Areas of Practice


Chiropractic focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and the effects of these disorders on general health.  One of the most common therapeutic procedures of chiropractic is joint manipulation (adjustments).  At EBB, adjusting is just one facet of chiropractic. While adjusting has its place, deep tissue massage, stretching, muscular retraining in the gym, Kinesio taping, and other therapies are equally important and present in our treatments.

trigger point dry needling

Also known as Myofascial Acupuncture, dry needling uses acupuncture needles to stimulate the tightest point on a muscle allowing the overly tight fibers to release.  This highly effective treatment relieves both acute and chronic muscle pain very quickly. 


Acupuncture is a safe and effective medical modality that promotes your body’s natural healing abilities and improves health, vitality and function. This is achieved by inserting thin, single-use needles into very specific energy points throughout the body.  While many of our clients come in with a concern or fear of needles, almost all of them feel little or no discomfort during acupuncture treatments.                                                                                        

Muscular retraining 

When patterns are out of balance, we tend to overuse the strong muscles and avoid using the weak ones.  These imbalances lead to chronic pain and tightness that cannot be relieved by massagechiropractic or other physical techniques alone. We focus our gym training on changing faulty patterns and establishing the correct ones for pain-free movement.


Deep tissue work is combined with almost all treatments at EBB. Deep tissue massage is a firm, manipulative practice that uses pressure and movement to release deep layers of tissue including tendons and fascia.  Deep tissue massage, combined with our other modalities, greatly improves healing and restores proper function.
