Physical Therapy Programs

Your program includes corrective or physical rehabilitation and treatment of a variety of structural or neurological conditions.

After your initial evaluation, you are presented with a treatment plan designed to correct the underlying cause of your condition.

Some of the most common conditions we treat:

To prevent long-term neck problems and avoid arthritis, correction of alignment and restored muscle balance is critical.

Correcting the cause of the pain will prevent chronic back problems and avoid more serious conditions from arising.

Restoring full range of motion of your shoulder is critical to prevent arthritis and future neck and upper back problems as well.

Regardless of the type a nerve or muscular component can be at play. Headaches can be resolved, regardless of how long you’ve suffered in most cases.

This pain can come from a variety of sources; the key is to isolate the actual source. It can be the hip itself, or from an imbalance of the lower back or leg. Once identified the problem can be properly treated and resolved naturally.

Tension and pain in this area is common but the cause varies. Neck issues or weak muscles are frequently at the root, but can be successfully treated.

Primarily for rehabilitation of shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, or back surgery

the surgery can be a complete success but without proper rehabilitation you won’t enjoy full range of motion or strength. We specialize in the full rehabilitation program you need to restore your joint to complete function.

It’s close to impossible to enjoy life and maintain a healthy activity level with painful feet. The doctors will identify the cause and treat it completely so you can enjoy being on your feet again.

It’s difficult to work when your hands or wrist are in pain. The cause may vary but our success rate for resolving such conditions is high, without the use of medication.

Drugs provide temporary help but don’t resolve the problem for good. We are excellent at diagnosing the real cause and sometimes that involves addressing internal inflammation as well.

If you are partial to sprains and strains it means something and that typically is an imbalance, weak ligaments or imbalanced musculature. We’ll identify the real root cause and fix it at that level.

Functional Medicine Programs

A personalized and comprehensive program that identifies the root cause(s) of your health problems.

This program gives us 4 – 12 months to complete a health and lifestyle makeover with the result of not only your regained health but typically elimination or reduction of any medication.

Some of the most common conditions we treat:

Pain can be coming from structural problems, for which we have our Chiropractic and Physical Therapy programs, but pain can also be from headaches or digestive problems or internal inflammation; the list of causes is long. The key is to identify the root cause of why your body is giving you pain and not ignore it by prescribing pain relievers. There’s nothing wrong with some relief, but concurrently the real cause must be identified or it’s going to continue to get worse.

This is a generalized term that can be associated with a wide variety of problems including bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, GERD, IBS and more. There is a cause to digestive upset, and we have the tools to diagnose what it is. You don’t have to wait until a disease is found and you don’t have to put up with an uncomfortable belly. It is important to not mask symptoms with drugs, but rather to naturally resolve them completely so that the digestive tract is functioning optimally. It is your “second brain” after all!

There are many causes of fatigue. Once conventional medicine rules out insomnia, thyroid problems or anemia, you are typically told it’s “normal” and to do you best to relax and get more rest. That isn’t getting to the root cause of the problem. Food reactions or sensitivities, inefficient digestion and hormonal imbalance are common causes, but there are others. Bottom line – you don’t need to put up with fatigue; let’s find it’s true root cause.

Our success rate for eliminating migraines is phenomenal. If you’re a sufferer, we realize that can sound incredible, but it’s no less true. 3 factors are frequently at play in migraines and if all 3 are not addressed, full resolution does not occur. This program does not require the use of medication.

More than 50% of Americans suffer from overweight and obesity. There are many causes. If you’re driven by cravings, have obesity in your family, or gained weight after a stressful period in your life or after having a baby, there is a solution. Maybe your weight has slowly crept up over time. Regardless of how the weight came on, we both know it’s not healthy and for long-term health it needs to be handled. Our programs are customized to you, involve no special foods or drugs. Warning: weight loss is slow and steady, not dramatic because that never lasts.

There are many causes of stress and sometimes it comes along with anxiety. We can’t control what the outside world throws at you, but we CAN control how your body reacts to it by optimizing the stress gland and hormonal balance in your body. This is a natural, drug-free program and it works. But the reason it works so well is that we use precision medicine to isolate the cause.

It’s a common problem but very important to resolve. Did you know that acid reducing medications, including over-the-counter drugs have dangerous side effects? Long-term digestive imbalance is created leading to more serious diseases. These drugs also weaken your bones. It’s impossible to have a truly healthy body with an unhealthy gut, but the good news is that it’s truly easy to remedy. It does require some dietary change for most people.

Whether seasonal or chronic, environmental allergies are not normal and something that can be remedied without drugs. Sound unbelievable? We know, but it is the case. When your body functions correctly it makes it’s own antihistamines, effectively stopping any symptoms of allergies, despite the continued presence of the trigger. Please note we are not referring to IgE food allergies.

