Active Therapeutic Movement
Active Therapeutic Movements (ATM®s) provide immediate and long-lasting benefits to many back, neck, shoulder, pelvis, hip, and knee sufferers. By definition ATMs consist of active neuromuscular movements superimposed upon a specific passive holding. ATMs aim to immediately alter symptoms, by affecting the Central Nervous System (CNS) control. The ATM2 is a clinical tool designed to enable effective user operated ATMs.
ATM provides clinicians the practical ability to perform integrated passive and active therapy for musculoskeletal disorders. This approach aims to normalize movement impairments that are related to the patients’ complaints, as detected during a functional examination. Using this approach, reevaluation is constantly monitored while the technique is performed to ensure a symptom free environment. Body areas are mobilized until pain is eliminated. These techniques are performed in the functional weight bearing position, and are continuously monitored to ensure that they are pain free throughout the intervention.
Care During Pregnancy
Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?
There are no reasons to suggest chiropractic care during pregnancy is not safe for you and your baby, and all chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant. During pregnancy, it is possible you may suffer from an increased back curve, pelvic changes, and postural changes which all affect your well-being. We employ the Webster Technique, which has been shown to not only help with pelvic misalignment, but also improves the condition of a baby in breech position.

What is Golf Fitness?
Golf fitness isn’t about looking like a bodybuilder or the best player on Tour. It’s about being fit to play the game at an individual’s highest level and doing so without causing injury. It’s about understanding how a body’s limitations can influence the golf swing and how to address those limitations through the proper channels; whether it’s through swing instruction, physical rehabilitation or strength and conditioning exercise. It’s about understanding the latest technology and how that technology can be implemented to increase performance.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
At our office we don’t mask pain with medication. We also do whatever we can to get our patients out of pain without surgery. For these reasons, we have invested in a spinal decompression table. For low back pain and/or neck pain, we see decompression therapy aid in improving pain and quality of life for our patients every day.
What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a modern, non-surgical traction procedure that effectively treats low back, neck, and radiating leg and arm pain. This type of traction is very successful in relieving pain associated with spinal disc herniation, degenerative spinal discs, and facet joint syndromes. Spinal decompression therapy decompresses spinal discs and facet joints by utilizing traction, distraction, and body positioning.
Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers and technicians at major teaching hospitals. Studies have shown that the spinal disc injury is responsible for a significant number of lumbar/leg pain and neck/arm pain syndromes. Excessive compression forces from daily activities increases internal spinal disc pressure which can lead to spinal disc protrusion, herniation, and bulging of disc material.
