Our Chiropractic Physicians treat back pain, knee pain (all joint pain) and auto-accident injuries focusing on Neuromuscular Therapy using the spine as the first step to health & wellness.
When the neuromuscular and neurological approach is maximized and there are still unresolved pain or disfunction, our Interventional Pain Medicine team offers more aggressive treatments that include only the necessary prescription drugs and surgical options. Many problems related to neurological interference are not recognized as being based on neurology, like high blood pressure. We must address the neurological component of disease first.
Doctors of chiropractic (DCs) are used by all 32 professional football teams. DCs treat neuromusculoskeletal strain injuries, including neck and back pain, hamstring and quadriceps strains and whiplash injuries, helping to lower the overuse of opioids and other prescription pain medications.

“Reduced odds of surgery were observed for…those whose first provider was a chiropractor. 42.7% of workers [with back injuries] who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor.”
–Keeney et al (2012), Spine
What is a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC)?
Doctors of Chiropractic – also referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are perhaps best known for their expertise in the use of spinal manipulation; however, they are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, and to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
