Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletalsystem and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Doctors of Chiropractic are fully licensed physicians and practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend rehabilitative exercises, as well as nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counseling. Patients may be assessed through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic modalities to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not an appropriate referral will be made.
Therapeutic massage is an important supplement to Chiropractic care and is recognized as one of the oldest methods of healing with references in medical texts nearly 4,000 years old. Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues and consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body. Generally, massage affects the circulation of blood and lymph, reduces muscular tension, affects the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and promotes tissue healing.

Acupuncture is a characteristic component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), a form of alternative medicine, and one of the oldest healing practices in the world. According to traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating specific acupuncture points corrects imbalances in the flow of "qi" through channels known as meridians; disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease.

CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOICS
If your feet don't get proper support from your footwear, simple movements such as walking, running, and jumping can eventually pull your body out of alignment, causing stress and fatigue to your lower body. Arch supports are highly recommended as they are designed to reinforce your feet, saving you from the pain and discomfort of a misaligned body.
Without proper support, your feet will be overwhelmed by the constant stress of absorbing the force generated by body weight and gravity combined. This will lead to arch pain or plantar fasciitis–a very common condition affecting the plantar fascia that can be difficult to treat if not looked after properly. Other conditions you may develop from unsupported arches include: low back pain, neck pain, hip pain, and ankle pain.
Most arch support insoles, especially over-the-counter arch support for flat feet, are designed to only assist a single arch on each foot. Such generic products often over-correct one arch, causing more harm than good as discomfort will only shift from one area of the body to another. Furthermore, over-the-counter products may not be very durable, and may result in more costs due to frequent replacement.
There are three arches that form the plantar vault, and that all three need orthotic reinforcement to properly support the rest of your body. This is why we offer custom arch supports that are individually designed based on digital images or impressions of your feet. This ensures that our products are tailored to your specific stabilizing needs for longer-term symptom relief.
Ensure better posture and enhance chiropractic adjustments by getting arch supports especially made for you. With our stabilizing orthotics, pain relief and better overall health are guaranteed or you get your money back.
