The best chiropractic services based on experience

 table used for chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic Adjustment

During chiropractic adjustments, or spinal manipulation, Dr. Stotler uses his hands to analyze spine motion and detect joints that are not moving properly. He then applies gentle adjustments to move these joints in the right direction.

chiropractic soft-tissue therapy

Manual Therapy Techniques

Manual therapy is used to address treat soft tissues and joint dysfunction. It differs from chiropractic adjustments due to the slower and use less forceful movements used. Soft-tissue manual therapy uses a non-invasive approach to treating muscles, joints and nerves helping your body to properly heal and maintain itself.

targeted exercise for chiropractic patients

Therapeutic Exercise

A specific, individualized, targeted exercise routine can speed recovery time, improve joint and muscle movement. Customized therapeutic exercise is used to build physical strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and functional movement. Our goal is to return our patients to a pain-free, fully functional lifestyle.

ultrasound equipment

Ultrasound Therapy

Therapeutic ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to help reduce pain, stiffness and spasms. This produces heat which helps reduce inflammation, increase blood flow and ease pain in joints and muscles.

chiropractic traction massage roller table

Intersegmental Traction

Traction can help to gently restore normal range of motion to your spine. It also helps promote muscle relaxation and reduce spasms. The patient lies face up on a table while rollers move up and down the spine, gently stretching the spine, alleviating pressure on pinched nerves and compressed vertebrae.

electric muscle stimulator used chiropractic care

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical muscle stimulation (Interferential Current Therapy) is used to increase blood circulation and reduce muscle spasms. Tiny amounts of low-level electrical impulses are used to create a pulsing sensation in the muscles. This prompts the body to release pain-relieving endorphins, encouraging natural healing.

moist heat pad therapy

Moist Heat Therapy

Moist heat is used to relieve stiffness, improve circulation and help ease muscle pain and soreness. Applying moist heat pads to an injured area helps enlarge blood vessels and increase blood flow to the surrounding muscle area. As the muscle heats up the improved blood flow aids in the healing process.

cold compress used in cryotherapy


Cold therapy (Cryotherapy) uses ice, cold towels, ice massage and compresses to reduce the temperature of tissues. Cryotherapy narrows the blood vessels which reduces blood flow to the affected area, numbing tissue pain and reducing muscle spasms.
