many do not realize, however, is that chiropractic is a health care modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain.
Chiropractic is a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness, including exercise, nutrition, personal development, and stress relief. We have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life (including newborns, children, and adolescents) and the outcome has been miraculous.
Acupuncture is an ancient and tried-and-true method to helping relax, stimulate and heal the body.
First performed by the Chinese dynasties, this service involves small needles being placed into the skin in different areas of the body.
Acupuncture is used to help relieve headaches, knee pain, back pain, blood pressure issues, various viruses and much more.
The needles are inserted to various depths based on the treatment protocols for each individual issue. This process offers little to no discomfort during the insertion of the needles.
One of the best things about acupuncture is that there are no side effects. When performed properly by a trained professional, you'll find relief from your pain or issues and will be back to feeling well in a short amount of time from the treatment.

If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously. Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or even months to manifest, it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as seriously injured as you really are.
Symptoms from a car accident and whiplash can include anything from radiating pain into the shoulder, elbow pain, wrist pain or hand pain, lower back pain, headaches, jaw pain and more.
Low Back Pain
Most people consider whiplash to be an injury of the neck. However, the lower back is also commonly injured as well. In fact, low back pain is found in more than half of rear impact collisions in which injury was reported, and almost three-quarters of all side-impact crashes.
This is mostly due to the fact that the low back still experiences a tremendous compression.

Your Feet Tell a Story
Feet have an amazing affect on your body and the way you feel.
Standing, walking, running and so much more all begins with your feet planted on the ground. All your weight is transferred through your feet. So it only makes sense that many issues, including back issues can stem from your feet.
One way to prevent injury and pain, not only to your feet, but to your legs, back, and rest of your body is to have the proper support under your feet and in your shoes.
Foot Levelers custom orthotics are the solution.
Foot Levelers orthotics are built specifically to each and every foot to ensure that you get the maximum support to prevent any issues.
Our team measures and performs tests to determine the shape and size of your foot and where you put the most pressure. From there, we order a custom built orthotic insert that fits into your shoe and allows you to feel better and suffer from less pain and issues due to improper foot support.
