SPECIALIZED MYOFASCIAL TECHNIQUES to address tension and restriction in the muscles of the extremity.

NUTRITION recommendations based on your specific needs to strengthen and support your body’s ability to heal itself.

STRENGTH & FLEXIBILITY RESTORATION to improve the mobility and stability of the injured or degenerative joint. This serves to prevent re-injury and or slow the degenerative process. Strong flexible joints are more resistant to injury.

The Importance of Chiropractic Care and Stretching

The goal of chiropractic adjustments is to get the spine into alignment, making it easier for the body to function. When the spine is aligned, the muscles, ligaments and tendons supporting the spine are less strained allowing your body to maintain the alignment for longer periods of time. By maintaining the alignment of your spine, the risk of pain and injury are significantly reduced.
Chiropractic care is more than just spinal adjustments. Flexibility also plays an important role in the alignment of your body and its ability to maintain proper posture and function. Our doctors will provide you with a specialized stretching and strengthening routine to help improve flexibility and reduce pain.

Whether your pain has just begun or you have been suffering for a while, your symptoms can be a source of great frustration. Our Team at Horn Family Chiropractic has been successfully treating mid back and rib pain for over 32 years.
