Kinesio Taping is a procedure that utilizes a special tape that helps to support chiropractic adjustments while still allowing for free range
of motion within the muscles. The tape is very thin and the wave like glue pattern allows the skin to be lifted from the affected area.

The majority of people are unaware that infants and children have just as much need for chiropractic care as adults due. Infants are
susceptible to a wide range of possible ailments related to slow or traumatic birth and c-sections. Children particularly need pediatric
chiropractic care as they age because a lot of the problems we experience as adults actually come from our childhood. Posture problems
particularly result from spending many hours in front of a computer or television or playing rough or carrying backpacks all day long at school.
Our staff is specially trained in Pediatric Chiropractic and can help to ensure a healthy spine during the critical growth process of your children.
Chiropractic care and massage therapy go hand-in-hand. Massages extend the benefits of a chiropractic adjustment. By getting a massage either
pre or post adjustment you will experience decreased muscle tension, increased flexibility and longer benefits from the adjustment. Just as
massage therapy extends the benefits of an adjustment, chiropractic care also extends the benefits of a massage. When you receive a massage without
an adjustment, you are more likely to go back to the massage therapist with similar complaints due to only temporary relief of the symptoms.
While both treatments have many benefits alone, they are much more effective and provide a more long-term and comprehensive benefits together.
