Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the muscle-skeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Active Release Techniques
Active Release Techniques (ART) works by releasing the level of tightness or scar tissue formation that has formed as a result of injury overuse or even postural imbalances. The tissues are worked to fix injuries within muscles, tendons, ligaments, and between nerves to allow for improved tissue texture, tension, movement, and function. Dr. Carter combines ART with his adjustments to allow for a dramatic change in comfort, flexibility, and function.
Cold Laser Therapy
Using cutting-edge cold laser therapy at our Buffalo location, Dr. Carter can treat all kinds of pain. Cold laser therapy is a form of phototherapy which involves the application of low power light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing. Cold laser therapy is used to increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation, and give pain relief.
Rock Tape / Kinesiology Tape
Unlike conventional taping, which prevents movement – RockTape allows full movement of a taped area. Through elastic properties and quick recoil, RockTape can help distribute forces to other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and even bones. Dr. Carter combines Rock Tape with adjustments to help decrease pain, improve range of motion, and increased support to injured tissues.
A modern twist on a traditional type of soft tissue work. We apply the principles of suction-based cupping with mobility and manipulation to apply a decompression effect on the underlying muscles and fascia. The results are improved blood flow, reduced tightness and restored movement.
