We provide Corrective Chiropractic Care plans. When we talk about correction, we want to make sure your body reaches optimum health potential. This correction occurs not only when you are out of pain, but when your body is functioning properly and your lifestyle habits are supportive of a long healthy life. Each patient is different and recommendations differ, our goal is to get you to the best of your best!
Our techniques are varied and our goal is to make your treatment as comfortable as possible while still getting the correction we need for optimal health. Our doctors practice a variety of techniques which can vary per patient ranging from Thompson Drop, Activator, Specific Prone,Flexion-distraction and Webster Techniques for our pregnant patients. Many people don’t know this but we also can adjust extremities. Wrists, elbows, knees, ankles etc. If it’s a joint that should move, our doctors hold additional certifications in upper and lower extremity techniques designed to get each joint to optimal function.
Chiropractic care is our passion. Chiropractic care has helped all of our doctors achieve health and we are excited to work with you towards your health goals. Remember, our bodies are innately designed to FEEL GOOD. In many many cases we can do this without the use drugs or surgery. With proper spinal alignment, healthy food, adequate exercise and stress reduction techniques, we can truly realize our individual bests!
What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy uses highly amplified light (laser) of the correct wavelength that can penetrate to deep tissues in our body. The process is called photobiomodulation. Our cells contain light receptors (specifically in the cytochrome C complex of the mitochondria). When these cells are struck by a sufficient amount of light, it increases cellular activity by increasing ATP production. This light also increases nitric oxide a signaling molecule that helps relax and dilate blood vessels, increasing local circulation (and healing!). This process helps to get inflammatory chemicals OUT and nutrients INTO the area to help improve the quality of the tissue and speed of tissue healing.
What does it treat?
- plantar fasciitis
- post surgical healing
- pulled muscle
- scar reduction
- and much more!
What does an average treatment plan look like with laser therapy?
While most patients receive laser therapy along with their chiropractic plan, some patients come in for laser therapy alone! For most conditions, we expect to see results in six to ten initial visits.
Does insurance cover it?
Some insurance plans will cover this service, if not we do offer cash discounts which can lower the price to $40 per visit with a package of ten treatments.

For 5000 years acupuncture has been a mainstay of treatment for many cultures. It is a Chinese system of healing which is concerned with restoring proper energy flow (Chi) to various organs, glands and tissues of the body on the premise that most diseases are a result of malfunction of disrupted energies. We offer needle acupuncture in conjunction with or apart from your chiropractic treatment. Many people ask us what acupuncture can treat. We find many people success with symptoms ranging from pain, low energy, headaches, stress, depression, addiction… the list goes on and on. Here is a pretty good list of other conditions for which people commonly find success with acupuncture.
Dry needling is a technique that releases muscle tension and trigger points. Using a variety of needles, this technique can release deep tension from muscles and release trigger points that may be resistant to release with massage therapy. At our office, we can use a combination of dry needling and acupuncture to achieve optimal results!
Does it hurt?
Depending on which area of the body is receiving treatment, dry needling can produce an achy sensation, especially if you are receiving treatment in the gluteal, hamstring, or low back. For other areas, like shoulders for example, you may not even notice you’re being needled!
How do I know if I need it?
Like laser therapy, dry needling can help most soft tissue issues, and specifically shines with releasing tense muscle tension and trigger points.
Nutrition & Weight Loss
At Gard Wellness Center we offer a range of nutritional products to support in the health and healing of our patients. We carry a basic line of Standard Process supplements and full body cleanses as well as full service weight loss programs such as our Functional Weight Loss program. Due to the rising number of overweight and obese people in America (currently 67%) and diseases which result from poor health and obesity, we feel strongly about the importance of maintaining proper weight. With an option to meet all needs, we can assist our patients with weight loss, the first step on the path to optimal health.
We offer the functional nutrition weight loss program.
We offer a range of massage techniques in conjunction our Corrective Chiropractic Care plans. We work with a select group of Licensed Massage Therapists who focus on therapeutic massage to targeted areas which support the correction process. Gard Wellness Center therapists have additional training in lymphatic drainage, pregnancy massage, sports massage and many other styles to assist on your healing journey. In some cases, we will recommend Myofascial Release as an adjunct to your chiropractic corrective care plan to decrease painful and inflamed muscles.
