How We Help:
Low back pain is not always as simple as just a bone being out of place. Most cases have developed over time and require more than just a “quick fix.” Through complete functional movement screens, we can narrow down the exact problem and the exact tissue(s) that need to be fixed. Manual therapy, joint manipulation, therapeutic exercise, or a combination of all three may be needed to fix your problem! Better diagnosis in our office, means better treatment, and lasting results for you!
