Welcome to ACTIVA Chiro Acupuncture

Thank you for visiting Activa Chiropractic.
Chiropractic emphasizes improving your health and help to reduce the risk of pain and illness. Most people believe that they are in normal shape. However, many people are not so close to be healthy from professional view. Many people just become numb to what their body trying to tell. Therefore, imbalanced posture or condition became false “normal” to them. My mission as chiropractor is : to change the normal to real normal which is healthybody and mind.

At Activa Chiropractic you will be a partner in designing a treatment plan specific to you.

Treatment techniques

Chiropractic Adjustment

the spinal adjustment refers to the doctor of chiropractic applies controlled force to one or more “subluxated” vertebrae of the spine. The adjustment is usually delivered using the hands.
Spinal adjustments are applied to certain vertebrae of the spine which are no longer in their proper position. Even people who are not experiencing back or neck discomfort should receive periodic spinal checkups to keep their healthy spine.

ART®(Active release technique®)

ART® is a hands-on therapy that corrects muscular and soft tissue problems caused by the adhesion formations that occur with overuse or cumulative trauma.
Cumulative trauma and overuse of soft tissue causes Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI).  Soft tissue that is forced to perform the same job over and over becomes irritated and then inflamed.  The body responds to that inflammation by laying down scar tissue in an attempt to stabilize the area.  This scar tissue, in turn, causes further inflammation and begins an ongoing cycle that worsens the condition.  The longer this condition persists, the harder it is to break cycle.

ART® is well known treatment in sports. ART® is used in many professional sports such as MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA, MMA and etc.
ART® is proud sponsor of IRONMAN® events.
