With more than 20 years as a licensed chiropractor, Dr. Ralph Kruse knows how to treat the spine. But unlike most chiropractors, he can also heal rotator cuff injuries, tendonitis, bursitis, and other musculoskeletal conditions. That's because the doctor also brings professional certification in chiropractic orthopedics to the table, rounding out a career spent not only treating his own patients, but also authoring scientific studies on spinal issues and prenatal back pain.
At his office, Dr. Kruse specializes in a manipulation called Cox Flexion-Distraction, which uses a special table to gently adjust each vertebra and help treat a number of spinal conditions and disc problems. He also treat sports injuries with kinesio taping, a process that uses special tape to lift the skin and reduce inflammation. The center also has a holistic side—both Dr. Kruse and his chiropractic colleague, Dr. Olding, are also trained in acupuncture. They merge these skills with the training of four licensed massage therapists and a muscle-activation-technique specialist to heal patients inside and out with a number of full-body treatments. Once the doctors have treated the source of pain, the team can also customize an exercise program to reestablish balance and strengthen muscles.
