Services 

We provide our patients with tried technique and the latest technology.

Chiropractic

Chiropractic medicine uses hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments to help align the body’s musculoskeletal structure. Mobility is restored to joints formerly restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event or repetitive stresses.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

Neuromuscular Massage

A specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strain are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms.

FSM

Frequency Specific Microcurrents

The practice of introducing a mild electrical current into an area of damaged soft tissue. This technique treats pain by using low-level electrical current. The current delivered to the body relieves the pain. 

A.M.I.T.

Advanced Muscle Integration Technique

AMIT is a revolutionary systematic treatment designed to help relieve common joint and muscle conditions. This innovative analysis technique identifies problematic or injury-causing dysfunctions. 

Orthopedic Massage 

A particular kind of massage, focused on soft-tissue injury rehabilitation. Goals for an orthopedic massage session typically include decreasing pain, increasing range of motion, and preparing the body to return to normal daily routines and active hobbies.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

Manual Therapy

Functional Dry Needling

Excercise Performance

Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

Spine and Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Redcord/Neurac

Blood Flow Restriction Training

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

A well-established treatment for a number of ailments wherein the body is exposed to 100% oxygen at an atmospheric pressure that is greater than what is typically experienced. Treats decompression sickness, serious infections, and wounds that won’t heal.

EMS

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. EMS is used as a strength training tool for athletes and for injury rehabilitation.

Orthotics

Orthotics are prescribed when there is a forefoot dysfunction. Orthotics help alignment by stabilizing the ankles, knees, and hips in their proper position. Orthotics enable the muscles, legs and tendons to function as a balanced unit.

Hydrotherapy Bed

The Hydrotherapy bed is a convenient, dry, full body massage with the use of pressurized water. Feel the immediate benefits of the traveling jet system, which delivers an “all sides” body massage. The bed can be easily customized to put pressure where needed.

PEMF Therapy

Pulsed Electric Magnetic Field Therapy

PEMF Therapy uses bursts of low-level electromagnetic radiation to heal damaged tissues and bone, to relieve injury-related pain, and even to stimulate organs. PEMF also improves healing times.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is the use of sound waves to treat medical problems, especially musculoskeletal problems like inflammation from injuries (sprains, tendinitis, bursitis). It has been a popular therapy for decades, its use incredibly widespread.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve collected the most common questions, and then answered them below.

Can I even afford this?

Great news! Yes you can afford our services. Because it is our passion to take this amazing treatment to the public, we can’t reach our goals without you. We keep this in mind while setting our prices. We also recognize most people do not have the time to go for treatment for an extended length of time. We strive to get you better within 3 – 6 visits, not the normal 3 – 6 months.

Do you accept insurance?

We do accept most insurance policies. However we are considered “out of network”. Keep in mind, however, that we focus our treatment on getting you better within 3 – 6 visits which makes our treatment affordable.

Are you Doctors of Chiropractic?

The Alliance Sports Medicine Doctors pride themselves in delivering the most advanced care available in injury prevention, rehabilitation and sports performance enhancement. Our care is unique. When you visit Alliance Sports Medicine, we treat the root cause of your injury instead of a superficial review of symptoms. And we are proud to say that 85% of our patients get better and back to what they love within 3 – 6 visits, not the normal 3 – 6 months.

Are you for Athletes only?

No, we treat everybody from all walks of life as well as the professional athlete. We treat patients from infancy to the elderly. Everyone, from the youth athlete to the stay-at-home mom to the weekend warrior to the professional athlete, benefits from our treatment.

Why is Preventative Care so important?

Preventative care is so important because it keeps your body working at a maximum level. It ends up saving time and money because it helps to keep an injury from occurring and helps keep other injuries from getting worse. There is no reason you can’t stay as active as you like if you take care of your body with SRT, good nutrition, and exercise. We have helped so many people regain their youth and vitality by trusting us with their health. Many patients found their way back to a normal lifestyle once their bodies had regained balance through our preventative care.

What is a Class IV laser, how does it work?

In straightforward terms, the cells of tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone and muscles are repaired faster when exposed to laser light. HOW MUCH FASTER? A good rule of thumb is that healing time is reduced by one-half to two-thirds the time it would normally take, all other factors remaining. Simply stated, Laser accelerates healing, increases collagen formation, blocks pain transmitted by nerve cells, reduces swelling and edema and increases lymphatic drainage.

What is the difference between a Class III and Class IV laser?

The difference between the Class III and Class IV is power. Class IV therapeutic lasers, described as high-power laser therapy, offer more power, deeper penetration and a larger surface treatment area.

What is Microcurrent, how does it work?

No, we treat everybody from all walks of life as well as the professional athlete. We treat patients from infancy to the elderly. Everyone, from the youth athlete to the stay-at-home mom to the weekend warrior to the professional athlete, benefits from our treatment.

How are Foot Orthotics beneficial?

Orthotics are utilized when the forefoot function cannot be held. They help to hold the SRT alignment by stabilizing the ankles, knees, and hips in their proper position. The body is now able to hold the treatment longer thereby allowing the muscles, legs and tendons to function as a balanced unit.

What Our Patients Say

Dr. Zoeller immediately diagnosed my back, hip, neck and shoulder injuries and knew exactly what to do. After the initial adjustments, my shoulder was pain free for first time in five years. Highly recommend him for any sports related injuries.

Chip S.

PATIENT

What Our Patients Say

I had been a patient of two chiropractors but my neck and back issues I had never seemed to go away. I inquired with friends and I kept hearing about Dr. Z. I’m glad I decided to give him a try! Unlike other chiropractors, Dr. Z would ask questions to understand what my routine was and what was causing my pain; Dr. Z puts the needs of the patient over making a buck.


It’s been a decade now and needless to say I’ve never gone to anyone else, and I’ve referred numerous friends to him (all of which, who in turn, have referred numerous others). I have nothing but praise for Dr Z and his staff.
