Active Release Technique

 The goal of Active Release Technique is to break up the adhesions or scar tissue commonly found in acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.  Soft tissue most commonly refers to muscle, tendon, ligament and nerve.  This scar tissue forms as a result of acute injury or repetitive overuse conditions.  ART® works to eliminate the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions. It accomplishes this by manually treating the affected tissue with precisely directed tension, while combining specific patient movements.   Dr. Doug Nagel is a certified Master of ART.

In addition to traditional chiropractic methods and techniques, such as spinal and extremity adjustments,

we offer a wide variety of highly specialized treatments that are not easily found elsewhere.

Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is an exciting new way of treating nerve and muscle pain and many other conditions.  This new system of treatment uses microamperage current and the resonance effects of frequencies on tissues and conditions to create beneficial changes in symptoms and health.    This new refinement of microcurrent technology – tiny “doses” of electrical energy – uses very specific frequencies of energy applied to the body in sequence. Correct frequencies are determined by direct observation of how the body responds to them.  Most of the time FSM produces immediate and dramatic changes in tissue that makes it an indispensable tool in treating pain and many other health concerns.

To learn more about this highly specialized cutting edge treatment that is changing lives - and to read patient testimonials and case study reports please click below:​  DUE TO RECENT STORM DAMAGE AND ON-GOING RENOVATIONS TO OUR FACILITY, THE INTRODUCTION OF FSM TREATMENT IS DELAYED.   WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED ON THE PROGRESS AND DATE WE PLAN TO BEGIN OFFERING THIS LIFE CHANGING TREATMENT.


Far Infrared Mineral Therapy

It has been called "The Miracle Lamp" and is very deserving of this nickname.  The TDP Mineral Lamp is a relatively new therapeutic device that treats ailments by emitting far infrared light. Created a scarce 16 years ago, this method is being increasingly used by physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and other healthcare professionals to help their patients with chronic illnesses. 

The TDP Lamp is safe to use, non-invasive and easy to use and works to treat diseases by replacing the lost mineral content in the body. ​ Click below to learn more about the TDP lamp and its benefits:



Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy involves the use of cups applied to an area of the patients’ body in a series of positions in order to produce suction.  The vacuum effect targets areas of skin and deep tissue, which is beneficial for dulling pain, breaking up deep scar tissue, and relaxing tender muscles or connective tissue.  In this way, cupping is almost like the opposite of getting a massage.  Instead of applying pressure to swollen areas, it draws pressure out.  For this reason, cupping is often done in patients who experience chronic back pain, muscle knots, tightness, tenderness, swelling or stiffness.
