Our Tools & Techniques

ARPneuro Therapy

ARPneuro Therapy is measured in days – consistently 60-80% faster than traditional chiropractic or physical therapy.

ARP stands for Accelerated • Recovery • Performance. ARPneuro Therapy treatment decreases chronic pain, increases range of motion, accelerates recovery time and improves physical performance – all without drugs of any kind! This innovative therapy is different than every other type of pain treatment. All other therapies treat the physical symptoms and only provide temporary relief. ARPneuro Therapy finds and treats the source of that pain, where it originated, and eliminates the physiological pain.

Unlike all other protocols, our patented and proprietary high frequency, bio-electrical system is able to diagnose and pinpoint the neurological origin of the physical pain symptoms. ARPneuro Therapy treatment stimulates the soft tissues and increases blood flow to scar tissue and/or the source of the pain. It also creates new neuro patterns that re-train the nervous system, eliminate old muscle compensation patterns, and enhance the muscles ability to absorb force

Patient Benefits

While typical rehab for many sports related injuries is calculated in months, recovery with ARPneuro Therapy is measured in days-consistently 60-80% faster than traditional rehab.

ARPneuro Therapy is 100% drug and opioid free. Our procedure works on solving the underlying neurological patterns creating the pain in our lives. We find the source of the pain and retrain the neuro pathways to end it.

With ARPneuro Therapy there is less need for invasive, painful, surgeries and the rehab resulting from them. And, when rehab is required, ARPneuro Therapy makes it much faster and more successful.

Just ask any of the professional athletes and everyday people who have used our revolutionary therapy. ARPneuro Therapy improves the size and strength of the affecting muscle groups. The resulting enhanced mobility combined with our pain relief greatly increases sports performance.

Hivamat 200

Sports and Traumatic Injuries

For traumatic and sports injuries, Hivamat has a significant edema-reducing effect, directly stimulates self-mobilization in areas relieved of pain, and enables an earlier return to active forms of therapy and the activities of daily living. Hivamat Therapy is used by a majority of major college and professional teams.

Pain Syndromes
In indications such as Fibromyalgia, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, etc., accompanied by chronic pain, Hivamat has a strong pain-relieving effect. This establishes the possibility to tackle impairments in daily life, fatigue, muscle stiffness, fears and depression.

Movement Solutions


First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.

While the use of kinesiology tape is often associated with athletes such as Michelle Wie, Adrian Peterson and Jason Khalipa, medical professionals have been using it to alleviate a wide variety of ailments, not just sports injuries.


RockBlades are Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) tools used to treat muscle adhesions and pain. This is our first line of treatment for soft-tissue conditions.

Resistance Band Training

Keeping You Mobile and Flexible

As the body ages, tendons, muscles and ligaments lose water and as result become less pliable. However when you implement a band stretching program into your weekly exercise routine, it allows you to maintain and improve on joint mobility and muscle flexibility. A band’s pliability and construction is similar to a muscle and therefore easily allows you stretch muscles and joints in all direction. Free weights cannot be used as a stretching tool since they can only work in a single plane or direction.

Decreasing Exercise Induced Soreness

Lifting weight is going to result in joint and muscle trauma due to use of a constant resistance or force being applied to the muscle. Repeatedly performing this over several years will lead to joints breaking down. Appling a band’s accommodating ascending resistance is less traumatic on muscles and joints which over years allows individuals to exercise more often without the concern of added wear and tear on their joints.

Improve Movement Coordination

As the body ages and life becomes more sedentary, the body’s agility and coordination decrease. As a result, our exercise program needs to focus on helping maintain movement coordination and agility. Bands not only allow individuals to push, pull, press, squat and lunge but they also allow us to work on more coordinated movements of run, swing, throw and jumping. Once again, free weight are not able to simulate these movements.

Brain Stress Therapy

Brain Tap is a powerfully effective mind development tool designed to help you overcome the ill effects of the fight-or-flight response while achieving physical, mental and emotional balance.

This extensively researched light & sound technology creates a perfect symmetry of sound frequencies and light synchronization for the ultimate in binaural brainwave entrainment and relaxation. The combination helps guide you to a perfect balance of left/right brain synchronization and relaxed brainwave activity. In other words, BrainTap produces the relaxation response, giving your body precisely what it needs to get back in balance and reverse the effect of stress on the body.

At the same time, the BTT sessions that power your Brain Tap guide your mind to a state of laser-like focus so you can rid yourself of negative self-talk and achieve life goals!

Cox Instrument for spinal manipulation

This is the state-of-the-art chiropractic table that provides safe, gentle, and clinically effective clinical outcomes. The latest research now indicates when we perform a spinal manipulation, we are affecting the brain. The Cox technique adjusts your autonomic nervous system so you are not in fight or flight mode.

Motion Guidance

Motion Guidance is one of our main tools in our Neurological Performance Program. Most patients are visual learners and the Motion Guidance System allows for visual feedback during our active rehabilitation sessions. Patients find this tool more fun, and a superior way to reveal their body awareness during movement exercises.
