Offering a wide range of health and wellness modalities.
Functional neurology focuses on assessing the brain and its vast pathways, then using the brain’s ability to adapt, learn and change to improve the brain’s overall function. This is known as neuroplasticity. This method is commonly used to reduce the severity and in some cases resolve conditions like recurring or persistent vertigo/dizziness, as well as post-concussion syndrome symptoms. Other neurological based dysfunctions like dysautonomia, a dysfunction of the nerves that regulate involuntary body functions, such as heart rate, blood pressure, and sweating may be addressed with this method, as many neurological cases require co-management with a medical physician and/or a neurologist.
A functional neurological approach can also be utilized to enhance the body’s response to conventional treatment. This is accomplished by utilizing eye movements and various reflexes in the body to accomplish things like abating muscle spasms or enhancing movement patterns to increase the efficiency of an exercise. Typically, this add-on to conventional exercise helps with chronic/persistent musculoskeletal conditions.
Massage Therapy is a very useful tool which helps relieve pain, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, rehabilitate sports injuries, increase relaxation, and aid general wellness. Massage therapy is best used in conjunction with Chiropractic care, in order to help relieve any tight muscles in the body, which will help make the chiropractic adjustments more effective.
In more general terms, Massage therapy is used to improve soft tissue circulation while decreasing hypertonicity and breaking up connective tissue adhesions and/or trigger points. This is accomplished by elongating shortened or contracted muscles through the utilization of specific massage therapy techniques including but not limited to effleurage, petrissage, and tapotement.

Mechanical Traction / Flexion Distraction
Our Hill Air Flex II Table is a wonderful tool for helping with cervical and lumbar spine complaints including loss of disc space / spinal segmental compression and disc herniation, as well as muscle tension in the lumbar and cervical spine. This special table uses compressed air to provide localized traction to open the spinal segments to improve movement of the spine. The table also allows for flexion and lateral movements of the lumbar spine to further reduce the size of disc herniations and, with additional overpressure by the practitioner, release overactive musculature.
