Chiropractic Adjustment

We  can administer a variety of manual chiropractic adjustment techniques to normalize your joint mobility, spinal alignment and neurological function. In addition to manual techniques such as the Diversified or Thompson techniques, we also offer instrument-based Arthrostim treatment for maximum precision with minimal discomfort.

Leander Flexion Distraction Therapy

Our mechanical Leander flexion distraction  and intersegmental  traction tables allow us to administer safe degrees of mechanical traction force to the spinal column. This can greatly relieve disc problems and nerve impingement caused by injuries or chronic degenerative conditions.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is prescribed for injuries to the fascia (the connective tissue that surrounds muscles) that are producing stiffness, pain and immobility. This technique loosens the tissues so you can enjoy a greater pain-free range of motion.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are painful muscle knots that refer pain to various points in the body. Trigger point therapy manipulates and loosens these knots using repeated pressure and release cycles, accompanied by breathing exercises. Once the knots are gone, so is your referred pain.

Personalized Corrective Exercises

Dr. Gottschling has completed over 300 hours of post graduate training in exercise rehabilitation to prescribe specific exercises that help ensure that an injured body part regains full strength and mobility. We use in office, supervised functional exercises and intentionally “low tech” back exercise protocols  that are specific to your condition, and once completed  you can continue  at home. We may also recommend a customized selection of unsupervised corrective exercises to help you maintain a more normal posture and spinal alignment, in which turn can help you avoid future injuries.


Physiotherapy serves as a useful complement to other forms of natural healing. We can prescribe electric muscle stimulation, traction, ultrasound, heat, cold and other forms of physiotherapy to help you rehabilitate a soft tissue injury or experience drug-free relief from chronic pain.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues (muscle “trigger points”, fascia, tendons and ligaments, etc) resulting in pain relief and restoration of healthy physiology. It is not Acupuncture and has a very different intent, philosophy and protocol.

Research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, normalizes biochemical and electrical dysfunction of motor endplates, and facilitates an accelerated return to active rehabilitation. A variety of musculoskeletal conditions typically respond well to dry needling. Conditions include: Plantar Fasciitis, Acute/Chronic injuries, Headaches, Neck/Back pain, Tendinitis, Muscle Spasms, “Sciatica”, Hip/Knee pain, Muscle strains, “Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow”, Overuse injuries, etc.

On Site X-Ray facilities

Should imaging be needed, x-rays can be take of the spine and extremities.

Custom Foot Orthotics (arch supports)

The orthotics we use are custom made for the patient. These are designed not only to relieve foot complaints, but also to restore proper foot biomechanics. We use Sole Supports products that are custom calibrated to your weight, foot flexibility and activity level, something you don’t get with an inexpensive, off the shelf product. Common conditions that can be helped with orthotics and treatment include plantar fasciitis, bunions, flat feet, high arches, IT band friction syndrome, patellar tracking syndrome, shin splints, lower back pain, Achilles tendonitis, and foot pronation. Orthotics can greatly help runners by correcting over pronation and restoring proper foot propulsion and biomechanics. This translates into improved speed, power and balance for the runner.

Decompression traction

This type of spinal traction can be done on the neck or lower back for common complaints of sciatica, low back pain, neck pain, upper extremity pain/tingling, herniated/bulging/slipped discs, degenerative disc pain, facet syndromes and some spinal stenosis cases. Decompression therapy is a comprehensive program that is designed to rehabilitate, relieve or reduce pain, and promote healing in damaged tissues and spinal structures. Depending on your specific condition, electric muscle stimulation, ice therapy, ultrasound, and rehabilitation exercises  may also be utilized. A back brace may also be used temporarily to improve core support. The traction portion of treatment typically lasts 20-30 minutes.
