At Summit Spine and Wellness, chiropractic care is something we believe is beneficial for everyone, whether you are seeking treatment for pain or want wellness care to keep you healthy and strengthen your immune system. Chiropractic care uses gentle adjustments to remove any subluxations (misalignments) of the spine. These adjustments restore proper nerve flow to your organs and muscles, allowing your body to once again function as it should. This is your body’s innate ability to heal itself. Chiropractic care can help with:
Soft tissue injuries can create scar tissue that restricts movement and causes pain and inflammation in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Myofascial Release uses pinpoint pressure to reduce pain and stiffness and increase your range of motion, so you can get back to the activities you love! Myofascial Release techniques can quickly restore normal range of motion and function from soft tissue injuries. Chiropractic care can help with:
Millions of Americans suffer from tingling, numbness, burning, weakness, or even a deep stabbing pain in their hands or feet, known as peripheral neuropathy. Damage to the peripheral nerves can also impair movement, sensation, and even interfere with the functions of glands and organs. For individuals dealing with neuropathy, there are multiple causes leading to a condition known as hypoxia. Hypoxia occurs when nutrients and blood flow are cut off from the nerves. The lack of oxygen causes the nerves to slowly die. Neuropathy cannot be treated by pills or lotions because they do not restore the blood flow bringing the oxygen and nutrients your nerves need.
At Summit Spine and Wellness we have a program to help those who suffer from neuropathy. Our program works to restore the proper blood flow, which supplies oxygen and nutrients, to the nerves using a cutting-edge, 3-step process using light therapy, nerve stimulation, and nutrition.

Massage Therapy is a natural treatment providing therapeutic care to soft tissue, helping you deal with pain and stress. Massage therapy manipulates soft tissues, primarily focusing on tendons and muscles to reduce inflammation, pain, and other physical symptoms. This therapy is often combined with chiropractic care for optimum results. Massage therapy deals with your soft tissues problems, and chiropractic care treats your nervous and musculoskeletal systems.
Acupuncture is an essential component of traditional Chinese medicine typically used to treat pain. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is used as a technique for “balancing the flow of energy or life force” — called Chi or Qi. Chinese practitioners believe your life force flows through pathways — called meridians — in your body. Acupuncture uses very thin needles inserted at specific points along the meridians to rebalance your energy flow.
Western practitioners typically use acupuncture points to stimulate muscles, nerves, and connective tissue. Increasingly, acupuncture is used for stress management and overall wellness. Acupuncture can be used to stimulate your body’s natural painkillers.

Your feet are your body’s foundation. Structural imbalances there can lead to constant pain in your back, hips, and/or knees. A foot scan can reveal any issues. Then custom foot orthotics can give your arches the support needed to keep your body balanced and pain-free. Over-the-counter shoe inserts can be found at many different pharmacies and shoe stores. Often, these will work satisfactorily. However, when you have more serious foot conditions, a customized foot orthotic will work considerably better. These custom-fitted orthotics will be created specifically to fit your foot. They are also constructed of stronger, better materials and will last longer.
