  • Spinal Manipulation: With this treatment, we can realign the spine and take pressure off of the soft tissue, muscles, and ligaments. 
  • Massage Therapy: Massage therapy alleviates tense muscles and helps the body relax. Not only that, but it also releases endorphins and helps you to heal faster.
  • Spinal Decompression: This method gently stretches your spine, which eliminates back pain and hip pain due to scoliosis.
