Sulis is a Celtic term that loosely means "health and wellness."|
At Sulis we utilize chiropractic manipulative therapy, electrical therapeutic modalities, soft tissue massage, nutritional support, stretching and strengthening exercises to treat our patients. We often will refer patients for extended therapeutic massage, acupuncture, or other health care analysis. Our first focus is on relieving any pain that is present, then rehabilitating the injured area to make it more stable and to prevent chronic problems. We take pride in helping the patient become stronger and healthier and able to continue living an active life style.
