Acupuncture is an old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine dating back over 4,000 years. It still remains effective today as a way to strengthen the body rather than merely treating symptoms. It is primarily used to relieve pain as well as treat other conditions. More than 3 million Americans and 200,000 children in the U.S. have had acupuncture to help relieve a symptom or condition. Because of its low side effects, it has been the treatment of choice for many doctors across the country. It is even more popular in other countries.
Chiropractic care is most often used to treat nervous system and musculoskeletal issues such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain and headaches. Our advanced chiropractic techniques are state-of-the-art with newer correction methods that are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. This approach is drug-free and involves hands-on care from certified physicians.

Ergonomics is the study of people at work and how the stressed of work affect the body. The goal of this type of study is to reduce stress on the body, prevent injuries, and eliminate musculoskeletal conditions associated with the daily tasks in the workplace. This can be done by making adjustments to work spaces, controls, tools, lighting, equipment, and displays to make sure they fit an employee’s needs and encourage proper movement and posture. Addressing ergonomics will help relieve pain, avoid injury, and encourage more efficient work.
