Services Offered at Skare Spine & Performance

Our standard treatment plans use a unique combination of therapies, allowing each patient to feel better faster so they can confidently return to the activities they love.

Chiropractic Adjustments 

Chiropractic adjustments consist of different joint manipulation techniques that restore motion by removing restrictions. They treat numerous symptoms, including back pain, neck pain, and headaches. 


Adjustments our clinic utilizes include:

  • Manual adjustments that employ a quick, controlled thrust to a targeted area of the spine or extremities 
  • Flexion distraction adjustments that use a special table to gently stretch and decompress the spine, relieving back pain by effectively treating the compromised joint
  • Instrument-assisted adjustments that offer highly targeted and advanced manipulation when using chiropractic tools designed specifically for enhanced adjusting


Dry Needling

Dry needling is a soft tissue therapy that treats tense muscles, increases healthy circulation, and reinforces the healing process when thin needles are placed in the skin over trigger points or areas of concern. 

The McKenzie Method 

This technique focuses on assessment, treatment and prevention of future back, neck, and extremity injuries. It allows us to identify imbalances, dysfunctions, and injuries by assessing patient movement through a series of exercises and stretches.

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Therapy

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Therapy helps rehabilitate specific injured areas of the body by applying a tourniquet to the limb as low-load exercises are completed. This method creates a response that promotes strength and muscle building without the typical amount of physical pressure being applied to the affected joints and soft tissues. 

Other services offered in our Rochester chiropractic clinic include:
