Chiropractic

Chiropractic, also known as doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians, is a healthcare discipline that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, including the spine, nervous system and general everyday health.

Computerized Posture Analysis

Computerized Dynamic Posturography, or CDP, measures the systems responsible for your balance. Those systems need to receive proper information from the inner ear, vision, and the somatosensory nerves. A CDP verifies which systems are being used by your brain to maintain balance, as well as your motor abilities.
