Physical Rehabilitation: Achieve Optimal Healing

Chiropractic Care: Enhance Your Body’s Biomechanics
Chiropractic care works on the premise that misalignments in or injuries to your spine, joints, muscles, and ligaments can negatively impact your tissues, nervous system, and overall health. Through specific and controlled adjustments or manipulations, chiropractors can directly, and manually, address issues like pain, restricted movement, or numbness.
These corrections may also help in improving muscle strength and the full potential movement of each joint. For this reason, these techniques are used to treat functional limitations and impairments caused by trauma or certain medical conditions. People with these conditions choose chiropractic care as a safer, less painful, and more affordable alternative to conventional treatments like medication and surgery.
Regardless of your age, condition, and medical history, there’s a treatment option for you at LifeQuest Physical Medicine and Rehab.

Headache and Migraine Relief
We provide our headache and migraine patients with a revolutionary treatment protocol that provides lasting pain relief. The MiRx Protocol is a treatment program designed to cure headaches, facial pain and head pain. The protocol is made up of two parts. The first stage of treatment stops the reaction of the nervous system and alleviates the headache pain. This is referred to as the medical component. The second stage of the MiRx Protocol treats and rehabilitates the underlying condition, which is the physical component. These two combined can effectively eliminate the conditions causing your headache or face pain. These two components work together to provide long-term headache relief.
Food Sensitivity Testing
The Immuno Bloodprint has been helping people "Eat Well, Feel Well and Live Well" for years. This simple, affordable blood test can help identify food intolerances or hidden food allergies that may be the cause of chronic conditions such as arthritis, attention deficit (and hyperactivity) disorders, autism, chronic fatigue, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, otitis media and more.
Biotek is a blood test that can identify possible food allergy and intolerance. Food specific IgA and IgG have been utilized in research settings as a tool for a guided elimination diet in patients with food-related complaints. IgA and IgG antibodies are indicators of antigen exposure and are not directly indicative of allergic disease. IgE antibodies are indicators of allergic disease, and Biotek's standard, curve based method for our semi-quantitative allergen-specific IgE ELISA & quantitative chem illuminescence follows World Health Organization standards. These standards increase immunoassay sensitivity again a broad range of allergen concentrations, allowing for the detection of minute levels of IgE antibodies in a serum specimen for accurate assay performance. This respect for global standards and attention to detail guarantees the highest quality antibody testing for patients.
Vitamin Deficiency Testing
Micronutrient testing is a blood test that analyzes how well the body utilizes over 30 vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Knowing what vitamins and minerals are deficient in your body could help with many conditions such as: fatigue, weight management, inflammation and many more. The simple test could change your everyday lifestyle.
Knee Rejuvenation Program™
The Knee Rejuvenation Program™ is a multi-faceted, natural approach, which can give you long lasting results. Our team that consists of Chiropractic, Physical Rehab, Physician Assistant and Massage Therapists have an integrated approach that combines:
Trigger Point Injection (TPI)
Our chiropractor or Physician's Assistant will first diagnose the root cause of your muscular pain and determine if it is being caused by a trigger point or points. Once the trigger point (or points) have been located, we will use a very thin needle to break up muscle tissue and fascia and then inject a local anesthetic (to numb and trick the muscle to relax). Treatment only takes a few minutes and several trigger points can be injected during the same appointment. Patients who have experienced our trigger point injections report immediate pain relief and are usually able to resume normal activities because the trigger points relax and stop hurting.
Once our chiropractor or Physician Assistant have diagnosed the root cause of muscular pain and determine if it is being caused by a trigger point or points our Physician Assistant will insert very thin needles into the trigger point (s). This will help break up muscle tissue and fascia allowing the muscles to relax and stop hurting.
Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS)
PENS therapy combines the features of acupuncture and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). PENS is performed with needle electrodes that are placed in close proximity to the painful area to stimulate peripheral sensory nerves in the soft tissue.
