The Experience You Need

In addition to chiropractic, he may recommend electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound and therapeutic exercises, which serve as a complement to your care. What we do will be geared specifically toward the injury that you present with.

Try Chiropractic Before Surgery

We encourage you to try chiropractic before you resort to scheduling a surgery for your injury. Chiropractic doesn’t require making changes to the structure of your body. It’s noninvasive and conservative. If we don’t believe we can help you, we’ll gladly refer you to the appropriate practitioner.

The Power of Prevention

It’s not necessary to wait until you have an issue to see Dr. Ben. You can benefit from chiropractic even if you aren’t in pain. Studies show that chiropractic can improve your performance. Under our care, you can have greater flexibility in your muscles, ligaments and tendons. With a higher range of motion, you can perform at your best level yet.

The Sacro Occipital Technique®

Dr. Ben is a practitioner of Sacro Occipital Technique. This system is designed to diagnose imbalances in your muscle and detect spinal misalignments. In addressing these areas, we can improve your overall function. We’ll uncover the cause of your problem. A pain in your shoulder might be caused by a misaligned pelvis. Through our thorough examination, we’ll make sure that we find the root of what is occurring and the best way to correct it.
