Our treatment philosophy is an all-encompassing holistic approach to health and wellness without the use of drugs or surgery.  We view the body as a whole functional unit and seek to discover the cause of dysfunction through assessment modalities, to facilitate the body to heal itself and restore optimal function using specific therapeutic techniques.

Body Smart Health provides a full body assessment for all new patients and existing patients that have not visited the clinic in the last 3-6 months.  This full body assessment contains a battery set of passive and active tests to determine the scope of muscle dysfunction, mobility limitation or the root cause of the pain.  Based on your body’s ability to heal, adjust, and recover from an injury, accident, or mobility issue – the type of Corrective Manual Therapy applied may change progressively over the course of the Treatment Plan.
