SOUTHPOINTE CHIROPRACTIC & FITNESS

  • SELECTIVE FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT ANALYSIS (SFMA) and FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREENING (FMS): A unique whole body movement analysisutilized by doctors and trainers to determine  the true cause of pain and predict future injury.  FMS Screenings are a standard part of the evaluation of athletes for the NHL and NFL drafts and are an excellent clinical evaluation tool.
  • DNS:   The concept of DNS is based on the scientific principles of developmental kinesiology (DK) i.e., the neurophysiological aspects of the maturing locomotor system.


  • Therapeutic massage: Therapeutic massage  works on a broader area of muscular and fascial tissue.  The movements of myofascial release treatments have been compared to kneading a piece of taffy- gentle stretching that gradually softens, lengthens, and pulls restrictions from the fascia.  Massage therapy is utilized  as a part of most patient encounters at Southpointe Chiropractic & Fitness.
  • Triton DTS Traction:  A safe and effective cutting edge  treastment for disc injuries.  The "Decompression" system has been shown to be helpful in difficult-to-treat nerve injuries of the neck and back including disc herniations.

Each visit at Southpointe Chiropractic & Fitness is a unique experience.   A treatment session may include electric muscle stimulation, massage therapy, exercise, stretching, spinal manipulations and other treatments.  Patients may receive home exercises to address their condition as soon as the first visit.  In addition, all procedures are monitored by our expert staff.
