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 practice member’s unique needs, they use sEMG, Thermography, Digital Posture Analysis and X-ray, when necessary.
Chiropractic is an important part of a healthy lifestyle! Chiropractic promotes an increased quality of life through proper function of the nervous system. Its philosophy teaches that health and life's functions can be altered by interferences to the nervous system. Physical, environmental, or emotional stresses can cause the interferences.
These stresses can create misalignments of the spine and cause tension of the meninges. Meninges are protective coverings that sheath the brain and spinal cord. They buffer the brain, spinal cord, and nerve roots from inside and outside compression. The spinal misaligns and meningeal tension will add further stress to the nervous system. This stress impairs the nervous system's opportunity to be at it's best in coordinating and guiding all the functions of your body.
Our goal is to help your body restore normal balance to the spine and release the interferences. The misalignment's of imbalances to the spine are called vertebral subluxations which can impair any of all functions of your body. We also help restore normal tone of the meningeal frame as a complement and stabilization to your spinal balance.
As chiropractors, we do not diagnose or treat disease. We can offer better function to your nervous system so your body has the improved ability to recuperate and heal. Your body not only has better opportunities at healing but also greater abilities to perform at any and all of life's functions.
Computer Aided Adjusting and Analysis - Pro-Adjuster 360
The Pro-Adjuster 360 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 Pro-Adjuster 360 by SIGMA Instruments 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. Once you experience it, you will never want anything else.
Mechanical Motion Therapy - MMT
MMT is a, doctor certified technology that is a combination of instrument technology coupled with simultaneous patient-assisted specific postures. This dual-motion therapy is the guiding principle of MMT. Specifically, dual-motion therapy is the treatment of a human being, with the patient actively participating in the treatment during the visit. It uses muscles, ligaments, joints, the nervous system and every other involved tissue component which may have an effect on individual results. During MMT, the patient moves in a very specific motion pattern while the MMT Specialist directs the instrument in a prescribed manner. This allows the doctor to utilize exactly the right amount of tension and force upon the tissues as the treatment is applied.
Therapeutic Laser Therapy For Acute and Chronic Conditions
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. Therapeutic 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.
