Chiropractic Care

Not only does your spine structurally support your frame, but the spinal cord also houses the main nerve bundles that run from your brain to every part of your body. If your spine is out of alignment, it can cause a whole host of issues, from tense muscles to nerves misfiring. We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic techniques that are safe, comfortable and designed to work with your body naturally in the quest to achieve healing and pain relief. Chiropractic adjustment can reduce symptoms from disease, get rid of chronic headaches, help with neck or back pain and prevent future injuries.

Advanced Activator Technique

Dr. Salmi is trained to work with Activator Method to help treat neck pain, back pain and headaches. The small, handheld instrument is designed to deliver a gentle impulse force to a specific area of the spine to help restore motion to that vertebrae or joint. This is an alternative to the high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust that we believe gives us more precision and control in your treatment.

Massage Therapy

Not only does massage therapy feel good, but it really is good for you. We commonly pair massage therapy with other treatments to help your muscles relax and lose the built up tension. Tight muscles can pull on joints or bones, causing misalignments and injury. The deep tissue massage increases the blood flow while naturally preventing inflammation.

Traction Therapy

When the spinal cord is compressed, it can compress the spinal nerves and create disc disease, spinal arthritis and pinched nerve pain. Traction is a therapy used to stretch out your spine and give relief to the nerves housed there. The gentle traction therapy is not painful and you are fully clothed during the procedure. A special table or pulley system will be used to help you reduce the weight from your spinal cord, allowing discs to slip back into place.

Home Exercise Programs

Working out is sometimes hard to fit in and difficult to get started on, but it is so good for your body! We highly encourage many of our patients to fulfill a workout regimen at home. Talk to your chiropractor about the quick and convenient ways you can work out in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

Computerized Spinal Analysis

Our state-of-the-art technology allows us to quickly and efficiently review your case. We pride ourselves on offering exact and fast analysis to get you on the road to better health and well being!

Customized Foot Orthotics

Our state of the art 3D foot scan provide customized orthotics to promote optimum posture and enhance and secure chiropractic adjustments. They help those suffering from plantar fasciitis, bunions, shin splints, pain while standing or walking, and more. You can get orthotics for any type of shoe or activity from work boots to dress shoes or sandals.

Comprehensive Case History Reviews

We know your health is important to you, and we believe patients should understand their own struggles and treatment options. We provide you with case history reviews to provide comprehensive plans in your care.

Personalized Patient Care Plans

Our patients differ in their physical needs as much as they do in their personalities and lifestyles. We offer the care plan that is designed specifically for you. You can rest easy knowing that your professional care is planned out with only you in mind.
