Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjusting image

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

Chiropractic is the natural method to get your body to fully heal and express its potential. Stress, wear and tear, fatigue and mental anxiety can all take a toll on our health. Chiropractic helps you rebound in ways you may not have considered before.

Your Nerves Control Your Entire Body

Your nervous system controls everything in the body—all organs, cells and tissues. When restrictions are present, you can’t work at 100%. Though you may associate your nerves with pain, they do far more than tell you when something hurts. Chiropractic is a noninvasive, natural, drug-free approach to greater health.

The many conditions that benefit from what we do include

  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle tension/tightness
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Tailoring Our Techniques to You

Dr. Sims is a full spine practitioner. The techniques he uses include Sacro Occipital Technique®, Thompson Drop and Activator®. The Activator instrument is effective for people with severe pain, reduced range of motion, severe spinal stenosis or serious arthritic conditions. Thompson Drop allows you to have a lower-force adjustment, which our patients appreciate.

Our Additional Therapies

You may have a therapy as a part of your care plan when appropriate. There are several modalities offered at our practice.

Electric muscle stimulation. Manage your pain, reduce muscle spasms and reeducate weakened muscles. Each session takes 10-15 minutes.

Ultrasound. Cut down on pain and inflammation with therapeutic ultrasound. This form of heat is applied via a handheld device for 8-15 minutes.

Cold laser therapy. Increase your range of motion, muscle strength and coordination with our cold laser. It’s also effective for pain and headache conditions.

Spinal decompression. Disc herniation, disc bulge and degeneration with compressed nerves all respond well to decompression. You’ll lie on a comfortable table and let it do the work for you, taking about 25 minutes in total.

Our Rehabilitation Room

We have an on-site rehabilitation suite. There, you can incorporate functional exercise to your care, enhancing your flexibility, strength and motor coordination. A wobble board helps those with lumbar spine or extremity-related conditions. There are pulleys for resistance that strengthen your shoulders, hips and knees.

A bicycle isn’t just an aerobic workout; it’ll loosen up hips, knees and backs. You’ll receive one-on-one direction with a member of our staff when you begin your rehabilitation program.
