Everyday functions and movements impact your body’s alignment. Sitting, standing, walking, running ⁠— every movement is connected and feeds into your body’s posture and general alignment. One little piece being out of place can impact all other areas of the body. That’s why we have chiropractors. To get your body back to its proper alignment and things functioning as they should, pain free.

Chiropractic care focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system and restoring proper alignment ⁠— especially of the spine. Our chiropractors practice conservative chiropractic medical care and take a hands-on approach to restore proper function to the spine, extremities and associated muscular system. 

Two common chiropractic treatment styles include the diversified chiropractic technique and active release therapy. The diversified technique encompasses a variety of treatments such as specific manual manipulation, trigger point therapy and soft tissue therapy. Active release therapy is a soft tissue system and movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.

Dr. Allison Gross

Chriropractor

Dr. Gross has been in practice since 1997 and at MRU Injury & Prevention Clinic since 2002. She takes considerable pride in the fact that she provides comprehensive care using a variety of techniques in her practice and does not hesitate to refer to her colleagues.

While improving spinal mobility and function is her primary focus, she also uses many different muscle therapy techniques including the following:

  • Kinesio taping
  • Trigger point release
  • Graston soft tissue mobilization to release scar tissue, adhesions, and tightness in muscles
  • Stretching and strengthening programs

She really enjoys the multidisciplinary collaboration amongst practitioners (medical doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, athletic therapists, and acupuncturists) at the MRU Injury & Prevention Clinic.
