  • Cortisone Injection

    Cortisone injection is a treatment used to provide pain relief for a variety of conditions such as arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis. Cortisone injections minimize inflammation, which decreases the body’s pain response. Cortisone injections use a synthetic (man-made) form of cortisone, a substance naturally produced by the body.
  • Craniosacral Therapy

    Craniosacral therapy is an alternative therapy involving the gentle massage of bones in the skull, spine and pelvis. This therapy is used to ease tension and stress in the body.
  • A nerve conduction study and electromyography (EMG) test evaluates the health of your muscles and the nerves that control your muscles. They can help determine whether symptoms, such as tingling or muscle weakness, are due to a nerve injury or a neuromuscular disorder.
  • Physical Therapy

    Physical therapy can help people regain function, independence and quality of life after a stroke, injury or surgical procedure. It can also help people who are experiencing chronic pain or disability.
  • Trigger point injections are used to relieve painful trigger points, areas of muscle that have become tight and inflamed. Often, a tender knot or tight band can be felt at the spot.
  • Yoga

    Yoga is an ancient mind-body practice that combines physical postures, breathing techniques and meditation or relaxation. Research suggests that in addition to improving physical fitness, strength and flexibility, yoga has many health benefits, including lowering heart rate and blood pressure, relieving anxiety, depression and insomnia, and reducing low back pain.
