Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic treatment is effective for muscle spasms of the back and neck, many different types of headaches, and issues involving the joints and tissues of the upper and lower extremities.

Chiropractic treatment includes manipulation and adjustment of body structures, such as the spinal column, so that correct movement can be restored. The doctor will usually make use of other modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, moist heat or ice packs to aid in the manipulation. Finally, a program of therapeutic exercise will be prescribed to maintain optimal performance.

Massage Therapy

Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress; and, to promote health and wellness.

In massage therapy, the practitioner applies manual techniques, and may apply adjunctive therapies.

Massage therapy improves function of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems and helps improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness.

Massage is offered in 30 minute and 60 minute sessions. Packaging is available for multiple sessions.

KinesioTape compression recovery

Kinesiology Taping

"Made for competition, ROCKTAPE is the only tape engineered to meet the demands of endurance athletes like runners, swimmer and cyclists. Unlike other products, ROCKTAPE can be used both to apply compression to promote recovery, or decompression to relieve pain and swelling. When applied over a stretched muscle, ROCKTAPE lifts the skin which accelerates blood flow. This acceleration increases the amount of oxygen available to the muscles.

Additionally, this increase in circulation promotes lymph drainage and the removal of lactic acid which helps endurance athletes manage fatigue. These combined effects are powerful; as they allow the athlete to go harder for longer periods. And unlike compression garments, ROCKTAPE can be applied to very specific areas of the body, areas that are sometimes hard to reach such as shoulders, knees and joints."

Orthotics by Foot Levelers

Orthotics by Foot Levelers

Most orthotic companies only support one arch. When only one arch is being supported the problem shifts to another part of your body. Stabilizing Orthotics support the three interconnected arches of your foot. Unlike generic, over-the-counter orthotics, our Stabilizing Orthotics are individually designed for your unique postural problems — not just problems with your feet. We believe that correcting imbalances in your feet can properly align your spine and pelvis. Check out what Foot Levelers can do for you at PLC.
