Chiropractic Care

We use a number of highly-effective and gentle adjusting approaches to help improve spinal mobility and reduce nerve irritation and muscle tension. We offer low force chiropractic techniques like Activator and COX Flexion Distraction along with various massage/soft tissue and myofascial release techniques. We even offer The Pettibon System of Spine and Posture Rehabilitation which is reportedly the most advanced treatment for more serious spinal rehabilitation.

Our in-office active exercise rehab techniques were developed to facilitate your healing with the goal in mind to promote strengthening, stabilization and re-coordination of soft tissues, so your adjustments hold better and longer and your body has a chance to heal stronger. This helps to produce long term results. read more»

Spinal Decompression

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (see spinal decompression section) has proven to help thousands with herniated and bulging spinal discs, sciatica, numbness and tingling, muscle weakness related to nerve compression, arthritis, chronic back pain and spinal stenosis. Dr. Elliott, a certified spinal decompression practitioner, has even successfully treated a number of patients with failed back surgery, and even patients that have been told they needed surgery but were unwilling. Our 40+ video testimonials speak for themselves.  read more»

Brain Based Therapy

We also offer a chiropractic neurological technique is called Brain Based Therapy (BBT) – a new treatment program based on the work of Dr. Frederic Carrick, who is chiropractic’s only Neurological Fellow. The treatments are all neurologically based and clinically proven to help with chronic neck and back pain, fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, migraines, RSDS, numbness, balance disorders and other neurological conditions.read more»

Some of the 50+ different treatments that are often used in Brain Based Therapy are oxygen therapy, visual therapy, olfactory stimulation, auditory stimulation, spin therapy, eye exercises, heat, mirror imagery, warm calorics and the UBE or Upper Body Ergometer (similar to a bicycle for your arms).

Our patients have seen some life changing results using BBT. Dr. Elliott starts with a basic neurological screening to determine who can be helped by this breakthrough therapy.

Laser Therapy

As a supplement to treatment, we offer the latest advancement in Laser Therapy for pain relief and improved healing using the FDA cleared 25 watt TerraQuant Pro Laser. read more»

What is Laser or Light Therapy?

Low level laser & LED Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. The light may be provided by a low power laser or an LED (light emitting diode). Laser emits energy in a form of photons; these particles of energy are absorbed by the cells and tissue resulting in conversion of light into biochemical energy. This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state.

Research shows that

  • Injuries treated with laser therapy can heal up to 900% faster
  • Laser Therapy has a strengthening effect on tissue repair
  • Laser Therapy improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage
  • It is an effective means of relief for many pain syndromes
  • It can improve immune response

Facts About Laser Therapy

  • Pain Free
  • Non Invasive
  • No Known Side Effects
  • Proven Clinical Results
  • FDA Cleared Treatment
  • Over 3000 Clinical Studies Published Worldwide

The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from infrared laser radiation, called photons, to damaged cells. The consensus of experts is that photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP.

Other Services and Options For Care:

  • We offer complementary consultations where we sit down and listen to your problems and concerns to see if there is any way we can help, even if is just a referral to a doctor or specialty who can.
  • We’ll provide second opinions to see if we are a better fit for your needs than other recommended treatments. Dr. Elliott served as a Independent Disability Evaluator and a Qualified Medical Evaluator for the state of California for 5 years and has experience in evaluating many serious and complex cases.
  • We conduct orthopedic, neurological and ( if needed) X-ray evaluations along with the chiropractic exam to help make sure that nothing is over looked. We find many cases where a serious disc or nerve injury is over looked by a hurried doctor, or where the patient was prescribed drugs or therapy that were ineffective at treating the problem.
  • We offer a choice of a male or female doctor for those who need that special approach.
  • We offer physiotherapy including muscle stimulation, ultrasound, massage and muscle release techniques which are passive therapies that promote the reduction of muscle tension, pain and swelling so you can get a more gentle and thorough adjustment and feel better right away.
