We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
The foods that we eat can have the effect of making joints and body tissues inflamed. Based on your current diet, our doctors may make dietary recommendations to reduce your inflammatory potential. For a more detailed nutritional analysis, Dr. Maximenko can help. She earned her master’s degree in Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.
Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.
The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy known as instrumental assisted soft-tissue treatment. This manual therapy approach involves the use of an instrument with a specialized form of gentle massaging/scraping to the skin. It is used to identify areas of restriction and break up scar tissue which promotes a better healing environment for the injured soft tissue.
Our patients are given special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of the home and can improve the effectiveness of treatment. Often, the muscles of the body can become deconditioned which results in a lack of stability. Specific exercises and stretches can help stabilized injured areas of the body allowing for the restoration of function.

Active Release Technique (ART)
ART entails identifying, isolating, and targeting an affected soft tissue area to break up scar tissue. This promotes blood flow and faster healing of injuries. ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splits, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that only takes a few minutes to stimulate healing. The technique is called “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. During this procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near-infrared light cause a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration. Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the procedure is painless and noninvasive.

Spinal manipulation (adjustment) is a technique where we use our hands to apply a controlled thrust to a joint of your spine. The amount of force can vary, but the thrust moves the joint more than it would on its own. By adjusting the spine, we are aiding in restoring the normal and healthy functioning of the spine. Adjustments can also be performed to the extremity joints such as the hip, ankle, elbow, wrist, shoulder, etc...
Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in the myofascial tissues. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body. Pain usually originates from specific points within your myofascial tissues called “trigger points.” This therapy focuses on reducing pain by easing tension and tightness in the trigger points.
Dry Needling is a treatment technique where thin filiform needles are inserted through the skin into pathological areas of the muscle known as "trigger points" for the purpose of relieving myofascial pain and muscle spasm. These are the same needles used in traditional acupuncture therapy, they are solid rather than hollow, and no medication is injected. The needles will remain in your skin for a short period of time.
While most manual therapies use downward pressure to alleviate muscle adhesions, cupping uses suction to pull tissues up. This technique is used to unwind tension and loosen adhesions in the body. Cups may be held in one place “static”, or slid along the skin like a moving vacuum called “gliding” or “dynamic.” This treatment can be deep and therapeutic or gentle and relaxing depending on your preference and desired result of the treatment.
Provides support to injured areas by microscopically lifting the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, which decompresses the area and promotes blood and lymph flow.
