X-rays: If x-rays are necessary to ascertain effective treatment, we can make sure the proper studies are performed. We can also recommend other special studies like MRI's, CAT scans, and nerve conduction velocity testing to facilitate the most accurate diagnosis.

Personalized Nutritional Coaching: Rebuilding the Temple (Your Body), Simply stated, "We Are What We Eat." Often, the difference between regaining health and remaining ill is the patient's eating and drinking habits. During your initial consultation, we will ask specific questions to determine if you require special nutritional advice. This is a critically important part of your chiropractic care. Once this important information is obtained, we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients' return to optimal health. Maintaining a healthy diet and weight contributes to good spine health and freedom from chronic pain. We can design a nutritional program for you that gets you to the proper weight and maintain it over time. Minimize your risk of developing serious illness such as heart disease, stroke, fibromyalgia, diabetes and cancer.

Personalized Activities of Daily Living, Lifestyle Choices & Changes and Wellness Coaching:
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most.

Personalized Ergonomic Work Place Stretches and Exercise Coaching:
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) affect the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, ligaments and tendons. Workers in many different industries and occupations can be exposed to risk factors at work, such as lifting heavy items, bending, reaching overhead, pushing and pulling heavy loads, working in awkward body postures and performing the same or similar tasks repetitively. Exposure to these known risk factors for MSDs increases a worker's risk of injury. /span> Work-related MSDs can be prevented. Ergonomics --- fitting a job to a person --- helps lessen muscle fatigue, increases productivity and reduces the number and severity of work-related injuries.
