The Graston Technique is a revolutionary technique for instrument-aided delicate tissue therapy that is utilized to deal with scar tissue framing in muscles, tendons, and ligaments that can prompt discomfort and limited range of motion. The Graston Technique permits the Chiropractor to distinguish and treat these territories using a stainless steel instrument that skims along the patient's tissue, separating these confinements and adhesions.
The Graston Technique is extremely viable for some conditions, including plantar fascitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder and sciatica. This strategy has astounding brings about forestalling intense conditions structure getting perpetual and switching the conclusion of conditions once thought to be changeless. If you are in discomfort or pain or are experiencing limitations in movement, call our office and ask whether you can benefit from this new, successful treatment method.
Active Release Technique
Active Release Techniques ® (ART) treatment is a hands-on case-management system that allows us to diagnose and treat soft tissue injuries. When trauma occurs, whether from surgery, accident, postural distortion or repetitive strain, the body’s natural response is the formation of scar tissue. Scarring has a detrimental effect, causing tissues to adhere to themselves as well as to other related structures. Adhesions are responsible for the vast number of aches and pains that occur. Active Release Techniques ® Soft Tissue Management Systems are very specific treatment protocols directed at removing the adhesions at virtually every structure of the musculoskeletal system. The main concept is to reestablish motion between fascial planes thus reducing fibrous adhesions and reestablishing neural and myofascial glide between tissues. Freeing the structures from entrampments and allowing them to return to their full range of motion, restoring biomechanical stability and function.
The Kinesio Taping® method has taken the rehabilitation and sports medicine world by storm. Developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 30 years ago, Kinesio Taping has become the gold standard for therapeutic rehabilitative taping. This proprietary method of taping uses a uniquely designed and patented tape for treatment of muscular disorders and lymphoedema reduction.
The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions. Both the Kinesio® Taping method and the training protocol have shown results that would have been unheard of using older methods and materials.
The slightest misalignments of muscles and bones in your feet can result in a great deal of discomfort. Custom fitted orthotics help restore the normal balance and alignment of your body and bring relief from fatigue and pain.

Dr. Sarah will assess and determine if Custom Foot Orthotics would be beneficial for you. Dr. Sarah will also provide any referrals, paperwork and biomechanical assessments needed for your insurance company.
We Use Computerized Gait Scan
This Dynamic 3D scan assesses pressure points in the feet during standing and walking. The scan will allow your healthcare practitioner to better assess the need for orthotic therapy.
K-Laser Therapy is proven to biostimulate tissue repair and growth. The Laser accelerates wound healing and decreases inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. In the management of chronic pain Class IV Laser Therapy can provide dramatic results, is non-addictive and virtually free of side effects.
Has the effectiveness of K-Laser Therapy been demonstrated scientifically?
Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of K-Laser Therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.
Cellular Effects of K-Laser Therapy
During K-Laser Therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.
K-Laser Therapy Therapeutic Effects
During each painless treatment laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
