How We Are Unique
The bread and butter of what chiropractic was founded on. Creating motion in the joints that don't have adequate function. Adjustments can be rendered in many different ways to many different areas of the body. Dr. Jake has spent a lot of time learning different skills to treat many types of pain symptoms. Many of these techniques were obtained from the Motion Palpation Institute, a biomechanically superior, evidence-based, joint manipulation technique.
*NEW Class IV laser Therapy
We are now offering the class IV K-Laser in our office. Class IV lasers work by flooding the tissues with photons, energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain.
What can Deep Tissue Laser Therapy do for me?
- REBUILD - Heal faster after surgery or any traumatic injury.
- ENERGIZE - Reduces pain and improves range of motion without the use of drugs.
- INCREASED BLOOD FLOW - Application of laser light increases blood flow to traumatized areas. This improves oxygenation and helps remove toxins.
- EFFECTIVENESS - Effective against chronic problems such as arthritis and chronic back pain that are otherwise difficult to resolve.
Examples of the types of injuries that this kind of laser therapy can be helpful for include:
- Acute injuries, such as strains, sprains, and shoulder injuries.
- Repetitive-use injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.
- Traumatic injuries, such as post-motor vehicle accident with cervical strain/sprain, severe low back pain / disc herniations or sciatica.
- Chronic issues such as frozen shoulder, knee pain, hip pain, arthritis. This can even be used OVER SURGICAL IMPLANTS!
- Tissue repair - both new and old injuries including wound healing including diabetic ulcers and bed sores.
- Reduced muscular tension and trigger points.
- IMPROVED NERVE FUNCTION in peripheral neuropathies.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization is a technique that enables physicians and sports medicine practitioners to break down scar tissue and reduce fascial restrictions.
Fascia is a layer of connective tissue that covers everything in the body. It lies between the skin and muscle and penetrates deep into the muscle tissue while surrounding nerves, vessels, and organs.
Fascial restrictions come from sitting in prolonged postures, overuse (repetitive activities), or from a history of previous injury which would include surgery. Many times scars from surgeries, including c-sections, can result in pain in all areas of the body including the low back.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)
DNS is a powerful technique that focuses on proper muscle balance and joint function. DNS can be used to treat patients ranging from infants to aging adults, and has yielded amazing success with scoliosis, stroke cases, and cerebral palsy, as well as other developmental disabilities. Many professional and Olympic teams have even begun to utilize this technique for injury rehabilitation, injury prevention and in some cases to enhance performance.
This technique puts a lot of focus on core stability. New research is coming out confirming that deficiencies in core stability is the root cause of many different pains that patients are experiencing.
Just like adhesions in muscles, neural adhesions may cause pain and tingling. Nerve flossing uses a self-mobilization protocol to remove those adhesions to reduce pain and increase range of motion.
McKenzie Method (MDT)
MDT® is a specialized technique for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of neck and low back pain, especially a disc bulge or herniation, using repeated movements and patient education.