Hormonal imbalance can manifest in a number of different ways. PMS, irregular periods, PCOS, endometriosis, fibrocystic breasts, lack of libido and fertility problems in women. While men can suffer with prostate problems, E.D., libido and fertility issues. There are a variety of causes, but our programs are tailored to each individual and how the imbalance developed. So many different parts of your body affect your hormones. Your gut, your liver, your adrenal glands and more. The key is to discover all the imbalance leading to your symptoms and normalize them naturally. We don’t find drugs are necessary to accomplish rebalancing.

Your skin is your largest organ and it predominantly is affected by your gut and hormone balance. Therefore, we address those two systems, as appropriate, when dealing with the cause of skin issues. We do not prescribe steroids or topical cremes, but instead isolate the real reason underlying your skin condition. Our success rate is excellent.

Two of our doctors wrote the book The Gluten Effect and have become well known in the field of celiac and gluten sensitivity. Removing gluten from the diet is critical but why isn’t it enough for most to feel fully regained health? We have the answer in what we call the secondary effects of gluten. It’s a natural program to address the damage that has occurred from gluten while balancing the organs and systems so affected. We utilize the most cutting-edge laboratory tests available to confirm a reaction to gluten and take out any guesswork.

This is by no means a definitive list. There are so many conditions and diseases that we're able to treat with functional medicine. Schedule an appointment with Root Cause to find out how we can help.

Your program is designed for you individually. Your team of clinicians works by your side plus they research and collaborate on your case between visits. A wide variety of services and testing procedures are provided for you to regain your best health.

Chiropractic Programs

Your program is designed to identify the underlying cause of your pain, discomfort, loss of motion, strength, or proper function. Spinal misalignments can affect both your structural and organ function which is why they are so important to correct.

After your initial evaluation, you are presented with a personalized treatment plan designed to correct the underlying cause of your problem by normalizing nerve function to your joints, muscles, and organs.

Some of the most common conditions we treat:

Neck pain can be caused from a variety of reasons. Trauma, such as a whiplash, is one, but often neck pain comes about from the mictro-traumas of daily living. The head is a heavy ball weighing 10-12 pounds. Set atop a rather small neck, if the alignment of the bones of the neck is not correct, or if the muscles are weak or spasmed, nerve irritation and pain can result. We isolate the exact root cause of your pain and design a treatment program to handle it so you don’t need to continue suffering.

Low back pain can be caused from a number of different causes. Therefore, to treat it successfully, the exact reason for the pain must be identified. You may have been suffering from discomfort for weeks or years, the pain may be fairly constant or it may come and go. The key is to get an in-depth examination and testing that reveals the exact cause of the pain and then embark on a program to correct it. Continuing to suffer with lower back pain not only impacts your ability to enjoy life, but it can create long-term issues with leg and foot strength, mobility and your ability to sit and sleep comfortably. We have excellent success treating low back pain.

Bursitis can occur in a variety of joints and it can be quite painful. The inflammation of the bursa, or fluid-filled sac, occurs due to a variety of causes, but it indicates the joint is not functioning normally and if left unhandled can result in a more permanent condition of arthritis and pain. Taking a medication for bursitis, can relieve the pain temporarily, but it does nothing to address the root cause of what is misaligned in your joint. When the drug wears off the pain will return, and the unhandled alignment issue will continue to worsen. Bursitis can be addresses successfully, naturally. We are happy to help.

You may have a herniated disc in your neck or lower back. Once a very serious condition where surgery is your only option has been ruled out, it’s critical to utilize physical therapy and chiropractic care to reduce the herniation as much as possible, while restoring proper alignment and strength to your back. Herniated discs can be corrected naturally without any drugs or surgery. Once we have evaluated you and reviewed any Xrays and MRIs needed, we will put together a treatment program to achieve your goals.

Sciatica is common and painful. The pain may begin in your lower back or buttocks or leg. It may be localized or shooting. It is indicative of an irritated nerve that emanates from your lower back. The root cause is typically in your lower back, although in some cases a spasmed muscle in the glute area can be at cause. Regardless of the cause the goal is clear – remove the source of the irritation from the sciatic nerve and rebalance any muscle or joints that have suffered any misalignment. Sciatic irritation is an area in which we have excellent success.

Depending on the age of the patient, scoliosis treatment is aimed at improvement, prevention from worsening, or improved mobility. We have a unique method and treatment methodology designed to work on the small muscles of the spine to improve the condition of scoliosis naturally.

Hip pain can occur due to a variety of causes. The hip itself can be misaligned, the muscles surrounding the joint may be imbalanced, the lower back or pelvis may be involved, and more. The elements contributing are many therefore each case is examined individually to determine the exact cause of the pain. Our success rate is high when treating hip pain.

Wrist and hand pain is common, since we typically are using our hands extensively all day at work. The very small muscles of the wrist and hand require optimal nerve flow and muscle balance. The nerves that travel to the wrist and hand emanate from your neck. You may experience no neck pain, but the root cause of the problem may still be there. An in-depth examination will locate the true cause of your hand or wrist pain and fix it at its source.
