Chiro Effect Chiropractic

Is proud to announce IASTM Therapy. Our Massage Therapists have special IASTM training. It is a simple, yet effective, manual therapy technique that will help you achieve better results.


IASTM is not aggressive and does not cause excessive tissue damage and bruising

  • IASTM does not replace your hands – it compliments your hands by adding another layer of soft tissue assessment and treatment.

Easy To Use

  • 1. Apply lubricating balm on skin.

  • 2. Using the rounded edges of the tool, apply moderate pressure whilst gliding along the skin. This does not hurt!

  • 3. Enjoy your relaxed muscles after only a few minutes!

Clinically Proven Technique

Sidekick scrapers are based on a technique known as Gua Sha, a 2000-year-old Eastern medicine practice. By applying our tool against the skin, it releases adhesions underneath that were causing pain and impingement.

A clinical trial conducted by the University Duisburg-Essen, Germany, showed a 26% overall decrease in pain 7 days after applying the technique. Other clinical trials conducted demonstrate a range of positive benefits, including anti-inflammatory effects and increased blood flow.

Pediatric Chiropractic

The number of children seen by chiropractors has been on the rise. In 2015,  about 17 percent of chiropractic patients were under age 18, 7 percent were those under age six (The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners). This may result from the research confirming the safety and effectiveness of pediatric chiropractic. In a study done by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, chiropractic care was not only confirmed as safe, but noticed by parents to improve their children’s sleep, behavior, and immune system function.



Many are still surprised to see young children in our office, especially newborns...but as a new mother recently shared with our front desk, being born is hard work! 95% of infants have spinal misalignments following the birthing process. After being stuck in one position for several months, babies may develop directional preferences due to uneven tissue growth. “The goal of treatment is to restore motion to the joints and balance the tissues to keep everything as biomechanically even as possible. “Taking the tension off from day one can help allow for optimal growth and development.”


Chiropractic care is safe, effective, and incredibly beneficial for every member of your family. Call our office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jeff!

 Prescribed Medication vs. Spinal Manipulation

Patients should be informed of non-pharmacological therapies for low back pain before using riskier, less effective treatments. Manual-thrust manipulation, performed by chiropractic physicians, achieves a greater short-term reduction in pain compared with common medical treatments.
