At ChiroWorks Care Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our San Jose office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques with traditional techniques and gentle, "no crack", low force chiropractic. Especially with the neck, traditional twisting type cervical adjustments are rarely used on patients. Specific adjustments are generally used for the neck and low back. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Anthony Tsai has training in various techniques for the young and old and even those who are a little apprehensive being new to chiropractic.
Therapeutic, Deep-Tissue, Sports Type Massage:
Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization,
A Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
The Graston Technique instruments provide excellent therapeutic effects compared to hands on massage for chronic pain and medical conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome. These tools are designed for muscle, fascia, ligaments, tendons and scar tissue. The benefits you will notice are softer muscle knots and less pain in fewer sessions. The doctor will perform the myofascial therapy & choose specific problem muscles to work with in one or two areas combining chiropractic and physiotherapy techniques.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you Dr. Anthony Tsai can provide some nutritional advice based on your individual needs.
