What is Muscle & Joint Therapy?

Muscles and bones are meant to move. Movement is the key to life. Overuse, however, causes injuries. Overused muscles and joints cause pain resulting in JMLT (joints, muscles, tendons, & ligaments) to become stiff and infiltrated with scar tissue. If you’re in pain, it’s essential to re-integrate your muscles and bones, allowing a pain-free life and long-term health. To do this, you need Muscle & Joint Therapy. Muscle & Joint Therapy is based upon proven scientific principles and cutting-edge therapies, resulting in The 3 Keys To Living Pain-Free. These are:

.REMOBILIZE Stiff Joints: Chiropractic, Instrument-Assisted Adjusting 
.RESTORE Strength: Pilatescore strength, muscle or muscle group specific rehab.
Whether you are a ranked athlete or looking to get out of pain, the Muscle and Joint Clinic will get you in top-working order, quickly and effectively. We will restore your motion and your life.

We Love What We Do

I grew up wanting to help people, though I fortuitously became a doctor. I was set to go to business school, as I had pursued natural resource economics in college and worked for an energy consulting firm. Energy is a key resource, so producing and using it more efficiently helps our economy and people. That is how I saw I could help the world.


Until a very good friend’s life was virtually saved by chiropractic. She had spend two years with horrific intestinal problems: she had uncontrollable bowels. She received diagnoses from a variety of practitioners: medical doctors to acupuncturists to nutritionists. Nobody could actually help her though. Until she saw a chiropractor.


Why see a chiropractor for intestinal problems? Because the nerves that control the intestines are affected by the vertebra and the muscles around them, sometimes very profoundly. And chiropractic did help her, dramatically. No longer bed-ridden, she was back to teaching, traveling, and leading a very active life. When I saw the positive effects on her life, I had an epiphany. I wasn’t looking to change, but being a healthcare provider was my calling. I knew it at a gut level. I could help people, as I had always wanted to. And that passion still drives me today.
