Why are we the right choice for you?

First the Why Not:

Currently, our therapy services are "out of network" with all third party insurances. While, this doesn't mean you can't be reimbursed for your visit, it does mean you will need to purchase our services up front. We make every effort to help you get paid back by providing a Super Bill for easy submission. We understand this can make our services difficult for some, but our commitment to value and quality make participating in-network impractical in the current insurance climate.

Now the Why:

  • You will work 1-on-1 with a Doctor of Physical Therapy for the entirety of your session.
  • Hands-On work heals, therefore we prioritize manual therapy techniques.
  • We are experts at Trigger Point or Functional Dry Needling and utilize this technique extensively when appropriate, and it is included in your session purchase.
  • While corrective exercise is critical, we teach you to perform them properly at your home  or gym instead of spending valuable sessions on things you could do on your own.
  • We believe fitness goals can be attained simultaneously with rehab goals and show you ways to begin or maintain a fitness plan without negatively impacting your recovery.
  • We are a small business committed to customer service and your success.

At Chain Effect it is our mission to provide a unique synergy between the most validated, up-to-date fitness concepts and premium 1-on-1 manual physical therapy.  Allow us to prove to you why we are the  best at helping our clients overcome chronic injuries, achieve life and fitness goals, and attain a level of performance  unimagined.

Dry Needling vs. Acupuncture

A conversation I have at some point with just about every client is: “What is dry needling and how is it different than acupuncture?”

Getting Your Vitamin D From Food

In our protein packed, low carb crazed society we often neglect the importance of vitamins and minerals to our bodies' crucial systems. In the winter months we can be at risk for lower Vitamin D levels since sunlight helps our skin naturally make it. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin important for our immune system, muscle and nerve function, and more notably, for aiding absorption of calcium and phosphorus to have strong bones and teeth. Peak bone mass is typically reached in women in their early 20s and in men by age 30. To combat the gradual decline of bone density which occurs as we age, a lifestyle rich in calcium and Vitamin D is critical.
