Chiropractic Services

A more personalized & comprehensive approach

By offering in-home services, we are able to spend the time needed to discuss, understand and treat your health issues, rather than rushing you through appointments. This “no rush” philosophy allows us to take a more personalized and comprehensive approach, in which we work together as a team to address both your short-term and long-term health goals. Treatments are custom designed for you, utilizing “tools” from our “therapeutic toolbox” (see services below), to get your body functioning better and with less pain. Sessions are fun and you are welcome (and encouraged) to ask questions and give feedback.

Chiropractic Pain & Wellness Care

Chiropractic has a unique place in health care as we are able to utilize a variety of natural health services for our patients rather than limiting ourselves to a specific treatment protocol. One of the services we offer is spinal manipulative therapy, which is what people commonly refer to as chiropractic “adjustments”.  An “adjustment” is a fast, yet gentle, thrusting movement performed to areas of the spine that are fixated, painful, in spasm or just not moving properly.  By restoring proper motion, the joints can move freely through their full, natural range thus relieving unwanted stress on the surrounding soft tissue and bony structures. This is a very effective method for reducing pain and stiffness, improving overall function and athletic abilities, as well as to help prevent future problems during the aging process. Results are best when paired with our intensive spine strengthening protocols.

Myofascial Therapy

The soft tissue of your body (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) often becomes tight and restrictive from injury, postural issues and daily wear and tear.  This can lead to stiffness, dysfunction and pain. Dr. Bruno utilizes several different techniques for treating the soft tissue of the body including Active Release Technique (ART), Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Joint Mobilization, Dynamic Stretching and other therapies to correct these issues.

Postural Assessment & Restoration

In the age of computers, texting and excessive sitting, postural problems have become commonplace. Poor posture not only puts a lot of stress on your spine and musculoskeletal system, but also on your lungs and cardiovascular system. Dr. Bruno performs postural assessments on every patient and recommends rehabilitative exercises to correct these issues.

The Spine Strong Rehabilitation Program For Chronic Lower Back Pain

The Spine Strong Program is a corrective rehabilitation program for those experiencing chronic recurring lower back pain and postural instabilities. It is based on scientifically developed intensive spine strengthening techniques that are clinically-proven to:  1) Provide lasting relief from lower back pain  2) Decrease the frequency and duration of painful flare-ups  3) Improve strength, flexibility, endurance and stability of the lower back  4) Help prevent the need for back surgery.  The program consists of 20 corrective exercise sessions over the course of 10 weeks. These sessions can be combined with any of Dr. Bruno’s other services.

Functional Movement Therapy

Our specialized rehabilitative training sessions focus on developing proper movement patterns of your spine and joints, restoring postural integrity and promoting gains in strength, flexibility, endurance and coordination of your entire body. Workouts are fun, challenging and rewarding. Sessions can be independent of, or combined with chiropractic and myofascial therapies.

Dynamic Therapeutic Stretching

Along with soft tissue therapies and rehabilitative exercises, Dr. Bruno often performs dynamic therapeutic stretching with patients to mobilize the spine and extremities and help increase range of motion. Dynamic stretching is stretching performed with movement and is healthier, safer and more effective than static stretching.
