From high school athletes to fierce competitors to desk-sitters, we are dedicated to finding what’s causing your discomfort and efficiently getting you back out there, living in comfort.
You’re a unique person with unique needs, goals, and injuries. Because of that, we offer an array of chiropractic services so we can manage your case with the individualization and attention it deserves.
It’s important to work with a team that believes in the body's natural healing power and gives it the boost it needs to heal. We do that by implementing the optimal solutions for you. In many cases, we’ll design a wellness strategy that incorporates more than one service, so you get a faster, safer recovery.
Some of the chiropractic services we offer include:
Chiropractic Adjustments or Spinal Manipulations
Adjustments are quick, controlled, and highly targeted manual thrusts to affected areas of the body. This method often offers an immediate reduction of pain and improvement of motion. We usually perform adjustments on the spine; however, they can be used on other compromised areas of the body as well.
Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) and Graston Technique
IASTM relies on the help of specially designed tools that reduce adhesions and scar tissue. We often use these instruments on patients who have had surgery or been in a traumatic accident. The stainless-steel tools provide super-targeted support to the affected areas and quickly restore irregularities to the soft tissues and joints.
Inserting very thin needles into the skin above the injured soft tissues, we can alleviate pain and restore function and circulation. The needle makes a minor tear in the tissue, and the body responds by sending blood and oxygen to it, revitalizing the injured tissues.
This decompression therapy uses suction to lift the fascia (the casing that holds tissues in place), muscles, and skin so circulation can get to the affected area. Patients typically receive fast restoration of movement patterns and decreased tension in the soft tissues.
Taping enforces comfort by averting pain impulses to the brain through tension that lifts the affected tissues. The process allows fluids and oxygen to get to the area efficiently and heal the injury.
We use tape on many active patients; however, it’s also an excellent resource for those needing posture and movement correction.
Physical activity is vital to your overall health. Exercise increases strength and stamina, and invites focus and mental and emotional health. Our team provides specific corrective exercises to those suffering from soft tissue and joint dysfunction.
With the right exercise program, we will restore full function as we strengthen your body, improving performance and minimizing the opportunity for re-injury.
Stretching the soft tissues is great for the body and for helping it support you. We’ll create a tailored stretching program for you that will improve your movement patterns and flexibility as it treats your pain points.
Sports Rehabilitation / Medicine
We are a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician clinic, which means we have extensive training and education on how to support athletes through rehabilitative care, training, and sports-related injuries.
At Better Chiropractic, we’ve seen firsthand how massage therapy can complement chiropractic treatments. We design healing plans that you will get the most out of, which often means combining methods for excellent results. Our team uses collaboration to get you out of our clinic as quickly and safely as possible.
Whether you want to gain or lose weight, we have the resources to help. Understanding appropriate calorie intake for your weight, height, and activity level, learning about macronutrients, and guiding you through proper fats, carbs, protein, and proper hydration are just a few ways we can get you on the right path to meeting your health goals.

"Today was my first visit here, the second time ever at any chiropractor. Dr. Bates came highly recommended by a colleague who works in spine surgery. Even still, I was a little apprehensive about chiropractic care but in enough pain that I realized I needed the help.
Dr. Bates was very kind and patient with me. He asked what my specific concerns were and then explained, very thoroughly, how and why those outcomes happen and what he was doing specifically to screen for and make sure that those things would not happen. He did a thorough exam and addressed what needed addressing without just doing everything and seeing what would work. During the treatment, he continued to talk me through everything that was happening and made me feel very comfortable.
I feel much improved after the visit!! He did not try to sell me a long-term package but I will return for some follow-ups until things are 100%. The front desk was very friendly and helpful! The office was neat and clean. The pricing was straightforward and fair. Very glad I found this office!!"
