This is a difficult question to answer since every patient presents with a unique situation. The main factors determining how much care you need are individual recovery ability, treatment goals, age, severity of the condition, length of the condition, occupation, activities of daily living, and adherence to treatment and rehabilitation protocols. Treatment typically ranges

Additional information about your first visit is located under the new patients page.

The body is a dynamic, interrelated system which must function properly for athletic performance and normal activities of daily living. Injuries typically have components of soft tissue dysfunction, joint dysfunction, and movement pattern dysfunctions. All components of the injury are equally important and must be assessed and addressed to fully resolve the condition.Soft-Tissue Dysfunction -
Overuse injuries can result from repetitive athletic movements (running, swimming, weightlifting, golfing), repetitive occupational demands, poor posture, or unresolved past injuries. Chronic soft-tissue stress (micro-trauma) can cause your body to produce tough, dense, scar tissue that alters normal movement patterns and joint function. Injuries can manifest as a loss of strength, pain, and decreased range
Properly prescribed rehabilitative exercise will compliment your treatment and reduce the likelihood of the condition returning by optimizing strength and stability, flexibility of the soft-tissue structures, and mobility of the joints.
An adjustment or manipulation is the act of placing a gentle force through a restricted joint to restore normal motion and function to that joint.

ART® is a soft-tissue technique that focuses on restoring the integrity of individual muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.
