Chiropractic Manipulation
Manipulation (also known as "the adjustment") is the technique used by our doctors meant to re-establish the normal movement of the joints in your body. The majority of our manipulations involve your neck, mid-back and lower back. But, we also manipulate other joints in the body including shoulders, elbows, hands/wrists, hips, knees and the ankle/foot. Chiropractors are the only health care professionals who have extensive training in many joint manipulation techniques. Thus, chiropractic manipulation is different from what other health professionals use. Our doctors are hands-on chiropractors using gentle and effective manipulation techniques. We also utilize physical therapy rehabilitation, electrical stimulation, ultrasound and roller tables in the treatment of our patients.  (The image to the right was a gift from a chiropractic friend from Israel. The patient and chiropractor are made from railroad spikes.)
Computerized Spinal Decompression
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a revolutionary new technology used primarily to treat disc injuries in the neck and in the low back. It can also be effective for conditions caused by significant arthritic and degenerative disease of the spine, like spinal stenosis. This treatment option is very safe and utilizes FDA cleared equipment to apply distraction forces to spinal structures in a precise and graduated manner.
For the low back, the patient lies  comfortably on his/her back on the decompression table, with a set of nicely padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower chest. The picture to the right shows a patient undergoing decompression for the lower back.

For the neck, the unit relieves pressure by gently applying traction to the cervical region. Many patients enjoy the treatment, as it is usually quite comfortable and well tolerated.
When you suffer from disc degenerative disease (i.e.: herniated or bulging disc), the vertebra move closer to each other and compress. Spinal decompression therapy gently separates the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting. This “vacuum effect” creates a negative pressure which may cause the herniated or bulging disc to move off the nerve root. The results can be quite dramatic.
If you suffer from disc pain or chronic arthritic pain to the neck or lower back, call the clinic to set up an appointment to see if spinal decompression may be right for you.
Functional Medicine Nutritional Counseling
Functional Medicine is an approach to health care that strives to find the true cause of dysfunction in your body. In most cases, the traditional medicine approach is focused on relieving symptoms, not on finding the cause of your symptoms. For example, if you have heartburn you will be prescribed a medicine to get rid of the symptoms but little will be done to figure out WHY you have heartburn. The functional medicine approach focuses on how proper function has been disrupted and works to normalize the systems of the body.
If you suffer from any digestive issues (heartburn, GERD, SIBO, IBS, Crohn's, U.C., constipation, etc.), Diabetes, Fatigue, Foggy Thinking, Mood problems, Anxiety, Fibromyalgia, Pain syndromes, or any type of Autoimmune disease you should consider making a Functional Medicine nutritional counseling appointment.
Both, Dr. Edward Zimmer and Dr. Samantha Miller have their Master's Degree in Functional Medicine and have extensive experience in working with many disease states. Visit our nutrition website for more detailed information.
Therapeutic Massage
Therapeutic massage is the manipulation of soft tissue with the goal of relieving muscle tension in order to restore balance and function to the body. Massage can help alleviate many chronic conditions, but is also beneficial in reducing physical stress and fatigue, promoting faster healing of acute injuries, and helping to maintain proper joint mechanics following a chiropractic adjustment. It also aids in improving circulation and lymphatic drainage which nourishes the joints, decreases inflammation, and increases flexibility. 
Our certified massage therapists have more than 15 years experience. Your massage experience at our medical facility will be not only relaxing but therapeutic. Our therapists possess a firm knowledge of how the muscles, fascia, and joints function together as a whole.  Some of the different techniques our therapists employ include: Deep tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Cupping, Myofascial Release, and Hot Stone Therapy.
Therapeutic Cupping
Cupping is a therapeutic technique in which our doctor applies suction to the surface of the skin using glass or plastic cups. This suction draws fluid into the treated area and expands tiny blood vessels under your skin called capillaries. Your body replenishes the cupped area with fresh, healthy blood flow, which stimulates healing at a cellular level. The vacuum force also physically breaks up adhesions in the fascia, allowing the relaxation of tender muscle knots.
This therapy is great for pain relief and musculoskeletal issues, such as sprains, strains, muscle spasms, as well as inflammation, arthritic pain, and headaches.  It is a very safe treatment with few side effects. Overall, you will find this therapy to be gentle and relaxing.  
Dr. Samantha Miller and Dr. Reid Milligan offer cupping as a part of their comprehensive approach to holistic care. Our experienced practitioners are trained in the art of cupping and will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and concerns. Whether you are seeking relief from chronic pain or looking to improve your overall well-being, cupping therapy can be a beneficial addition to your wellness routine.
