HOW WE CAN HELP
Your health and wellness are our number one priority. Whether you are looking to resolve pain and discomfort, or you are simply seeking to improve your physical performance, our personal approach allows us to curate our treatments toward your specific needs.
HANDS ON APPROACH
During every chiropractic treatment, you will experience one-on-one care with the chiropractor for your entire appointment. Our specialized hands-on approach helps to restore your body, resolving pain and discomfort and improving your physical performance.
During a chiropractic treatment, Dr. Hockstra uses his hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. These treatment protocols (over 500 specific moves) are unique to Active Release Technique. They allow Dr. Hockstra to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.
ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
A.R.T. is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with A.R.T.
Normatec utilizes a patented technology that massages the legs and hips with pneumatic compression to increase circulation and rejuvenate your muscles. Treatments cost $25 for 30 minutes.
Normatec is at the forefront of the recovery movement and works with athletes and teams across Olympic, collegiate, and pro sports to improve recovery and performance. Studies show Normatec's massage results in reduced muscle soreness, enhanced blood flow to the treated areas, decreased inflammation, and increased range of motion.
