Services We Offer

We utilize cutting-edge technology and procedures to help you achieve faster results and better outcomes.

  • Deep Tissue Laser – This is the use of light energy to produce a biological effect on the injured tissue to accelerate healing and facilitate improved function and mobility.
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization – This is an effective procedure using RockBlades that breaks down soft tissue adhesions that restricting muscle and joint function. It enhances recovery time following acute injury and highly effective treatment for chronic conditions that have not responded well with other types of conservative measures.
  • RockTape – A specialized taping protocol that decreases your pain perception. It is highly effective in controlling your pain by supporting your movement, it helps with postural training and injury recovery, and it can help you perform better.
  • Functional Movement - The goal is not to be good at the basic skills and move on, it is to master and build upon them. We work to strengthen your body in three dimension and not your typical push/pull, up/down exercises. This approach to your care will allow you to go harder, faster, stronger, and longer with confidence!

Dr. Chris has a special interest in helping the athlete return to his/her sport. Let’s face it, athletes get injured. As a former collegiate hockey player, I’ve been through my fair share of injuries and surgeries. At the root of my optimal performance was chiropractic care (I am so grateful that I was introduced to it a young age). If you are an injured athlete looking for a quick return to your sport and/or interested in performing at your best, Dr. Chris is your guy!

Common Misconceptions

The biggest misconception with chiropractic care is that we only treat back pain, sciatica and neck pain. As listed above, I treat many musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. In many of these conditions, your primary care physician (if you see them first) will probably refer you to Physical Therapy instead of a chiropractor. If this sounds all too familiar, take a stand and choose Dr. Chris and the Massachusetts Chiropractic and Performance Center!
