Manipulation under anesthesia involves a team comprised of an anesthesiologist, primary chiropractor/surgeon/physician, and an assisting chiropractic/physician. The primary practitioner will perform a combination of specific passive stretches, short lever manipulations, and articular and postural kinesthetic maneuvers while the patient is under general anesthesia. This is often coupled with mild sedation.

Medical Massage:

Medical massage seeks to reduce a patient’s inflammation and pain and decrease muscle spasm and dysfunction. Depending on the condition, the physical therapist may use multiple procedures or modalities. These techniques can include deep tissue, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, positional release, or strain/counterstrain.


This procedure is used to determine if a patient has suffered nerve damage or injury. It is often done in conjunction with an electromyography (EMG) to help a physician determine whether a problem is occurring between the nerves or the muscles. This facilitates proper diagnostics and directs the appropriate treatment plan.

Posture Correction:

Learning correct posture involves training the body to sit, stand, lie, and walk in positions that keep the muscles and joints in balance and place the least strain on ligaments. Depending on the severity of the poor posture, properly training the body to have correct posture can be challenging.

Trigger Point Injections:

Trigger point injections are used to treat active trigger points. The pain of active trigger points is “referred.” This means that while there is tenderness at the origin of the trigger point, the pain is felt in another area.

Spinal Decompression:

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive and drug-free option which can treat pain resulting from degenerative discs, posterior facet syndrome, and disc herniation.

Ultrasound Therapy:

This method uses sound waves at a high frequency to stimulate tissue in the body, break down scar tissue, reduce pain, and promote healing.
