Every Patient has Personalized Care to Reduce Their Pain
Our personalized treatment methods ensure that we will able to find and eliminate any interference to your nervous system and, in time, realign your spine. This realignment will help to reinvigorate your body and help you achieve optimal health.
The reason individuals choose chiropractic care for auto accident injuries is simple – chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially of the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with MVA’s are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, chiropractic is the proven treatment of choice.

Live and Work Without Headaches, Low Back and Neck Pain
Lower Back Pain
Chiropractic care and therapeutic exercise is an effective treatment for low back pain. While you concentrate on your recovery, regular adjustments can alleviate pain and ensure that everything heals correctly. Specific spinal care can restore comfort, movement, balance to the nervous system and provide pain relief to function toward healing.
After neck pain, headaches are the second most common complaint from those suffering from whiplash injury. While some headaches are actually the result of direct brain injury, most are related to injury of the muscles, ligaments and facet joints of the cervical spine, which refer pain to the head.
Shoulder and Neck Pain
This complex center of nerves fees every part of your arms from the shoulder through your fingertips. If it becomes injured, pinching pain, numbness, weakness and other sensations may clue you into the fact that misalignment has taken place. Chiropractic care, along with massage, myofascial therapy and other forms of therapy can relieve the nerves of their stress.
Has Your Child Been Diagnosed with Scoliosis?
Dr. Tim Ciolkosz was trained to understand every aspect of how scoliosis affects the body. While scoliosis is a disease of the spine, it can also affect the heart, lungs, posture, physical functioning, and balance. Scoliosis is not caused by muscle tension. Studies have found that tension in the muscles arises as a consequence of scoliosis, after it has progressed to a certain point. Scoliosis is a complex three dimensional condition that causes twisting of the rib cage as well as flattening of normal curves. You can expect to be treated as a whole person – not a condition.

Student Athletes Succeed with our Chiro-Rehab Treatment
Fewer Field Injuries
One of the biggest causes of injuries in athletes is asymmetry throughout the body, meaning one side of the body is different from the other. Most commonly we deal with mobility and flexibility issues.
Reduced Repetitive Impacts
We use chiropractic adjustments to get the body properly aligned and perform soft tissue work such as massage to reduce tension that could be keeping the body out of alignment.
Improved Overuse Syndrome
Reduce the risk of injury from overworking one area of the body by picking up the slack from a deficient area through chiropractic adjustments.

Vicki Howard has more than 20 years of muscle therapy experience. She has advanced specialties in Trigger Point Therapy and Pfremmer Technique (Deep Tissue Technique). A light to medium massage, utilizing long soothing strokes, designed to slow down and reduce stress, while improving circulation, range of motion, and tension.
Through applied knowledge of trigger points, myofascial release addresses postural distortion, restricted by body movement, and compressed nerves. This technique helps to balance the central nervous system and is great for chronic problems such as neck pain, back pain, headaches, accident victims and athletic injuries.
