Dr. Steven Ray recommends chiropractic care as an alternative to invasive approaches, such as drugs or surgery. Many physical conditions respond well to chiropractic treatment, including the every day aches of pains of life.
The human body is designed to maintain health. The nervous system controls and coordinates all of the body's functions. Interference to the nervous system causes a malfunction in the other body systems which leads to pain and illness. Chiropractors focus on removing the cause of the problem, the interference to the nervous system, which then allows the body to heal itself.
Chiropractic is beneficial for musculoskeletal conditions, including: headaches, neck and back pain, muscle and joint pain, scoliosis, sciatica, and pinched nerves. Chiropractic care has also been shown to aid many other health problems, such as: arthritis, fibromyalgia, shingles, sinus problems, dizziness, allergies, and asthma.
Whatever your situation is and wherever your pain is, Dr. Ray will create a treatment plan to have you feeling better soon. Chiropractic services include hands-on physical manipulation, stretching and flexibility, muscle testing, massage and body re-education. Xrays may be taken to provide a more thorough understanding of your unique situation.

Our bodies heal themselves at a cellular level. Medicine has long tried to speed up this process with medication, therapies and treatments. Laser Therapy is one highly effective form of treatment that encourages our cells to heal and shortens the time needed to do so. This painless laser beam excites the cell for healing to begin and progress rapidly. Another positive benefit of laser therapy is that pain is immediately lessened when the laser is applied and each successive treatment heals the troubled area until pain is completely gone.
Whether you are treating a sprain or a broken bone, a headache or shingles, Laser Therapy can help with pain and recovery. Speed your time to recovery and lessen your pain. Try it for just a few minutes to see that Laser Therapy is amazing.
