The core of what chiropractic is; specific mobilizations of spinal vertebra used to re-distribute motion to the spine by correcting joint dysfunction. When joints are functionally stable and moving in their proper pattern, the body functions better as a whole, gets injured less, and creates a better environment for the body's other systems to function.

Functional Dry Needling
Functional dry needling is the practice of inserting a monofilament needle to invoke a twitch response is a muscle. The muscle twitch has many positive benefits including reduced pain, reduced muscle tension, decreased inflammation, and improved electrical conductivity. This practice is extremely safe and has very few side effects.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into muscle adhesions followed by lengthening the muscle to eliminate the adhesions and restore motion.
Similar to manual myofacial release except using a tool instead of a finger to apply the pressure. The most well-known example of this is Graston Technique®. Graston Technique® is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break up adhesions in an area to promote healing.
Dynamic cupping is a new twist on traditional cupping. It involves having 1-2 cups on a tight area of the body and taking that area of the body through normal range of motion. It has a similar positive benefit that traditional cupping has without the dark circle bruises.
Rocktape is just a brand name for Kinesiology tape. Kinesiology tape goes on skin and acts as a reminder to sit with good posture or walk correctly or to adjust form on a lift. By acting as a reminder to maintain good form, a person reduces the incoming stress to the body, allowing it to heal. It can also be used to treat acute injury sprains via edema taping. Edema taping creates pressure differentials under the skin which increases drainage to help reduce swelling and inflammation. It can drastically decrease the time it takes for bruises to go away. It can also be used around joints to give a sense of stability which can aid in the retraining of muscles.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, or “DNS” as it is commonly referred to, is a manual and rehabilitative approach to optimize the movement based upon the scientific principles of developmental kinesiology (DK). Basically re-training muscles into the correct functional patterns to make everyday functions smoother and less painful.
