A Healthier You
a balanced, holistic approach to a healthier lifestyle
Chiropractic is not just about relieving pain; it’s about enhancing even the seemingly healthy person’s function, performance, and quality of life. Chiropractic looks at not only the structural but the mental, emotional, and nutritional side of wellness.
Chiropractic care ensures that the spine works properly to maximize normal nerve flow and minimize pressure on the nervous system from stress and postural strain or injury, leading to pain, dysfunction, and decreased quality of life.

Spinal Decompression Therapy
This nonsurgical technique can relieve back pain, leg pain, and other symptoms associated with disc bulges, disc herniations, and other disorders of the spine. It works by gently imposing a traction or “pulling” force on both ends of the spine, either with a specialized mechanical device or with our chiropractor’s hands.
Chiropractic care can help
Treat the Following Conditions
A trigger point injection can help soothe muscle pain, especially in your arms, legs, lower back, and neck. It also can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and myofascial pain. Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles. They form when a muscle can’t relax. Sometimes you can feel these knots when you rub your muscle. Injecting small amounts of an all-natural, plant-based anti-inflammatory and pain reliever into the trigger point can help alleviate the pain.
REVOLUTIONARY, NONINVASIVE TREATMENT
SoftWave Therapy is a revolutionary, noninvasive treatment that uses patented shockwave technology to bring unprecedented advantages in sports and regenerative medicine. Its TRT OrthoGold 100 model has been scientifically validated as the only Unfocused Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) device available- offering immediate relief of chronic pain with sustained results, freely moving joints and muscles! Transform your health today with this innovative therapy option.
The TRT OrthoGold 100 SoftWave is the only Unfocused Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) device available today that offers these transformational benefits:
An increase in blood flow has been linked to a beneficial release of various immune factors and increased ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate – an energy-carrying molecule found in cells) that leads to the growth of new blood vessels at the treatment site.
Scientifically validated to help the body heal
Softwave is scientifically validated to help the body start to truly heal within by activating and recruiting endogenous stem cell production (these cells help activate tissue repair and regeneration resulting in homeostasis)
Breakthrough method of shock-wave generation
Immediate shutdown of inflammation at the treatment site, leading to sustained relief from chronic pain for patients. In addition, there’s a considerable improvement of range motion reported with this therapy.
TRANSFORM YOUR HEALTH TODAY!
Softwave Therapy has been independently proven to be a powerful treatment for damaged bone and muscle-related issues. Impressive results show that over 91% of patients have seen dramatic improvements in their health conditions!
SoftWave Therapy is an excellent option for patients who want to avoid surgery, downtime during recovery, prescriptions, or painful injections. Softwave Therapy works with your body to activate your own stem cells without the need for aggressive procedures.
BREAKS UP CALCIFICATION
Trauma to the tendons can cause chronic pain and reduce mobility, but shockwave pulses effectively break up calcification that is common in the affected area. This is beneficial as it reduces discomfort and helps restore function by breaking down calcified fibroblasts into small particles that are more easily absorbed by your body to help restore function and reduce pain.
BOOST COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
SoftWave Therapy uses hydroelectric shockwaves to stimulate collagen production in the body, allowing it to heal injuries with its own natural resources! This revolutionary treatment helps activate stem cells which produce new blood vessels and regenerate healthy tissue for effective injury recovery.
