Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest non-drug, noninvasive forms of health care available. Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments.

At Zock's, most treatments are manual (diversified) adjustments and muscle work (myofascial release and trigger point therapy). Dr. Zock also uses an activator, muscle stim, ultrasound, kinesio tape, and flexion distraction as needed. We also provide sports rehabilitation to help patients get back as soon as possible to their passion.
Doctors of chiropractic are trained to diagnose health care problems and refer out as needed. Dr. Zock often refers to primary care physicians for issues that are not musculoskeletal in nature and refer to orthopedists for further evaluation of musculoskeletal injuries.
Of course not! Each patient is given an individual treatment plan based on their symptoms and response to treatment. All of our patients have unique bodies that we give special attention to each.
