Dr. Elizabeth Brieden wants potential patients to know that chiropractic medicine doesn’t just tend to back and neck pain. In her 21 years as a licensed chiropractor, she has used her skills to treat soft- and hard-tissue problems, fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches, and other ailments. From Cornerstone Chiropractic & Wellness Center's ultra-modern facility, she and her team perform such healing modalities as chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic exercise, and cooling cryotherapy, which numbs the body to reduce muscle spasms in quadriceps that get too excited when they see a pair of running shoes. The clinic also offers chiropractic massage, which can augment the effects of Dr. Brieden's treatments by removing toxins, improving circulation, and increasing flexibility.
