Our Sigma Doctor provides spinal correction utilizing the Ultralign Spinal Treatment System. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a sigma doctor who cares about utilizing the most advanced techniques, Dr. Barry Whyte has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Chiropractic instrument adjusting has been around for many years, however the results of these adjusting instruments have always depended on the ability and system used by the doctor. The Ultralign Spinal Treatment by Sigma Instruments uses specifically designed software and sensor devices that help the chiropractor make better decisions on which spinal levels are involved, determine frequency of correction and provide instant feedback during the adjustment. The quality of the adjustment is still determined by the ability of the Sigma Doctor to interpret the data on screen and determine best placement of the adjusting instrument. The Ultralign Spinal Treatment is safe and may be painless for a majority of clients.

It is important to understand that dysfunction in your feet can lead to problems up to your ankle, knees, hips, back, and even neck!
Collagen Induction Therapy (Microneedling)
Microneedling is most often used to improve the appearance of age-related fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars such as those resulting from acne. The procedure can be used on the face, except within the orbital rim, and elsewhere on the body.
Although collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a comparatively new procedure, it has already gained popularity among clinicians and their clientele. Microneedling with a state-of-the-art device such as SkinPen® is versatile, minimally-invasive, and requires little downtime. CIT is simple and can be quite effective — as long as all aspects of the procedure are handled appropriately.
Radial pressure waves offer a non invasive treatment solution for long term insertion and soft tissue pathologies. Local treatment of the affected area will enhance and reset the healing pattern, while reducing pain and improving function. With very few negative side effects, Radial Pressure Wave therapy is indicated for conditions that are normally very difficult to treat, and is now widely used for many therapeutic and wellness applications.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to Ultralign Spinal Treatment care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help.
