Pregnancy is a magical time in a woman’s life, and we consider it an honor to work with our expecting patients. Dr. Berry is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is certified in the Webster’s Technique. This technique aids in proper alignment of the pelvis, relieving pressure off of ligaments, and, in many cases, helps the body be able to help the baby move into a vertex position if breech.Learn more about our Prenatal Wellness

Low Force Chiropractic
Utilizing state-of-the-art, non-force chiropractic techniques, we provide advanced spinal correction and maintenance for all ages. Our techniques are safe, more comfortable, and effective. Primarily using a tool called the Impulse Adjusting Instrument®, the waveform is tuned to the natural frequency of your body, and stimulates the nerve receptors by creating more bone movement with less force than traditional chiropractic methods.
VibraCussor® percussive therapy is an exciting new treatment approach for both muscle and ligament problems and related myofascial conditions. The instrument delivers waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues of the body, which loosens up areas without heavy thrusting force. It can help in a variety of ways: warming up the muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic flow, and decreasing muscle spasms, to name a few.
We believe in a thorough examination to determine what action should be taken for your health care. Part of our examination may be to take films of your spine to properly diagnose what is ailing you. Digital x-ray allows us to capture films without chemical processing. Our state-of-the-art processing uses less radiation than conventional radiography, and allows us to enhance the overall display of the image which, in turn, gives us the best possible views of your spine.

Housed within the mitochondria, the cell energy manufacturer, are receptors capable of absorbing distinct parameters of light. Think of these receptors like any drug receptors. When we consume a prescription medication, the compound is absorbed by the body and it locates a particular receptor; based upon its molecular design, will bind to that receptor. Once the drug binds, a secondary reaction inside the cell takes place. A similar mechanism is observed when exposing the body to a particular color of light. During a laser treatment, the light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by this receptor within the mitochohndria. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation and enhanced blood and oxygen flow.
