Another successful MFD session! Myofascial Decompression is a form of what is traditionally known as "cupping". However, with MFD the focus is more on assessing and correcting musculoskeletal movement inefficiencies and in addressing connective tissue dysfunctions, which can include fascial adhesions, trigger-points, scar tissue and others.

Spinal Adjustments go far beyond then just improving posture and relieving pain. The spine is part of the Central Nervous System, everything stems from it. This is a good visual on what vertebrae connects to what organ and what symptoms are felt if there's an issue in that area.

Massage Special!!


Awesome visual example of healthy muscle and fascia. The effects of knots and adhesions to both muscle and fascia. All of this can be prevented by manual therapy like a massage or self therapy using several tools ( Our trigger point therapy class). Massages and TP Classes are available. To schedule or inquire about class dates call or text our office 661.942.5000

We offer self therapy classes.


Cervical pain is all too common these days and as such, patients naturally seek symptomatic relief through medication, injections, heat/ice, topical remedies, massage, chiropractic adjustments, TENS, and others.

ALL of these may have their time and place and have and have been shown to provide relief. However, NONE of these will correct underlying structural issues as seen below. The red lines reveal the shape of this patient's neck curve. The green line shows what a NORMAL neck curve SHOULD be!

When the underlying structure is abnormal as shown below, the stress and load to surrounding tissues (disc, nerves, ligaments, tendons, muscles, fascia, etc.) is always present and always causing distress to these tissues to some degree. In most cases, even if not currently symptomatic, it is merely a matter of time when they likely will be.

The best answer for the patient is to treat BOTH.........meaning treat both the symptoms AND the underlying structural pathology.

To correct this neck curve, we utilize cervical extension traction units, both at home and in-office (if need be) using specific devices, not unlike how braces work with teeth. As correction happens, stress comes off the tissues and real healing begins.

If you have unresolved neck pain or questions regarding this topic, feel free to contact our office.


ā€œI regret making time for self care,ā€ said no one ever!

Make the time!!

Cupping is great for releasing tension and stress and helping lymphatic drainage. Facilitating the lymphatic drainage helps flush out toxins and enhances our immune system. This would be a great compliment to your chiropractic care!

It's National Nap Day!! Good thing we have comfy beds at work..

The term "it's all connected" couldn't be more true than in the human body. Below are sequences of tissue that have been discovered to have an anatomical and functional continuity and connection to each other.

Taking the second picture below (left to right) looking to the back of the body, what this means is that even neck tension or a headache up above can be caused or affected by tissues located down this case, from mid back muscles, from lower back muscles, from hamstring muscles, and even from calf muscles!

This is the reason we teach soft-tissue self therapy workshops both for prevention and for self-treatment of aches and pains. When you understand these connections, you understand why it is important to focus on the entire body, even when your symptoms appear to be localized.

If interested in attending one of our self-therapy workshops, message us!!

Arthritis? Massage Therapy Can Help! | Rick Duenas DC

Arthritis? Massage Therapy Can Help! | Rick Duenas DC The Center for Disease Control estimates that by the year 2030 nearly 67 million people over the age of 18 will be diagnosed with some form of arthritic condition. It is one of the most commonly diagnosed conditions in the United States. While this condition is rarely life-threatening, it is definit...


I often get asked by patients/clients what exactly is a trigger point, how it comes to be, and why it hurts so badly. This is a pretty simple visual of what happens to the muscle fibers and how eventually it forms a trigger point. Unfortunately the only way to break them up is through manual therapy (massage, foam rolling, etc). Of course they can always return based on numerous factors like posture, lifestyle, trauma and beyond. This is why manual therapy is important to incorporate in our daily lives.


On rainy days we study about trigger points...


Back at it! After 1 year of having halted our Trigger-Point Therapy classes since Covid began, we have started teaching once again. It felt great to be back and help patients out. Stay tuned for more!!


I sent my old business card to space!! Nice memory before my last name changed.

How Do You Know That You May Have Plantar Fasciitis?

One of the most common symptoms is that the bottom of your feet hurt in the morning and/or when the first few steps you take feel like a ripping sensation across the bottom of your foot. If this is happening to you, there is a high probability that you have it.

Plantar fasciitis is an acute inflammation of the fascia on the bottom of your foot. Although there are several ways to treat this, treating the fascia directly for various types of abnormalities that develop is of utmost importance.

If your have lost the arch of your foot, custom orthotics will also be needed to help prevent further damage. However, for those orthotics to feel comfortable, the fascia itself has to have had some level of treatment and subsequent healing, otherwise even good quality orthotics are not well tolerated.

If you have non-resolving plantar fasciitis and would like to discuss treatment options, feel free to call our office. (661) 942-5000.
