We place our hands on the area as you move or we move you in order to precisely recreate your pain. By feeling it as you feel it and having an extensive knowledge of anatomy and function, we will pinpoint and teach you the root cause of your pain.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment
These are movement tests utilized to survey the entire body for dysfunction. Even though you have low back pain, it could be caused by a hip, knee or ankle issue, for example. The SFMA is how we find the bully (the cause, somewhere else) and the victim (your pain).
Motion Palpation Institute Adjusting
This chiropractic technique is the state-of-the-art in assessing and adjusting the spine and extremities. Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine is part of an elite network of chiropractors certified by the Motion Palpation Institute (MPI).
Active Release Technique
Active Release Technique: ART is a highly effective method for releasing scar tissue around muscles, ligaments and nerves. Scar tissue is much like velcro and velcro makes movement hurt. ART is THE technique for releasing the velcro. Few doctors are certified, and we are part of ART's "Elite Provider Network."
FAKTR - Instrumented Soft Tissue Manipulation
FAKTR (pronounced “factor”) stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab. An instrument is used to perform “cross fiber massage” over a problematic area while the patient moves to stretch, provoke or challenge the tissues. FAKTR is the gold standard for repairing tissue damage.

Functional Rehab Exercises
Our elite treatments change the way you move so you stop hurting and stop the "pattern" that made you start hurting. Stretches, that are unique to each patient, help us loosen what is tight or heal what is injured. Exercises train your brain to stabilize where stability is lost or move / sit / stand the way you were intended, so you stop the vicious cycle of causing your own pain. If you will help us by doing what we ask, we will keep you better, longer!
The jaw requires a specific knowledge set in order to fix. Our doctors know the jaw, its cranial nerves, the muscles that move it and the very complicated patterns of this "ginglymoarthrodial" joint. If your jaw or even face / ear is hurting, tight or popping, then you need us. We have trained with the best in the country to learn how to help you!
Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues (muscle "trigger points", fascia, tendons and ligaments, etc.) in order to provide pain relief and tissue healing.
