For those ready to improve their health circumstances, there are always steps we can take to move you towards greater health & well-being. Let us partner with you to see what's possible.

I started in chiropractic, but my toolbox has grown over the years to include a range of modalities. Each patient that directly works with me receives their own unique combination of therapies to address their specific needs.

I’m an avid learner, and I continue to expand my repertoire and understanding of the human body. Classes that I’ve taken beyond my original chiropractic training include nutrition, functional medicine, rehabilitation/therapeutic exercise, restorative/corrective, bodywork, soil agronomics, urine/saliva/blood analysis, and beyond. Got something new that I haven’t heard of?  Let me know about it, and I’ll check it out!

I visited today for the first time to get relief from frozen shoulder, I'm a few hours post treatment and have noticed a difference already. Going to look forward to my next visits to continue this great feeling!!

My left knee was experiencing a lot of pain. Plus my sciatica nerve was inflamed on my right leg. This has been occurring for months. Using SoftWave, both my leg knee and sciatica nerve are much better!

SoftWave FAQs

  • What results should I expect from SoftWave Therapy?

    If you are a candidate for treatment, SoftWave therapy can provide both immediate and long-lasting results. After one SoftWave session, patients typically experience a 20-50% reduction in pain and improvement in mobility, lasting from a few hours to several days. Some patients require multiple sessions before experiencing improvement.

    To determine if SoftWave is a suitable treatment for you, schedule a $69 New Patient Appointment, where you will receive one SoftWave treatment session, and the provider will assess whether further treatment is appropriate.

    Unlike pain medications and injections, SoftWave treatment seeks to activate the body’s natural healing process at the cellular level to deliver genuine and long-lasting results.

  • What is the SoftWave treatment process like?

    SoftWave is a fast and convenient non-invasive procedure that usually lasts 10-15 minutes, with no downtime required for recovery. First, ultrasound gel is applied, then the SoftWave device is gently placed to deliver shock waves to the injured area. Most patients feel a gentle tapping or pulsing sensation, while some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort. The use of anesthesia or numbing agents is not necessary. Effective communication with the provider during treatment can help identify treatment hotspots and track progress.

    Is SoftWave therapy safe with prescription medication?

    SoftWave therapy can be safely combined with prescription medication in most cases.

    Is SoftWave therapy safe after surgery?

    SoftWave therapy is generally safe after surgery, depending on the type of surgery performed. In fact, it is commonly used to accelerate healing and post-surgical rehabilitation. Some doctors even use SoftWave in the operating room immediately after surgery, to activate the body’s healing process.

    Is SoftWave safe with metal in your body?

    SoftWave therapy is safe for patients with metal in their body, such as pins, plates, or joint replacements.

    Is SoftWave safe with a blood pressure condition?

    Yes, Softwave is generally safe for patients with blood pressure conditions, like high or low blood pressure.

    Who is NOT a candidate for SoftWave therapy?

    SoftWave therapy is not suitable for individuals who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or have cancer. At your first appointment, the provider can further discuss any conditions that would impact your ability to receive therapy.

  • Does SoftWave therapy have side effects?

    Side effects from SoftWave therapy are minimal and non-restrictive. SoftWave does not cause bruising or swelling, although some patients may experience slight redness and soreness that typically subsides within one to two days. While recovery downtime is not usually needed, we recommend avoiding high-impact movements or exercise for the first 24-48 hours.

    SoftWave therapy treats an array of conditions, injuries and symptoms, including:

    • Joint and muscle pain like knee, shoulder, and lower back pain
