HOW CAN WE HELP?
DIVERSIFIED CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTING TECHNIQUES
A high velocity, low amplitude thrust is performed to one or more restricted vertebrae of the spine. Adjustments are a safe and noninvasive procedure used by chiropractors to restore joint range of motion and increase mobility.

INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION THERAPY (IASTM)
The most commonly known IASTM is Graston, although there are now a number of similar tools. The majority of these tools are surgical stainless steel. The most common tissue that IASTM targets is scar tissue and fascia. The tools help to break up adhesions and restore motion and function.
Cupping Therapy is an ancient alternative medicine therapy that utilizes special “cups” to create suction in specific locations of the body to increase blood flow, decrease pain and reduce deep tissue inflammation within the body.
CUSTOMIZED, EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION AND REHABILITATION PROGRAMS
Exercise is one of the most important things for our body. Physical activity can not only help reduce the chances of stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancers, but it can also help prevent joint and muscle pain.
Proper instruction on exercises and rehabilitation can provide patients with the tools to help themselves get out of pain and to prevent injuries in the future. Exercise is shown to help develop thicker cartilage in joints, and build strength in stabilizing muscles to help reduce joint reaction forces.
Dr. Samantha is recognized by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) as a Webster Certified Chiropractor. Webster’s Technique is a special technique for pregnant women that addresses alignment and function of the pelvis.
