We provide specialized spinal corrections utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques for both the spine and extremities. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Dr. Ro and Dr. Scott, have a combined 50 years of experience in spinal and extremity adjustments. To better serve each patients unique needs, they use sEMG, Thermography, Digital Range of Motion, Digital Posture Analysis and Digital X-ray, when necessary to better diagnose and treat each patient.
The SIGMA Ultralign provides a precise, gentle and preferred advanced, computer-assisted instrument-based assessment and treatment approach unprecedented in the Chiropractic profession. The key to the therapeutic response is the precise, quantified, and reproducible low force, resonant percussive impulses that are delivered to the tissue by the treatment head. The SIGMA Instrument can be used for spinal, extremity, and soft tissue treatments. This technique offers patients a very low force option for treatment without being twisted, cracked, or popped like some traditional methods.
We offer the most advanced Class IV therapeutic laser available today, Laser therapy is an innovative drug-free and surgery-free solution. It delivers advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing for both acute and chronic conditions.
Laser therapy works by stimulating production of cellular energy in damaged cells and by enhancing the cell membrane permeability. This promotes the speed and the quality of healing, enhances the exchange of nutrients and wastes across the cell membrane and improves elasticity of injured tissues. Laser therapy also modulates pain and reduces inflammation. It can be used immediately on acute injuries, over broken skin and over metal implants. Laser therapy enhances the rate and quality of healing of acute injuries and can help with the resolution of chronic complaints such as arthritis. K-Laser treatments will significantly decrease your pain and inflammation, while dramatically accelerating the healing of your unique injury.

Computerized Postural Analysis
We use the latest computerized postural analysis to detect any abnormalities in your posture, after all, function follows structure, in other words, restore the structure (your spine/posture, function/health will follow) This test involves taking two-four photographs, after the analysis is performed by our doctors, the software detects additional forces placed on the neck or lower back, and weight distribution. Most importantly, it records a posture number which is then used to determine the extent of the abnormality. It’s estimated for every inch the head moves forward from the neutral position, it requires the exertion of 15-30 pounds of extra muscle tension. This extra muscle tension is transmitted down the spine, increasing chronic loading on the vertebrae and discs. This test helps us determine the best treatment approach to use and helps us monitor our patients progress. This also helps in determining what specific exercises we may prescribe to help facilitate your recovery.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health. We make it very easy for you, we will customize a rehabilitative program recommended for your specific needs and email it to you, including video's on how to perform them correctly in the privacy of your own home.
Electric Muscle Stimulation and Ultrasound Therapy
Most people have heard about ultrasound, but few understand the number of applications for its use. Therapeutic ultrasound can be used to reduce edema, promote tissue and fracture healing, reduce pain and muscle spasms, increase range of motion, and remodel collagen. Electrical Stimulations (E-stim) uses the strategic placement of electrodes to apply electrical current to specific muscles. E-stim can be used for neuro-muscular reeducation, decreasing pain and edema, decreasing atrophy and muscle spasms while increasing range of motion. In some cases, we use combined modalities to maximize results.
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. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? We can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
