Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you?

Pregancy and Pediatric Care

Chiropractic care has a powerful impact on children and infants. Just like adults, children also experience many traumatic events and forces throughout their lives that can cause improper joint function. Some of these include: childbirth, falls, accidents, sports, heavy backpacks, etc. Children receiving regular chiropractic adjustments have strengthened immune systems, fewer behavioral problems, and sleep better. The adjustments allow the spine and nervous system to grow and develop optimally and reduce future health problems. To learn more please visit
