Manual Therapy is a comprehensive therapy that aims to restore health and function to the body as a whole. Many systems in the body as possible are assessed to find what is behind the problem or areas of concern; some Osteopathy techniques are then used to restore health and function to that system. Some of the systems addressed include the musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system, Nervous system, and the Viscera. Manual Therapy has methods and techniques for addressing fluids, organs, muscles/ and skeleton, and the cranium/ brain to restore function and improve health and vitality throughout the whole body.
The manual therapy assessment is system thorough, checking the spine and structure for abnormalities, checking the organs for dysfunction, checking fluid flow and circulation, and assessing the overall physical condition. Although most assessment is “medical standard”; the manual therapy understanding of the body is quite different. We are not interested in treating the problem as much as we are in finding and dealing with what caused it, which is where healing begins. Manual Osteopathic Practitioners are trained to communicate with the body to then treat the systems using the most appropriate and effective method the condition requires; which could be a joint adjustment, nerve stimulation, muscle release, organ manipulation, etc.
Some common problems treated include: Sciatica, Arthritis, Nerve pain, Back/Neck pain and stiffness, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Tendonitis Osteoporosis, Edema, circulatory problems, whiplash headaches, anxiety, fatigue, digestion issues, IBS, menstrual pain, cramping.

Shockwave works to harness your own body’s innate ability to heal itself. The “shock” in Shockwave Therapy does not refer to an electrical current, rather it refers to an impact wave that travels extremely quickly through your tissues. The shockwave causes cavitation (creation and popping of microscopic gas bubbles) in the tissue, imparts a deep vibration, increases circulation, physically breaks down adhesions and scar tissue, and evokes a complicated series of biochemical reactions all to wake up your body’s own healing mechanisms.
Our orthotics are produced using a gait scan, a computerized step analysis that generates hard data to which not only pressure points are important, but more so the timing and order of how your foot contacts throughout your step. This is a very effective tool that reduces the reliance on error prone impression techniques or distracting video analysis. Timing and order of your step cannot be observed by video analysis. The orthotic that is built is fully customized and customizable. That means that not only is the basic contour specific to your specific requirements but that any necessary postings, cushioning, and unique topcovers can be added.
