At Midwest Muscle & Joint Clinic we take pride in our examination and assessments with every patient. Typically, a first visit can be anywhere from 30-45 mins. This may seem like a long time, but for us to properly diagnosis and have a plan of action for treatment, we make this visit very thorough yet as efficient as possible.
All of our treatment and therapy consists of not only chiropractic care but also corrective exercises. Research suggests that when we combine manipulation with rehabilitation, we not only see shorter treatment plans but also lower healthcare costs.

Sports Physicals are an essential (KSHSAA required) assessment for athletes. They are not only used to determine if an athlete is healthy enough to play sports, but is also used to evaluate and prevent the risk of future injuries. With every Sports Physical we go above-and-beyond what is necessary to assess and document by including a complimentary Functional Movement Screen.
Using silicone cups, the goal of cupping is to create suction in order to facilitate the release of tension out of overactive and tight muscles. When the cups create suction, a vacuum-effect takes place underneath the skin.
Midwest Muscle & Joint Clinic utilizes a movement-based system in Lawrence, KS to help people move better, and then move often. This is accomplished through the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and the Functional Movement Screen (FMS).
