The Chiropractic Adjustment
The chiropractic adjustment restores proper joint motion, alignment and function to your spine and extremities. This stimulates your nervous system to eliminate nerve dysfunction. If you are having pain, numbness, tingling, headaches, muscle tightness, fatigue, or internal system problems, adjusting the spine powerfully eliminates the interference. Our doctors will work to identify the physical, emotional, and chemical stressors of life that are leading to an unhealthily spine and body.
What is Graston Technique?
The Graston Technique utilizes a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function.
Graston works great on both the spine and extremities.
Whether the area is an old or new injury site, Graston can help to quickly eliminate knots/ scar tissue regions in the muscles. If you have that adjustment that “just won’t hold,” chronic knots in your back, or injury to a wrist, shoulder, knee, ankle, etc. consider this technique as a very effective tool to return it to proper function.
What does Graston help treat?
- chronic back and neck pain
- carpal tunnel
- tennis elbow
- strained muscles
- knee pain
- sprained ankles
- plantar fascitis
Myofascial trigger points and tender points in soft tissue can often cause pain, reduced range of motion and decreased function. Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a sterile, very thin filament needle inserted into the tissue to stimulate healing that may be associated with one or several of your complaints. Where the Graston technique and therapeutic massage “break up” the adhesions and scar tissue in muscles, dry needling has more of a neurological effect on the muscles. Our doctors often explain it this way: “The thin needle goes into the muscle, activating nerve receptors, causing the brain to tell the related tissue to unwind and relax. The unhealthy muscles and fascia then stop pulling on the bones and joints, helping to stop the muscle memory that often causes chronic pain and dysfunction.”
What does Dry Needling help treat?
- Neck and back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Shoulder, hip and knee pain
- Muscular strains and ligament sprains
- Plantar fasciitis
- Chronic muscle imbalances
- Chronic pain
Advanced Digital X-ray

Strength comes through proper movement. A chiropractic adjustment starts the process of correcting improper movement. However, often times, specific rehabilitate exercise is needed to create a longer-lasting change. For some, this involves the lengthening/stretching of tight and weak muscles; for others, core strength and balance. In every case, addressing joints or muscles that may be causing compensation is imperative in treating the actual source of pain.
Dr. Flohr has found kinesiotape to be a great adjunct to treating sports, auto, work comp and overuse injuries. The taping technique, when applied appropriately, assists in muscle support, swelling reduction, proprioceptive feedback and improved circulation.
We believe that our body’s fuel is imperative in the healing process. Our clinic offers pharmaceutical grade products for bone, joint, muscle, nervous system and immune function. We have specialized products for adults and children.
