We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Joey Vrana have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment. In addition to traditional manual methods, both doctors offer lower force techniques (Thompson & Flexion-Distraction Techniques) and/or instrument adjusting (Activator Technique) options to fit their patient's needs.
Prenatal & Pediatric Care
Many people do not realize that choosing Chiropractic & Acupuncture for expectant mothers and children of all ages (newborn to adolescents) is both safe and recommended for a variety of conditions.
Prenatal Chiropractic & Acupuncture Care is important throughout all stages of pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments help promote optimal function of the nervous system--this will aid in conception and fetal development. There is a growing number of research studies to support use of Chiropractic & Acupucnture to aid in dealing with common pregnancy related issues, like back pain, headaches, muscle aches, morning sickness, etc. In addition, both support a healthier, easier birthing and labor process.
Pediatric Chiropractic & Acupuncture Care is rapidly becoming more widespread and accepted. Children and adolescents deal with a variety of stressors in today's world--Physical (birth trauma, falls/accidents, athletic demands), Chemical (pollutants, food additives), Emotional (fear/anxiety, peer pressure). Chiropractic & Acupuncture help their tender, yet resilient, bodies and nervous systems respond to those stressors. A large body of research supports Pediatric Chiropractic & Acupuncture Care for children dealing with conditions like Colic, Asthma, Ear Infections, Bed Wetting, ADHD, Headaches, Dysmmenorhea, and many more. Starting Chiropractic & Acupuncture Care with young people helps nurture the idea of wellness care and personal responsibility for health and well-being in the child/adolescent mind.

Chiropractic hit the spotlight for athletic competition in the 1968 Olympic Games. Quickly, athletes began noticing the "extra edge" that chiropractic provided. Studies have been done to compare performance between chiropractic athletes and athletes not receiving chiropractic care. Across the board, the competitors that received adjustments prior to testing demonstrated at least a 30% increase in the following: SPEED, POWER, BALANCE, AGILITY, KINESTHETIC PERCEPTION, & REACTION TIME.
From ankle sprains to shoulder and knee pain, chiropractic adjustments and electric acupuncture help speed healing time. Athletes hate being told to sit out from competition. Our clinic helps get them back in the game faster! Dr. Joey is trained in dealing with sports injuries and has specialty training in extremity adjusting. Remember!! Prevention is KEY! It is easier to STAY WELL than to GET WELL!!
Acupuncture is one of the oldest types of medicinal treatment known to mankind. The Chinese began using acupuncture over 4,000 years ago, and it has been the subject of continuous study and clinical experience since that time. It's finally gaining widespread acceptance in the U.S. as a method and system of health care. Each year new scientific studies are published validating the effectiveness of acupuncture. We believe that combining Acupuncture with Chiropractic care allows the patient to reach optimal results more effectively.
The doctors recently accompanied Dr. Richard Yennie & The Acupuncture Society of America to visit Beijing & Shanghai. While in China, the doctors were a part of the USA representation at the Beijing Symposium on Integrative Medicine. They studied Qi Gong and Traditional Chinese Medicine with Master Wan and his students. Since returning from the trip, the doctors have focused their efforts to bring a new energy to their patients--combining Eastern & Western approaches--to truly maximize patients' potential.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and
healthy food choices to enhance our patient's return to optimal health. Do
you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how
these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Joey
Vrana can provide a structured nutritional program based on your
individual needs. We believe in keeping things simple. Come check out our "Doc's Favorites" selection of quality daily adult/child multivitamins, fish oil, B-complex supplements, herbal products, prenatal vitamins, probiotic, and more.
