Our ultimate goal is to find the reason why you hurt, help you fix it and get stronger so it stays that way, and get you on with the rest of your life! Pain relief is the most important goal of almost every patient in our care. Our goals for our patients go beyond immediate pain relief and strive to correct the underlying dysfunction that is causing the pain. With a thorough exam we will find the reason your are hurting and not moving as you should. Once we get you feeling better with massage and chiropractic adjustments we will focus on correcting muscular imbalances and tissue healing with specific physical therapy exercises to make your body strong enough that you do not need to keep coming for care.
