We Are Specialists In These Areas

General Chiropractic

A natural form of health care utilizing spinal and joint adjustments to correct malfunctioning vertebrae, joints, muscles, and most importantly the nervous system. If even one spinal vertebrae or other joint are in improper position or have decreased mobility, however slight, proper function is compromised usually causing discomfort. If left untreated, one area of disfunction will cascade into multiplying areas of compensation resulting in pain. A Chiropractic Adjustment helps restore proper position and function of a joint to relieve pain, stabilize joints, balance the muscular system, and promote optimal body function.

Sports Medicine

We take a holistic approach to treating sports injuries, employing multiple techniques to maximize an athlete’s potential or promote healing after an injury. The specific treatment will depend upon individual circumstances.

Nutrition

Hippocrates, the Greek physician in the year 440 BC said, “Let food be thy medicine and let thy medicine be food”. Food can make us sick or make us well. Often natural foods can be used to heal the body of early-stage disease(s). Whether your goal is to boost energy, lose weight, improve digestion, prevent disease, or even clear up skin, simple but effective diet changes can be exponentially powerful. In a case of more advanced disease, whole food-based nutritional supplements that support the body’s interrelated systems are often recommended. Rather than simply treating the symptoms, whole food supplements target the underlaying issue correcting the problem and restoring optimal health.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a 2,500 year old Chinese system of natural healing (no drugs, no surgery) that focuses on restoring proper energy flow to the organs, glands and other tissues of the body. If there is a disruption in the transmission of this energy or life force (ch’i), then organ malfunction, disease, pain and suffering are inevitable. We offer traditional needle, without needle, and electrical acupuncture as well as cupping, Gua Sha, and moxibustion therapies.

Pediatric Chiropractic

Our pediatric chiropractic treatments work in harmony with a child’s natural development to ensure their spines are perfectly aligned, which in turn promotes proper physical and mental development. All our healthcare professionals have undergone specialized training in treating children to alleviate a wide range of symptoms.

Women’s Health

Our chiropractic experts offer a range of treatments to address problems that are unique to women. Pregnancy and the postpartum period can be traumatic for the body, and the gentle, non-invasive methods that are characteristic of chiropractic care can ease discomfort. Beyond pregnancy-related care, our practitioners also help women with issues such as premenstrual syndrome and menstrual cramps.

Custom Foot Orthotics

Foot Orthotics (also known as shoe inserts or arch supports) are a medical appliance that fit into a person’s footwear. They are designed to support the feet and improve posture. They can lift and/or support an arch as well as stabilize the heel.

For example, postural collapse of the foot results in a flattening of the arch. If left untreated this often leads to undesirable changes in the function of the foot, knee, hip and low back joints. This change in function can be an underlying cause of Plantar Fasciitis as well as other pain throughout the body.

Accurately capturing your feet in their ideal posture is what makes a custom orthotic so superior to a generic orthotic while still working with virtually any shoe type.

Dr. Stephenson will take the time to evaluate your feet and stride to cast the best orthotic for each individual’s needs.

Allergies/Sinus Management

Many individuals are unable or do not wish to take medication for allergies or sinus problems and instead choose natural healing methods. Dr. Stephenson uses a combination of chiropractic care, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling to provide relief from nasal, sinus, and allergy symptoms.

Chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture promote drainage, clear the nasal passages, and reduce blockage as well as strengthening the immune system. When your immune system is supported and calm, allergic reactions will lessen naturally, without the need to take harmful medication on a daily basis.

Chiropractic and acupuncture can also decrease the levels of histamine and cortisol reducing allergies related to environmental factors such as dust, dander, pet hair, pollen, etc.

Nutrition recommendations are also considered. Whether it is finding and eliminating certain foods that trigger allergies or suggesting a nutritional supplement to support your body.
