Meet our Chiropractors
It’s not time for a new technique, it’s time for a new premise…
At Rise Bodyworks in Alameda, our chiropractors work with a variety of techniques including cutting edge Chiropractic, Active Release Techniques, Physio-Therapy and Exercise Rehabilitation. This variety and combination of techniques help to resolve imbalances in the body from previous injuries, poor postural habits, and repetitive stress. Imbalances in the body can cause dysfunctional biomechanics, accelerating the process of joint degeneration, and leading to loss of function. Ultimately, physical sensations of pain go to work on the mind and emotions, creating a negative internal environment.
Here at Rise in Alameda, we recognize that individuals are unique and therefore require novel solutions. We adapt our protocols to fit the individual patient. You may or may not have pain, but if you’re like us, you want that extra bit of range of motion so that you can go farther, faster, longer and stronger. From the weekend warrior to the professional athlete, we all have asymmetries and imbalances that can be improved upon to increase performance. These arise from many different sources and can sometimes be as simple to correct as a heel-lift.
Low back, thoracic, or neck pain can be devastating. Maybe you don’t have pain yet, but you’ve noticed your posture has really taken a turn for the worse. We work to restore the natural spinal curves that you were born with, allowing your central nervous system to function properly while improving your posture. To accomplish this task we utilize cutting-edge chiropractic techniques, traction, soft-tissue care, and exercise.
Wellness aka “Don’t re-hab it, pre-hab it!”
Bottom line is this is the ultimate health paradigm. We are trained to seek healthcare when something has gone wrong or has gone to far. However, many of the things we seek care for are the result of habits that are damaging to our body. When we maintain a reasonably healthy lifestyle, most of the common chronic problems disappear, and when we do have an accident, our minds and our bodies are better equipped to deal with it. Here we partner with each other in this endeavor, receiving check-ups at intervals to maintain proper body symmetry, balance and biomechanics.

Active Release Therapy (ART)
Active Release Therapy (or ART) is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements. These treatment protocols -over 500 specific moves- are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.
