Extremity adjusting is used to correct joints anywhere in the body that aren’t moving properly. Extremity manipulation provides excellent results for many patients and often helps them avoid having surgery.

Professionally Advised Rehabilitation

Research has shown that most patients improve faster and stay better longer with “Core Strengthening” or stabilization exercises. These are a series of exercises, performed on a stability ball, that help to strengthen the stabilizing muscles of the back and neck. The protocols can be performed in only 10-15 minutes 5 times a week and will minimize the probability of recurrence of your symptoms.

These exercise protocols were developed by one of the country’s top fitness experts and personal trainers and are individually prescribed by Dr. Holding after obtaining a thorough understanding of your condition and health history.

Dr. Holding is a Board Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician and a Certified Personal Trainer.
