We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Dr Pape is certified in the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Jason Pape has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Manual Therapy & Soft Tissue Work
We offer the Graston Technique. Graston Technique is an advanced form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization which enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. GT is performed with patented stainless steel instruments designed to effectively detect and treat areas exhibiting soft-tissue fibrosis.
FAKTR (pronounced FACTOR) stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab. This concept includes function and treatment of the kinetic chain while utilizing various forms of rehabilitation at the same time. It also incorporates treatment in the position of provocation (pain, loss of range of motion, feeling of tightness within the fascia/soft tissues) and during motion. FAKTR incorporates all of the above variations to evaluate and treat soft tissue/fascial conditions. These concepts are quick to apply and produce rapid results.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for youDr. Jason Pape can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
