Enduring relief of Chronic pain

without medications, injections, surgery or maintence care.

This procedure or treatment technique provides relief is through regular and continuous minimization of the routine stress on joints and muscles caused by incorrect posture. The treatment involves the use of foot orthotics to optimize the shape and alignment of the feet and ankles; heel lift to level the pelvis (sacral base); and osteopathic manual manipulative treatment to gently reduce tightness and tenderness of tissue (caused due to prior posture and / or trauma).
