Chiropractic spinal adjustments are primarily divided into two categories, force and non – force. I primarily use non – force techniques as I have found over the years that the same or better results can be achieved with a gentle approach toward improving spinal function. Chiropractic adjustments are a foundational item I offer to all our patients as it assists in improving the function of your nervous system which is considered the master control system of the body. It’s improved function will also potentially assist your immune, digestive, musculo-skeletal, reproductive and hormonal systems.

Nutritional Medicine

I utilize a Functional Medicine approach toward helping your body heal a chronic condition. This approach focuses on identifying and treating several key items that frequently are basic reasons as to why the body is in a state of disease. Central to this approach is having patients improve their diet by reducing their intake of packaged/manufactured foods and increasing their intake of whole foods.

Functional Neurology

As a board certified chiropractic neurologist, I look to identify and treat the various parts of the nervous system that are not working at an optimal level. I start with a good functional neurologic evaluation of your nervous system and then look to start making immediate beneficial changes. As your nervous system controls and regulates all other systems of your body, it’s improved function can be central to regaining your health as quickly as possible.
