If your body is an instrument; your Chiropractor is the conductor.

This is because at MYo Lab, we take the extra time, knowledge, skill, and practices. From initial assessment and during your treatment plan we discover the source of what may be holding you back in living your fullest, healthiest, pain-free life.
Using evidence-based and proven practices, we offer true corrections to pain and dysfunction that exceed guidelines of our practices, expertise, and patient values. Our diversity in care and Practitioners means completely personalized programs with individualized results. Whether your care involves stability and rehabilitation, underlying mobility issues, strength development, or acute pain prevention and relief.
Your first visit to MYo Lab is focused on taking the time to properly determine the cause and patterns of your pain—why it’s there and what’s making it worse—and establishing a proper diagnosis. Afterwards establishing your history and performing a movement assessment, your Chiropractor can focus on areas with dysfunction to determine any contribution to your pain.
Afterwards, your Chiropractor will go over your personalized care plan, and your road to pain free wellness has started. At MYo Lab, we don’t believe in a simple adjustment and a goodbye because we value the long-term health of our community.
Our Chiropractors are trained in a variety of modalities and utilize them on your care and wellness sessions with them. These modalities include: acupuncture/dry-needling, shockwave, low-level laser, and Graston. Please do not hesitate to ask your Chiropractor if you have any questions about these modalities and/or if you would like them used more in any of your sessions at MYo Lab.
