Doctors of Naprapathy are Connective Tissue Specialists

Naprapathy (Nuh-prah-pa-thee) is a licensed branch of manual medicine that focuses on the evaluation and treatment of neuromuscular and skeletal conditions.

Naprapathic Conditions

As a Naprapath I concentrate on the connective tissues including muscles, tendons, fascai, discs, and ligaments and how they relate to the structure of the body.

I encourage anyone with nagging injuries, or even just those run-of-the-mill aches and pains to look into Naprapathy. For me it’s been a really affordable approach to feeling great, and the physical benefits have been a tremendously pleasant surprise. Check it out for yourself–you won’t regret it!” … continued

My focus is to “restore balance and create movement” in these contracted tissues. Ligaments and fascia are stabilizers that act  like guide wires and nets in support and function of the musculo-skeletal system which is often the source of most back and neck pain. Postural misalignments can be the source of most back and neck pain. Postural misalignments can be the source of muscle aches, tendonitis, and joint pain.
