Spinal manipulation to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury, chronic postural deficits, muscle imbalances, or trauma produces a neurological response which effectively increases range of motion, inhibits pain, and creates a 230_iStock_000020109655Mediumhealthy environment for fixing the initial cause of the pain in the first place.

Massage Therapy:

Muscle and joint paint is almost always accompanied by muscle Hypertonicity, spasm, overactivity, and general muscle dysfunction.

Health and disease prevention are largely the result of healthy living, but the healthcare system does not focus on lifestyle changes or the underlying causes of disease. Functional medicine physicians teach their patients to make lifestyle changes that are essential to their future well being. The physician will identify and heal underlying clinical imbalances of chronic disease, creating momentum towards health.

Clinical nutrition:

All pharmaceutical drugs were developed by taking something found in nature and multiplying its effects hundreds or thousands of times. The problem with this is that our bodies were not meant to handle these complex drugs and hence, we have side effects. Clinical nutrition attempts to solve the same problems and disease as medicine, through supplementation, science, and nutritional recommendations.
