“Functional Chiropractic” focuses on movement and function of the body as a whole. It uses movement tests to assess and evaluate your movement- your muscle and joint motion. Then we combine low force chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue treatments, and exercises to get you back to the activities you enjoy to help you stay healthy.
